Try the gyro omelette; not a combination that leaps to mind but a house specialty and very tasty indeed! The service was outstanding and no hassle accommodating the special tastes of three young children. I'm not from the area but will definitely go back for...More

This restaurant is one of our neighborhood favorites! You can choose an entree (some are under $20!) and you get two sides with it! I had the lamb kebobs with stuffed grape leaves and pesto couscous. Delicious! Dinner also comes with fresh pita bread and...More

We enjoyed a very light lunch of chicken wraps and tabouli followed by baklava and other pastry desserts. The food was very light yet quite satisfying. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was sleek yet still Greek. There is a well stocked bar, but we...More

This place has a cozy feel and the food is really really yummy. The staff are friendly too. I have been here multiple times for both lunch and dinner and it has always impressed me. Their mascarpone dessert was to die for. Highly recommend!

While the food was delicious, served hot and plentiful, the service was even better. Though nearly empty when we arrived at 5:30 PM, almost every table was occupied on a Saturday evening by 6:15 when we were served our meal. The eggplant and sundried tomato...More

We always enjoy going here, and three of us went mid week for dinner. We really recommend the Saganaki (flaming melted cheese). The moussaka is excellent at $17, and the vegetarian combo consisting of falafel, hummus and baba ghanoush is very tasty for $15. There...More

I had a Greek Salad that was fair. We had some appetizers with minus pita bread. The selections of beers are good. It isn't the most comfortable place I have been.
