Great service! Such a neat place inside. Went here based on previous reviews for our anniversary dinner while on a night away, we were very pleased with such friendly service and yummy food! The prawns were my favourite !!

For many years now, we always have rave reviews by our family and friends when we treat them to a celebration dinner at Ithaka! So happy when we arrive to a warm welcome, the lovely décor, hear the joyous laughter of the many restaurant guests,...hear wonderful music, even surprise entertainment, and of course the delicious food fittingly appropriate for special nights out. I could go on and on, and wouldn't be stretching the truth to say just how well we are treated at Ithaka. Thank you! :)More

Well a lot to say about our first experience at this restaurant. We chose it as the restaurant we would first attend after the first night of dining in that was allowed. May 26 in fact. What a wonderful experience. I really love the atmosphere....Well set up and clean. We both loved it! The staff clearly work very hard at making things right. They take a great deal of pride in their excellent service. The owner has a watchful as he wants things done right and right it was! Kate was our server and really excellent! In fact we know we will be back as it was a lasting memory. Well recommended! THANKYOU Kate for doing such a great job.! THANKYOU to the cooks! Cant wait to go back!More

We ordered dinner to take out and I called ahead because we have garlic issues in our family. They were most helpful with providing us dishes that didn't contain garlic, and making substitutions for us. They even made a whole tray for 4 with no...garlic! As well as being so helpful, the food was exceptional and delicious and we all loved it!More

Exceptional service by all the staff. The food is the best Greek food I’ve had. We sat on the patio and enjoyed it very much. I hope others will take advantage of this wonderful place and the great food and people.

Food was well prepared but relatively bland. Portions were small but prices were close to double what most Greek restaurants charge. The lamb chops at $42 did not include tzatziki, and a Greek salad substitution for the rice and potatoes was an additional $5. Takeout...service was good and the offered Australian cab/sauv bottle for $15 was appreciated.More

Dear JerrysX2028FD, I would encourage you in the future to familiarize yourself with a menu of a place you are looking to order from. It would have been more fruitful to have you simply call the restaurant with concerns/or questions you had. I say this...More

We had our food delivered to our house due to the new health measures and it was as amazing as always. Hands down the best Greek food in town. I can hardly wait to visit the restaurant in person again. Superb foo and professional delivery...service as well which was also very nice.More

My husband and our two young children dined at Ithaka for dinner a couple of weeks ago, and it was a fantastic experience. The food was SO delicious (I’ve been daydreaming of their spanakopita ever since - oh my my, was it tasty). Everything we...ordered from appies down to dessert was top notch. What really put Ithaka over the top was the service that accompanied the amazing food; the hostess was lovely, our server ‘Big Dimitri’ was very accommodating, and the visits to our table by the owner, Dimitri, really added a personal touch that made us feel so welcomed. My six year old drew him a picture while we were dining, and my three year old keeps asking when we are going to Ithaka again to ‘see Dimitri’ ;). We will definitely be back!More

Truly a restaurant that cares about their food, clients and staff. Amazing atmosphere upon entrance, arrived on time and immediately taken to a comfortable table. Redone interior, which the Chef told us later had been the efforts of the entire staff, is a delight -...fresh and clean look in white which just feels Greek. Some personal touches in the restaurant that could be explained with small explanations which would add to the ambiance - but wonderful when explained by staff. The service is a star here - we were welcomed by the owner at seating and served by Lana. You just feel welcomed. She took the time to change our wine order but brought us each a small sample to explain the difference. Ordered the apps pretty much right away but then waited - a lost art or skill in service today - to take our main order. The Saganaki flambé was ordered by two people and was lit at the table with a Greek expression! Very cool and unique! And delicious! I had the Kalamari, which was excellent with fresh tatziki. My wife had the Moussaka, which is made by one of two elder women in the kitchen. She loved it. I had the Greek combo, finding the ribs spiced excellently and the chicken succulent. The vegetables were a delight, fresh and well spiced and cooked. If you love root vegetables, the beets exceeded expectations. Our table guests enjoyed their food as well. We had a pleasant surprise when the Chef and owner came out to speak with us after I mentioned that one of the reasons we came was his frank responses to Trip Advisor reviews. He shared his experiences since the start of Covid and his family’s efforts to restart at a new location. I found him and his team open, honest and believable. His plans for the future are wonderfully entrepreneurial and I wish his team the best. A delightful authentic experience. Will be back.More

We do our rendition of zorba's dance most evenings at Ithaka. It's spontaneous and do our dance when we have a few minutes during our dinner service. It's not cirque de soleil, but our guests enjoy it. It's fun, come check... More
