This is truly authentic Greek Food at its best. While the location can be difficult to get to they do a really good job of staying on top of their service and food. I've celebrated graduations and birthdays here and let me tell you, this group knows how to throw a party. They have a menu with an array of... More

We were only in town for a quick business session and wanted something different. This place doesn't look like much from the outside and is in a very eclectic mix of a neighborhood but we like Greek and thought we would give it a go.... Oh My Gosh!!! The flavors and quality of food we were served was enough to... More

I got the feeling that they wanted to rush us throughout entire meal. The food was average, at best, and the prices were high. I can do better than this.

My boyfriend and I came here in February of 2015! We had driven in from Texas for an audition! We had a celebratory dinner later that night and could not have had a better time! The food is stellar and you felt like a regular from the second you step inside and are greeted with smiles and an exhilarating "OPA!"... More

We celebrated a birthday there. Between the abundant and tasty food, the bellydancing, the manager checking on us, and the tasty sangria, we felt like we were well taken care of. Food was just a bit salty.

This restaurant is fantastic. Ya-Ya's chicken, the lasagne, lamb chops, etc. - all great. The portions are large, so keep that in mind when ordering appetizers. They have a great option for large parties that includes samples of a number of menu items at a flat price (you won't leave hungry with this option). There is also good (though somewhat... More

Friends took me to this restaurant for my birthday. It was a confusing experience. A large restaurant with a back room for shows, there was a separate entrance where we were told to enter, since we had bought tickets for the burlesque show, but someone in the restaurant insistently waved us to the front entrance. After a loud Greek conversation... More

I was visiting family for a few days in Atlanta. My sister had raved about this place after she was taken here for her birthday. She had had an amazing time, even dancing on the table, and her lamb dinner was amazing. So this was the place she was taking me to dinner. They open at 5pm and we arrived... More
