We had a celebration dinner here last week. The food was excellent and we sat outside on the patio and the atmosphere was great. Our waiter was funny and attentive.

Absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the babaganoush, followed by the octopus salad, seriously huge tentacles and sea bass. We split all of the items. Super fresh! Great alfresco dining and excellent staff. Highly recommend!
