Its Greek to Me is a nice casual Greek restaurant. It is somewhat more expensive than comparable places, but the food and service is good nonetheless.

We chose the Ridgewood location for our dinner, although we expect that all nine spots are equally as good. The restaurant itself is fairly plain and unassuming. Nonetheless, it was crowded the night we were there. The wait staff was very helpful and nice. The horiatiki, the tomatoes and cucumber salad, was huge and plate-licking delicious. How were they able... More

This place was recommended by a friend while I was in NJ for a business conference. I was not let down! The staff was friendly and the food was delivered fast, but was delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very quaint and welcoming, just like the rest of the town.

Paul and his staff have made this is a popular venue in Ridgewood for many many years. The addition of music on some nights makes this a wonderful place to relax and watch the world go by.

Not sure this place is one of a few, but the food and the service reminds me of one. There are so many other Greek restaurants that are so much better. If you are in Ridgewood and you feeling the urge to have greek, the place is just ok.

It's Greek to Me is one of our favorite places to dine while in Ridgewood. Everyone is always friendly. This time through I shook things up and tried the grilled calamari entree. The grilled flavor was very nice and it was served over sauteed spinach. Made for a nice light dinner. Looking forward to the next visit.

Their son is now an active part of the family and apparently they hope to expand further. Food appears to be quite authentic based on my travels to Greece and having eaten at a number of Greek restaurants in... More

I haven't eaten here for 7 years and decided to give it a try late night when everything else was closed. Very good food. Salad was very good. Shrimp and lamb dishes were excellent and greek yogurt with honey also very good.
