First, let me start off by saying bring your wallet. If you have trouble parting with your $ stay away but you will miss the best meal you have ever had. This is about my 10th time to Varka. Yes, it's expensive but get over it! I order the grilled octopus appy every time I go because it is so... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Bergen County and it is absolutely deserving of such acclaim. The atmosphere is very nice and there is always a good crowd. The food is excellent and the service is good as well. For appetizers, I recommend the grilled octopus - the best I've ever tried, and the zucchini & eggplant chips... More

We ventured to this restaurant for a second time in the past 18 months as it is a midway point between us and our Westchester friends. Both times, the place has a good vibe, trendy space and consistently good food. I'm a big fan of Arctic Char and it is not often found on many menus so I did not... More

Great meal. Excellent appetizers (Greek spreads, stuffed calamari, fried cheese). Fish was outstanding. New York City pricing, but you get what you pay for.

Consistently good food and generally very good wait service. Interesting selection of foods and wines. The spreads are especially tasty. The fresh fish is always a good choice. Last night I had the angry lobster, which didn't make me angry at all!

Excellent quality of fish, great if you're on a diet. Very fresh but expensive... the room is very loud. Great service

We came here for a second time with extended family for a birthday celebration. Everything is well-prepared and tasty. This is NOT the place to get traditional Greek food. For example, there is Mousakka included with the scallop dish... It's delicious but bears no resemblance to the mousakka yia yia used to make. As long as you do not go... More

Fish is king. One picks fish and weight at display area as is the case in many Greek restaurants. Service is friendly and efficient.. Surroundings are pleasant- especially in the warm months when an out door area is open. Departure pasties offered gratis are excellent. It is not BBYO
