My family and I have been coming here for many years now. I don't know what the other 2 reviewers were talking about- the service is always great and the food is amazing. The ambience is wonderful and it is a great place for a date or a family outing. I highly suggest it!

Worst dining experience of my life. Rude waiter...

Worst dining experience of my life. Rude waiter, our dinners were served at different time, so that my husband and I had our dinners but the kids didn't have their's, my kids ordered hamburgers, which came served on pita buns, because they had run out of hamburger buns, didn't tell us until after the dinners had been served, my husband's dinner was stone cold, and he was served first, my dinner was awful, I couldn't eat half of the mussels because they tasted off, we complained about the service and the food but the waiter couldn't care less. We will never come back to this horrible restaurant.

We like to go to "The Danforth". It has a pulse...

We like to go to "The Danforth". It has a pulse that we lack in suburbia. Brampton(40km away) 3rd time visitor. Brought 2 1st timers. The food was fine. Big portions, decent value. Dips are a bit pricey for what you get. $6 for a saucer of Tzatziki no pita. Homemade bread in the breadbasket was good, soft, almost like a foccacia. This place is noisy but in a good way. Calls of "OPA" mean to get you in the mood for fun. Very rustic traditional greek fare. My last two visits were in the summer months and I remember it much busier and the food and service better (8-9). From ordering appetizer to finishing dessert it took maybe 40 minutes. Superfast. Too fast for me. The Spanakotiropita explained feta cheese with leeks wrapped in phyllo was basically spinach in pastry that was over done(bottom was black.) I looked at my friends Lamb Souvlakiwhich he ordered medium) was blood red in the centre and he left half of it. Pizza was fine. I've had better and worse. Calamari had to be frozen they had that processed look to them. Homemade just look (and taste) different. I didn't believe this to be what we were suppose to get but the server we had didn't lend to questioning her. She may have been the matriarch of the group but doesn't know much about restaurant service. Personally, it takes more than taking orders and bringing plates (a monkey could do that), she barely spoke two words... "...you greek?"... "...no sorry, italian". She almost smiled while asking (I do look greek yes. No Interac.(debit) This was probably our last visit here. We're definatly not going to make the trip just for this place again. There are too many other restaurants of the same nature within 2 blocks in either direction...well try those first.

Everything was done to perfection - super friendly service, generous portions, incredibly yummy food, lovely ambiance (great Greek music in the background), and very reasonably priced. We were super happy - had a most enjoyable lunch. Oh, and we weren't rushed either. Highly recommend.

it was very warm last friday night when my party of TWO arrived having made a reservation for the patio at 6pm. We were shown to a table in the sun. Meanwhile there were many empty tables in the shade set up for four - any of which could have been separated. When we asked for a shady table we were told those tables were reserved - yet there were no reserved signs and meanwhile I too had reserved. We settled for a compromise but was annoyed. Several of those other tables never did fill or were later separated by other staff. That was not appreciated. The food was good but that service was poor.

We were a bit disappointed in their white wine sangria which was overly diluted with fruit juice but they did add some additional wine for us which was nice.

The plan was for 5 at 6. My wife and I got there a little early and they hooked us up with the patio. Nice and relaxed, couple of drinks, and a couple of appetizers while waiting. Both parties that were joining us were late. 1 at 6:15, the other 2 showed up around 6:45. No hassles about the space or anything. Turned out one of our party was having a rough sun day and we needed to shift off the patio. Not a problem. Easily accommodated us, moved us inside, switched servers. More appetizers, drinks then the main courses. Everything was great. No rushing us at all, made sure everything was good. Worth the tips (both wait staff were great and the first guy deserved a tip as well).

wait staff was friendly and willing but service was slow. it appeared that there were too few servers. or perhaps the kitchen was slow. we would have ordered more food but we were going to a performance in the neighbourhood and ran out of time.

I have visited Pappas Grill before and have always had great service and very tasty meals. This time, the service from the waitress was fantastic hence the large tip, but the kitchen staff were short handed and our meals took far too long to come. However, the waitress kept us up to date on what was going on and management took care of us in light of the delays. I won't hold this against them as this has not ever happened before in previous visits. I highly recommend the restaurant for the staff, the atmosphere and the great food.

We were a group of sisters from all over North America. We hadn’t seen each other for about six months, so we were slow in ordering and kind of preoccupied. But the server was patient and kind. It was a great dinner! Thanks.

11 friends out for dinner and what a pleasant experience! Online reservation booking was a breeze, parking was close by and when we arrived (5:00pm) we were brought promptly to our table. It wasn’t very crowded at that time of night so the room wasn’t noisy. The music could be heard in the background and this added a nice tone to our get together. The meals were served hot, and the portion sizes were quite big. Everything was delicious!! We would definitely return to Pappas Grill again without hesitation. Thanks!!

I brought my girlfriend-first time and my hubby and I frequently dine here or with our friends The food is always so delicious, fresh and big portions, service is great (cost as well) and the staff are very friendly and attentive. What more could you ask for amidst this very inviting and warmly comfortable decor. My next stop may include an attempt at their art night-canvas and paints. I am not a visual artist but it will be another little adventure to enjoy at Pappas Grill.

Had an early dinner and restaurant was kind of empty but great decor and comfortable atmosphere on a freezing night in TO. Our service from Aaron (Erin?) was excellent and the food was fantastic. Aaron was attentive to our every need and helped us navigate our next stops on the Danforth for our evening ahead. The food was cooked to perfection and the serving sizes were extremely generous. Our entire party agreed that a return visit was a certainty. Highly recommend this restaurant!!

I think for a Friday, they should have more staff on hand. One server for a section with 30+ people is quite the load for one staff member to tend to. She did try her hardest and I have to commend kept a smile at all times, but way too much of a workload. Food and ambience is very nice

Nothing Special about the grilled octopus. We ordered the appetizer. Says Shareable. NOT.... We had only 2 tentacles.. Too pricey. The grilled calamari was more acceptable although I still found it too pricey. For the price that should be coming with sides already. We decided to order a salad a large on which my sister and I shared and that was a good one.

Go Greek with these moussaka dishes in Toronto

Go Greek with these moussaka dishes in Toronto

There’s no shortage of Greek cuisine on the Danforth, but this contemporary multi-leveled restaurant sets itself apart with an enchanting garden patio. The sprawling open air space comes alive in the summer months with colourful flower baskets and local residents enjoying an al fresco meal and a glass of wine. You won’t find too many surprises on the crowd-pleasing menu, which focuses on Greek specialties and comfort foods. The moussaka — a ground beef casserole layered with eggplant and zucchini and baked under a rich béchamel sauce — arrives accompanied by a Greek salad and savoury rice.
