    We were 1 of 2 tables in the restaurant and the service was mediocre at best. The food was average but a bit pricey. The sandwiches were not offered for dinner which we felt was a bit of a disservice as well.

    We had a very lovely group lunch at this restaurant. We loved the ambience, delicious mezze and entrees as well as the warm welcome and graciousness of our host. We are definitely returning.

    Delicious meal and warm, friendly service. Price is a tad high for some dishes, but otherwise very fair. Highly recommend!

    Some good elements but not better than smaller places with 5$ mezzes. We had chaotic service with a 20 minute wait for the check. Okay but not writing home.
