The fish is fresh, the service is friendly and efficient, the flavors are interesting and tasty, the wine list os reasonably priced (for the area). This place has been open for a few years and never disappoints - what an upgrade to the neighborhood from the dusty old place that was there before. Get a reservation, sit by the open... More

We waited 30 minutes to be seated but the food was well worth it, and the service very friendly. Definitely returning.

One of our favorite "go-to" spots in NYC this light, airy Haven of Hellenic Happiness never disappoints. Apps are delicious, as are the many seafood dishes offered; Chicken and lamb also completely satisfy. Desserts are complimentary: Baklava, Galactabouriko and Chocolate mousse aren't "quite" loukoumades but a welcomed sweet ending.

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.
