Pan fried Kaseri cheese
Chicken breast skewered, rice & potato
The food was outstanding, and the portions were huge. My husband raved about his salmon, and I loved the pastitsio. Our server, Salvatore (not sure of spelling) was delightful, helpful and prompt. A lovely evening.
My husband and I were going to the Blackhawks VS RedWings Hockey game at the United Center and wanted to get dinner beforehand. I chose Athena based on the pictures of the cool all glass windows and greenhouse style rooftop. Unfortunately it was pouring rain and very chilly in the restaurant sitting next to the glass. The food was average for a Greek restaurant, nothing stands out as spectacular or bad, just average. I will give it a try again when it is warmer out.
food was great.
server very attentive. great greek place.
This restaurant is amazing! Been seeing it in greek town for yeas and never knew it was such a gem! The food quality is outstanding and its actually decently priced. They have the BEST calamari in the city and all the seafood was extremely fresh and the portions were pretty big. Everything tasted wonderful and the staff provided great service. The restaurant is very aesthetically pleasing with beautiful hues of blue paired with rich earth tones. It almost has a beachy meets classy Vegas vibe. The only thing that I didnt like was how bright the lights were and they ran out of rice just as I placed my order. But overall Id give 9.4/10.
The food isn’t that special. It isn’t bad it just isn’t that good. We expected more. Made the reservations about 4 days in advance. My husband who is not Greek but is a gourmet cook makes better Greek food. Meh.
Out server was spot on. We had to be at a game and from the moment we sat down to the time we left everything was perfect. And the food, always amazing.
The food was delicious and our waiter was excellent.
We had such a great time. We met up with our daughter for dinner for the first time since she moved downtown. The food was amazing. My favorite appetizer was the fried eggplant band the grilled octopus. Everything we order was actually delicious!! We will be going back again soon!!
Delicious food, amazing service. We had a wonderful time
Disappointed the host would not allow us to dine on the outdoor patio claiming it was “ closed”. Huh? It was 8 pm!!! That set the tone for the entire evening unfortunately. Inside table- poor lighting and loud. Could not hear music. Food good though.
Excellent food and great service! One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago.
Too noisy. You cannot have a conversation without shouting. The food is very good though.
Appetizers were fabulous. Lamb chops were over done. Very noisy!
Athena never disappoints, great atmosphere, passionate service, tasty Greek favorites. Family friendly, yet sophisticated and hip enough for groups of friends on a night out.
I went here for my birthday, and the service was excellent. The food was delicious, and the interior design is gorgeous.
Great food and unique atmosphere. Very enjoyable every time I visit
Food, wine, and service were fantastic. Loved that is was open for the fresh air. All around wonderful experience.
Great ambiance with the patio. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Service a bit slow but that’s to be expected these days. Overall I would definitely come back!
As we go several times a year. Never disappointed.
Wonderful dinner!! Food was awesome.. we felt like we were back in Greece! And our server was very professional and kind.
Wonderful place to enjoy a meal with friends, family and loved ones. I brought 2 friends from out of town and they loved it.
Food was good with generous portions. Bread was an afterthought and might as well be straight from a supermarket. Service was adequate but somewhat robotic. An enjoyable meal but not outstanding.
We went to Athena last Saturday with friends, and we LOVED it, even though it was raining, so everything was closed up. Beautiful ambiance and good food. Five days later, I was taking a customer out to lunch, she has been in Greece several times. I just knew she would love it. We sat on the patio close to the waterfall. So charming, we felt transformed to the real thing. We had great, attentive service and a really nice lunch, we will be back!
Athena surpassed our expectations. The food was excellent and I appreciated our waiter's recommendations. Wine list was extensive, although the were out of some bottles which was a shame. Loved the atmosphere, it would be even better in the warmer months with the roof retracted. There was a nice dedicated outdoor area too. We would come back.
Amazing food and fast service!!
Server kind of acted like he was doing us a favor. Food was good and came out fast. Several pigeons roaming around the tables around us which I thought was a bit weird.
This was my second time at Athena, and it was great (better than the first). Our server was friendly and attentive, and the food was great. The octopus is tender and delicious, and the kebabs are great.
I was blown away by Athena. Staff was wonderful, our waiter was great and the busboy was a scream! (We had trouble closing the water bottle and the bus boy came by and moved to the lid to the other side. He kept coming back and pouring water AND closing the top, It was very funny. Your atrium with the collapsible roof was elegant.
Service very slow. Watered down cocktails
Great and relaxed environment with open air energy
We had a fantastic weekday lunch on a beautiful sunny day! We ordered numerous appetizers and salads and spent several hours devouring them all. I felt like we were dining in Greece rather than Greek Town!
Our friends were totally impressed with the restaurant and plan to return soon. Always a delight for my husband and family.
Great place with wonderful outdoor seating, and friendly accommodating staff. Very large menu with something for everyone.
First time dining at the Athena. Food was good and moderately priced.
Waitstaff was attentive… Restaurant itself was gorgeous. Most areas were open air, so we really got an outdoor experience. We definitely would go here again.
Reliably excellent dishes and outstanding service. It's become our go-to date night.
It’s a really nice place, we just ordered some appetizers and they were really good as well.
Fantastic as always!
The ambience is very nice. The service is good. But the food was lacking - both dinners were over cooked and sort of bland. For the prices I would have expected better.
Tosas was our server. He was amazing and really fun. He helped pick out an awesome white wine for us and helped my guests with food options/decisions. We had a wonderful time celebrating my 30th birthday and we all had an amazing time. We will definitely be back.
The food, service, ambiance was all outstanding! We will definitely come back.
