Great little restaurant with authentic food. Always have a great meal here. Veal Milanese is awesome! Their hummus is wonderful and they even have a special that has avocado and balsamic reduction - very flavorful! Service is top notch. It is BYOB so don't forget the wine. There is a liquor store nearby too.

Better for a basic lunch than dinner. Unadventurous menu and lacking the sophistication to make this happen. For basic GYRO - place is fine.

Went Sunday evening at 6pm. There was a large party finishing and we thank god because they were so noisy we would have wanted to leave. (Acoustics in this restaurant are not very good.) But after the large group left it was very pleasant. Service was good and food came prepared as ordered and was good. We've been here before... More

I am surprised to read all of the positive reviews! The food was OK, but there was 4 of us who only get together twice a year and we do like to chat! Chatting at any decibel was impossible inside and it certainly was not full as "everybody" apparently does not eat there. Since it was a nice day we... More

This restaurant is in my home town. There are not many good, non-Italian, restaurants in my town. This non-Italian restaurant is probably the best in town. We always go with other couples. Everyone eats here, although probably not as frequently as the owners would like. We had a reservation for 4 at a certain time. When we got there, we... More

We love this place. The Salmon dish is my favorite, but the shish kabobs are all top notch. The service is always good, but it's the food that makes this place great. Highly recommended.

Atmosphere - When dining outside on their 2nd floor deck this is the best dining atmosphere of any restaurant in Livingston. My grilled calmari was simply prepared but yet it was the best I have ever had and my wife's spinach pie was excellent. Lunch prices are moderate given the excellent quality.

I was in the area on a Saturday to have lunch and decided to try Thavma Mediterranean Grill based on positive reviews. First thing first. I want reviewers to know Thavma posted their complete menu, lunch and dinner, which is located on the street level. After we were seated and reviewed the menu, we noticed it was missing the lunch...

I eat here quite often with friends for lunch. The salads are great and so are the Greek specialties. I think the portions are a good size. The wait staff is friendly.

It's a good local restaurant, but not my choice. You pretty much must have a reservation on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings or you will wait a very long time. Food is usually pretty consistent, but last visit my wife's fish special was excellent whereas my lamb and orzo was not very good.
