Greek Islands NYC
The food was delicious as usual. The staff is very accommodating.
Always a favorite!!!
Have eaten many times at Greek islands
Seems it was an off night. Usually fabulous
They ran out of dorado fish
Nice local eatery for well seasoned Greek appetizers salads and entrees.
We had a family birthday party at Greek Isles and as usual it was excellent. We don’t eat there that frequently, but when we do, we are treated as family
We especially enjoy their whole fish selection, their lamb kebobs and their mussels
The food was great. A lot of great seafood and traditional Greek options. The service was incredible and very friendly. They gave great suggestions and felt like they truly wanted you to have a great dinner.
Christmas Eve dinner. Food is so fresh and the wait staff is awesome! Our new favorite resturant.
Very fun experience, learned a lot about Greek trees from the waiters.
Excellent local Greek restaurant. Fresh fish, great flavors.
Greek Islands is a classical Greek Taverna. The food is very enjoyable & the whole fish is brilliantly prepared. Panayiotis & George were great. It's a terrific place & cozy. A very tasteful place & decor is so relaxing. A work of art!
Delicious authentic Greek food. Service was very good. The only downside is the parking. But I plan to return for sure.
Everything was fresh and hot and delicious. Good range of choices and many daily specials.
Extremely disappointed. Poor service. Overcooked but cold food. Will not return.
Food and service were great. A loud group spoiled our evening and made conversation difficult.
A very pleasant experience. Authentic Greek cuisine with great flavour. A really nice place .
We had an exceptional time. It’s a quaint small place with a beautiful mural of a Greek street on the wall. We ordered 5 different entrees and a couple of appetizers and each meal was delicious- from the Bronzino to the salmon to the stuffed chicken! Service was attentive and offered opinions when asked about the dishes. The desserts were also good and topped off by a specialty they make in house -pasteli- which was awesome!
Amazing fresh fish and meat options. So so good!
Food is good, ambience is not anything to write home about, but the prices are definitely $$$ pricey for the location and what you get for your money
Great food and service
As always, we were very happy with the service, the friendly manner,
the excellent food.
Excellent overall. My friend and I thought the food was delicious. The service is very warm and friendly but a little slow... probably because they were very busy. I highly recommend this restaurant, you will enjoy it.
The food was fresh and delicious with a variety of specials. The server was very attentive. We have visited several times through the years and it has always been consistently good. We do not live in the area but make a point to visit when we can.
The owner and staff can’t be more welcoming. Probably best Branzino I’ve ever had.
It’s our favorite restaurant
Small, pretty restaurant with great food and personal service. We really enjoyed ourselves.
We've been coming here for many many years. We know everyone by name (the owner George, the servers), they know what our favorite items on the menu are, what wine we prefer, etc. It is the most reliable restaurant around and we are happy to be there every time we get a chance to come. Food is consistent in its preparation, flavors, and presentation. There's nothing pretentious, superficial, or cute about it: it's always tasty, exactly what we expect, and at times - beyond of what we expect. This is a true neighborhood restaurant every neighborhood should have at least one of, and we can always rely on this place to keep us happy, well-fed, and entertained. We had food in Greece in a number of places, as well as in a good number of Greek restaurants stateside. Greek Islands, to us, is just as good or better than those we visited around the world.
The meal was terrific- from the complimentary chickpea dip with seasoned pita to the whole grilled dorado. One of the best baklava we’ve had. And when I had a question about the wine, our gracious server offered to provide a taste before we decided. Much appreciated. The only criticism is that the grilled shrimp dish was skimpy - four large shrimp - and was pricey for the size. This really is a neighborhood gem!
Right in the midst of the up and coming Little Neck foodie central. Easy parking off on the main road, free after 6/7pm (check signs!). The servers are very attentive and know all the fresh and specials of the day! Authentic and feel good menu!!! Try the spreads and make sure to get at least three!!!
The food was great other than the mussels that came with the Corfu salad which weren't fresh. Service was good and a nice atmosphere.
Souvlaki was little strips of over salted and over cooked
chicken with burnt tasting black char. My mother sent hers back. I should have. Standard Greek salad.
The noise level was deafening. Will never return to this restaurant.
The service is always impeccable. The food is always delicious!
The decor of this place is great. You really feel like you’re in Greece. Sadly the decor was the best part of the meal. I ordered chicken souvlaki with rice. It only came with 4 small pieces of chicken that were way over cooked. One of my favorite things is charred onions and they were barely cooked. To boot it was $18.99. You can get way better value at other restaurants, many of which come with soup or salad which Greek Islands didn’t. Lastly the service was super slow. It took over an hour to get our food which wasn’t worth the wait. They serve pita topped with oregano which would have been good except for that as soon as you pick it up all the oregano falls off. Save your money and go elsewhere.
I have been here several times, and never been disappointed. I am a big fan of their grilled octopus and their greek salad. Their fish dishes are fresh, well seasoned and cooked perfectly! I go back again and again and again...
Always a wonderful dinner. Good, fresh food and excellent friendly service. A true neighborhood gem.
solid food...prices at Manhattan level...noise level can preclude conversation
As usual, this was an excellent choice for dining.
Excellent food and service. Everything is fresh and authentic. Will definitely be going back in the near future.
Very disappointed. Service was not as good as it usually is
Food is always fresh and very tasty and friendly, efficient service make this a perfect neighborhood eatery.
Amazing fresh grilled fish... do not order off the menu, wait to hear the specials!
