If want your Greek Fix head to Sotiris. Near Guelph Line and 403. Get what you want it’s all good. Don’t be afraid if ordering lunch items for dinner. It’s all Greek to me!

Attended for a family birthday dinner for 4 at around 4:30pm. Not busy at all...perhaps 4 tables in a huge restaurant easily accommodating 75+. We were seated at a table we later found to be near the kitchen area opposite a half wall separating where...the dirty dishes depository was located and enjoyed the very loud sound of dishes and cutlery crashing during our stay. Ordered 2 (two person/portion) platters plus more to start. Within minutes a food order that wasn't ours arrived by a different server who insisted it was for us and walked away...only to return a minute or so later to take it back acknowledging her mistake. Not sure if that other table would be pleased to know their food sat with some strangers for a short while. But, I digress.... When our order arrived, the food was of average taste, but below average in quality. All of the meat items were over-done, dry, and warm at best. The souvlaki was so dry it had to be removed from the wood skewer by hand as there was no way to remove them with any cutlery utensils. But at least the battered fried shrimp were tasty and tender! Suffice to say it was a terrible meal that had obviously been pre-cooked and re-heated. Certainly not of the standards claimed in their website. Normally, this would have been addressed with management at the time, but the family just wanted to leave without a fuss. No extras, desert or birthday cake. All-in-all, an underwhelming meal and service for $175+ (the server received 15% despite it all) and not to mention that someone's 87th birthday celebration was a flop. Reached-out to the restaurant for their review and comments..... crickets. So here I am writing a negative review...which I’ve never done before. Seems a shame after all the effects that COVID has had on this industry...the good ones seem to close-up and places like this leave a bad taste for everyone. Extremely disappointing. Won't be back...and neither should you if you like good food and expect a decent dining experience.More

We arrived as a large group with less than an hour to spare. Our server Toni was amazing. Toni asked if we had time constraints. Right away she was on it. She was super friendly, very efficient and had us all served, completely satisfied and...done with time to spare. The food was fresh and so yummy. I loved my Greek salad and the chicken rice soup was outstanding. I will definitely return, when I have some time to sit and relax and enjoy dessert as well. Thank you Toni for the outstanding service.More

Went for lunch. Ordered the gyros dinner. Got a boring salad mostly lettuce with little dressing, a small smattering of feta, 1 mini tomato and 1 olive. The gyro meat was obviously cut days ago and was dried up. The rice was so boring -...no flavour. I love Greek food but this was totally disappointing. Left most on my plate. The only good thing was the potato but there wasn’t much of it.More

Absolutely the best waitress ever... ***Marina you are a Gem*** Marina was so wonderful and attentive to our needs and was overflowing with positivity and smiling while providing GREAT service. The food was also amazing, the service was so amazing I didn't want to be...rude and take pictures as Marina kept interacting with us and we wanted to give back 100 % of our attention. Trust us when I say Marina is FANTASTIC. We eat out a lot and this is by far the BEST service we ever had including High end restaurants. Sotiris Burlington is a MUST TRY.

1st time customer who won't return. I get all over there are staff shortages but I don't know if that was the case here or not. Certainly service was terrible. We were a party of 8 and had multiple staff bringing items, it was very...unorganized and slow. 2 .5 hours to get through a mediocre dinner. 1 dinner had to be returned, had to keep checking if food items were still going to be coming. 1 person received wrong food item and meals seemed rather greasy. When we received our bill waitress said when we made reservation we should have been notified for our party size there would be an automatic 18% gratuity. We were not informed of this and thankfully were not charged. Had it been good service it would not have been a problem. As the restaurant began filling up it was extremely load do to the open nature of the facility. Hard to carry conversation.More

What a nightmare from start to finish! In fairness to this awful restaurant, it was a Saturday night and the place was packed. Consequently, the noise was unbearably loud and my partner and I could only communicate by shouting to eachother. Once seated it took...forever to catch the eye of a server who obviously had little or no time for us and clearly we were a nuisance. Finally she stayed with us long enough to order a bottle of wine and some food. Two Greek salads were literally thrown on our table and when she poured the wine (no tasting offered) she sloshed it into the glass with such force that it splashed a substantial amount onto the table. The food was inedible .. one greasy chicken souvlaki and a large gyros dinner that looked and tasted like leather. Most of both dinners remained on the plates. Avoid this place ... there are plenty of GOOD restaurants in Burlington ... this is not one of them...More

I am so sad, I look forward to my dinner here for my birthday every year. My boyfriend surprised me and brought me home sotiris after a super long day at work for my birthday. I was so looking forward to it. I usually get...the large Greek salad and gyro platter. My salad had only a little bit of dressing (half a container), huge chunks of red cabbage (too hard to eat), 3 ends of a head of lettuce (the end part u cut off) and maybe a teaspoon of feta. I don't know what happened to the quality of this salad but it has gone way down hill. My gyro meat was tasty but very oily and cold. The tzaiki was spilled over in the oil so I was not able to enjoy this. Together our meals came to almost $60 and I feel this was such a waste as I did not even get to finish or enjoy mine. This went from one of my favourite resturants to not feeling worth it to return. I am sad to write this as I used to love it there.More

Poor food, terrible lighting, even worse noise in the room due to vaulted ceiling and harsh surfaces. I would never go again.

Fantastic food, generous portions, and beautiful service! What more could you ask for oh I know at a great price. That is Sotiris for our family of Greek food fans. All six of us have different items from lamb chops, steak, chicken, to my favourite...gyro plate with great openers like the calamari or the three dip. You have to have a slice of the vanilla cream yum yum the best. It’s tough I am sure during the pandemic but these guys do an unbelievable job at takeout and staying true to the safety measures. It’s our go to for Greek every time and during the pandemic we have enjoyed this great restaurant 4 times. Great job Sotiris keep it up!!!!More

The worst experience for take out. Incorrect change. Rude staff. Wrong order. The one staff member even chased after out the door Me to double check I had the correct order, but it was still wrong. When I returned to get the right order, they...lied and said they remade it, but I could tell by the time and the temperature of the food that they just reheated the original order that had been sitting there 1 hour and tried to pass it off as fresh. It’s unfortunate because I came here 7 years ago and had a marvellous experience. I will not be returning ever again.More
