We made reservations, but the man at the front door pretended to look at a list before putting us at a table under harsh lighting right next to the waiter's station under the balcony. There were plenty of other tables in nicer sections - get a divider so we don't have to watch the uneaten food get scraped into bins... More

We had a delicious early dinner on Sunday. We enjoyed the stuffed grape leaves and three dips for appetizers. For dinners we had pork, lamb and chicken kebobs along with the Greek lasagna. The only downside of the meal was that waitstaff never checked on us or asked if the food was okay. They almost seemed a little annoyed by... More

We had wanted a lighter dinner after a big brunch and heard this was a place to check out. We had some very good food, drama with it being lit on fire at the table, attentive waiter and manager and friendly people at other tables around us. The noise level was moderate and it was easy to chat at our... More

First of all this restaurant needs some love. The portions are huge so be mindful. My friend and I had to force a "small" Greek salad. I tasted a cube lamb gyro wrap and it was good. I ordered a gyro platter and I was not expecting the mountain of food in front of me. The pita bread was okay... More

First time here for lunch with a local. Food was delicious, the spinach pie was great. Finished with a balaclava was wonderful. Will definitely come again. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

What a great find at the last minute! I had the octopus salad and a whole grilled flounder. Both were fresh, perfectly cooked. The octopus was tender. The flounder was moist yet with a nice char.

No flash, dishes aren't super creative just simple good food. We had the swordfish which was fresh, grilled nice, light seasoning and delicious. Spinach Pie was spot on too. A buddy I went to school with family was straight Greece and his dad made it from scratch. He must have been from the same Greek town because it could have... More

We went to Uncle Nick's by Madison Square Garden, 8th av. It was a really tasty Greek restaurant. Lovely starter which was four freshly made dips and freshly cooked pita. Then I had chicken kebab and rice and my wife had lamb kebab and rice. Great portion sizes and really fresh and tasty food. Waiting staff were good. My wife... More
