Never heard of this place, but definitely glad I went there. Very good food - and unusual, too. It's rare to see a five-star Greek restaurant... most of them are $5 wraps and other junk-food like that... but this is true fine-dining, while it retains the real cuisine flavor.

My mother visited me once and I brought her to this restaurant for dinner. We were very happy with the service they offered and the quality of food they served us. The friendly staff plus the very appetizing cuisine truly made our day.

Tried Kyma during Buckhead Restaurant week and was able to experience the hype. Delicious, quality seafood uniquely prepared- yummy. The frothy sauce enhances the tender and extremely tasteful salmon and halibut that melts in the mouth. The presentation was great. Everything from the apps to the entrees were excellent as are the appropriately proportioned desserts. Come for the food and come for the crowd. Great for people watching. Decor is over the top, Vegas/Disney does Greek. Service is very slow. Be prepared to wait.

Pros: quality, preparation, taste

Cons: slow service, gaudi decor

Very peaceful, elegant atmosphere. Service is very attentive. Try the wood grilled octopus, it's awesome! Disappointing that they only have Greek wines.

I really like the host and his manner to greet customers - he is really genuine and clearly does it not just for money but also enjoys what he is doing.

Arrived at 8pm on Saturday night, with reservation and were immediately seated. The restaurant was not particularly full, which is surely the result of the depressed economic situation. We were confronted with the dreaded 'have you been here before' question and answered No (true), but indicated that we were familiar with Greek cuisine. I certainly would say that the wait staff here are quite familiar with the food, and very eager to offer opinions. We tried to gently indicate that we preferred to study the menu and make our own choices, and met with some success. Waitperson went away to get our drinks, and we examined the menu, very quickly determining that we wanted the mezze dinner with the 'special fish', as they had Pompano on the menu.

Waiter returned, and we choose the country greek salad, the zucchini with greek cheese, the mixed seafood stew, and the lamb pie, to go with our pompano & greek fries. We contemplated the wine list for a while, and choose a 2007 voigner wine and really enjoyed it.

Before our own selections began to arrive, the waiter bought out a small bite 'from the chef' - a wonderful little swordfish carpaccio, just a few bites, but clean, crisp flavor seasoned perfectly with a bit of crunch from what looked like fried rice noodles or vermicelli underneath. YUM! Things were definitely off to a great start.

Every morsel was wonderful. We let our waiter, who was anxious about the lamb pie's potential to muddle up the seafood flavors, determine the order of serving, and he did a great job, although in hindsight I'd probably change things up just a bit, and have the salad first, alongside the pita and dips.

We enjoyed the complimentary pita and spreads, and next slurped up every bit of the fish stew - the flavors were balanced wonderfully and you could taste the different bits of fish, mussels, clams, shrimp, etc. The zucchini were delicately fried and delicious to have alongside. Next came the greek salad, full of juicy tomatoes, olives, cucumbers and peppers. Yummy, and a great way to clear our tastebuds for the light and delicate grilled pompano. In retrospect, the greek fries were just a bit too much food, but delicious as well.

The waiter choose to save the lamb pie for last, and it was spectacular. Wonderful, deep lamb flavor, and melt-in-your mouth texture.

After all that, you'd think we wouldn't have room for dessert, but hey, this was our anniversary, so we went for it. I ordered the tasting sampler with yogurt & honey, the greek doughnut, and a custardy thing, and husband had the night's special, a banana/chocolate mousse thing. He ate every scrap of the banana/chocolate thingy, and I left very little on my plate as well. The custardy thing was unremarkable, but I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I tasted the yogurt and honey, but realized I couldn't be dead after I had a bite of that little, *perfect* doughnut. Very small servings (and all that I wanted - no guilt over not finishing a dessert!), but super-intense flavors. It was just exactly the right ending for a wonderful meal, and incredibly, the waiter told us that the restaurant was comping our dessert as an anniversary present.

Yes, it was pricey (but considering what we got, I feel we *more* than got our money's worth). Drinks, wine, and what amounted to a 7-course meal for two at this level of quality were WELL under $100 per person with tip.

The decor was beautiful, and did indeed remind us of a little place we had lunch at Delphi on our honeymoon 16 years ago, with the gauzy white curtains, blue accents, plastered walls - cleaner, but very reminiscent.

We did not leave in the least bit hungry - in fact, we practically had to roll out the door.

We will return often for our special occasions, and I'll happily recommend Kyma to those who have adventurous palates.

