My wife and I reserved a table for two for our anniversary on the 28th. When we arrived we were told that we would have to wait outside on the steps leading up to the restaurant.

We came across Astera's on Trip Advisor. We had a great time and the food was really, really good! Our servers were very nice and thoughtful with recommendations as we had never been there. The whole experience was delightful. Thanks Astera's!

One of the best Greek meals ever. Moussaka was superb. A little disappointed in the baklava...too much phyllo not enough filling. Beautiful restaurant. Lovely setting and excellent service.

I love the decor in this restaurant. I love the fact that I always feel warm and cozy in this place. I'm not one to eat Greek food but they have other choices that are just fine by me.
