“My Absolute Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Awesome food, awesome service, awesome location, everything awesome! I have been here many times, always a fantastic experience. The greek nachos are a must try for a starter! Also the blueberry mojito is to die for. The staff is also always very accommodating and attentive, the owner(s) are also very friendly. Highly recommended.

“Authentic Greek Food and Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

My fiance and I ordered the greek platter for two. It is a lot of food so be prepared to be there for awhile if you order this! The greek salad and mousaka were excellent. We also really enjoyed the bread and oil served before our meal (They sell the oil for $18/bottle so we got one to go). The lemon potatoes and chicken slouvaki were not the best we've had but still tasted good.
We also received the best service we've had at a restaurant in a long time. The waittress was prompt and very friendly.
We would definitely recomment this restaurant!

“Good greek food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I quite like this restaurant. The location is good (parking's not great though...), the atmosphere is nice, the staff are decent, and the food's pretty good. Their spanakopita is pretty great - best I've had in a Greek restaurant in a while.
Just don't order the coffee.

“Always Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Second visit in two years. Beautiful classy decor, friendly accommodating staff, reasonably priced delicious food. What more could one ask for. It is simply great, try the excellent Avgolemono Soup.
