    Grilled squid, moussaka, 2x Pantheon shrimp. Everything was perfect, including the salad and the honey cake, gratuitously offered. Appealed to people from both Detroit and Montréal

    Excellent service, good food, classic tastes and flavors, and generous portions. It is an excellent choice for dinner and would recommend it to people who are looking for an authentic experience on the Danforth. Place was PACKED so make sure you make a reservation! It was so packed, wall to wall, that it was difficult to hear your own conversation, but the place was certainly lively and energetic. Too noisy for my style but the vibe is definitely a lively one if that's your cup of tea!

    Incredible food. The shrimp saganaki is one of my favourite dishes of any restaurant in the city and the chicken souvlaki is the best I’ve ever had. Amazing service as well. We’ll definitely be back

    We have enjoyed the food and the service at Pantheon for several years now. We consider Pantheon to be "the best" Greek restaurant in the entire neighbourhood. The staff are attentive, the chicken melts in your mouth and the honey cake is the perfect end to a great meal!

    What a wonderful time, the whole team was just so welcoming! My mom was in town and I wanted to take her up to the Danforth for a full Greektown experience. I’d never been there but have heard good things and they really delivered! Definitely adding Pantheon to my list of recommendations for other friends/family coming into town

    Maybe it was an off night, but we were highly disappointed in the lack of service and to some degree the food quality. The service was inattentive, I ordered wine to come with the meal and it never came, a runner brought and cleared our main meal, where the greek salad had one olive, the server did not check in once during the main meal despite being in close proximity at other tables, and then a runner brought a dessert to the table for our special occasion, (which was thoughtful), but it had an allergen in it I could not eat, and luckily recognized and did not eat. We waited for our bill so long that we were about to go to the hostess to ask for it, only to finally catch the eye of our server. There are lots of options on the Danforth, again maybe an off night, but we aren't willing to try again.

    Best fish and seafood in the city. Came here with my family and some friends from out of town and everyone enjoyed their meal and experience. Would recommend reservations to avoid wait times. We opted for patio so we waited not to long for a table. We were offered a drink as well while waiting which was thoughtful of them. Will return and recommend to friends and family!

    Pushy server. Hardly had time for a drink and the included salad was there, had not finished that when mains arrived. Had not finished that when the bill and payment machine. In and out in under 40 minutes, great for the restaurant, more turns, but lousy for a date night….will find a different spot next time.

    We have been here twice and enjoyed our first visit, about 6 months ago, much more than the second recent visit. The fried calamari appetizer was very good. Four out of five of us wanted to have the lamb souvlaki dinner, but were told that they were out of it. Then we asked for the roast lamb, but were told that there was only one portion left. One of our party ordered that, but found it too fatty. Three of us enjoyed the pork souvlaki with the the delicious potatoes. One ordered the salmon and liked it although found it too salty. The music was blaring inside, so we had to shout at each other to be heard. Perhaps it would have been better to sit outside. The service was excellent and attentive.

    This was the second time that I dined at Pantheon within eight days. It is always a favourite venue to gather with friends and share a great meal. The food is consistently fabulous! Generous portions sizes, so terrific value for your hard earned money. The grilled calamari is amazing and my friends really enjoyed their lamb chops, chicken souvlaki and fried calamari. We'll be back!

    Thank you for accommodating my family for my partner's big birthday which I wanted to celebrate in authentic Greek islander family style. Patio tables are difficult to get for big parties but staff came through. The evening was a huge success and I was thrilled that Pantheon, my Danforth favourite for 20++++ years, managed to survive Covid hard times, although with some changes to staff and the space. To me, Pantheon is the most authentic Greek restaurant on the Danforth, reminding me of my visits to Naxos, Mykonos, Corfu and Lefkas. I ordered up a feast of boldly-seasoned cold dips, crispy fried calamari, battered and fried (grease-free!) zucchini and eggplant slices, two orders of saganaki, a dozen giant and perfectly-grilled shrimp, tender lamb chops, great French fries and roast potatoes, juicy chicken and pork skewers .... the works. The saganaki was presented in an energetic (and traditional) fiery display by one of the waiters I remember from the "before times." he was also in charge of the operatic "happy birthday" cake display. Our main waiter Dimitri was confident and competent. He totally understood what I was trying to do. Yes, the young busboys could use a little more training and experience which is typical of these times but they tried their best. The night was a huge success and I am very grateful. I plan to become a regular again!
