I have had poor experiences at other It's Greek to Me restaurants. This one rose above all the others I have visited. The service is prompt and courteous. The offerings although basically the same as the rest of the chain were far better and tastier. You are not going to experience a meal at a top notch Greek restaurant but... More

I'm Greek so finding a place to eat some authentic Greek cooking can be pretty difficult but It's Greek to Me in Clifton does a very good job. Pretty much everything on their menu is good but I would recommend the lamb!!

The food was not bad but was not what I was expecting. The salas was average but the plate was too small for it so the food kept falling out 😔.The service is good and the place is nice and clean.

Good fresh food. Stopped by for lunch today with my girl friend. We each had the chicken soup which was excellent as usual. We shared a spinach salad and beets. Both were delicious and fresh. Gyros are also excellent. I highly recommend.

Don't miss this establishment, especially at lunchtime when there are specials that will satisfy your pallet and your wallet. Its good for dinner too, but the lunch menu is very reasonably priced.

I joined a friend, his wife and their three children for lunch at this restaurant. I wasn't very hungry so I just ordered the Melitzana with Tzakziki, which is the fried eggplant with cucumber yogurt dip. They'd had already ordered appetizers, one of which was the Taramosalata, which is a caviar dip with pita for dipping. I had never tasted... More

I'm a fan of greek food, and this is my go to place for lunch. All the dishes are solid, the service is excellent, nice setting, with both outside and indoor tables. Reasonable prices, with lunch specials.

Stopped in for dinner - since our last visit it has gone down hill- the servers are rushing you- the food was ok- not on point like usual and the place wasn't even very busy- maybe it was an off night- we used to really like it here

Order take out from here pretty often. Love the Greek fries and the chicken pita. My son loves the meatballs from here. The hummus is also very good.
