Restaurant is very Greek.. Drink Menu and wine list both in Greek. Very nice selection of appetizers and entrees. Allowed to order either full or half portion of entrees. Prompt service and pleasant atmosphere

This took me back to Greece. The menu had lots of choices. The tiri saga ski is a fun show stopper when the brandy is lit! You must love garlic for the scordalia as it is strong. The salmon was done to perfection.

The Greek salad, moussaka and pork souvlaki were good. Small portions available at a reasonable price. Outdoor seating available. Just off 4th means its quieter.

Went here for dinner and there are a number of positive things to applaud this restaurant for. The first being a real Greek wine list and the second being the service. I cannot imagine a Greek restaurant that does not have anchovies for their salads....More

Sweatbreads are always on the menu but the octopus depends on what they get in.
