My family has been to this restaurant several times and the food has been consistently good. My daughter has significant food allergies and they have always been very careful and accommodating.

I have been to this Greek restaurant several times. Best Greek food since I moved back from Europe. Service was slow the night we went, but that could have been a rarity
