Food and service was outstanding. Best fish selection in Northern New Jersey. Looking forward to dining there again.
My wife and I saw this restaurant on the Real Housewives episode! We always try to find "soup to nuts" to try. The one hour drive was definitely worth the trip! Drinks were excellent (cosmo & dirty martini), Blue Point oysters and octopus was outstanding!. We shared the bronzino special which was amazing! We only have one unbelievable fish place in Central Jersey (Blue Water - EB) and always compare. Even the broccoli rabe was great. The chef made a souffle that was to die for as well as incredible cappuccinos!! We will definitely be back here!!!
Myself and a friend had the most enjoyable dinner the ambiance and service were excellent. The service and staff were prompt and warm. The food was excellent and desserts were delicious! Thanks lefkes!!! Will come again soon!!!
Place did not take our reservation through OpenTable and said they were booked. Left us high and dry on New Year’s Eve.
One of my favorite places,but New Years Eve was poor.Firstly,in lieu of their menu,they had a $95 PER PERSON charge!
For that price,diners could choose one of two soups.For the appetizer section,two diners could choose ONE.Not one each,but One!
Appetizer choices and entree choices hardly reflected their regular menu,and offered 5 in each category,all of which were decent but not their usual excellence..edible but not memorable.
The usual great service was lacking,disorganized and chaotic.
Alternatively,there was recorded Greek music and a live band,both of which were so loud that table conversation was impossible.
Legless is one of our regular go to restaurants but do not ever consider them on New Years Eve,or anytime they have a special menu.
A major disappointment on New Years Eve....live and learn!
New Years eve is a tough time to review a restaurant. Our first visit to was shortly after opening and a service & food disaster. Again, on NYE the wait staff was a bit disjointed in coverage, but service was attentive. Food was served timely, and very well prepared. Pricy, but only moderately more expensive than competitive types in the area. We will be back soon.
Lefkes is our new go-to restaurant. We love it there! The food is amazing. We had fresh fish prepared in front of us. It was delicious. The service was fantastic. We can't wait to go back!
Made a reservation and got confirmation as well.
When we got there kitchen wasn’t even open.
They didn’t even bother to call me to advise.
Food above average but service below par and prices are quite high.
I've been here a few times. Food is decent and they have a reasonable prixe fixe lunch menu but service is hit or miss. When they are busy, you could wait up to an hour for your order. They seem to be understaffed in both kitchen and dining.
This was our first dining experience at Lefke’s, but it certainly will not be our last. The food, service and ambiance were all top-notch. My husband and I were joined by two nineteen year-old grandchildren, who were also very happy with the experience. A winner.
A top class restaurant, we thoroughly enjoyed our family dinner here. We recommend the meatball appetizer and the tuna tartare. We all ordered fish main entrees (salmon, halibut, fresh dorade) and each entree was delicious. We had no regrets with any item that was ordered. We look forward to returning in the future.
Lefkes has become somewhat of a go-to venue for us when we want to EAT! Their portions and selection of food is unparalelled. Their service is wonderful and the ambiance is very european. We enjoy visiting often and look forward to our next visit.
Food was delicious. Service was impeccable. Drink menu was interesting - enjoyed a flavored martini. Would definitely visit again.
The food is incredible. We’ve been recommended by friends who went to Lefkes in Athens. We hoped the food would be just as good as they described. I have no way to say if it tastes the same as in Greece but it sure is one of the best Greek places I’ve been to in the USA. I highly recommend. If you don’t have a car it will be a bit of a hassle getting there. If you do have a car, they offer complementary valet parking . I almost forgot, they were very kind in accommodating my dairy allergy.
Loved everything about this place!! Can't wait to return. Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere and fantastic service - not to mention a super cute GM. Thursday night party too! On my way....
What an amazing experience... My husband and I enjoyed the most delicious mediterannean cuisine at Lefkes! Their open presentation for fresh fish was beyond our expectations. We chose our fresh fish and watched as our server took it right into the kitchen to be prepared. Our appetizers were absolutely mouth watering. The fresh oysters and dip trio were magnificent paired with a wine by the General Manager - I think his name was Michael. Wonderful! Be sure to save room for dessert as their selection is exquisite!
