Outstanding Greek food in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Tony is delightful. The Taramasalata dip was so good I saved some for dessert! (the fellow at the next table commented that it MUST contain some "addictive agent"). The house specialty Lamb Tenderloin was so good I...More

Not sure. When we were there, no live music, just overpriced food served poorly but in a hurry to turn the table. They were doing us a favor waiting on the group! We will never go back.
