Athena Restaurant Reviews

  • pin15 reviewWe have been twice to Athena when visiting Chicago. The restaurant is not as noisy as the `Greek Islands`. Food has been excellent each time. The waiters know the food and make excellent recommendations. Their Calamari is some of the largest and best quality (cooked to remain tender). As with most of the restaurants we have gone to in Greektown, portions are large and a great value.

  • terri reviewWe went to this restaurant at the advice of some patrons outside of Rodity's next door. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere, service, value, and portions were very generous. The menu selection and food was delicious. Personally, I had the combination meal, which had a serving of their mousaka, pasknees

  • Laine Too OWe went on a Saturday night when other places had a 1/2 hour wait. Saganaki was very thin and sitting in a puddle of oil. Chicken kabobs were lacking flavor but cooked perfect. Service was great.

  • jenny m.TERRIBLE SERVICE. Go here only if you want to be ignored and not eat. We sat for 25 minutes watching waiters pretend not to see us before we finally walked out. Go down the street to Pegasus instead.

  • Chicago TribuneThis open courtyard at this Greektown mainstay was renovated recently, adding a retractable roof over the 150-seat space, so that sudden sprinkles don't cause chaos.
