Good food, intelligent portions, very well priced wine list. Excellent friendly service. Outside sitting OK if you don't mind traffic noise. Avoid the bread and the bar area (loud and cramped)

I can't help wondering if this restaurant has changed, or if the prices have changed. During our meal (early, weeknight) there were several parties, birthdays, etc. The result was a very loud restaurant, lights dimming and brightening, music going loud. I say this because the wait staff seemed very good at the singing and lighting and the restaurant must care... More

This restaurant was recommended by the daughter of old friends we were meeting in the city, not having seen them for 6 years. It turns out that it was a great find. The restaurant has outside seating and some big open windows, but most of the seating is inside in a cool looking but comfortable space. We were a bit... More

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
