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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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!

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.

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.
