Rude Manager 4/25/2010

I went to Christos this last weekend with my girlfriend and there were some definite ups and downs. The pros were that the ka-bobs and waitressing staff were phenomenal along with the wine selection. The cons were as follow; I walk in with my date and stand around for a good 3-4 minutes. After making eye contact with several staff members and having no one there to greet us, my date and I decided to find a seat and sit down. Now, the restaurant was not busy and the dining room was maybe 60% full. After a couple of minutes we were appraoched by a burly woman who immediately makes the remark ""you know you cant seat yourselves here"". So I explained to her that we were waiting and that I didnt think that it was that big of a deal. She reply's ""well this isnt Chipotle you know, you cant just sit wherever you want"". At this point I am starting to become upset. I explained to her that I could have gone without that reminder and I didnt think that seating ourselves to purchase a dinner at your restaurant was a big deal. She was not only rude but condescending and to be honest looked like she was had been drinking a little herself. I am a 26 years old attorney making over 6 figures and I can guarantee you that if we were a couple in our 50s this wouldn't have happened. The food was great except for the gyro, you can get a better gyro at the corner deli, not impressed. Otherwise the experience was OK, the atmosphere was dull and I would be reluctant to recommend this restaurant over other Greek ones in the area. Pros: ka-bobs were great Cons: the manager, the atmosphere, the gyros more

Best Greek in the Twin Cities 2/10/2010

Best Greek food I've had yet in the U.S. Everything I've ever ordered has been delicious. It quickly became my birthday restaurant. My husband and I would order out the Gyros at least once a month for movie night. I also recommend the moussaka. more

Just like it tasted in Cyprus 3/3/2008

Great ambiance, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the food reminds me of when I was in Cyprus. I always enjoy their calamari and avegelemeno soup most, but it should all be sampled. I have tried the other Greek restaurants in town, but this is the only one that recreates the actual Mediterranean flavor. Pros: Great food with a nice atmosphere--perfect for casusal dinning or a night out Cons: None that I can see more

Real Greek food for real Greeks (and everyone else) 2/20/2008

As a Greek myself (with a grandmother who was a very noted chef in the Mediterranean), Christo's is where I go for my Greek fix. The food is always fresh, ingredients like the yogurt are made in the House -- and therefore are like nothing you'll get anywhere else. Full of flavor, spiced like only a Greek can do it, this food is interesting, satisfying, and often good examples of Greek ""comfort food."" The staff is fantastic, the owners make you feel like you're one of the family -- it's a place I always think of as my Minnesota taverna! Those who criticize this wonderful place may not know Greek food -- it's one of the great restaurants in the Twin Cities at any of the three locations (although Minneapolis has a special charm). more

Million Times better than Santorini! 9/17/2007

Food was amazing and authentic, great selection of wines, unbelievable desserts, fun atmosphere - the Greek restaurant to go to in the Twin Cities. Compared to overpriced, Americanized and greasy Santorini, Christos is a Greek paradise. Pros: Great food, authentic Greek, nice decor, friendly service, great value, good wine list Cons: is sometimes overcrowded more

A longtime favorite 12/8/2005

My wife and I have been eating at Christo's for years and we keep coming back. The food is consistently well prepared and the service is well-paced (neither rushed nor uncomfortably slow). I agree with the reviewers who comment that the atmosphere is a bit plain (try the St. Paul location for more ambience). Be sure to start with either a greek or village salad and a hummus appetizer. I enjoy trying the various Greek wines that are on always on the menu. Pros: Good value, Great food more

Looking for greek romance 8/30/2004

I was disappointed. Where is todays old world romance. You pick out the food, which was good. and the place looks like yesterdays deli. Just once I'd like to be able to get good food and a romantic ambience. more

Delicious Greek Food 4/29/2003

Christo's is one of my favorite restuarants. The food is great, if you go, get the dip sampler. It has four different dips to go along with Pita and is great to wet the appetite. I haven't had anything bad here, my favorite is the greek hash, the falafal is also great, the tabouli, the mousaka, they are all delicious. The service is generally good, if you get a seasoned server, the service is great, otherwise it can be just average. The wine list contains several greek wines that are fun to try. Even the house salad has an amazing dressing. Pros: Amazing Greek Food Cons: Inconsistent Service more

Sorry, but way overated 3/1/2003

I had heard this place was good, but was disappointed with the food. The main dishes did not have balanced ingredients and there was too much meat in every main entree (we ordered the sampler dish). The tomato basil soup was excellent, as well as the service. Nice place, but better greek places to eat for the same amount of money. Pros: parking, friendly service Cons: atmosphere, dished too meaty more

Bland Food but Nice Ambience 1/11/2003

I have to take issue with their claim of ""authentic"" Greek Food. Greek cuisine is one of my favorites so was very disappointed upon tasting their Moussaka (a greek casserole)... my mother's hamburger hotdish is more interesting. Seemed to be little to no seasoning, come on this is supposed to be Greek Food not watered down Midwestern food (I'm from the midwest so I can say that). Almost everything was bland. THe Spanikopita was great though! light, crispy and freshly prepared Pros: Mediterrean Ambience Cons: bland food more

Always Great 10/6/2002

Where do I start?! I guess with the tomato basil soup, which is nothing short of fantastic. The salad bar is always fresh and crisp, and the Greek olives are wonderful. The gyro meat is as tender as you can find, but sometimes the tomatos aren't as ripe as they could be. Overall, for lunch or dinner, it is a great value, and the service is always friendly and attentive. I will definitely be back again and again... Pros: superb value, excellent service, fresh food more

Meet & Eat--Anytime with Anyone 8/13/2002

Christo's has good food, reasonable prices, good & friendly service. You can go dressed to the teeth or with very few teeth--no matter, you'll feel at home. The spanakopita is the best on the planet. more
