Just ate at It's Greek to Me last night. Food was ok, but the service was terrible. The greeter was not around for at least five minutes, and then our server never came until we asked.

He claimed there was a mix up. But when the whole staff is joking and not paying attention (as we could see) then I highly disagree it was a mix up.

The .75 cents for 4 pieces of small pita bread is wrong on all levels. 4 pieces is a joke, they should fill a plate with 6-8 and make it look full. Build it into the cost of meal so consumers don't see it is another good thing they should do.

Service is just as valuable as food. I do not think I will go back for a long, long time.

I just ate at Its Greek To Me, and I have to say that it was the worst meals that I have ever had! I ordered a shrimp dish, and the shrimp were hard as a rock and stale. My partner had the halibut and he had to use a knife to cut through it! I have never seen anyone make seafood this bad....I will never go back.

I enjoyed the experience of the spacious garden view within a city atmosphere. The selections (featuring the flavorful, tender lamb) were good. The service was attentive; the music flowed quietly (rather than blaring) to leave us room to talk.

This is the best and most Authentic Greek food in the Twin Cities. The Octopus is to die for and the Roast leg of Lamb is tender and delicious. Don't order the steak as you might be dissapointed, but you should be trying the Greek dishes anyway, so it would be your own fault!

Their egg lemon soup is to die for! Fun place to be, to visit & eat. On nice days the patio is a great to sit and people watch. The decor inside on the walls is captivating.

We eat here everytime we are in Mpls. It is one of the highlights of our trip. Great Greek food!! They catered our daughter's wedding 13 years ago and we still love it.
