The Mediterranean food here is excellent and the service is great. It's a fun place since the owners come out and play instruments, sing, dance and they get the patrons involved. I didn't eat there on my last trip, but I did walk by and...More

We loved the Mediterranean menu, high Greek influence and a few others. And the service was fantastic - knowledgeable, fast, attentive. The place was packed, that's why we stopped, and we lucked into seating without a reservation. Get one.
