Excellent food and service. We did the price
Fixe. For $30 you get an appetizer, entree, dessert and glass of wine. The portions are very big, I took half of my dinner home. The hummus and spanikopita were my favorite!
Would definitely go back.

Told the waiter I’m gluten free and the lamb shank came on a pita. Waiter recommended the lamb shank and said it was very tender. That wasn’t the case.

Food was very good, but used to be a bit better. Service was a bit slow and our meals were cold. My kebobs were slightly over cooked, perhaps as a result of sitting too long. Not sure if this was just our server, since the table next to us came in well after us but left at the same time.

Having been numerous restaurants in their chain I was disappointed with food. Perhaps it was a cold evening and we sat down to dinner at 8:30PM (not rotate) but the main courses were very dried out! Restaurant itself was charming in decor and our waiter was very attentive.

I ordered the gyro plater.. the meat which was totally over looked and dry and my date had fish that too was overcooked. vegetables were good so willing to give it another try!

We were disappointed at our most recent visit. We have had several very good experiences at this restaurant, but on our visit on 9/24, we found the food to be disappointing, both of our entries very dry and lacked flavor. the service was painfully slow, so much so, that we had to forego desert in order to make a local show that we though we had allotted more than enough time for.

We were meeting old friends here, halfway between our residences. All of us had been here before, and were looking forward to it. We were not disappointed. We were ushered quickly to a lovely table in the beautifully appointed back room, enjoyed delicious sangria, wonderful food (several of us were vegetarian and enjoyed the selection), and were allowed to linger as long as we wanted for our visit. We had great service, leftovers, and capped off the night with fine strong coffee and Mediterranean desseats. A perfect evening. We had such a good time, we did not notice until leaving that he place had filled while we were eating, but we never felt pressured by the staff, or bothered by the other customers. Definitely will be back.

The setting, food and service cannot be beat. Pricing is moderate with good value. Sign up for their mailing list and discounts and "special events" are conveyed to you on a periodic basis.
Have brought friends and family many times to this wonderful restaurant. Always had a great time and will definitely return time and time again.

Really enjoyed my meal which was a kale salad with grilled octopus.. My friend who ordered a grilled octopus platter wasn't quite as thrilled. His octopus tasted very salty whereas mine, mixed with the salad had a totally different flavor. I would definitely go back as there were many other things on the menu that appealed to me.

Took my son here for his after-graduation meal. Went with family & close friends. Food was plentiful and delicious. Had been here before for Sunday brunch which was good and a friend's anniversary lunch-food was just as good. Service was a bit slow but not too bad. I would recommend this place for good Mediterranean food.

The food was good and the service just so so. I was disappointed you did not have the fried calamari. We had to ask for coffee and water. The charge for the coffee was $12.50 which I thought was excessive. Also there was a Mimosa on the check but I had a bloody Mary not a Mimosa.

Our experience was one of the worst our lives. When we arrived at the restaurant for our 9:45 reservation we were informed that they did not have a reservation for us and that they were closing and could not serve us. It didn't matter that I showed them the reservation on my Open Table App. They blamed Open Table, would not take any responsibility, and were very rude. They did not offer us any compensation, claiming only the owner could do that. We were then forced to find another restaurant that was open with a regular price menu - not an easy thing to do on New Year's Eve. My friends and I will not be using Open Table again since we will not be able to trust that our reservation will be honored.

Rating the restaurant 1 star based on having made/confirmed a reservation through Open Table for 9:00pm on a Wednesday and arriving 5 minutes prior to see the restaurant closed early. Had to have my birthday dinner for 2 somewhere else in the area. I've actually been here before and the food, service and ambiance rates as very good, in my opinion.

Loved having the option of "simple" salmon/ shrimp........due to all of the dietary no-nos at our table.
everything was fresh and delicious served by our kind, helpful waitress.
the sorbet was really sherbert/not appropriate for our lactose intolerant cousins.....the only disappointment

This place has been an old reliable for decades and is an easy choice for an affordable meal in the neighborhood. I was therefore delighted to see that they were on Open Table and made a reservation. But when we went in, they appeared to know nothing about it, and one server actually said they were not on Open Table. Only when I showed my reservation did they fetch the manager who said they don't have a computer to check me in. He wrote down my name and said he would call Open Table to see what he could do. Apparently he managed to do whatever it was, because I did get the request for a review. I hope they will have gotten there act together before I return.
