We ordered take-out from Tantalus through Dinner Delivery Plus. After carefully reading the menu, we specifically ordered dishes with no rice and extra vegetables(because we are not able or eat wheat or refined carbs). The Pesto Chicken dish arrived with pasta in it (not stated on the menu) and the Lemonato Pork was breaded and deep fried to the point that it was rubbery and dry (literally could not chew it). Also, the menu stated that there was a white wine sauce on the Lemonato. There was a clear absence of a sauce of any kind. Finally the Mousaka was horrible. The menu stated that it was topped with a creamy beshemel sauce and parmesan. Instead it had a strange 1/4 inch crust on the top (like polenta), reminding me of a greek shepards pie. We called dinner delivery plus and they handled the problem beautifully. The representative contacted the resturant on our behalf and we were refunded for the Lemonata and Pesto Chicken (since they did not arrive as described). The resturant reported that they have always done their dishes that way and they always put pasta in the Pesto Chicken dish - Really? Pasta and rice in the same dish? If I could give them 0 stars I would. Dinner Delivery Plus, on the other hand, gets 5 stars.

I deeply enjoyed my time at the Tantalus due to our waiter's attentive service. He was enjoyable to talk with and explained much about Greek food, where he comes from, the culture differences between there and America, etc. etc. He was not intrusive, but only made real conversation when we initiated it. The atmosphere was inviting and warm, and the food was extraordinarily good. Very authentic, original, inviting place. I went with my Husband and my Mom for a fun dinner out and we are very glad we tried the Tantalus. We will be back!

They have a wonderful selection of delicious reasonably priced food. The service is great when you take into account that there is only one waiter serving the whole place. They are sooo friendly! I feel like family every time I come which has been for the past six years. Don't listen to the negative nancys!

Located in Gilman Village, Tantalus is a good choice for a romantic dinner out. They offer the traditional Greek dishes and a good wine selection and the service has always been suberb.

Looking for authentic Greek food while you?re on the Eastside? Then you have to go to Tantalus in Issaquah.
This family owned bistro is friendly and inviting. The dishes are proportioned and delicious. Not to be missed is their Tzatziki sauce. Very reasonable prices, great wine list are the norm.
The friendly proprietor is always there, and the pride of ownership shows.

This is not a gyro joint, this is the real deal. They have wonderful dishes of authentic greek food and excellent service as well as a great ambiance.

I read several bad reviews about this place but decided to give it a try anyway. In retrospect, I should?ve paid attention to the past reviews. This place is absolutely HORRIBLE! Not only is the food mediocre, at best, the staff and owner are incredibly rude. I was yelled at, insulted and bullied when I tried to use my 2008 Entertainment Book coupon (it was a valid coupon and they should have honored it). When I tried to discuss the matter with them, they flat out ignored me and threw my bill at me. Don?t ever go here. . . you will definitely regret it if you do.

My experience here was not positive. Service was slow, food was below average for greek fare. The prices were too high for what you received. Would not go again.

If this is your idea of perfect Greek/Mediterranean food, you should get out more.
I've been to this restaurant 3 times, and the food is very mediocre and the service spotty.
Try the Mediterranean Kitchen on Bellevue Way.
