This is right in the middle of 'Midtown Village' and close to the Convention Center, the Marriott and Lowes hotels. It has a very active bar scene after work, but we went for dinner. Everything is shareable and good. > The Greek salad was a good size and a good start > Always LOVE the Saganáki! (and they give you... More

This place was right down the street from my hotel. Very casual greek, but the greek salad with chicken was very good and huge. I ate there twice during my week long stay. Staff was nice, and there were always regulars in the place. I would eat there again.

We came upon this while walking...Saturday night without reservations but we were seated within minutes. Modern; clean; not too noisy.. The staff was very polite and caring as they answered our several menu questions...Their wine choices were adequate; the menu option I tried was fine; and the prices were moderate(around $14 a person or less)

My wife and I went here for a Valentine's Day dinner. First they tried to seat us at a table with a view of a parking garage, right by the door where a blast of 15 degree air blasted the table whenever the door opened. I asked for another table and they said they couldn't do that, IN AN EMPTY... More

There are a number of good Greek restaurants in Philadelphia, so we hadn't been to this one before. The decor is pleasant and non-intrusive, the service is good and also non-intrusive. The food is very good contemporary Greek, no moussaka in sight. Particularly good were the grilled octopus, which was soft and tasty and the special, which was butternut squash... More

We found this restaurant after the one we had planned to go to was too crowded and noisy. The menu looked very good and the ambiance was nice so we took a chance. Immediately, we were seated and our server came right over. I had the grilled octopus and my husband had the vegetable bread. Both were delicious. Then my... More

Our group of 4 shared about 10 small plates. Some items were delicious, but we thought the dips were just OK. But the service was good and we got seated right away. And the bill adds up quick, since you tend to order so many dishes.

I've been here for both dinner and the bar scene. Overall food was decent, but a little pricey. Their selection of summer cocktails was just right for the season and I recommend most of them - I don't think one person was disappointed with their choice. As for the bar scene, this place becomes an entirely different spot after 10... More
