Never a disappointment

Been here many times and often pick up food for take out. Gyros are good. Skordalia is my favorite app. Service has always been good. Street parking.

I was hungry for really good food and this was a great choice. We had the Greek salad and the lamb shank. It was delicious. The restaurant is very clean, the food extra fresh and made with love, and the service was just right. They also serve a Greek coffee in a tiny cup -- well worth the price. The... More

I live in Minneapolis, but this was a new restaurant for us. We have traveled to Greece and sampled cuisine from many different locals on the Peloponnese mainland. The options here were extensive, whether your needs extend from carnivore to vegan with no preference seemingly biased against. We were all pleased with our choices. We choose a appetizer on the...

Great place for a snack or meal. Try The Black Eyed Peas and or beets to tantalize your taste buds. Grab a super thick Greek coffee for a treat. Awesome food! Rebecca took care of us and made the experience more enjoyable. Swing by for some authentic cuisine. Opa!

Food was good, service was inept. The waiter was late to arrive and was then inattentive. The service spoiled an otherwise pleasant experience. It's a nice concept which is poorly executed. If you like, take your chances. Food was 3.5 but service was off the chart at the bottom

Wonderful gyros, the Greek fries are fabulous. If only the walls didn't have food splashed all over them. Beautiful stained glass windows in the entry but they looked like they haven't been washed in years. Makes one wonder how clean the kitchen is.

I went for lunch today and ate with a friend and my daughter. It was delicious. Enjoyed soup, gyro and sorry can't remember the other item. I'll be back to try other items. It was very busy for lunch during the week.

Our food was tasty; good service; nice decor. Only gripe was the seating. Chairs look great but are uncomfortable. At one table, the guests brought foam cushions.

Having visited Greece in the past, I find this place has the most authentic Greek food in the Twin Cities area. We are never disappointed in the taste and quality of the food prepared. Anna , the owner and cook , is absolutely fabulous. I always get the lamb dish or a gyros. I highly rate it and the ambiance... More

Wife and I just ate dinner there to celebrate our anniversary. I've eaten there before, but always at lunch. Dinner was fantastic. Our waitress was perfect, charming, and full of information. I was talked into the special Greek dish of lamb shoulder and cracked wheat. Wow! Had the flaming cheese with fresh warm pita bread. My wife ordered the lemon-lamb... More
