The waitress was very hurried and had limited hospitality. The appetizers and the baklava dessert were the best part.

Food delicious. Service terrific. Usually, not noisy and easy to talk. On one visit, large noisy family at next table, lessened pleasantness of experience, Have gone for weekend brunch and for dinner -- both terrific. Outside dining in good weather is also a wonderful asset,
