From there you will be served your meals at the table by one of our staff, they'll refill your drinks accordingly, provide you with your wine glasses and/or frosted beer mugs. There are no fees for bringing your own wine or beer to drink. You may order additional items from any one of our staff working the floor or you are welcome to return to the POS at your leisure to order anything else you would like. Your visit can be as "formal" or "informal" as you would like it to be.

My Hubby's family is from Crete & he couldn't get enough of this place! The tzaziki was amazing as well as the awesome pita bread, chicken gyro w. Fries & salads... we shared a slice of heaven with the baklava cheesecake. This is the kind of place where I suspect everything on the menu rocks. Order the saganaki for a special treat. Layout is a little weird but it works.. u order 1st & pay then you take a seat & your "server" brings u your food. Service was good. We came in right b4 it got really busy. Highly recommend!

I happened to be in the area at lunch time and I don't get Greek close to home so I searched for a local restaurant and found this gem. I got a traditional gyro and it was very tasty. The food was warm and veggies fresh. The atmosphere is very casual and comfortable. Would come here again!

When it first opened, I was curious to check it out. The outside round, small lights lining the seating areas look beautiful as you mingle and have fun with your close ones. Although it's not a large place in regards to seating, it offers various seating options: inside, where you have a choice of booth or table; around the entrance/hallway, where you have the high seats and a nice view of the outside; and outside seating when weather permits. The place is immaculately clean and the people who work there are super friendly. Sometimes the lines are too long, but if you are not in a hurry, it's worth it! The desserts are delicious, and the food was great.

Friends visiting from Delaware craving Greek food knew exactly where to go after searching tripadvisor and introduced us to a local favorite in a neighboring town we didn't know was there. Not too familiar with Greek food, our friends helped us along the way. We brought our own wine which was welcomed by the cafe. There wasn't formal table service with waiters and waitresses but the staff was very attentive to our table and others around us.
The food was very tasty and fresh. Our side salads were impressive. Just the right amount of feta cheese, a great blend of spring mix including baby spinach. I passed on the hot peppers but the creamy feta dressing was delightful. Char grilled lamb kabobs were excellent. The taste of summer grilling was all over them.

Meatballs smothered in a feta cheese and dill sauce was excellent too. Finished with a piece of chocolate baklava cheesecake that was unlike any other cheesecake I've had before.

Great friends, great food and excellent wine made for a fun night. We'll be returning soon with more friends and can't wait until it warms up, the outdoor seating is very attractive.

Not many greek restaurants around and Hellenic Kouzina does not disappoint. Very good Pastitsio and the greek side salad with the feta dressing is excellent. The coffee is very good along with the almond cookies. If you have a craving for greek food this is your best bet.
