Anatoli Souvlaki was opened by Helen & Thomas in the spring of 1984. They had a dream of combining the food of Greece with great service to add some Mediterranean style to the North Vancouver restaurant selection. They opened in the sleepy neighbourhood of lower Lonsdale and lived above the restaurant to ensure the quality and service. They were able to create a North Vancouver staple, a successful thriving restaurant based on faithful patrons and a reputation that has been passed through generations.

    Waitress was over-occupied with other table - we were essentially ignored. Forgot appetizers, so 30 minutes after ordering we reminded her. Mains were tasteless, and had the consistency of being under a heatlamp for too long - especially bad seeing as it was souvlaki, and you'd expect the 'best of the best' seeing as souvlaki is in the name of the actual establishment. Clearly, it was a busy Friday night, but I've been going there for years and the dishes we ordered were not that complicated to prepare.

    Excellent food and very large portions. Expect to take some home or leave feeling very full. The seating was a little crowded, so the noise level was high from the parties around us. This makes it challenging for an intimate dinner, but manageable. We had to shoot a little sometimes in order to talk. The staff are friendly, the drinks are delicious, and overall it’s a favorite place to go in Lolo.

    The only issue we had was by the time we sat down and somebody came to give us a menu was 10 minutes and when we ordered our drinks that was probably another 15 minutes. We end up ordering our appetizers and main course the same time in fear it was gonna take a long time other than that everything was great. Food was awesome.

    $27 for a two inch square of lamb is ridiculous! I mean, why bother? The entire silver container on the plate should be filled with lamb......not a carb. The carbohydrate should be on the side with the Greek salad. Servers behaved like robots......maybe they were!...lol... Absolutely no empathy. "How's your day been" as she led people to their tables. No originality, No creativity. The meals took forever and were brought out by some 13 year old kid.....who was clearly lost. There is certainly better value for money in the city. Never again!

    Overall our experience was great. Our server was amazing and gave us some great food recommendations. The appetizer portions were much smaller than I had expected. The dips are really small. The mixed drinks from the menu are definitely not worth it. Very small and very expensive. Good selection of wine. The entrees are pricey but worth it. We won’t rush to go back, but we will definitely go back.

    I always enjoy eating at Anatoli Souvlaki. The food is good, the servers are always pleasant, and I enjoy eating outside during the summer months. Inside is very atmospheric in the cooler temps, too. My only suggestion is not to fill the Greek Salad with green pepper. Limiting yourselves to cucumbers and tomatoes and some onion would taste much better.

    Work dinner reserved for 4.45 pm but the table was not ready for us. Waited at entrance quite uncomfortably. Eventually placed right next to the bathroom which should not have been the case for a reservation. Meals delivered incorrectly to guests, then switched around more than 15 minutes later, which is quite unacceptable. Happy hour menu not offered.

    This is a lovely restaurant with a lovely menu. I had the spanakopita dinner which was cooked really well with lots of flavour. I also shared the calamari with my friend but found it a bit chewy. However overall all the food was good. My friend had the lamb shank and said it was really good. I would come back. It is also in a lovely part of North Vancouver with access to the shipyards just across the road.

    This use to be our family’s favourite restaurant however, we will never dine here again. Not sure if there is new ownership or what? First our waitress was the worse we’ve ever had anywhere. We literally had to track her down to get any service. Food was over cooked and not tasty at all. Very disappointing!

    The waitress did nit check on us at all. I asked for my lamb chops to get cooked medium rare but it was medium well and it was dry. She wasn’t around at all until she asked if we want out bill. Not happy with the service or the food.

    We have been here many times but first visit since last October. The souvlaki ( chicken and lamb) was over marinated and overcooked. The Greek salad we are used to was tomato light and loaded with cucumbers. Saganaki (sp) my favorite was barely hot enough and within minutes was a brick. Our server was great! And while new and a few mistakes made remedied they quickly and courteously. Really lovely young lady. Service and atmosphere excellent but food was disappointing Would not recommend this go round but would have before.
