    Barbara was great!!! During the time of making my reservation through opentable.com, I mentioned that we are celebrating my nephew's return from Iraq, completion of his duty in the army and his birthday all in one shot. That is the reason for our dinner. At the end of our meal, the waiter came out with a huge platter of dessert with a candle and placed it in front of Kevin. He was soooo happy and pleasantly surprised! I was very happy that he was happy. This made our dining and most of all Kevin's dining experience so memorable.

    We have been coming to this restaurant since moving to Fair Lawn, that was in 1985. It wasn't always this fine restaurant but when it was last redone it became one of our favorite places. We walk to it since we live on Northern Drive. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversary, Mother's Dya, Father's Day and just enjoyed a meal with friends and family, no occasion necessary. The owner, manager and the entire staff is attentive and accommodating. The food is always fresh and consistently meets our expectations. This is one of the restaurants I can recommend with confidence.

    Dined on 6/7/2008
    Excellent food. My wife and son had complete lobsters which were served quickly (other restaurants take a long time to catch the lobsters roaming the kitchen). Broiled fish special was excellent but the rice was too spicy. Our booth was too tight to sit comfortably (at the end near the bar). Next time we will ask for a table near the windows. We celebrated my wife's 50th birthday, and our ten year son enjoyed his whole lobster. Overall, dinner was excellent, with excellent service and excellent food. Salad and deserts were also excellent. Only negative was the tight fit between our expanding waistlines and the table; our booth should be used by skinny people only.

    Excellent food and service. Noise level was obnoxious, owing to close spacing of tables and volume of tables in the room. Noise level was probably also due to character of diners! I would return because of the food. We purchased an expensive wine which was excellent.

    Bread lacked salt, olive oil lacked depth, tasted like cooking oil...fagris special was excellent, scampi preparation of soft shells not memorable but crab was fresh, spreads appetizer overwhelmed by garlic, did not taste any feta, only roquefort in cheese spread, no greek coffee available. Rice side dish was undistinguished..sticky ball of rice underseasoned and pasty. Very, very expensive (especially the appetizers) and did not live up to expectation. Wanted to like it after Record article and being Greek myself but prices did not justify the overall food experience. Was expecting something like Varka in Ramsey and though the fish was better at Oceanos, but the sides, appetizers are more memorable at Varka. Lovely room-booths small

    The food and service was excellent. When I originally made the reservation I requested a romantic table for my husband's birthday. We had a booth, that would normally seat four, by the window and it was just perfect. At the end of the night the server brought over a desset with a candle on it and wished my husband a happy birthday! That was such a nice touch. We were very impressed. Thank you.

    We received a seafood appetizer with a metal electrical piece in the food. We did not create a scene but told the waiter what we had almost eaten and we were told the appetizer would be taken care of and that someone would be coming to the table. But the manager never arrived at our table to apologize or even to make sure that no one had bitten into it. At the end of the meal we were given a free dessert that did not cost nearly as much as the appetizer (nearly $40), and we were still charged full price for it. Will think twice about returning to this restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/3/2008
    The food presentation and quality was excellent. Our waiter was very good, but he seemed to have too many tables to attend to, and the service suffered just slightly because of it. We were not entirely comfortable with the bench seating that resulted in a lack of privacy. We were told by another patron that this was the "two-sies" section. I would prefer to have tables for 2 mixed in with the general population. We were puzzled that the matre d' twice tried to seat couples right next to us on the bench while there was still open tables on either end- both couples refused the initial offering. HINT- people LIKE privacy! This could be a top restaurant with a little tweaking!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/26/2008
    Food was excellent. Day boat Scallops were cooked perfect, but a smidge to much pepper. Regardless, it was delicious. From the rest of my group, soft shell crab was very good but the scampi style was lacking garlic. Chilean Sea Bass was delicious as well, but one person still had the skin on from the fish. It would probably be beneficial to remove it as it is very tough. Risotto served with the Chilean Sea Bass was lacking flavor and was undercooked. I would recommend pairing it with a light rice pilaf or to stick with the Mediterranean flair, a simple lemony rice. The Surf & Turf was the best my husband has ever had. It was delicious, as the filet mignon melted in your mouth. Kudos to the chef. we will definitely be back.

They have a great idea for handling your "doggie bags", you are given a ticket and you can either ask your waiter to get your bag or you can pick it up at the door. Great idea! had Hadock the evening special and it was delicious. My friend had the Day Scallops and they were fresh and delightful a real gem. I would go back again and look forward to some delicious fresh fish and yummy entrees.
