Was here for a Christmas party. Food was good but small portions meant to share. Sampler cheese plate was delicious. Meatball entrée was good too. Ravioli beef entree was handmade and it was absolutely divine. Staff is very helpful with Greek terms. Will stop by again.

Food is very good, very different & fun to share. They have a wide variety of small plate options so you can pick a few & share with your dining companions. I don't like Brussel spouts, but theirs are VERY good!

Everything is so good here, and the wait staff is very attentive. It is a bit pricey and you get what you pay for. This is a very nice restaurant.

Visited mid-afternoon for food haven on a rainy day and family gathering. Many good lunch, small bite and entree options. We had a sampler spread, beet salad, olives, grilled Brussel sprouts and moussaka. Food was well prepared and presented. Wait staff was equally attentive. Very good value overall including Mediterranean sourced wines.5

We have been here a few times and it never disappoints. There are plenty of selections for any kind of appetite. Highly recommended if you want to try a bunch of plates without overeating.

We worked with both Nikki, the events coordinator, and Mary, the general manager, to plan our outdoor wedding reception for 50 on their outdoor tented patio. Even though it was November, the outdoor reception went off without a hitch. The tented patio is well heated and had plenty of room for our guests. They worked with us on our floor... More

Great date night out. Quiet Tuesday evening in the restaurant, so while we made reservations they were not needed. Service was friendly and attentive. Small plates came out quickly. Food was excellent especially their Turkish cigar trio and lamb meatballs. Their corn penne pasta dish was surprisingly bland but they took it back and gave us another choice. Would definitely...

The food here was very good. We came for Sunday brunch and I got the buffet. There was such a variety of foods that had to get a little bit of everything. It included breakfast foods as well lunch foods which was nice. I'm assuming that they hand make their own Nan bread because it was fantastic! However, I would... More

Everything about the restaurant was outstanding. My only complaint is we couldn't try everything on the menu. We went for lunch and decided to order from the regular menu and not the express lunch menu. The small plates let us sample several items. I especially liked the baby artichokes and the moussaka. The fresh bread with olive oil was a... More

Everything here was outstanding. We had the dip sampler, toubleah, the brussel sprouts were amazing and such a different flavor. We loved the beef and shrimp skewers. Can't wait to return. I hope to try most of the menu. My only disappointment was the chewy Turkish ice cream. I expected something unique, it wasn't.
