    This was our first time but Mythology was excellent. I had the lamb shank that fell off the bone and it was delicious. My wife had the Greek classic duo of Pastitsio and Moussaka (ask for it without the extra the tomato sauce if you want it to be authentic). Their take on guacamole (greekamole) by adding feta and whipping it was amazing too. The chef came out to greet us which is always really cool and our server was so friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back.

    The whole experience was really odd. The restaurant was completely empty except maybe 3 tables and the décor was interesting to say the least. The menu was confusing... Greek food, Italian food, Mexican food and Southern food. The food tasted pre-made... like it had been defrosted. It wasn't the worst experience ever but I definitely wouldn't go back.

    There were over 10 choices on the menu that drew me in to consider ordering. I chose the Memphis Dipped Fried Chicken with two sides, onion rings and Greek fries. Such a deal, and what a taste treat. I look forward to coming back to try the others I passed up this time.

    The wait staff was outstanding but the food was sub par. There were hardly any people in this restaurant. Kind of felt sorry for them. A couple things were on the menu, but not available. Food was overpriced, but I am sure that is due to current economy. This restaurant needs to decide if it is Italian or Greek. I think it really wants to be a Greek restaurant, that is why we went; but has many Italian items that should not be on menu. Sadly we will not be returning due to quality of the food, but really wanted to give a shout out to the wonderful wait staff!

    Best gnocchi I’ve ever had!! My husband and I went to Mythology on a Friday night before a show. Wow! Everything was so delicious. We shared the calamari as an appetizer (yummy). He had the lamb shanks that were very good. I had the biggest plate of gnocchi (definitely could have fed 2-3 people) and they were outstanding!! The restaurant’s decor is fabulous. I love the painted ceilings. The lights are wrapped in cotton and have flashing lights in them to look like there is a storm brewing. It would have been cool if there was thunder noise around. It was very quiet for a Friday night. I can’t wait to go back!! I heard they are getting heated igloos for the winter. COUNT ME IN!!!!

    The food was quite mediocre for the drastic prices. I paid 43 dollars for likely one of the most bland tasting meals I’ve ever had.

    The special of the day - barbecue chicken on a roll. Very salty and favor was off. I ate half and threw the other half out. The kiwi martini was horrible. The dolmas were perfect! And I love the gyros. I should have gotten that instead.

    Upsides - large and varied menu and loved the Greekamole with chips! Downsides - dry gyro meat, boring garlic sauce and Greek fries. Also didn’t have wines that are on the menu, so not recommended for a special occasion. Disappointed.

    Chef Jeff always prepares top notch food. We had a great experience. If I had one little complaint? The wait staff we had needs to understand the cocktail side of the business better. I ordered an Old Fashion with Three Chords Bourbon. When she returned she said they had run out of Three Chirds so she used Johnny Walker instead. I scratched my head a bit but, like Johnny walker as well so.

    They won't be in business more than a year. The menu is scattered and the pairings don't make sense. The food is fair at best , cold and bland. Owner was yelling @ wait staff and we were the only ones in the dining area.

    Mythology Restaurant & LoungeResponded on August 6, 2022Well everything you stated has not happened and we turned your review in to open table The entire staff read your review and stated the same thing I will let nature take its course.

    The waiter was great even though it was his first day. All the meals but one were delicious. Chicken pita was over cooked. Only down size was charging $1. for a take home box. Waiter apologized about it but it seems they could have absorbed the price somehow

    Friends visiting town, we decided to try Mythology for the first time. Clever drinks, good appetizers, generous food proportions. Patio seating was fine. This was apparently grand opening week. We absolutely overlooked after-dinner coffee and desserts.
