Reviews for Athena Greek Restaurant

I had high hopes for this place from looking at the menu. Unfortunately it fell terribly short. Waitstaff was slow and uninterested. Kitchen was very slow on a day when less than half the tables were seated. Food came out unevenly heated. Two forkfuls of rice = "bed" (see picture). Some of the food was nice, but not enough to risk returning.

I have to start this review by saying that I have a high standard for greek food. Unfortunately Niko Niko's in Houston spoiled me. I came in just after noon on a Thursday, and the place was fairly busy. I ordered the gyro plate, fries, and a side of feta. That was 30 minutes ago and still no food. How hard is it to slice off a couple hunks of meat onto a plate. Just overheard a waitress tell someone that a cook didn't show and there are only 2 waitresses. Food finally arrived....read full review

Sat on this review to make sure it was concrete and rational. My review: MEDIOCRE and service very slow. Gyro meat was dry or over cooked. It gets 3 stars b/c our server was as pleasant as could be despite appearing to be serving entire restaurant by herself. Yeah, yeah pandemic and everybody enjoying stimulus checks vs. working. Athena Should do like other restaurants have done: closing one room or wing so existing staff doesn't get overworked. Will not return.
