Historically, one of my favorite Greek spots. My recent visit made me question whether it had changed ownership or was going out of business. Apparently they let their liquor license lapse, so the beautiful bar was completely empty and was being used as a spot to dry water glasses. The stunning seafood display on ice was gone and used for storage of miscellaneous items. Usually on the weekends, there had been a lovely greek singer and piano player. That was gone. The food was still good and staff was friendly, but it was slightly depressing that the location looked in disarray. I probably won’t return.

Poor experience. Overpriced. Wait staff unknowledgeable and very inattentive and slow, despite a more or less empty restaurant of diners. Food came out wrong.

Fell upon this restaurant last minute on a Saturday night. When people in the area catch on - WOW - you won’t get a table here!! Everything was fresh, delicious tasting with authentic Greek spices. There was not one dish our party of 4 didn’t like - definitely a top 10 for my party and we will sure revisit many times.

A very pretty outside dining area, excellent service from our waiter George, and the food was not completely typical Greek food (nothing wrong with that anyway).

First water very rude, second waiter excellent.

Cold french fries, fish not so impressive.

Kitchen needs to be more attentive to the details.

I might not go back.

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.

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.

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.
