The fish was good I have allergies to some foods and I told the server but the side dish was not free of this ingredient.

Every time I eat here, I try something new. It's always the best! If you like good food, Greek food, you've come to the right place!

I can't tell you how many times I have been disappointed by so-called "Greek" restaurants. But not this time. Truly authentic and delicious. Lots of dishes to try, but you MUST have the Saganaki as an appetizer.

This was by far one of the very best Greek restaurants I've eaten at aside from those found in Greece! Taverna style decor that was cozy and smelled just like the Plaka In Greece, wonderful aroma of garlic and oregano! Very extensive and authentic Greek food all made to order. Stewed Lamb with orzo, Greek salad, spanakopita, Greek meatballs, lemon... More

Everything is fresh and authentic, we had several different dishes . The wait staff were knowledgeable, professional , and friendly . They explained dishes that we were not familiar with to ensure that they met with our dining experience . Recommend this restaurant to those interested in authentic dishes and a bit of history .

Our group had pastitsio, a gyro, Greek salad and taramosalata. Everything was FRESH and tasty. Lemon chicken and shrimp soup were very good too. Service was attentive and friendly. The weekday lunch prices were fair - I wish we had more opportunities during weekdays to go. Based on our experience, I'm guessing dinner is fantastic.

We went there with a party of 6, one couple having recommended the place. It was nice and empty and quiet when we arrived, but packed and noisy in no time. Fortunately we had a nice corner table in the back room. Although the meat eaters in our group all loved their dinners, I have to say, as a vegetarian,... More
