Not the friendliest owner...

Food is good; however, the owner/manager was extremely rude and when we approached him with an issue he didn’t want to hear about anything negative. Also watch out for some hidden costs – they automatically add gratuity for 5 or more (including kids!!!) instead of the usual 6 or more at other restaurants and they charge for all soft drink refills even though they don’t mention that when they ask if you want a refill.

Overpriced-Waste of Time!!

I heard about Niko’s from family and thought I’d give it a try with them.

Here are my good points from this establishment:
1. I enjoyed the complimentary pita/bread selection.
2. My waiter was fantastic.
3. Wonderful atmosphere.

Here are my negative points from this establishment:
1. The entire menu was overpriced.
2. I ordered a simple Greek salad. I was presented with an appetizer sized entree…which I was very disappointed by. The salad only had four olives and two tomato slices. The salad was very bare..with little dressing. ($10.00)
3. I ordered a Diet Coke. It came in a small glass filled with ice…I estimated that I was only served 1/4 of a typical can of soda due to glass size and the limited space from the ice. ($2.95)

Overall, I was highly disappointed. I truly believed that a restaurant that had been Zagat rated and appeared majestic on the outside would have been more extrodinary and pleasing both to the mind and palate. I left still with an appetite and a hunger for better service.

Garden Salad

I actually ordered the Greek Salad, but I could not find it in the list.

I rate this dish poor because it was overpriced and was not spectacular in any way.

Truthfully, it was the size of what an appetizer salad should be. There were only four olives, and two tomato slices. I do credit the salad a bit, though as the presentation was exceptional. But, it was very bare and was in need of more dressing.
I would have expected much more out of a Greek Salad from a Greek restaurant. (My local diner has a better Greek salad with more variety of ingredients including anchovies for a fraction of the cost)!

Best in Greek Food

This is a small place and you should make a reservation.

It is real Greek food made fresh and very well.

It is family owned and operated and it shows.

The down side is they do not turn tables well, so a 7:00pm reservation can turn into 7:30. That has nothing to do with the food.

Take out is always great.

Small and cramped, but that is the style.

Almost all

The Octopus and the dips are not good.

The rest enjoy. Hey you may like the dips I have just had better.
