Greek
Souvlaki GR offers a little taste of Mykonos in the heart of NYC. After an award-winning food truck and four years of continued success at our Lower East Side location, we have expanded to Midtown in order to continue providing New Yorkers with authentic Greek souvlaki. One step across our threshold, and we hope you"ll be transported to the cobblestone alleys of Mykonos and Santorini in order to enjoy our signature Souvlaki Pitas and other classic staples of Greek cuisine.

The hostess was very rude. They packed the restaurant with way too many tables. There is hardly room too move between tables. We left due to the rude treatment by the hostess and went to another restaurant.

Do not go there with children. They tried to sit me, my wife and my daughter at a table for two, with high chair being placed in the way of the entrance and were every water would have carried food over my daughter’s head. There was an empty table for 4 two tables away and the staff refused to offer this instead. Given the conditions, we had to leave and find food elsewhere. The worst part was the extreme arrogance of the front of the house that was thought that this was perfectly safe and comfortable.

We found this place close by the theater before going to see a show and we were glad we did! It’s a very cute place and the food is very good. We were really hungry when we got there and after getting a dip with pita and another appetizer we were almost full already before our meals even came. Couldn’t finish all the food between two of us, but it was delicious!

Souvlaki GR is my reliable place when in midtown. The pitas are my crack. So good can’t stop eating them! I was with two friend before a show we had the 3 dips with pita a Greek salad the grilled octopus and Patizzo. Not a crumb left on a plate. As always fabulous food. My only thing I tell people before we go is about how tight the space is. But everyone’s bring there never says anything side the food is that good

One of the best Greek places in town. Their salad with feta cheese original taste of cucumbers and tomatoes as in Europe. Lamb chops are succulent.

We are from the UK and spent 6 nights in New York. We visited here on our last night and it was BY FAR the best meal I ate and left me longing for more! I had the shrimp souvlaki pitta with feta, Greek fries and halloumi. The setting and staff were also lovely which made it a really special night. Thank you!

Great food but reservations definitely needed if you don't want to wait! The food is always delicious. The restaurant is always lively, a bit loud if you have anyone older in your group

The staff was so so rude ...... the place was crammed, and they didn’t accommodate for my dietary restrictions. He basically said, these are two items in the menu you can eat. That’s it. It was not a good experience.

PRO: cibo molto buono, rispecchia i tipici piatti greci; servizio molto veloce; l’atmosfera del locale ti riporta nei vicoli di alcune cittadine della Grecia.
CONTRO: musica veramente troppo alta, non si riuscivano a prendere le ordinazioni nè a parlare; prenotazione alle 20, ci siamo seduti alle 20.30; prezzi veramente alti per il cibo che abbiamo mangiato, ma abbastanza in linea con lo standard dei ristoranti di NY

Cibo ottimo. Anche con la prenotazione abbiamo aspettato più di 15 minuti e ci hanno fatto accomodare in un tavolo per due persone anche se eravamo in tre.

I love their food truck and have gotten take out from the restaurant before, but this was my first time eating in the restaurant. The tables are really close together, but that's okay--I loved the decor! Really looks like Greece in there. BUT, it was SUPER loud. I was with a soft-spoken lunch partner, which made it extremely challenging to have a conversation. I would have to ask her to repeat herself sometimes 3+ times. So, it was awkward. I'd definitely recommend the food, but depending on who you're going with, you may not want to eat in.

Very good but too tight. Tables are tiny and on top of each other. No room at all. Solid food and attentive service. If you don’t mind being crammed together, then it is fine

This is hands down one of my favorite Greek restaurants of all time! Being Greek myself, of course, I have to compare any food from a Greek restaurant to my Mom's. Well, let me tell you the food tastes like my Mom is the chef. It is outstanding! No matter what you get you will not be disappointed. I come to NY a few times a year and make it a point to come to eat at Souvlaki GR.

My boyfriend and I needed a dinner that would get us to City Center for a Show by 8. We made a 645 reservation. The place was packed but we were quickly seated but it looked like the servers were a bit overwhelmed. We split the grilled octopus appetizer (delicious) and had the checker skewer (small serving but absolutely delicious and flavorful) and the 1/2 kilo of lamb chops (good handheld portions). Tzatsiki sauce with pita also delicious. We made it to City Center by 730. Good thing we made reservations as many walk ins wouldn’t be accommodated.

I loved everything about this restaurant. The service was great and the food came out quickly. We split a meat platter and a Greek salad. It was delicious and the perfect amount of food. I will definitely come back to Souvlaki GR Midtown the next time I am in NYC

My only complaint the Air Conditioning was not working well the day we went . I need it to breath.
Would go back again after the summer in Oct or Nov or even March or April.
