A night to be remembered! The restaurant itself is gorgeous. The food matched the aesthetics. We had tzatziki, spanakopita, tomato salad and lamb chops. Every dish was delicious. Our hostess Claire made our night very memorable with her attention. The cherry on top was finding out she treated us the wine as we were celebrating our 21st anniversary. What a generous gesture! That’s hospitality at its finest. Thank you Claire! Can’t wait to come back once the dining restrictions are lifted.

If you read all the other reviews on this restaurant, they are all true. Our sever was nice and it was his second day, so we just sat back and enjoyed the evening. Don’t go here if you’re in a rush.

Manager and team do not communicate affectively.

Resulting in my fiancé’s credit card information paying for another bill. Upon my inquiring the manager was very combative and argumentative.

My fiancé wanted to surprise my family and I by calling in to pay for our dinner. Instead, we had to stay around for another 30 mins to wait for the manager to figure out what happened (which he didn’t) and I ended up paying in cash.

I called the manager yesterday after seeing the charge on my fiancé’s card, and he said he would issue the refund immediately. It’s been over 48 hours and it has still not been posted and we have not had an email reply from them at all.

Completely unprofessional.

We came here with the kids to try the DOV menu. But we ended up ordering a leg of lamb platter with appies instead. The food was delicious and the lamb was cooked perfectly. Even our kids, aged 8 and 11, were asking for more. Then we were curious about the fish, so we ordered a fish platter as well. We had it baked with the sea salt. They brought the fish and cut it at our table. Since we had looked at the DOV menu initially, I had my eye on the Greek Donuts for dessert. Unfortunately, it wasn't on their regular dessert menu. Our server was kind and checked if we get it anyway. So we ordered that as well as the Bougatsa! We were beyond satisfied with our whole dinner experience!

I can't wait until COVID is over. I'd love to share a few platters with all of my family at Hydra!

Not worth it if you are looking for fine dining. We were seated very close to a server traffic area which was uncomfortable— someone was constantly moving behind me. Food was meh—nothing compared to other Mediterranean places we have tried. We were excited to try their dine out menu but was quite bland. Ambience was okay and our wait staff was nice.

I was so excited when I got the spot for 4 to this place because tiktok hypes it up, eventhough it was a very late dinner for us which is 20:15 on Valentines Day.

We got into the hotel entrance, took the elevator to the 2nd floor and checked in with the lady for my reservation. She guided us to our spot which is downstairs. While walking downstair, I was so stunned with the decor so I got even more excited. But then she put us to a spot which was very close to the stairs where servers kept walking around and to the door which was very cold. I dont know if they don't have any other better spots but it was a crappy spot for 4 asians. All white people there expect for us. I didnt feel welcome. I didnt feel special.

Another lady asked our reservation name again when we sat down. I was confuse why they asked again when the lady upstairs did already.

We sat down. We noticed all the tables had candles lit expect ours. No cutleries prepared. No nothing! Sat there for 10mins noone noticed us. A guy gave a menu threw it on the table, just in case we need it. (They have scan menu too) Didnt even say his name. We asked to lit the candle, no apoligies heard for leaving letting us sit on a dark table.

We wanted to try their valentines menu because of the obvious reason. Hello?! Its valentines.

We then tried to asked questions about the Valentines menu. Guess what? Out of stock! On the Valentines itself. Again, no sorry. Server wasnt friendly or didnt even try to explain the options we can get instead.

I was very disappointed! A very fancy resto with no manners at all.

We then decided to call gotham if they have a spot for us instead. I am happy that they have. We left the table. I dont think they even notice.

I am happy we left! We ate a better meal and got the service we deserved.

Our server was excellent and knew about all the different dishes. He suggested wonderful options and we were not disappointed.
The sommelier on duty was also excellent with a superb choice of wine to accompany our meal.
Just when I thought I was full, we HAD to try ALL three desserts... YUMMY!!!

Try the specials they are usually quite interesting and well priced. Had a huge platter for 2 with meat (lamb, steak, chicken and also the most delicious prawns) for $78 added a couple starters and had enough to bring home for a midnight snack.
Cocktail list is unique if you are into that. Not my thing, but, I appreciate the option 🤗

Although we found the restaurant upstairs was not operating, we were greeted and taken downstairs to the bar area to a nice table there. The food was very good and interesting along with some traditional Greek dishes. We especially enjoyed the octopus. Service was attentive.

A really nice lounge dinner or lunch place.

Lovely outing. Great service. I really like the shared plate type eating experience rather than individual meal/plates. Not only does it add to a community experience at your table, it also makes the meal a bit more cost effective (adds value).

Thanks for a great night:)
