Paid 120$ for chateubriand . It was horrible. Tasted like a crappy steak with the packaged four peppercorn sauce to which you add water that you buy at the supermarket . Horribly disappointed. Did not know the restaurant changed ownership. Will never be back.

We love this restaurant, we visit often, the ambiance and charm of the place is matched by impeccable wait service and a feeling of welcome as soon as you enter the restaurant. The table service for salads and peppercorn steak is both entertaining and an opportunity to chat with the waiter, the food is excellent, the wine list is good... More

First visit wasn't sure but after second visit now I'm just pissed. Too much staff with no experience and lack of direction. Ordered surf/ turf 70.00 for below standard steak and over cooked lobster. They do make an excellent Caesar salad but not good enough for me to ever go back. Our bill was over 260 not counting tip was... More

We would go here once in a while as the food was always reliable (not cheap) and the service was iffy, depending on the waiter. Last night we had a reservation and arrived promptly at 6:50 on the Friday before Mother's Day. We sat down and the complimentary pickles, olives, feta cheese and garlic bread arrived. The very "nervous" waiter... More

We chose this restaurant for our special occasion because we had heard it was good and the reviews seem to back that. I ordered the seafood chowder which tasted only of red peppers. There were clams in it which appeared to be canned. No other seafood so i'm not sure why they don't call it clam chowder. There were lumps... More

Our family of 10 just celebrated a number of birthdays and wedding anniversary there. Our table was set up in a private area of the restaurant, which was much appreciated. There was a wide food selection (appetizers, entrees & desserts) and they had the best French fries that I have had in a long time! There was a chicken fingers/fries... More

An amazing fine dining experience. Wonderfully gracious hosts, attentive and knowledgeable wait staff, can't say enough about the quantity and quality of the appetizers and entrees. I highly recommend the saganaki cheese for appetizer-great flavour! I had the red snapper for my entree and it was cooked perfectly. And what to say about the desserts...almost too many choices. I left... More

Night started out with nowhere to park, and very slippery on our way in. The Staff was very friendly and attentive, the food was lack luster. Obviously heavy in the greek influence, everything on menu seemed ordinary and CRAZY expensive. The decor made the place feel dirty and dingy, for the prices we expected alot more. Desert was bland and... More
