I wasn't sure if this was still a Greek restaurant, so I stopped for lunch since I was passing by. Though it bills itself as a "Mediterranean" grill, the bulk of the menu is Greek. I had the taramosalata to start - huge portion with grilled pita and the lunch moussaka and side salad. The Greek salad was a perfect... More

The food is good and well prepared, but not fantastic. Hosts/hostesses could be friendlier. Servers are nicer, but their skill and efficiency varies. Better training for staff would help.

Went with a group of 8. We all enjoyed our very good food and the atmospher is very nice, but we sat at a long table and had trouble hearing people at other end of table. We've been here before but it just seemed noisier.

The restaurant is pleasant and there were more customers than I expected for a Tuesday night but it was not crowded. The staff is friendly and did an adequate job. I did get a little annoyed with the constant topping off of the water glasses even after we clearly said no - but that is a minor annoyance. The prices... More

Loved this restaurant! Outstanding food that was refreshing and delightful. one of the best babaghanoush i have tasted and the Baklava was a mouthful! The salad had generous bits of feta cheese. Must go for Greek food lovers.

I don't know anything about Greek food, but when my family wanted something different, we tried this place out. I'm VERY happy we did! Since I'm perpetually on a diet, I've been here several times and tried their different salads. ALL are excellent, especially the Spinach Salad which I elected to top with grilled calamari. What makes this dish amazing... More

I have only taken out food from here, and the greek salad is very good, and you get a very large portion even for a small salad. Grilled chicken added to it really makes it a huge meal that is large enough for two people. All of the dishes I have taken out are tasty and the portions generous.

Went for the second time. The food is very good and the service is attentive. Sitting outside one can almost feel as if they a in Europe. Prices are very reasonable and the portion size more than adequate. This is a byob and is very byob friendly. I look forward to frequenting often.
