This restaurant has gotten very popular. We used to be able to walk in at prime time and be seated. No longer. When we were there at both lunch and dinner, the patrons were local - not tourists, which is a good sign. The food...More

Good service, clean, not too loud, and very good food. I had the Pikilia and my girlfriend had the chicken breast. Both were excellent. We'll definitely return.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on the way to an off-Broadway show nearby. It reminded us of the delicious dinners we enjoy so much in Toronto's Greektown and it was the least expensive meal of our time in NYC. It was delicious, family run and...More

Visited here before a Broadway show and had high expectations given the trip advisor scores. Unfortunately we were very underwhelmed. The waiting staff were not at all personable, but didn't leave us alone either. After ordering our food, the starter arrived within 2mins and the...More
