Food is delicious, tzaziki not too tart, and the meat is so soft and tender. Everything tastes so fresh. Leftovers the next day are even better...!

First time. The decor is about two and a half stars and parking is tight unless you get into the small parking lot but once inside you forget about all that and enjoy very good Greek food very well served. We had several small plates-all very good and the cutlery was changed after every plate as it was between the... More

Came with 3 friends on a Friday. Be sure to make reservations. I ordered the Lentil Soup which was quite delicious. Had a rustic taste and was a great way to start the meal. I ordered the Briam a la Mystiko which was also very good. I should have replaced the rice with the Greek green beans. For dessert we... More

Spent a great evening here with friend for whom this is a regular spot. We had a tableful of small plates so we could pick and choose. The flamed cheese was a special treat.

Enjoyed our dinner at Mystiko. Our server (Tanya) took al the time to explain the menu, decided for the Mystiko tenderloin and the beef souvlaki, both dishes were excellent.

As a vegetarian I was not very enthusiastic when my boyfriend said he wanted to take me on a date to a Greek restaurant. I assumed my options would be not much more than Greek salad, but to my delight my assumption was proven completely wrong! Our server (who was so friendly and hilarious, btw) gave us some great recommendations,... More
