“Wonderful Fresh Fish”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Four of us had dinner April 12, 2013. Service was very good--friendly, joyful, playful, and while prompt, not intrusive. Small dishes are fabulous. Main course Scorpio fish was delicious, and waitress recommendation to eat cheek meat was spot on--this was one of the best prepared and tastiest fish I've enjoyed. A little pricey, but well worth it. Will definitely return.

“Excellent mezethakia”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Seven of us from a nearby church came here for lunch on (American) Easter Sunday. The place was surprisingly non-crowded. Most of us made a meal out of shared "mezethakia" (appetizers). We started out with the dip assortment and stuffed grape leaves, which were accompanied by generous helpings of warm pita bread. All the dips were very tasty; the spicy cheese for once wasn't overwhelmingly spicy. We followed this up with spanakopita--spinach triangles served piping hot, grilled octopus, and stuffed portobello mushrooms. All were excellent. Only one person had a complaint: an elderly gentleman said his chicken and lemon soup was too salty. The waitress was very attentive and cheerful. We will definitely come back!

“A small Greek restaurant”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We arrived late in the evening and the restaurant was about half full. OUr waitress was very attentive and the appetizers arrived quickly but after waiting for 30 minutes for the main dish, we were ready to leave. Watching all the take-out orders carried out, we suspect the kitchen caters to the home diners. The food was okay, but certainly not worth the wait.

“A bit pricy, but great food!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Our first visit - what a busy place! But the service was good and the food better. We shared a Greek salad, then had chicken kebob and the sea bass for main course, with glasses of Syrah.

Nice touch - order 2 entrees and they bring some delicious Greek pastries for dessert.

We will, as the Terminator would say, "...be baaack!"

“Amazing food and you feel like family!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The entire experience at this restaurant was perfect. We ordered the beet salad and moussaka - I believe these are the house specialties and we know why now - they were excellent. We also ordered the organic baked chicken and this was the best chicken dish I have ever had! After the meal they brought dessert on the house - not just a tasting but a whole dessert dish. We will definitely go back! They have a nice bar area with an upscale feel - we didn't have time for drinks but it would be a nice place to stop for a drink.
