Their Greek food is delicious, portions are large. The Greek salad is great and their hummus is a favorite. Everything we have tried here we have loved. Great for take out as well! We live nearby and walk here frequently. Highly recommend!!

It had been a while since we ate here and I regret returning. The staff ignored us and everybody else (our waiter made it clear she was either just a grumpy person or did not care what people thought of the restaurant or her table side manner) and were rude, the food was served on styrofoam plates, my wine in...

This place is in a small place on Devine St. Food is fairly good but lack of real bathroom (one in the kitchen) and use of paper plates, and plastic forks, makes this a better take out place. It is also kind of expensive for this type of restaurant.

Very casual place with really fresh Greek food. Above average & very good pricing. We had the gyros and liked them. Small place so I wouldn't go with large parties but a great place for a small group.

We eat here a couple times a month. The owner/chef is from Corfu, Greece and makes the best Greek food. His wife makes the best cakes as well. All the fish dishes are fresh and I have never has a dish I didn't like. It is always busy, but the wait is never long. The place is small and parking... More

This is a regular in our lunch rotation. It is a quant location, you will sit in plastic chairs if you sit on the porch and you will eat with plastic ware but to me that just adds to the uniqueness of the restaurant. I have never had a bad item on the menu and have eaten there for years... More

While visiting family in Columbia, we had the opportunity to dine at Devine foods. Even though we had a party of eight, the staff pulled tables together and we were seated quickly. We have many different entrees but the Pastichio was my favorite along with an amazing plate of flounder. We have a great appetizer plate and enjoyed some Greek... More

They will ask if you "need" bread with a meal. Greek Salad dressing is mostly vinegar and they must count the number of feta cheese crumbles on the salad. Are those things really going to save them $$. Local neighborhood atmosphere that is supported for this reason vs. the food quality. Would not go out of my way to return.

Always a favorite spot. Food and service is great. I always get the gyro but have seen other dishes and they all look wonderful. Save room for the amazing desserts! They have a great variety and they are marvelous! parking can be an issue around lunch time so make sure to bring change for a meter, if needed.

Thank Maria V
