SInce this place advertises as a mediterranean restaurant I was expecting more greek choices like stuffed grapes leaves or something with eggplant. I ordered the Chicken Souvlaki and it was very good. It came with a greek salad, a yogurt dressing/dip, and pita bread. My...More

Our server was the friendliest, quickest server I've ever met. I can't remember her name but she was making sure everything was perfect throughout. The pasta was pretty good & the drinks were strong!

Good bistro feel. The menu has a lot of gourmet variety style food. We tried few different items from the menu: pizza, salad and a sandwich all were good.
