We got in very quick for how busy it was and the staff was very friendly. Food was awesome and came out in a timely manner. Loved the authentic atmosphere and dining options. Great place to eat in downtown Detroit!

Greektown is local area near downtown Detroit that is lined with Greek retarnts,bakeries and anchored by the Greektown Casion. The queen of the block is the Pegasus Teverna, serving a very large array of Greek dishes prepared in the traditional way. If you are new to Greek food, try one of the many combo plates. And don't forget the Sanganaki... More

Went here with some business colleagues and didn't leave disappointed. The service was fantastic. One of my co-workers is what people may call a man of too many questions customer and the server handled herself very professionally and he was very happy with the selection. For me, it's about the beginning and end at Greek restaurants. As long as the... More

I've never understood the popularity of Pegasus. Yes the location is outstanding in the middle of Greektown. The food is fine but it's not great. I think that there are many places in Greektown that have as good if not better food. In fact there is a two-story place across the street that has better Greek food. I still go... More

My daughter and I stopped in for some Saganaki while my wife hit the slot machines. We had a great time, we were there for about an hour. It was relatively empty but still fun.

The setting is a little rustic giving it an air of authenticity. The menu features many Greek favourites. Our waiter was truly exceptional in handling our large, rowdy group. He made all the difference to our experience. The servings are very large and tasty. Meat is clearly their specialty as I did not think much of the vegetables. Still, all... More

I have not been to Detroit in over 10 years but always remember the great Greek food. I decided to go to Pegasus for dinner. I arrived and was greeted politely and was seated. I decided to order the Saganaki cheese as an appetizer it was served flaming table side my only complaint was that it was only served with... More

We had the best evening at Pegasus! There was parking nearby at 707 Lafayette for only $10. Arriving at 6 p.m. seemed to help because we arrived before the rush. A very large basket of bread was served before we even ordered. The "Opa" goat cheese was incredibly delicious and after we devoured it we realized why so many tables... More
