Vlassis offers a menu of Greek cuisine for lunch and dinner.
Came here tonight for 3 friends birthday parties. Upon entering the restaurant, I felt a good vibe and thought that ambiance was great. That was about all that was good.
It wasn't all that busy, but they only had two waitresses working, and I believe there was also another party, and a few more tables with patrons.....service, I am sorry, but it was almost non-existent. on the half side of the table I was on, a friend of mine and I decided to share two appetizers. The saganaki and a Caesar salad. for main course I ordered a steak and lasagne. my friend next to me had greek ribs. two other friends had chicken souvlaki, and another person in the party had "Kleftiko"
our saganaki came that we shared. It was good. but then our mains came before the Caesar salad. I asked the waitress about that, and she just replied "well, right now this is what I have" the idea of an appetizer, particularly a salad is supposed to come before the main meal (or at least I think it is) anyhow, that wasn't a really big deal anyways. the steak was ok, but the lasagne was terrible. Oh, and did I mention that they didn't give me a spoon for my lasagne? We had to repeatedly ask for things....the people on my side of the table all said that the food was not really good. even when we waived down the waitresses it took them awhile to get to us. no offers on refills or anything.
Can't really blame the waitresses much when there are only two of them, and they have two parties, plus other patrons to serve.
Anyhow, don't think we will be back soon....food was not great at all, and service was certainly below par
Not Greek Village Solid, but Solid nonetheless.
The food was typical Greek fare clearly produced by the owner (a very Greek looking Gentlemen). Dolmades were very good with a nice sauce and were fresh out of the oven (read: hot). Soups, tzatziki, etc, all were well prepared, the correct temperature and relatively prompt considering they just got hit with a rush prior to our arrival.
Ambiance... it's a lovely little hold in the wall, warm, inviting. Not trendy or stylish or new but who cares? It was warm, comfortable, and the Greek Wine is priced reasonably. I loved the fact that they were proud of their community involvement with local teams.
Value... I always feel you get an excellent value with Greek food... rice, potatoes, tzatziki pita and your entre all for 15 bucks? Yep, there's value there.
Just moved into the area and will certainly be back. They don't have a menu online (I'll see if I can get some pics and upload them since Dine Here as recently added "Add a Photo!")
Right in my hood, so if you don't want to travel out and want something more local I would recommend. I went there twice. Ordered Souvalaki the first time. Nothing spectacular, size was decent. Second time I went and ordered the seafood platter for two. Size was good and fed 3 people nicely without leftovers. A bit disappointed that the seafood was mostly deep fried, potatoes are bland (it wasn't bland tasting the first time I went) but the fish was nice.
Personally I would travel a little out and go to the Greek Village on Scott Rd. But if rushed for time and convenience this is the place to go.
Their donairs are the best I have found, the bread at Vlassis is world famous is pretty good too but for some reason to me their donairs taste better as a whole.
When you pay for extra sauce and dip you get it, even a little container on the side of sauce.
I get a super donair everytime. The meat is always freshly cut and throw onto the grill for more flavour, along with the pita, the fries look and taste fresh each time, and like most places, the sauce is godly, it brings life to my mouth. The meat explodes with flavour and is really juicy.
They have good friendly service and are open very late 12 am I believe.
