We've enjoyed this restaurant for many years. Last night was a disaster, however--from start to finish. First, although we had a reservation, we had to argue with the staff to get a table away from the cold wind blowing in the front door--even though there...More

I ate here with three friends. It is a very small restaurant; the sign is so faded you might walk right past it. (Actually one in our party really did walk past it.) The seating is limited. Everything I ate there was excellent - I'd...More

I've traveled throughout Greece and at Gardens, you'll enjoy dishes and flavors that are as close to what one can get if not in Greece. Skip the fries and gyros...they're good, but why go with something you can get pretty much anywhere now. Dive into...More

Thought it was a very expensive meal for a plate of greasy french fries/linguini and dry roasted chunks of meat. ($73 for 2) Charged me extra for asking for a little extra sauce. Will not go back.

I have been coming here since 1998 the food is always the same as day one. Family owned and it's one of my favorites in Mpls. If you want true Greek Food your here.

Really good food and service. The restaurant is small but didn't have trouble getting a table on a Friday night. Waiter was very knowledgeable. Our family of 4 shares several appetizers and entrees. Prices very reasonable. Authentic, fresh, flavorful food. Will definitely be back!
