Everything we ordered came out perfectly cooked and delicious.
Strongly recommend if what you are looking for is a quiet, unpretentious, good Greek food place. Service was outstanding - Victor and Maria Loi herself made us feel welcome and special guests. Dessert on the house? Yes, please! The décor is modest - better to avoid if a very formal occasion. But the tab reflects it - it was very good value.
Loi never disappoints! The food is unique (the calamari so tender, unlike most rubbery versions other restaurants offer). I never imagined yogurt would be my favorite dessert, but now it is. The chef, Maria Loi, is always on-site when we're there, adding to the ambience. The service is attentive but never intrusive.
Other than the most fresh, perfectly prepared seafood imported from the Mediterranean daily, I particularly love how Maria comes to your table welcoming you like family! The level of hospitality her whole team has is amazing. Alex helped us choose the perfect wine and my guests were so impressed with such a fabulous lunch. Thank you Maria and Loi team! Definitely be back soon
We bring family and special friends to Loi when we want to show visiting guests the best of NYC. The food is organic, fresh, healthy and delicious and the service is outstanding with Chef Loi personally making sure everyone feels welcome and happy.
Excellent wine recommendations and food! Owner was lovely and thanked us for coming. Was a wonderful menu for me, as I have a dairy allergy. They were very accommodating to my dietary needs
Always the best food and vibe! Chef Maria Loi and her team are so welcoming. Beautiful summer destination for outdoor dining, or any time of the year. Thanks for making my family dinner (a few who were traveling internationally) so special! You made everyone feel at home.
I was excited to come here based on the reviews. We were sat outside which was nice. However, after we ordered dinner, my daughter was startled by several cockroaches on the wall next to her. When we asked the waitress if we could move inside because of this problem she laughed at us. I asked if this was a common problem and she laughed again and said what do you expect when eating outdoors. I have eaten outdoors many places and not had this problem. We did move inside and it was nice. Other than this waitress the staff was quite nice. The food was okay and nothing special. It was a bit bland. The pita and sauce was delicious. At the end we ordered a chocolate cake and baklava that were below expectations but we were brought homemade Greek yogurt courtesy of the chef that was the highlight of the mean. For 4 people the bill was over $300 with only 2 glasses of wine. Sadly we will not be back.
We had our last dinner with friends before our move to another apartment. Loi is right around the corner from our old apartment and is our go to local restaurant. We consistently got take out from there during the worst of the pandemic. I have never had anything less than an excellent meal there. Maria is a friendly, attentive host who makes everyone welcome and then serves them delicious food. We will willingly travel back from our new apartment to eat there. Must tries : Appetizers: the Spreads , the Octopus, Grilled Halloumi, Calamari , Grilled Talagani. Entrees:Stuffing Eggplant, Mussels, any fish dish.
Great service, great seafood dishes, we ordered branzino and lamb shank as entrees, both were delicious. The starters were octopus and grape leaves, interesting! Lovely owner/head chef, she was very friendly.
Eating at Loi Estiatorio is like taking a mini vacation to Athens! The food is simple, elegantly presented, authentic and memorable. And Chef Loi came by to make sure we were happy. Her infectious enthusiasm makes the street noise disappear. There are multiple outdoor tents, each separated be a screen. The service is efficient and very friendly.
Fantastic food and service!
