Place is overrated!! – I am Greek so I can say I know a thing or 2 about Greek food. Well from my experience from Stamatis I can say that it is not the best Greek food. I ordered mousaka and it was cooked in heavy oil that seemed like it might have been old and my friend ordered the biftekia which were absolutely disgusting. They're food made me feel sick. I would not recommend going there for good Greek food plus it is always packed and there is a long waiting time on some night, which I have to say its not worth the wait.
Worst Place! – Worst service and food!! If you not Greek-don’t go there!! I have disregarded the bad reviews they received for the month of December and I did wrong. Let’s go into it: Our friend invited us to this place listening to one of her Greek buddies that recommended this restaurant. The server could not recommend much so we had to go with our assumption that it would taste good. They do not have a liquor license so I called before going there and made sure about that. We really wanted to enjoy a Jack Daniels before our meal so I brought a small bottle (375 ml) for the 6 of us and I asked the server if that would be possible to do. He went back and asked management and told us that they would charge us $ 6.00 as fee. We agreed and then they got us the 6 glasses but did not serve the liquor for us. The appetizers came out one of a time and were cold (even the “warm” ones) but we were still ok until I decided to tell my server that I will go with the Rib eye stating “ you can’t go wrong with a steak”. I was so wrong! Everybody’s meal came out with the exception of the “medium” rib eye. It was well done and dried out so I decided to ask my server to bring me another one. After he took it back, he returned real quickly and the steak was all cut in small pieces. He mentioned that the “chef” send it back to me to proof that it was “medium “cooked. The parts next to the bone were “pink” but 90 % of my steak was really well done cooked. I told him to take it away and that I would not eat anything else and I have lost my appetite. When you are paying $20.00 for a 16 oz Rib Eye (bone in) and another $ 5.00 for the side dish in a restaurant that only sells 1 white wine and 1 red wine and then they burn it for you and even fight with you, you really lose your appetite. Then I asked the server if I could talk to the owner but he mentioned that the owner does not speak English. You could imagine my frustration. Later I asked him if there is a manager in the building and he said “yes” with nonchalance that would piss anybody off. I requested the manager’s presence and she came but when I explained what happened, she apologized but never offered to make me another steak only saying that she would like me to return and then she would “take care of me”. Obviously she was more concern that I would not return instead of making sure that my experience at that point would be repaired. The evening ended by all other having their meal with the exception of me! I would never return there. This is perfect way of destroying you Sunday evening.

Great food – We live in the neighborhood, and this is definitely one of our go-to places. I like the casual family style atmosphere, staff is good and on top of it, and food never disappoints. Everything we've had, and we're working our way through that menu, is really delicious and authentic. And hey, we saw Jackie Mason dining there once! How can you argue w/that?
Good food and good price – The food is very good for the price. The service is also good and fast. The only problem is that sometimes they don't have everything that is in their menu.
Authentic Greek Home Cooking – Coming from a Greek home where the quality of a meal was held to the strictest standards of freshness, quality, taste and care, Stamatis Broadway is the closest I've been able to find to satisfy the home cooking craving. The majority, if not 99%, of the clientele is Greek, so you know you are getting the real deal. Known favorites for all tastes are prepared exceptionally (souvlaki, befteki (beef patties), horiatiki salata, roast lamb and chicken); try the grilled squid, stuffed cabbage leaves and their peas and artichokes for a more traditional approach to their kitchen. And for fish lovers, choose your fresh fish from the front and ask them to grill it for you!
I love it. – Excellent restaurant!! The food is very good and the people working there are very nice. I go there every week.
