“Excellent Food, Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I make sure to eat here every time I visit NYC. This restaurant is customer oriented and the staff greets returning customers like close friends and new customers as invited house guests. If I lived in Manhattan, this would definitely be one of my regular restaurants of choice - as much for the food (excellent & plentiful) as the atmosphere.

“Looks like it used to be good, but past it now”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Stopped off here for food on first night in NYC. Flattered by recommendations all over walls of awards from early 2000s.....our experience was less than award winning. Food was obviously heated up and not fresh. Would not recommend.

“A great meal, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

I highly recommend this restaurant. We eat Greek food often and this restaurant is a great place to go for quality traditional Greek food at an affordable price. Good selection of Greek wines. We are always trying new Greek restaurants in manhattan (close to home) when we are too tired or lazy to venture out to Astoria, so we will definitely be eating at this restaurant again.

“A Greek Gem in the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have returned many times to our Greek favorite in the city.
Can be very busy and crowded,but, the food is excellent and good value for N.Y.C.
Excellent grilled fish is a standout.
My favorite Shrimp or Mussels Santorini style, won't be better in Athens!

“Fresh, delicious Greek food in Hell's Kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Nice but not stuffy atmosphere, excellent service and wonderful food. For our party of three we ordered the Tzatziki w/ pita bread, small Greek salad (which was huge), Bifteki (simply delicious), pork kebob w/ rice, and for dessert, the yogurt with honey and nuts. Everything was super fresh and delicious. We went back for a second visit and the experience and food were just as amazing.