Me and my friends were excited about spending an evening in buckhead, being that we work in the restaurant business as well. We showed up at kyma around 7:30, and heres were the night went down hill. First of all the hostess couldnt be bothered to recognize our presence, so we made our way to the bar. The drinks were over priced and service was not friendly. First we ordered some shrimp in tomato sauce, it was bland an cold. Ive heard this chef is supposed to be on of the best in atlanta...Then we ordered the pan fried cheese, there was so much lemon on it , it was inedible. the we ordered some lamb chops, again cold and unseasoned. over all the service was bad, the food sucked, and i am now 65 dollars poorer and unsatisfied. i will never eat at this place again, they should be emberrased to charge so much for crappy food....landmark diner down the street was better.

Each year my husband and I try a new restaurant and a new meal for our anniversary. If we find a new restaurant we love, we add it to our circular. KYMA is NOT that restaurant.

We were not greeted by anything other than glares from the 'tweens' manning the hostess stand.

We were seated in a high traffic area.

Our server mumbled the specials and critiqued all orders that were contrary to his palate. (my husband ordered a wine that the server felt should have been accompanied with an Eye-Roll and then lectured him on which wine he should order). I ordered a Gin & Tonic and one would have thought I wasn't speaking English.

Fortunately, the In-Training Server, noticed our irritation and took over. She, in comparison to the prior server, was very professional but since she was new, lacked expertise on menu items.

The food was lovely but not great enough to make up for the poor service which, in this economy, we should demand.

We are Greek visiting Atlanta from LA. We try to eat in Greek restaurants in different cities across the USA and KYMA is up there as one of our favorites!!! The food is very authentic and delicious! My husband thought that many of the dishes are as good or better than his Mother's cooking. Don't miss the octopus and the loucumades (forgive the spelling) melts in your mouth. We would highly recommend Kyma to Greek or non-Greek diners!

We go Kyma often but probably not often enough. Every time we are there we get great food, service and value. This is the best Greek food in the town and they deserve the fame.

My family and I went to Kyma for a graduation celebration and birthday dinner. Some of us wanted to order a beer and asked our snooty waiter what Greek beers were available. He did not know what was available and we waiting 20 minutes for an average beer (we never saw what the brand/bottle was) that tasted like Miller Lite. The waiter was very condescending and when ordering a beer he replied with "My name is Andrei." The food was described by our waiter as authentically Greek and the best Greek in Atlanta, but the food was overall bland and something anyone could make in their own kitchen. The lamb chops were nice, but the "Greek" fish dishes were very bland, tiny portions, the presentation was boring, and the bill was astronomical. The service was extremely impersonal. The photos of the restaurant on the internet are very misleading. The interior of the restaurant looks just like any other, nothing spectacular. My dining experience at Kyma was hugely disappointing, and I will never eat there again (unless they pay ME!).

I had never experienced a Greek restaurant until we went to Kyma. It was absolutely incredible, all around. The wait staff who waited on us were great. We had about 20 people in our group, and they took exquisite care of us. The food kept coming and it was all wonderful. My favorite was the lamb chops and, of course, the baklava! The best I've ever had. And those little donut holes with honey (I can't remember what they are called). Ohhhhhhhh heaven! Do they train the bees to make that honey. I've never had honey that tasted so good! Melt in your mouth. I would recommend Kyma to anyone wanting to experience the best of something different!

My partner and I decided to celebrate Valentines day at Kyma. My partner is Greek so I wanted to do something special by taking him to a Greek Restaurant. We walked in and were takend away with the beauty of the decor and the charm of the live greek music. Our server Katie was amazing and talked us through their special valentines day menue. The food was some of the best we've ever had, my partners grandfather was a greek chef and he said that Kyma was better than his grandfathers cooking. We were sad to see our food gone at the end of the meal cuz everything was amzing. I hghly recomend kyma to everyone knwoing that it's a great place to go and amazing staff and service

My family and I ate at Kyma last week and had one of the most offensive dining experiences I?ve ever suffered through. It all began with a 45 minutes wait after showing up promptly for our reservations. During this time, a waiter from the bar took our drink orders, yet refused to provide a wine list because "it is Greek, and you will not understand it". As I suspected, the wines he selected were $16 a glass. The night only got worse when we were seated, what seemed to be inside the kitchen, where my mother's chair was mercilessly bumped by every passing waiter. I won't bother detailing the other 27 things that went wrong, from the pushy waiter to the mediocre, burnt, and over-priced food; however, the coup de grace came at the end of the evening, after 15 minutes of waiting for the valet to retrieve our car, I was forced to help him first find the keys, then locate the car in the parking lot. Believe me, the bad food was the smallest of Kyma?s problems.

