Exceptionally good!

Hello Nick,My husband & I have been eating at your restaurant for about 22 years and I usually order the same thing of Spanokopita dinner and my husband always orders Kotopoulo chicken. Last night the food tasted exceptionally good! So I told the waitress this and she told me you have a new cook! Well this cook has made the food taste even better!Again I ate Spanokopita which this time was cooked/browned on top more, the potatoes so good and green beans so good!Kind regards,Sheryin

Thanks so much for the great review Sheryin and for being a patron of Athens Market for so many years! - Nick


Booming with taste and environment was so clean! Felt like one of the family! We will defiantly be returning soon! This place is a hidden gem!

Thanks Stacie! So glad you enjoyed your experience at our Greek restaurant. - Nick

Highly recommend

This is one of our favorite places to eat in the San Diego area, and we highly recommend this restaurant.

Moussaka!!!! So good!!!

We have had the pleasure of eating at Athens Market Cafe for years. We have had them cater several times for us too. The food and service is excellent.

Today my husband stopped in for a gyros and brought me home some Moussaka. If you have steered clear of this lesser known food item, you have been missing out! I love this stuff!!! It's so yummy. Not something you can get just anywhere.

And my husband was raving about the gyros. I said it's just gyros! He says, "It's so much better than any other I have had! The meat, the way they prepare the pita, it was just so good!"

Thanks glad that both you and your husband are fans of Athens Market Cafe! - Nick

Treated like family

Great food, even better staff. Every time I go I feel like I am being treated like family.

Definitely coming back

I came here for the first time with my boyfriend and his mom and we all enjoyed our experience here. Our server was amazing! She was hilarious, attentive, and an overall joy. She made sure our table was constantly stocked and filled with drinks bread, which is a HUGE deal in my book since empty drinks is one of my pet peeves. I ordered the gyro sandwich with the lentil soup, my boyfriend ordered the gyro plate, and his mom ordered the beef souvlaki. We ordered the saganaki as our appetizer as well. We all enjoyed our food. Their food here is fresh and their lentil soup is very delicious! I wish I remembered our server's name because she was awesome. Great food, great service, definitely coming back whenever I'm around this area again!

A gem of a place... I did not know of this gem is beyond me! Fantastic service by Nichole who was just helping for the night & food that we are still talking about a week later! The Titpita were outstanding, Pastitso fantastic & huge portions, Keftedes like Yia Yia used to make & the spaghetti with Menzithra outstanding! Can't wait to go back!!!! Now I'm hungry!!!

Great for large groups

I highly recommend Greek Athens market for any special occasion you may have to celebrate. They have a separate dining room that is perfect to hold about 50 people for a lunch or dinner and the atmosphere is cozy and intimate. I was having trouble deciding where to have a memorial service for my mom, and Nick provided the perfect place and it turned out better than I imagined. Nick and his staff set up the seating arrangements so nice, and had extra tables and easels provided for me to use for my photos and memorials, and a TV for my DVD slideshow.

He had wonderful appetizers set up and people mingled for about an hour before we sat down to a delicious lunch. The service for the entire afternoon was perfect. The food server was always there refilling people drinks and she also knew when not to interrupt when people were speaking for the eulogy and other speeches. The food was served promptly and picked up as people were done, and then out came some beautiful fruit platters and Greek cookies to nibble on for the rest of the time while people were sitting.

It was a perfect afternoon and the service Nick and his staff provided made my event so smooth I didn't have to worry about anything. They were already ahead of me on everything that needed to be done throughout the afternoon. I didn't even have to worry about resetting the slide show as Nick was aware of it and kept it looping and turned the volume up or down depending on the noise level of the crowd. He was very attentive to what was going on and responded to anything that needed attention. It was a perfect luncheon for the celebration of my mom's life and I again highly recommend this restaurant for any type of special event.

Catered engagement party

We had Athens cater our daughter's engagement party yesterday. The Greek salad looked amazing and was so colorful. The Spanakopita and Gyros were tops on the list and lots of people asked where we ordered the food. It was so easy and convenient to do business with you. You may get some phone calls soon. I am looking forward to ordering with you again one day - thank you!!

Love the food...

Love the food. The gyro and chicken salad are the best. The saganaki is a great entertaining way to start a meal.

Thanks for your review Vikki! Glad you enjoyed your food and were also entertained. - Nick
