Ilios Noche - Park Rd. Ratings and Reviews

The food is great but the business behind the restaurant is shady. Prices on the menu are for the half priced portions, but you order and receive the full portion, at the full portion price. But no one tells you this. So glad we looked at the bill and remembered what the price of our dishes were. This is unfair and deceptive business practice. I guarantee the majority of people dining there have no idea. I'm happy to pay more for a larger portion but don't be shady and deceive your patrons.

Hospitable, efficient service and consistently solid food, even on busy holiday weekend. (Sound level when full can be really challenging to conversation though.) We were prompt for our reservation and seated immediately. Courses were delivered promptly, but without our feeling rushed. Only sound level and the following bar issue keep the review from being all 4 stars.
But once again an emabarrassment for Charlotte: another bartender (multiple restaurants, not just Ilios) who can't make two "very, very, very dry Beefeater martinis on the rocks with a twist."
This time, my guests were served unchilled gin and an apparently equal part unchilled vermouth, straight up, with olives. Observably wrong on every point, even before the "very, very, very dry" part! 😱 They spooned ice from water glasses into their cocktails and made do, despite my encouraging their asking for a re-do.
It has become an inside joke that they will celebrate an extra Thanksgiving in any year they make the drive to CLT and actually get a martini as ordered when we go out! That hasn't occurred in five holiday visits straight at any restaurant. They aren't the sort to send drinks back unless what's off is their brand or once, vodka instead of gin. But CLT is getting a bad rep, and I am getting embarrassed for my city. Steakhouses seem to do fine on martinis here, but other restaurants, no matter how upscale have failed me. Would love to know why this is such an issue. On such a basic bar choice, why don't they get it right the first time? (Serious.)

Best grilled octopus I have ever had! We recently travelled to the Greek Isles and although very good the grilled octopus there could not beat what I had last night. The striped bass was to die for as well. Kudos to the chef!

The meal was served before the soup appetizer was able to be finished. So the soup had to be put to the side in order to eat the meal when it was hot. The side order of mushrooms was way too salty, even for someone who enjoys salt on their food. The chicken piccata was very oily and heavy. The chicken was cooked well in itself though.

Food and service was really good. If you want to go for conversation and be able to speak to your significant other, make sure you ask for a booth. The open seating areas combined with the "energetic" noise makes it difficult to hold a conversation. Likewise the deuce tops for couples are too small to hold the entrees, apps and beverages.

Went with a friend for a chance to "Catch up." We each ordered that Ilios platters which was exactly the right amount of food for each of us. Small salad, some nicely done potatoes, and two skewers of either chicken or lamb. We brought our own wine, the corkage is $18.00.
It was quiet enough for us to talk and catch up.

My party met at Illios Park Rd for a 1st grade "Mom's Nite Out". The RSVP that started at 12 quickly grew to 15, then to 20! The staff was extremely kind and understanding thru all of my reservation changes, even when only 14 ladies were able to come.
Our waiter was AMAZING, the appetizers came out quickly, and the entree's were delicious! I will definitely recommend Illios Park Rd. to anyone looking for a intimate date nite or large group dinner.

Consistently great food and service. I typically meet my elderly parents here about once a month. IT's quiet enough for them to have a good conversation. The lunch time special is always a great value and extremely fresh. Best Greek restaurant in Charlotte, along with the one on Providence Road.

Great food and great service. Waitress was very attentive and so was the gentleman that brought us our water and bev naps. Sergio the manager took it up a notch by presenting us with Nutella to go with our Loukamades. Will be back again.

We have eaten at this location numerous times before and have been pleased, but this was by far our worst experience. Maybe it was just an off night. Hostesses were young and rude. They did not honor our reservation request for outside seating. They told us that even though we had a reservation for outside seating, there were walk-ins ahead of us on the outside seating list and it was on a first come first serve basis. In the past, they have honored our reservation request for outside seating, but no effort was made to do so this time. Only comment hostess made was... is inside okay? Having no other option on a Saturday evening, it had to be okay. Poor handling of the situation by the hostesses. In regard to our server, she was just okay and it took longer than normal to get our wine and food considering it was not that crowded. Also when serving our food at the table with the assistance of another waitress, they both reached over us and across the table to serve our entrees instead of walking around to each individual and serving the proper way. Absolutely no training or etiquette. Then the wine was not separated on the bills as requested. Just a debacle of a night all around except for being in the company of good friends!

