Whenever I feel like greek food I go to socrates. I've only been a few times but each time I always enjoyed my meal very much. The only thing that needs to change is the prices which are pretty high..for maple ridge atleast, and the decor..does every greek place have to have the ugly typical plants on the ceiling and ugly art all over the wall? Is Greece filled with plants on every ceiling? probably not...tell me how this trend started? honestly. Waitresses are usually always very nice an Ive enjoyed myself every time I go to eat.
It was Valentine's Day, and though I knew it'd be busy... wow I didn't expect it to be that busy! I guess it isn't their fault, but everyone was literally sitting inches away from each other, and tiny tables were set up and as many were squished in to the restaurant as could fit for all the couples. What started off as hopeful (I love Greek food) ended up being very... mediocre unfortunately. Nothing special at all. I had a sea food skewer with rice, potato and Greek salad... everything I could have really made at home. I did end up being full... but for the prices the value of the food was ridiculous. Between the two of us we spent over $50 and we didn't know why!!! The rice was okay, tasted kind of like an instant rice though. They didn't give much seafood on my skewer at all, and the scallops were kind of watery tasting. The Greek salad was probably best part, but it's kind of hard to mess up a salad.
All in all, it was okay food... but DEFINITELY NOT WORTH the $25+ per dish... I'm sorry, but I'm not coming back!! Next time I want Greek food but don't feel like making it at home, I will go to Opa's!!
I love the food here...have to agree with the previous poster. that they are abit pricey for Maple Ridge and the decor isnt greatest...plus the chairs need to go....they are by far the worst restaurant chairs I have ever sat in. Even with the bad decor and chairs...the service is great, the food is excellent. I highly recommend them over any other Greek place in Maple Ridge and even the surrounding communites, like poco, mission etc.
