Excellent

Excellent Greek food and amazing ambiance. Go on a night with the live musicians and Belly Dancer entertainment. Really adds to the atmosphere. As does the patio on a nice warm summer evening. Food is terrific. Large portions and reasonable prices. Excellent kalamari. Highly recommended.

I was here for breakfast/Lunch on Sunday. We were not happy with the service and food at all. 1. It took more than 45min to have our meal. There was only 1 table with customer when we get there. 2. They server me the end toasted bread with my breakfast 3. Over cooked vege on my daughter lunch. 4. 3 tables who came after us get served before. So disappointed overall

Mouthwater Experience

I'm writing this after just finishing our delicious meal at Christina's seating on their lovely patio filled with healthy beautiful flowers. Love the environment, packed but very accommodating and well worth the little wait that might be necessary. Great service, waiters are super friendly and efficient. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant on the strip!

Great Greek Restaurant

Visited Christina's couple of days ago. I felt like I was at a restaurant on one of the Greek Islands. There was entertainment, a bouzouki player and a belly dance who were very good. For some people they might find it a little noisy, but that added to the atmosphere and it only lasted while the belly dancer performs. The food was great, especially the grilled octopus, kolokithokeftes (zucchini croquettes) and the kalamari for appetizers. Our entrees consisted of lamb chops, whole fresh grilled sea-bass and rack of lamb. Everything was delicious. We had two bottles of a nice Cabernet Greek wine. Portions are large and well presented so is the service.

Fun and Very Entetaining

The atmosphere and entertainment was so much fun! The belly dancer was energetic and fun. The service is professional and friendly. The food was great, try the rack of Lamb and the Kalamari crispy and very tender. We were in a large group and everyone talked about how delicious their meal was. This is now our favorite place in Greek town.

Live

great overall atmosphere and service. the crowd is on the older side and the place is seemingly more of a family place (greeks primarily). i tried the tested and true thing on the menu the souvlaki on the menu as i've had bad experiences in the past when i order something I don't know - yes their menu is entirely greek. the ambiance is great when your inside. the live music was a bit too loud for us. the service was great throughout and their were no complaints with the food. nothing special though which is why I wouldn't visit again - across the road and in the entire area you will find less expensive areas to eat in.

This restaurant is open late and is a favourite...

This restaurant is open late and is a favourite of other restaurant workers. There is a tendency to overorder and doggy bag, so the price really is for for three meals, not two! The entertainers are fun, the servers attentive, and it is a place where I can take the whole family. the grandkids love the flaming cheese! The seafood soup is almost a meal in itself, with lots of tasty ingredients and liquid that begs to be mopped up with the complimentary bread. The desserts always look wonderful, but we never have room for them! Watch out for the zombies, they can creep up on you... the patio is a great place to watch the Danforth and the propane heaters make it livable for much longer. Take the TTC - Danforth parking is a zoo. We can walk it from Queen Street, and we usually need to after our excess!

Our family of nine had a fabulous time at Christina's- the food and atmosphere were excellent! Everyone enjoyed themselves from the 20 somethings all the way up to the family matriarch. Our waiter Dimitris was attentive and friendly. This is our new favourite restaurant on the Danforth - can't wait to go back!

The venue as a whole was pleasant and comfortable. The wait staff were cordial, prompt and attentive. The food was mediocre at best. Neither the appetizers nor the entrees were particularly flavourful and frankly my entree was tepid at best. It did involve eggs which don't tend to stay hot long once removed from the fire, but at least put it under a heat lamp to maintain its integrity. I'll try other restaurants before considering returning to Christina's.

Great meal on the patio with great service. Food was great but potatoes a teensy bit undercooked. Both proteins (lamb shanks and kalamari) were cooked perfectly! Overall wonderful meal, can't wait to go back.

Everything was great, it was a little quiet due to the poor weather, however that worked out well for us since we were conducting business. My guest had lamb chops with over roasted potatoes, and the baklava for dessert. He loved his entire meal. I had a large Horiatiki salad with a Greek-style grilled chicken breast and it was very tasty. For the record I am Greek.

Distracted slow service, our food arrived after orders of tables arriving after us were served. Quality: poor. Limp French toast, soggy thin omelet, overlooked greasy potatoes. I will never set foot in here again. Absolute garbage all the way around.

My husband and I had made a reservation for dinner on Easter Sunday and upon arrival at the restaurant we were notified that they had run out of food. Upon hearing that we had made a reservation we were asked to wait and eventually were told that we could be accommodated but there was only one item on the menu still available. We decided to stay as we felt they were making an effort to accommodate us. Once seated, we waited for 20 minutes without a waiter approaching us and at this point we decided to leave the restaurant without anybody seeming to pay attention to our departure. Needless to say, a very disappointing dining experience.

I hadn't been in a long time (over ten years), but used to frequent quite a bit in my late teens and early twenties (approx 30 years ago...lol). The service was great & for the most part the food quality was also amazing, we had the trio of dips (hummus , taramosalata & Skordalia) - the taramosalata was awesome, the skordalia was ok, but the hummus was dry and seemed to have sat out for awhile before being served. We also had the the Feta and olives, grilled veggies and Dolmades and they were all fresh and very tasty! I was surprised that on a Friday at lunch the restaurant was essential empty - other than us there were only 3 to 4 tables... Good old Christina's....

Booked for a family gathering of 10 Adults and 2 babies. The restaurant was not busy and we were stuck at the back of the restaurant where it was very cold. Service was painfully slow not to mention the lipstick stained glass and Ripped seat cushions. We had an accident with a wine carafe with the server where glass broke on the table. The server for safety should have removed all of the wine glasses from the table to ensure no glass had shattered into other glasses. Thankfully it had not. We had to ask for Things several times before they were brought to the table. Food was mediocre. Atmosphere is dated. It's too bad because this restaurant has been a staple for years.
