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.

The restaurant staff are all welcoming and the COVID-19 measures well managed. I particularly enjoyed the ribs that are tasty, fairly lean and cooked with herbs rather than sweet sticky BBQ sauce. The deep fried calamari we shared is nice and crispy. Unlike some Greek restaurants the entrees came with a modest serving of lemon roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables and no rice. Appollonia likely to be one of my go-tos.

Everything was perfect. Service, and food was awesome. Cozy and warm ambiance. My only complaint was that when we were asked to show our ID for Covid vaccinations. I had both my vaccination scan code and passport on my iPhone. Th person greeting us said that hard copies of ID ( drivers licence ) or passport must be hard copies. My husband and I walked to dinner from our condo and I only had my phone, not my purse. This might be a discussion to have with management and changing as a policy. We’d definitely go back.

The food was high quality, traditionally prepared and served by diligent, polite people. A terrific place to dine especially if you are local, but keeping in mind that other places may offer more creative options.

We were desperate for vegetables…because even though a restaurant advertises as “vegetarian”…they usually don’t have a lot of veggies. We made a point to get the spinach and the grilled zucchini at Apollonian along with the bread and spreads, Kalamari, mussels and dessert. Our server was an absolute delight. The food was delicious.

Excellent Greek spot! Servers were kind and attentive. We had spanakopita, tzatziki and pita, grilled kalamari, fried kalamari, lamb shoulder, moussaka, and pork chops. I highly recommend the grilled kalamari, although everything we had was delicious. We loved how fresh the pita was. The restaurant itself is quiet and low-key, the perfect ambiance to celebrate my mom's birthday.
