Editorial review from Urbanspoon 4/12/2012

I visited the restaurant with my family for the first time in April of 2012. These people are crooks. First, the prices they charged for various entrees were a few dollars higher than the prices on the menu. Then, they increased the tip on the charge to my credit card. In looking over the charge slip, I also noticed that they charged 8% tax when the Miami-Dade tax is 7%. Moreover, the quality of the food is mediocre at best. The gyro meat was dry and the baklava was poorly made. more

Tonight I had the most unfortunate experience that will result in me never visiting the establishment again and advising all my family and friends to do the same. \r \r Consumers beware: Mykonos Greek Restaurant on 1201 Coral Way is overcharging its customers. If you decide to eat there, make sure to check your bill carefully. Although I suggest that you try Maria's Greek on Coral Way instead.\r \r So what happened? I went to eat dinner at Mykonos on Tuesday July 19th, 2011. I had a $25 Restaurant.com gift certificate. The certificate has the following restrictions: Minimum purchase of $35. 18% Gratuity added prior to discount. Valid for Dinner, Food, Dine In ONLY. Excludes: Alcohol, Other Offers/Promotions. Present prior to ordering. Not valid on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.\r \r The wait staff was prompt and courteous. The food was fairly good. It was when I was presented with the bill that my experience took a down turn. This is the breakdown of the bill:\r \r Sub Total: $42.75\r Sales Tax: $4.09\r Discount Total: $25.00\r Gratuity: $8.43\r Check Total: $30.27\r \r The overall bill seemed high to me and at first I couldn't pin point it. Then I realized that they overcharged me tax. $4.09 of $42.75 (the pre-discount amount) is a tax rate of 9.6%. I asked the waiter why they were charging such high tax and he couldn't give me an answer so he brought over the manager. The manager came over and said that tax is 8%. I told him that I hadn't heard of an 8% tax, it was my impression that it should be 7%, but even if it was 8%, he is still over charging. The manager was reluctant to make any correction and kept insisting on 8%. After repeating myself several times, he said he was going to "check" and he walked away.\r \r If you are wondering, tax is 8% on some Miami-Dade Restaurants. Per Miami-Dade Tax Collector - "A one percent (1%) Homeless and Domestic Violence Tax is collected on all food and beverage sales by establishments that are licensed by the State of Florida to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, except for hotels and motels. Only businesses that make over $400,000 in gross receipts annually are obligated to collect this tax."\r \r I waited patiently for a while but the manager was taking quite a long time. In reality the difference of 8% and 9.6% on my bill was less than a $1 ($0.67 to be exact). So I walked over to him and said, "Look, I need to leave and I don't need to wait for a $1." At which point he corrected me and said it was $0.67. So I continued, "Yes, $0.67. Point is you are overcharging your customers and that does need to be corrected." He clearly didn't care and got frustrated. He gave me the bill to sign and then threw $0.67 on the counter. I told him that I come here several times and I now I will never return. To which he said that he didn't care. He proceeded to call us "ass holes" and told us to "get out of his restaurant"\r \r The worst part of all this is that it doesn't end there. So the bill is supposed to have an 18% tip automatically added to it per the Restaurant.com certificate. The credit card receipt also mentions "18% Gratuity Included in Total." Well they are not charging 18%, they are charging 19.72% gratuity. Personally I don't mind because I usually tip 20% and our server earned 20% gratuity. But here again, is Mykonos charging more than what is being presented. Let's look at the numbers. $8.43 gratuity is 19.6% of the pre-tax amount of $42.75. It turns out that Mykonos is charging 18% on the total amount of $46.84 (sub-total & tax). You could argue if the gratuity should be on the sub-total or total of a bill, but I have always gone by the sub-total.\r \r So now I'm home documenting what happened and sending this information to Restaurant.com, the better business bureau, consumer reports, Yelp, Urban Spoon and other review sites with the hopes that consumers who decide to eat at this establishment are aware of Mykonos' questionable accounting.\r \r Attached are the receipts as proof of what they charged me.\r \r After some more analysis of the receipts, I realized what is wrong with their register. Here it is:\r - The subtotal is $42.75, tax is calculated at $4.09 and tip is calculated at $8.43. \r - The $4.09 is an 8% tax of the total of $51.18: $42.75 (sub-total) and $8.43 (tip) \r - The $8.43 tip is an 18% tip on the total $46.84: $42.75 (sub-total) and $4.09 (tax). \r As you can see their register is calculating these charges in a loop. In the end it results in that the consumer is paying more for tax and more tip on a total (not sub-total) amount of the bill. more

