Came for an early dinner to beat the rush and had a tasty meal with good service. Started with the tomatosalata (excellent but would prefer portion was smaller) followed by the plaki (tasty sea bass filet). But six dollars for an iced tea without offering...More

We wanted a place that was vegetarian friendly but satirizing to carnivores. The Ethos got the bill. The meat ball appetizer was amazing with delicacy spiced meatballs grilled over an open flame in a tomato sauce. The gigantante Lima beans were a hit. The humus...More

Very nice Greek restaurant in the east side. Dimly lit and a nice selection on Mediterranean dishes. It’s east side so a bit pricey, however they offered a complimentary hummus app and dessert. The wine selection was ok. The service was great! They apparently are...More
