We did not have reservations but were able to get in. The service was slow in the beginning but picked up after awhile. Food was good. especially the lamb.

On a cold winter's night, having arbitrarily picked several Nordeast restaurants that were jammed with people waiting for tables, and a din that made it difficult to even ask how long the wait would be, we walked over to Gardens of Salonica. And we were glad we did. This charming storefront restaurant was busy, but it was also warm, friendly,... More

The restaurant was not full on Saturday evening. The food was authentic Greek comfort food. The dishes looked very attractive and tasted great. We liked the service. The only negative things was temperature control in a room. We visited in January. It was cold and not comfortable. I finally got my warm coat on; and I dined in a coat.

We had a nice experience eating at this restaurant. Food was delicious. It's a small room and it was quite busy and noisey the night we were there. Our server was a bit overwhelmed but did a good job.

Food was very good. Lamb was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Pita was soft and just plain delicious. Services was good- seemed like a family run business. We were there with a party of 10 and we were a bit snug but not uncomfortable. My only complaint was how cold it was. Just when you think it couldn't get colder- the... More

We are always treated to wonderful food that has an authentic feel. Last night we felt like coming for a visit to Anna's home. Each of us shared the combination appetizer plate to start the meal. Delicious. The wine flight gave us a taste of three Greek wines. My squash soup was the best ever.

My wife and I attended an alumni luncheon at GoS. Our group of about 20 had the back room to ourselves. We were treated to some red and white Greek wines before the meal which were quite good. For lunch, Anna, the owner, had arranged a bevy of appetizers: eggplant spread, chickpea spread and a delightful spanikopita. This was followed... More

This is a nice family run place with excellent food. You can tell they care about the food and want to make every dish special. I'm not a vegetarian, but I love the Yigandes entree!

Location was not difficult to find. Neighborhood not glamorous. The decor was simple but somewhat cozy. Felt like a family operation which was nice. The menu was a little limited but still plenty to try. The dishes we tried tasted more authentic than the usual faux Greek fare often encountered. Service was friendly. Prices reasonable. Overall pleasant evening. Would try... More