I do not recommend this restaurant for one simple reason, staff does not care about patrons! I was barely greeted and left alone at the front... I was seated in a good spot and introduced to specials of the day - at that point, all seemed to go well. After placing an order, I’ve waited more than an hour for my food to arrive... I’ve complained and was served complementary sponge cake and ice-cream - things, I do not eat and felt bad that they wasted food. Besides, cake looked like it was someone else’s leftovers crumbled up and served with scoop of ice cream on the top, drizzled with whatever.
Again, there are myriad of restaurants with better food and superb service... you will be wasting your money and time if you decide to eat at this place!
We so enjoyed our first time here, this was our second visit. Having dined at the parent restaurant in Santorini last summer, we continue to be thrilled by Lefkes in Englewood Cliffs. The restaurant has beautiful, contemporary decor and a variety of seating options including a lovely outdoor garden. Most importantly, everything we ate was delicious and plated artistically.
Appetizers include yummy Greek specialty offerings, which are large enough to share. The wait staff is friendly, attentive and happy to explain the ingredients in the traditional food. The seafood is fresh and impressively displayed on ice but most importantly, grilled to perfection!
Every forkful is a treat. For apps, we had scallops, spinach pie( can’t remember the Greek name) and clams on the half shell. My salmon entree came with a variety of bite sized grilled vegetables that has my mouth watering now as I write this review. Our son chose a whole fish that he said was flavorful and superbly grilled. My husband had the octopus appetizer as his entree, which he loved equally to the first time he had it here. Don’t skip dessert, some are truely amazing.
This restaurant is on par with any fine New York City restaurant. Invite your city friends to cross the GW Bridge and join you for a treat.
Excellent restaurant, food and service
2nd visit. Better than the first if that’s possible! Food and ambiance are exactly what I’m looking for in an slightly upscale casual restaurant. Service couldn’t be better! The Greek food is inspired, Greek at heart with nice touches (whipped feta dip!). I had the salad with grilled octopus. It brought me back to a small dock in Naxos, perfectly prepared, fresh fresh fresh. Do yourself a favor and get dessert. We had the galactoboureko (phyllo filled with custard and I brought a piece of baklava home for my husband. Both were fresh and perfectly prepared and fantastic! Really this is a place I’d bring all my favorite people to and I hope they’re super successful and around for many years.
Halibut dish was dry. Appetizers were great. Helpful and knowledgeable waitstaff.
I will never go back. On the menu it clearly states that with the whole fish it includes the vegetable of the day. The waiter never heard of this and spoke to the manager and states, that's wrong. If it's on the menu shouldn't you honor the request.
We also were sitting outside and a guest while eating was smoking. We asked the waiter isn't that illegal, he wasn't sure.
Lovely! Food is amazing and my waitress Zoe is wonderful!
Great food and service!
Thank you Lefkes for an AMAZING date night dinner for my husband & I. Eva, Veronica, & Marvin treated us like ROYALTY‼️We absolutely loved our food (very well prepared, savoring every bite) & loves the dessert treat. We thank you very much for the hospitality & will be back very soon.
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
Food was fabulous, and service very good.
However dinner for 4 over $430. Expensive.
Food was greasy and bad. Frozen chicken from Costco
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.
Food was fresh, well prepared and carefully presented. Our server, Eduardo, made sure our large group felt comfortable. We will certainly come back in the near future.
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.
She was amazing!!!
Once again great food and service. chicken lemon soup yummy, Steak, fish and spinach pie were excellent.
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.
Lovely ambience. Food was good
Waiter needed more training
Owner very accommodating and polite
on a week end night, apres 6 pm the restaurent was empty.
it must be depressing to the waiters, and whever is in charge
it is a beautiful space and i wish them well
Food is good service was average on a slow night for them.
Nice atmosphere with friendly service. Appetizers were good and great for sharing. Good place to go in a group to try many of the starters.
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.
