    We normally really enjoy the restaurant. However we ordered the meat platter and the special (lamb risotto) and weren’t impressed. Meat wasn’t succulent. Service remains excellent

    Great neighborhood Greek Restaurant. Nice selection of salads, the eggplant spread was good but a drop lemony, the Bronzino special main course was excellent…I would have preferred a substitution for the dandelions which were too tough. Overall, a wonderful, friendly local Greek restaurant.

    Our second time there and it did not disappoint. The spanakopita appetizer was excellent. Flaky crust and yummy filling. My husband had the salmon which was cooked perfectly and delicious. I had the chicken souvlaki and it was excellent. Our server, Jack, was wonderful. He answered all our questions and checked on us several times during our time there. Looking forward to our next meal there in a couple of weeks.

    Yasouvlaki charges two dollars for a side dish substitution! That’s insane. Want extra tzatziki sauce?? You’ll pay for that too! Want cream with your coffee? Better bring your own there’s no cream even though Whole Foods is right across the street! This place nickel and dimes you to death! Food and service are good but are overshadowed by the annoying surcharges and very tight seating.

    There were four people in our party. We shared two appetizers, hummus and spanakopita. Both were good. Three of us shared the grilled seafood platter. It was more than enough for three people and was delicious. The fourth person enjoyed a yummy salmon dish. We all loved it and said we would definitely go back. As a matter of fact, we were there three weeks ago and two of us are going back tonight.

    Really disappointed. Wine was great and reasonably priced - service was great but food was really sub par. We had octopus - mushy and no doubt frozen. taramasalata - I don’t know what this was but tasted off - grape leaves were ok - pita was stale - clearly frozen. Was shocked to taste pork skewer - frozen - grizzle and just old. Lamb chops were ok. Hop over to Astoria for real Greek food. Although I have to say the crowds keep coming in - baffling….
