From what I'm told this is a local landmark, they have been at this location for so long that they even named a street after them!! The atmosphere has a elegant Mediterranean feel and the dress code is casual. The area you have to walk through to get to the bathrooms is still under renovation (they are adding a bar - NICE!) but the bathroom was clean and well stocked and updated with tile on the walls.

The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing! I happened to be there on Wine night. From what I was told it is the first Friday of each month and Wine is unbelievably $2.00 by the glass! Ok so enough about the Wine, the food: We had Saganaki - (FRIED CHEESE & LIT ON FIRE), Greek Salad, Lamb Kabobs & Greek Spaghetti - they were all amazing. We did not have any complaints about the food or the entire experience. They even bring homemade sliced Greek Bread and seasoned Olive Oil to your table at the beginning of the meal.

Portions are VERY generous. I recommend coming very hungry and planning on taking home some leftovers. I will definitely be returning to try other menu options!

Even during a remodel period Orapax manages to produce quality favorites.

New decor including photos of Orapax history was amazing!

The best Greek food around. Start with Pegasus Wings and go on to the entrée, Pizza, Greek Chicken, Lamb.
Great wine and atmosphere for any occasion.
They are expanding with a bar area so be patient.

My family and I have been enjoying Orapax for 15 plus years now. The atmosphere has a Mediterranean feel, the dress is casual, food is great.
The first Friday of each month is a treat with wine by the glass $2.00EA.
Saganaki, Greek salad, lamb kabobs, Spinach Pizza. All very good!

Recommend venturing off the beaten path to experience Orapax.

Food as fresh and came out quickly. Despite there being a huge party in the restaurant our waitress was very attentive.
