We arrived through a friend who recommended the place. Missing service and the reason, one waitress served too many tables .. We were seated in a narrow aisle and in a tiny table that is suitable for a couple of children and not adults (probably due to the aisle space limit). The food itself did not glorify our much-loved Greek tradition.

After decades of sampling Lincoln Center area restaurants, we have finally found a restaurant where we hope to dine for decades to come. It starts from the moment you walk in. A helpful friendly staff greets you (even more surprising because of the lack of food service workers during the pandemic) and was quickly followed by the best martini I have ever had on the west side of Manhattan. The food is also terrific and authentically Greek. Get the whole fish but other items are equally good. And finally, the price is exactly right - fair and reasonable.

Food was good overall, especially enjoyed the octopus and the middle eastern salad though the spanakopita was a bit dry and slightly burned. Nice service and very quite ambience.

The Greek Kitchen was FABULOUS! Fantastic food and comfortable outdoor seating. The menu is varied and my Mixed Grill was delicious beyond belief and perfectly prepared. I had a light wine (Greek) that was lovely and my niece had an excellent herbal tea. They had a nice variety of teas. The Baklava was yummy. The Greek Kitchen is on my list of favorite restaurants!

Greek kitchen never disappoints. The food is always delicious. The service is always quick and friendly. The feta sousami appetizer is our favorite and the mixed grill. Great desserts and perfect cappuccino. Their new outdoor seating is beautiful and peaceful.

We ate outside - they have two sheds: one on 10th Ave. and one on 58th St. The service was outstanding, our waitress a delight.
The food was excellent and the portions - even desserts - were ample.
There was a faint sewage odor - we wondered if it might be from moisture accumulating under the wooden platform which makes the shed level with the sidewalk. And as the night wore on there were more emergency vehicles arriving at Mt. Sinai West, across the street.

I have to admit that I love Greek food but haven’t find anything exciting in NYC at least post pandemic. The place is good but nothing special. My Greek soup came in a creamy form. Never seeing it like that before. Nothing special very little ingredients. Meatballs were really good. Greek fries were saggy, both orders snd the octopus was chewy. The baklava was very good snd a generous portion and the Greek coffee was amazing
I’ll give it a second chance

Wonderful, neighborhood restaurant. Food is fresh, well-prepared and delicious. This restaurant never disappoints and the only one I order in from. The calming blue & white decor provides a perfect ambience for a lovely meal where you can easily talk and hear one another. Sparse tables inside still honor distancing from other guests. Prices are excellent.

We think they didn’t expect too many customers yesterday, my white wine was warm, my lamb chops was hard to o eat, wrong knife. The waitress and bus boy were very nice and tried their best.

Delicious food and great selection of Greek wines, reasonable priced. We loved the whole grilled fish options and the gigantes were perfection. Also enjoyed a Greek salad, saganaki, and the Greek fries.

The service was a little slow but the wait staff was charming and we loved the experience.

La comida bien, correcta cantidad calidad y precio. Ahora bien que te quieran cobrar 20% de propina porque les da la gana... así sin preguntar..... es un ABUSO con todas la letras y mayúsculas.
Les pedimos explicaciones y nos dicen que estamos en Mamhattan, que hay que pagar propina. Pero la decisión del porcentaje o cuantía de la propina lo decide el cliente.
Lo siento pero no!!!!
