The service was absolutely disappointing. I would never go again to this place for any reason and I don't recommend this restaurant, not even to my worst enemy.

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.

The food was great, but our dining experience was completely ruined by the fact that the staff was rude, unprofessional and in some cases unable to handle food and drinks without spilling them onto the customers

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.

Usually, great food and decent service. But I think Winterliscious got the best of them last night. Food okay but served lukewarm. Our Server was disengaged and almost tossed the dishes at us over our heads. We were made to feel like were were inconveniencing him when we asked for anything. Not impressed and disappointed.

When I had booked the reservation in advance I had specifically requested not to be seated by the door. We were told no seats were available and were seated by the door. Not very happy since it was cold and to much traffic via waiters. The service was slow and waiters were not organized, we had to keep asking if our orders were coming. Some waiters were sitting around at the bar which they could of jumped in to assist, not very professional! We started off with appetizers, they were late coming to the table, one of the orders was octopus which was tough and not tasty, we had to return it. There were a number of things that no attention was paid to details, no water on the table, more napkins on the table, we had to keep asking for them. When we finally ordered our main Lamp Chops + Souvlaki we specifically told the waiter well done, this is how most Greeks prefer them, they were undercooked, we mentioned to the waiter and he said this is how the kitchen cooks them. In order to cook Greek you need to have Greek Chefs in the kitchen. Very disappointed due to the fact that we were celebrating my husbands 50th birthday. Will not be coming back nor refer this restaurant to anyone. Ouzeri has changed a lot and the service and quality of food has gone down.

Had a pre booked reservation for a dinner party for 45 people. From the booking upto the time the last guest left Ouzeri service was excellent. The service, accommodation, food, atmosphere and entertainment was A++. I will definitely be back again and will recommend it for small or larger parties.

It was my birthday dinner, they squeezed us in even though we were almost an hour late for our reservation on a busy Saturday night, and there were 11 of us. The Greek salad was amazing, the tzatziki was so fresh. I had the grilled calamari which was really tasty. Loved the saganaki. Would return in a second!

Loved the calamari and most of all the lamb souvlaki was amazing topped with TZATZIKI! Great wines and great service. Warm, upbeat vibe - perfect for my birthday! Love the fries so much too. Super clean washrooms - Even at 10:30pm! Will always go back again and again.

We gathered in Ouzeri for my birthday with a couple of friends and we are happy to say that the service was excellent, all of our requests were satisfied, they were willing to go out of their way for us so we can have a great experience, and they succeeded. I strongly recommend this place, if one thing is for sure is that you will receive some great Greek hospitality and feel like you're being taking care of.

Dessert was extremely sweet, to the point where I couldn't even take another bite. Service was a bit on the slow side. The restaurant wasn't even too busy, had to get the water's attention to refill water. Did not enjoy the fact that the server forced a certain amount of gratuity with my bill.
