Paul and his staff have made this is a popular venue in Ridgewood for many many years. The addition of music on some nights makes this a wonderful place to relax and watch the world go by.

Not sure this place is one of a few, but the food and the service reminds me of one. There are so many other Greek restaurants that are so much better. If you are in Ridgewood and you feeling the urge to have greek, the place is just ok.

It's Greek to Me is one of our favorite places to dine while in Ridgewood. Everyone is always friendly. This time through I shook things up and tried the grilled calamari entree. The grilled flavor was very nice and it was served over sauteed spinach. Made for a nice light dinner. Looking forward to the next visit.

This restaurant is one of nine located in Northern New Jersey and started by two Greek immigrants in the late 1960s. Their son is now an active part of the family and apparently they hope to expand further. Food appears to be quite authentic based on my travels to Greece and having eaten at a number of Greek restaurants in... More

I haven't eaten here for 7 years and decided to give it a try late night when everything else was closed. Very good food. Salad was very good. Shrimp and lamb dishes were excellent and greek yogurt with honey also very good.

Authentic Greek food! Stopped for lunch because we saw a good review! It was well deserved! We had two huge salads w loads Gyro meat! Great service and the menu deserves a second look as the dinner selections look awesome!

I had heard good things about this place, but it definitely didn't live up to the talk. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and the staff was pretty nice, but the food was lacking. I've had MUCH better Greek food. The dishes just weren't very flavorful and didn't really do anything for either me or my partner. If you're looking... More

As a Ridgewood resident, this is always a good take out option. The gyros are good as is the Greek salad. Be sure to ask for extra pita with the tzatziki appetizer as there is usually not enough. I always enjoy the food and will continue to come back.
