Celebrated my parents 57th Anniversary. We had a wonderful night. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We were not rushed, And thoroughly enjoyed a special evening. We were treated to dessert and coffee, which was a nice touch.
Open space , little too dark to read off the menu :)
Between the appetizer and the main dishes it took about 40min .. which was too long of a wait. i wanted to cancel the order and leave. By the time we were done eating it took us about 2.5hours to have dinner. Overall, service was ok and the food was good.
Although very expensive ,food is outrageous! All night my wife said love it love it!
Great service as always. Waiters are always friendly but unobtrusively professional. They know the menu and products well and work hard to help you enjoy the evening. Thx to Varka for that.
Reliable quality food over and over again! Love all the fish and even the underrated Pork Chop was the best ever!
Pink Grapefruit Martini is perfection!
Last minute dinner date for my wife and I on a Saturday night. Varka never disappoints. Food, wine and ambiance are always on point. Highly recommended.
BEST Greek seafood specialist around. Wonderful fresh fish, well seasoned sides, great wine list and very attentive service all in a vibrant room bustling with diners of all ages. Very high end. Definitely a Bergen County destination for foodies.
Great as usual.
We go to Varka every few months. Aside from one ‘not so good’ experience, all of our visits have been excellent including this past Easter Sunday, 4/1/18! Everything was exceptional!! The service was superior; very professional yet happy to help with anything! We got help with wine and menu suggestions, perfect service including extra plates for sharing, etc. I have no kitchen now and wanted to have my family, but with the holiday, I wasn’t sure how things would go. Everyone was extremely happy!! Every time a friend says they want to try Varka, we say will go with them. We are so lucky to have this place and Ramsey.
We loved our dinner here. We would knock off marginal points for the Baklava dessert which was not the light filo pastry delight we prefer. There were 3 of us and we savored our fresh sardines and zucchini and eggplant crisps which we chose to share as appetizers. We went on to devour our individual portions of tiger shrimp, scampi, and filet mignon. The other dessert was an almond fig cake was as delicious as expected. The service was outstanding and the Sancerre we quaffed from the excellent wine list, very good. The acoustics good use a little help as the noise levels are high but it does lend to the lively ambiance!
Angry lobster is fantastic. Service is usually very good here. For the area it is expensive but the meal is worth it.
The mini lobster gyros are delicious! What a treat for lunch!
Varka never disappoints. Brought guest from Japan and he really enjoyed the fish selection. I had Sea Bass for the first time and it was delicious.
Have been going to Varka for many years, although not as frequent as I would like. They never disappoint. The service is good and friendly and the fish is fantastic.
Had a lovely time, it was my girls 60th Birthday, the food and service were outstanding, looking forward to my next dinner at Varka.
Wonderfully surprising delicious and clean food!
Always love this place, food ambiance and service is always phenomenal. Unfortunately this visit our waiter seemed to have been more concerned with socializing with the hostess instead of serving our table. We had to ask other servers numerous times to assist us.
Always pricey but ALWAYS delish - their grilled octopus salad - amazing!!!!
We had an outstanding dining experience with every meal being top class. We had a delightful waiter Nico too whom made our dining experience most enjoyable!
Good service! High noise level!
As always, Varka was perfect
The food is always fresh and tasty, the service wonderful
The restaurant is a bit noisy, but other than that, there is nothing bad to say about this restaurant
Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty very exceptional
Service, ambiance, cocktails and food were all incredible. Left nothing to be desired. This was my first time to Varka but definitely not my last.
Best restaurant in New Jersey, hands down. Wonderful warm atmosphere and super nice staff and ownership.never disappoints.
Everything is generally pretty good at Varka. Loved the Filet although the fries weren't crisp at all rather soggy this time around.
Fried cheese was yummy. Cheese cake dessert was good too!
Went here for my anniversary with my fiance. The staff was very friendly amd informative. The ambiance was very romantic and warm. I had the veal porterhouse special of the day and it was outstanding. I drove about an hour to get there and it was so worth it. Highly recommend it for anyone.
Thank you to Stavro! The Fagri and Greek Salad was top notch! Looking forward to returning.
Varka never disappoints! Had a terrific meal! Cold lobster , arugala salad, grilled whole fish filleted. It doen't get much better!!! My favorite restaurant in Bergen County!
We love Varka and are regular guests. The food, service, and ambience is off the charts
I've eaten more multiple times and each time has been a great experience. Food is always very fresh and cooked perfectly and the wine they have is always top notch. Service was excellent and although it was a busy night with people waiting, we were never pressured to leave even though we had ordered a couple of rounds of drinks after dinner. Will always consider them for special occasion meals or anytime my wife and I want to dress up and go out for a nice dinner!
Favorite local place, great fish, fresh veg. Service was professional as always, however, they were pushing drinks a bit more than usual today.
The manager was very accommodating and our waiter Nick was great!
Food was very good.. but over priced. The octopus was good, but wasn’t worth the $28 they charge. The Lobster Gyro was unbelievable and would go back just to eat that again as an entree. I ordered the halibut and was cooked perfectly. Wish they had more of a cocktail/drink selection. All I saw were martinis.. great place for a business spending account.. but would have to make it a special occasion to leave there paying $100/per person.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Varka. Everything was fresh and delicious. We started with the Greek salad and fried calamari for main course we had the bronzino and lamb chops. Would definitely recommend friends and family. Nice atmosphere great food good service. The cocktails weren't the best though. Will order a bottle of wine next time.
We celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday this weekend at Varka and had an amazing meal. Two orders of octopus for 6 people plus a beet salad, lobster taco and mushroom appetizer were perfect (although one can never get enough of their octopus!). Each couple then split an angry lobster and we split two desserts. Yes, I could have eaten more lobster but when you add all of their amazing bread into the equation, it was certainly enough. Great food, great atmosphere, and very attentive service. Varka continues to be my favorite Bergen County restaurant!
Tried Varka for drinks and apps with my husband and another’s couple. One round of drinks and a few apps (half of which were vegetarian) cost us $100 per couple before tip! I wish the prices were more reasonable. Great ambience and love the bar area. Our waiter was not very attentive. Had the beet salad, Greek tomato salad, tuna special appetizer, shrimp Santorini and grilled octopus - all were ok but nothing special. Not sure if we plan on coming back any time soon
