The best greek food I've had yet! Please do yourself a favour and order the grilled octopus - so juicy, and perfectly charred. The service was also excellent and very knowledgable about all their food items and cocktails. Most seafood is flown in from Greece, while meat such as lamb and beef are from grass-fed, Ontario animals.

I will say that we we went on a Friday evening and were almost the only people there, which can be a good thing depending on what you're after. It may pick up later in the night as more of a bar (they had a live DJ who was playing excellent Greek Island dance club music - not too loud though, just loud enough to accompany the meal and drinks well).

All the best to you, Gazi!

The music was just wayyyy too loud. Would have been nice if it was a tad bit lower, as we couldn’t even have a conversation amongst our group.

Our waitress Christina was absolutely perfect. She recommended the best cocktails, appetizers and food.

We will definitely be back!

My friends and I had an overall disappointing experience. I heard about this place on BlogTo and it looked awesome. I was excited to try all 3 sparking wines on the menu but when I tried to order one they said their entire wine list was unavailable & there was just 1 bottle of red left. I ordered a cocktail & there was a bug in my ice cube. I told the server & he said he’d tell the manager and the issue was never brought up again. The food was pretty good but not amazing for the portions and the cost. I’m glad I tried it but I don’t meed to go back when this city has so many amazing places.

My husband and I had dinner and have yet to receive points for this reservation.

When we entered and told the hostess of our reservation, she did not verify our reservation or my name, nor did she check the computer. She just said, "Ok, please have a seat anywhere." We came to this restaurant for the smelts as we love them! When got our order they looked unappetizing, it actually looked gross and we strongly believe it was not smelts, as they were so tiny we only tasted the fried batter. We did not taste the meat in the fish and we left most of it untouched. Additionally, the sauce that came with it did not match with the chemistry of the smelts taste wise. It is incredible they serve this to the public! It was a huge disappointment.

So we ordered 2 mains. While we waited, an employee decided to sweep the floor of the patio while people were eating. As he swept, dust was seen in the air. A few minutes later this same employee was seen serving food. My husband and I were totally disgusted. We just felt to get up and leave, but we ordered food, so we decided to stick it out and hope it redeemed itself from the smelts catastrophe.

We waited and waited. It felt as if it was about 25 minutes and I asked our waitress how much longer for our order. A few minutes later, she came with my order alone. We asked what about my husband's order? She had a 'I am not sure' expression on her face and said it will be here shortly. We were so fed up by then, we asked her to cancel my husband's order and I asked for my food to go.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, as it was a horrible experience from beginning to end. I would like to know if the smelts they serve are real smelts. After enduring this dreadful dining experience, I was not awarded points from OpenTable.

Great service, food was incredible! A bit overpriced for the portions though. No beer on the drinks menu and the restaurant was out of the first two types of wine we asked for.

A group of 10 for dinner before a show at the Danforth Music Hall. Great vegan options. Incredible drinks, go for the Basilian or the Margarita with cucumber. Can’t wait to return.

Portions were too small (especially the cocktails) for the price
