I have been at this restaurant several times and visited with two other friends for lunch on a Tuesday. I was delighted with the service and it looked very good for my friends that I chose this restaurant. the food is very consistent and the service was outstanding. Our server was very attentive, respectful and friendly.

I was craving a moussaká and after finding Christakis on an internet search, decided to give it a try, and I wasn't disappointed! It was very good! They have a good selection of wines too and I am looking forward to going back and trying more things from their menu.

Four of us went for dinner on Friday night and again it was fabulous. I had the rack of lamb and it was wonderful. My wife also had it and it is about the only restaurant we will order lamb from. The other couple had moussaka an gyros and they said it was great. Nice bottle of wine from Spain... More

Christakis is a family favorite, and a favorite of people in the area. It is often crowded, so get there early. They have a dining room and a patio--both are fine, but we love the patio. The food is always wonderful and the service is great! We have tried numerous dishes (salmon, lamb, tilapia, gyro) and it is always delicious.

We had a celebration at Christakis. They couldn't have been nicer. Food was great and service outstanding. We were out on the patio which was very pleasant. We can't wait to go back again.

We have to say that this was one of the best dining experiences we have had in a long time. Front patio was nice and relaxing (especially with water fountain in center). Service provided by Elizabeth was excellent and... More

Lunch was excellent. The Dolmades were the best I've had, sauce was wonderful. They did have options for gluten free. Not sure how they are on extreme allergy/celiac, I did not ask, I have a celiac son but he was not with me and for me, I just don't feel good after I eat it and so they offered cucumbers... More

We had gone here a long time ago and somehow forgot about this place. We returned last night and will make sure we don't forget this time. The restaurant is nice as its basically a small, intimate setting. They do have outdoor seating if you prefer. We encountered several different people throughout our meal and everyone was friendly and efficient.... More
