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.

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.

If you enjoy the bar atmosphere I recommend it but not functional for conversation. Our service was rushed and it appeared they were under staffed. Food was alright but not worthy for Summerlicious promotion.

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.

Food was tasty. Summerlicious menu was great with lots of options. Yogurt dessert was to die for! Service was not the warmest and a bit rushed, they tried to take away my boyfriend's beer before he was done with it. As well, they brought us the cheque without asking, we actually had wanted to have another drink, oh well, one less sale for them!

It was a nice day, sunny and warm. I've been to this restaurant several times before and enjoyed it every time. Last year I took my friend there because she likes Greek food and she lives outside Toronto, so the Danforth was a nice place to go and people watch. She also enjoyed it both times. This time we took advantage of the Summerlicious menu.The food is good, the patio was nice, and the service has always been good. We lucked out this time with baklava right out of the oven. Doesn't get fresher than that. Also, there was a good variety of choices. I'll go again.

The restaurant didn't have our booking. But we got a table b/c it wasn't too busy. Hadn't been to Ouzeri in years. There are trendier places in the area but if you want a chicken or lamb souvlaki dinner on a nice patio, probably the best in the area. Dips are all great too

I recently had dinner at the Ouzeri with a friend and it was excellent. The food was amazing and I would highly recommend this restaurant for an authentic Greek dining experience. The staff were friendly and our server did a great job of taking care of us. We shared the pork shoulder (delicious) and the grilled calamari (perfectly grilled) as our mains with an order of grilled veggies. For appetizers we shared an order of very yummy hummous, a greek village salad and a greek salad - very fresh with a nice dressing. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back for another wonder meal.

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.
