The BBQ chicken salad with Greek salad is an amazing lunch. If you ask for the pita whole you can make your own sandwich. The roast lamb literally melts in your mouth. I've never been to Greece but Zorba's makes me want to go.

When you first walk in the restaurant seems a little disappointing as you face a soda refrigerator but when you get the past the entry the dining area is small and comfortable. It is a BYOB so come prepared, however, a liquor store is not far away. A friend and I had gone to the Art Museum and went there... More

Quality ingredients and a warm family atmosphere make this a winner. As repeat customers we've found all the dishes to be excellent. The restaurant is small so please make a reservation.

Stopped in for lunch on a cold rainy day and it was such a great choice! The food is delicious, fresh, and made to order! A quaint little family business, serving up delicious Greek food!

Just went here with a group of 12 people for a birthday dinner. It was great! The food was excellent. I highly recommend the octopus appetizer and the cold plate for sharing. The price was great. It's a byob so be sure to bring your own wine. There is a state liquor store a few blocks away if you forget.... More

Me and the husband made a last minute decision to get Greek. Ordered the lamb sampler for two. Absolutely amazing food and service. It was a Friday night and we didn't have a reservation. Wasn't a long wait. Parking lot right across the street is convenient since on street parking is almost non-existent. Will be coming here again.

I went after a museum trip and ventured down the street to a sandwich shop. Starving I asked my out of town cousin and daughter to walk a little further and walked into Zorba's just because of the name....(In My Big Fat Greek Wedding) We wandered in and it was awesome! Fresh, fresh, fresh food! I ordered the large platter... More

We really enjoyed this Greek restaurant! Next time we go here, we will leave some time to order the whole bronzino for two which folks at another table had and it looked great.

We had a very enjoyable lunch here. The dining room is nicely appointed with paintings and the ambiance of relaxing background music. The menu choices were varied and reasonably priced, the food was good and the service friendly.

My wife and I spent our anniversary weekend by touring the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. (insert appropriate humor here!) We at at Zorba's Tavern on a Saturday night. I'm glad we made reservations because it was packed. And, for good reason. Their food is simply outstanding. My wife had a mixed grill; marinated pork, chicken and lamb. I've... More
