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?

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.

We dined on the side room which was very cold but it was Valentine’s Day so it was very busy, understandable. Food still came out great! Authentic Greek food, good portions. The pita bread basket was delicious accompanied with the Greek spreads, namely hummus, Tzatziki and the grilled eggplant spread. The grilled whole fish was outstanding, we picked loup de mer, perfectly executed, very fresh and moist flesh. The fish belly was cleaned nicely and no bitterness or fishy taste. Highly recommend! The lamb souvlaki was cooked a point. definitely will go back again!

There were three of us and we decided to share a small salad, a moussaka and a chicken Slouvaki. There was so much food that we couldn’t possibly finish. Everything was delicious, even the pita bread! The restaurant was very quiet because it was lunchtime and there were only two other tables occupied. They have a full lunch menu, but we ordered from the regular dinner menu. I will surely recommend it to my lunch group of 12 women for our next get together.

We made a last minute reservation for 10 and they were so accommodating! There was a large table away from the rest of the tables and it was a perfect area for a larger group. We had many appetizers and they were all good. The fried calamari and octopus were exceptional. Everyone enjoyed their dinners as well. We had chicken, shrimp and lamb souvlaki. As well as the chicken platter. Food is so fresh and well seasoned. The staff was on top of everything. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