Kyma is my absolute favorite special occasion restaurant in the city. The tasting menu is the way to go, everyone at the table must participate, though. From the perfectly fried yet creamy centered lobster keftedes, to the savory and juicy lamb chops, the menu and execution are fabulous. How could one not be happy under a starry sky, as if in the Greek Isles? Service is helpful and attentive, as well. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Kyma is definitely my favorite restuarant in Atlanta, possibly even in the US. I travel 100% for work, and eat out every night. I would eat here every night of the week if I did not mind expanding my waistline. I questioned whether the Octopus appetizer was really from the ocean, or a slice of heaven. The Lamb is also a must try. It is a perfect date spot, because you can sit on the patio, and cuddle up next to your date on a couch, and get away from the noisy crowd inside. Maybe I should invest in some elastic waist pants... but then I guess it would be hard to find anyone who would want to be seen with me at this fabulous place.

Cons: The chef will not come cook for me at home!

I'm going to be honest. While I expected my dining experience at Kyma to be satisfactory due to the reputation of Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, my expectations were exceeded from the moment I walked through the door. After being blown away by the restaurant's beautiful interior, my friends and I were seated immediately and greeted soon after. Our server, her name regretfully slips my mind, was more knowledgeable about this Greek cuisine than any server I've ever had at an American restaurant. She suggested several items, and we were so glad we went with her advice. I went to Greece several years ago, and the Spanokopita was just as good here as it was across the ocean. Kyma is, without a doubt, a truly authentic Greek restaurant. Everything I tasted was phenomenal. I couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. I hope to make it back soon, and until I do, I will tell everyone I know to visit. Props to Buckhead Life! Bravo!

My husband and I recently dined at Kyma for our five year anniversary. Everything from the phone call to make the reservation to leaving the restaurant was wonderful. We had 7 p.m. reservations on a Friday, but were seated right away. Our server Katie was spectacular, and her knowledge of the food and wine was superb. We started off with spanakopita and greek spreads, both were yummy. I ordered the lamb chops and my husband ordered the lobster. Let me just say that it was the best lamb I have ever eaten. Everything was perfectly seasoned and cooked. We finished off our meat with the loukamades. Loukamades are like greek donuts served in honey and they were delicious.

This is my new favorite restaurant in Atlanta.

P.S. To the "TRUE FOODIE" below Chef Pano, the executive chef at Kyma, is Pano Karatassos' son.

I have been to Kyma many times in the past. The wine list and the service are excellent. The food was better in the past visits. It seems like the quality of food going downward. If they want the same loyal customers to come back, they need to have the same amazing food of the past. I will give it one more try in the future.

After reading so many mixed reviews, thought I would add our experience to the list. We had Saturday night reservations. It wasn't our anniversary or birthday-we just wanted to celebrate the fact that my class was finally over. We were greeted right away and shown to our table. Rodrigo was very friendly and knowlegeable about the menu, especially after he found out that neither one of us had been there before. We tried the meze tasting (without the whole fish) and loved most of the dishes. As other reviewers have said, the grilled octopus is simply amazing. I would go back just for that dish alone. We ordered lamb chops and prime rib steak and asked that it be cooked med-well. The only negative to our experience was that both the meats came out under-cooked. We ate the lamb as is but had to send the prime rib steak back as it was almost raw. The second time it came out, it was still mostly raw but we didn't have the heart to send it back again so we just left it on our plate. Rodrigo noticed it right away and insisted on taking it back. The chef then sent out a complimentary salad since we had to wait and the manager personally came out to apologize and to assure that everything else was to our liking. As for the wine, Rodrigo recommended the Palivou Chardonnay which is fantastic. The baklava was a little too sweet (even for baklava) for our liking but the pistachio ice-cream was great. Five stars for superb service and I would say 3/12 to 4 stars for food. Can you get better value for Mediterranean food in Atlanta? Probably. But you certainly can't beat the service or atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.

