my husband & I made a reservation & when we came 7pm only to find out that all of the people waiting also made a reservation. We've been waiting for 1 hr 25 min but it wasn't fair because they are giving the table to the people whom they know or the same race as them.Management & servce is so poor.Don't waste your time waiting here.

After reading a glowing review the day before in the Baltimore Sun we decided to give this restaurant a try. In fact the article was displayed on an easel in the foyer with a ' ""Thank You"", written upon it. We can only surmise the writer was known to the establishment since our experience from food to service was dismal. All entries were cold. The Hellenic Surf and Turf consisted of lamb ordered medium rare, served dry, overcooked to the point of being brittle, the server never returned in order for this to be rectified. Calamari ordinary, crabcake oily. Endive boiled to a dark, grey, tasteless blob. Cod left a rancid aftertaste. Orzo was topped with a pink sauce reminscent of Campbells soup, rice pilaf was plain with a darker version of previous sauce. When the waitress returned, never questioned the abundance of food left, we selected what could be salvaged for the dog, she never explained 2 desserts comped, never picked up the credit card, we paid cash. $128.+20 tip, left feeling like we were served leftovers, including the desserts. Poor food, lackluster service.

My family has been going to Ikaros over 20 yrs and love the food every time. All our family celebrations have been at this great restaurant and we will continue to do so. Wonderful Crabcakes and the Greek food supurb.
My mouth waters just talking about it we are eating there tomorrow night. Everyone enjoy traditional Greek cuisine.

This restaurant was highly recommended to me by people so I took my wife their for a birthday dinner. I was told Ikaros has the best greek food in Baltimore. The tsatsiki was very good. I ordered the tenderloin shiskabob which was overcooked. The meat was dried out and had gristle and tendon running through it. The side dish was carrots and string beans that were frozen from a bag and not even seasoned. The rice that was on the side was watery and had a generic tomato sauce thrown on top. Horrible. My wife's food was even worst a shrimp dish that was shrimp in orzo baked in a tomato sauce with feta on top. No seasoning, bland, watery I have had Lean Cuisine meals that had more flavor. All in all the food was horrible the owners, the chef and the kitchen staff should be ashamed of themselves. What a horrible meal for $60 we paid our bill and left, went to little italy for deserts. There are much better restaurants to eat in Old greek town. Any good review of Ikaros on this website must be a fake written by the owners or the staff.

My family and I have eaten at Ikaros dozens and dozens of times. In all of Baltimore this is hands down our favorite restaurant. The portions are very generous and the food is extremely consistant. My personal favorite is the Calamari and the Pastitsio. I also love the roast lamb and really any meat dish. The cooks at Ikaros have a way with meat - it's perfectly seasoned and very, very tasty. Chicken, lamb, beef - it doesn't matter. If it's made out of meat - Ikaros will cook it to perfection. My wife loves the Village Salad (no lettuce) and the crab cakes are absolutely out of this world. We always bring company from out of town to Ikaros. We have to pay a toll through the harbor tunnel to get there, but it's soooo worth it. We drive about 20 miles to eat there and have gone there 2-3 times a month for over 10 years. I have tried other Greek restaurants, some of them very good, but we always seem to go back to Ikaros. They get my absolute highest recommendation.

I have ate Greek all over the country, from LA to Vegas to NYC to Chicago to pretty much anywhere you can think of and this is without a doubt one of the best Greek places I have ever enjoyed a meal (or two or three). Very good and friendly service. Can't go wrong with almost anything of the menu, Calamari, moussaka and top it off with some baklava would be just about perfect...but better not eat to much before you because the serving sizes are HUGE!

I'm from New York. We were in Baltimore last weekend and we chose this restaurant on the 3 recommendations bellow. Were we in the same place!?
Except for the eggplant salad appetizer everything was tasteless (between 7 of us, we covered most of the menu). Tossed salad was not mixed and not cut up. The waitress brought a huge bowl without serving utensils and said that that we can mix it and serve it ourselves. Now, that's service! I ordered a Salt Margarita (which was on the menu), they put the salt inside the drink.
As for décor, they could use a fresh coat of paint. And those bathrooms could really use some updating.
