“Food good...service could have been a little "wiser".”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

My husband and I do not have much experience in Greek food and we did like it. We had Moussaka and Gyros. It tasted great though we thought it was expensive for what you get. We spent $40 for two lunch plates, one Greek coffee. The food was good, it was the service that could have made our time there more worth our one-time visit.

Our waitress was young so there were a couple of things she didn't stop to consider that really could have made our experience better.

When we sat, we asked for coffee. She told us about Greek coffee. We asked a few questions about it and then ordered one. One thing she forgot to mention is that Greek coffee is sweet. We did note that the flavor of the coffee was wonderful ...but it never came up that it was sweet. We don't drink sweet coffee. We mention it when she returns and she said, "oh..i could have left the sugar out". But not knowing anything about Greek Coffee and her sharing her knowledge with us....she could have told us how it comes....or that we had a choice. Small thing...but a wiser more experienced waitress would have mentioned that it came already sweetened unless you request it otherwise.

Second, from the street you can see people enjoying their meal under umbrella tables on an upper deck and it looks like fun so we asked to sit outside. It was a warm day and she sat us at a small bistro table without an umbrella. She, like me saw that it was in the shade so we thought it would be fine. Little did we know, but she could have known...that 15 minutes later the sun would begin to shift and heat up our table area. We didn't ask to move because we could see that there were no other tables available, but by the time our food arrived (they are a little slow - especially when you're getting hot :) my right arm was baked. By the time we were done eating we were so hot, we just wanted to leave and it sort of ruined the experience for us.

“Good food, Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Great portion sizes on appetizers. Entree size was good. Overall food was very tasty. Moussaka had undercooked veggies in it. When we informed the waiter he immediately apologized and offered to have something else made. We were stuffed from the appetizers so we just had the dish comped. I would eat here again.

“Good Greek food, good service, nice outside patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

We went on a very warm Friday night and got a street side table with a view of Colorado Avenue. Decor and everything quite nice and staff friendly and gave good service.

We all enjoyed our meals and the deserts were excellent. During the meal it started to rain but the staff quickly brought down the blinds and offered us alternative seating. I choose a French wine which I thought was ordinary, but it was my choice.
