“Grieta European Mediterranean food”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

Real good Mediterranean quality food and specially grilled fish which is difficult to find in América cookers who understand how to prepare good fish!

“Sour Cherry Heaven”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Naive maybe, but I didn't recognize this as a Greek restaurant until we sat down and read the menu.

The food was fabulous, the restaurant buzzing with that upbeat 'event' feel that a popular restaurant has and the aroma in the air was delicious to say the very least.

The hit of the night, after a delicious meal, was the heavenly flavour-rich sour cherry ice cream that arrived with the molten chocolate cake. Wow! Taste bud delight with the sourness and taste explosion of really cherries. Yum!

Only one criticism related to service, we were a party of five and they sat us with a chair on the end of a table for four along a busy aisle by the kitchen. The staff kept knocking the person in the extra chair as they went by, causing her actual pain on one occasion and to spill on several others. Very tacky for a place this elegant and expensive.
