Went with a group for eats before heading to Rosa's Lounge. Spouse's birthday. Seated promptly. Service helpful, solid recommendations on the wine, food portions. Accommodated the gluten-/soy intolerant in our group fairly well. Hummus average. Pita also (doesn't appear to be made here). Eggplant nicely...More

Enjoyed the variety offered by a whole series of small plates! Loved the food. Reminded me of what we ate while traveling in Turkey! The flavors were incredible and everything was cooked to perfection! Thank you for an amazing meal!

The turlú without feta is fully vegan and fully amazing. To round out the meal, the kolokithokéftedes (squash fritters) and the agináres me koukia (Politiki-style vegetables) are also vegan. But I would go back just for the turlú any day.

I did not think anything was over-priced and the portion sizes were fine, particularly the roasted chicken which was delicious. The beet salad is also tasty and different. Our server had a great wine recommendation.
