I live in the area and eat here once a month. The food has huge portions and has always been good. Greeting/Service has never been slow, but the food can take a while. Take out pizza is also good.
Never Had any staff rude to me, but I've never been rude to them either.

10/8/2011 I had heard about Kovachis from a friend. He said the food was great and it was worth the trip. Any excuse to ride my bike. So I mounted my 1700 and was off to Lexington SC with a friend of mine, It would be a 4 hour ride. Any excuse, We arrived there at 4 in the afternoon. There was no one in the place but I kinda figured it was between meals. We sat down and was quickly approached by the server. No waiting. We ordered water because we were riding. I noticed someone came in for a take out order. Fast service.
I didn't look at the menu because I wanted a good piece of veal. My friend couldn't make up his mind so the owner, Mike who came out to greet us, said don't worry I'll make you something special and he did. You see we were talking to him and told him where we were from and how long the ride was to get there. Very friendly guy.
We got a fresh salad with a vinegarette dressing. Excellent. The garlic bread was hot and fresh.
We got our meal fast and hot. We could not believe the portions I felt 2-3 people could have eaten from that plate, HUGH.
My friends meal was sausage and peppers over a bed of Ziti.Unbelievable portion. The veal was HUMONGAS and a side of Ziti I could not even eat, just too much. The sauce was excellent. Just like mama use to make. I was going to get dessert but no way I could get it down.
We thanked Mike for a great dinner and told him it was well worth the trip and we would see him again and again and again.
On the way out the door my friend and I both agreed that " It was like we were home." Go there!

The food is wonderful. I recommend the stuffed chicken.
However, the service is HORRIBLE. The kitchen is very unorganized. There are plenty of people on the wait staff but they cannot get it together. If you don't have two hours for lunch or dinner, go somewhere else.

My husband and I just experienced the worst service at any restaurant we've ever eaten at. We waited 5 minutes for a menu, as we weren''t given one when we were told by the older female hostess to "sit anywhere" on the patio. It was another 5 minutes before our drink order was taken. Ten minutes later, after asking twice for them, our drinks came out. Salad came out in a reasonable time, but after being at the table 50 minutes without our entree we finally got the waiter's attention and told him we had gotten a phone call and needed to leave so asked for our dinner to be put in "to go" boxes. My husband then mistakenly handed the waiter his debit card to speed up the transaction. It was another 25 minutes before he brought us the food. Had we not already paid we would have left without the food. By the way, we were not the only customers having a probrem with delays. At no time was there any apology for the delay. After reading the other low rated reviews I see this is an ongoing problem at this restaurant. We will NEVER try this establishment again.

I have been a loyal costumer to this restaurant for almost a year bringing many of my friends and coworkers for the good food. I had never met the owner until tonight WOW! Between him and a middle aged woman I don??t know who was the rudest. Our group ordered a salad, spaghetti, and a special of the night, and after waiting almost 40 minutes with no food. (Also there were only about 10 people all together in the restaurant.) I noticed a group of 4 that came in at least 15 min after we put our order in got their food, and when I noticed our waiter complaining to the middle aged women why her table was going out before his I had to say something. I asked the middle aged women why they got their food first, and in a very defensive tone she said that the orders went in at the same time. When I started to say no they came in at least 15 min after her she just laid in on me that I didn??t know what I was talking about. After this went on the rest of my group decided they were not going to eat here so I pulled my card out to pay for our drinks (Tea) and the owner said you don??t owe anything just leave and don??t come back. They don't have to worry they lost a loyal customer, and many others tonight when they only had to say sorry they messed the orders up.

We went to Kovachi's last night and thoroughly enjoyed this neighborhood gem we didn't even know existed. The food and service were excellent. They have a wide variety of Italian and Greek food to choose from on the menu. Jerome was our waiter and was great. The gyro platter was huge and the pizza was excellent. Make sure you have a piece of cake!

I went to kovachi's the other night and the food was to die for and i loved it. The Owner Mike as they call him, was one of the nicest men i have ever met in my life and the food he makes is fantastic. New York style food that you will crave for weeks. The Facilty is nice and they just built on to it. It is bigger and nicer then ever before. You can plan on seeing me there again very soon. But the one problem with the restaurant is the manger "Toni" she is cruel and loud and i dont think she has a nice bone in her body. Just rude to everyone. They get rid of her and this restaurant will be 5 star.

I have eaten at Kovachi's twice and on both occasions it was a very good experience. The shrimp alfredo and house pizza is highly recommended! The food is served by large portions and is enough for several people to enjoy. My servers were very nice and quick. I was so impressed that I booked with Kovachi's for a private party. I am planning on dining at Kovachi's on a regular basis.

My friend and I had lunch there last friday. After reading all the bad reviews we were a little worried. But we walked out of there full and happy. Our food was delicious and our encounter with the server/owner was great. She was friendly and very nice. I would go back again and again.

