The server lacked appropriate restaurant etiquette. He reached across us to remove plates. While this is not a fancy restaurant the staff should be properly trained.
The good was overly laden with garlic. This source should be used to enhance dishes not overpowering then!

We are never disappointed- tonight once again we had excellent Greek food, wonderful service by Katarina, and were relaxed because of the careful Covid safety precautions. The lamb chops and lamb souvlaki are outstanding. We appreciate the work that goes into consistent quality, especially in the past two years. Thanks to Polly and her staff.

If you want an authentic family style Greek experience in a nice ambience this is the place!
I liked the thoughtful design choices of the clean interior. And the food was absolutely delicious and it transported me back to our trip to Greece several years ago. The Moussaka is the best I’ve had. And the calamari and prawns were excellent. Highly recommend it!

One of the best dining experiences we have had. Especially when keeping up with the ever changing PHO and all, the staff made us feel comfortable, safe, and at home. Such a great atmosphere, food was divine where there were nothing left behind, and drinks were unique and interchangeable if need be. Staff are a great a source for recommendations. Our server was a gem, his service alone is enough reason to go back!

Very friendly staff. Ordered the roast lamb -it was delicious. Busy , but to be expected for the last Saturday before Christmas. Have ordered take always before from here and always delicious. But this was the first time we dined in the restaurant-will definitely return.

If you want to dine at a family run business, this is a gem! We arrived from Toronto to visit our daughters and decided to go for dinner. We had some amazing dips and Greek specialities....the food was great, waitress was outstanding and the atmosphere was quaint and cozy..perfect for a special dinner during the holidays! I will definately return in the future. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Fantastic experience. This was our first time at Apollonia and we will definitely be back. It was some of the best Greek Food I have ever had. The restaurant is quaint with good social distancing. They were doing a steady stream of take out which is always a good sign.

Such a cute spot! Pass it all the time and finally made a reservation! Food and service was amazing! It was a little loud for my liking but settled down as the evening went on after a few big tables left. 100 percent will be going back!

The on line booking form asked the occasion, to which we said anniversary. The staff acknowledged this when we arrived however nothing special was done so what is the point of asking?

Small but quaint place to eat. Had the roast lamb and chef platter. Roast lamb was nice and not too greasy. Chef platter had lamb and chicken (both very tender and flavourful). Kalamari was huge and lightly battered - very nice. Price is average, ambience nice, service was nice. Will be back for sure.

The staff seemed rushed and a little overwhelmed. We arrived and were almost shoved back towards the door and shut behind a curtain while they “prepared our table”. The staff were then polite but abrupt, making our experience feel a touch harried. The food was however enjoyable.

Have dined at Apollonia several times, love that it is a neighborhood restaurant, the ambience is quite nice, the food and service is good. Was having dinner with a friend and we both suggested this restaurant, having dined there before.

Our Server was very pleasant, and our food was tasty. Two things that did stand out this time was, it was extremely hot in the restaurant, in fact, almost unbearable, making it somewhat uncomfortable to dine and enjoy our visit and food. As well, it seemed the portions were smaller.

Good was okay, but portion size was quite small. I had ordered the feta and olives for a starter, at 14 dollars, there was three slivers of feta and 5 olives, and two cherry tomatoes cut in half

The souvlaki plates were tasty, but only had one skewer per plate and no pita, so price aside, not the best value

We also waited 40 minutes outside in the rain for our table. We had a reservation for 7 pm, and the server kept updating us that it would only be ‘5 more minutes’. Apparently there were tables that came late and over stayed the reservation time, meaning our table wasn’t ready at 7.

I understand the situation, however we could have gone and came back or went somewhere else instead of waiting in the rain. We had no apologies or explanation from the management

When finally seated service was quick, and food came out fast.

Made reservations for 715- you had to wait outside and someone would come to take your name etc. No one came out for about 10 minutes and people were just standing around. I had to ask if people waiting had been helped yet. Someone came out and I told them I had reservations and he said he would look into and never came back. Another person came out and this couple told him they had reservations as well and he would get their table ready. The person came out and the couple was nice enough to mention I was there first and should be seated first. They aren’t very organized but once we got inside to our table it was good.
