Nice enough, friendly enough, clean. We felt the price for some of our dishes was a little high for portion size and the neighborhood.

I realize this place is new, but we are Greek food fans and we live in the neighborhood. The service was VERY slow and cumbersome. If it were busy, I could almost understand but it was virtually empty! I was surprised! Very few waitstaff running around crazy in a virtually empty restaurant. It was strange.

This was one of the most fabulous beautiful experiences we ever had. The food was extremely unique and all natural. The service was outstanding and the chef came out and met us. What a wonderful special expert in his field. Love this restaurant it will be our new favorite and we know what favorites are!

Restaurant is fairly new. Very not very decor and intimate. Panos was our server and he was awesome. Made the night extreme enjoyable! The black truffle Tarama is a must. Fried calamari was good as well. Actually, everything we ate was good. The stand out was the tarama. Never had it hat way before. Only criticism I can make is, a few more wines can be added to the list. Doesn’t need to be a large list but a few more wouldn’t hurt. I’ll be back though! Overall great dinner!

It was just okay. There’s better seafood at Kyclades.

The grilled octopus w/ black eyed peas was the best octopus I've ever had! Tarams is served with caviar and it is excellent. We had a white wine from Santorini , very good also tiger shrimp w/ red quinoa! Dessert was an orange cake that was amazing! Don't hesitate to eat here. It is a cut above most Greek restaurants!

Akrotiri is definitely a modern take on Greek cuisine. The presentation is simple and elegant, and some twists on classic dishes. My husband and i shared 3 appetizers and 1 main at the suggestion of the server. It was definitely more than we needed. Everything is great for sharing. Save room for their creative desserts. You really can't go wrong with their suggestions. The bill with one glass of wine each came out to $100 or so excluding tip. It does get busier after 7 pm. The ambiance is soothing and it makes you wish you were seaside in Greece.

From the waiter to the excellent chef, everyone was friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the food and wine. Beautiful atmosphere. Fantastic Greek wines. All the food excellent with interesting ingredients. The special paste with mushrooms was fantastic as was the smoked eggplant appetizer. The orange cake was other worldly fantastic. Loved the Melanthia sparkling rose wine - like walking through a rose garden. Select menu, hopefully they’ll have extra daily specials in the future as well. Portion sizes could be slightly larger, although the seafood with squid ink linguini was right amount.

We were there for a Anniversary night. Our waiter was accommodating but was serving too many tables at the time we were seated. Became absent minded and left us with empty wine glasses thus we ordered a full bottle of Rose.

Wine selections are limited as main concentrations are on organic wines; red and white.

Ambience was acceptable but the couch seating and cushions were made for a more bar lounge experience rather than a restaurant seating as they are too soft with no support.

Food on the other hand was a bit on the salty side, but portion serving was acceptable.

Nevertheless, there is room for improvement, provided it has only been opened for a couple of months. Improvement, will probably have to be focused on better wait staff and runners to bring down the wait time and dining experience and also better selection and concentration on the wine list.
