The food was great! Unfortunately, they were one waitstaff short and the service was exceptionally slow. However, the staff that was there worked very hard to try to get everyone served. I received a free dessert for the inconvenience.

Food was good, three mix ups by server. Wine, entree and dessert were not what we ordered. Valet (free)was great and helped me with wheelchair.

What You'll Get


The ancient Greeks congregated at the Olympic games to celebrate their greatest athletes, boo their most nearsighted referees, and support their friendliest gyro vendors. Savor historical flavors with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Greek fare and drinks at Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna in Greektown.

Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna inspires mouth mirth with a mélange of Greek and Mediterranean cuisines created from traditional recipes and quality ingredients. Broader than Hercules’s handlebar moustache, the restaurant’s menu offers eaters an array of pastas, salads, lamb chops, succulent steaks, and sea bass flown in from the Mediterranean. Broilerized bites include souvlaki kebabs of pork tenderloin marinated in olive oil and herbs and broiled on a skewer of veggies ($14.95), and the list of Greek specialties features mousakas—a dish consisting of layered eggplant, zucchini, grated cheese, and ground beef and lamb topped with béchamel sauce ($14.95). The lunch menu includes gyros ($6.25) as well as other midday munchables ideal for working lunches with stuffed-animal coworkers.

Pegasus’s stunning coliseum of a dining room is outfitted with murals depicting the Greek islands and contains enough tables for army of hungry Trojan War reenactors. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, dine on Pegasus’s mighty rooftop veranda, which gives diners an elegant, unobstructed view of the Chicago skyline and early-detection capabilities to guard against hordes of invading Spartans.

  • Goodness gracious, this food was delicious. And I love combination platters because I get to taste multiple things off the menu, things that I could hardly play favorites with. – Melissa R., Yelp
  • Anybody who is downtown and wants to try greek for the first time... go here, you will not be dissapointed! [sic] – metronewbie, Citysearch

About Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna


The Melidis-Katsoulias family from the Patras region on Greece's western coast decided to bring the Mediterranean influences of home to Chicago's Greektown, opening Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna in 1990, and later on opened sister restaurants Artopolis Bakery, Cafe & Agora and Pegasus On The Fly. Though diners can find Greek favorites such as saganaki and gyros on the Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna menu, the servers also recommend kitchen specialties such as char-grilled octopus and center-cut lamb chops. Every week, they'll fly in fresh Mediterranean sea bass ("lavraki") and sea bream ("tsipoura"). Chefs season the whole fish with sea salt, pepper, oregano, olive oil, and fresh lemon juice, before filleting and grilling tableside.

The chefs use spices imported from Greece to season their dishes and get fresh bread from their sister restaurant, the nearby Artopolis Bakery & Cafe. In the main dining room, bright-blue accents stand against breezy whites and creams, and an eye-popping mural of an island vista stands next to white-draped tables. While the main dining room offers the full menu, Pegasus also features a seasonal, open-air rooftop veranda (approximately from Memorial Day to Labor Day), where guests can enjoy al fresco dining from a selected menu of mezedes, or small plates, as they gaze at Chicago's skyline.
