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.

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.

Great service and quality food. Requested a more private table and the waiter immediately seated our table of 3 in the small corner room on the upper level.

Will be back to this location soon!!

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!

Reservations mean nothing; we were in a crowd fighting to even talk to the hostess, who couldn't seat us for at least 30 minutes. We had to scramble to make plans before an 8:00 curtain. Still got the OT points, though, which is a credit to how disorganized they are.

The food was excellent! Our only issue was that the “bottomless” blink champagne isn’t bottomless. You pay for every bottle after the first bottle. We even asked prior to ordering the details of the bottomless champagne and we were given different information. Our bill ended up being double what it should have been.

This was my third time dining in at the restaurant. I order in often as I really like the food.

We ordered the lamb special. It was almost all fat and bone. Very little meat. I wouldn’t order this again as it was very disappointing

My server, Neoni, was fantastic as she was the last time I dined at the restaurant.

Wonderful restaurant. Great buzzy atmosphere, quite harried but friendly. Even with a reservation you always have to wait, but it’s worth it. If you have somewhere to be after dinner, add a half-hour to your reservation time. Great octopus, lamb, Greek salad, fries with feta.

We came here soon after the restaurant opened and loved the food and it had a nice quiet atmosphere. I'm so happy they have so many people who want to eat here, but it has become a nightmare for a nice, relaxing dinner. We went on a Saturday night with a reservation, but our table wasn't ready when we arrived. We waited about 10-15 minutes and were shown to our table. All of the seating is very cramped and the main objective of the staff is just to get the hordes in and out. The food we ordered was delicious, but it all came so quickly (my main course arrived when I was not even halfway through my appetizer). The overall dynamic of the restaurant is so frenetic that it is impossible to feel like you've had a dinner out. I would like to think I will come to this restaurant again, but maybe on a weeknight early in the week when nothing is going on at Carnegie Hall or City Center.

Meh! Terribly noisy and crowded. Chicken Lemon Rice soup had no rice, thin and watery. Sliders were tough balls of meat. Lamb chops overcooked, my friend asked for medium-rare and they were gray, through and through. Service was quick but brusque. Couldn't wait to leave because of the noise level. Price was low, so a reasonable budget option. Other people seemed to be having a good, if raucous, time, but it was not great for me.
