So, I've been coming here since the '90s. The food is always fresh, interesting, and delicious! I remember when 'Mama' came from Greece and would make her special baklava. Oh my! I've never had better! You can't go wrong here if you like Greek cuisine.

Epsilon is okay for Greek food. Good selection and quality was ok. Not exceptional. Had much better Greek food at other places. Their website is much more stylish and elegant than the actual restaurant. Don't be deceived. Hummus was very watery and low on taste. Dinners were very expensive but you do get a lot of food. Really way too... More

We had a great experience at Epsilon. After a long day of driving it was so nice to sit back and relax in the welcoming atmosphere. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff answered our questions and made excellent recommendations. Their bread and accompanying dip was delicious and opened our appetite for the main course - which arrived at just the right... More

We came in for late appetizers ended up having dinner too. Started with saganaki and tramasalata which was very good. I ordered the braised lamb which was also very good comparable to Greek restaurants in Chicago. My lady friend ordered the roasted chicken and it was good too.came with a little rice and roasted potatoes with a little tomato sauce... More

Amazing service, great little place... food was good but didn't stand out. Big portions with bread served with a sort of dip. Would give a 4/5 if it wasn't on the pricier side.

We dined here recently on the recommendation of a family member. The place was packed, yet the owner, Chris, found us a table. His attention to his guests could be seen throughout the evening. The garlic dip smelled and tasted wonderful. I had the lamb tenderloin while my other dining companions had lamb shank and a kabob with a red... More

Not a fancy restaurant by any description but a good example of Greek food done well. We recommend trying the taramasalata (dip made from salmon roe) as it is not found commonly in the US.

Four of us enjoyed a nice evening. We wanted to share around and the waiter totally rolled with it. He helped with suggestions and helped us put together a great meal. Good food and nice atmosphere.

I had lunch here and had the lamb souvlaki. It was delicious and came with salad, rice pilaf and bean salad. It was filling, delicious and fairly priced. I will be back and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Greek Food.
