Service was really good. Our waitress was very helpful. Good Greek food in a nice neighborhood restaurant.

We've been coming here for over ten years. The last couple of times we've been here the Gyros have a great taste but were served warm at best. Pita bread wasn't toasted like in the past. Disappointed again.

We met friends for an early dinner at Olympia because of later plans. We've all been to OKHT a number of times and we're looking forward to our favorite Greek salads and gyros. Because of the time we were able to seat ourselves and chose a booth in the bar side of the restaurant. My wife and I arrived first... More

The food is great, but the portion sizes are smallish. It's funny, but I wrote a novel, and there is a scene there, though I don't mention it by name.

Went here for lunch and was expecting a better meal, I had the Moussaka. It was cool temperature as if it was leftover from the other day. The taste was not all that flavorful, I may go back and try another meal just to make sure it was not a bad day for them

At different times for dinner I've dined-in and called in orders-to-go. For the times I've dined in the table service has been good and bad. When I arrive to pick up an order-to-go it has been difficult being acknowledged, I always seem to have to find someone even during prime time. All of the times I noticed customers are second...

The flaming cheese starter was like dinner and a show! Be certain and leave room for desert as it is worth the time and effort! The wait staff was eager and so very nice and helpful. The food was very tasty we enjoyed both our meals! The location was not hard to find and we are glad we had our... More

Very flavorful lamb burger and the best baklava I have had in memory. This restaurant has been here for years. I had been here 3 times before and never found it very good. Gyro portions in past have been small for price and not well browned. I happened to be in the neighborhood and in the mood for Greek, so... More

This is one of my favorite places in St. Louis and has been for years. I always get the Shrimp Saganaki appetizer which is jumbo shrimp sauteed in garlic butter, scallions and tomatoes, covered with melted feta cheese and served with pita bread. Phenomenal! I followed that up with the deluxe gyro consisting of lean ground beef and lamb, served... More

Amazing food, great atmosphere! The patio was a nice place to sit and have a beer, watch traffic and passerbys.
