This restaurant cooks from scratch, has nice decor, nice food, and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. There is also free parking right beside the restaurant. More of a Greek meat restaurant than seafood but still very good. Prices are reasonable, particularly the house wines and lunch menu. If you are local or staying in the downtown area it... More

The food was delishous and the server was very good. She suggested a Greek wine that I enjoyed very much.

I have been here several times, and each time it is just terrific. Good food, friendly service, reasonable prices and a most convivial atmosphere. It is hard to know how to improve. Last night the wine selection was poor, as apparently a group (from Vermont) had drunk most of their retsina; well, one could ask why they had not replenished... More

I had heard of Mystiko but had never been. Husband and I went on Friday night before heading to the NAC. We did not have a reservation, but were seated immediately, even though resto was busy. I had the vegetable moussaka, which was excellent - not heavy, but will a little crisp taste of the béchamel. Greek salad was included... More

This place was quite good! The food was light, fresh and delicious. Price point is average for what you get. Portion size is generous. Greek salad is fantastic and the chicken was cooked well! Will return in the near future. Note: floors are slippery when wet, be careful when in heels!

Four of us dined at this establishment in December 2016. Although the restaurant was very busy the service was excellent. We ordered appetizers, main course and dessert. Our food was served hot and at a nice pace, in other words we were not rushed through our meal which seems to be the norm these days. We enjoyed our evening, the... More

Eight of us went for our Work Christmas dinner party at Mystiko Greek Kitchen & Wine Bar, last Friday. This was our first-time experience at this restaurant. Although I know of this restaurant I never had the opportunity to dine there. When I went in, I was pleasantly received by our waitress for the evening and directed to our table... More

I've been coming here for for years and have always found the food to be very good. A good variety and always cooked to the same high standard. Our hostess and server Tanya always provides the epitome of service - always smiling, helpful and extremely efficient. A woman with a great personality. Other servers we've had have also provided service... More

Food is delicious, tzaziki not too tart, and the meat is so soft and tender. Everything tastes so fresh. Leftovers the next day are even better...!