Been here a few times, the food is pretty good. Service wasn't great, but I could put up with it. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 5/6/2011

This place will knock you on your back. Great Greek food, not cheap but well worth going more than every once in a while. The mousaka is delicious and the deserts are the best you can have. The galactabourikos (I'm not sure if I spelled that right) is irresistible. Also, a little secret, take out prices are all cheaper and same portions as eat in, so if you don't have time to eat in you'll save $1-$3 per plate and dessert. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 9/27/2010

My wife wife and I were never more dissapointed. Your restaurant came highly reccomended but did not live up to expectations.\r \r Within two minutes of the appetizer being served the waiter was putting our main courses on the table. I told him we just started the appetizers he was annoyed. He took them back and returned to us again in ten minutes, I asked if they were reheated he said no, the filo dough was soggy and tasteless my wifes lamb was so hot and overcooked it could not be eaten If you are trying to rest on your laurels you better wake up and smell the roses more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 8/27/2009

We have ordered delivery a few times from Mykonos, so when we decided to dine-in, we already expected the service to be a bit slow. We visited on a Thursday evening and were one of only 4-5 tables in the restaurant, however the waiter took almost 20 minutes to take our drink and food order. He then disappeared for another 10 minutes before bringing our drinks. Overall, we spent more time waiting for the server than actually eating our meal.\r \r But don't let that discourage you, the food is excellent. I love their Greek salad. It is huge with a healthy portion of cheese and olives. Their pita bread is fresh and warm, and the soulaki and gyro meat is amazing. \r \r The price is hard to beat for the quality ( about $25 for two, ordering liberally ). Sit outside to have the perfect evening. Inside, the restaurant is a little run-down, but the patio is a very romantic spot for a nice meal. more

Great Greek Food! 10/23/2008

I happen to love Mykono's. The service is great. The food is excellent and very affordable. I recently took my parents and sister to Mykono's for dinner. They had never been and loved it. My dad said that the roasted chicken was tender, juicy, and loaded with flavor. My mom thought the hummus and eggplant dip was the best she had ever had. As for my sister... The baklava was her favorite! I have been going to Mykono's for lunch for about a year. The food, the atmosphere, and the service has always been excellent!!! Pros: Ambience, food, service more

Hoping for a Greek thrill and was dissappointed 9/16/2008

My husband and I went to Mykonos to satisfy our curiosity after driving by for years. We sat outside and placed our order with the less than enthusiastic waiter. We asked him if he was Greek, and he was not, nor were any other servers. We asked for recommendations, and ended up ordering the lemon chicken soup (oligolemono sp?), spanikopita, and lamb shank platter. It was just okay, there was zero ambience, and we have no plans of returning. I wish I could say it was spectacular, as we have eaten Greek food in the past and loved it, but alas, we will have to pass on this place. Pros: I guess the fact that you can obtain mediocre Greek food is better than nothing Cons: no ambience, service could be much better more

It is just ok, used to be better 8/29/2008

The server ignored us as far as asking us if we wanted refils, or dessert, or even coffee, a second glass of wine. I order the veggie gyro, asked if there were any peppers in it, they said no, lo and behold it came with peppers in it.... server did not care. I won't go back. Daily Bread is a much better place to more

Best Greek food I've had yet. 5/18/2007
