I've been going to the Symposium since my great aunt (who lived 3 blocks away) used to take me there in the 1970s when I was a kid. I don't get to NYC as often as I'd like now but I've been back a few...More

Fun little Greek restaurant tucked away out of sight. Reasonably priced (but be warned: there are no refills on iced tea or other beverages). They day we went, the service was not good, but they had a large party in the back that probably demanded...More

The place is very nice and quite! The stuff is friendly, the atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxed. I very like Greek cuisine. It was pretty good, but not the best one. But we were really enjoining spending time there.

This is a great place near Columbia University for excellent Greek cuisine. Not fancy, a major CU hang out, and very reasonably priced. They serve the full range of Greek dishes although the menu is a bit challenging. Authentic and fun.

Started coming here about 2 years ago. Close to Cathedral of St. John the Divine so it makes a great place for dinner before a concert there. Service is excellent and food is spectacular. Also very inexpensive. Try one of the gyros...a glass of wine.

This is not the greatest Greek food you will ever have, but it's far from the worst. It's a cozy basement place with a down home feeling, and waiters who feel like they have been there forever. Easy on the wallet.

This is a family run consistently wonderful old fashioned Greek restaurant. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is funky and it's a Columbia U hangout. Very casual.
