Issaquah >Tantalus Restaurant
Awful Food. Went in for lunch on a Sat. Ordered Spanakopita, which was cold, and looked like it was from the day before, if not older. The vegetables also looked like they were from the day before. The broccoli was more brown than green. The potatoes were okay. The service was okay, but the waiter never came back and asked how our meal was. When he asked if I wanted a to go box, I stated no. When he saw that most the food was still on my plate, he should have asked if there was a problem with the food. Had a 50% off 2nd entree coupon, and now I know why they are having to send them out. Maybe they should spend the money they pay for the coupons, and get a new cook. Didn't complain, as I was with a client, but will be writing a letter to the Owner/Manager.
Very disappointed. 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.
excellent greek food and service!. i found Tantalus to be a restaurant that i will come back to. the food was delicious, expertly prepared, and served with true hospitality. our host was superb ~ very interesting conversationalist, very helpful with explanations of the menu items, and very warm. attentive without hovering. my party and i had such a blast and will definitely be taking friends and family there!
One of the Best Restaurant Experiences I've Ever Had!. 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!
The best!. They are the best little family owned restaurant ever!
Cute little restaurant. 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!
love the food and service. OMG!!! we love the food and service.We love the flaming cheece with pite it's so yammmmm
Overly priced for average food.
Overly priced for average food, with slow service.
There?s so many better places to support, I won?t be returning anytime soon.
As Close To Greece as the Eastside Gets.
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 place is HORRIBLE!!!!! Terrible customer service and rude staff.. 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.
