    Ok but could be better

    The place is charming and well designed. The service was without fault. I ordered the melitsanosalata (eggplant spread) and it was so-so, a sort of mush. I've had some you couldn't stop eating.This I had to plow through., Next came the grilled lamb shops. No salt, so they were tasteless, but with salt were better. but they were rather tough and filled with gristle. I've had better,both in Chicago and in Delphi, Greece. The dessert was fine, the free after dinner drink was great, and all of it, with wine, set me back over $100 for one person. Perhaps the moussaka would have been a better choice. I will say the fresh grilled fish looked pretty good. I think that might be thier speciality.

    Great place for fresh fish

    This charming and friendly Greek style taverna has wonderful fresh fish. We had grilled branzino (filleted by the waiter at tableside), grilled shrimp and fried smelt-- all of which were delicious. The tzatziki was fabulous, and their feta cheese on a salad remarkably mellow and sharp at the same time. The service was impeccable—attentive, friendly and helpful. We’ve added this place to our list of the terrific NYC restaurants we’ll visit often.

    Mediocre food, poor value

    The Taramosalata and Spanakopita were decent and the oregano fries and Revani were not good... but the shrimp cocktail consisting of 3 small jumbo shrimp for $16 was at least twice the going rate and discouraged me from exploring further.

    Great Greek seafood

    Fresh ingredients and dishes. Grilled fish & octopus were tender and flavorful and not over cooked. I love when they debone the fish right in front of you. Staff are friendly and courteous.

    Consistent quality & excellence

    My wife and I talk about going into the restaurant every time we order for delivery but we never get a chance. It would be nice to finally meet the people who are always so kind and professional over the phone. The delivery personnel are polite and courteous. The food is always amazingly fresh and tasty. You can not go wrong with any of the dishes on this menu. Have a question about the authentic cuisine and the staff gives accurate descriptions of the dishes and if requested will politely steer you towards something delicious every time. I hope this restaurant stays around for a long time.

    Amazing again!

    This is the third time my husband and I have been here and we can't get enough! The first time, we came alone to celebrate my husband's birthday. Then in June, for our second visit, we brought friends of ours who live up the block, but had never dined there. Now, last night, we took my husband's parents as an anniversary dinner, and they adored it! We seem to always get the same waiter (Kostos), which is great because he is super helpful. Any lamb dish is out of this world, and the moussaka was amazing! We have no complaints and we can't wait to return to bring my parents for their anniversary!
