Spacious dining rooms, tall ceilings, open kitchen, great service, and an interesting menu! The sautéed octopus was nicely prepared, the moussaka certainly the best I ever had, and the rotisserie lamb was very tender though plainly presented. The place was packed so reserve well in advance.

This wasn't my first time here but I really wanted to leave a review of the place as it's one of the best places in this side of town. I can't give any recommendations as every single thing on the menu is fantastic. On the downside the reservations are difficult to make, but on the upside once you make it... More

This place is just absolutely sublime, from the service and décor to the food. Served by a delightful brunette waitress with long hair on the evening of 7/21/14. She provided excellent menu suggestions and was extremely attentive. Every single dish that arrived was immaculately presented and delicious. The baked feta was my personal favourite! Such a wonderful dining experience and... More

This place is amazing! The ambience is fantastic..low lighting just the right noise level and a fantastic wait staff. Our waitress, Jordan was so knowlegeable and helpful, going over all our questions about the menu and helping us pair the right wine with our food. The grilled octopus, homemade hummus, and portobello mushroom small plates were delightful and the grilled... More

Great server named jordan! Recommendations were spot on! I had goat stew which was recommended. Probably would not have chosen this on my own. Was great! Everyone else loved their food as well. Two had fresh fish and loved it!

We went here for my boyfriend's birthday dinner Friday night when in town for a long weekend. The atmosphere is very charming and rustic and I loved all the different rooms. We were put in the room with the open kitchen which is always fun to watch them at work. Our waiter was great and helpful and very smiley and... More

This place will awaken every one of your senses - it is the absolutely best Greek food I have ever had. Every dish is outstanding - start with the smelt; whole fish presentation is a feast for your eyes, goat stew is outstanding - totally amazing flavors. Make this a must do when in SF.
