Easily one of the best restaurants in Chicago! My late father took me to this spot in the early 1990s. It’s a family tradition and favorite of ours. This place makes you feel like you have transported to Greece. All the food is sensational. The staff is funny, helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend to anyone look for Greek food in Chicago, West Loop or Greek Town.

I'm no expert on Greek food, but there's a reason this place has been around for so long. This place serves delicious food. We started with the saganaki which the kids loved watching being flambeed. My wife had the octopus and said it was some of the best she's had. I had the combination which was great. The moussaka was so good. The rest of the dishes were equally as good. Highly recommend.

This was one of the best meals I had in the last times!!! Everything was great and I was surprised about the high quality of the food! Octopus was tender and well cooked… Swordfish was tasteful and well balanced… Lamb was delicious and was melting in my mouth! I would love to go back there to try all the other dishes! The place is also very big but workers are all nice and very polite. I would like to mention Panos: he was unbelievable and we loved chatting with him and being helped by him! He was very nice and careful. Finally, price was honest for the quantity and quality of the food! I really recommend this place! Amazing food… special place… great people!

Phenomenal Dining Experience! I absolutely love this restaurant, the staff is very pleasant and accommodating. The food is delicious and the Saganaki Cheese is an experience of its own. Do yourself a favor and go enjoy a wonderful dining experience at the Greek Islands.

Great place for family gatherings. Staffs are friendly and food was awesome. Little bit pricey though. Recommend this place specifically for valet parking. Remember to take cash for valet driver tips(parking is free). They may get rude if no tips were given.

I could easily tell this is a local favorite. Many large groups of families sat around us, and they all seemed to be celebrating some special event. We were seated promptly (although it was before 5pm). The service was friendly and relatively prompt. I also liked the overall decor and feel of the restaurant. We especially enjoyed their special tomato sauce with the rice. The chicken was fantastic. However, the meatballs were a little dry (so I plan to order something besides that next time). It was my first time there and don’t know anyone who works at the restaurant. However, someone who I imagine to be the manager or owner briefly stopped by our table and thanked us for eating there. It was a great touch to a warm and welcoming environment.

The restaurant is huge. Can definitely accommodate big parties . When we first came in the manager who sat us was great. Our waitress not so much. I only got one refill on my pop. For that refill I had to flag her down to get it. I did find a black hair in my salad. My gyro appetizer was great. My husband got the lamb chops. He said they were way over done. Good thing they had iced tea and Splenda. The decor was really cool. But the food in my opinion was okay. The Saganaki was great. Cooked table side.

Pack my begs and send me to Greece, this was a top notch greek experience with flavor! Meals are all reasonably priced, wait staff is attentive, and food is prepared fast. Id suggest giving some appetizers a try as well, the cold sampler was a must if you enjoy hummus and dips.
