    We are regular customers to Apollonia restaurant. Me being a Greek I tried a number of GR restaurants in the city and Apollonia is probably my No. 1. Not only the service is excellent and the place is very nice but also the food tastes and feels home made. I recommend it 100%

    We had a wonderful meal as always at Apollonia, service is always very friendly, the restaurant has a lovely ambience....when it's not too busy. Unfortunately, the acoustics of the relatively small space are terrible and as the restaurant fills up, it becomes so noisy, it's hard to hear your dinner companions....which of course means everyone talks louder and it becomes more and more noisy. We love the food but can't cope with the noise and regrettably may well order takeaway in future.

    Service good, restaurant noisy. Prawns were cooked perfectly. Rice was good. Potatoes and pita lacked freshness. Roast vegetables were uninspired. Balsamic dip had barely enough balsamic vinegar to taste it. Overall quantity on entree plate was neither abundant nor filling.

    We had an excellent dinner before going to a play on Granville Island. We told our waiter and had no problem meeting our deadline. For food we ordered: seafood linguine (seafood was cooked to perfection), roasted lamb was tasty and apollonia platter was delicious - plenty for 2 people. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We are returning customers after a nearly 5 year absence. The new decor is restful and attractive. The servers were as personable as they were before and the food as tasty as before. I always loved the simplicity of their food which to me means no additives. This remains so and we thoroughly enjoyed being back.

    My favourite meal the Greek Platter for 1 was no longer on the menu. I was so disappointed. I had the Moussaka and it has changed. The zucchini was not cooked (crunchy) and the meat sauce had too much tomato. The Calamari was excellent and so was the service.

    A recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. A nicely designed menu, not the usual 3 page every food imaginable. Good selection of wines that are well priced. Food was excellent, from the grilled calamari, the moussaka, 2 different lamb dishes. Excellent meals, great service! Local crowd and a well spaced sitting arrangement. Highly recommend.

    This is the first time I've actually left a review on a restaurant before because I'm usually pretty lazy but I was really disappointed with this restaurant. I'm a huge foodie and have been to like almost all Greek restaurants in Vancouver and this was my least pleasurable experience. 1. The portions were tiny relative to the price you pay 2. My table ordered the Greek Spread, calamari, roast lamb, the prawns, and souvlaki and honestly nothing tasted that good. I thought the lamb was really underseasoned. In addition, Ive never seen a Greek restaurant not come with rice and a Greek salad with roast lamb before 3. The value was not it. It was way too overpriced for what you pay for. 4. When asking for wine recommendations, the server specifically chose the most expensive wine (he said, "this is our most expensive wine, it tastes amazing") and honestly it was not good at all 5. Their happy hour was only like $1-2 dollars off? Whereas most other places is like 50% off. 6. The pita isn't bottomless and I literally bought the same ones from Costco last week. 7. The spreads from the appetizer was so odd? Like it didn't taste authentic or good The vibe was really nice and the location was nice too, but was really disappointed in my meal.

    Have been visiting restaurant for many years, was one of my favourites. Yesterday’s meal was not up to their usual standard. In Particular the portions have almost halved in size, Specifically the Greek salad. Modifying a souvlaki dinner for no potatoes and rice for greek salad with skewer was bare bone minimal…. Very poor value. Lamb shank dinner also shrinking in size , but tasty. Service was excellent however. Two meals dining in and two meals for takeout … identical as described cost $148.00 … last nights experience was not the best.
