Delicious, authentic Greek food. Tzaziki was flavorful and a generous portion. Restaurant was busy but service was very accommodating. All plates arrived hot and food was very fresh. A great dining choice in the area.

This was our 3rd visit to this restaurant and our 2nd experience with Shelby, our server, who is terrific! The zucchini chip appetizer is delicious as is the hummus. Try any lamb dish and you will not be disappointed!

I was travelling for business and needed dinner for one. The regulars at the bar welcomed me and I had calamari and swordfish. They were prepared perfectly. Highly recommended!
