Friendly greeter; subdued colors, relaxing atmosphere. Their prix fixe menu offers a variety of entrees, along with appropriate choices for appetizer & dessert for a very reasonable price. The main menu extends those choices, with prices from upper teens to thirties for entrees. Waitstaff was excellent - attentive (ALL of them - no 'that's not my table' here) and friendly.... More

Recently, to celebrate a birthday, we went there and ordered one of the specials. Sadly, there was a problem with my meal.

Almost every time I come here I order a few appetizers instead of entrees. The food is excellent, the tables are cozy and the wine is great!

My husband has sampled the grilled fresh fish as well as another shrimp/seafood dish. We have also sampled the tzatziki and spanakopita for an appetizer -... More

I went there with some co-workers. We each had different meals and we all loved it. The restaurant has a friendly atmosphere and the hostess HEIDI makes everyone feel welcome. She explained the menu, made recommendations and she felt like one of our party. The wait staff was excellent and the owner took time to check on us and ensure... More

We eat here all the time and have not had a bad meal yet. My son even dared me to try the octopus- and it was delicious. Staff are friendly and treat you like family. You can sign up for their e-mail notices for events like the around the world wine tasting, or Greek night. Whether you go with family... More
