We tried this for the first time on a recent weekend trip. The olives and saganaki were great and fun! Best yet, my partner said the chicken was the best he ever had in his life!
Should have known it was going to be a memorable meal when they sat our group of 4 next to a birthday party of 16! The noise level was so loud we could not enjoy any part of our dinner. The service was slow (to be expected on a very busy Saturday at 7:30), but nothing could make-up for the loud, rowdy birthday party revelers who wanted to share their evening with the entire restaurant. The food was just good. Not great. For appetizers the saganaki was excellent, while the spanakopita was terrible; basically spinach in puff pastry with no feta, dill, mint or scallion tasting notes. The bread served with dinner was hard and the butter semi-frozen. For entrees my son had calamares (normally an appetizer) but it tasted and looked like a beer battered fish fry. Not very good. The pastitsio was absolutely wonderful. We'd get it again. The experience seemed like a Greek Olive Garden. Not exceptional or great. No real concern about detail or authenticity. Just move 'em in, feed 'em, and get 'em out.
Loong delay beyond reservation to be seated and no real acknowledgement of wait
Amazing, as always!
Nice option in Greektown.
Had the fried zucchinis with potato/garlic spread app and the broiled whitefish for dinner. App was tasty, the spread was very flavorful and worked well with the zucchinis. The fish was fresh, lemon butter was spot on. Nice service, reasonable prices. I'll be there again soon
Terrific place for good time and delicious food and drinks
This is the first time we were in there since the renovation! Absolutely love it! More modern decor with an authentic Greek feel. The bartender, Melody, is lovely. She was knowledgeable about the cocktail menu and food menu. Top notch service! Great food!! We will be back!!
Excellent service and quality food and drinks. Would recommend to any friend looking for authentic Greek cuisine
Lovely, we were seated right away by the fireplace, nice touch
Not a good experience this time around. The last couple haven't been that great on the culinary side. New chef?
Phenomenal food and beautiful atmosphere. The service was beyond wonderful and the lamb was to die for. Would give 5 stars in a heartbeat!
Great food and great service! Never disappointed!
Plenty of room, great service. Was able to stay for a couple hours talking and eating
I have been dining at Athenas since 1993. The Food is consistently excellent and the ambiance is creative. It is a beautiful place for dining that offers an atmosphere of richness with an extensive menu and the most reasonable prices ever!
Wonderful choice in Greektown. Attentive wait staff and fpod waa delicious!
