And it was yummy! Meat fell of the bone as promised. Tastily spiced, served with Greek roast potatoes (or you could have rice). Also came with a large Greek salad and garlic bread, which I would have preferred warm. Dessert was a decadent Tiramisu.

My wife and I picked Five Columns for my birthday dinner. The service is always great and the food is always delicious and we have never been disappointed. Our Server, Mason, is exceptional. He is friendly, professional, efficient and made the night relaxing and fun.

The food was tasty and filling for the serving but very high priced. Then we were billed a tip amount (no choice) and a spot to add a tip to the final bill! Not impressed.
