This is just a quintessential SF restaurant. Great Mediterranean food, small place so you can go alone and feed comfortable or have a party! The food is consistently wonderful with large portions. Get the Mezze for two a glass of wine and sit back and enjoy. Casual, inexpensive, good atmosphere..... It has been my go to place for 30 years.

Hadn't read any reviews of this place but it was getting late and we were tired have't seen another restaurant that appealed we entered this place. Oh serendipidy what a fantastic restaurant. The staff were excellent and the night manager was a credit. He recommendedthe mezze for two which was delicious. Wine was on special at $10 off per bottle.... More

This place is fine if you've never had Mediterranean food outside of the US. Sorry, call me picky but the Greek lemon chicken soup was not very good as it didn't have any rice in it. It's not the way I remember having at in Greece or Greek restaurants in the US. I would not call it a destination restaurant.

I was looking for a nice place for dinner to go with my wife and daughter, nothing too fancy but also not McD's - this totally fit the bill. To further help us was the fact that it was Valentines Day and we were very happy that they didn't have a fixed menu. The 3 of us are vegetarians and... More

Outdoor heaters kept us warm as we sat outdoors on a chilly night, enjoying a light Middle Eastern dinner of lentil soup & salads. The hummous with one of the salads was pleasantly spiced; the soup was warm & tomato-ey with whole lentils. Service was friendly, and the street traffic was quiet (much quieter than the indoor seating, which kept... More

Saw the great reviews, checked out this place and the food was a real disappointment! I had the pomegranate chicken. The chicken was SO dry I felt like I was eating hair! The flavor wasn't that appealing either. The only reason why I gave it even a star is because the rice and hummus was pretty good.

...in the sense that it's just about okay and in the sense that it's worth passing on by. The hot mezes were lukewarm and the speed with which they arrived suggested that they were sat on a hotplate somewhere. The cold ones were reasonable enough although the houmous was very smooth and very thin, almost sauce-like in consistency, and was... More

Very eclectic looking place. Small, but near full upon arrival at 6:15 and crammed with waiting when we finished. Very much a very casual cafe. We had a good meal. The special was a vegetarian Moussaka so I took that and my wife a mediterranean salad with lots to sample. Moussaka was tasty, but different than meat based ones in... More

We have been to this restaurant on at least three occasions when visiting San Francisco. This latest visit to it for lunch was as good as usual. There is so much to choose from it's difficult to decide what to have. The locality is good - not in the middle of the tourist areas. The staff are efficient and helpful... More

Waiter was helpful with explaining dishes and we finally decided on the Mediterranean meza, a sampler of various foods. Many of them when quite delicious, especially the baba ganoush, tabbouleh, filo items, grape leaves. The wine we had went well with the food. Service was attentive, but not rushed. Wish we lived closer to this place!
