Greek
Ikaros Greek Restaurant brings traditional cuisine straight from the island of Ikaria. This family style eatery features fresh menu items that are made daily from scratch. The combination of this dedication to delicious Greek food and the cozy interior are two of the main reasons Ikaros Greek Restaurant is so beloved in Oakland. At Ikaros Greek Restaurant, the Oktopodi Sti Skara comes highly recommended; it’s octopus cooked over the grill and served chilled with a splash of balsamic vinaigrette. There are also more casual offerings like the chicken gyro sandwich, the lamb souvlakia, pork souvlakia and a bifteki platter featuring ground meats, steak fries and more.

    We wanted to order mussels - no mussels. There was another dish I can't remember that we wanted, also not available. So we each ordered the Gyros stacker. And a stacker it was. There was so much food that we took a box home. While we each had lamb gyros, mine had chicken in it(!!) and I wanted the fries, my companion ordered no fries, but got them. The restaurant was pretty empty so the waiter should have remembered it. The good thing was a salad with very fresh greens and I had a white from Rhodes that was excellent.

    Food was excellently prepared from the freshest produce. The falafel was the freshest I’ve ever eaten. The combo pricing wasn’t very clear with some portions too small and others came as full portions when only single ($7) asked for. Bill ended up a lot more than expected. Service was good. Recommended for anyone who loves authentic Greek food.

    Found this restaurant on YELP…We had never been to Ikaros and we were looking for a place in Oakland to take an “out of town” friend to dinner. We all enjoyed our entrees and the servers were so nice and friendly! Will be back!

    Had a great experience last year at this restaurant and wanted to go back for Mother’s Day this year. The restaurant was not full, but we waited over an hour for our food and the order was wrong when it came, and one of our party had to wait longer to eat. It appears that they were prioritizing door dash pick ups and ignoring the dine in guests, when it really should be the other way around.

    Something has happened to this restaurant - the gyros used to be delicious. This time our service was really bad - our appetizer was served after I complained that my partner had his entree but none of my food nor our appetizer had been served. When my gyros salad finally arrived, the gyros was over cooked and dried out. Too bad - this place used to be great. Now it feels like it is failing.

    Ate outside which is nice, had 2 orders of Spanakopita and a Mini House Salad. Saw later on the menu that I could have ordered the same as a dinner and would have gotten mashed Potatoes. No matter I was full when I left, food was good as was the service.

    The food was great! Everything cooked to perfection. What was even better was the staff: always filling our water glasses, our server was very attentive- answering questions and providing us with whatever we needed. He was the best! We were there early so it was quiet. Hadn’t been there for a while but definitely coming back.

    Food was great! We sat outside which was fine. The new owners have really spiffed up the interior and the painting on the outside is lovely. My only criticism is the wine list. I first ordered the Ca. Rose and ended up sending it back. The choices of Ca whites and rose needs to expand.

    Having eaten in many Greek restaurants around the world, including Greece, this was a huge disappointment. Service was slow, food was mediocre and prices were crazy. Lunch was over $100 per person. More of a Diner atmosphere than restaurant !

    Very good, very satisfying Greek food, as good as we've had at more expensive Greek restaurants in San Francisco or Palo Alto. No disappointments among the dishes (gigantes, keftedes, moussaka, and extraordinarily good desserts, a much-better-than usual baklava and a galaktoboureko that was incredibly delicious, probably the best Greek dessert we've ever had, including in Greece), and prices were very reasonable. We'd ordered a decent red wine from Napa, not finding a Greek red listed, but I'd simply overlooked the separate section listing the Greek wines. We would have ordered one--they can be excellent and great value for the price--but our wonderfully friendly and accommodating server (perhaps the female owner) generously poured tastes of two for us, and both were very good, particularly the xinomavro, more elegant than the Conundrum we'd ordered. We'll definitely be back; in fact, I think we'll insert this restaurant into our regular rotation of restaurants of various cuisines and ethnicities.

    Tried Ikaros for lunch during Oakland Restaurant Week. Live nearby but never dined here. The offerings were good samplings of Greek cuisine. Had dolmades and spanakopita. For main we had the falafel pita and grilled salmon pita. They were all delicious. The presentation was even nice for such a simple lunch. We will be back.

    Great for a family outing! All of the food was amazing and delicious. Especially the galakteoboureko. It was warm and the cinnamon and sugar dusting put it over the top! Loved the lamb and the grilled octopus. Wish my stomach was bigger but it was great to take home and finish off.

    It was my wife and I first time here Gyro plate was great, generous portions of stacked meat. My only gripe was the yogurt tasted a bit like sour cream. I’ve been to many Greek restaurants and they usually have a similar taste profile so a bit of a let down. There were so many delicious meals on the menus so I will be returning someday.

    Food is definitely outstanding-we have been going to Opa in Walnut Creek for the flaming cheese-Ikaros is closer. The only improvement is if the gyros meat is a little thicker.

    Service awful, too busy with takeaway orders to pay attention to those dining in the restaurant. Food very average and certainly not worth the price. Wine also overpriced. Cafe rather than restaurant style environment.

    Ikaros Greek RestaurantResponded on January 13, 2022Sorry you've had this experience, we strive to prioritize our dine in customers. However please know that it has been extremely difficult to run a restaurant during the pandemic and without out to go orders we would not have survived this period. We hope you will give us another try once we are fully opened. Thank you for your patronage...

    Our first meal here, not counting takeout a year ago, and we enjoyed everything. We started with the spanikopita appetizer (shared), then had one order of moussaka and one of the lamb chops, both also shared. The chops were pricey at around $32 but it was two huge chops plus a lot of yummy veggies. The wines by the glass were good and reasonably priced. It was a very good dinner.

    The waiter was trying but couldn't seem to get it together. Didn't get our order right. The lamb was also cooked WELL rather than medium as I specifically asked. And the beet/feta salad didn't have any of the roasted garlic that was listed on the menu description. I reserved a patio table because it was a nice day. But the hostess insisted that I not walk through the restaurant with my Service dog. I explained that he was service. He was even wearing his vest but whatever, I didn't feel like educating her on ADA . Next time. My friend arrived when I did and I just wanted to have lunch and enjoy the day. The puff pastry desert was good and the salad fresh tasting. Oh yeah. I went to this restaurant dreaming of the calamari appetiser that I noticed on the website menu. They didn't have any calimari. IDK. I may give the place another try since it's in the neighborhood. Not a good first impression/experience.

    We love Ikaros, have for >10 years. But last night we took a table for outdoor seating and it seems our server got "distracted"?? It was a struggle to get service even though the restaurant was very quiet at that time.
