Dinner started out great, good atmosphere & friendly servers. NO BREAD! When I say no bread, I mean even when you order the dip sampler, they give you four pieces of pita bread (for 4 people). We tried to delay ordering dinner, however the waiter told us we should order everything at once, that there would be plenty of time between courses. Dinner came out while we were eating the apps. To make matters worse a dish was spilled on one of the ladies. She was assured dry cleaning would be "covered" and they would comp us dessert....... After all this B.S. who wants dessert? Two unwanted desserts later and no talk of the dry cleaning we left unhappy. This establishment has alot to work on.

I have eaten at this place at least 5 times and every time it gets better and better. All the appetizers, salads, and entrees are delicious. I'm not sure why there are bad reviews. Also the doughnuts for brunch are out of this world. For consistently great Greek fare, do go to Barbounia!!

I recently went to Barbounia with a large party (12) for dinner. We started with a round of drinks and a selection from the appetizers. The spreads and breads were amazing. We should have just had drinks and apps and the night would have been a huge success. The entrees weren't great. Nothing special, nothing that stood out and nothing worth the price. Stick with the apps and you're in for a great night with friends.

My boyfriend and I came here last night, excitedly, for his early birthday. We had heard of the restaurant and figured it must be good. Boy, were we mis-led. The place is so overhyped it is almost a joke. The only thing that was good the whole night was my mojito. His salad was drenched in dressing, His lamb and rice tasted like a cheap tv dinner, and my eggplant dish tasted like shampoo. The lemon dessert reminded me of something a kid would make for a bake sale. We came to test out the "restaurant week" menu, and let me tell you-if that is what they serve for restaurant week when they are trying to drum up more business....I'd hate to see what they serve on a regular basis.

The moussaka was not good. I've had better in a million other places. I ended up peeling the congealed layer of cheese of the top to make it edible. My friend's sole was good though. And the spreads were really great. Oh and our $40 bottle of wine was a screw top which was sort of surprising.

I have been 2 times and both times it was great. The service was great and the food even better. There is something for everyone on the menu. Great wine list. You must try the fried feta cheese! Bad for your diet but what a treat!

We enjoyed an early mother's day brunch there. They accomdated our big group and were courteous at all times. The food is delicious and their brunch selection is fun. We got a sampler of hummus, babganoush and spicy feta (at least get this one side dish) which was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
