Always a fantastic experience! As Greeks, we are picky about Greek food and the flavors are spot on here. Portions are generous, great ambience and service always, and really good value. You must go!

The quality of the food and hospitality continues to be great. A bit more of space would not hurt, though the small current footprint does add to the character. Also it would be nice to add coffee to the menu. Keep up the good work. Will be back again soon.

A friend and I were visiting the city and happened upon this adorable place via a random open table search. We were famished an hour before our reservation and they happily accommodated us (no small feat in a 50-seat establishment). The service was quick, efficient, and friendly. And the food. Oh my goodness. I am Greek and this took me back to yia yia’s house—with a slightly modern twist. It felt like we were dining in Greece. Highly recommend!!

Good greek food in a very small space. Nice vibrant environment. Service was not great as the place was too busy and not enough wait staff. Ordered some sauce to dip the fries in and was charged $7.50 !

We have been to Souvlaki at least three times before and it has become one of our "go to" restaurants whenever we visit NYC. The food is very authentic and all the wines are Greek which we really enjoy drinking. It is nice to try to pair up a Greek wine with a Greek dish and the staff is very helpful in this regard. Keep doing the good job you are doing!

Disinterested service, cramped, rickety teeny metal tables you can’t put legs under and so cheap they fall over easily, don’t bother asking questions about the food because they can’t hear you and seem bothered you have a question, the music is absolutely deafening that your ears pop when you finally squeeze out of your seat and crawl through masses of people and angry rude wait people- the food though is cheap and very good- too bad going there is such a miserable experience- get delivery

It was insanely packed and overbooked on a Saturday night. There were 20 people waiting for their tables. All had reservations. I was told a 30 minute wait for my reservation after I'd already waited 10 minutes. It was packed to the point of being a fire hazard and they're honestly lucky they don't get shut down. I've been a fan since they were just a food truck, and I tell people to go there for a reasonable meal in midtown, but I will never recommend or go back again. They are unbelievably irresponsible, and really don't seem to care at all about their customer's experience or safety.

And if you're stuck on a place to go in the neighborhood - There's a La Esquina one block away.

This is my new favorite restaurant! Delicious food, reasonable prices, convenient to City Center and Broadway.

But best of all is the always friendly and accommodating service. You are welcomed with open arms and made to feel special. And this is with a packed house and line trailing out the door and down the block! Everyone is terrific from the host to the wait staff, but we especially loved our awesome waitress, Aikateríni! So much so that a visit isn’t complete without seeing her now.

This restaurant is a must do! But be sure to make a reservation!

SR Midtown is a small gem in the heart of the city, with Authentic Greek food the Lamb chops are my favorites and the green salads The moussaka is so rich and delicious the wine choices are not big but we did find a white wine that we enjoyed
the space is tight so if you can go early in the evening I would do that and then walk to whatever show you are seeing

A group of six youngish seniors tried this restaurant for the first time before a jazz at lincoln center concert. We all thought the food was excellent and the service prompt, efficient and friendly. For a restaurant in midtown (56th off 6th ave), the prices can't be beat. It is a cute place, but two things to note, especially for our demographic: it is very small with tiny tables, and quite noisy when full. And even before 6 on a Friday it was packed, even at the small bar. A definite recommend; just be aware of the space and noise issues if that's a concern for you.

A few changes at Souvlaki GR since my last visit. They now offer a cocktail menu (always offered cocktails but I never knew what their specialties were). And a few staff changes which I'm a little on the fence about. I miss the regular hostess, but the new person is courteous and efficient - service good, food great.

The restaurant consistently has good food. However, it is very small inside. So, the night we went, it was just soooooo loud that you could not even hear yourself speak. Plus it was much too overbooked.

Good food, quick service. It was a bit noisy and the tables were crowded together but the food was worth it. We were heading to the theatre so we appreciated that we were able to get in and out quickly. They don't have a bar and we weren't offered any alcoholic beverages but I was later told they serve Greek wine. I think they also had specials but we weren't told about them. The people who were seated next to us were given a second menu so I assumed those were specials. No matter, we liked what we ordered -- Greek Salada, Spanikopita and kabobs to share. It was just enough for the three of us. They only had one dessert (although I thought I saw other desserts being served at other tables), which was yogurt with honey and walnuts. It was also ver good. I am planning to return because it was good food and good value. I also want to know what I missed!
