Souvlaki GR Midtown
This place is always amazing! We've been here about 10 times and are always excited to go back.
Food was great!!! Only complaint was their was no AC and it was hot muggy night
Cute restaurant with good food and reasonable prices in midtown. Only drawback seating is very very tight.
Love this place......
The food is always delicious at Souvlaki. It can be very noisy!
Food is fantastic and decor is really nice but its obscenely loud in the restaurant--our table could not hear each other talking over the obnoxiously loud music. I asked our server to see if the music could be lowered and I think they lowered it one iota. Probably would get takeout but would not go back.
if you are in the area make a reservation as it is a small place but so worth it ! we go here about 5-6 times a year when seeing a show at Columbus circle or theaters close by We Love the lamb chops , the baked feta with tomatoes oh so yummy never had anything bad the seafood specials are alway a winner the staff move like lighting in such a tight space, congrats to the owner having a such a great staff
This location is too loud and small however the service was attentive and fast. The hostess was super accommodating and nice even though she was clearly super busy. She took the time to help our group out with the reservation and I really appreciate that.
VERY CUTE GREEK THEMED CAFE BUT NOISE LEVEL IS BEYOND BEARABLE AND THERE WAS NO A/C EVEN ON A RATHER WARM HUMID EVENING. HAD TO WAIT EXTREMELY LONG FOR OUR ORDER WHICH WERE THE SPECIALS AND VEGETABLES. OTHERS WHO ARRIVED AFTER WERE SERVED AND FINISHED BEFORE WE RECEIVED OUR MEAL. STAFF PLEASANT BUT SERVICE NOT GOOD. BOTTOM LINE ...OVERBOOKED AND UNDERSTAFFED. WILL NOT RETURN.
Excellent food! Great service! Lamb chops were incredible! Octopus was phenomenal. Fresh ingredients! Greek approved!
We were welcomed warmly, looked over the menu and only rushed a little. I've been coming here for a while and enjoy the food. It's genuinely authentic and delicious. never disappoints. Their appetizers are really terrific, served hot; the chicken meatball skewers are among my favorite. Wine menu could be expanded, but all in all, I love this place!
the food was amazing however the noise level was intolerable. go to the downtown location instead.
Food and service were excellent! The place is small but very cute.
You have to get the grilled octopus
Nice, cozy place with friendly staff and delicious food. They have a buy one get one free drink special at brunch but you have to ask for it.
We had a great experience dining here. The food was very good, and the service was excellent, The space between the tables, especially in the front section is a little tight, but that was the only small thing to complain about. I will certainly go back here.
The food here is great and a really good deal. Service is always pretty bad and it’s wildly loud but overall it’s a great spot
Very loud environment, small space, very difficult to hear anything.
Such a fun spot to grab dinner with a friend or two. I think it's a little loud and small for larger groups. The food is consistently good and it's never as expensive as you think it will be.
We keep coming to this place for the food. It is noisy and crowded and without a reservation the wait can be long. The music is a bit distracting and the tables are quite close together. But the food is so so good.
I missed Greek music for a real Greek ambience....
The food was AMAZING!!!!!! Staff were friendly. The only negative the place is tiny... Tables are too close to each other. But other than that worth trying.
Service was beyond rude throughout dinner and even though we had a reservation we were there for less than an hour after our meal they hovered while we signed the bill and as soon as the bill had been signed they asked us to leave. They overbook the restaurant at the detriment of the customers. If you want to be treated like you are a drive thru you’ll enjoy the experience but if you want to enjoy your meal with good service and a noise level conducive to talking take your business elsewhere
Very rude staffer when we arrived. Accused me of inappropriate behavior. She was doing me a favor. Food and service was excellent but would never return because of this extremely combative experience upon checking in
You can always count on Souvlaki GR to be amazing!
I wish I could give five stars only if they turn down the music. It was way too loud I couldn’t talk. For Greek lover like me, we just want good food and atmosphere, especially after attending the classic music concert in the Carnegie hall, we want to talk about the music we have listened. But their loud music ruined our mood. I asked one of the servers to turn down the music but he didn’t do it. Hey owner it’s not a dance club, I won’t come back again until you change your mind.
Great value in excellent location. Good for quick bite before shows.
Always a great meal, solid service, and good value.
This was a last minute decision so we booked online. Just as well as the place was packed. It's a small restaurant so space is limited and the noise level is high, but the place is really well decorated and it all added to the atmosphere. Even though the restaurant was full the service was still good. The $20 mezze with 3 dips could have been a meal in itself for 2. The mixed grill was also good and offered enough for 2 so that if there was something one of you didn't like it didn't really matter. Overall an excellent meal with real vibe.... Recommended
Basili esta muy fuerte.......
First, we had a reservation, which means they are holding a table so you don't have to wait, yet they would not seat us until we were both there and then we had to wait while walk ins were seated. We were seated under the sound speakers - the music was blasting! I asked if they could turn it down a little, the hostess said no - people liked it. I asked the tables on either side if they liked the music and both said that they too had complained. The food was okay and it is realatively inexpensive, but it was a terrible dining experience!
Music was painfully loud and made the experience unpleasant. Food is good but space is oddly configured and cramped
As a testament to its popularity, the space was completely full and the space is rather small for the number of tables they squeeze in. This full capacity crowd was very pleased to be together so the talking above the music was very loud, leaving it very difficult to have a conversation with my husband. I'm not sure what the restaurant could do to minimize the noise level, but that is what I would like since you ask.
Too noisy! Too salty!
Unpleasant. Way too loud.. Radio blasting and terrible acoustics make it so loud you can not speak with anyone.
Real authentic Greek food. Ambiance was terrific.
El lugar muy lindo, comida buena, mesas muy pequeñas
The meal didn’t have the best flavor I had tried before to Greek foods
A hidden gem in the neighborhood. Woken nearby for years and didn’t notice. Very unassuming front but inside has bright white and blue decor expected of a Greek inspired place. Food is terrific. I had octopus salad on black eye peas. Quite delicious. The vegetarians options also quite good
I usually love this place. I felt we were treated as intruding on Greek Easter evening. They were out of most of their specials. I ordered a lamb dish that was more like leftovers. Very little meat and mostly bones for $35. Very disappointing.
