    extremely rude management and tasteless food

    I grew up with a dad in the restaurant business and I have worked in restaurants myself.  I very politely and discreetly approached the manager and explained that I was bothered by the $6 change in price for the appetizer. He was immediately rude, unfriendly and defensive.  He sad that they serve 2000 plates and can't change the dishes.  I said that first of all that was not on the menu, second of all, the waiter didn't tell us in advance and gave NO indication that it was even an issue, and third of all, arugula doesn't cost $6 more than peppers. He continued to be defensive, hostile and rude. All the time I kept my cool and was reasonable.  He finally admitted that the waiter made a mistake and he was going to talk to him. He didn't say sorry, he didn't apologize,  he didn't do what any other decent restaurant professional would do and offer us a coffee or glass of wine (we didn't have time and weren't looking for that but that's what you do as a restaurant manager when your customer is unhappy bc of a mistake you made). I didn't want the waiter yelled at! I am sure it wasn't his fault.This manager or owner was incredibly rude and unprofessional.  It is that, and not the mediocre food and jacked up price,  that made me write my first ever review on a web site.

    Great Greek

    Ordered delivery for my family 4 times so far. Only once I thought the food was just so so because I order the wrong thing. Some foods don't travel we'll for delivery and I had to learn what not to get. The other three times we had excellent meals. We always got our order within 30 minutes. Glad these guys are in the neighborhood.

    Greek Is The Word Is The Word

    Is not fair to judge food from delivery. Food right out of the kitchen is always better and it's easier to get the kitchen to prepare your meal as you like it. Keeping this in mind my wife and I had a great meal from here. It was Saturday night we could hear they were busy yet the food got here in a timely fashion , 40 mins.and considering it was A big order and everything was prepared fresh. The food was absolutely delicious . Really not too expensive considering the quality of ingredients and preparation. I hope they don't mess with things as new restaurants sometimes do. I live in the neighborhood and plan to make this place a weekly stop.

    Amazing food and service

    We fortunately ignored the reviews and tried this restaurant for ourselves. The food was very fresh and delicious. The service was a good compliment to excellent food. We will definitely come back!

    Don't do delivery

    The food is good and the service in the restaurant acceptable. The delivery time --- 1.5 to 2.0 hours, without an acknowledgment, much less an apology --- is anything but acceptable.
