“Food more attractive than restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Stopped in for an afternoon get-together for two. Presented a Living Social coupon, graciously accepted without complaint. Menu has a wide variety of options (fish, meat, vegetarian) at a wide variety of price points. Had fish and chips and falafel in pita. Dishes arrived in reasonable time.
Food was good, fresh, and tasty. Service was excellent; entire staff friendly. Restaurant could benefit from updating; booths from closer attention to housekeeping. Worth your while. A pleasant experience.

“Great little find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Stumbled on this on way back to hotel after 10hr day. Walked in straight from construction site was greeted with a very warm welcome regardless of our attire. Service was great, Food was even better. Not big into the greek food scene but love to try different things this fit the bill for me. There weeknight three course specials are a bargain, cost us less than a meal at Fridays and was more food and way better. Came back the following night dressed in the same manner and greeted this time, by the same gentleman, with a friendly hand shake and a welcome back, server wasn't as good this time but not terrible, Seemed young maybe inexperienced, but still good experience overall. Would deffintely eat there again and will try to find there other locations.

“AYHANS”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went there with a groupon. They had 1 bottle of greek beer and the stuffed flounder was awful. It smelt fishy. Then since it was a groupn the first time and near home I tried again for a greek pizza. It was small, soggy and not cheap. I am done trying. Blahhh place.

“Very authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Went with the family while displaced by Hurricane Sandy. Great Saganaki (not on the menu but they make on request). Avgilemino soup not as good. Lovely decor makes it upscale but casual and relaxed.

“Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Had an early dinner with my family on a Saturday night. Falafel was dry. Shish kabob was bland. The greek salad was large and good enough for two to share however we ordered salmon on top and the portion was very small and dry. The wait staff made more then one mistake. Our waitress who seemed very flustered brought us a salad we did not order, over charged us on two items on our check, and never asked us how our meal was. Another server brought us someone else's doggy bag and I even saw a waitress lift up her shirt to scratch an itch on her stomach while holding a full plate of food. How gross. It really felt like an episode from Seinfeld. Won't be going back anytime soon.
