Since 1984, Felico's are known for their Greek food, lamb, seafood, pasta, steaks, chicken and more.
Food: Our party of 4 ordered 2 Felico's platter which consisted of lamb, chicken souvlaki, pita bread and hummous, greek salad, calamari, cocktail shrimp and stuffed shrimp with crab meat. This also came with rice, potatoes and veggies. The shrimp with crab meat and lamb were done extremely well. Chicken souvlaki was a bit too salty but over all quality should actually be 3.5 stars.
Service: I'm surprised to see the reviews below about bad service. Our server was great. Pleasant, non-intrusive and helpful. Perhaps it was because it was a weeknight and they weren't as busy?
Ambiance: they renovated since I was there last (Which was a while ago) so fairly nice for a casual sit down meal.
Value: for 15 bucks pp (we had a coupon), we were stuffed with a huge portion to take home for lunch the next day. Drinks are reasonably priced and no complaints on the food's quality.
Recommended! I'll be back!
Party of 10 with 8 having the Felico combo with coupon available in the local paper. Saved about $7 per couple. Darn right delicious and plentiful. So much food half the peeps took some home. Service was excellent some of the best I ever had in a restaurant. Restroom was clean and maintained. Free parking lot.
Food: Had a Greek Salad, a bit too oily for my liking. Pita bread tasted good. Friend had the salmon which was reported to be good. Ordered a strawberry slush type drink (forgot the name) but was very watery with bits of chunky ice floating around (i.e. consistency not right), did not taste like strawberry.
Service: Server very attentive without being overly intrusive.
Ambiance: newly renovated as of last year.
We went to Felico's some time ago after their renovation. The place looks gorgeous!
We were sat right next to the fireplace. It turned out to be fine because it wasn't a real flame (but looked nice). We ordered a kalamari appy and roast lamb entree. Both were exceptional and delicious. Felico's kleftico has a ton of flavor and is one of the best! We were both stuffed and couldn't finish the whole thing. That means yummy leftovers for lunch next day.
This place is such great value. Even though it may be a couple of dollars more expensive per dish than the average Greek restaurant, it really is worth it.
Eating at Felico's is like going back to visit an old friend after many years. The ambience is friendly, warm and the food is served in healthy, large portions that are good enough to fill larger appetites like mine.
I have been coming here for years, ever since I was little with my family. Prices have kept themselves fairly on the high end but I have no complaint in that sense because I think the prices are justified. But then again, I don't come here very often - I like to reserve it for special occasions. Just so you know, plates on average are between the ranges of $16 - 20. Some items on the menu, like the steak or grilled are more expensive though.
My personal favourites are the rack of lamb chops and the chicken linguine. The lamb pie is also a solid choice.
The service was great. You can get a large portion of food for a fairly resonable price. The Lunch and Dinner specials for TWO are Yummy!!!
Every Saturday night they have live entertainment. That's just an added bonus for those late night people.
haven't been here for years and there's another Greek place that I really love but I thought I'd give this a try so I can justify my recommendations of the other restaurant.
I had the lamb stew which was pretty good. Very hot and quite tasty. but I only got steamed vegetables that had no Greek seasoning, just salt. It was quite plain to me. I had 2 potatoes which were crispy on the outside & very good but I found myself wanting more. My boyfriend had the kleftiko and his wasn't hot enough. Also, he had the same amount & type of vegetables as me. At my preferred place, Maria's, we got greek style potatoes, salad, and rice. but if you prefer not to have as many carbs, you may prefer Felicos. I may be able to substitute the cooked veg for greek salad, because I didn't like the way they did the cooked ones. They gave us so much bread right at the beginning and we waited so long for our meals that when I tried to eat bread with my meal, the bread was already cold. I didn't want to ask for more because I didn't want to waste food. But they should change their strategies.
The ambiance is really good if you're looking for a lot of other people talking around you. It does look a bit more remodeled and the washrooms are newer and fancier. The service was very good. Honestly, props! But instead of having my hot water refilled, I actually had to ask for it. And when we asked for the bill, it didn't come for a long time. But still, it has its positive aspects.
