Great place, great food, came to celebrate my wife's birthday and we got a free champagne bottle. The black meditarían sea bass was the best. My wife had shrimps the size of lobsters.

The calamari were tough and the saganaki wasn't melted or flamed. It was cold and the cheese was hard. The rest of the food was average. The service was good, but the food needed considerable attention from a chef.

Ate at bar during happy hour when appetizers are on special. Main menu was actually a little thin on options, so stuck with several small plates like grilled octopus, salad and chicken skewers which were all very good. If coming with a group, I'd suggest...More
