    Fantastic Friendly Service

    From the moment we walked into this wonderful neighborhood restaurant without a reservation we were made to feel at home. The cocktails were superb, the wine excellent, the service attentive. We shared two well prepared and presented appetizers; tzaziki and feta with peppers. The branzini was delicious but I felt the mousaka was heavy on the bechmel sauce and light on the eggplant, and spices. The atmosphere was very nice. Next time I'm in The Slope this is the place for me.

    Hidden gem

    Every time I go to Faros it's half empty and I don't understand why... The food is delicious and reasonably priced considering the generous portions. I love Greek food and this place never disappoints; it feels fresh and well made, unlike some of the more mass-market places in Astoria. Also, the servers are super prompt and professional. If you haven't gone yet, give it a shot, even if it looks empty. I don't want this place to close!

    just OK-overpriced

    We ate here a couple of nights ago for the first time. The appetizer we ordered included beets that were still frozen in the middle when they arrived. Ick. The fish I ordered - the special - was delicious - two small pieces. I did not think to ask the price as it was the special, but when the check came and I saw it was $28 I was shocked. I really thought that was not a fair price. The menu is varied-lots of choices - our server was very friendly - but not sure I would eat here again.

    Good food

    I've had authentic Greek food and this comes pretty close to it ... but they used way too much dill .

    Not the best

    Went on a Tuesday night. Disclaimer: I've never had Greek food before, but I was hoping for something flavorful and unusual. The wine was great, but unfortunately that's all the good I can say. The service was poor - the waiter kept looking away and talking to other customers while I was trying to ask questions. The food, calamari was doughy and disappointing. The fried bacalao tasted like cardboard and had no sauce. The lamb was alright, but nothing special. The cheesy music and decor didn't help. I was really looking forward to trying Greek food but I have to say that was one of the most disappointing meals I've had in Park Slope.

    Pretty good, but...

    This place has really got it down in terms of flavors and spices. We ordered the grilled octopus and it was divine. An area where it could improve is in its overcooked proteins. The pork chops (I know, who orders pork chops) were very overdone and the shrimp was also cooked too long. Not to mention, it tasted a bit freezer burned. But the sauces and spices they used were amazing. I will go back to try again, and hopefully the chef will have gotten the cooking times right!

    Great Find

    I live around the corner from this wonderful place; finally had lunch there today and regretted not having gone in sooner. GREAT food, attentive wait-staff, one of the best new places in Park Slope. Restaurants come and go in this neighborhood; this restaurant is here to stay.
