Have raved about their entrees, but have yet to rave about the appetizers, in particular...saganaki! If you want Greek, you have to try their wonderfully fried cheese! The only thing missing was the flame and the OPA!!!

We were so very pleased to have our family birthday party of five people here! The atmosphere was attractive and sound subdued, so we could really have a nice visit where we could hear each other. The food was great! All of us enjoyed our meal of generous portions. We can highly recommend the calamari - the best we have... More
