Lefteris in Mount Kisco

I love the Lefteris in Tarrytown, but it is always packed and the ambience is diner-like. How does the Mt Kisco place compare? I'm sure the food is the same, but what about the ambience and the crowds?

  1. I like it. Seems to be pretty busy and the food is good.

    1. imho tarrytown food is mediocre

      1. I recently had lunch with a group of co- workers at Lefteris in Mt. Kisco. The ambiance is more restaurant-like and I honestly thought the food was better, same sucky service though.

          i think these are "good for westchester" restaurants but not particularly good.

            Agreed, I stated that I thought the food was better at the Mt. Kisco location. I was comparing the food at the two restaurants. I personally prefer Santorini for local Greek, DH prefers Lefteris.

        2. There's definitely a lot more breathing room, that's for sure! I like it. The ambience is very relaxed, and family friendly. Even when it's packed, it's not too cramped. Also you'll feel much less rushed in Mt. Kisco, which is a huge plus.

            After my experience in their Tarrytown location, I won't even try their location in Mount Kisco. We ordered a greek salad and a hummus dip to share ,upon taking just one forkful our entrees arrived (I would like to have at least come close to finishing the salad) . When the waitress put our entrees on the table she asked if we were having dessert , I said you have to be kidding she left and after 5 minutes returned and said she was sorry but that the boss was watching her and he wants to clear the tables as soon as possible for the people that were waiting. I told her that all I wanted when I was FINISHED with my entree was the check. Would never go to any of their locations.

              Your experience (sorry to hear it!) is why I haven't been to the Tarrytown location in over a year.

                i havent been back in many years, not bcause of service, but because of bad food

          2. I'm really surprised by the negative reviews! I've never been to the Tarrytown Lefteris but I've visited the Mount Kisco one with both family and friends on separate occasions multiple times.

            Today I went for lunch with my mother. She got a lentil soup that was so flavorful and delicious. I got the gyro platter which I shared with my mother. It came with a large greek salad with huge chunks of feta and a very nice dressing. I was ordering quickly and thought I had ordered a gyro sandwich platter. When the waitress saw that I was a little disappointed that it was just a platter of meat, tzatsiki, and pita without all the veggies, she brought me out a huge warm pita with salad and tomatoes, for no extra charge. She was incredibly patient, sweet, and helpful, not hesitating to tell my mother honest opinions about each soup option. My platter was 12.95. I think for the huge amount of food you get, it's a great deal, a nice place for friends and family to gather.

            Don't waste time on the fries when there are other options
