“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed the food and our waitstaff did a wonderful job however they keep the temperature way too cold in there. It is a lovely restaurant and an enjoyable evening but if you are going be sure to take sweaters or coats. It was definite draw back.

“Great food and cool atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Enjoyed the grouper entree and the fresh vegetables. We have visited here a few times and each time the food has been fresh, flavorful, and yummy. Would have given 5 starts if the service was consistent. We have had inconsistent service which would not keep us from returning but does weigh in with recommendations. Enjoy.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Having been to Greece last year we were happy to eat at this restaurant -great food, both authentic Greek and other creative steak and seafood dishes, great service and atmosphere.
Our group of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. A little hard to find with GPSs but well worth the effort! Highly recommend. We were staying just south of Rt. 40 at exit 125 and drove over to this restaurant.

“Great service, wonderful food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Had a large party of 6 adults and 3 children. Service was excellent. Hummus, the fried cheese and spanikopita apps were good as were the fresh salads. Server recommended the grouper stuffed with crab and it was excellent. NY strip was cooked well. Loud atmosphere and difficult to hear each other at times. Will be back.