This is the second time I went to this restaurant. I should say the first time (a year ago) experience was better. Food was better & in bigger portion. Last time we ordered the Seafood platter & this time we ordered the Famous platter. The salad was ok, the pita bread was hot, but homous was a bit cold, watery & sour to my taste. The chicken was fine but the lamb chop was overdone. I just ate a few calamari because it's deep-fried & kind of greasy. The stuffed shrimp was soaked in butter while the shrimp cocktail was soaked in half-melted ice water, that made the shrimp look unappetizing. The green beans were undercooked & don't expect a whole roasted potato, you'll have only one thick slice!
Overall the meal was fine with the friendly service, comfy ambiance & reasonable price but I should say the food was not outstanding.
Felico's has a beautiful exterior, and the ambiance inside was quite nice as well. I had the prawn and scallop souvlaki dinner, which was quite satisfactory, although my husband's and cousin's roast lamb was a little on the dry side. But all in all, it was a very pleasant atmosphere with friendly staff.
Love this restaurant and go there on a regular basis since me and most of my friends and relatives live in Richmond. Their food is always good and service is always friendly. Try their seafood/greek Combo for two, great value, reasonable priced and you can have a variety of items on their menu to try out. It's not easy for a restaurant to maintain a level of consistency for so many years, and I think their packed dining room every night shows just that.
Well done, Felico's!
here are the "finer" points of our evening at felico's, needless to say, we will NEVER be back and advise anyone to STAY AWAY FROM FELICO'S.
-server brought 4 wine glasses to a table for 7 - she poured the sample glass and then left. we had to ask for additional glasses and had to pour our own wine - she never poured a single glass
-we ordered a second bottle of white which when she brought to the table she plopped it down so hard that it sprayed on two of our party (still, there were not enough wine glasses and again had to ask for additional glasses)
-she forgot to put in one of our orders...we all slowed down eating, but the meal didn't come for at least 20 minutes - everyone's food was pretty much gone or cold at this point
-they offered dessert as compensation...the thing is, dessert comes with the meal
-when we asked to speak to "management" the "woman" was rude and abrasive saying "accidents happen" and "people are still eating, so she didn't see what the problem was"
-finally, to top off this incredible evening, the server who had forgotten the order came to our table and yelled at us! saying what a bad night she was having etc...
-i could give more examples, but this is already getting way to long...
in summary - yeah, mistakes happen, i get - just admit to it and make it right.
i have never felt compelled to write a review before, probably because i have never had such a horrific dining experience EVER. and i dine out a lot...it was a dreadful and upsetting evening.
Felico's was the biggest disappointment, this week. We arrived with a large party of 15 - everything here was disorganized. We were taken care of by multiple servers who forgot our drink and dinner orders - we waited at least 20 minutes for our wine and beer.
The food was delivered individually, leaving some to watch as others recieved their entrees, some intervals being over 10 minutes. When at last everyone received dinner, half the meal was cold. The food was bland and overcooked. We had the appetizer of saganaki, which at 9 95 is over priced. It was overly salty (and trust me, I eat khefatyri saganaki a lot) and hard - It's pretty obvious the cooks left it to burn...the cooks here are just not up to par.
It was a disappointing experience in every way. Stay away from here. There are plenty of better greek restaurants than Felico's
This newly renovated restaurant looks amazing, from the moment you walk into the huge front doors to the beautiful decor inside. The servce was excellent and the food was outstanding. I would definately dine here again. It was a great experience.
WOW! Talk about value and good quality.
I shared the Seafood Platter for Two with a friend of mine. It was $40.95 (pre-tax/tip) and we thought we'd just get a small sampling of a bunch of courses. WRONG!
The food came out as such:
1. two delicious whole wheat pitas, toasted, served with homemade hummus
2. side portion serving of Greek salad
3. a full-size serving of lightly breaded deep fried calamari with tzatziki - we couldn't finish it!
