I visited the new location on 3rd Street North in St. Petersburg today and the first thing I noticed walking into the restaurant was the extremely narrow walkway to get into the restaurant. You can barely fit two people across and there were people waiting in line outside the restaurant because there was no place to stand inside. The restaurant is dark because it covered up the open kitchen area from the restaurant before with dark bookcases - shelves. The server/cashier was not friendly at all and seemed to be extremely annoyed and frustrated at having to cashier and assist carry out customers. The gyro was not as I ordered it, with the gyro meat crispy. It was lackluster. However, the worst part was the dessert. My cannoli was moldy green on the inside. I took it back and the same cashier/hostess began to state that she did not know how this could happen. She was not friendly and was unsympathetic. She gave us back $10 cash and said that she did not know what else she can do. I will not be back to this Restaurant!!

In St. Petersburg, it's hard to find good Greek cuisine that serves more than just gyros. At the Greek in downtown St. Petersburg, you can get an array of Greek cuisine like spanikopita and mousaka. Best of all, their prices are reasonable (lunch can cost $6-$10) and service is fast and friendly.
The best thing about the Greek is that they offer "American" dishes as well, so that diners can bring guests with a less adventurous palate. Another plus is that they offer healthy dishes, such as grilled chicken salads as well as yummy fried comfort foods.Though the restaurant itself is small, it's always clean and bright, and a pleasure to visit for a quick lunch downtown.

PROS: Fast, friendly service, always an excellent meal!
CONS: Outside eating right near heavy traffic, inside music not so good.
