My wife and I attended an alumni luncheon at GoS. Our group of about 20 had the back room to ourselves. We were treated to some red and white Greek wines before the meal which were quite good. For lunch, Anna, the owner, had arranged a bevy of appetizers: eggplant spread, chickpea spread and a delightful spanikopita. This was followed... More

This is a nice family run place with excellent food. You can tell they care about the food and want to make every dish special. I'm not a vegetarian, but I love the Yigandes entree!

Location was not difficult to find. Neighborhood not glamorous. The decor was simple but somewhat cozy. Felt like a family operation which was nice. The menu was a little limited but still plenty to try. The dishes we tried tasted more authentic than the usual faux Greek fare often encountered. Service was friendly. Prices reasonable. Overall pleasant evening. Would try... More

I brought my parents here; they love Greek food and were very satisfied with the choices on the menu and the quality of the cuisine. The menu is quite large. All the food was very tasty.

Had a great lunch. We choose the specials of the day, the lamb and the pork. Both were large portions and the meat was tender and flavourful. A glass of retsina made the meal complete. W were dining here a few years ago and it was equally good then as well.

I'm local to the Twin Cities so I thought I should try this restaurant a few times to confirm my initial positive experience at lunch. The first dinner visit was with traveler friends who enjoy unusual menu options and insisted that we all eat different entrees to compare. They loved the restaurant decor with interesting rock and wood sculptures. Our... More

We brought our son to dinner for his 19th. While he is not an adventurous eater he said we could choose, so we did. He didn't enjoy his meal, but he LOVED the amazing lemonade that is sweetened with honey, and I concurred. My husband and I enjoyed our meal and my husband very much liked the rice pudding!

I was hungry for really good food and this was a great choice. We had the Greek salad and the lamb shank. It was delicious. The restaurant is very clean, the food extra fresh and made with love, and the service was just right. They also serve a Greek coffee in a tiny cup -- well worth the price. The... More

I live in Minneapolis, but this was a new restaurant for us. We have traveled to Greece and sampled cuisine from many different locals on the Peloponnese mainland. The options here were extensive, whether your needs extend from carnivore to vegan with no preference seemingly biased against. We were all pleased with our choices. We choose a appetizer on the...

Great place for a snack or meal. Try The Black Eyed Peas and or beets to tantalize your taste buds. Grab a super thick Greek coffee for a treat. Awesome food! Rebecca took care of us and made the experience more enjoyable. Swing by for some authentic cuisine. Opa!