Okay, so my husband and I went to Kyma Tuesday night for our 3 year anniversary dinner and I have to say I wasn't impressed. We went to Greece two years ago and truly experienced outstanding greek food, so needless to say, we were a little hesitant to try Kyma because we know authentic Greek food and I wasn't convinced that Kyma would be authentic. Some of the dishes were authentic....some lacked the original luster found in the greek isles. So, let me start with the Service: The limo service was terrible....waiting 10 minutes to drop off our car and 15 mintues at the end of our meal to get our car. After we were seated at our table, we waited for 10 minutes before we were greated or even offered a glass of water. Our waitress finally came over (with no water) and said that she would be "right back" to take our drink order. 10 minutes later ( a total of 30 minutes at this point after arriving in the parking lot of the restaurant) we were asked what we would like to drink. My husband ordered us 2 glasses of champagne (since we were celebrating). She told us that when we put in our food order we would need to put it in all at once so that "Chef Pano" could properly prepare the dishes and bring them out in course order. I am a TRUE FOODIE and I know that "Chef Pano" wasn't in that kitchen that night. I hate it when the waitstaff lies or talks down to the guests! I'm not an idiot...I know Pano has 10 other restaurants in Atlanta and he isn't ALWAYS in the restaurant I'm visiting at the exact time I'm there. So, don't try to make me feel all special! Anyways, the food was okay, if you don't mind Burnt Pita bread!!! We also ordered 2 bottles of good wine and my husband had to sit for 15 minutes with his glass EMPTY before the waitress came over and refilled it! I EXPECT much better service than this especially on a slow Tuesday night.

Cons: Terrible Service

...and you'll love this place - the grilled octopus is delicious The staff is very knowledgeable when it comes to the wine list (a plus if you're unfamiliar with Greek wines). The atmosphere is relaxing and inviting. While it may not be the best value for Mediterranean food in town, it's great place for a nice meal that isn't "nouvelle american/french."

Pros: Appetizers/Mezze, wine list, service, valet parking, atmosphere

Cons: main-course items are hit-and-miss

.

Two of my friends and I waited in the bar for our third friend to arrive. Finally, he was running so late that we gave up and got our table. The main server was personable and not the worst server ever, but she was a little intrusive. So were the associated waitstaff. Just a little too noticeable, if you know what I mean.

We ordered two meze for the table: the wood grilled octopus and the selection of spreads with pita points. I knew that I wouldn't like the spreads, so I didn't try them but the others thought they were ok. The octopus was very tasty. I had never tried it before, so I didn't know what to expect. Our main courses were a little disappointing, I think. I had the lemon chicken, and it was basically two chicken wings on a bed of barley risotto. I liked the flavor of the chicken, but not the risotto. My friends seemed to enjoy the food more than I did, though they also remarked on the service not being the best. I spent $40, and ended up eating a bowl of cereal when I got home because my stomach was growling too loudly for me to sleep!

Buckhead Life Group always brings the best of the best dining to Atlanta. We love Atlanta Fish Market, and Kyma is right there with it. Walk in, and it's like walking onto a Greek Isle, with the beautiful Mediterranean swirling around. Reservations are a must. Just let one of Pano's sons, set the table for you, because service here is tops. We didn't really know where to begin, with our wonderful waiters suggestion, mezze/grazing small plates. Hands down, the best grilled calamari we've ever had. And the fried cheese was next. Perfect, with a great Greek wine pairing. My entree was the whole Snapper, topped with Greek Olives/Feta/Roasted Red Peppers. The Gods should be so lucky. Rounding things out, was fresh made Yogurt, drizzled with Honey. Opa! Will return soon.

First Review: Beautiful place and a good dining experience. It wasn't the best food I've ever eaten, but I enjoyed it and will probably go back.

The second time: I wanted to treat someone to Kyma who is from another country and has never been there before. He and I love to try new things and I enjoy introducing him to different experiences in "American" dining since he has only lived here for a few years. YES, I know that Kyma is Greek but a variety of ethnic foods is the beauty of American cuisine.

Anyway, I called ahead for reservations. I was told that there was a dress code. Fine. We got dressed up and arrived there only to find people in jeans and other casual atire. Our server could not have been worse. What is it with servers that work in some of these upscale places? I think ours was incredibly arrogant and condescending. During the course of the meal, he made me feel so uncomfortable. He seemed to be amused by us for some reason and he would never take his eyes off me whenever he approached the table. It seemed as if he were trying to stare me down. He did offer to send my fish back which he acknowledged was a bit rare (something I don't enjoy), but even then I was actually afraid let him do it. When we looked over the dessert menu, we asked him what some were like and what he thought was a good choice. He kept trying to push the baklava dessert on us, but I informed him in a polite way that I was not interested in that because it is something I could get on a daily basis and it has never been one of my favorite desserts. He expressed surprise when I said that we eat a lot of Greek food when dining out (but not anything that is of the same caliber as Kyma). Perhaps he thought we were hicks. Anyway, his demeanor changed a little towards us and he became a tad bit nicer when my guy told him that he was actually from Russia. Funny how some Americans respect foreigners more. Or maybe the Russian thing scared him a little. Who knows.

