Food was good. Not great, not terrible, but good. Service was extremely slow. Waited 40mins between ordering dessert and receiving it. The server was casually chatting with another table for about 10min straight as we tried to get their attention. After eating dessert and waiting another 20mins, had to go inside to get someone and ask for the check as no one was coming around.

Ambiance was nice but to be honest there are better Greek/Seafood spots in the area.

Took my partner here for his birthday. It was Easter and our reservation was in the evening. They were out of a few things because they were very busy during the day but everything we had was delicious - shrimp saganaki, salad and whole grilled branzinis. I love the addition of capers on the fish, adds a nice briny bite. Can’t wait to return.

The meal was delicious. I shared the grilled whole snapper with my husband. A nice salad. The restaurant has a nice outdoor dining setup. The inside is pretty. Very good service. My favorite restaurant in Astoria.

There was an entirely empty restaurant aside from my friend and I. The waitress attempted to seat a six top right next to us, not even two feet away, on the same bench. Completely disregarded Covid protocols for no reason whatsoever. Thankfully the family felt just as uncomfortable as we did and immediately asked to be moved somewhere else.

Staff was super accomadating and friendly. Service is fast and efficient. The food is delicious and worth it. I would recommend friends to eat here when they are in the area. I love that they have a indoor and outdoor dining option set up ready for customers. You can easily set up a reservation on open table in case the restaurant does get busy in the future so you can secure a spot.

Really good food and great service! Our waiter was so friendly and helpful. I requested a candle and dessert for my friend's birthday and they came through great. Also, for outdoor dining, they have really great heat lamps - I was not cold at all. Definitely recommend!

It used to be a place with a tasty good food. Not anymore. My greek salad had a ton of big cut tomatoes, olives were not pitted, almost broke my tooth. My guest ordered arugula beet salad, arugula was welted, missed dressing, very dried salad.

Delicious first experience at this authentic Mediterranean Style restaurant coping extremely well with having safe spacing outdoors and still achieving an ambience of relaxed dining. Will definitely be back . Hope they are considering outdoor heaters for the upcoming colder weather

Food was terrific and outdoor seating felt very comfortable. They have a very large outdoor space allowing for many tables. They were very understaffed and therefore could not be as attentive as desired. The staff did the best they could given the situation. However, the running and rushing of staff took away from what should be a relaxed atmosphere. There was an owner or manager walking around but never once did I see him tend to a table or help out his staff by taking care of any patrons. I have worked in several restaurants and would never want to work here. Despite the food and drinks being excellent our overall dining experience was only average.

Quality and Price is a great combination. Add the great service and nice atmosphere and you have a winning formula. Neighborhood restaurant with home cook charm. Nothing elaborate but the right amount of flavor. Went twice recently and plan on many more visits.

A great place for dinner. Many outdoor tables at a good social distance, interesting stuff on the menu, giant-size cocktails. A vast choice in Greek foods--you can get the pickled lemon potatoes everyone raves about as a side order. Lamb Kebab just $19. They let us bring a birthday cake. Probably the best Greek restaurant within walking distance (20 minutes) of the ferry stop, now newly expanded to stop on the Upper East Side. The others are significantly further away.

We have not been out for dinner since March 7th, so we were overdue. We invited 2 friends to join us and we were allowed to choose our outdoor table. The set up is very comfortable, the waiter was attentive, the food was delicious, the wine was only OK. A coworker had the same reaction that I did, the wine list was limited, overpriced, and the less expensive wine was only so so. The selection of food is outstanding and it was nice to be out of the house on a balmy Sunday afternoon.

The Prasini salad was well-dressed. The tzatziki, eggplant, and htipiti spreads were excellent. All four of us enjoyed the grilled calamari and the flavorful Pasta Greca. The swordfish was cooked well and surrounded with vegetables. We left satisfied. There were no complaints all around and I can’t wait to go back
