It was our first time there. We had a short wait, unexpected for a Thurs. We were seated in the back near the kitchen, because they where hosting some type of buffet dinner for a larger group. Our server messed up on our orders and mixed up the sides between two of the 3 meals that where ordered. Slow on... More

We went for 1200 service.Were seated right away(had reservation).Wait staff were very attentive immediately and thruout.Buffet was well setup,with large selections of lunch and breakfast items.There was a carving station with prime rib,lamb,and ham. You're always in a crowd on this day,but they managed very well and we never felt crowded.This was our first visit,we were really pleased.

Yes, it was a bit pricey, but I was prepared for that. The seabass was served atop vegetables. I will be going again. I wanted a place that was quiet and private to catch up... More

I love the decor in there. We ordered wine and saganaki to start. Then he had soup and I had salad. He says his soup was very fresh and bright tasting. My salad was delicious topped with the house dressing. Entrees were also delicious. We didn't have dessert because we were so full. The prices were reasonable.

Been here a couple times. This is a great place for ambiance whether a romantic meal or a business meeting. Service is good. There is a solid menu with a good variety of options and also a nice pricing range. The person hosting must know the chef as he brought us a great appetizer on the house with scallops, mushrooms,...
