They have a decent amount of gluten free options, which I always appreciate. I love the stuffed eggplant and the avgolemono soup is very lemony. My only wish is that they had gluten free pitta bread so that I wouldnā€™t have to eat the tzatziki spread with a spoon. ;)

I can not believe this place has such a big rating. I've never had such a bad greek food in my life. I ordered a moussaka there which was too ambitious. The food is greasy, portions are super huge, and salads are not fresh. I could not even finish the plate. The worth thing is I had a heartburn later that day. I will not recommend this place to anyone who wants to try greek food.

Loved this place! Came here on a Thursday night and it was oddly empty, but the food and service were spectacular.

We were thrilled with our meal. Everything was so fresh and delicious. We wanted more than deli food. Kalimera did not disappoint! We arrived later in the evening and many favorites were sold out so go early. We will be back!

Be very careful about extra charges onto your credit card (I noticed a tip was added to my takeout charge when in fact no tip was given in the first place)

What a sweet place! The RealDeal. Feels like a real escape. Super sweet waitress. Love the decor. Easily accommodated family party of 8 at 5 on a Saturday. Lots of specialty faves and they're homemade! Best grape leaves with tzatziki I've ever had. We got baklava to go and Mom called later to say her YiaYia used to make it with 1 clove in each diamond and she hasn't seen it that way since. Thumbs up!

Coming from a Greek, this place offers authentic Greek cuisine. The owners are super nice and have brought with them directly from Greece the secrets of dishes that are otherwise impossible to get in the US. Ask for the daily specials

Wonderful authentic Greek food. Fish and meet are just amazing.

Wonderful. This is the real deal, NOT diner food.

I love this food!!! It is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Everything I've eaten tastes great. The owners and staff are friendly and courteous.

Best Greek restaurant in CT by far! Everything is delicious and authentic. The owner and main chef put his heart and soul to his cooking and only use freshest ingredients. Also great opportunity to learn some Greek because half of the customers are from Greece - and thatā€™s no coincidence!

We were a party of 6 that almost didn't allow enough time for dinner. Service was provided by a very nice waitress working alone. Her task was apparently complicated by "something bad" that happened to the lamb chops in the kitchen; it finally arrived as others were finishing. A fish special called Bream was the best of the table with the leg of lamb dinner being the worst - several other dishes fell into the "okay but I probably won't order that again" category. Unfortunately they ran out of the sardines at lunch which sounded promising as a special. The Greek salad had no lettuce and an over abundance of winter tomatoes. Atmosphere was basic with a small bucket on the table holding the paper napkins but if one can figure out what is going to make the kitchen shine on a particular night then it would be worth another try.

Love this place. My family is Greek and I lived in Greece. Love the food and atmosphere. We come here as often as possible. Very healthy and fresh. Family friendly.

Cute inside, very open and blue, with murals and art. Our waitress was friendly but a bit lacking - she brought the check before asking us if we wanted dessert and coffee (we did), and was not very attentive. Only ONE seafood item, the shrimp on salad, was available due to weather issues in Greece. The shrimp was over-priced for the portion size, although perfectly grilled. Very good gyros with fries inside. The oven roasted lemon chicken was juicy and tasty. We tried two soups that were very flavorful - lentil and lemon chicken. The Greek coffee and baklava were also wonderful. If not for the lack of seafood, and service, I'd give 4 stars. Certainly worth another try.

I really love this place. I went there for a lunch with my mother. The lady who waited our table was very kind. The food was delicious and very affordable. Perhaps this was because we came at a slow time, but there weren't many people there. I'm a little bit concerned about that. It's a great restaurant, and they deserve a solid base of customers. I hope word spreads. They've won my loyalty.

Our favorite Greek place close to where we live closed and we were pining for good Greek food. works in this area so we decided to give this a try based on the positive reviews. This place totally comes through with the food and the service. Very spacious dinning area with light Greek colors. We ordered the Mesogiaki salad, grilled octopus then grilled sardines and mousaka The mesogiaki salad was great everything was fresh. The salad was served in a bowl made of Parmesan cheese. Mousaka was really good. Sardines and octopus were simply and well prepared
