Best Greek food

Zorba's is a family-run small restaurant in the middle of a block in Fairmount. From the outside, it does not look that appealing. Inside, you walk past the kitchen to get to the tiny dining room in the back. Start eating, and you'll see why this is a favorite restaurant of many people in the Fairmount neighborhood. The food is simply delicious, especially the lamb and seafood dishes. It's homemade like your grandmother would make. Sometimes we come home from work not wanting to cook, look at one another and say, ""We need Zorba's tonight."" You can't go wrong choosing this place.

Great authentic Greek experience!

We were impressed from the second we were greeted. We sat down on a lovely outdoor table shaded by a nice umbrella. The indoor atmosphere also appeared to hold a nice ambiance. The waiters were friendly, helpful, and quick! Service was excellent and so was the food, minus one slightly burnt pita. The Spinach spicy feta cheese spread was fantastic! We also thoroughly enjoyed the mussels, calamari, and hummus. Would highly recommend if you would like some authentic Greek food, atmosphere and people.

Scrumptious Food

Zorba's is a quaint place with terrific Greek food. I ordered the Cold Appetizer Combo (vegetarian selection), Grilled Octopus (very tender) and the Lamb/Beef Yeero platter which came with rice, potatoes (my fave) and mixed veggies. They have a selection for all tastes. I was getting take out so one of the gentlemen stood outside and watched my car while I ran (I parked at the curb but I was unsure if it was a true spot in city terms). I will go back with my friends very soon.

I wish I could recommend

Zorba's, I want so much to like you. But alas I cannot. You delight my carnivorous eyes with numerous meat choices, but then you bring me hopelessly overcooked skewers of spiced meat and charge me $28 for it. You coax me in on a weekday evening with your tantalizing oversized display of tasty gyros and kabobs, but them leave me crestfallen that you don't serve these after lunchtime. What reasoning could possibly lie behind this? You should add another neon sign to your already glowing neon store front that reads ""gyros/no gyros,"" like a Mediterranean motel. For now, I will look for Greek cuisine at window vendors and my aunt Monica's kitchen.

Greek, not Greek...Go to Zorbas!

I read the last review. Stingy on olives? If thats what you are concerned about, your missing a lot. Zorba's is the cultural divide between Greece and America. If you love lamb or want to try it, this would be the place to go! Myself being Greek, the experiece that I have at Zorbas is one of ""home."" For my husband, who is not Greek it is one of fine dining, good fun, and great atmosphere. Everything from the appitizers to the cup of Greek Coffee at the end is amazing. The staff is friendly beyond compare, but they usually are running around trying to serve people like mad when it is crowded. I recommend Zorbas without hesitation. FYI Your bill will add up fast if you enjoy the vast aspects of this establishment. Note: that if you do not ask for the check you will not recieve the check.

Where's the Olives.

An associate and I ordered 2 large Greek Salads for lunch, $7.00 each. We sat for 5 minutes before the waitress took our order. When the salads arrived, it was small and not the way we were accustomed to, with lettuce. More noticable was the lack of olives, 4 olives in the salad to be exact. When I think of a Greek Salad, I think of the olives. We asked the waitress for more olives, receiving approximately 8 between the two of us. Had I know this, we would have ordered a small or gone elsewhere. The salads were fresh with plenty of tomatoes & cucumbers, but I hesitate to return there or try any other dishes.
