    Being new to downtown Lancaster we were very pleased. This restaurant was the best. We had a delicious dinner and drinks. The bartenders and the waiters did a fantastic job. We felt very much at home. The location was great from the Holiday Inn as we were able to walk to the restaurant. All around a great experience.

    waitress seemed pleasant, but got orders wrong. Food was decent. However, a big surprise later when I got credit card statement: Bill total including tax was $88.38. I added a $17 tip for a total of $105.38. Yet, they charged a total of $118.38 on my card. I called the restaurant today, and was not able to talk to a manager. No apologies so far.

    It was our anniversary and the reservation asked if it was a special occasion but then nada. Also, I got a fairly expensive ribeye and the inside was cooked perfect, but the outside was charred /blackened so it had a "burnt" taste to it. Be careful of the "specials" which are verbal & no pricing stated because my husband's steak was $80! So the bill was a little bit of a sticker shock for sure. The service was fantastic and the ambiance was ok - it would have been nice to have some candles on the table.

    Great food and service! We ate dinner upstairs at 5:30 on a Friday and when we arrived there were only a few tables occupied. By 7:00 the place was very busy. Davey was our waiter and he is the best! He's attentive, efficient and friendly. We will return again!

    Does very little to have a reservation for upstairs when you’re not able to be seated up there for over an hour. We went ahead and chose to eat downstairs what a mistake so incredibly loud you couldn’t even enjoy yourself or attempt to have a conversation.

    I stumbled on this place on a Monday night when everything was closed. The decor is dated but the atmosphere is cheerful. Don’t be put off by the cosmetics which could use a little updating. The food tastes great, everything is fresh and homemade and the staff is super friendly and chatty. Definitely a place you’d go back to…

    Wished it was warm enough to enjoy dinner on the roof/balcony. Next trip to Lancaster will definitely include another reservation. We ordered the calamari, lobster ravioli, moussaka, and shared a caramel dulce leches cake (?)...everything was delicious. We went to the Fulton Theater afterwards and spoke to some locals that raved about the restaurant. Our server was above par. Great date night experience.

    We booked Yorgos since we were staying in Lancaster overnight. The food was excellent, our waitress was the best. We weren’t expecting a bar atmosphere and it was noisy. We were offered the opportunity to go to the upstairs restaurant which they told us it would be quieter but since we preferred the menu downstairs we stayed. Overall, a pleasant evening.

    The restaurant upstairs was a nice cozy place if you prefer a quiet dining experience rather a bar experience downstairs. The server was attentive and the saxophone player added a nice jazz vibe. The menu offered a variety of options and was overall good for the value.

    The reservation booking for this restaurant was misleading. I wanted reservations at Yorgo's restaurant. However, as the person at restaurant informed me, all reservations are put in at Kefir (on 2nd floor), which is a completely different vibe / experience than Yorgos. wanted a more casual affair. You should change the reservation info to be more clear.

    This was our first visit to Kefi and we will return. I went with Greek dishes and my wife commented her steak was done to her liking. Another benchmark for me was the properly prepared vegetable medley retaining crispness, rather than those that suffer a slow death turning to mush on the steam table. Our friendly server was able to answer our questions about the menu, yet I had the impression he might have been new. We didn't know there were specials until overheard at another table by a different server. Another clue, admittedly minor- he bought bread dishes after the basket of warm rolls. Certainly not a deal breaker. Thanks for a pleasant evening.

    The restaurant is a bit confusing. The reservation was made based on photos from OPEN TABLE. In reality the nice photos are of the adjoining restaurant Kefis. Yogos is a bar with a couple of tables. We brought our son with us and where a bit surprised. The owner seems selective about who he allows upstairs in the nicer dining area. Perhaps an entirely different set of photos and different websites would make it less confusing. The food was delicious but the representation of the restaurant is not at all accurate .

    My wife and I decided to dine here for her birthday because she loves authentic Greek food and we heard good things. We had reservations for the lower level which has more of a bar/social feel, but the owner recommended we dine on the second floor that has a much more cozy restaurant vibe. we shared wine and ALOT of appetizers, everything was great. would recomend.