I went to kovachi's with a coworker and took over half of my lunch back to work (fantastc food). The next day my husband and I ate my leftover lunch for our lunch. Without any real pressure I convinced him to eat there sunday for lunch. He thought it was great and I was not disapointed either. The food really is great and the portions are huge! The garlic knots (bread) are the best, the salads are fresh and crisp and the entres are freshly made and piping hot. This is my new favorite place.

Horrible, horrible, horrible!!!! Worst restaurant experience ever! We were the only table and it took forever to even be greeted. I guess that should have been a red flag. The food took forever to arrive. We asked for togo boxes that took forever and then had to get up and beg for our check. The "manager" came over to our table and asked what was wrong (in a very defensive tone" and I told her the sevice was terrible. She then proceeded to snatch the check from my husband and said she would give us a free meal. She told me I should not have rolled my eyes and then proceeded to verbally attack me in the middle of the restaurant. She was the rudest woman I've ever met. Someone needs to put this woman out of business.

On the good news side, the portions are typically huge. There is enough for two to share. I would recommend paying the $3 sharing charge. The quality of food is okay, NOT great!! The salad is very good, however. Stay away from the the Greek food, no good. The Italian dishes are so-so, not great. I can deal with okay food, but I cannot deal with a loud, overweight, obnoxious, rude woman working there. I heard them call her Toni. She does not have a clue. Really red-necks up the dining experience. If you want great food, go to Mediterranean Cafe on Main St. That will blow you away. Amazing greek and mid-eastern. Service is lovely, not tacky.

Four of us went there for lunch and from the beginning our wattress was completly rude! She hurried us through the meal, ignored us, was short tempered and made us wait to pay. She carried drinks under her arm as to keep hands free and food up agianst her chest instead of using a tray. I left a note that said "food was good but work on the service". As we were in the parking lot saying goodbyes she came out and began telling me off! It was at this time i learned she is the owner. she did not come out to ask what the problem was or how it could have been better but to tell me off, which she did!! Having worked in food service for years I was shocked at her actions! I could not believe she was in the parking lot causing such a scene over a harmless note. The food was okay, awesome bread but needless to say my friends and I will never go there again and I certainly wouldn't recommend it

My wife and, who were passing through Lexington, had an extremely dismal experience at Kovachi's and would have quietly left if we had the opportunity to leave without causing a scene. Unfortunately, as it was, we endured one of the more frustrating dining experiences we have endured during our 30+ years together. The problem started when we were greeted to a rant by a middle-age woman as we walked through the door about the fact that the party that she was expecting consisting of 10 guests had risen to more than 20 guests by the time the party arrived. We turned to leave, but she nearly tackled me, insisting that she could seat us in her "annex." That "annex," as it turns out, was an outer building that seemed to be either a converted garage or storage building. We were seated, along with about four other groups, on wire mesh patio furniture. Already, I was looking for the door. We asked how large the portions were and decided to share an order for Eggplant Parmesan, since neither of us is able to eat much (since I am diabetic and have just had radical cancer surgery, and my wife is on a weight-loss program), and we did not have any way to take home the left-overs, since we were traveling. The waitress informed us, in a somewhat hostile and hateful manner, that we must pay a $3.00 sharing fee. Her tone implied that we were being cheapskates, and she said that, once I paid for the extra salad, I might as well pay the "measley few dollars more" and "get your own entree." I told her that I was not going to argue with her, that we planned to share, even if we had to pay the $3.00 sharing fee, which, the longer she attempted to argue with me, seemed that the restaurant considers to be more of a fine for bad behavior than a service charge. I did not wish to argue with her and said so, but I insisted that we would share an order and pay the fee. The food was so-so, probably due to the vile taste in our mouths after the waitress' continual attempts to persuade me to "pony up" and get the extra entree. It reminds me of the old Woody Allen joke in which his aunt complained that the food at her hotel was horrible, ". . . and in such small portions." In our case, the food was mediocre, and there was enough to feed four people. Even after we ate all that we wanted (which was not much at that point), we left about two-thirds of the food on our plates. I don't think that the service, atmosphere, and quality of the food merits my using a star rating system. Instead, I'll use the system that I use for rating hash houses and give this restaurant one and one-half toothpicks out of five.

I have four suggestions based on our experience and my more than 30 years in which I own extremely successful and much higher-class restaurants than this: : First, never, never, never complain about your customers to other customers. Those extra 10 or so guests who showed up unexpectedly did you a great favor: They showed up at your hash house--I mean, restaurant. Isn't having 10-15 more guests than you expected better than having 10-15 fewer than you expected? Rejoice that they thought that much of you, for whatever reason we could not fathom. Second, if you have some cheesy, money-grubbing policy such as a sharing fee, even if it is only $3.00, show your guests the courtesy of plainly posting it up front, to give them the opportunity to turn around and leave gracefully. At the very least, put a notice on the menu, even though that is a bit late in the game: They really need to know that up-front. Third, for goodness sake, do not seat your overflow guests in a converted garage on patio furniture. I found myself feeling increasingly rednecky the longer I sat in that building. Either turn them away with a coupon for a free appetizer the next time they come or apologize profusely and treat them to something from the bar while they wait. One of my restaurants has stuffed mushrooms that our customers practically fight over, and I have been known to treat my customers who are waiting for a table to some of those. And fourth, never, never, never argue with your customers. Make sure they understand their options, but, once they have made their decision, allow the matter to end. Bring them their orders and do everything you can to make sure that they return. You know, the famous Edward Demings, the industrialist whose principles helped the Japanese rebuild their indistrial complex following WWII, preached a very valuable principle for businesses based on extensive customer research: A satisfied customer will tell three or four people about their experience, but a dissatisfied customer will tell more than 30 people. I would advise you to do away with the $3.00 sharing fee. You will lose more than you gain by having it. And remember that your customers are the heart and soul of your restaurant.

