Make sure you make specific seating requests prior to dining. We requested a corner table yet were seated next to a large private event separated only by a thin curtain. We literally could not have a conversation! The front desk person should have told us there would be hearing issues period as we would have asked to sit in the... More

We went there with my niece and older sister (who is a bit 'picky on food'. The waitress was wonderful and offered her suggestions after we requested her comments. We shared an appetizer of stuffed grape leaves which were excellent. I had a special of duck that was great. My wife ordered a lamb dish but it came as ground... More

Arrived for lunch without reservations and we were seated in the lounge area. Service was better than average. Sparkling water arrived within seconds, attentive to clearing of plates and a polished all around service staff. Food was equally good, if not better. Beet salad was a big serving (almost too big) but delicious. Walnuts were perfectly caramelized and glossy. The... More

You usually think "seafood restaurant" when you're in Ipswich, but Ithaki is an unexpected "modern" Mediterranean restaurant near the downtown area. The food is interesting and excellent, the décor is understated, and the service is great and professional. The only minor negative is the menu is not self-explanatory; not all the menu items have explanations, so it's a bit difficult... More

A must if you are in the area. The food is excellent. I actually recommend most everything on the menu but the grilled octopus is amazing as is the calamari...and no better lamb anywhere. Nice wine list, always too full for dessert but always rave reviews...attentive service without hovering. This restaurant is well worth the trip...many times over!!

Ithaki is special. The owner pays special attention to ingredients, many of which are sourced during his travels to Greece. The restaurant has a more formal side with tablecloths, and seating in the cafe/bar area featuring paintings by local artist, Thorpe Feidt. I am Greek, and thus very critical of traditional dishes, but can fully recommend the moussaka and the... More

More than we expected in a small community. Some of the best Greek food we've had. Frequently there is good Mediterranean food in some "very casual" establishments. This is great food in a upscale venue --- yet not overly expensive. The servers were friendly and patient for those who may be unfamiliar with some of the dishes. Either "small plates"... More

This upscale Greek restaurant was recommended to us by our innkeeper. The food was nicely presented and tasty, but my lamb kabob was overdone, even a bit charred. My husband ordered the fish shown in the photo, which he enjoyed. Best to make a reservation, if you dine between 6:30 and 9:00.

Really nice venue, recently updated. Everything we have tried has been really good. Greek salads are large, so make sure to split it! Excellent service.

Upon recent suggestion, we recently visited Ithaki. First impressions were solid. Upscale, up beat vibe with very comfortable seating options. Our server, Christopher, was very helpful with menu suggestions and explaining the different dishes (which is great if you have not ever had Greek Food before). Our dinners, desserts and drinks were all absolutely fabulous. Being from Portsmouth NH, where... More
