Delicious Medditerrian Foods – I and my friend went to the restaurant yesterday. The foods were very delicious. I ate meatball and rice pilafi. it was very delicious. I couldn't eat dessert because portions were very big!
Be sure to try the restaurant.
Terrific food; terrific atmosphere; terrific service – When asked what was on the menu, the owner took my friends and I on a tour of the kitchen and probably would have let us sample, but we didn't ask. The service was outstanding. Drinks were refilled, bread basket was never empty, and the food. Absolutely delicious Greek food. The price was totally reasonable. For two people including appetizer and entree + soft drink, it was around $40. One of my favorite restaurants in the world. Not to be missed!
One of My Chicago Favs – By far best rest in Greek Town
Service is excellent even during dinner rush on week ends
Food is flat out great, quality, taste, portions, selection, etc.
Wait staff so effecient you wonder how any rest can top
Cost of meal is same as an Outback, Fridays's but his place is better than Gibson's, Morton.s. Cap Grill in quality and tatse.
Words do not do this place justice.
You can take clients, kids, family, a date, etc to GI.
I travel and eat out every week and this is in my top ten rest list on any continent, country, city, town, etc
Fish, pork, chicken, soups, salads, especially beet salad are beyond words
This palce defines value for dollar
SOME OF THE BEST GREEK FOOD I have ever tasted1 – Delicious food, excellent ambience. Prices were a little high, but honestly the food was superb - I had Veggie Mousaka and I hate aubergine, but it was outstanding. My husband ordered the Spanakopita and loved it. The waiters made us feel rushed and even though previous review had said the place was baby-friendly, I defintiely did not feel that way. Our waiter, Dmitri positively scowled at the baby and did not do anything to put us at ease. However, the food, like I said, was out of this world!
Great casual for friends and family – My native greek friend says this is her favorite restaurant outside of Greece. I have been here twice, and can't wait for the next time. It's a beautiful restaurant, has great food, and a lively atmosphere. I would definitely recommend going with family or a group of friends. They have large tables and easily accommodate everyone. The decor is gorgeous, but not overdone at all. You feel like you're right in Europe. Tables are perfectly spaced, but it isn't necessarily romantic, but it works well as a place for a date with good conversation. Great menu and great value for what you get!
Big Fat Greek.... – This was my 1st time to Greektown (Im from Florida) and I had read the good reviews of Greek Island. I have to say that they were correct. This is a very nice but casual restaurant. Was seated immediately. I ordered Dolmades, Tirokafteri for apps and the Village Salad with Grilled Chicken for the entree. Each of them were made to perfection. The flavors were so good that I could not help but over eat.... I ate almost everything that was put in front of me. The 2 mile walk there and back was worth every step!!!
The wait staff was a little slow but that kind of stuff does not bother me so to those that it does, slow down and enjoy life a little more.... You only get one shot so slow down and enjoy the experience. Overall I would have to say that this is a highly recommended place and this is from someone that is a pretty good cook and rather hard to please.

Response to the sick scammer! – I've been going to the Greek Islands along with most of the people I know, which is a lot, for over 20 years. I go to many others but this is one of my all-time favorites! As to the people who supposedly got sick, you got to be kidding. You probably got it from something you made at home earlier that day. The place is jam packed constantly and the food is fresh. Why is it that you were the only ones to get sick? I'll tell you why! You're looking for a settlement. Hmmm! Noone else has stepped forward! That's funny! If this was a common occurrence, or if it even happened at least once before in the past 20 years, I would have known and perhaps been inclined to believe you. Your looking for a scape goat to get a frivolous law suit. that's all! This is a top shelf restaurant!
