    Excellent!

    Great food, and an excellent value. Generous portions, not too expensive.... and the delivery has been very quick! This restaurant is a great addition to the neighborhood, and we certainly have needed a variation from the ubiquitous Sushi bars. I recommend Athena. Haven't found anything I don't like about this place.

    I could've made it myself... but better.

    I ordered delivery based on some of the great reviews I read. Thanks for nothing, guys! I ordered the grilled octopus which came with a kind of foamy "I've been frozen a long time" texture. The accompanying beans were good, though. I also ordered the Horiatiki salad, which was good, but not great and THE most sad and uninspired Moussaka I've ever had in my life. It tasted like someone's first sad try. My mom can make it better... and that's saying a lot. I just didn't connect emotionally with the food the way I have at other Greek restaurants. Lots of missing flavors, lots of missing inspiration, lots of missing... the mark. Oh well. There goes $40 for food I could've cooked better myself for an eighth of the price.

    Incredible!

    I was in here the other day and will definitely be back! I tried a mussels special as an appetizer. The combination of flavors in there was something I would never think of myself but worked so well together! As my main meal, I ordered the lamb strudel that was highly recommended. The owner could not be more right about making this one of his specialties. Again, the pairing of a mint yogurt sauce over the lamb was new to me and again, I was pleasantly surprised! This is a very unique spot and I definitely encourage anyone who loves good food to visit!

    Never again

    Although I appreciated the staff coming out to find out why we were not happy with the food, I must say, I have not had such bad food in a long time. Specifics: soup was OVER salted, mussles had good sous and plenty of shells but were missing the actual musles, chiken which was on a "specials" menu was way too dry and felt very over crusted.The good part: bread was great and quite liked the spinach pie. At some point I thought that perhaps the waiter is too busy hence the lack of attention to the table outside, but then saw him hanging about by the bar, so think the service sucked also. Oh and I forgot about the "mashed potatoes" that were either 90% flour and 10% potatoes or just 100% out of powder, never tasted anything so horrible in my life. They claimed it's due to the lemon juice and basilic.

    Great Greek

    I love Greek food and it's great to have one in the Slope - the food is excellent think the prices are a little high for some of the dishes but overall it's a great restaurant and the owner and rest of the staff are very friendly!!!

    Outstanding!

    My lovely girlfriend brought me to Athena knowing my passion for Greek food. I was not only pleased, but will come back here as often as I can. The food was outstanding and the staff was amazing. Especially the owner came out and took the time to talk to us, ask us how are food was, but give us great stories about his native Greece!

    Best hospitality and amazing food!

    My boyfriend and I tried this restaurant for the first time. Our server, the brother of the head chef made us feel like we were family. The food is outstanding, and the hospitality is like nothing I've ever experienced in New York. The atmosphere is elegant and calm, without any pretensions. Overall a fantastic dining experience!
