We went with another couple for dinner. Given the prices I was expecting a truly extraordinary meal. The food was good, the service was fine (though our server was kind of snooty), and nothing about this place merited the high prices. We ordered appetizers, a couple of salads, and then two fish for the table. When the fish came it... More

I went there today and loved that grilled Salmon, plus the spinach appetizer was really good as well.

Lithos is a handsome restaurant with an affable, hands-on owner (it's a help if he knows you!!). The food can be anywhere from OK to excellent but on the occasions my party has paid over $200 for a whole fish that comes out dry and tasteless you have to ask yourself some serious questions. Last time there had an outstanding... More

I wanted to try this restaurant for a long time and was really looking forward to it. The inside was modern and inviting. It is not BYOB but had a nice variety on the wine list. The prices for the salads, appetizers and entrées were high. We started with mussels which were tasty but very small. The fried calamari was... More

Lithos is a very good Greek restaurant. The atmosphere/decoration in the restaurant are tasteful, like the food. Their Octopus is just amazing. I specifically liked the fresh fish, but our guests went for the more traditional Greek dishes like moussaka and were impressed as well. They also have a great selection of wines. We will go back there.

We went on a weekday night. I had the salmon entree and it was delicious - the sides were different but exceptional. The menu is extremely varied - true Mediterranean fare.

Simply the best Greek food in the Northern NJ area. From the grilled octopus appetizer to the lamb and fish entrees---all are fresh and prepared perfectly.

My experience at Lithos was awful, long wait for the waiter, followed by a bad "prefix" menu. I don't like fish so I did not order any, but my chicken kababs were awful. The sauce was not on the side (as I had requested) and the fries tasted like fast food instead of Greek (hey, did you get the fries... More

Lithos is a cute if kitschy (exterior anyway) little spot on the Eisenhower that does a decent job of classing up the strip which is more "pizza" than high end Greek food. Staff are pleasant enough and the menu will please almost everyone EXCEPT whomever is paying!!! Half the price is about right for the food; these are full-on Manhattan... More

I have been to Lithos a number of times. The food was always delicious. Their grilled octopus is fabulous. The fish selection is great. You can go and pick out the fish you would like, if you so desire. I usually ask the sommelier for a Greek wine to go with the food. Their suggestions have been great. The atmosphere... More
