We ate lunch here on the recommendation of a clothing shop on Madison Avenue. We had the prix fixe menu starting with a large salad, spanakopita, and desert. We were brought out a tasting starter from the kitchen also, their own house-made yogurt which was delicious. The serving staff was so friendly, and at the end of the meal the chef / owner came out and we chatted. This is a great family run restaurant in a perfect location to Central Park, 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue shopping.

Finally! A real Greek restaurant in New York! We love this place, the food is incredible and the authenticity can't be beat. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu (I especially think that the Seafood dishes are out of this world) and the restaurant interior has an elegant, Mediterranean feel that lends itself to a lovely atmosphere.

Every time we visit NYC, we eat at Loi Estiatorio at least once, usually more, and it has been terrific. From the friendly greeting at the door to the gracious wait staff, you're made to feel welcome. And then there's Chef Maria....a force of nature in her apron! She clearly loves her restaurant, and why not...every dish we've ever ordered here has been excellent...from the tzadeki to the daily soup to the salmon, pasticcio, or the lavraki. If you still have room for dessert, you won't be disappointed. Our last visit was at lunch, but it is excellent for dinner as well. Definitely worth a visit!

The thing about traditional
Greek food that it's good the way it is ...no need to improvise ...
Famous Chef Maria does just that!
You get to feel like U r on one of Greek Islands eating great home coked Mediterranean fare.
Small & cozy place with a bar and very friendly attentive staff.
Delicious fresh fish and meat like Mama would prepare " with Love"
I came back for lunch and dinner few times ...
Enjoy :)

I come here often and is one of my favourite places in the city. The food is just excellent. I recommend the Branzino entrée, although all dishes are superb. Moreover, the service is brilliant and everyone is very friendly. A must for anyone in the city.
