“Great food close to home”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The service was up there with the best service we have ever had at a restaurant... and the food... oh wow! Thank you groupon. We have lived in the area for about 20 years and have never gone to here. A groupon came up so we thought we tried it... and thank goodness we did! The braised short ribs are to die for. They have a really great mix of tapas, italian and greek food.

The only downside was the lady sitting behind us was really loud. Hope she's not there when we go back!

“Great Food, Good Service”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

This restaurant really shouldn't promote itself as Greek as it provides much more than an ethnic theme. The newly updated menu gives lots of choices for people not wanting the traditional souvlaki or roast lamb. They list a wide variety of appys and salads. I tried the orange and baby lettuce with prawns and a great dressing - with an order of pita, more than enough for a main meal. My friend had the steak tenderloin and it was perfectly cooked with a generous portion of crunchy vegetables.
Wait staff was courteous, charming and prompt. Interesting drinks menu too!
The only challenge with Sokela is the location. They're right across from a gas station and could benefit from some kind of screening on their patio to improve the view. Otherwise, worth the visit.
