We called to make a reservation, ten year wedding anniversary. Can we get a quieter table? "No problem," the front desk replied. "We're pretty quiet tonight, so you should have a quiet place on the patio." We arrived to a near-empty restaurant inside, and a...More

The service was not very attentive due to too many tables on a Saturday night. The lamb dishes were unimaginative and tasted like they had been stood back in the kitchen for days. The salad came without lettuce I couldn't believe it.

I came on Open Street Day and went inside for lunch. I had the Greek salad with salmon. The mixed greens were fresh and the salmon and grilled vegetables were great with the olives, peppers and feta cheese. Service was good. Exactly what I imagined!

The atmosphere and staff are wonderful. Just a great place to sit enjoy family. The food is always well presented and excellent. Gyro platter and a Greek salad is always my choice out of habit.

The food is good, but we have repeatedly experienced service that is inexcusable. One day we were seated then waited for 45 minutes without a waiter's attention, while later guests ordered and were served. We could have said something but expected SOMEONE to notice. Finally...More

I have been to this restaurant several times; I would go more often if I lived closer and if parking wasn't such a hassle. Cons: Parking. You probably will have to pay for parking unless you luck out and find free parking the next block...More
