I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere in this intimate, nicely decorated restaurant. Everything was well-prepared and moderately priced.

I really like this restaurants. I had a Lang shank which I really enjoy. I would have liked the piece of lamb to have been bigger just because I was very hungry, but plate sizes are large. The lentils soup is excellent in winter.

So there are two competing Mediterranean restaurants almost across the street from each other. This is the better one. The meat is a better cut and the service is impeccable. It's smaller and you'll sit very close to the table next to you but it is worth it for the food. The mini pitas they bring you are so warm... More

Such good food, little puffy pita pillows of yumminess😄 pretty decorations and live music too, good for date night or as a place to bring kids and introduce them to kebabs, hummus and baklava!

Another one of our frequent places, the food and service are great. The decor is authentic and has you checking it all out. The only downside is lack of space. It's a bit tight (and usually full) to get around inside. Get the lamb (Friday, I believe)

Courteous servers but clueless... promises but no delivery on service... definitely need to get them to keep their eyes open..when a customer calls, raises their hands, and tries to get attention.. at least acknowledge the patron... and go by the table...dont just ignore them...NO servers took ownership of a single table... each one thought the other was taking care of...
