I love Greek food, and Parthenon is the best. I love how they have different fresh sides depending on what is in season and available; it allows me to get my favorite entrée and still change things up. Very good wine selection. The desserts are...More

Reviews were good so we stopped while in Lincoln. Big mistake !! The restaurant was not busy but service was only mediocre. Pastitio was a large portion but swimming in watery liquid. Pasta was not drained. Server expressed an attitude when I mentioned how wet...More

I adore Greek food so my expectations are high. This place did not disappoint! They had lovely kids menu options for my toddler while I enjoyed some darn good Greek food. Service was great and attentive. Zero complaints here!
