Our party of three went to dinner there on the early side. The staff made some excellent recommendations, both for food and wine. We had a great time and the price was very reasonable, we felt like we were treated as family. Will visit again...More

This was our second visit to Plaka a family run restaurant which serves authentic Greek food. We had all small plates- saganaki, grilled octopus, beets, lamb and a Greek bruschetta called Drakos? Portions were reasonable and the service was pleasant and attentive. Overall, a good...More

These people know what they're doing. In the course of one evening, I must have tried a quarter of the menu, including loukaniko sausage, spanakopita, octopus, Greek salad, roast lamb, gigantes beans, melitzanosalata, tzatziki, etc. All of it tasted fresh, every dish departed from the...More

We recently visited with a group of five. We were warmly greeted by the staff and service was both friendly and attentive. We decided to stick with the small plates and were happy with all of them. Particular shout-outs for the Octopodi (well-prepared and not...More

I've walked by for years and finally ate here Friday night. The food was wonderful and the service just the right mix of casual and friendly without intruding on our time. We shared a salad and a couple of small plates plus some wine. I...More

This place warmed my heart! I love coming across gems like this place. It is a family run establishment, with the mother supplying the family recipes and culinary know-how, and the very capable daughter who waits tables and manages the books (from what I gather)....More

Nice setting with very friendly service. Menu is authentic with lots of choices. We had the smelt and lamb with lemon potatoes. Both were tasty, but not fantastic. Prices are a bit high for what you get ($26 for a fairly small plate of lamb...More

This is our family go-to place. The food is simply amazing and more importantly, it's authentic! We have collectively had almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. From spot on skordalia to avgolemono to lamb to souvlaki, we always leave stuffed and...More
