    Understand that this place is rather pricey. After a generous tip we were at about $90/person. That said, I left very full and had some leftovers, so we probably could have ordered less. I want to emphasize one point: the service was spectacular. My wife’s bass was partially prepared by our “waitress” at our table. I put waitress in quotes because this is beyond the scope of responsibilities I normally would attribute to that role. Additionally, they had a special menu the night we were there and items I was expecting were not listed. Penelope said they could make the dish I was looking for and anything else that was not listed. That was very accommodating and the keftedes were my favorite thing I had. It’s not a place I can afford adding to our regular rotation but a place we will return to when we want a special night out.

    First time coming here with my wife and it didn’t disappoint a bit. The food was pricey, yes but it was worth the quality and quantity of the food. The spreads were ABSOLUTELY amazing!!! We had definitely enough food to take home. The staff was attending and friendly. We had a great experience and will be back!!! Thank you!!!

    We had a party of 10 for a brunch-birthday get-together on Sunday. Everything was perfect. Our server team was attentive, professional, and very personable. Our primary server made excellent recommendations and expertly took care of our group. The food and drinks were delicious, but also beautifully served at the right temperature. Everyone in our party was very happy and impressed with the quality of the food, beverages and service at NISI. Highly recommend Nisi Greek Taverna - we will be visiting again.

    The food has always been good. The service was good, except we felt rushed. Prices were comparable, but I wouldn’t call it a great value. Two people with a glass of wine each, no appetizer, no dessert for $100+ with tip. It’s nice inside, but the noise level almost drove us out. When their music paused, it wasn’t bad at all; I wish it had stayed off. I go to a restaurant to enjoy a nice meal with friends. If I want to dance and party, I’ll go to a club.

    I wanted to love this place but the food was mediocre. I had the red snapper and it was dry and lacking in flavor despite being blackened. I added shrimp. They placed 2 on top and they were delicious. I didn’t even have my leftovers boxed. The cocktails (margaritas) were good. Our server was excellent. The place is very nice however the music made it hard to chit chat. So yeah….

    Our server was wonderful and we really enjoyed the feta and honey appetizer and I had a delicious salad. Unfortunately, the fish cut more like a steak and was a disappointment.  we will try it again and hopefully next time will be better.

    We booked for their much advertised Sunday brunch, only to find out they do not serve brunch, according to the waiter it wasn’t selling well so at 10:45am we were given their dinner menu. Restaurant opens at 10am waiter stated he was waiting for bread, never brought any out, in an empty. Tried the Bloody Mary’s - unfortunately mix must have been old, had a funny taste. I will say the decor is beautiful, dinner menu looked like they had some nice options, but again we booked brunch. And I still have the brunch pop up ads on my FB, very weird.

    Bustling, noisy restaurant that provides a fun atmosphere. Intriguing cocktails and a good variety of selections in pasta, seafood and steak, all with a Greek flair, of course. Steaks arrive butter tender. Very pleasant service. Can be pricey depending on what you order.

    The food is consistently delicious. Service with Dimitri was friendly & efficient. Have dined here 3 times within the past year. Usually we order a selection of sharables, but this time tried the Paidakia ( baby lamb chops). Great flavor and perfectly cooked med-rare temp. The menu consists of Modern Greek with Traditional dishes. It is a NW Indiana gem 💎.

    This is my second dining experience here and was happy to say that the service is still on point. The cuisine is Fresh , creative ,and flavorful. Some of the menu items are made in house and are noted in the description of the food. I do wish very much that the Ouzo marinated herb crusted Octopus with squid ink tarama with citrus sauce be put back on menu. Such a unique twist & excellent flavor profile. It’s better than the run of the mill Octopus in olive oil & vinegar you get on other Greek restaurant menus. The dining room is lively and decorated with authentic items from the NISI area of Greece. This is a must dine venue !
