    Arrived after a show to pleasant service and delicious food despite being close to their closing time. We ordered small plates, as it was quite late-- everything was delicious and fresh: sardines, grilled shrimp, spinach rice, tomato arugula salad and a trio of dips. Exactly what we needed in a late night dining experience. Definitely will go back.

    Outstanding ambiance- high ceilings, plants, table settings and overall decor. Massive baskets of ripe, red tomatoes hung over the fresh fish over ice display. Delectible menu offerings-whole filet of sole was light and lemony. Halumi cheese appetizer with honey and figs was savory and unique. Staff was on the ball and attentive. Managers and maitre'd were overseeing the scene and service. High end Greek restaurant with upscale feeling.

    We ordered a bottle of wine and our server refused to put our ice bucket on our table. Instead, he put it on the ledge on the other side of the table next to us. He then disappeared. We had to ask the other customers to pass our wine to us repeatedly. The wine wasn’t submerged in the ice and therefore wasn’t cold. This further negatively impacted our experience. Waiter was completely inattentive. Another server left our appetizer dirty forks on the table for us to use with out entree. Shortly thereafter I saw her in the bathroom. She did not wash her hands when she left the stall. Despite this and due to train schedules we sat at the bar for a glass of wine afterwards. They upsold their wine by the glass options (wine wasn’t even on the list). I could see the potential but you can’t be an upscale restaurant and treat your patrons this way.

    We were there for a pre-theater lunch. It's a beautiful space! We were seated promptly and the service overall was great. Our food was delicious and beautifully presented. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.

    We had a fine pre theater dinner. The portions were not huge but sufficient. It was expensive but there are not many choices in the theater district that provide space, efficiency and nice food.

    This is a very nice Greek restaurant. The food is fish forward, complimented with Mediterranean style appetizers and a selection of Greek, and other wines. It's a white table cloth, upscale type of place. I would certainly return.

    Fresh seafood - just what we were hoping for on this trip to New York! The Greek flavor twist made it even more special.

    Lovely dining room. Food prices quite high --$25 for simple Greek salad, for example, fish dishes $50-60 per pound without accompaniments. Dishes sold by weight of whole fish, so the snapper or grouper I fancied would have been about $100 for one diner had I chosen it --instead had passable bronzino, served alone. Very small hummus/olive/radish plate and one crust of bread (the very last of the batch, and no return with offer of more bread). Very good wine list. Overall, not worth nearly $400 for two diners (though we chose a $100 Sancerre).
