    Great Brunch

    The food for brunch was really great! When you get bread at the beginning it comes with butter and figs, it is amazing! I had the Greek toast which was really good, accept a little soggy. Over all I think it is definetly worth it.

    Great meal

    Be forewarned - lunchtime at this place is PACKED! Definitely try the Kolokithi - thin deep fried eggplant and zucchini chips with a creamy yogurt dipping sauce - they're addictive! The spanakopita is also good, I liked that the layer of filo was very thin and it was overstuffed with spinach, which I prefer. I had the Arctic Char as my entree, which is similar to salmon in texture, but milder, and it came with braised wild greens, which were a bit bitter. I would have preferred grilled vegetables or another side instead. For desert, I had the baklava. The filo was nothing like the aforementioned spinach pie, instead, it was very hard and flaky and difficult to cut. It was still tasty, and was served with a scoop of ice cream, a presentation which I've never had before, the two complemented each other very well (but then again, what dessert DOESN'T taste great with a scoop of ice cream?) Overall, the food was good, although it is pretty pricey.

    Could go either way...

    The food we had here was quite good, but the service was lousy. We were paid very little attention to, and felt very rushed during the entire meal. The staff waited like vultures until we got up to leave (and please trust me, we weren't lingering). It just felt like they wanted to throw food (albeit delicious) in front of you, take your money, and turn the table...and all this on a Tuesday night.

    Go Elsewhere

    Service was very bad, we had to ask for water, etc several times before receiving it. Waiter never checked on us after food came. The food itself was not good. My lunch tasted, well "odd", and left a poor taste in my mouth all day that no amount of gum could get rid of. stay away The decor is something your grandmother might enjoy

    Simply Delicious

    Great food, atmosphere & service. My husband said it was one of the best meals he has had in many years. We can't wait to go back again!

    Place is consistently good

    I have been here several times over the last few months and the meals are always excellent. The place has a nice atmosphere, its always busy, and the service is very good. For appetizers, the octopus is delicious. The shrimp cocktail is great with large jumbo shrimp. My personal favorite is the wild salmon in the grape leaf. I also have shared a whole fish which was also very yummy. If you are looking for greek food, you should def try this place!

    Disappointed

    What a disappointment. Service has definitely declined. Food and atmosphere are still good, but at these prices it's frustrating to have to continually chase after waiters and servers for such basics as water, bread, and taking your order. "Indifferent" and "bored" are two words I would use to describe the attitude. All four of us were surprised that the manager didn't even have the grace to comp SOMETHING at the end, though he knew we'd been upset by the service.
