Came in for dinner on a Thursday night and we got the last table available. There were six of us and one would think we were the only ones in the restaurant as our service was like we were family visiting the home of the restaurant owners. Lots of table time to explain and answer questions and just talk. This... More

Pros: wonderful food and service. Nicely decorated. Easy to carry on a conversation. Prices: a tad high for the area but not terrible. Cons: some of the booth cushions need to be repadded. Maybe play a greater selection of Greek tunes. Love it there. We had a great time!

I would recommend this restaurant. Family owned. Very friendly atmosphere. Very good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Portions are large and good quality. I have gone to the Athenian for years and will continue to eat there.

service was good. Waitress was attentive. We ordered the second costliest platter on the menu and it came out in 3 minutes. What? That screams under warming dish waiting for someone to order. They didn't even try to fake it. Seemed like we were rushed. Will NOT return. Food was at best OK.

I can't really put into words how good the food is here.... amazing? Unbelievable? Deliciousness? All of it was great. Very authentic too, according to my grandmother who had recently been to Greece. A little pricey, but 100% worth it. I just moved to the area and will definitely be returning as often as I can afford it!!!
