My family and I eat here at least once or twice a month. Hummus is amazing, and wines are delicious. My go-to meal is the veggie kabobs, served over rice. I always order a side order of potatoes, those potatoes will change your life. After checking out all the restaurants in Greektown a few times, we always go back to Athena, service is always friendly and fun.
My wife and I went to Athena on a rainy Thursday evening. The waterfall wall inside, while not necessary on this evening, added a soothing white noise. With its high ceilings and hard surfaces, I could see how the waterfall might be essential to damp the noise if all the tables were full. On our visit, the restaurant was about half full. The menu is like other Greektown restaurants, but very well executed. Egg-lemon soup -- delicious and not too lemony; lamb chops -- excellent; chicken breast stuffed with spinach and feta -- delightful, and provided lunch the next day. Service is very friendly and attentive. We were greeted at the door as if we were old friends. This place is really delightful and we will return.
I've been going to this restaurant since they opened, its my favorite, still great food and all around great place.
