We recently moved near the Maillardville area and a co-worker recommended My Greek Restaurant. This was our 2nd attempt at eating here, as they were oddly closed on a Saturday afternoon at 12 when we first tried.
As we entered we were promptly greeted by a server. She gave us a quick once over before asking how many of us there were. Very odd. She plunked down our menus and we had a seat.
The menu was the generic Greek fare. Moussaka, Souvlaki, Calamari, Roast Lamb, etc. Prices were reasonable for dinner, with the entree's averaging around $14.95 each.
Our waitress returned and asked us what we'd like. I was a little turned off that she crossed her arms and stared at us when we ordered. She seemed a little less friendly with us, but not other customers. Anyways, I ordered the Calamari Dinner, and my wife ordered the Roast Lamb.
While we waited, we found it hard to chat with the loud music in the background. As the restaurant got more full, we had to yell to each other over the noise. In addition to the very dark lighting, it wasn't the most pleasant ambiance.
When the food arrived we were pleasantly surprised at the large portions. The food was delicious. The calamari was crisp and lightly battered, and the sides were well done too. The roast lamb was very large and moist without being greasy. We were only able to get through about half our plates and had to take the rest home.
Again oddly our waitress never came back to check if everything was ok with the food. All the while, the music was getting louder and louder. To their credit, the other waitresses were much more friendly and helpful and continually topped up our water and checked in on us. Our waitress (Ivanka I think) was obviously the head waitress and for some unknown reason disliked us as she didn't behave the same to other patrons. She seemed a little more friendly when bringing us the bill, perhaps because it was tip time. We had another pleasant surprise when the bill arrived as my wife's Roast Lamb dinner was on special for the night for $12.95.
Pros: The food quality and the portions were excellent, and the price was very reasonable.
Cons: The poor attitude from the 1 server, the dark lighting, and the loud noise factor.
Overall we'll surely give them a try again. The food is definitely worth it!
