We were there for lunch (after 2pm) to celebrate our daughter’s last day of exam. What a mistake to go to this place. We were greeted by this cold short hair waitress, no smile, no greeting & no friendliness from this woman. She never came...to ask how our food were, when she came to collect the plates she made a loud noise pushing the knife & fork loudly in the plates. This place used to be our favourite place to go whenever we were in town, but this rude waitress changed everything. On top of service, the quality of food have gone downward as well. We will have to go to another place for a nice & friendly service next time.More

This used to be a great place for food, despite the rude and ignorant staff members on their team - they should really consider a staffing facelift. Food quality downhill in recent years, not to mention the unprofessional manner of their kitchen staff. Recently ordered...lunch and was greeted with a very rude person on the phone- when picked up, again a very rude woman handed the food and opted to wipe her nose with her hands just before passing me my food. It was shocking and revolting. If you ever go in there, you can't miss this extremely unpleasant human being.More

Pick up of some appetizers. The naan bread was like eating leather. The dips are half the size they used to be. This place used to the best Greek in Guelph. Not any more. Go to Creekside Kitchen, amazing Greek food.

Hade a reservation for 10 of or family, confirmed 3 days before. 3 hours before the dinner time they called back and cancelled the reservation. Apparently they were over booked. They will not see me again.

I’ve eaten at this restaurant many times over the last 14 years. The food and the service is always excellent. I highly recommend it!

We ordered takeout, and the food was very good. Nothing spectacular, however. This restaurant is a Guelph staple.

Decided to order some gyros and Caesar salad while coming home from out of town. Placed order for pick up, they said 45 minutes, arrived in 40 minutes. Sat inside and waited another 35 minutes.....what’s frustrating is that if they were that far behind they...should have just indicated that on phone. Other Greek restaurants in town which I will be going to in future.More

All though the food at Greek Garden is evidently delicious, their poor service over powers the foods quality. I called in an order for pick up and the gentleman on the phone requested I arrive at 6:30 PM to pick up my order. Once I...arrived at 6:30 I was rudely greeted by a lady who said in a very aggressive tone "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?" I said my name and suddenly the entire team began to look flustered looking through order history clearly not finding my order. Then the lady began YELLING to her staff what we had ordered, again very flustered. Finally, after waiting until 7:00 PM patiently without showing any signs of frustration my name gets called. The lady does not look at me whatsoever and reads the total and hands me the machine. Once she rudely handed me my takeout bag again, without eye contact I noticed I had asked for extra Tzasiki and was no where to be found in the bag. I asked for an extra, and she rolled her eyes, walked over to the bin and tossed one onto the counter without saying anything. Along with this, once I got home I noticed my request for no tomatoes was clearly not listed as every food item had tomatoes. All though I enjoy the food, their service is disgusting and I will never be coming to Greek Garden again.More

One of our favourites in Guelph. Food prep is very authentic, always delicious, abundant and reasonably priced. They have a seafood platter which is my go to and is excellent in every respect. The service is always prompt and efficient, with a demeanour that can...be mistaken for nonchalant, but is really just a seasoned pro on top of her game. Accurate and obliging in every detail. Ambiance is very satisfactory with background noise levels conducive to cross-table conversation. Happily recommended, though parking is awkward.More
