Hi, I'm so sorry we didn't meet expectations. The server should have offered you a choice of bread -rye, white, wheat, or pita-. Thank you for the honest feedback and all the best!

Amazing food! Greek salad was delicious as was the lamb shank. We also enjoyed the chicken kebab and the gyro. Portions were generous. Service was great.
