This place gives Greeks a bad name, our first clue to stay away should've been when we called several times and no answer, but we thought they were that good and must be busy, so we decided to just go there and try it plus they have live entertainment on Saturday night. First we get there and the only parking... More

This place has it all ; delicious food, great service, awesome location and wonderful atmosphere! We loved the open , cool feel of the indoor dining space too . The Coconut Shrimp appetizer was a terrific starter. I enjoyed the Cleopatra Salad while my husband had some tasty ribs. All servers were cheerful --amazing considering the capacity holiday crowd.

If you enjoy good fresh Greek food you have to try this. The pita and hummus is fresh and delicious.

Its not worth the money. Their food all tastes the same, just seems nothing we tried was very good. You didn't get a very big portion either.

The best Greek style breakfast. The restaurant was clean and staff very friendly. The food was great. We went for breakfast, but the restaurant opens for dinner as well and has a very stacked bar. Again, the food was amazing.

We walked up to the restaurant and weren't sure because it looked a bit 'touristy' for our tastes. I'm glad that we stayed! We chose an outdoor table on the sidewalk where there was a nice breeze. Our server Phillip was attentive and made allowances for our indecision. The Saganaki was done properly with Phillip flaming it at our table.... More
