My daughter and I have eaten here two times in the past few months. We were able to get one of our meals free, using the Erie Fine Dining Card. Because we loved our meals so much the first visit (I had Shrimp and Lump Crab a la Pesto and my daughter had Chicken Mediterranean), we ordered it again on our second visit. A pita-type bread with oil and spices were served first, followed by soup (every one delicious) - these were included in the meal price. Because we chose to order an additional appetizer (yummy, too), we were just about full by the time our main course arrived, so we had plenty to take home for lunch the next day. The restaurant itself is quite small, but we had no problem getting reservations at the last minute and on our second visit were able to eat outside on their tiny patio. A thoroughly enjoyable experience - we will definitely eat there again, and again.

ordered fattoush and brought out a salad. Whiskey sour had no sour mix in it! gyro had a pita that was stale, hummus was bitter. Megdraa was made in a very rich sauce! 43.00 and wasn't worth a penny! very disappointed!

I was traveling for work to Erie and enjoyed dinner alone here one evening. Wonderful atmosphere - would be a fantastic place for a date! The staff were very knowledgable and accommodating. I had the Mediterranean sampler and everything was delicious!

everything went wrong from the first time we walked in the door. "The owner did not have a clue what was going on. We placed our order and there were 8 of us and we all got our order one at a time which took forever. this place could kick BUTT if the owner and his wife would step up get their act together. When we left, I didn't have any problem telling oncoming customers that , "YOU WILL BE SORRY."

With so many chain restaurants available to Erie, this is a wonderful place to go for something you might find in the bigger cities. So many choices that you can't find on a standard menu. Small restaurant, but service and atmosphere are very enjoyable.
