Aristo's Greek Restaurant & Cafe

224 S. 1300 East, Salt Lake City, 84102
801-581-0888
Aristo’s sidewalk patio might not be perched on the Mediterranean Sea, but once you dig into the extensive mezedakia (Greek tapas) selection and other delicious dishes crafted by Chef Aristides Boutsikakis, you’ll definitely feel like you’re in Greece. There are sauteed baby octopus and thick cuts of battered and flash-fried calamari; baked eggplant whipped with olive oil; Greek meatballs; sauteed shrimp in marinara and much more. For entrees, you won’t find better pastitsio in town. Don’t feel like eating out? Try Aristo’s frozen, readyto-heat entrees and appetizers, available at your local grocer.

Beyond disappointed does not begin to cover my experience.  Everything from the service (45 minutes to get our main course) to the small portions.  The pita was excellent, but when you take into consideration that the amount given was not in proportion to the hummus then I have to even give that area a bad mark.  If the waiter had been more on his toes, then he would have offered up more pita to try and cover the long wait between appetizers and main course.  The pork souvlaki was overcooked with a burnt flavor, the Boureki at $13.95 was bland and should at best, be served as a sidedish rather than as a full meal and the Mousaka was overseasoned.  Also, when it comes to the gyros... save your money and eat at the local fast food Greek restaurant, you will save a ton of cash and leave a lot more satisfied!!
