Eggplant 🍆 starter was amazing chick pea thing not so much.. Squid 🐙 special with sausage was a definite no with our group. Brussel... More

We totally enjoyed our dinner at this lovely Mediterranean restaurant serving northern Greek food. The menu is designed for small plates. It was suggested by our very attentive staff, that we order 2 to 3 items each. We ordered 5, however our dip platter was great, but probably better for a larger group than the 2 of us.We also ordered... More

We were in the City visiting our two adult children, one of whom LOVES this place for brunch. We reserved a nice table in the back, ordered bottomless pineapple mimosas, and studied the menu. There was a lot to like. We tried several spreads including the chickpea, eggplant, and taramasalata selections. These were served with perfect hot pillowy pita, and... More

Shared a lot of menu items with a table of 6. Everything was good, but nothing I found that was memorable or would go back for a second visit. Good neighborhood restaurant. The staff was attentive and offered suggestions.

We went to the sandwich side of their restaurant for lunch and it was delicious! I got a sandwich called the Notorious P.I.G. it had roast pork and pineapple and chicharonnes all on a toasted sesame seed long roll. Staff was very friendly.

This was our first visit to Kapnos, and hands down, it was one of the best meals we have ever had. We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairing. We told Darcy, our server, a few things we weren't particularly interested in and a few things that we definitely wanted to have and she and the kitchen handled it... More

I'm totally surprised as I was expecting the best quality based on recommendation of one of my friends . The Starters were not up to the level . Main courses , Lamb and Octopus were average in total not a good experience . I will not come again
