Food was very good. Music was mellow and low which made the noise level very low, so it was nice to be able to communicate with my date without screaming which I can’t stand.

They have the best cocktails I’ve had and they put an evil eye edible in your cocktail which is so cool. The service and ambiance was amazing. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend.

Food as usual - great. Greek Salad tomatoes were exceptional and Red Snapper was perfectly grilled and seasoned. Service was not good - no attention, had to call servers over every time we needed something - disappointed.

Had a late brunch of Eggs Florentine. The eggs were poached perfectly, the spinach sautéed just right, and the muffin was still crispy and soft. Well done!!!

Everything was great. We are outside so of course it was noisy as it's a busy street. The eggplant chips are outrageous and the greek salad dressing was the best I ever had.

We were the only ones at the restaurant at 11:30, so the first ones to place an order. But still had to wait 30 mins for 2 dishes: 2 omelettes. Sitting outside in the shade for 30 mins, it was chilly. As it is, you are on a street with lots of car traffic so the long wait was not pleasant.

So great first time dining here and would definitely dine again! Only complaint was the octopus app, it was overcooked and disappointing considered the sushi grade price but the other dishes (sea bass, lamb chops, and burger) were phenomenal! Baklava is also a must!

I felt comfortable that you follow covid-19 guidelines. Your opened windows provided the ventilation needed during these times. I understand your limited menu and hope that you will be able to resume your extensive dishes.

My mom and I wanted a delicious final meal before fasting for Yom Kippur and this meal did NOT disappoint. The food was delicious! We only ordered appetizers and they were great. We got the octopus, the shrimp saganaki, spinach pie, and the eggplant spread!

Always a pleasure to dine here - cocktails refressing / hummus excellent / grilled sea bass outstanding! The dividers for the tables were just not that secured - they need some weights at the foot of the table to keep them from falling to the customers.

Food was very good. Our table was right on the street , hence the ambience lower rating. But during this pandemic we were grateful to be out to dinner !
Service very good.

I have liked their food over the years and tolerate the mediocre and inconsistent service for that reason at this place.
This time, I asked to sit at the indoor table by the avenue (which was available) but was told it was “reserved”
They sat me at the outside seating which was fine by us but the way they stacked/placed tables SO CLOSE, With NO SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL, I could literally touch the other persons back wit my chair which made us highly uncomfortable to stay for dinner. We finished our drinks and left. By the way, the table inside was still available when we left!!! Very poor management and very average service. Will not return although I will miss their menu!

I was celebrating anniversary
Wasn’t happy with the table they gave us very bad location they had better tables available for such a special occasion . When I made the reservation I specified that I would be celebrating my anniversary, I guess they missed the note and had to reminded them but it was too late.
I was expecting a better experience since I spent $500 for dinner.
