You have to try this place! When we want great greek food we would go to Astoria but now we come here. We always go with friends (4-6 adults) and order a table full of food for everyone to pick. We always order at least 1 Xoriatiki, 1 Marouli, 1 Xtipiti, a sampling of the dips, 2 pita bread, 2 Patates, 1 Xtapodi, Pikilia for half the number of people we have and 2 bottles of Retsina. Make sure you notice that the Xtapodi (grilled octopus) is market price which we usually pay between $20-$25 for the dish but in our opinion it is worth it! We have ordered all of the side dishes on the menu and love all if them. we have never had a dinner plate or even a gyro or souvlaki sandwich. We prefer the little bit of a good variety of food, it is what greek eating is about! I gave 4s for service and atmosphere because it can get loud and crowded which can slow the waitstaff down.
