Westword's Description

The women who work at the Athenian are not there just to serve patrons; they want to get to know patrons. And so those servers see fit to get involved with every dinner decision, sometimes with persuasive forcefulness. They rarely err in their recommendations, though, smiling knowingly while delivering platters of gyros, hummus and Saganaki (flaming cheese). Those servers are merely looking out for the best interest of the diners, much as a family member might, and in the Athenian's kitschy blue-and-gold surroundings -- flanked with pillars, potted plants and statues -- it's impossible not to become part of the big Greek family.

    The saganaki is to die for!

    The food and service were fantastic! The gyro meat was succulent and the baklava was wonderful. I highly recommend! We'll be back!

    Terrific family run restaurant! Drinks were a little pricy but we went home with plenty of leftovers and a wonderful experience

    Try one of the platters. The staff is super friendly &the owner let me try the wine before I ordered. Everything is homemade, too.
