Our first time to this delightful place. Very helpful server who allowed us to linger for two hours. Beautiful, inviting, spacious dining area. Reasonably priced 3 courses for restaurant week, but think it might be overpriced otherwise. Halibut wrapped in grape leaves outstanding. Lamb truly succulent, but accompanied by very salty chick peas. Custard in grain pie was delicious, but the phyllo was a bit soggy. Bread pudding was made with prunes, actually a favorite of ours, but it did not work very well in this dish. We will probably return as the experience, as a whole, was very good.

Omega has been a regular stop for me for a few years now, it is such a welcome addition to the 'hood. From the bright Mediterranean colors to the deep Mediterranean flavors, this restaurant has it all working for themselves. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and can answer all your questions about the menu and make solid recommendations. Don’t miss the inventive cocktails, these are a surprise.

Really loved the food here. The tasting menu was outstanding. Personally, I think I went in a bit too hungry so I wasn't completely full after our 3 course meal. However, I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a great modern twist on some Greek classics.

Can I buy the pita for entertaining at home? It is out-of-this-world delicious! All of our sharable small plates and larger selections were amazing. I brought guests visiting from out of town and they were quite impressed by our meal, service, and ambiance.

Went with friends who are vegetarian. Frequently it is hard to find a varied and interesting selection of veggie dishes, but Ouzeri offered a great lineup.

Stand outs were the tzatiki sauce and freshly made pitas, fennel fritters and butter beans with feta.

Added bonus: the bartender was concocting interesting drinks including two standouts made with shrubs. Definitely try the ouzo and shrub cocktail.

This place doesn’t get the attention, or wait list, that its next door neighbor Spinasse gets, but is well worth your time and $$.

We are repeat customers because of the overall experience. Every detail was accounted for. Big compliments to the server who did a wonderful job! We never waited for more than 5 minutes to be attended to, right from when we walked in to when the bill was given us when we were ready. Keep up the wonderful customer experience... and of course, the tasteful food!

Amazing food. Found this place during Restaurant Week and knew we had to come back for more!
We chose the tasting menu this time and it didn't disappoint. Food was excellent. The waitress was amazing and knew her stuff about wine (so did our last waiter).

Highly recommend.

Omega Ouzeri was always one of the best Mediterranean/Greek restaurants in Seattle. Now with Chef Tana Mielke in the kitchen it has become one of the very best dining experiences nationally. Modern Greek cuisine with a sophisticated Wine list and wine savvy servers. Not to be missed. Authentic at its very best.

We went on Christmas Eve, which may be an unusual night for this restaurant, but we were not happy with our experience. The food was mostly good and our server was nice, but everything else was not up to our expectations. The prices were very high for what we received and the dishes were not delicious. The timing of our courses was way off—we had to wait 40 minutes between our appetizers and our main course, even when we made it clear that we needed to leave for a show. I was disappointed because I had heard great things about this restaurant, but I don't think we'll go back.

Great location, place, service and food. Paid parking is available in the building, if you can't find street parking. We ordered multiple dishes (appetizer, salad and entrée) and share it family style, a couple of the entrée (lamb and octopus) was warm vs. hot.

We tried the 3 course menu for Restaurant Week. Excited to see Moussaka on the menu - have trouble finding that at any local Greek restaurants. Food was good. They had a large selection of Greek wines and we had a great wine at a very reasonable price. Server was very friendly but a little spacey. She brought the wrong appetizers and then forgot to bring the wine we'd ordered until we gave her a gentle reminder. But minor inconveniences! We enjoyed the meal.
