This was the old Havana Post restaurant. Located a few blocks from the UN. Very nice atmosphere and decor. The waitress was on point even being so busy. I had the Sea Bass outstanding. Nice house wine choice. A bit pricey but, you get what you pay for. I will come back soon.

This is the perfect Greek restaurant for lunch - bright, airy and casual - a few blocks from the U.N. Portions were generous and served promptly. Fish is a specialty, and the prix fixe a wonderful deal and delicious.

As a New Yorker, I frequent this restaurant for lunch and dinner and I am never disappointed. From the decor (brings me back to my vacations in Greece) to the atmosphere overall, this is a fantastic place. They always, always have the freshest fish, grilled to perfection. The salads are fresh and awaken your palette and the wine pairing (Great... More

As a regular at this very authentic Greek restaurant I can say that it never disapoints. There is a vibrant bar scene that is a great seat to dine at. The bartenders are great in every sense. The overall service and attitude is wonderfully Greek and matches the quality of the food. If there is anything I could say that's... More

Everyone who has eaten even once in this restaurant raves about its dishes, and rightly so. The octopus is outstanding, perhaps the best I have ever had, and the branzini just as good and so fresh! In addition to seafood, the Greek dishes are also excellent: the moussaka, and the roast potatoes are practically addictive! The service is friendly, welcoming... More

I had the pleasure of eating here last night with a group of ladies for a friend's birthday. It was noisy, packed and fun. The food was well priced and delicious. I always order branzini so comparing restaurants is easy. Served with the head (ask them not to bring it if it bothers you) , the entire fish is served... More

We had a very pleasant Prix fixe lunch here with friends. The courses were consistently good, with a little time to relax between them and the house wine was a nice companion. We all had seafood and the different choices were all well prepared.

One of the best Greek spots in the entire city (yes in Midtown East). Filled with Greeks (and other Euros) -- you may forget you're in the USA after 10pm when it really gets going. Prepare to have your table given to regulars that happen to stroll in after you (just drink at the bar until you finally get seated).... More

The broiled lobster with Greek fries is amazingly tasty and delicious. The next day we went back for soft-shelled crabs, which I also loved. It gets very crowded, but I can understand that!

I felt like we had walked into Greece..the room, the open windows and the menu--the fish was very tasty as were the soft shell crabs. The crowd is a very European looking crowd. Not inexpensive, service ok--great food and atmosphere.