4. a full-size serving of mussels in tomato/garlic sauce
5. cocktail shrimp (about 8 of them or so) and seafood sauce
Then came the full course portion:
6. stuffed tiger prawns (4 of them)
7. seafood medley in cream sauce (salmon, scallops, cod, shrimp)
8. there was something else I think, but i can't remember what it was
9. a plate of sides - rice pilaf, half a red baked potato, and green beans and carrots
IT WAS SOOOO MUCH FOOD! And it was all good!
We definitely could not finish it all. And the waiting staff were very attentive.
Will definitely be back in the future!
- The slouvaki is amazing here and not only is the Greek food good but there are other items that are equally great.
- The value of the food is great - it is pricier compared to other Greek joints but the qualify is head and shoulders above the others.
- Service was solid, no complaints at all.
- The place had great decor, 2 flat screens in the bar - I love the seating arranagements.
Overall this place is one of the best places I have ever been for Greek food.
Did the Felico's thing about a week ago. Still bad, overpriced, and rude. The souvlaki for the kid was overcooked and tasteless. The mains, one salmon, one lamb both tasted off, oh well, just won't go back. Ordered an after dinner scotch-neat... it was watered down. Much better greek in Richmond
Went here on a friday night. They asked if we had a reservation, we didnt, but we were sat right away, by the window. It was very nice. Ambiance was nice. (bird poop on window above us was kinda gross, but minus that, it was all good) Our server was great. She came at all the right times.
You can see the team work is amazing here. All of them are so attentive. The servers have service staff who clear plates or pour cold water/ serve coffee for them. They all look relaxed and not frazzled. Food seemed to be coming out at a good speed to various tables around us.
We ordered the platter for two. Wow, way too much food for the both of us. They were nice to let us sub lamb for chicken as we dont eat lamb. I love their dolmades, one of the best I've ever had! Their pita is whole wheat which is a nice change from the regular white pita. We orginally came for lasagna, sadly they dont have it :( (come on Felicos, where's the lasagna :P)
We wanted dessert but were way too stuffed. We would definately come back here.
Went to celebrate b'day with a greek, 8 of us. We were seated quickly, drinks came quickly, and then, because we were so busy chatting, I noticed that the waitress was hovering, just waiting for us to get ready to order.
One of the guys knew the secret of this restaurant's success, to not season the food in the traditional Greek style. So we ordered extra Basil, Orageno on the side. Food came quickly, pretty healthy portions. Lamb was done right, flavourful; Caesar Salad, chicken on the side, great value. We all enjoyed the food and the fun time.
One small issue was the cost of House White, $20 per half litre. Okay, it was Robert Mondavi, but that is still a little pricey.
Otherwise, a great evening and we'll be back.
Went to Felico's a few days ago and wanted to tell everyone how good the service was at this place. Sometimes what really sets a restaurant apart is the service and Felico's had exceptional service.
Service: Hands down the best service I have had in ages. Server was on our group the entire time, bringing us drinks refills without having to ask, complimentary pita after complimentary pita, and even taking the time to ask who wanted their bills split and by what grouping or couple. My friends were drinking and as soon as their glasses were 1/4 full the server was already asking what they wanted, not only good for the customer but good for the business. Often simply gestures go along way and my visit to Felico's shows what kind of impression good service leaves. I ended up leave 20% grat.
Food: Had the calamari dinner and it tasted like a calamari dinner.
Ambiance: Felicos did a reno since I last visited and it looks good.
Will be going to Felicos if I feel like Greek in Richmond. Can I say Happy Greek Restaurant!
There are not very many nice dining restaurants in Richmond so I wanted to mentioned that not only does Felicos serve good Greek food they have an excellent menu for steaks and seafood as well that are not "greek". I also come here for lunch with my coworkers and they have nice lunch specials like lamb sandwich (with delicious yam fries!) as well.
