Second time here for a pre-PPAC show dinner. Started with (I believe) Patsavouropita, savory cheese pie, which was tasty. For entrees, we had the scallops, also quite good, and the lamb shank--which was possibly the best I've ever had. Delicious, meat falling off the bone. The only disappointment was the pasta that accompanied both the scallops and the lamb shank, as it was underseasoned and just not interesting. Shared baclava for dessert along with a generous pour of ouzo.

Dip sampler was great spanakopita excellent.
Moussaka was enormous.. a bit bland.
Dandelion greens well done but too bitter for many people.

Our party of 4 had a nice meal on Saturday night, but we’ve been several other times and this was not as pleasant as the other meals. The hostess showed us to our table which was crammed in the back, right by the server station, bathrooms, and the swinging door to the kitchen with meals coming out constantly. I looked at the hostess and said, oh no...this will not do at all. I can’t believe there is a 4-top there. She politely said she understood and that she’d seat us somewhere else as soon as possible. So, back to the bar we went.
We waited another 15 minutes or so, and then were seated at a booth. Much better. Our waiter- I wish I could remember his name- he was very blah; didn’t seem happy to be at work at all. Fortunately, the food was yummy! We were celebrating 2 birthdays at our table, and I had put a note on Open Table and the server brought two plates of baklava with candles that was much appreciated. But, he just kind of put them down, no smile, no nothing. Maybe he was having a bad night- but I hope for a more upbeat server next time!

There are few Greek restaurants in or near Providence, RI so I did not know what to expect. I made an early reservation and learned if you don’t you will not get a table after 7pm. The bar is very nice as well. To my surprise the food was fabulous! HUGE portions, great selections from vegan to foodie to meat and potato fans. You will not be disappointed. The kitchen is slow but what I learned is to be patient because the meal is cooked to perfection. Go early for a leisurely dinner and take home for a delicious dinner at home. New favorite spot in a growing food scene in Providence!

Food was excellent. Service was disappointing for such a beautiful restaurant. Staff was not responsive in a timely manner nor did the host greet or say goodbye. We got better, friendly customer service from J.R. who was in charge of valet.

Kleos came up in my search when looking for somewhere new to eat and I tentatively asked my husband if he’d try Greek. We typically stay in our comfort zone. It I wanted to try something new. I couldn’t have been happier. I learned to pronounce some new words and I put trust in the chefs to make something delicious. Will, our waiter, was attentive, he suggested a great drink for me and kept our waters full. Wonderful, wonderful dinner. I’m so glad we tried something new.

Overall the experience was great! The food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant I felt was very warm and was a bit noisy. I had to really lean in to hear my friend speaking.
We had put in appetizers and had our drinks and about 10-15 minutes later our waitress came over to apologize because our appetizers for some reason were not communicated to the kitchen. We hadn’t even noticed the time that had gone by as we were content sipping our drinks and chatting. Appetizers came shortly after. Our water glasses were always full and our main dish was amazing. To make up for the late apps our waitress presented us with a huge piece of baklava on the house! Overall a wonderful visit! Will always recommend and look forward to going back.

We were there for dinner on January 30 and the restaurant was not busy- which was very nice. We are return customers because the food is outstanding and the service is excellent. The flavors are so distinct and everything is fresh. I love lamb but I am very picky about where I order it but I will always order the lamb shank here- absolutely delicious. For this dinner, my husband ordered several sides! The lemon potatoes were amazing and even better the next morning when reheated until crispy for breakfast! :) Enjoy!

Everything was delicious - seafood stew, fish, moussaka, green beans, the appetizers - the tower of crisp veggies, the plate of dips. The service was perfect - friendly but not intrusive. They even brought us some dessert wine and Greek cookies for dessert!

The old Taza site is revamped and very airy and attractive. We sat near a window on a rather mild, early winter evening, and occasionally, the wind came right through. Our waitperson was very good, very amiable, and fairly prompt with requests. Of the three of us, one ordered the Greek lasagna, and was amazed at the size of the dish (or pot). I snatched a taste and agreed. My companion and I both ordered the gyro with terrific fries - large and crisp, and a small but adequate Greek salad - no lettuce, but plenty of cukes and tomatoes that actually did not taste like cardboard at this out of season time. However, the gyro was so heavy on the cumin that I had to take up the waitress' suggestion of more tzatziki to calm that overwhelming ingredient. Almost everyone there was obviously pre-show at PPAC, and staff managed to get us all out on time. I will definitely return and try another dish.

Mixed grill was very dry. We each tried a piece n tried the next and all was very dry. We did not complain but brought it to our server’s attention.
We ended with lattes and cappachino with a slice of baklava. We would like to go back, but will not accept dry lamb again.

Mixed review
Made reservation thru open table and ensured chef knew about husbands severe dairy allergy. Server never got message - they said no open table comment was visible yet I had comment visible when I pulled open table up on my phone. Very limited menu for husband - even potatoes roasted with lemon and olive oil reportedly were pre prepared and had butter. He had wanted pasta with octopus but tomato sauce had dairy too. He ended up with special - lamb chop and raved about it, but very expensive at $38 ( should have asked re price initially).... and the greens ended up going back as some feta in them. We let them know how disappointed we were and the owner gave us free app and salad and sorbet which was very nice and not expected/necessary. My vegan eggplant meal was delicious. Lots of food - both of us brought half a meal gone.
So bottom line - nice ambiance, excellent food but not great or careful with allergies even after they were told in person. Owners tried hard to compensate. My husband said he’d return to try again.

Great from start to finish! We enjoyed the friendly bar staff until we were seated. From there, the rest of the staff was awesome too. We jumped around and shared both appetizers and entrees. While everything was great, the Grilled Braised Octopus and Lamb Shank were my favorites! Too full for dessert but will be back again and save some room for the Baklava.

The Dipping sampler was delicious, the Moussaka authentic, the Lamb shank was fall off the bone tender, and the Baklava was my favorite ever! The 2 cocktails we had were original and well presented. Our server was very sweet and timely. The ambiance was maybe a tad dark, but mostly we loved it. Will definitely return!

We were seated right on time. It was very busy and loud, which I actually love. The waiter was amazing and asked if we were going to a show right off. He was attentive but not in our face. The maze platter was delicious although I prefer more olives and hummus instead of sausage, which I don’t eat. My sister got the chicken which was so good! The baklava was cinnamon and honey delicious! We will go again!

The website and the sign out front stated there was complimentary valet parking. Not true tonight. We had to find a parking lot and paid for parking.

We had the special of Colorado lamb chops with dandelion greens and lemon potatoes. There was a lot of dandelion greens to fill the plate but not a lot of lamb. The dish itself was not memorable in a positive way....not very flavorful. It was not bad tasting.....it just was not that good....and was quite pricey.
With all the good restaurants to choose from this will probably not be one of our choices again. Just not worth it. We have been before but not again.

our server must have been having a bad day. he was very pushy and just not polite. far too opinionated telling me I should order a Rose instead of Red Wine and just not saying thank you. had to wait 10 minutes to track him down to get a check after finishing our meal so we could make it to a play nearby. I wouldn't rush back.

Food was amazing. We were seated by the kitchen and the light from opening and closing the door was very harsh. I might remove this table as it is in a strange spot but the food was delicious and I think if we were seated somewhere else the ambience would have been terrific too.
