Amazing service. The kind of food you would get in a nice restaurant in Greece. Authentic, not traditional American Greek food. The real deal.

Really loved the food here. The tasting menu was outstanding. Personally, I think I went in a bit too hungry so I wasn't completely full after our 3 course meal. However, I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a great modern twist on some Greek classics.

Can I buy the pita for entertaining at home? It is out-of-this-world delicious! All of our sharable small plates and larger selections were amazing. I brought guests visiting from out of town and they were quite impressed by our meal, service, and ambiance.

Went with friends who are vegetarian. Frequently it is hard to find a varied and interesting selection of veggie dishes, but Ouzeri offered a great lineup.

Stand outs were the tzatiki sauce and freshly made pitas, fennel fritters and butter beans with feta.

Added bonus: the bartender was concocting interesting drinks including two standouts made with shrubs. Definitely try the ouzo and shrub cocktail.

This place doesn’t get the attention, or wait list, that its next door neighbor Spinasse gets, but is well worth your time and $$.

We are repeat customers because of the overall experience. Every detail was accounted for. Big compliments to the server who did a wonderful job! We never waited for more than 5 minutes to be attended to, right from when we walked in to when the bill was given us when we were ready. Keep up the wonderful customer experience... and of course, the tasteful food!

Amazing food. Found this place during Restaurant Week and knew we had to come back for more!
We chose the tasting menu this time and it didn't disappoint. Food was excellent. The waitress was amazing and knew her stuff about wine (so did our last waiter).

Highly recommend.

Omega Ouzeri was always one of the best Mediterranean/Greek restaurants in Seattle. Now with Chef Tana Mielke in the kitchen it has become one of the very best dining experiences nationally. Modern Greek cuisine with a sophisticated Wine list and wine savvy servers. Not to be missed. Authentic at its very best.

We went on Christmas Eve, which may be an unusual night for this restaurant, but we were not happy with our experience. The food was mostly good and our server was nice, but everything else was not up to our expectations. The prices were very high for what we received and the dishes were not delicious. The timing of our courses was way off—we had to wait 40 minutes between our appetizers and our main course, even when we made it clear that we needed to leave for a show. I was disappointed because I had heard great things about this restaurant, but I don't think we'll go back.

Great location, place, service and food. Paid parking is available in the building, if you can't find street parking. We ordered multiple dishes (appetizer, salad and entrée) and share it family style, a couple of the entrée (lamb and octopus) was warm vs. hot.

We tried the 3 course menu for Restaurant Week. Excited to see Moussaka on the menu - have trouble finding that at any local Greek restaurants. Food was good. They had a large selection of Greek wines and we had a great wine at a very reasonable price. Server was very friendly but a little spacey. She brought the wrong appetizers and then forgot to bring the wine we'd ordered until we gave her a gentle reminder. But minor inconveniences! We enjoyed the meal.

Came here for Restaurant Week and left thoroughly disappointed. We had reservations upon walking in to find a nearly empty restaurant. We should have turned away.

Being from Tarpon Springs (city with the highest percentage of Greek Americans in the US), I've had my fair share of really good Greek food. I can appreciate updating a dish which is what they seemed to do, but Moussaka just should not be messed with. The bechamel was barely there. The beef was dry and not overly seasoned. The potatoes were cut too thick and had a strange flavor. Now, the moussaka is not typically on the menu and I can understand why. We also got the roasted lamb which was definitely the star of the meal. The lamb was tender and had great flavor. But it was served in a giant bowl on a bed of potatoes and that's all.

We got the baklava and almond cake for dessert. The almond cake was nice and moist. But the baklava... The baklava was an affront to Zeus himself. It was basically a cliff bar sandwiched between a couple layers of filo. My husband and I just had to laugh at this point.

Lastly, how could a Greek Restaurant not serve saganaki?!

We gathered as a family of five to celebrate one daughter’s visit home from NYC. The staff accommodated all of our demands (from vegetarian to determined carnivore) and made us feel most welcome. Our dinner was delicious. Particularly noteworthy was the lamb and risotto but from mezas to desserts, it was a wonderful taste and f Greece in our own neighborhood.

The Greek music was lovely and at just the right volume. The service very good, the decor and lighting very attractive. Omega Ouzeri was good. We had the tzatiki, grilled octopus, baked fish, horta, meatballs. None were bad. The serving sizes of the tzatziki for the price was too small and $5 for 6 pieces of bread too pricey. The wine selection is excellent and we had a delicious seasonal Metaxa brandy cocktail, very good. Would have liked to have seen more traditional Greek main courses - pasticio, moussaka, stuffed tomatoes. We will be back nonetheless esp Sunday-Thursday tasking menu. It is a great place to host an event, big glass doors open and out making it very welcoming. I am Greek so my expectations of Greek food at a restaurant are high. They are getting there.

Six of us ate at Omega this past week. The food was excellent and the server, Sara, was very helpful. We told her our budget and let her run with it. Sara was timely with the food and served a variety that was creative yet complimentary. I highly recommend Omega and there wasn’t anything on the menu that I wouldn’t recommend ordering.

Quite a nice surprise really. Greek Style food in a pleasing setting. Everything we tried was lovely, especially the grilled octopus, which was tender and very tasty. I would definitely recommend going if you like Mediterranean food, though it is a little less straight traditional Greek and more updated for modern cuisine.

The only thing I didn't care for is that the wine list is exclusively Greek, and I'm sorry but the Greeks do not make particularly notable wines in my experience.
