Do not go if you have coupon!

Long story short. Me and my girlfriend brought a coupon from one of the website. We went to the restaurant and we were asked to wait 45min for a table. (Note that we told them we have a coupon) Then we waited by the door for our table. Few minutes later another couple came in and spoke to the owner, me and my girlfriend over heard that he told them to wait for 20min. Me and my girlfriend looked at each other, going what?!! Is it we had a coupon so we have to wait longer? We walked right out of the restaurant after that. Luckily we can refund our coupon or else we have to suffer thru the bad customer service!

Best meatballs I've had in years

Went here for an early Saturday dinner around 3:30, so the place was relatively unoccupied, with 3 other tables seated. Ordered the meatballs to start and a feta lamb dish. Fiancee ordered Avgolemono (chicken soup), Chicken Rosemary Pie, and Yiaourti (greek yogurt with figs). The meatballs were the best I've had in years. I also enjoyed the Avgolemono soup a lot, so much that I ended up having 3 spoonfuls, after only asking my fiance for one. She only found it ok, a little too creamy for her taste. The salad with the lamb dish was ok; typical greek salad. Both the Pie and Lamb were delicious. My only complaint with the lamb was that I asked for it medium, and the center pieces were a little closer to medium rare. The Yiaourti tasted like cheesecake with figs! Delicious but a little too much after such a filling meal. Had already overstuffed myself since the food tasted so good! Luckily, since it was Winterlicious, my fiancee's meal only came to about $20, mine was about $45. (Fountain drinks not refillable).

hmmmm

we had the hummus and kebabs. it was not such a great experience as we did not like the food. the service was alright although they were closing down and hurrying on getting us out. there was no one else in the place and its a really big place to be in alone. the decor is above par though. overall it was adequate but nothing I would go back for.

The hostesses at the front did not seem to know what they were doing as they forgot to seat us. The appetizers were good. The greek salad was made entirely with ice berg lettuce which was cheap. The drinks were way too strong; we couldn't finish them. The ice had fruit flies in it. At the bottom of our water and cocktail glasses were little flies. Gross. The souvlaki was okay - I've had better. We found that the meat was undercooked - there was lots of pink in the pork and some in the chicken. Our waiter didn't seem to know what was going on when we asked questions. I would not return as there are many better places to eat on the Danforth.

Since I'm a big fan of Greek cuisine, I frequently visit the Danforth (Greek town in Toronto) and have tried pretty much every restaurant on the strip. When ranking Greek restaurants, Ouzeri is right at the top of my list. The food is great and the prices are very affordable.

I live in the Greek village and this is one of my faves. Reasonably priced, the food is very tasty and fresh, service always friendly. Easy-going, relaxed atmosphere, I bring my family and friends. Appealing to young and old alike. Order a whack of appetizers and have a blast. Take your time and never feel rushed to leave. Just like Greece.

We attended Ouzeri to celebrate my birthday as well as the occasion of getting engaged here 10 years ago. I made a reservation months in advance, and we live an hour and a half away. When we arrived at the restaurant, we had to wait several minutes to even be acknowledged (there seemed to be no notice of the special occasion either). Our waiter seemed like he was being inconvenienced by us asking for drinks or appetizers. We had our two kids with us and they didn't even get food orders taken. The food itself was delicious when we finally were able to flag him to our table to order. We had to wait several times for him to come back to get drinks re-ordered and to get the bill. It was a bit of a shame for such a special occasion for us to be disregarded, but thankfully the company was good and food was great.

Overall it was an average dining experience. Went for Winterlicious. Food was fine, appetizer was cold. Server was friendly but not very attentive. Also charged us for extra pita bread which was pretty funny given that he didn't mention anything about it and just tacked it on. Probably wouldn't go back, but there are worst places to eat.

I had their lamb pastry when I went to taste of Danforth and it came out fresh from the oven.. this time it came out straight from the freezer to the oven and to my plate. Was extremely dry and tasted like frozen food. The food was edible. The service was okay. The appetizers were great and decently portioned. Will never go there again though.

Delicious food, nicely presented at a reasonable price: moussaka, grilled and fried calamari, avgolomeno soup. We had a New Year's Eve dinner with our two kids and friends. Very nice expierence; as usually (we live in the area and have been here before). Small complaint: too loud a music (greek style which adds to the ambience) but only to my ears. We'll be back.

We were here for New Year's Eve dinner, very crowded, buzzing, but we received a warm welcome and had great service. We all had "changes" to menu items and they were all handled perfectly and without attitude. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, even posed for my insta pic of him lighting the saganaki on fire! Their tzatziki is the best in town and the food is excellent. Fantastic value for your dollar! Great food, great service! We will return next time we are in Toronto!

The Mediterranean Diet is in fact a way of life for many folks, with lots of seafood, whole grains, vegetables, olive oil and even a glass of red wine added in every once in a while. And the added bonus is that this way of eating reduces the risk of heart disease. So head to Ouzeri and eat to your heart’s content with fantastic fare such as: Melitzanosalata ($6.95) Roasted eggplant pureed with green herbs and spices, and Horta ($7.95) Steamed greens topped with extra virgin olive oil and lemon.

If you want great Greek comfort food, Ouzeri is the place to be. Their exquisite signature Rosemary Pies will be available for the festival. They’ll be offering both chicken and lamb. My advice? Get one to eat during the festivities, and some to take home. Many of their other items will be offered inside the restaurant, though from a condensed menu during Taste.

here is nothing better than a cold salad when the sun’s rays are beating down. And Ouzeri on the Danforth is one of the few places that offers an authentic Greek salad ($10.95). This isn’t the one you’re used to with lettuce (although they do offer that version - $8.95). No, the Horiatiki salad forgoes the lettuce and instead focuses on tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, peppers, olives and feta. Tossed with extra virgin olive oil and oregano, it’s quite refreshing and surprisingly filling.
