There is so much to love about this restaurant. I felt like I was transported back to the Greek islands with the decor and music and little details like the salt, the artwork and of course the convincing authentic Greek accents of the staff.

The hero though is the food. It's SO good and having grown up with a mother that cooked beautifully, aunts that did the same, it's very hard to find an authentic Greek kitchen in a restaurant. Souvlaki GR Kouzina has that in spades.

This was our third visit in four weeks, and we'll be coming back.

We’ve been to this Souvlaki GR several times since it opened and find the food consistently fresh and well-prepared. We especially enjoy the appetizers, salads and desserts! The waitstaff was attentive and reservations honored. We will be back!

Went there for the second time and was so disappointed this time. Everything we ordered was very sad. We had the mixed grill for 38.00 and it was zapped to warm it up and doused with oregano and oil. The spreads were ok but not as good as the last time. The restaurant was very quiet so I have to say if you go it has to be busy so the food is cooked to order and fresh.

This place is amazing. Fantastic food, charming and hospitable service and it feels just like an outdoor taverna on a Greek island. Not to mention for mid-town Manhattan, the cost is quite reasonable. Special mention for the lamb chops, the octopus and the loukoumades. Try it - you won’t be disappointed.

If you look for good Greek food and hospitality, come here. Neighbourhood little establishment, has the look and feel of the true overseas locations, but yet, food meets well the expectations. The round metal tables are kind of small if you your party is of more than two persons, but for larger parties they have larger tables too, so it's alright. The octopus was tender and well cooked, moussaka had the all it takes to satisfy your appetite, including the generous size. We will go back.

Food is very good and the people that run the restaurant are super nice. The decor made me think I had been transplanted to a Greek island. It was an enjoyable and fun place. Highly recommend. Inexpensive.

Authentic food and experience, you may feel like you’re in Greece. Prices are very reasonable. I recommend the lamb chops and Greek salads. The tables and chairs aren’t the most comfortable but other than that it’s a good choice to dine if you’re in the midtown east area.

I have been to each of the Souvlaki GR locations and have never been disappointed. Coming from a Greek family to hear familiar music, be welcomed by staff and enjoy a wonderful meal what more can I ask for ? A plane ticket to the actual Mykonos!!
