Wow! The food here was absolutely fabulous! We had the appetizer combination with more stuff than I can remember! That, in itself, could be a meal! We split the kebab combination - beef, lamb, and chicken - that melted in our mouths! The wine list isn't very extensive and is pretty expensive for the class of wines. Surprisingly, the service...

The happy hour has good prices. I was very surprised that the cab. sauv. sold for cheap, was that good. Staff was attentive and and the food, for the most part was good. Unfortunately, a Greek restaurant that over cooks lamb, is questionable. I had the Gyros platter. It has a good presentation, but the lamb is thin and when... More

Wednesday night at Paymon's, get 25% off bill. Never had a bad meal or poor service here. The Staff is friendly and all know their menu and individual dishes to perfection; atmosphere is calming. On the bucket list is to some day eat in the Hookah Lounge. Till then, will continue to enjoy Paymon's.

The atmosphere is relaxing, a cozy home feel. Staff was friendly and polite. You can't go wrong in choosing any pasta dish, they're all perfect and generous portions. You can finish off by taking a sip of espresso, which is quite good! We have been told blueberry margaritas are excellent, but we haven't actually tasted them. Prices are accessible too.

I can't say enough nice things about this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was fresh and flavorful. The portions are also enormous, so consider sharing things with 2-3 people. I started with a side of hummus that was big with fresh and warm pita. The hummus was subtle at first, but the garlic and... More

We all had different items and everyone liked their choice. The waitress didn't know what ouzo was (it was on the menu), but she brought it just the way I asked for it. We also ordered saganaki as a dramatic appetizer, but she brought it out with the flame already extinguished, but it was still tasty. (some mumblings about insurance).
