There is A LOT of excellent Greek in the area and Greek is my favorite so when I say this is one of my favorite Greek spots I mean it. Try the hummus and pita for sure. I really like their yogurt sauce on everything. That stuff is manna from heaven. I tend to stick with beef kabob plate, but everything looks good - esp with yogurt sauce.
Interesting – It is true you never know what to expect. Sometimes a waitperson comes right over, sometimes it takes awhile. If you need attention right away, just go to the bar and order. It is not traditional like a sit-down restaurant, it is a bar and you may need to inititate contact if you mind waiting. The food is excellent though. It is very affordable. They have amazing pizzas with great, fresh ingredients. They have a pretty good little steak that comes with amazing potatoes and onion rings (ask for sweet chili sauce) for $6!! You can't beat that. I always eat here before I see a show. It's a fun, noisy environment that is in no way threathing. Take a moment to explore the rotating art on the walls. Pool tables, a big screen tv, lotto games, live music in the attached venue, more. I think this is an all around great place with many services. Even a good ol' ciggerette machine to keep the smokers smokin'. Definitely a Portland staple.
Hit or Miss – You never quite know what kind of experience you'll get at Berbati's. One time I had a wonderful waitress with tasty happy hour appetizers. The next time, I sat at a table for 20 minutes with no service and had to initiate a stare-down with the staff to get a beer. The food this time was a real disappointment. $4 for a sandwich sounded like a good deal - but in reality, $4 for a wonderbread sandwich is a total rip off.
Rude bouncers – Enjoyed our time here. good drinks. however, the bouncers were very rude.
Good bar with nice atmosphere – Nothing rave here, but its a nice place. Looking for something different, good place to check out.
