Athens on 4th Caters Executive Parties 9/4/2010

Folks, I have been dining at Athens on 4th Avenue in Tucson for years where I have consistently found high quality authentic Greek cuisine including artisan Greek dishes, fresh fish and seafood, chop-house quality prime meats, vegetarian specialties, homemade soups, and handmade desserts. The current General Manager, Georgios Varnasidis (though I just call him ?George?), is friendly, outgoing, and treats each customer as a family member. A couple years ago, I asked George if he would be willing to cater an evening barbecue at my home for a small group of international executives. Not only did he say, ?Yes? but he and his staff did an excellent job. The food and wine were superb. Setup, service, and cleanup were quite reasonably priced. Even if you do not know much about Greek food, I suggest you give Athens a try. I am sure you will enjoy the dining experience. more

Food...Yum....Owner...YUCK 5/11/2010

I took my girlfriend there for dinner to celebrate her graduation from college. At first I was impressed by the owner walking from table to table making sure everyone was enjoying their meals, and the atmosphere, then I realized out of the 10 tables he went to we were the only ones he never made an effort to come say hello. Its not that he didn't see us, he walked past us numerous times and never even cracked a smile. It wasn't until I was out the door that he yelled ""Thank You"" from the back of the restaurant. I left with the feeling that I was not welcome there and would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. Waitress and food were good but could not good enough to overcome the feeling of being treated like second class citizens. Pros: Food Cons: Price, Owner more

Delicious, not over-done! 9/15/2009

I think the previous reviewer is a smoker or something if he/she can't taste the spices and garlic! more

only ok 9/19/2006

The food was ok, the service was ok.............not the best experience i've had in a tucson restaurant, maybe just an off night? more

The Service is better than the food... 10/1/2005

Athens on 4th is a nice restaurant. You could tell that the staff is predominently greek, but the food isn't. Everything seemed a bit bland. When I eat greek, I expect to TASTE the garlic and herbs. It was the first time I have ever eaten at a greek restaurant and not seen any feta cheese. For $14 for a Gyro Platter you would expect something that resembles a greek salad served before or as accompaniment. The portions were decent, but the prices a bit high. The baklava was good, not great. Great baklava is sweet, but not overpoweringly so. All I could taste was honey, the filo and nuts were drowned out. The staff was excellent, they were so accomidating that it was almost worth the bland food and high prices. For a Friday it was surprising how many empty tables there were, a reservation was definately not needed. Pros: Staff, Atmosphere Cons: Price more
