We have been here and to Hollywood before numerous times, but never had the Gyro. What a major disappointment. They use a preprepared Gyro meat, rather then cutting it fresh of the Rotisserie, as any authentic Greek restaurant would. Other foods were fresh and tasty, but when you go for the Gyro and get what we got, it is a major letdown. Will certainly remember not to order it if we ever go back.

We sat diwn and moticed it was still happy hr (7pm) and asked the waitress if we could get happy hr prices for the drinks and she sent the manager over and he said no. That was not nice of him. We were seated next to a very noisy party and could hardly hear ourselves think. The food was not good. I wouldn't go back or recommend the place.

The food was well prepared and very good, however the service was poor. We sat for 10-15 minutes before asking a waiter passing by who our server was. A waitress came over a short time later and said she could wait on us as no one had. She was pleasant but would disappear for long periods of time, mixed up a drink order, offered dessert to one person in the party, then disappeared and had to be tracked down for the check. The food was very good but the restaurant is very crowded with old wooden chairs and tables place so closely together that wait staff has trouble accessing tables.

It had been one of my favorite restaurants but last might was awful. They must have gotten too popular and have gone downhill. We kept being told the kitchen was backed up and when we finally got food it was just ok. We kept getting ignored. Was our last time there- wont go back.

We went there on a Saturday night in March therefore it was very crowded. Our waiter said there was a large party in the "back" so they didn't have enough menu's. After approximately 10 minutes we received menus. We placed our drink and appetizer order, our drinks were brought to the table in a fair amount of time when we told our waiter that we have no silverware or napkins. The appetizers arrived and still no utensils. So the hot appetizers were at best warm when we finally received utensils. Our main course was good.
Before I would recommend this restaurant to anyone I would like to go back, maybe in May or June when the area is less crowded to give it another shot.

Nice restaurant on Atlantic Avenue in the middle of the busiest night scene. Menu was very different from the typical Delray menu with lots of interesting small plates as well as full meals. Interesting Greek wines, there was a belly dancer for some different entertainment. Prices very reasonable for downtown Delray Beach.

The service was good but it was a strange night. For some reason,they didn’t get a delivery and were out of just about everything on the menu. This was on a Monday night. Main course delivered right when we got appetizers and was sent back and returned 15 minutes later cold. They did the right thing and corrected it, and the main course was fine.
During this time, the waiter kept saying I’ll keep the drinks coming and kept our drinks filled and at the end brought out some free desserts, however,we were charged for all the drinks, which he claimed was a misunderstanding. They called to confirm the reservation that afternoon, but didn’t say anything about being out of literally 1/2 the menu. Would i try it again? Probably, but would call beforehand to remind them of the experience...

Not a good experience. Was looking forward to good Greek food with my mother her friend and my husband. To start with they didn't have any tzatziki. What Greek restaurant doesn't have tzatziki?? I'm speechless but we carried on with appetizers, the dolmades were pastie and again, no tzatziki :-( the mussels were just okay, the only good appetizers were the spanakopita and the zucchini fritters. Our friend ordered the moussaka and discovered it was freezing in the center. The manager came over and apologized for the lack of tzatziki, stating that the authentic Greek yogurt didn't come in. Personally I would have sent someone to the store and doctored up store-bought rather than have a Greek restaurant with no tzatziki. No offers of compensation were made until we got dinner that was frozen in the middle, which of course we did not pay for. The waiter told me not to leave a tip but I don't think it was all his doing. Although waiting for tea and water to be refilled was an uncomfortable time. Needless to say will go back to the other Greek restaurants we've been to before. Sorry for the rant but everyone was so disappointed it was a miserable night.

We went for happy hour and were very disappointed with the portion size of the appetizers. the flavors were good (other than the tasteless ribs ) but no more than 2 bites each for 2 people. We also ordered a regular gyro platter, which was tasty and an ample portion. It was hard to get the waiter's attention as it was very busy. I'd probably go back at an off hour and get something other than happy hour. The waiter made a mistake with the check, but was very quick to correct it. It was easy to use the valet parking, and a reduced rate was offered with validation by the restaurant.

Would definitely go back because the food was excellent and our server was friendly and informative and the complimentary hummus was our favorite dish but the courses were poorly timed and we waited 25 minutes to get the car from valet which ended the evening on a poor note.

The food is quite good and the restaurant makes every effort to see that you are happy in your food. We also had a good waiter who was efficient and well educated on the menu. The inside Noise level is brutal and intolerable.
