Souvlaki GR offers a little taste of Mykonos in the heart of NYC. After an award-winning food truck and four years of continued success at our Lower East Side location, we have expanded to Midtown in order to continue providing New Yorkers with authentic Greek souvlaki. One step across our threshold, and we hope you"ll be transported to the cobblestone alleys of Mykonos and Santorini in order to enjoy our signature Souvlaki Pitas and other classic staples of Greek cuisine.

Grilled octopus,greekmeatballs,horitiki, chicken souvlaki, pastitsio,lamb chops, greek sausage, mixed grilled vegtables,and octopus stew, were all cooked to perfection. Greek salad enough for 2. Ozu was delicious and baklava to die for!
Great service, not rushed, accommodated food allergies as well. Busy but the kitchen was great in getting out our meals.

They sat us at the bar. The bar tables have poles in the middle of them, I now have bruises on my legs. If you make a reservation, you shouldn’t be seated at the bar. We ordered an appetizer dip. The waiter should have informed us that the same one came with our meal, we might have ordered/tried a different kind. Just an overall lack of caring and information. Won’t be going back.

The food was delicious. The ambiance was lovely, BUT the noise level was so loud we could not hear each other speak! Surely there must be some way to decrease the noise level.

I love this place. It’s not too pricey and all the food is right on. And I really like that it’s easy to eat with a group of people where some just want to graze or eat a light meal and others want to dig in to large dishes. The variety of options and price points on the menu is great for that. And it’s an obvious choice for family-style eating or shared plates. But it’s really loud and hectic. People (mostly restaurant staff) were constantly banging into my chair. I wish they could move to a larger, less hectic space. But, yes, totally recommended. Worth mentioning that the staff is Greek—they’ll leave you alone and let you eat and relax. Don’t be shy about flagging someone down to get what you need.

Great food! Really tasty. Quite expensive for what it is. The music is excessively loud. We asked for it to be turned down, which they did but the. The level just creeped back up again. I wouldn’t mind except for a table of 5 people we couldn’t even hear each other talk.

The food was delicious. Very authentic Greek food and a wonderful Greek island atmosphere to the restaurant. Think of feeling like you are in Mykonos in NYC. Excellent mojitos!

The hostess was very rude. They packed the restaurant with way too many tables. There is hardly room too move between tables. We left due to the rude treatment by the hostess and went to another restaurant.

Do not go there with children. They tried to sit me, my wife and my daughter at a table for two, with high chair being placed in the way of the entrance and were every water would have carried food over my daughter’s head. There was an empty table for 4 two tables away and the staff refused to offer this instead. Given the conditions, we had to leave and find food elsewhere. The worst part was the extreme arrogance of the front of the house that was thought that this was perfectly safe and comfortable.

We found this place close by the theater before going to see a show and we were glad we did! It’s a very cute place and the food is very good. We were really hungry when we got there and after getting a dip with pita and another appetizer we were almost full already before our meals even came. Couldn’t finish all the food between two of us, but it was delicious!

Souvlaki GR is my reliable place when in midtown. The pitas are my crack. So good can’t stop eating them! I was with two friend before a show we had the 3 dips with pita a Greek salad the grilled octopus and Patizzo. Not a crumb left on a plate. As always fabulous food. My only thing I tell people before we go is about how tight the space is. But everyone’s bring there never says anything side the food is that good

We are from the UK and spent 6 nights in New York. We visited here on our last night and it was BY FAR the best meal I ate and left me longing for more! I had the shrimp souvlaki pitta with feta, Greek fries and halloumi. The setting and staff were also lovely which made it a really special night. Thank you!
