Excellent food and service. Saganaki flamed right at the table. The menu offers plenty of options.



I had the WORST restaurant exp...

I had the WORST restaurant experience of my life here! New to the city, my husband and I decided to check out the downtown area. As soon as we walked in we realized we were a little under-dressed in our jeans and tees. Boy did our waiter let us know it too! He acted as though coming to our table was a MAJOR inconvenience to him. Also, he barely made an attempt to understand my husband's moderately thick accent. By the time he brought the bill we were so sick of his attitude that we paid at the hostess station. As we were signing the credit card receipt he came running toward us accusing us of skipping out on the bill! Unbelievable! The food could not compensate for such an experience. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

I was surprised to see bad reviews on here. This is my favorite restaurant in Greektown. I have been eating here since I was a little kid (I'm 25). The atmosphere is lively and loud, just like a Greek restaurant should be, in my opinion. The decoration is ornate and creates a setting like you are eating in an authentic Greek restaurant on the Mediterranean. The Saganaki is great (Opa!) and pretty much everything on the menu is stellar. My personal favorite is the Chicken Lemonato (I know it's not VERY Greek). It is breaded chicken in a semi-thick garlic, lemon, butter and wine sauce. There are many great restaurants in Greektown, but Pegasus is my favorite, that's why I keep going back!

very bad

I am Greek so I know Greek food and any god food for that matter. I have been to other Greek restaurants which have been equally disappointing.

Their food does not taste like Greek food. Whoever says it is authentic they do not know Greek food. My girlfriend and I both have had stomach problems from eating there even the next day.

It is very pricey and bad quality.

The waiters are not polite. The toilets stink very badly. They toilets and smoking toilets!!! so watch out for your kids going in there.

Do not go there.

bad advice

i recently went here with some of my friends, now mind you, i'm 17 and they're 19. my friend asked our waiter what he recommended from the menu, he, of course, recommended one of the most expensive things on the menu, the shrimp. later when we ordered, my other friend ordered the shrimp while everyone else went with something more affordable, considering the shrimp was $22. when we got our food, we thought it was a joke, he got six medium sized shrimp, and some nasty looking green peas. later, my friend was able to laugh at this, but at the time he was VERY upset, as were we. i personally would recommend the parthonon, which is just across the street, or pizza popolis.



Anniversary Time

My husband and I have gone to Pegasus, every year to celebrate our anniversary. Twenty One and counting!!!

Good food, bad service

The food here is authentic and very good. However, service is less than stellar. We asked our server to wrap up leftovers and instead he threw them away...then didn't offer to correct his mistake.

Authentic food

Great food but you feel as though your being rushed. During peak times it can get very busy and load. Still recommended.

The only draw back was the seating of our party,poor planing on the mangerment part. Food was great ,service was at a fast pass.Don't go there for quite time. A fun place for yong and old.

authenticity and atmosphere

Well this has to be the best restaurant in Detroit that I have found yet. A Greek friend of mine says that the food is VERY authentic, just like her aunts and mom make. The service is SUPERB and the food is awesome. This place is A+++, highly recommeded.
