I had seen Chef Loi on television so was very excited to experience her food in person. It did not disappoint! We came for a birthday lunch and were greeted very warmly. You start with warm toasted pita and delicious feta spread all complimentary. We shared two appetizers for a light lunch, both with generous portions. The first was artichoke hearts with peas in dill, very flavorful and healthy also quite filling. Then we had the light, airy stuffed grape leaves served warm. The Greek chardonnay was a perfect pairing as suggested by our server Alex. We finished with a chocolate cake and Greek yogurt with rich, dark honey. I would return in a heartbeat!

This is the best restaurant in NYC serving food from Greece. It is also one of the best restaurants in the city, period. If you've ever been to Greece and loved the food, go here; if you haven't here's the place to come to love it. Everything is as fresh and flavorful as we get at the seaside.

Lobster orzo dish was overcooked - orzo was mushy, lobster rubbery. Could be because it was Valentines Day. Service was very good.

We try to have dinner T Loi Estiatorio whenever we are in Manhattan. This time we were there on Valentines Day. For such a busy night we had our usual fabulous experience. The Valentines Day menu was more limited than the usual menu, but it had something for everyone. The food was excellent, and the service was attentive and were not rushed. Maria Loi went from table to table greeting guests and being her usual upbeat and fun self. We had a lovely evening!

I also just received an email from Loi that they are willing to deliver given the COVID-19 issue. Bravo Loi Estiatorio!

We were visiting NYC and by luck found this restaurant. It was outstanding, fresh, clean and defined flavors. Services was beyond outstanding, and the food was top notch. The chef and owner came by and introduce herself, charming, elegant and artsy looking lady. She was welcoming and that top the experience. I met my sister there that lives in NYC and this was one of the many highlights on this trip. I recommended 100% it won't disappoint! ahhh and the warm little corn biscuits with fresh olive oil! Just charming and delicious!

Great ambiance and service. Went for dinner before a show so we were a bit limited on time and were unable to get the full experience. Certainly looking forward to visiting again with an open evening ahead.

We love dining here. The entire staff is very attentive and Loi, herself, is very available and hospitable! What a treat! Our pre-fixe lunch was most delightful and lovely wine to accompany the meal. We North Carolinians are thrilled to stay just a block away from this fabulous restaurant! We will be back soon!

The food was outstanding and, in Mediterranean diet fashion, very healthy. Our fish was super fresh and tasty. You could make a whole meal out of the appetizers alone. Our waitress was lovely and friendly and attentive without being overbearing. By the way, you should try the Greek wines that they serve! They were excellent. I look forward to returning in the near future! That being said, this is not a restaurant for those on on tight budget.

Everything here is great. I usually do not like branzino or lamb but they are fantastic here.
My favorites besides the branzino and Lamb are: Calamari, Cod, lemon potato and the dessert yogurt.

お勧めのお料理:ブランジーノ、ラムシャック、コッドの包み焼。カラマリ(アペタイザー)、レモンポテト(アペタイザー)&ヨーグルト(デザート)。
ラムは普段、ラムの独特の臭いがきらいな人でも楽しめます。是非、一度試してみて下さい。

Being a native New Yorker, I can truly say that Loi is not just a restaurant, it is an experience that is unmatched by any of its competitors. Chef Maria is absolutely fabulous, her staff are extremely accommodating and professional, the menu is so exquisitely curated that you can taste the love and passion in every dish.
