My husband and I do not have much experience in Greek food and we did like it. We had Moussaka and Gyros. It tasted great though we thought it was expensive for what you get. We spent $40 for two lunch plates, one Greek coffee. The food was good, it was the service that could have made our time there more worth our one-time visit.
Our waitress was young so there were a couple of things she didn't stop to consider that really could have made our experience better.
When we sat, we asked for coffee. She told us about Greek coffee. We asked a few questions about it and then ordered one. One thing she forgot to mention is that Greek coffee is sweet. We did note that the flavor of the coffee was wonderful ...but it never came up that it was sweet. We don't drink sweet coffee. We mention it when she returns and she said, "oh..i could have left the sugar out". But not knowing anything about Greek Coffee and her sharing her knowledge with us....she could have told us how it comes....or that we had a choice. Small thing...but a wiser more experienced waitress would have mentioned that it came already sweetened unless you request it otherwise.
Second, from the street you can see people enjoying their meal under umbrella tables on an upper deck and it looks like fun so we asked to sit outside. It was a warm day and she sat us at a small bistro table without an umbrella. She, like me saw that it was in the shade so we thought it would be fine. Little did we know, but she could have known...that 15 minutes later the sun would begin to shift and heat up our table area. We didn't ask to move because we could see that there were no other tables available, but by the time our food arrived (they are a little slow - especially when you're getting hot :) my right arm was baked. By the time we were done eating we were so hot, we just wanted to leave and it sort of ruined the experience for us.
