Lovely, fresh lunch

This is an excellent choice for a nice, leisurely lunch. Two of us had the lunch special and it was delicious. We had gone by for dinner on Saturday night and couldn't get in without a reservation. Lunch was much easier. This is worth a stop in!

Enjoyed the food and ambiance. We had a big serving of tzatsiki, prasini and shared pork souvlaki. My elderly companion found the meat tough though but for me it was fine and I I liked the flavor.

I've only been here once but was impressed by the service and the food. We ordered a TON of food - oysters, dips, octopus, kebabs, etc. Everything was really good. Not the cheapest place but I'll definitely be back.

Met friends at this trendy place. Very interesting menu. We chose to start fried feta chunks coveted in seeds. Spinach pie. Bone marrow (never heard of this never mind eaten this before!!) and a pasta dish. All were to die for. Not just beautifully presented but tasty surprising food. Trouble was that was a meal in itself but there was... More

I ate here recently with my brother and his wife and we had a great meal. I ordered the Chicken, and it was absolutely amazing. I actually think it was some of the best chicken I've had. It came out on a big cutting board with a great lemon kale salad. My brother got the Bifteki, which was a beef... More

Came here after hearing a bit about the brunch. Walnuts on the Ovelia omelette was a nice touch. Reasonable pricing and seemed like nice ambiance (sat outside). Not to take away from the service or food but the thing I'll remember the most is how fancy the bathroom was.

I love Ovelia and come here often for brunch. It's a really cute place to take folks who are visiting from out of town. Try to sit outside in good weather. My reliable trio of favorite brunches are: the Eggs Benedict, the Steak Sofrito and the pulled pork sandwich!