This restaurant has gone way downhill since it opened. Timing of food delivery to our table was all screwed up (despite our express request that the three courses we ordered arrive at intervals, everything arrived at once; we asked the rude overweight woman who brought the food (for some reason, this person was not our waitress) to remedy the issue, and she reacted in a very unprofessional fashion and sauntered off to openly complain about us to her co-workers). Later in the meal I watched someone who looked like the manager check in on every table other than ours. Obviously he skipped ours because he didn't want to hear the negative feedback. They definitely do everything they can to rush your meal. The mixed drinks seemed rather watered down. We were thrilled when this restaurant opened and have eaten there a dozen times, but have had extremely bad experiences during the past two or three visits after some great experiences when it was new. Definitely would never return.

Ordered a wait staff recommended sandwich, it was good, but not as good as I expected based on the recommendation.
Also ordered one of their signature cocktails only to find out they were out of ingredients to make two of their drinks.

We had friends in town from NY and when our original plans fell through due to weather, we booked a last minute reservation at Ilios Noche. My husband and I eat here all the time so we know it's tried and true. We live their salads, spinach pie and zucchini chips. We decided to go off the beaten path and order their Italian dishes and not their Greek dishes. This was a mistake. The marinara on the Spaghettini was tasteless and the meatball was more bread than meat. The cappuccino we ordered at the end of the night must have been made with watered down coffee. I still have it 4 stars due to the outstanding waitress we had that night, the ambiance and the Brazilian music that was playing when we came in. I would recommend this restaurant to others but would steer clear of the Italian dishes.

Been here quite a few times including private catering, but this was by far our worst overall experience. The waiter was not on point and the food wasn't worth the price other than the grilled octopus which was delicious.

We live close by and have truly enjoyed the restaurant but last Saturday night, (8/20) we brought friends with us for a 7:15 reservation. The greeting we got was wonderful and getting drinks and ordering our food was timely. Then We waited a very long time for our food and my husband's moussaka tasted good but was cold in the middle as if it had been frozen and they heated it on high for outside to be very hot but middle not completely thawed. Then we waited a very long time to receive our checks. I was very disappointed and now hesitate to return or invite guests.

I have been to this restaurant several times. I had great experiences in the past. I was extremely disappointed this time. Service was awful! We saw the server twice. For the order and then bill. We poured our own wine. When the food came, things were missing. I had to get up and request again when the items did not come. Overall bad experience. Probably won't go back.

Love the Lamb burger and the chickpea salad. Always a favorite. The eggplant and zucchini chips as an appetizer is a MUST. I tried a pasta dish this time and didn't love it, good but not fantastic. Always great service and we will definitely return.

This was a special event as my daughter and grandchildren were in town. They had lived close to the Park Road location, moving before it opened, and often ate at the Providence Road store when they lived here. Since there were 6 of us, we had a reservation and were quickly shown to our places. Due to the volume of customers, it took a bit for the server to come. However, once she was there, she took our orders and the drinks and food arrived promptly. The food was excellent and the servings substantial. My wife and I each took the smaller offering and had food to take home. There is a good variety to please every person, although Greek based food is predominant. For the table, we ordered 2 servings of Calamari, 1 fried and the other grilled. My advice, step up and try the grilled, it was outstanding. The Chicken Parm was outstanding and the portion substantial. Be prepared to take some home. On leaving, we noticed that they offer a lunch special. We will be back to take advantage of that as well as returning for another dinner.

I like this restaurant. In the past, I have always gotten great service. This time it was just ok. The waiter came over to take our order and I asked if there were any specials. He had to go check to see what they were and if I had not asked I don't think we would have known that there was a special. Spinach pie was delicious. My sea bass was the best I had ever had. I could not stop eating the Tuscan braised giant white beans. They were delicious. My husband got the greek salad with lamb. We thought the lamb was overcooked. My sister-n-law got the lobster ravioli and my mother-n-law got the chicken lemonata. They both liked their meal.s

Worst service I have ever received in Charlotte. Me and the rest of my party were ignored at the bar after sitting at the bar a and waiting for a drink for over 25 mins. We left the bar area after waiting for 25 minutes to order a drink. Then it took our waitress 10 minutes to come by to great us, another 5 to take a drink order, and another 20 to receive the beer and wines that we had ordered. She also forgot the 4 appetizers that we had ordered along with brining out an incorrect meal for one of the members of my party. She also had other people come by to drop off the food and never checked back during the duration of the meal. My husband and I had to share a fork and knife because of it.

A very pleasant experience. While it was their"Restaurant Week" special deal, the food was excellent with large (over-large?) portions and the service was professional and attentive without being hovering or intrusive. Look forward to returning.
