I’m a regular customer and normally the food is outstanding. This time the chicken was tough and undercooked. I had a guest with me so I didn’t send it back. New cook?

It was a beautiful night and our friends joined us with our dogs on the patio. We had great service and the food was delicious. It was a pleasant experience.

Excellent meal and ambiance. Loved the ease of booking online with Open Table. We were seated at our exact reservation time and were pleased that the noise level was low which allowed us to talk without shouting. Servers were professional and not intrusive. One of our foursome needed a gluten free meal and were pleased to know they have gluten-free pita bread. An excellent meal all in all. We will be back!

Enjoyed Ziziki’s even though a touch loud for my taste. Had the chicken Mediterranean which was quite juicy. Chicken can get dry but this was full of juicy tenderness if a bit bland. Service was a bit slow although our server was delightful. Perhaps there was a no-show during our serve’s shift? Will definitely return! Good value.

Upon arrival everything was great, we got seating real fast, we received our first drink wishing a few minutes. The first 30 min or so were great. We were all there to celebrate my birthday!
The rest of my group arrived and restaurant started getting more busy and it took a long time for my other friends to get serve and get their first drink. They ran out of grapefruit juice to make mimosa, therefore my best friend didn't get her first drink for a long time, because server had ran out and instead of coming and letting her know, she just didn't drop her a drink. Finally she brought a mimosa to my friend (cranberry version since there was no more grapefruit) maybe 15 min later she went to drop 2 grapefruit mimosa to the table next to us. My best friend was very upset, we asked server why and she came with a poor excuse.I went to asked who is the manager, he was the replacing manager, he told me they were short staff that day. He started listening to my story, server arrived and started yelling; you are saying I am lying. Once server yelled, Manager didn't want to hear why I was upset/dissapointed about the fact that she dropped grapefruit mimosa to the table next to us when my best friend waiting our 30 min to get her first mimosa. He didn't want to listen and treated to get me out of the restaurant, when I remained calm and only asked him to listen to my experience. He finished by saying, go sit, we will take care of you.
Well, treating me to get me out of restaurant on my birthday when I was only trying to express how disappointed we got told there was no more grapefruit juice and that the other table received grapefruit mimosa. I never yelled and was being very polite, but manager customer service was definitely NOT appropriate.
Yes at the end, he didn't charge for my brunch (my birthday & inconvenience,I guess) but the experience was ruined since he couldn't listen or apologize, instead just treat me to get me out when I had done nothing wrong

I ordered the Greek platter with the moussaka instead of the spanikopita and we received a plate with the spanikopita, no pasticio and no moussaka. He frankly brought 5e moussaka but no pastichio.

I was genuinely blown away by the food!

I am a long-time Chef, Restaurant & Bar GM, and Luxury Hotel Operations Director, so giving this type of glowing feedback is not only somewhat rare, but more importantly, is very well deserved.

The entire experience was on point. The service, ever- present, but not over-bearing. My server made great recommendations, was sincere and honest, and quickly earned my trust, and therefore my patronage.

Again, the food was impressive; the portion size, the freshness, the sophisticated plating, the layers of flavor, the timeliness of the courses, I cannot think of a single hiccup. The Sunday Brunch with free Mimosas was extremely well-executed, and you could tell that much love had gone into the preparation, display, and replenishment.

The shaved lamb (all natural and free range) Gyro was something to take note of, to write home about, to go to Ziziki’s for!!!

Kudos to the entire team! Well done!!

LOVED the Ziziki bread, goat cheese cakes and lamb lolly-pops. The service was outstanding. But the calimari was very below par and chardonnays by the glass were limited.

Good fresh ingredients, good recipes for Greek classics. The service was friendly and VERY competent. Some of us had the moussaka which was tasty but also tasted like it had been made days ahead and reheated. The Greek salad had the odd inclusion of a spring salad mix. The watermelon in the special salad wasn't ripe. The restaurant felt like it was not up to the standards of the original when it opened many years ago.

One of our old favorites was disappointing this time. Fried calamari app was just warm and the batter had little flavor. The olives were way overly salty and not really edible. Wine by the glass was overpriced for the labels/quality. Service was OK, but we did not feel special.

Fathers Day 2019 Brunch was a huge disappointment and surprise since Ziziki's is my favorite Greek go-to.
I think the kitchen focus was output due to crowd. Greek dishes were not good , but I will try again for a possible 5 rating on my next visit without guests.

What's happened to our beloved Ziziki's?! You must have changed suppliers for your yogurt because your Ziziki sauce isn't delicious anymore!! Normally we can't stop eating the roasted potatoes and Z sauce but this time the potatoes were almost burnt and had no flavoring on them and the sauce tasted like the only flavor was garlic without all your normal herbs! This used to be one of our go-to places with our extended family. Unfortunately we've now crossed you off the list

Hostess was unbelievably rude. Didn't greet us, just stared at me with a crappy look until I spoke. She also didn't understand why seating 5 at a table for 4 was not okay, even though I had a reservation for 5 that I made weeks ago. Luckily for the restaurant, one person canceled last-minute so we got a 4-top and they didn't have to worry about seating 5 of us comfortably... since obviously that was an inconvenience.

We then sat for 10 minutes with no one coming to our table. It took me getting up and asking if drink service was offered during the brunch buffet for someone to come help us.

Food was okay to good. Highlights: lemon cod, artichoke hummus, eggs with feta, tomato, and basil, lamb meatballs, and all the smoked salmon I could eat, even if it was cheap and chewy. Middle of the road: drunken mushrooms, cold white pasta, and greek salad that I could put together myself. Lowlights: the "bagels" were Thomas mini bagels and not actual bagels like I was expecting. Spanakopita was strangely sour and very off-putting. Chicken souvlaki was dryyyyyyy. So dry. The bottom of the lamb souvlaki bin was overcooked dry meat. Mimosas were served in giant wine glasses and have very very little alcohol. It just tasted like OJ.

Also, huge point of note: don't list things on your website that you don't actually have. The brunch menu on the website says it includes red pasta and grilled fish with red sauce. I can forgive the latter being absent because the cod (funny enough, not listed) was so good. But the menu also says it includes "Chef Made to Order Omelet Station (variety of toppings)." This is not true. My husband and my mother and I were all very much looking forward to this, but the Preston location does not have it. So disappointing. This needs to be taken off the site.

For $25 per person, I expected much higher quality. Can't say we will return.
