great brunch, really delicious. the atmosphere would be great if not for the other customers... totally obnoxious bitchy people. i went with a friend and we were very uncomfortable -- everyone kept staring at us and each other... looking you up and down and all that. also the service was not great.

The ambience, cute decor and deliciously comfortable seating really did outweigh the food. My biggest problem with this place was it never seemed to try very hard in terms of flavor, plating... anything else you'd expect from a relatively expensive establishment. My boyfriend ordered a $27 lambchop dish that was tiny, undercooked and with potatoes that tasted like the chef had boiled them, chopped them and that was it. I had a red snapper, which is supposed to be one of their best dishes, but it also lacked any kind of umph. It was resting on a heap of cooked veggies marginally flavored by some kind of broth. I got the feeling I could have cooked it myself, and trust me, I'm no chef. The plate of saganaki, which cost $12, came with four tiny slices of bread, and the cheese was surprisingly untasty. It was cheese! How do you suck the flavor out of cheese?? Karavas in the Village's saganaki was half the price, twice the size and ultimately, more delicious. Oh, and a bottle of Stella took 20 minutes to come. A bottle. The waitress said the bar was backed up, but jeez... is it that hard to pop a cap off? So yeah, Frank Bruni was somewhat right in his NYT review from a year ago... but for a high and mighty Times critic, he was waaaay too gentle on this place.

We just got back from Sunday brunch. The service was fine but food was subpar. A burger ordered medium rare came charred on the outside and absolutely raw in the middle. A chicken sandwich was burned so badly it was black. They didn't have pizzettes (pretty much the reason we came in the first place) or Steak and eggs.

I went early (6:30 ish) and it was empty except for a few people scattered about the place. Was seated immediately with no reservation. Service was great . I don't know if it was because there were few people there, but the waiter was amazing; very kind and very fast. (+++Note: As the meal went on people started to arrive and by 8 it was packed. ) Food arrived fast and it was good. Not amazing but def. good. Ambiance was great. Bill was pricey, but that's because alcohol was consumed (Beer was 6 a bottle). Overall a great experience and totally worth going to . I recommend.

I really loved this place. It is a hidden gem that you will walk past if you are not looking for it. I went with the family and everything that we ordered was delicious! The hummus trio, greek salad, crispy red snapper, lamb chops, and greek yougurt are to die for. Will most def return there soon!

I loved everything about this restaurant - great atmosphere, great food - though on the expensive side. I had the greek salad which was deliciousand very fresh, the sagnaki should not be missed and the lamb chops with potatoes were excellent. The chocolate brioce bread pudding was very good. Loved the feel of the place and music.

We are locals and have been regulars to their brunch ever since they opened. We're pretty picky eaters, but we've been returning every weekend for their dependable food. They make a good bloody mary and turkish coffee of course. Recently tried their pancakes and they knocked our socks off! I had the caramel sticky buns, mm-mm-yum just out of this world. The ambience is great and never too crowded for brunch--a real hidden gem! slightly pricey but worth it.
