All the entrees we ordered we terrific. Portion size was large (and I have a pretty healthy appetite). We could have easily shared a meal and been satisfied, especially when you consider appetizers.

Either way, I still highly recommend the restaurant.

I met up with family while we were here. Everyone enjoyed the food - we’re all vegetarian & there was plenty on the menu for us. They were definitely accommodating - I asked to move tables since I was cold (right under the AC) & they moved us over as soon as the the next table opened up. The food was standard for Greek food! No surprises here.

We had a lovely dinner. My friend had the red snapper which she said was excellent and I had an appetizer of fried feta with olives and figs on top, something I have never had before and which was superb and then rib lamb chops, grilled perfectly with lemon roasted potatoes. Everything was top notch and the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and competent. I recommend The Greek Kitchen highly !

Food was amazing and very reasonable. The wait staff was helpful and attentive. I would totally recommend this place for lunch before a matinee. It wasn't that far of a walk to Gershwin theater from the restaurant. I am definitely coming back here.

I loved everything about this place. Haven't found great Greek food on the UWS and this was the perfect spot. Dinners are reasonably priced and come with hefty side portions. Would recommend getting the mix of cold appetizers to start and all of the plates are great as well (good seasonings and portion sizes).

Visited Greek Kitchen a number of times previously and had better experiences. This time we were placed in a small dining room and the waitress seemed to have forgotten we were there. When we finally placed our orders, the food was a bit disappointing. We ordered the vegetable moussaka which was good. We also ordered a Greek salad with chicken. The salad was Ok but the chicken was very dry For desert we shared greek yogurt with honey and walnuts which was really good along with baklava which was cakey and not very good. Maybe as we went on July 3rd it was just a bad night pre Fourth if July. We will give them another try for sure

What a neighborhood gem. The food was great. The service was perfect - attentive, but not overbearing. This is a very reasonably priced restaurant that does not skimp on food quality and service. There are not many eateries on our "return to NYC" list - this restaurant definitely is.

What a wonderful spot! The Greek Kitchen has a comfortable cozy yet not confining atmosphere, simple but tasteful design, and a friendly and attentive staff. I arrived before my two friends and was immediately seated. The waitress helped me choose a wine, letting me sample before committing. I ordered the Dolmades as an appetizer while waiting which was delivered immediately and tasted great. I ordered the mixed platter of gyro, befteki, and pork souvlaku with roasted potatoes, which included a side greek salad. My guests ordered the half roasted chicken and souvlaki. The food was amazing and the portions were generous. And the tzaziki is the freshest and best! Even though it is obviously a popular place, we were not rushed. I was able to enjoy a good visit with my young cousin and her girlfriend. I now would rank this up close to Niko Niko’s in Houston, which anyone familiar with it, knows this is a high recommendation! I will return next year when in NYC again.

If you disregard the terribly dissatisfied young lady at the entrance (who also walks around as if she is bored to tears), it is a great place. The food is really excellent (we spend months per year on the island of Naxos where the food is outstanding), especially the spanakopita.

This is obviously a place where a lot of regulars eat because of the number of people who the wait staff were calling by name. We were treated as if we were regulars too. The food was excellent and the service was attentive but not intrusive.

We will be back the next time we are in NYC and have recommended this place to some friends that are coming to NYC next week.

My friend raved about this restaurant. I found it lacking. I started with the Avgolemeno soup. I love Avogolmeno soup but this was the worst Avgolemono Soup I've ever had. It was a miss. Than I had the Bronzino which was okay but nothing that memorable. We had a desert which was phylo dough and cream in the middle (Can't remember it's name). Again it was okay. It was an okay (ho hum) dining experience. Also I asked the waiter questions about the menu and he couldn't answer but he did bring someone over to answer. I think a restaurant needs to educate their wait staff about the menu accross the board. Not impressed. My friend did love her Greek Salad and Vegetable Mousaka.
