Enjoyed a great dinner with a nice bottle of wine outside on their patio. Very personable server that took care of our needs. Will return in the near future.

Beautifully flavorful and fresh Mediterranean food. Try the dips and Greek Platter for a lovely sampling.

A really good neighborhood restaurant. Over the years, the menu has become like a member of the family. We seldom stray from our favorites. Last Friday night proved to be a minor exception as our waiter (he was fantastic) "sold" us on the summer salad with pineapple. We were glad that he did. Delicious. The artichoke hummus, lamb lollipops and chicken gyro were dependably good.

As always our food at Ziziki's was very good. We shared a bottle of rose and then had the "Mediterranean Bread" as an appetizer. The bread and toppings tasted quite fresh. We had chicken and lamb gyros for our main dish and they were tender and tasty.

The restaurant could improve its outdoor dining area. Their spot on Travis has such an attractive patio. Why can't they put large plants on top of the stone walls of the Preston/Forest location so you don't have to look at all the parked cars in the CVS parking lot. How about adding a fountain? Maybe some outdoor drapes to soften the space. We enjoy Ziziki's but they could make their outdoor area MUCH nicer.

Food was great. Service was great. We got in with no wait which was very nice. There were a lot of noisy diners but that was the only drawback to the evening. Overall a wonderful evening and I can’t wait to go again.

The food was excellent, the greek spreads were amazing, and the Mousaka fantastic. Unfortunately, we were seated at a table close to a group of ladies that were extremely noisy and it disturbed our dinner a bit. Service was ok, but a little slow.

As usual the food at Ziziki’s was delicious. Typically we have had excellent service at this location, but our server last night was definitely not up to par. Hopefully, she’s new and it’s just a training issue? It was also warm in the dining room. Next time we’ll ask for table nearer the door where it was cooler.

Hummus was great. Calamari was not crispy. Salad was okay. My friend and I shared everything and both got sick. Don’t know whether it was the lettuce or the calamari.

Hummus appetizer was delicious, but the portion size was stingy given the price. Service was good enough. We were on the patio, and it felt like we were forgotten much of the time. All four entrees were delicious.

I was surprised how expensive it’s gotten. The salad that use to be $18 is now $21! That’s ridiculous for lunch! You have maybe just priced me out of returning.

It's not the same as I remember when I knew the owners of the Travis Walk restaurant.
Saturday's lunch was not as expected. The hostess appears indifferent and our waiter was very confused. He did not bring our appetizer until after bringing our lunch. Very disappointing.

Booked this restaurant for my wedding anniversary meal and I wasn't disappointed. Excellent choice of Greek food and it made it hard to chose. The service was excellent, after we finished our starter, we waited a whe until we got our mains. This was great for me as I don't like to feel I'm being rushed.
The food tasted good and you got plenty on your plate..
Will definitely be going back.

We ate outside and it was very noisy because there were lots of patrons on a lovely cool evening. I enjoyed my last meal here so much that I ordered the exact same thing - the salmon filet. I also substituted the roast potatoes for the couscous like last time. They are so delicious. I also tried a different dessert this time and loved it - the baklava ice team cake. They also had a robust excellent tasting decaf coffee.
