Fantastic Greek food - very flavorful and fresh. Small, intimate restaurant in a great location. Only issue we had was they were out of deserts when we visited - hopefully we'll get that next time as we will go back.

We stopped in for an early dinner and started with Dolmathes (stuffed grape leaves) and Eggplant Puree appetizers. Both were very good and the pita bread was nicely warmed when served. Our dinners were served with Greek style side salads, which were perfectly prepared... not too much dressing and a flavorful combination of veggies, cheese and herbs. Each of us ordered a lamb entree: marinated "Lamb Pita," "Lamb Souvlakia Dinner," and a "Roasted Lamb Special."

The roasted (well-done) lamb was tender and nicely flavored, sliced thin, but certainly not very moist. It tasted and looked braised, but it was not served with any discernable pan drippings. Unfortunately, the lamb souvlakia entrees were extremely tough and even hard to slice with the dull steak knives we were given. I ordered my lamb, which came skewered in large cubes, medium rare. It was served medium and had a nice open flame grill and marinade basting aroma, but the leg cut was extremely tough to slice and chew. Part of the problem was that the lamb had not been marinated long enough to tenderize it, but it also could have used some mechanical tenderizing to make it chewable. Those factors and the tendency of Greek restaurants to over-cook lamb in general made the experience less than satisfying. (Young lamb is very lean and is often tough when prepared beyond the point of medium rare. You have to marinate it at least 24 to 48 hours if it is not to be slow-roasted.) There are several other items on the menu that I would like to try, but sadly lamb dishes will not be on my list.

I was extremely underwhelmed. The service was extremely lackluster took a long time to get our food and I thought it was expensive for the portions and quality. To be more specific, the spanakopita I was try and serve cold, and we were not even asked about dessert
My husbands dinner of grilled lamb and rice was $25 and truly not worth it at that price point we wont go back

Was disappointed. Saturday at 11:45 a.m., no coffee. No roasted lamb and the "regular" lamb in pita was grisly. Other dishes were okay, though they were out of at least one other thing that we tried to order. I can understand not having items at various times of the day, but that should be announced, rather than waiting for us to choose them on the menu.

Although this place is small and seems more like a deli than a full restaurant on first glance, the food was amazing. We were waited on by the owner who was very friendly and knowledgeable about his greek food. I also had the absolute best baklava ever! I was with fiercer who has recently travelled to Greece who also thought the baklava could not be better! Overall, It was a most enjoyable experience. I plan to try everything on the menu!
