    Absolutely fantastic evening. Service was wonderful. They made us feel very special, and took very good care of us. The food and drinks are great, and well priced for their exceptional quality. Would recommend to anyone who likes well crafted shared plates.

    They only have high seating, but it's not a problem. The food is great, tasty and flavourful. We tried the Truffle Koulouri & Eggs, the Patates Arnaki and the Spanakopita Florentine. Not a large portion but they are all very good! The latte is also good. It's an energetic environment (meaning it's not very quiet), so if you are looking for a place to chat or discuss serious stuff - maybe not for you. But I went with friends so it worked for us! Overall I'll recommend it!

    It was good! I had the green mountain tea and my friend had the pancakes from the brunch menu. I ordered the eggs with the truffle shavings but had trouble digesting the truffles afterwards (a lot of burping), not sure how authentic the truffles were. Would go back and try another item on the menu in the future.

    the gnocchi is a must try! but honestly it was all so good. the lamb fell off the bone. the feta with honey was the perfect blend of sweet and savory. they have a great deal for drinks and we enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine at half price. will definitely be back!

    Great food and great service. We went on a Wednesday and they had half price on all bottles of wine which was a nice surprise. Very tapas style sharing of small plates. It’s cozy and the kitchen is open right in the middle for you to watch which was cool.

    Amazing experience!! The overall atmosphere of Koukla is warm and inviting, while giving a nod to traditional Greek taverns. The ambience is charming for special dates or to catch up with friends around intentionally designed tables to converse with your whole party. The food is delicious with every bite and a wonderful variety for everyone to try and share! All the staff provide wonderful and attentive service. Tasty drinks, genuine staff, mouth watering food and an evening to remember! One of the best meals I’ve had in a while that provides each dinner with new bites and flavours to explore!!

    Servers didn't inform us that they would be needing the table back by a certain time. We were asked if we could "Down our drinks?" and eat really fast so that we could be out by a certain time. Food and drink was great but I don't think I'll be back because of this treatment.

    Food and drinks were very good. The seats were too close together at the bar. Other than the bartenders' - the staff was not welcoming. The 1.5 hour time limit is not enough for a first time person to experience the venue. There is a better way to tell someone that the next reservation is due than the way it was handled. Talking to the other staff about us that we had to go soon was not the proper way to do it. In the service industry you must always be on point - you never know who is coming in. As a writer of a private food blog/email unfortunately anyone who receives my reports are not going to be too excited about visiting Koukla.

    We were seated promptly and service was really good. Our server offered wine and food suggestions and we followed along enjoying everything offered up. One thing I would say is that the fried eggplant tasted greasy and the oil a bit stale. Still a good choice - I think I is a crowd pleasure. I would have given this experience a 5 star review otherwise.
