“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

Called to make reservation and to let them know I would be brining my Mother and several of her 70 plus year old friends for her birthday. I then called the day of to confirm as I wanted to make sure we had a decent seat for the entertainment since it was a special occasion. Upon arrival we were placed upstairs in a dark loft area where we could see absolutely nothing. At least it was a Saturday night and the belly dancer did come up the stairs but as far as the rest of the entertainment we had none. I could see if we were walk ins but I took great care and they indicated that they would accomodate. The food was decent but when my mom and her friends asked a couple of questions waitress appeared annoyed and continued to appear that way most of the night. It was ok but not at all what I expected or had heard. Definitely wont rush back.

“Don't Go Out of Your Way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Having not had our reservation honored here on a busy Friday night last year we came back only because some friends wanted to sample the Greek fare. Their food was good, but my mahi mahi tasted as though it had been cooked in oil left over from somebody else's order. Fastidious diners will not be amused by the paper napkins on the floor, thrown down by the servers when they hourly abandon all of their customers to prance around the room for several minutes to Greek music. Recommended only if you really want Greek food or want to hear the live Greek music on Friday night and cannot get out of this neighborhood.

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

For gods sake clean up the toilet paper / tissue paper stuck on the ceiling after each celebration - it is not cute to have it hanging above one's meal for the duration. And for those who don't know why it is there, how do you think the restaurant comes across to those customers? i am tempted to walk over to the a/c and turn it off and watch it all come falling down on diners plates. Now that I've gotten that out of the way.. the food is pretty good! Having gone there several times the food for some reason seems to get a little boring, I'm not sure what it is.

“Welcome Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

Ordered gyros and souvlakis and enjoyed very much! Good portion, but not oversized. Delicious and fresh. Would've given 5 stars across board if waitress more attentive and friendly. But would definitely return!!!
