The food was really good, especially for the price. I had the branzino, which came with salad, orzo and pita, and the meal itself was only around $30. Surprisingly good for the cost.

Good food - met expectations. No issues with server attitude or hospitality. The biggest detractor that would keep me from recommending was how long it took to get everything from the kitchen. It was so slow, frustratingly so. If I had to guess what caused the slowness, I’d guess that the kitchen isn’t prepared to handle the demand, even though the restaurant was only maybe 80% full.

I have been going to The Greek Kitchen for years. The food is always fresh and delicious. I have also used them for catering. Everything was delivered on time, hot and ready to serve. They set up trays and brought everything to make our party a huge success. The staff takes a special interest in making sure we are happy and satisfied. I recommend the GK for its authentic cuisine, large menu and great value.

Loved the casual atmosphere. Authentic Greek food, great full bar all in a great Hells Kitchen location. Dined with out of town friends and all of us loved our meals. From the delicious appetizers i.e., taramasolata, hummus, octopus and spanakopita to the perfectly prepared Shiskabob, moussakka, Branzino and lamb shank, all was perfect.

Been there many times with excellent service. We were a group of 8 & 3 came late. Gave waiter entire order together even for the late 3. When served, 1 meal never arrived. Waiter forgot to order it. Slow to admit, no apologies or offer to compensate. Very very busy. all food good as usual but Moussaka thick & not very good. Disappointed.

Despite having a reservation and our entire party being on time, it took over an hour to be seated. We were not given any sort of formal apology and there was no rush to get our food served as well. Very good food but customer service was lacking.

Always a good meal at The Greek Kitchen! Very good service even during peak times.
Regular menu has enough variety for everyone.
Specials are usually outstanding.
Wine and beer selection does the trick with some Greek offerings too.

We ordered Greek salad with salmon and the portion was big. Great value for great quality and taste. It was comforting food in a comfortable setting.
Before we left we were provided a complimentary flan for dessert.

Will definitely recommend and will come back!

Veg mousaka not recommended.
All other meals were fine.

Greek salad had too much dark, leafy romaine. Other ingredients sparse.

We've been to this restaurant many times.
We will be back.

Greek kitchen has always been a favorite restaurant for lunch either seated or to go. The chicken kebab sandwich has always been one of my favorites.

I went this week once for lunch and then for dinner with my husband, sister and nieces to celebrate my birthday. The food is always authentic Greek and every dish we ordered was excellent.

What it lacks in ambience, it makes up for 100 times in food quality. My favorite Greek restaurant in NYC.

We try to get to The Greek Kitchen whenever we go into NYC. On this occasion we had a strange occurrence for this restaurant. We were ignored after being seated for at least 15 minutes. At that point I asked for a table change to alter who would be servicing our needs. Instead the manager took over and served us delightfully for the remainder of our meal He could not have been nicer and the food was excellent as it always has been. The usual waitress who we have seen for years was not there and when I inquired was told that she was on vacation. I would not hesitate to go back and I have only nice things to say about an excellent Greek restaurant that I hope doesn't get too popular, so we can always get in when we want.
