Amazing cheap greek food! – Love this place, friendly and kind staff and REALLY great food! Had a big party and the we were very well taken care off ..
Good food, good staff – Went there with some friends the other night. The staff was nice and attentive. It's more of a romantic type of place. Really good food. Can't wait to go back and try some other stuff.
great Greek food, will go back to try everything – Went there with my fiance, our first excursion into Bay Ridge -- we're renting in Park Slope, figuring out where we can possibly buy a place to live -- we found that place & others on the internet and decided to look and see which one we wanted to try, the other places were Middle Eastern. First thing we noticed is places in the area were incredibly bright inside.
Agnanti was the first place we saw that had nice decor. Simple but nice. It was tolerable as far as light but they could turn it down at least a bit, and the place would feel more intimate. Service was very attentive. We went for an appetizer with cheeses wrapped in filo which was great. We had the mousaka, which seemed special -- we don't have a personal standard of what mousaka is supposed to be like, but this was distinctive because the top was very smooth and fluffy. It was certainly very fresh and piping hot. We had a racque of lamb (citysearch said correctly spelled racque was an "inappropriate word") special which was spectacular. Both dishes came with lemon potatoes which were good. We feel like we didn't even scratch the surface of the food offered there -- there's lots of interesting-sounding items on their menu which seemed like very distinctive Greek specialties. I've been to some good Greek restaurants but hadn't learned of many of their offerings. Looking forward to sampling more there. And at the end of the meal one of the waiters appeared with dessert. We thought they just liked us but I just read it's complimentary. It was a kind of squares of semolina cake with syrupy cherries and creme fraiche. We liked it, and it was a nice gesture that they just put it in front of us, kind of like being in someone's home. But people generally like to choose their desserts (or not have dessert, then it'd be a shame to waste it) -- you might want to ask what they have in store for you in advance and see if you want it or if you can request something.
Takes Me Backa to the Plaka! – The perfect Greek taverna experience to relive those memories of Athens and beyond. Try the grilled octopus for starters and the main dish of grilled calamari is as good as it gets. Simple, inexpensive, warm and friendly, just like you remember Greece...
Good Greek Food – Been there three times and each time had a different meal all excellent. You can even make a meal by just having appitizers. Friendly service. Recommed to all.
The best FOOD! – Opened 3 blocks from my house - went 3 times in the first week! Grilled octopus, calamari, musaka, all a must. Great salads and the dessert (which is COMPLIMENTARY) is so rich and delicious...friendly service - a little slow when it gets packed (which happens often). The crowd is completly mixed; families; couples; teenagers - I recognized all the local Greek business owners and their families dining there; which I think is a great compliment to the cooking! Worth every minute you have to wait and every penny you spend.
