Four of us for dinner and three ordered the roasted chicken which came highly recommended from the local hotel manager. One had baked jumbo shrimp. The meals did not disappoint. Service was attentive but not overly--very friendly and efficient.

Greek food was something new for me and I can say I'm a fan of this place. Indoor & outdoor seating w/ very good food and service. Stop in - you'll like it.

Very convenient location. Food was very tasty and portions were large enough to box some up for lunch the next day. Wait staff was very accommodating, and prices were good. Would definitely go back again.

We live in Lauderdale by the Sea part time. When we arrive Lauderdale early evening, we always walk to Athena and sit at the bar. Our first meal is anything Mediterranean and we aren't dissapointed.

We had a lovely dinner with some friends and a child. The service was quick and courteous, the appetizers came fast and we really like the taste of them and dinner was good. Not the best but good.

Went there twice, first night was amazing! Enridco bartender made you feel as if he owned fort lauderdale and you were his only guest! I returned the second night to not enjoy the same level of service, and I let them know, restaurant is Greek theme, I understand they have a new chef, calamari was great! They need to learn... More