My husband and I went to Kovachi's for Father's Day for the Prime Rib. This was the BEST I've ever had in my whole life (62 years). I've had some good Prime Rib many times but this one buries all of them. We've been there at least 5 or 6 times and the food is consistently excellent. Everyone there is extremely friendly, courteous and attentive to serve you. And the servings are HUGE! We always have leftovers for at least 2 more meals. It is the best of Italian and Greek food. (My maternal origins are Greek.) Go expecting great food!

I was at Kovachis the night that the previous group was there and I think that they were being too loud for such a small business. The food and service are great and if you want to be loud and you have a group you should ask for the private room or sit on the porch. Possibly the manager could have handled things better but you also must remember that they cannot always make everyone happy. You are being unfair in your review because you must admit that you were unreasonably loud in that small restaurant. I encourage everyone to try this restaurant for yourselves and enjoy the food..

We love the food. The wait time wasn??t too bad. And, we had a good server who did a great job keeping up with us and a full house. However, after eating our dinner, we were told by the manager that we were "being too loud and that they had lost two tables because of us." That's not something you would normally tell customers, even if it was true. We had been laughing, but we were not using foul language or talking about inappropriate things. We were sharing baby pictures, and talking about work. So, of course, we were offended that we were spoken to in that manner. Also, there was another table, our size, which was just as loud as we were. I feel that the manager believes she was ok in saying what she did because she prefaced it by saying, "I'm sorry to tell you this..." However, as we all know...saying you're sorry does not always make things right, especially when your tone says otherwise. When we spoke to the owner of the restaurant, his response was, "I'm sorry you feel that way," and then he walked off. This was after telling us to repeat our statement because he couldn't hear us. How ironic...since our table wasn't even speaking at this point... Now, even if it was a complete lie, he should have apologized and assured us that he would take care of the situation. Instead, he blew us off. Why? Turns out, the manager is his girlfriend. Hmm... Now, while it may be ok to date at your workplace, it is not ok to treat your customers in that manner - if you want them to return. I can assure you that none of my friends and family will ever frequent Kovachi's again, which is too bad, because I really did like the food.

We love the food. The wait time wasn??t too bad. And, we had a good server who did a great job keeping up with us and a full house. However, after eating our dinner, we were told by the manager that we were "being too loud and that they had lost two tables because of us." That's not something you would normally tell customers, even if it was true. We had been laughing, but we were not using foul language or talking about inappropriate things. We were sharing baby pictures, and talking about work. So, of course, we were offended that we were spoken to in that manner. Also, there was another table, our size, which was just as loud as we were.

Although I enjoyed the food at the time, the service we received from management was reprehensible. They were rude and showed no customer service skills and when I called the owner on it he brushed me off. My friends and I got together for the first time in months to blow off some steam and enjoy a night out. We walked out of there more stressed out then we went in. To make matters worse four of us now dealing with food poisoning from last nights meal. Overall, a horrible experience. I vow never to return.

Let me say, this food is sooooooo yummy. You'll crave it week after week. my family and eat there once a week and we all love it (7 to 59) there is something for everyone. The food is rich and scrumptous. The portions will send you packing with to go boxes. We love the atmosphere its warmth, with vaulted wood beam ceilings, a fire place and some old victorian ceiling fans. You must try it. Trust me when i tell you, the food is dreamy.

Kovachi's is unique in our town, great original dishes, smart friendly wait staff, and no chain store atmosphere, but after a dozen visits, I must WARN YOU do not go in if the parking lot is full. They have two dining rooms, one by the kitchen and one in a detached former garage, and when the garage area is used for seating, it is more than a small kitchen can serve. Order continuity goes to he11, servers are hard to find, and your table will not likely see all the food come out at once while you gasp for more ale. Other than that, this is the kind of place that every town wishes for and few have. The super Italian feast is a wondrous experience, but the dessert cakes are to die for! Eight layer red velvet cake!, if you are lucky enough to be there when its red velvet cake day, will make you swoon, or at least smile and covet the take home portion (there will be some left over unless you are a sugar addicted pig). Spaghetti kid. 2/23/09

I loved this place when it first opened. Loved it when it reopened. After at least 3 bad experiences, I am finally done giving them another chance. Final straw was the luke warm "special" I got to go, along with stale garlic bread that they just poured melted oil, I mean butter, over and tried to cover with about 1/2 cup of parm cheese. It was all so gross that I'm still starving but will not eat it.

I am so done with this place!
