Excellent overall experience. Our party of 9 ordered mainly chicken souvlaki platters and lamb souvlaki platters. We were very pleased with the quality and taste of the food.

We love it here. Food & service is excellent. We did takeout throughout pandemic and this was our 1st time back in person , happy to see it was busy and crowded. My only critique is to do something about the acoustics - you need better insulation! It was really hard to hear our dining companions.
Thanks!

Very disappointed with my first (and for sure my last) experience here! Service was poor - including watching the waiter drop my silverware on the floor and then try to set them by my plate. No one is our party enjoyed their meal. It was so loud that we could barely talk. I do not recommend this restaurant at all!

Authentic Greek cuisine that is reminiscent of my time in Greece. My only complaint would be that the spice level was a little too much for me on the Fava spread - I don't remember Fava spread being at all spicy in Greece. Otherwise all of the for was delicious! Πολύ ωραία!

When we entered, I asked for outdoors dining. The staff at the desk said no and proceeded to sit us inside near other customers. Shortly afterwards, she and other staff started to seat customers outside.

The food was good and the ambiance was relaxed. However, the staff is inattentive and getting our server to come by our table proved to be difficult. More than half our time at the restaurant was spent waiting.

Waitress screwed up our order. We were first served entrees that we did not order. After waiting a while the waitress appeared with the entrees we originally ordered. I asked her to make sure when our check was presented that it reflected our original order. Guess what? It didn’t.

Otherwise the food was tasty. My only nit is that the horitaki salad had cubed feta and the portions seemed smaller than what I recall under the previous owner. A cost saving measure, perhaps?

Thought it was great! Servers were attentive and the sampling of dips/sauces as an app with pita was perfect to share with a friend while catching up.

This is my favorite Greek restaurant because of the food quality and the atmosphere. Casual environment,
easy to get to and parking! One of the best dining experiences around. My party of 8 was completely comfortable, we enjoyed the food and the attentive service. Highly recommend.

Food was good, but it didn’t “wow” me. The cook on the food was on point, but it was lacking seasoning. I did come to the restaurant an hour before closing, so maybe that was a factor. Overall, I would go back to give it another chance.

This was our 2nd time here before a show at the Welmont. There were 4 of us and we split the cold appetizer for 2 - delicious, the hummus plate - best ever and the pita bread was SO GOOD & a sausage appetizer with orange zest which was very tasty.
Both couples had the same dinners, a gyro platter and mousakka. The dishes were delicious and since they were so big we had plenty to take home and enjoy for dinner the next night. This is now our go to spot whenever we are in the area. The staff is very nice as well. Great place.

I made a reservation for Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend and I were talking about the good reviews on this restaurant, then our experience. We agreed that either the restaurant didn’t expect to have that amount of people that night or our waitress was new in the restaurant and wasn’t taking table orders well. We didn’t want to be rude (but after the waiting, waiting ) we ordered dessert and changed our order to go. Desserts were free as a courtesy. In general, we enjoyed the appetizers and the desserts. Great food, we want to go back with better luck.
