First thing you notice when you enter is the service quality. Everyone is working. They are fast and good. Then you notice the nice smell of a good restaurant.

Food was great. Try the Shrimp Campechana. Nice flavor blend of Grilled Shrimp and Sweets.

Only thing that can be better is ambience. And I don't mean that it's not good, but the great food and service you get don't relate to the mix of cafeteria - restaurant look you walk into.

We went early (7pm) on a Saturday. Slow but it filled up. The thin pita chips are good and the dipping sauce is tasty but I would have liked it better if the herbs were not dried. I just mixed it up with the oil and it worked for me. We had fried calamari as an appetizer. It was greasy and a bit chewy. The cooked "Mediterranean salsa" with black olives and capers saved it. We split a mango stuffed chicken entree. It was plenty for 2 and very rich. The grilled veggies were, well, grilled veggies. The mango butter sauce was overkill rich and I just don't get escalloped potatoes on this plate. More butter and cream. The chicken was delicious. The wine special was cheap and tasty enough. I liked the idea of the entree so much that I am going to remake it at home and lighten it up. We would go here again because the menu is so interesting. It was friendly and the service was alright.

Service was superb. As soon as we were seated, a plate of thin, fried chips (pita of some sort?) with za'atar and olive oil were set in front of us. Original and very tasty. The spinach dip was excellent. A salsa and sour cream were served with it, and, while unexpected, it worked really well. Then came the entrées--best grilled tuna ever! Blackened shrimp pasta was very good, and the lamb chops were yummy, as well. A most excellent experience.
