    We love Loi. The greeting by Nicole the matre'd is always warm and welcoming. The breads and dip served before ordering are delicious. We had the moussaka and the branzino and both were outstanding. Maria Loi, chef and owner, were not there this time but that didn't alter the quality and service of the restaurant. We would recomend Loi without hesitation.

    We were spending the weekend in the city together with my sister in law. The sea bass was perfection along with the seasonal vegetables. The Greek wines were delicious as well. Great atmosphere. Also being Greek myself, it was a joy to speak with the owner and wait staff in Greek. They were all so hospitable. I felt at home and so welcomed. Nicola was delightful to speak with as well. Will definitely plan to come back. “Filoxenia” at its best. ❤️

    I loved Loi Estiatorio! I wanted to arrange a special lunch with a friend who is vegan and has gluten free requirements. I love Greek food, so I searched for a Greek restaurant near my hotel who might cater to her needs. Loi Estiatorio was definitely the best choice! We had a fantastic lunch - the food was not only delicious but healthy, the service was impeccable and friendly, and the ambiance is just what I wanted - small and cozy, not too loud. We had the beet salad, bean salad, grape leaves, and (for me only) the spinach pie, and we shared all. We ended our lunch with a mint tea. All dishes were made to perfection. I love that there is no deep frying, no butter, and yet the food was just as tasty as you would expect. The next time I find myself in NYC, I will definitely return to Loi Estiatorio.

    The experience was very good, just what I hoped for. My reservation was ready and they acknowledged it was made through OpenTable. The staff actually spoke Greek and came over to speak to my husband and me. The food was authentically Greek and very fresh. The quantity was perfect and the background music was nostalgic, what I’ve heard played in my husband’s parents home from the 1960’s and seventies. We chose from the specials menu and also from the regular menu.

    From the moment we arrived for our reservation we were made to feel welcome and appreciated. The host stopped by here and there to check in, offer suggestions, and tell us about Ms Loi and her philosophy. As to the food, let me simply say that Athens was the last time I had such thoroughly satisfying Greek food. Every menu item was perfect and left us eager to try others. What began as a pre-ballet dinner restaurant is now a destination.

    I wanted to love this place but was extremely underwhelmed. I’ve had amazing Greek food for less than half of what I spent here. Even the chocolate cake at the end (impossible for me not to love) had me shrugging my shoulders.

    Four person business lunch. Our branzino lunch special was delicious although expensive. Wine bottles also are expensive. Be careful as our waiter chose a bottle for us without pointing out the menu price. Waiter also rushed us and seemed a little inexperienced.

    Have dined here many times in the past. This time was not very good. Village salad was great as usual, wine recommendations from the server was excellent ( bought wine not listed on the menu) but he chicken dish was awful and the lemon potatoes really mushy… will give it another try when we come back to the city. could have been an off night….

    The branzino is excellent - just grilled with olive oil which lets the flavor of the fish shine. We always enjoy the stuffed grape leaves as an appetizer and the desserts are excellent - youdurt with honey and nuts, chocolate cake snd baklava. The Greek wine they recommended for the fish really complemented it.
