  • One of the best post-holiday eats! the Mediterranean diet, rich in fish, olive oil, tomatoes, dark greens, chickpeas, and dark vegetables, is inherently heart-healthy and rich in antioxidants.
  • Voted Best Greek Restaurant of 2013! No matter the weather, inside Gardens of Salonica feels like an oasis in the gritty city. From the atmosphere to the delicious dishes, Salonica remains a favorite.
  • Go as a foursome, listen carefully to all the specials, and then choose five entrees to share.
  • the moussaka is to die for!
  • In one word -- Amazing! If you are looking for excellent Greek food, this is it!!
  • Extremely good and quick gyros. Fries were amazing and not like any I've ever seen. Very fresh. T sauce seemed like their own.
  • Ask to be seated in the first room. The second room gets kind of noisy.
  • Watch out for Punchy. He's in the tzatziki. Waiting. Watching.
  • Voted Best Greek Restaurant by City Pages in 2012! We suggest saving room for dessert after your meal, there are many delicious options!
  • try the cod dish.
  • This place is absolutely delicious. The lamb shank was fall-off-the-bone tender and their pita bread is just perfect. Everyone I dined with loved their meals. Can't recommend enough. It's awesome.
  • Slow service
  • Gyros are great and the waitress we had was hilarious.
  • Gyros are great.
  • Really cold and kinda pricey. Good food though
  • Anna and Lazaros Christoforides's sunny restaurant with the bubbling fountain and the moist, lemon-scented air is a vivacious, herbal oasis in a cold meat-and-potatoes world.
  • They only accept 2 cards per table.
  • Good geek food. Lot of vegetarian options. Try their melitzana and tyro starters, taste really well together.
  • City Pages Best Greek Restaurant - 2013
  • Get the oversized bean entree. Yummy.
