The food is exceptional and delicious. The atmosphere is hard surface and very loud and hard to hear. Lighting is dim and is nice for romantic dinners to stare into each other's eyes - We couldn't hear each other. The flaming cheese is way too salty. All other dishes yummy and prettily presented. Tapas with a Greek flare and so... More

Came here with a good friend last week and absolutely loved it. The lamb meatballs in particular melted in my mouth, and the brussel sprouts were killer. Will be back for sure.

The food was really very good, but portions are small even though they are meant to share. The hush puppies are a must have -- delicious!! The watermelon salad was also very good. The place is very small and was super loud because it was crowded (always a good sign!). The lighting was also very dim...everyone had to use the... More

I ordered a small variety of plates from apps to entree. Too full for dinner, but next time. Hummus and pita - delicious. Hangar steak - perfect, Falafel, fine and hush puppy cheese ok, but next time I will be trying their house specialty of the flaming cheese. Beet salad - good. Salmon - cooked perfectly, but did not like... More

I found a long black hair in my salad. The waitress reached over and took it out. They offer a free shot of Vodka for the hair, but I was to upset.

This places is a great place to go out with some friends are on a date. The style is Greek Tapas and they are excellent. It is a little pricey, but the food is great. If you are looking for a great atmosphere and great food and drink this is the place. If a buffet or large portions is your... More

it's a small place where they serve small plates, "tapas". there is a nice wine list to pair with the Spanish flair like dishes. this is a cute little place in my neighborhood- a romantic place to dine & wine.

If you need a real date night and want to "re"live dangerously then this is it. Have the filet mignon steak which never disappoints. The flaming cheese thing is fun to watch but don't eat it - just very salty. Appetizers are fun and the youngsters coming in to check each other out makes you relive your 20s. So nice... More

Always enjoy Mediterranean style food, a little apprehensive when the restaurant is in a mall. However on visit to Washington D.C. area there does seem to be quite a few good restaurants in malls. While waiting for other to arrive wife and I decided to try Cava's red sangria and found it to be quite delightful. At the first glance... More

This very successful set of Greek small-serving restaurants, with four in the DC area, one in LA, and several "express" smaller versions here and there, began in 2006. I visited the one in Rockville, where it all started, with some relatives who have known the owners for many years. Like most tapas-style eateries, this place is great for medium parties,... More
