Souvlaki GR offers a little taste of Mykonos in the heart of NYC. After an award-winning food truck and four years of continued success at our Lower East Side location, we have expanded to Midtown in order to continue providing New Yorkers with authentic Greek souvlaki. One step across our threshold, and we hope you"ll be transported to the cobblestone alleys of Mykonos and Santorini in order to enjoy our signature Souvlaki Pitas and other classic staples of Greek cuisine.

Great spot in mid-town for fast and tasty Greek food. Perfect for a pre- or post-performance meal if you're attending Carnegie Hall or NY City Center.

The food was disappointing. The grilled chicken in lemon sauce was dry, flat, and coated in a thick lemon sauce with too much cornstarch. The egg lemon chicken soup was flavorless and mostly broth. The moussaka however was good and I recommend sticking to that or similar baked pasta dishes.

The service was not attentive and the staff seemed preoccupied though the restaurant wasn’t full.

Puzzled because the restaurant was rated highly and near Carnegie Hall, our next destination that night.

Dine elsewhere.

I liked the service and food but the space was too noisy and crowded to relax. I would only return at a less busy time. Also the chairs are so uncomfortable.

We went for lunch. The soutzoukakia meatballs was nothing special. Parts of the beef moussaka were ice cold, we had to send back to heat up. That obviously showed that they were frozen and were being heated up on order, that destroyed the mood.
Baklava was very good.

After going to CityCenter we were looking for a casual spot nearby. Souvlaki was the right spot just down the street. Pita was delicious, lamb chops very good(not cheap), spreads also excellent.

Authentic, delicious, and fairly priced. Though it was a busy Saturday night, the staff was working hard and still took the time to be friendly and attentive. The food was great, the atmosphere really did transport us to Mykonos, and we were absolutely delighted to discover they serve Santorini beer.

This is a great neighborhood place that feels very authentically Greek. It reminded us a lot of the food we ate and the ambiance of places we want in Greece, and the times I’ve been here, a lot of young Greek people seem to frequent the place. The food is great — lots of yummy meat and chicken skewers and keftedes, dips and unusual salads. The best thing is to go with a group and order lots of small plates so you can try many things. The Greek wines and beers are interesting and they give you good advice about what to try.

Disappointed at one of my favorite go-to places, but willing to give them another chance. Only one server, who was harried, and food was uncooked and not up to par with their usual. Hoping it was just an "off" day.

Food was great. Service started well and then our server was nowhere to be found. Food took quite a while to be served. We were told it was because the kitchen was being inspected, but the table next to us got their food long before we did. We had to flag another (busboy?) person down to get our check- never did see our server again. Once we got the bill, we waited and waited and finally walked up to the host to check out. We won’t be back, which is a shame because the food was tasty.

I placed an outdoor reservation for 8pm. When I arrived, I was informed that there weren't any tables available outdoors. When I politely explained to the waitress that I had reserved a table outside, and would be happy to wait for a table, she became very rude and said it wasn't her problem and that there wouldn't be any outdoor tables for the rest of the night. I've eaten at this many times and have never had any previous issues with the service. I understand that working under the stress of a pandemic isn't easy, but that doesn't offer an excuse for rudeness. If you can't guarantee outdoor setting, then don't list it on OPEN TABLE as a reservable option.

For those that don't feel comfortable eating inside yet, I would advise taking your business elsewhere.

Showed up for my 6 p.m. reservation exactly on time, but had to wait for a table. A group of 6 showed up at 6:30 for their 5:30 reservation. They moved a group of 4 who were seated at a large table to MY table and the group that was an hour late to the large table. So instead of seating my group, they told me I had to be "flexible" and made me wait another 20 minutes. I mean, honestly? Rude. I guess they forgot the meaning of customer service. If someone comes an hour late, why should I suffer the consequences?

We had a break from an event and made a reservation. We were seated right away. The octopus was amazing! The Honey Jack Lemonade caused us to drink more than we planned! The service was wonderful! Hercules, our waiter, was so sweet. We even got complimentary ouzo shots at the end of the meal because we "were nice". The only downside is only one bathroom in total for both men and women. But go! We'll be back for sure!
