we had great fish , that was fresh and tasty . Many appetizers. Really enjoyed the chips with the best tatziki sauce we ever had. Upscale dining experience that caters to wealthy patrons. We loved it

What a fabulous dinner we enjoyed at Lefkes. We ate in the beautiful outside garden, surrounded by gorgeous trees and plants. Our waiter even picked a ripe lime for us from a plant near our table. The meal was magnificent, the halibut prepared to perfection. I cannot pronounce (nor spell) the name of our decadent dessert, but I would recommend any of the exquisite selections. The service was impeccable. I highly recommend Lefkes for its excellent food, staff and atmosphere. It truly was a memorable experience.

First time here. Food was excellent. We shared the tuna tartare and Greek salad appetizers. For the main course 3 of 4 of us had the fish special (branzino) and all loved, and the other main dish ordered was the halibut with cauliflower purée lentils - fantastic!
We dined outside and would highly recommend this. All of us agreed we’d definitely come back to Lefkes.

Service is terrible - sat for over two hours and dinner finally arrived with plates missing and no explanations for excessive delay. Everyone working their seemed overwhelmed and the cost of the meal was exorbitant for such abominable service and underwhelming entrees. Not worth the money or your time.

The grilled octopus was the best I have ever had. We were early so it was relatively quiet. However, there is a lot of hard space so I imagine it is quite loud when full. There were two bottles of wine that we requested that they didn't have. They waitress made a nice suggestion, however for another bottle. It was quite good overall.

Lefkes is a wonderful restaurant. We were seated quickly and offered drinks straight away. The service was attentive and efficent. Our food was perfectly seasoned and prepared. We enjoyed a variety of appetizer dips with warm pita, fried calamari and grilled whole fish that was large enough for 2! The burnt brussel sprout sides were amazing. Dessert was the perfect ending enjoyed with a port wine suggested by the manager. We would definitely go back!

Love this place !!!. Great service, attentive staff, food is excellent and always beautifully presented. Seafood cooked to perfection and is fresh; never overdone ! The restaurant has variety of food offerings in the menu including vegetarian selection. I went to this place at different times checking for consistency and also to try out different food in the menu. So far, never has it happened that I left this place disappointed.

Wasn't that crowded and still service was mediocre. Forgot the side dish we ordered. When eventually reminded, we were told "two minutes." Ten minutes later the server came back and said "soon" at which point we said to cancel that order since we were already done with the entrees. Octopus appetizer was excellent, but seared tuna entree was fair with soggy vegetables. Between the service and prices, there are better options in the area. Physically a nice place though.

Lefkes is a wonderful experience. From the way that they greet you when you enter throughout the entire dinner. The food is fresh, the extensive wine list and cocktails and the vibe made the dinner with friends memorable. The appetizer of octopus was so tender and the salads were as fresh as if you were in the Mediterranean. My friends gushed over the Tiger prawns and the Dover sole. We all agreed not to eat the desserts, but each of us succumbed and it was so worth it! Crunchy on the outside, sweet and delicious on the inside, and all Greek originals. This was a top tier experience.

Had a wonderful girls lunch today. The watermelon salad was very refreshing and we thoroughly enjoyed our chicken kebabs. As we ate we were greeted by their lovely manager Dina who was very helpful in explaining private events at this location! The ambience was fantastic and i am considering hosting a party here in the future. Rate 10/10 great!

We went on a Sunday night in the summer and it was relatively empty outside seating was beautiful and quiet. Staff was very polite however it took a very long time for us to get each stage of our meal. We questioned the waitstaff but they didn't mention any issues in the kitchen or missing staff so that was disappointing as it would have been understandable had there been issues. I wouldn't return based on the food being average and the service being good but the time for our food come out was exceptionally long

It was crowded so the server had no excuse. In a restaurant at this level, I should not have to request waiter 3 times. The last time was to process the check with my card - it took 20 min from the time he gave us the check until he came back. And, $59 for Dover Sole, while I'm sitting in Englewood Cliffs, is excessive. They have mid town Manhattan prices or higher, without delivering the same value.

Beautiful restaurant. the beet salad was fair, no real flavor nothing to make me want to finish it. Out fish was overcooked. When the server asked if everything was ok he was not responsive to the comment. For the price of the entree, I expected a well cooked piece of fish. I would return for cocktails, but not a meal.

What an incredible meal we had at Lefkes! We are still talking about the fabulous red snapper for two, the magical roasted potatoes and a dessert that I cannot pronounce (or spell) but was worth its weight in honey and cream!
Looking forward to returning soon! A Bergen County treasure.

We were seated outdoors at our request because the noise level inside was too high. We were approached by a waiter when we were seated and ordered tea. It never arrived until we ordered it again. We then ordered two appetizers and one main dish. One of the appetizers was what we ordered, the other was not. We had to wait quiet a while for the correct dish to arrive. After finishing the appetizers we waited quiet a long while for the main. When I inquired, the waiter told me I had not ordered a main dish. At that point I asked for the check. The waiter them became belligerent insisting I had not ordered a main dish. The overall experience was awful and I would not return to this restaurant.

Food was very good. The ambiance was a great as we ate outdoors on a beautiful Friday afternoon. The staff was very nice but lacked attentiveness - slow to take our orders and then we had to ask for the check three times. Our server was not seen for 15 minutes.

The restaurant is very pretty. We started with the Greek salad, minus the feta & onions. The tomatoes were fabulous. Then we had the salmon appetizer, which was unusual & quite tasty. We both had lamb chops, ordered medium, (pink) and I thought they were over cooked. We shared a wonderful dessert, custard in phyllo dough. I think the restaurant is over priced, and perhaps that’s the reason there were barely any other customers. We had a very early reservation at 5:15, and were in the restaurant until nearly 8 pm, and there were only 3 or 4 other tables of guests.

Food was disappointing - whole fish was very small, dry and not worth $44! No Dover Sole as on the menu. Best part of the meal was the chips! No moderate wine available - only high priced bottle. Service was condescending and slow.

My husband and I took my aunt out for Mother's Day. The food was fantastic. I had a wonderfully grilled sea bass filet and my companions ordered lamb chops. Our server was great. They were quite busy and it took a little while to get our entrees, but everything was delicious.
