I don't mind spending $100 a person for food and I'm know I'm paying for Manhattan atmosphere. The portions could have been somewhat larger. I left the restaurant hungry within 30 minutes.

The cuisine is exceptional and the owner, Maria Loi, goes out of her way to insure that every guest is treated beautifully. As I have a number of dietary restrictions, Maria and the kitchen painstakingly create delicious menus for me and those that are dining directly off the menu. The food is fresh and superior. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

An amazing restaurant in midtown west that elevates Greek food to amazing heights. Greek food is delicious to start with and Chef Maria Loi takes it to the next level. The Asyrtiko white grape from Santorini makes an amazing white wine. My favorite dishes are the Octopus and the Lamb Shank. Highly recommended.

Osobuco soup was very good. My entrée (shrimp with pasta) was poor: not much flavor and pasta was very overcooked and mushy. They were out of the first two desserts we ordered. Then, rather than bringing me the dessert I ordered, they split it into four mini-servings for the table. Service was lackluster although restaurant was not crowded. It was hard to get waiter's attention. Waiter poured fresh wine into a used beer glass instead of bringing new glass. Given the upscale prices here, food and service were very disappointing.

The food here is very good, perhaps not Milos but then not $125 for a lobster salad either. The Greek salad would be better with heirloom tomatoes, but the octopus and in particular the tiger shrimp (huge, practically lobster tails) were outstanding. Desert, a typical Greek walnut/pistachio/honey concoction was very good, and the pre-dessert of home-made yoghurt was outstanding. Definitely a worthwhile place.

A warm and welcoming place for excellent Greek food, not masquerading as anything else. Comfortable and attractive interior matched by attentive service and lovely touches such as the delicious homemade corn bread and pita served to the table and the outstanding little dish of homemade greek yogurt served at the end. If you love a wonderfully comforting bowl of bean soup, a classic moussaka, or a great grilled octopus, you will not be disappointed.
