Good food and mostly good service. When less than perfect service they apologize and comped an appetizer without even asking anything.
Food was very good, seating is a bit tight ( especially if at a table for 2 ) so not much of a place to take a date.

We were a party of 4 on a Saturday night. Arrived at 6:30 and were seated promptly. It was a busy
night. Large party in adjoining room. All of the tables were placed very close to each other. Noise level extremely loud, We found ourselves almost having to yell to converse. Others in my party seemed to like their food. I didn't (Greek platter). Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Service was OK. Nothing special. I don't think I will go back.

Had a party of six- booked through Open Table. Mentioned online it was a birthday. Our party was seated immediately, attentive friendly waitress, food was very good. Wine selection is a little pricy but we enjoyed 2 bottles of Old Vine zin and were happy with the selection. A slice of cake & candle were brought to our table discretely for all to enjoy. Very very nice evening with friends. Thanks, Zizikis!

Staff is always welcoming and friendly. Same people have been there for as long as I can remember. I wonder if it's a family business. Quiet. good for conversations. Food is delicious and service is excellent. Highly recommend the sushi tower, lamb meatballs, calamari and cheese board. Delish! And they have a wine flight too which is fun for tasting. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Family birthday dinner
The food was barely mediocre, at best. The portions were skimpy and the roasted potatoes were burned. The salads were swimming in dressing. The waitress was nice but left the dirty dishes on our table far too long. The night was not busy at all, so we should have had better food. Our experience in October at the Plano store was far superior. The price was so expensive compared to the quality. I recommend closing this one down and focusing on the Plano and Travis sites less they too suffer from the horrible reputation this one will surely cause.

Generally this restaurant is very good. We ate there for a Sunday lunch. The chef didn’t prepare one meal correctly and it had to be redone. When our food finally came out, quite a bit of it was cold and had to be sent back.

We've been going to Ziziki's off and on for years, both this location and the Travis Walk location. This location works because it's relatively close to our home and relatively convenient for some of our Dallas friends. And on this particular occasion we again ate with friends. The food remains good: no one in our party had any complaints. But we all agreed, the Ziziki's of five years ago was noticeably better. One of us had a cocktail and it was better than average. But otherwise our experience was mediocre at best -- mediocre enough to make all of us wonder aloud (when we left the restaurant) if we'd ever go back. The service was at best fair -- our wait staff seemed to take a dislike to our party when we didn't order appetizers and weren't instantaneously ready with our order. But we were at Ziziki's precisely because we wanted a neighborhood restaurant where flipping the table wasn't the first priority (and we wanted to have more than 40 minutes to catch up with friends). Our reservation was at 7:00 PM. By 8:00, the restaurant was clearing out and by 8:30, on a Friday, we were one of just a handful of occupied tables and wait staff were busily prepping the restaurant for the next day. All in all, then, poor service and poor ambiance more than offset whatever remaining quality the food retains.

Only complaint is it was our anniversary and the hostess sat us at a tiny table near the bar and tv. Had hoped for something more but the food was excellent and our waiter was really nice! Can't stress how great the food was!

The food service was slow and we were on a time crunch so that was our only issue. Got there at 5:45 and main meal didn’t arrive til 6:45 so we only had 15 min to eat, pay bill and leave.

Had we not had to be somewhere it wouldn’t have been and issue

Lamb souvlaki was so tough I couldn’t cut some pieces. Potatoes were burned. Not the Zizikis I have loved for years. Only one waiter for our side of patio so I couldn’t tell him until later in the meal.

In a busy neighborhood on a friday night, this was a comfortable and attractive spot. The noise level was very good for carrying on conversation at our table of four. The wine by the glass seemed a bit pricey, but the handmade cocktails were very good. The food was tasty and the only complaint was that my husband's lamb gyro meat was a bit chewy. Our waitress was excellent and had a very pleasant manner. We will go back again.

My husband and I have dined at Ziziki's several times for special occasions. We recently realized that they offer a Sunday Brunch and thought we would try it. Their selection was lovely and the 10¢ mimosas were bonus. We will be going again.

The lamb and chicken were both tough . The potatoes which are normally excellent were over done. Noise level was such that any conversation was impossible.
