“World class Greek food!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I went several times with various people during my visit, the food is spectacular! The setting ang service is great! The business is just getting going, and it seems the established don't like the competition- I can understand why, it's amazing!

“Want to be Greek restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We have gone here twice - first time when they had first opened and the service was slow to almost non-existent. the food was over cooked and the plate consisted of rice over cooked and potatoes overcooked and meat. No vegetables other than wilted lettuce 1 chunk of cucumber that half a cherry tomato. GROSS. The second time we ordered roast lamb. Again no vegetables. Half a plate of rice, 4 potatoes and lambs ribs over roasted and more like a stew. Will not go back. Food in Greece is not like this - we've been all over Greece and never served such a poor meal. They weren't afraid to charge for this slop either.

“Poor service, foods okay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went for a birthday celebration, the only table in the place other than a couple who arrived after us. It took 30 minutes for drinks, and every drink was made incorrectly. Food was pretty good, but service was slow or none existent.
