The Greek on Main
Amazing as usual!!!!! Everything was delicious!!
Good food. Great service. Lobster gyro is only a decent value for the price.
We had lunch here last Spring and had been meaning to return to try out dinner; we were not disappointed. Mussels, Feta in pastry cherry sauce for appetizers; Swordfish, Spicy Lentils w Orzo for main; and Orange cake, yogurt for dessert - all just great.
Our server, Maggie, was prompt and attentive and the Hostess and Chef were always around checking on everything and checking in with everybody.
This place is 1/2 hour from our house but we will be back - I don’t know of any better Greek restaurant within 50 miles of us (Far Hills) that’s nearly as good.
Metuchen can be a challenge for parking but once I got my bearings that got sorted out too.
Mos Def worth a try!
Our second time here. Incredible food, service is outstanding and atmosphere is welcoming. The oil for the bread is the best anywhere. Greek ingredients give it a special flavor. Food is excellent from lamb chops to grilled prawns.
Great food and service every time we stop by!
Thursday night music was nice and did not interrupt conversation. Excellent food and service as always. The person with me was a first-timer to Greek on Main! He will be back :-)
Amazing experience! Best Greek food!
The grilled octopus appetizer and the goat cheese and fig flatbread were outstanding. Our service was very good and the entrees were enjoyed by all, with one exception. My friend thought her scallops were a little over cooked and tough. I will definitely revisit and try more of the menu. I really enjoyed my whole grilled fish!
Food took too long to arrive, and no offer of bread or olives to assuage our hunger.
The food was good, except the lamb chops left something to be desired.
We must have had a fairly new server. His attention level was not there. He did not really know the product. It took him quite a while to clear the table and the restaurant was not that busy. He had one other table. this is not acceptable. We have been there before and the wait staff was much better on a crowded night.
But as I said the food was good.
Great food and service! We'll be back! Authentic and delicious Greek food. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to feiends!
This was the most delicious Bronzino I ever ate. The food and service were magic. I'd go back in a heartbeat. The quality of the food was worth the money.
Waitress made it fun
Lovely and authentic Greek restaurant in downtown Metuchen. Our reservations were honored and we were seated immediately. Good food ( recommend the Bronzino) and very courteous waitstaff. It did get packed for dinner on Saturday evening and that contributed to more uneven service toward the end, however, we would most certainly go back, and we live forty-five minutes away.
I ordered the special which was Sole. It tasted gummy and rubbery. It looked like they took old bits of fish and pasted it together. It was entirely inedible and unappetizing. Had I eaten it and after one bite which I spit out, I knew I would wind up in the ER. I knew it was impossible for me to take the chance and eat this crud. So....my partner sat and ate his meal which was average seafood fare and I sat there another 30 minutes watching him eat his not so delectable meal. Finally, my second choice arrived. The chicken with some type of Greek pasta. It was ok. At least, it was edible. The waiter was not that interested in our poor experience at your restaurant but at least he was polite. We will not be returning anytime soon.
Very quiet on a Wed night. The food was excellent. Feta in Phyllo was an excellent appetizer.
Staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We weren’t rushed.
Great little Greek restaurant! Shared a few appetizers with a coworker for lunch... Delicious octopus, spanikopita and saganaki! Will remember this when in the area again!
Loved the relaxed atmosphere. The music was low. We were not rushed and the servers were very attentive to our needs. Food was very good. We had a great experience and will come back.
This was a return trip to the restaurant. we bought another couple with us who were reluctant to try a Greek restaurant. As always the food was again fabulous. Our friends were more than delighted and stated they would be back often. During this visit I decided not to get my usual dishes and try something different. The result was just as good as my previous visits - OUTSTANDING!! All 4 of us had Great meals and a superb time. I will continue coming back and cannot say enough about this restaurant.
Date night with wife.
Our entrees were very good. Bread was not - kind of hard and stale. Waiter was respectful but understaffing made it difficult for him to get to us and accommodate our needs in a timely fashion. Busboy was too eager to do his job, and kept trying to take away our plates and glasses before we were done. We skipped dessert because we didn’t want to wait another hour and our water was taken away too soon. Perhaps it was just a bad day, but we don’t have a desire to return.
Love this restaurant! The food is always delicious and top quality!
Everything was very good the only think I was a little disappointed in was the desert I found the baklava was a little hard . The places I have had it before it was soft and had a lot of honey, otherwise The service was great and the food was delicious.
We did not know that there was music on Thursday nights. Music and singing was entertaining but way too loud for dinner! Could hardly hear each other at the dinner table. Background music would have been nice but this was concert Loud!
We loved the food and service, and will definitely be returning! We even brought our toddler and weren’t sure if she’d enjoy the cuisine but she did great.
A very enjoyable evening from beginning to end. Thanks,
We had an absolutely wonderful dinner. We'll definitely be coming back to try more of this amazing food. Our server was Andrew and he was very personable, very helpful with the menu and made our dining experience very pleasant. We highly recommend this establishment.
As being Greek myself (my husband is not) we both enjoyed our food. Very tasty. Greek music was playing in the background which made the atmosphere even better. Thank you.
Service and food was excellent but tipping should be left to customers. Last time when I visited it was not automatic. But this time they added 20% automatically. That means they do not care what customers may feel. As I said service was very good but as example they forgot to return the credit card and I had to walk and ask for it.
Enjoyed the food and music !!!
Liked the calamari, swordfish - maybe need some spicyness added 😀
Was there with two friends, all three of our meals were so fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back!!
Our second time, and it won't be our last. Thoroughly enjoyed our fish - whole, fileted Red Snapper and Branzino. The appetizer of shellfish in broth was as good as our server suggested and the desserts of flourless chocolate cake and custard in phyllo were delicious!
There was a cranky baby in the house, but once we got past the crying we thoroughly enjoyed our time.
Food is always delicious!!! Teddy hosts a wonderful dining experience.
The seafood dishes were all amazing. The Greek cheeses are so delicious and the salads are great. The squid ink pasta with great prawns were good but the prawns were a little old and dry for our taste. Overall, a great restaurant for family and friends.
I liked the ambiance and Erin was great. Bread served was not good. Mussels with clams was great. But entrees we had not really great. I love Greek food but this failed to meet expectations
Great food. Our go to place on Saturday night. Staff very friendly. Never an issue
Amazing as usual!! Went for Greek night on Thursday the live music was awesome not too loud just perfect!!!
It just gets better and better every time!!
One of the best places to go in the new "Destination Town" of Metuchen.
Lovely, little BYO bistro. Good variety and selection of food.
