Emilitsa met all of our expectations. The service and food was outstanding. The server guided us on wine choice, since we've little knowledge of Greek wines. The menu, especially the appetizers were so interesting, we ended up ordering 3 appetizers and shared a main course. The grilled octopus was amazing - so tender. Our main course, the moussaka was fantastic. Ended the meal with the rice pudding, which was delicious as well. Looking forward to going back. More

I hadn't been to Fore Street for a while and wondered if the experience would still be as good as I remembered. I was not disappointed. The food is still spectacular. The rope harvested mussels are so big and meaty, and they had a marinated squid appetizer that was outstanding. My date had a scallop dish with red grits that was wonderful. The waiter was very good, except that he could have been more familiar with the menu. While the menu changes daily, I expect the server at a high end restaurant to know everything about it. Still, it was a great experience and I look forward to going back again. More

This was my first visit to Little Giant. The menu is pretty simple, but the dishes are all elevated in their preparation. Our group tried fried oyster tacos for an appetizer; they were great. Grilled octopus was also delicious, and a very good size serving. The room is cold, and the service was a bit slow, but not too bad. Overall, a great neighborhood restaurant. More

Seating was prompt, service was attentive, kitchen was flexible (like when we asked for a mix of charcuterie and cheese), wine list had SoPo Wines, and we made it to the concert next door right on time! Decent steak, beans (? we get these at home), and my small side salad didn't appear. Love the energetic atmosphere. More

Went to lunch before a Christmas concert. Was greeted by a very friendly staff and was shown to our table right away. The wait staff was very good and gave the right amount of service without being over done. We both had the clam chowder which was very good (highly recommend it!). The entrees (Lobster Sliders & Cobb Salad ) were good. Great place for lunch & more. More
