    Waited 30 minutes for waiter to take our order. Never refilled drinks or checked on us. We wanted to order desert but thought it would take qn hour. The restaurant was not busy and there were a lot of wait staff. Ours was just absent. Gyro dinner was very good.

    We went for New Year’s Eve. It was our first time there and it was wonderful. The food was fantastic and the staff were great. 2 downsides: one person was there celebrating her birthday and there was a lot of “wooing” and loud yelling due to probably many drinks and second, you don’t get much baklava for the price. Super tiny and not that great-my grandmother’s recipe is much better. But again, the staff were friendly and attentive but not overbearing. We will definitely be going back.

    I happened to make reservations on a Saturday night, when they had a belly dancer on stage. I enjoyed a delicious meal while a vivacious and talented dancer entertained the restaurant patrons. Dinner and a show! The server was friendly and attentive and the cocktails were tasty. Highly recommended!

    You can tell immediately when you walk in that this place is stuck in the past. The booth sank down so far and was so uncomfortable, the floor was dirty, everything looked like it hadn’t been cleaned, all waters had to be sent back because they had floaters (order it without ice apparently), 2 of the entrees came out 15 minutes later than everyone else’s because they “ran out of pans”, and the food was very oily and subpar. The saving grace is the happy hour and the belly dancer. Overall would not recommend.

    Our server was excellent! Very attentive but not overbearing. We had a reservation but were initially seated at an uncomfortable table where one of us would be in a traffic aisle. We were moved to a different table promptly. Another couple came in right after us and seated at our original table and even though they stayed you could see they didnt like it either. We had the flaming strip steak; it was done medium as we requested and served with rice and lots of veggies. It was flavorful but not very tender. Also had the spanakopita; it was undercooked so a little unappetizing. Would we go back? Not sure. That’s our honest review; a mixed experience. Prices are reasonable for both food and drinks but the food could be better.

    We booked for lunch on Father’s Day, Our reservation was for 1pm and we arrived a little earlier as well. It took a half hour for us to receive the saganaki we ordered as an appetizer when we placed our full order. By 2pm our entrees had yet not arrived and yet we could see others who arrived after us get food. We thought maybe food came out in batches but then we noticed a party that arrived much later than us had been served a similar entree to one we ordered. My husband was hangry by this time so we left. I will say that when we went to pay the manager was nice and waived the bill and did apologize but it was super awkward and strange.

    During belly dancing, noise level is high but probably less than you might expect. The food is awesome (unless you like garlic... if you like garlic and remember to ask for garlic sauce it's legendary).

    My sister and I had a wonderful evening at Ansari’s Mediterranean Grill. The live performance and attentive wait staff made us feel like we were transported to a resort style lounge. I recommend this place for a fun but be-home-by-midnight kind of night for anyone looking to eat good food and have a good time.
