    The food was great (as always) our server was great, but we were seated in the side room with fluorescent lighting. When asked if we could be seated in one of the many empty tables in the main dining room, the waitress was less than accommodating and borderline rude - thus the 4 stars.

    We have been here several time. Food is great and the service is quick and attentive. Only downside is when the windows and skylights are closed in bad weather it is very loud. But we go for the food and wine, which is what will bring us back.

    Returned to Athena for the first time in quite some time. It really is a terrific Greek destination. Lunch was terrific, especially nice in the bright, airy space on a sunny spring day. You could stay all day. Reminded me of lunch in Greece (or Spain or Italy)--unhurried, relaxing, indulgent.

    Treating out-of-town friends to a classic Greek dinner that was great in every respect. The son of my guest will be attending Rush Medical School and he will remember his first meal in Chicago thanks to Athena’s .

    A great dining experience, wonderful service, good food, reasonable price, cheery atmosphere and love the complimentary valet parking. We were with people we had not seen in a long time and we felt comfortable lingering as long as we wanted. Thank you and we will definitely return.
