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.

Very crowded, but efficient service to be admired due to cramped space. Food is very good and this brings us back whenever in the neighborhood.

Had a 6:00 rez (to allow time to make 7:30 show) - finally seated at 6:40. Clearly they either overbooked or more likely accepted too many earlier walk-in customers. Space was way too tight and way too loud. Food was OK. Service was highly impersonal.

I came here before the theater with a friend and we sat at the bar. The inside is very tight, but the ambiance, friendly service, and great food outweighed the close quarters. We would definitely come here again!!

Too crowded, my moussaka was cold, had to be sent to be reheated. Lamb chops were pretty good as grilled octopus. Good location if going to Carnegie Hall

The food was delicious and very reasonably priced for NYC. One thing to note is that it’s a small place with a lot of tables, so noise level was high on a Saturday night and the seats were tight! It didn’t bother us but it could be a factor for others

Good location and good food, but the tables are so super close together you can barely move. And even tho we had a reservation, we stood in a long line that snaked out the door for a long time which caused stress as we had planned for plenty of time before theater. The bright spot is the bartender who was awesome.

Food was good but it was so loud and crowded inside it made dinner pretty unpleasant. The waiter messed up my order, probably because he couldn’t hear me. Bummer.

Very busy and bustling. Tasty food, especially the lamb and potatoes. Pleasant but harried maitre d’s and waitstaff. Might want to work on the timing of reservations, had to wait longer than I’d like. Still, we ate there two nights in a row and were happy we did.

Lamb burgers were outstanding. Avgolomeno worth skipping. Staff attentive. Noise level climbed as lunch hour wore on. Not meant to be a posh place so ambiance was perfect.

The food was good and the prices reasonable, but the food wasn't good enough to make up for the crowded condition (we were all but sitting in the laps of the folks at the next table) and the noise level. The noise level exceeded my pain threshold, and while you could here someone sitting right next to you if they talked in your ear, you couldn't hear anyone across the table. In addition, the shrimp was served in a sauce with the shrimp tails on. A definite no-no unless you prefer to eat only part of each shrimp or maybe prefer getting sauce all over you.

We will not go back.

This was second time-first was dinner on Friday eve which was a bit too frenetic. Took son there for birthday lunch and, aside from the bottleneck situation at the entrance and the small wobbly tables crowded together...food, service, portions etc. perfect. A fun, noisy, crowded midtown place for authentic Greek food recommended by a Greek friend who goes there all the time.

Grilled octopus,greekmeatballs,horitiki, chicken souvlaki, pastitsio,lamb chops, greek sausage, mixed grilled vegtables,and octopus stew, were all cooked to perfection. Greek salad enough for 2. Ozu was delicious and baklava to die for!
Great service, not rushed, accommodated food allergies as well. Busy but the kitchen was great in getting out our meals.

They sat us at the bar. The bar tables have poles in the middle of them, I now have bruises on my legs. If you make a reservation, you shouldn’t be seated at the bar. We ordered an appetizer dip. The waiter should have informed us that the same one came with our meal, we might have ordered/tried a different kind. Just an overall lack of caring and information. Won’t be going back.
