Good Greek food is hard to find in the San Francisco Bay Area, unless you’re willing to slog through The City’s gridlock or trek double-digit miles to the tip of the Peninsula. Those two points boast two upscale sister restaurants serving Hellenic cuisine for decades....More

This is one of the loveliest restaurants in the city - very much underrated - a neighborhood gem. The flavors of each and every dish are luscious, soft and authentic. I also loved our service (Maria is the loveliest). I can go on about our...More

We had dinner here with a table of four. We ordered the appetizer octopus, tiger prawns, entrees of lamp chop, pork and halibut. The octopus was a bit disappointing because it was burned and super soft, losing the chewy texture of the octopus. But on...More

We've eaten here three or four times now, and it's simply excellent. Not cheap, but the food is outstanding. The greek salad is perfect - always a sign of a Greek restaurant that knows what it is doing. The yoghurt is, of course, sumptuous, and...More

Perhaps a review is unwarranted but we could not get them to take us twice for dinner. We were appalled at the unfriendly woman who guarded her establishment like something from a Grimm fairy tale. We had heard the food was wonderful and also gluten...More
