“Spot on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Excellent service coupled with friendly efficient manner, great explanation of meal/ menu. Prices ok, small plates are really small though. Main courses the swordfish and the salmon, were excellent. Nice clean bright restaurant and fine for families too. Happy hour wines were six dollars a glass. On main road, 3rd avenue.
Considered 4 or 5 stars and decided on 5.
I was particularly impressed with the excellent, just right, service And the fish courses.

“Wonderful Fresh Fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Four of us had dinner April 12, 2013. Service was very good--friendly, joyful, playful, and while prompt, not intrusive. Small dishes are fabulous. Main course Scorpio fish was delicious, and waitress recommendation to eat cheek meat was spot on--this was one of the best prepared and tastiest fish I've enjoyed. A little pricey, but well worth it. Will definitely return.

“Excellent mezethakia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Seven of us from a nearby church came here for lunch on (American) Easter Sunday. The place was surprisingly non-crowded. Most of us made a meal out of shared "mezethakia" (appetizers). We started out with the dip assortment and stuffed grape leaves, which were accompanied by generous helpings of warm pita bread. All the dips were very tasty; the spicy cheese for once wasn't overwhelmingly spicy. We followed this up with spanakopita--spinach triangles served piping hot, grilled octopus, and stuffed portobello mushrooms. All were excellent. Only one person had a complaint: an elderly gentleman said his chicken and lemon soup was too salty. The waitress was very attentive and cheerful. We will definitely come back!

“A small Greek restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We arrived late in the evening and the restaurant was about half full. OUr waitress was very attentive and the appetizers arrived quickly but after waiting for 30 minutes for the main dish, we were ready to leave. Watching all the take-out orders carried out, we suspect the kitchen caters to the home diners. The food was okay, but certainly not worth the wait.

“A bit pricy, but great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Our first visit - what a busy place! But the service was good and the food better. We shared a Greek salad, then had chicken kebob and the sea bass for main course, with glasses of Syrah.

Nice touch - order 2 entrees and they bring some delicious Greek pastries for dessert.

We will, as the Terminator would say, "...be baaack!"
