This is a must if you are in Hilliard. The food is fresh and authentic. Service is great. Value excellent. Four of us stopped by for dinner while in town working all of us enjoyed. We will eat there every time we are in town.

Recently started working in the area. 2nd visit today. Service seemed a little on the slow side both times. But food was fantastic. The spanakopita is divine!! And their house dressing is dreamy. Definitely becoming my go to place for lunch.

Thank you for the great review BuckeyeGurl72! Service is just as important as the food we serve so I'd like to apologize for the less than awesome service and thank you for the heads up we will definitely get better.

We were from Dayton, OH and meet another couple here for dinner on a Monday evening. The food was fresh and great tasting. A real surprise. We will definitely come again. A real hidden gem.

We were in Columbus for some errands and were looking for a new place for lunch. The menu was intriguing, the reviews were strong and Hillard wasn't really that far out of the way. It was perhaps one of our better decisions that day. What...More

I eat here frequently. Great restaurant. On Sundays they have a brunch with some different dishes than they serve normally. Really great selection. Much more authentic than other Mediterranean restaurants. I recommend the Hummus bowl full or shakshula with spicy beef sausage.

Came here for lunch and had the veggie platter with fresh made hummus, tabouli, falafel and grape leaves. Rachel was kind enough to offer fresh raw veggies instead of the pita bread and it was terrific. Great food, better service. Best restaurant in Hilliard.
