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 table of four had a good experience though we did have to request twice for more pita bread. Considering we had ordered four appetizers including dips before our main courses the servings of pita bread were very small . Otherwise we had no complaints.

Sadly a screaming child was beside us for our first dinner out in over 1 year. The tables are too small for dinner, space tight so hard to fit plates without a continuous shuffle. The food was ok. Octopus was too chewy, rapini boiled and water logged with no seasoning. Pepper and salt not offered. Eggplant dip rather bland. Veg mousaka ok but once again had tasteless waterlogged veg in it. I think with some attention to detail and elevating taste profile the restaurant could be improved.

I had discussed my allergies with the server and gave him a card listing my allergies. I ordered only a Greek salad. We agreed that it would have no dressing, and that he would bring lemon and olive oil instead. When he brought the salad he said they had put a little olive oil on the salad and he brought more, and the lemon. By the time I got towards the bottom of the salad I realised they had put dressing on it, and added salad on top to hide it. I got an allergic reaction. Very unsatisfactory. It could have been very bad.

The noise level for indoor dining was intolerable. It was a busy night, had to wait for 50 minutes before the food arrived. 45 minutes after we ordered, we were told that a couple food items were sold out. The three dinners we ordered supposed to come with salad which never arrived on the table. We asked for some bread, we had to ask twice and took 15 minutes to arrive. Two kinds of dip, the mussels, and the chicken and pork souvlaki were way too salty. Having said that, I think the hostess was nice. Eventually she did arrange for us to move to an outside table after I spoke to her.

What a great evening at Christina's! We were there to celebrate a dear friends 60th birthday, and our server, Tommy, helped to make it a wonderful and fun evening. He took over right from the start offering food and drink suggestions, and he himself took great pleasure in making a Tom Collins cocktail, a throwback from his earlier years as a bartender! Thanks for the hospitality!

Our server was good for the first half of the meal. Once we were done eating and drinking we ended up waiting for a remarkably long time to be asked if we wanted the bill. Truly we are not people who ordinarily get upset about these types of things. But we waited for so long just sitting at a table with our server no where to be found that it was annoying. Food wise, it was below average Greek fare... Dry meat, with frozen fries and iceberg lettuce in the salad. I would never go back to this restaurant.

The calamari was crisp, the salad was fresh and tasty and you can’t go wrong with a little taramasalata to start things off. We were seated in a little tent of our own on the street side of the patio which felt private and sufficiently physically distanced. I’d definitely come back again!

I’ve been going to Christina’s for decades! I really loved the food this time. The taramusolata was incredible! The Greek fries were a big improvement as the feta is mixed with oil so it doesn’t fall off the fries when you eat them. I’m craving it now!!
