We stopped by for lunch and ate outside on their airy porch. The restaurant was busy, but service was efficient and friendly. They have a large menu with many authentic Greek dishes and wines. Food was very tasty. All in all, we had a pleasant and enjoyable lunch.

We visited on a Wednesday night. The mussells sppetizers was fantastic. Warm bread was very good. My Pastitsio was dry and by the time our server came to check on us it was cold so I asked for extra sauce and a box. He had the meatballs and they were also good. Everything was just a little slow here and... More

Great Greek Salad - it was out of this world. It was fresh. I liked the Greek tomatoes. The portion is very generous. It has the classic center scoop of potato salad. The booths are comfortable. The wait staff is prompt and courteous. The bar tender makes great drinks.

I placed an order to go and unbeknownst to me, called the wrong one. When I arrived and said I was there to pick up an order it was discovered that it was at a different location. The lady at the bar was so nice and helpful. She called the other location and cancelled the order and replaced it there.... More

I love the atmosphere and food....The salad dressing should definitely be bottled and not in a a Styrofoam container when I buy the $5 dressing size. So consider bottling and put your label on it...oh yeah and don't forget my percentage for the idea.

We had live Greek music for about half our meal. The waitress was well-informed about the menu and very pleasant. This was my second visit and both times everything was delicious. The mango salad dressing was especially noteworthy. If you want a dramatic start to your experience, or the flaming cheese- get it while it's hot ( but the flame... More

Hands down best hookah i have enjoyed i think ever. Food, drinks, hookah are always great. Waiters here are like no other super knowledgeable, they can tell you anything about everything on the menu. They have belly dancers on some nights. Its always a great time.

So I came here at the recommendation of my best friend. Upon entering I noticed that there was napkins EVERYWHERE; I wasn't familiar with Greek tradition. Apparently every hour the waiters/waitresses dance and throw napkins; there's also plate breaking and screams of OPA! Very awesome if you get a chance to check it out. The food = AMAZING. I only...

My companion had eaten here before and wanted me to go. It is located in a strip mall that is very busy- there is a German beer garden, a Japanese restaurant, a couple of other restaurants, and parking is tight (they have complementary valet parking). Walk into a big noisy space with napkins all over the floor. I found out... More
