I've been going to this restaurant since the day they opened, it used to be great. The owner was there and keeping things on target. But he's long gone--never there--and now the employees run things to suit themselves. The food is still pretty good but be warned--even though they advertise being open until 10pm, do NOT attempt to eat a... More

I have been there with my husband. Greek salad was not real Greek salad.first time l have seen green pepper in greek salad. Our order's come very late. The only thing l liked was Greek music on the background even-though hardly heard

I've been coming to this location for several years. The food is consistently great. Their specials are truly that- special! The appetizers never disappoint. This is a great place to go alone, with a friend or a nice group (I'd definitely call ahead).

We have been going to Greek to Me - Ft Lee for over 15 years. The quality of food along with the variety on the menu make it a great go to spot. There is on site parking and seasonal outdoor dining. It is a BYOB so bring a bottle with you. Don't forget to save room for dessert- they... More

Food is good. Same menu for a long time. It's always busy. Service is ok. There are a lot of new places in the Ft. Lee area, for Greek and Turkish foods. Some are very good. I like the change, sometimes." It's Greek to me is good", but not my first choice.

Very average food. The owner is cheap and tries to cut corners on the small details. For example...he used to use red onions and dill in the Greek salad. That stopped. Stuffed grape leaves in the salad happens on occasion and my biggest pet peeve, crappy coffee and no half and half., milk only. And do not go to the... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Fort Lee. We eat there often, mainly for lunch. The food is always nicely prepared, and they have a special salad dressing that is hard to duplicate at home. Their only defect is that they do not serve beer or liquor; there is no bar, it is BYO only. I have remonstrated... More
