“Good Food, Good Wine....LOUD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a cheese dish, melted & fabulous, from the app menu. The drinks were excellent, wine selection is above average, beers are good. But WOW is this place LOUD. You will have to yell to have a conversation if you are here during peak hours. Stone & metal surfaces just reverb the noise around & around. Painful design.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Very good Greek and Mediterranean food in small portions. I usually go there with two friends and it's perfect to try a small bites of several items. The mini gyros are really good and I've been to Greece, they are authentic besides the size. Always happy with the food and service!

“Great small plates in a great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

This place had a very cool atmosphere, it was dark and cozy and quiet, but with a good energy. Service was great and the food was just fantastic. I recommend starting with the Saganaki. It's "fried cheese" on a whole other level. They set fire to it at the table! Three girls shared the Cava Grill which included 2 lamb chops, 2 chicken souvlaki, 3grilled meatballs, and 3 lamb meatballs. It was AMAZING and we were stuffed afterwards!

“Great Happy Hour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

My friend and I went for happy hour. It was great. The fried cheese was off the chain and the Mojitos were good for the price. Go early - Gul is a great bartender!!

Had a drink and dessert here on a Friday night. Friendly, attentive, hard-working staff. Great "cave" atmosphere.
