“Made Birthday girl cry”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Due to terrible weather half of our party could not attend. The Manager was awful about it. The birthday girl (of all people) was told she must purchase gift certificates for each person that could not attend. I understand that there was a reservation (on a busy weekend) for twice the people that went, however, upon reservation she was left unaware of Gift Certificate Policy. Happiness turned to tears and plenty of harsh words, the situation was horrible and extremely embarrassing for each one of us. Unfortunate. Thumbs down for Management.

“Last Visit For This Local”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

This was my second visit, a nice evening out with a visiting friend. We were not wowed by our initial visit several months ago but decided to try it again. Unfortunately it failed to wow again and left a dent in the wallet!
The place is very charming, what I'd imagine an authentic Greek restaurant would be in Greece. The server was wonderful though the food was slow to come. The food was a disappointment; portions were much smaller than the first visit for the price you pay. I usually will pack up leftovers to take home for lunch but it wasn't worth it this time. The rice was dry, the lamb tough and very salty. We received 2 split dishes, zucchini and the dip, both portions were very small for 2 people and we were charged when we asked for an extra tzaziki (sp). Our bill for 2 meals and a shared salad was $114 and neither of us had an alcoholic beverage. Overall, our family is done with this restaurant and will not go back until the pricing is more in line with the quality.

“Good food but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Went here with a group, although its fun to go with a lot of people I don't know if this place is the best for it.
Making the arrangements beforehand was difficult and frustrating, we were cramped in, and they are right the chairs are horrible!!! My legs hurt the whole time. The food was very good but we didn't get enough. We had the group meze meal so we ate "family style", some people went without a course because there wasn't enough to go around. I wasn't full at the end of the night, and after paying $50 a person you would think you'd be stuffed.
The entertainment was great, belly dancer, Greek dancing, plate smashing, the works!
I would consider going back here but not with a large group and not in the busy season.

“Fantastic Greek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Wonderful Moussaka. I love their ribs, octopus and all the usual Greek stuff. The roast potatoes are soooo good - best I've ever had - and I'm Irish!! Service? - so you may have to wait a little if they're busy . . . I hate restaurants where you never have to wait because then you know nothing is freshly made. A little pricey but worth every penny.

“Delicious authentic Greek!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Amazing food and a lovely place. Lots of Greek culture vested in this joint. Totally a great stop by on a cold day.
