After hearing good things about the restaurant, iwe found it very disappointing. Service was lackadaisical; they were out of many items. They seemed to be peeved we were there. The food was on par with a Greek restaurant in a shopping mall but at many times the cost. Putting lemon juice on everything doesn’t make it Greek food. Much too expensive for what we got.

Small unappetizing salad, not enough ingredients,
Entree small, still hungry
Food temperature too cold. Then reheated and served while others at table were finishing eating.
Server cleared dishes just as I was beginning reheated meal making me feel rushed
Birthday cake desert was served while I was eating
Again very rushed

AWFUL! We were ignored by wait staff. Others who were seated after us were attended to before us. When we called someone over he said he wasn't a waiter even as he was bringing out food and clearing tables and couldn't take our drink or dinner order so we waited a bit longer. A waitress finally came to take our order. It was getting late and we lost our desire for a glass of wine and ordered our dinner. We waited for over 40 minutes for our dinners to arrive. We had allowed ample time for a leisurely dinner pre-theater and now had to eat quickly with no time (or desire at this point) for coffee. My chicken kabob was dry and the rice cold. We had to ask for bread and a basket with pita was thrown down by a passing waitress. Food was terrible and service even worse. This was our first and last visit to this restaurant.

The restaurant is a good all around Greek restaurant. Some of the dishes were good while others were not. Lamb was a bit tough and over cooked for what we ordered. The vegetables were also over cooked. Salad and octopus were good. Service was friendly and attentive. Probably makes for a great lunch restaurant.

this seems to be a local hot spot for the over 75 crowd. The food was fine but I felt like I was eating in dining room of a retirement home. I felt sorry for the hardworking staff who had to deal with a crowd of hard to please people. We couldn't enjoy the food

Large portions and great value. The food is excellent and plentiful. We really enjoyed the olives and feta. Also the mousska, both veggie and meat, was fantastic. Hearty Greek comfort food!

Delicious Greek food in a fun ambiance.. the lemon soup was tasty.. lamb chops were perfectly cooked and accompanied by yummy potatoes and green beans.
The dessert was a crunchy phyllo filled with a creamy filling . Thank you to our waiter who gave us great service..
Loved this restaurant and would return..

Food had to be returned. It was inedible. They also mentioned when we told them this was an open table reservation that they had no idea what we were talking about. Hopefully we will get our points for going to that restaurant.

Excellent food, the octopus was very tasty, hummus and gyros were generous portions. We will be back!
