Went this past weekend with a friend for a nice dinner. Had a table outside, very nice if the weather is good. The experience was a bit mared by the maitre'd roundly criticizing the hostesses for having left a guest in the middle of the restaurant without having led them to a table. While this is obviously not great service by the hostess, the maitre'd s behavior really was unprofessional and to do it in front of us started us off akimbo.

Nonetheless, the food was good as usual. Would recommend the cheese and the zucchini chips to start. The octopus wasn't so great this time. The watermelon salad was awesome and the scallops were excellent. Always end with the baclava is you've still got room.

Overall a good experience.

Went to this restaurant with business associates for dinner on the advise of a friend. It was fantastic. The interior is modern, hip and mostly white like the white washed homes found on the hills of Greece. The customer service and wait staff were superb. The food - was stellar. We decided to do a meal of appetizers and salads and share they looked so interesting. Do not be put off by the entree price of the grilled octopus appetizer. It was grilled/cooked to perfection which is not easy to do with octopus - it was tender and had a hint of the grill cooking flavor. The watermelon salad was just as good and presented beautifully. You can easily also have this salad as a light dessert if you choose. Go to this restaurant. Want to impress out of town guest? Go here - it is Ft. Lauderdale hip dining at it's best. They also have an outside eating area - I noticed ceiling air conditioning units so it is still a good option in the summer. Great customer service - on the way out - every employee we past said thank you for coming - have a nice evening.

If you are looking for authentic Greek fare then go to Greek Islands. Here you will not find your ususal menu items offered instead overpriced dishes that are so so. Olive tapenade on table sweet and bread just ok. Will not go back even though the service was very good.

Food excellent - Scallop dish with orzo delicious! Tomato salad best I've had since Greece. My husband loved the pastor so (I couldn't try it due to lent.
Prices - a little high, but the beautiful setting made up for it.
Service - Our only disappointment was service. With those prices, they should have a very good attentive staff. We had to ask our waiter to bring more bread multiple times (the 3-4 thin slices he brought initially obviously went quickly). Also i asked for
olive oil which arrived after most of the 2nd bread helping had been eaten. He forgot the lemon for our water and never brought one of the two appetizers we ordered. Most interesting was having our courses show up at the table in random fashion. Our salad and entrees arrived simultaneously and they just crowded everything onto the table. The poor family next to us had a big salad, big bowl of soup, and entrees all arrive at same time. We felt a bit rushed and our waiter seemed a bit over-whelmed.
That said, I liked the place very much a
and will definitely go back when we are in the area ... But next time we will force the pacing of the meal by waiting to order each course as we finish the previous one. Note: The restaurant is fairly new and they may still be breaking in staff, giving it the benefit of the doubt. Please by all means, go to this restaurant ... food and atmosphere fantastic! This is hopefully constructive feedback to restaurant ... We wish them much success!