The restaurant is great, when you first walk in you get an amazing feeling of blue. The lights and the color make it a warm and welcoming restaurant. The lights that look like stars on the ceiling really set the mood. The waiter was nice, but seemed like one of those people who was not in a good mood or in a bad mood.He was fine to sum it up, and no complaints. The appetizers were great. The octopus and the spinach triangles, all I can say is wow. Please try these two items, plus all of the other appetizers. The octopus was full of flavor, and the spinach triangles came out hot and full of feta cheese goodness. Now, the main course. What great lamb this place has. My girlfriend tried the lamb shank which was as tender as anyone could ever imagine it to be. The only problem I had was with my fish. I was told to get the dover sole but opted for the Loup de Mer. Again, the fish was not bad I just wish I would have tried the dover sole. The capers were a bit arbitrary and did not really enhance the flavor, although the lemon provided added some goodness to it. The dessert comes last of course, and the lakamatas(forgive the spelling if incorrect) were insane. If they had a lakamata stand I would could an entire box of those things. They had a bit of honey on them and they were just the right warmth! Wow, so good it is hard to get over the taste. I ask all guys to go this place just once for all of the courses, and continue to go for the appetizers!

We had a gift certificate to Buckhead Life and decided to try Kyma since we've tried most of the others. We are not big fans of the Buckhead Life Group of restaurants as a whole. This was probably the best restaurant of the group that we've eaten at, but for the price we will not be going back. The service was great, which is to be expected. The atmosphere was nice as well. The food was just OK though. It was very salty and really nothing that out of the ordinary. We spent $120 and had the meza dinner (choice of 5 small plates to share), 2 martinis and 2 beers. Personally, I think you can get much better food for much less money at other Atlanta Greek restaurants, they may not be as fancy though.

As with all of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, Kyma serves creative, pallatable dishes that you won't find just anywhere. I always expect something different when I try one of these restaurants, but I must admit I have been putting off trying Kyma for a long time. I wasn't sure if Greek food was something I could really get excited about, but I finally made a point to go and see if this place could deliver the level of quality and service I have come to expect from all of the Buckhead Life restaurants.

I was not disappointed in the least. In fact it was terrific and consistent in every way with my previous experiences with other Buckhead Life restaurants.

We loved the octopus (unexpected surprise), and the fried cheese appetizer, and our entrees were different yet unpretentious. I will be back.

From the service, to the food, to the beautiful ambience, Kyma was fabulouse. I went with a party of four on Saturday night. They were extremely busy so we were asked to have a seat at the bar until they could get us seated, which was great! We sat out on the patio (which is beautifully lit with candles) and dabbled in the extensive martini list that they have. The Hostest was so nice and personally came and got our party when they were ready for us. Our server was very knowledgable of the greek culture as well as the menu (which really added to the ambience) and recommended wonderful apps. The food and wine was amazing. We left full and satisfied. One of the managers was greek and was extremely personable and entertaining. I highly recommend Kyma to everyone who would like to experience the highlights of Atlanta!

Kyma delivered the most delectable meal we have had in ages. You really must try the meza (appetizer) dinner -- you get five appetizers (your choice) and one whole fish for $42 per person. Some items have a slight additional charge -- like the octopus and sole -- but everything was absolutely amazing and well worth the cost. Service was also top notch. Go early to avoid the crowds and get the best service, and try the pomegranite martini for a real treat!

though the food was good and the service good, there isn't much about this restaurant, other than the location, to make it special. i guess it depends on what you are looking for. if your over 45, you'd probably like it more than i did.

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on a Saturday night and had a great evening. Although we were not seated promptly and our drinks took over 20 minutes, I enjoyed their signature Kyma Cosmo and all of our food. One of our apps were wrong and my salad was never delivered, but at the end of the night I checked and it was not on the bill, so our server obviously forgot it all together. Oh well... The food was still great, even though the service was okay. Our server was informative about all of the dishes and had great recommendations.

