Large seating capacity inside and out. Service average, especially for as few people as were there for a late lunch. Food was average. The sweet potato fries were amazing, according to my wife.

This place was really good, but not all Greek food. The dinner specials in the menu were Italian and the to-go box was in Spanish. They didn't have all unique Greek dishes according to a friend of mine, but the one I tried was really good. Large portion sizes. Nice atmosphere especially if you sit outside on the patio.

I stayed at the Sheraton the week of April 15,2015 and walked over to this place. I ordered what I normally love:Greek Salad and the lemon soup. The soup was cold with too much rice and the salad was a large bowl of lettuce with one olive; three pieces of tomato and little else. The worst was the dressing. It... More

Went here for a business lunch. Being of Greek Heritage, I was hoping for a taste of home. Wrong! Just bad food. No where in Greece could you ever buy a Gyro that comes on a green spinach wrap. The salad looked like it had been made days ago. We ate outside, and there were loads of flies and the... More

First visit @ this location. It was 1:00 pm on Sunday, and this huge restaurant was practically empty.Not a good sign. Parked in garage, took elevator and walked a lot outdoors to the restaurant. Even with card stamped, parking ran about $1 an hour. Calamari @ $9 was breaded with hard crust,overly seasoned & just awful. We ordered the Meat... More

Walked across from the Sheraton and was seated immediately on a Tuesday night with no other diners in the restaurant. We missed happy hour by just a few minutes but I ordered the lobster ravioli and it was very large and good - the cream based sauce was wonderful to dip pita bread in. We also shared a roasted red...

Do yourself a favor, don't come here. We began with trying to get the waiters attention and our experience we down hill from there. We ordered the flaming feta.

A Greek dinner is better. Flaming feta dish was the saltiest feta I ever fastest. Cheap quality according to Greek friend at table. Gave you literally 2 tbs salsa with it which was tastiest part. Greek salad not fresh. Chicken soulvake was ok. Fries tasted remarmed. Spinach pie terrible. I ordered vegetable soulvakib that came with no white sauce. Waiter... More
