We haven't been back for a year, since new ownership. We used to go often, maybe once a week but it started to change. We decided to try it tonight again, mostly for convenience. The 2 stars are for my husbands lamb which he said was delicious. It went downhill from there. There were four of us. First of all... More

After a VERY disappointing evening in November, we vowed never to return. However, after posting the details of our experience on TripAdvisor, the owners asked us to reconsider, and threw in a bottle of wine as enticement. Last week, we finally decided to try again. Much to our delight, both the service and food were outstanding. We had the calamari... More

Two visits and the same perfect quality each time. This is truly a fabulous find with the most delicious Greek food! The exterior makes one wonder if the address is correct as it doesn't "look" like it would be a good restaurant. Don't miss the magic inside!!!

We are in town on business and decided to try this restaurant. We had dinner at 5:00pm on a Tuesday and the food was delicious. We had the gyros plates and served more than we could eat. The wait staff was pleasant and informative. Prices are reasonable.

We recently visited the restaurant and decided to to try "Feed me" selection where the chef picks a four course meal for the table. DELICIOUS! We had a variety of dishes from appetizers, salad, main course and dessert. Every dish was wonderful. The service was great and we left feeling very satisfied and stuffed. I would highly recommend.

Delicious, authentic family style meal served by energetic/professional staff! Kudos to co-owner Jeff & team for the exceptional experience. Our 3rd visit, 1st as couple, 2nd with brothers/spouses & this one with expanded family. Same quality service and dining.

The menu is full of wonderful choices and creative variations, from appetizers, wine pairings , entrees to desserts! The staff is friendly and informative. The food, Fantastic! The atmosphere is very Mediterranean and clean, do be prepared for the occasional throwing and breaking of a plate or two with the famous "Ompaa" with certain traditional dishes being served. We left... More

Being a Chicago native and having enjoyed authentic Greek food for several years, I was genuinely excited when a couple that I was visiting in Tucson recently suggested that we have dinner at this restaurant. We had reservations and were seated immediately, and there were still several tables that were empty. We ordered a bottle of wine, a serving of... More

Jeff B, Owner at It's Greek to Me, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. As you can see from the large number of 5-star reviews we typically receive, your experience was not consistent with the high quality of food and service we provide to our customers. As the owner I take 100% responsibility for your very bad experience. I remember this evening all too well, and everything was going... More