The food was remarkable. The lamb chops are the best I have ever had but, the service was awful. We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time. Also the service was extremely slow and the manager was rude. This by far, was the worst service I have ever had at a Buckhead Life Group restaurant. We did have a large party (8) and that may have contributed to the slow service. However, no matter how large our party is my drink should never be empty (it took 20 minutes to get another drink) and the manager should never be rude to a customer. It is a shame that the service was so bad that night. I really enjoyed the food and would like to go back but, I can not after being treated so badly.

Went with my gf. The interior design was very nice...but I think the pictures on the web made it a lot grander than it was. The service was INCREDIBLE. Waitress was very attentive, hostess however was condescending. Unlike NY or Cali, we were the only asians in the restaurant. Kinda felt a little special. The octopus, scallops, and shrimp small plates tasted great. However, the fish that we shared at the end was not to our taste. Maybe we just weren't accustomed to the manner of cooking fish. Was very bland and lacked spice and flavor. However, the dessert was a chocolate thing with ice cream on the side. We shared this with some Greek coffee...the best dessert I've ever had. Completely made the dinner worth it. Thumbs up~!

I have always enjoyed the entire experience at the Buckhead Life establishments. I was unfortunately disappointed this time. The food was good and so were the drinks but the service left a lot to be desired.
The waiters were rude and left the table before taking everyone's order. Later the waiter spilled an entire drink down my friends back and not only did not apologize but blamed her for it. The manager was not much more accommodating. He half heartedly made an attempt to apologize claiming to pick up her dry cleaning bill and then never returned with his card to follow through. It took the waiter 30 minutes to get our check to us and left us as the last to leave.
So if you are only going to Kyma for the food and nothing else you will be satisfied. Otherwise, save your money!

Well. Im back with a review of a Buckhead life restaurant again. I like their restaurants. They are classy and upscale and the food and service is good too.
Kyma did not dissapoint.

However unlike their sister restaurant Pricci, the service lacked one key element. We had three people who waited on us and for some reason they kept hurrying us.
We like sitting and chilling and enjoying our dinner. Getting hustled for time did not really sit well with me.

Other than that, the food was good. They had Valet which is always a positive , a Standard high end restaurant. A good place to go on a date or just with friends.

Every expectation we had was met or exceeded. Decor and ambience top notch. Luxurious and cozy with a star lit ceiling and walls of candlelight. The waitstaff was courteous, knowledgable, attentive and detailed oriented, but never in your face. They had a relaxed way about them that reminded you that you were always in good hands.
There is an extremely talented team behind the scenes as well. From the spreads at the beginning to things like crispy calamari, wood grilled oysters ,and mussels in a pot. Then their specialty, wood grilled fish and I recommend it. Grilled whole, bone in and head on, offers flavor integrity you dont get from just a filet. The fish is then deboned and fileted before bringing it table side. Expertly done from beginning to end.
You can pay for a lot more for a lot less. Trust me on this one. Well done Kyma.

Every expectation we had was met or exceeded. Decor and ambience top notch. Luxurious and cozy with a star lit ceiling and walls of candlelight. The waitstaff was courteous, knowledgable, attentive and detailed oriented, but never in your face. They had a relaxed way about them that reminded you that you were always in good hands.
There is an extremely talented team behind the scenes as well. From the spreads at the beginning to things like crispy calamari, wood grilled oysters ,and mussels in a pot.

We chose to dine outdoors and that is the best part of this review, the ambiance is so nice, lots of candles, it really feels mediterranean. The food is okay, I'd definitely say overrated, but not bad. Lamb chops are fatty but flavorful, spanakopita is greasy, not enough feta in it. Drinks are strong, in some cases too strong, but I'd go back b/c the patio is nice for drinks and appetizers with a group.

We loved eating at Kyma. We are used to traditional Greek food, but we just fell in love with everything about this restaurant. The food was phenomenal and the wine was great. Go on a holiday or Valentines for the full course menu with wine pairing. Although expensive, it is well worth the treat - at least once in your life - if not many times. This is one of our favorite restaurants ever.

My wife and I went to Kyma for Valentine's Day this year. We weren't too impressed because of the limited set menu. We decided to come back and give it another try for our anniversary in September...WOW! I'm soo glad we did. We got the Meza appetizer dinner (choice 5 appetizers and 1 whole fish to share). It was kind of pricey but we left soo satisfied and FULL. Everything they put in front of us was delicious...and this was only the appetizers! They didn't have the Red Snapper that day but recommended a very delicious Greek fish. We highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys quality food and doesn't mind paying for it. Opa!
