Our food was so delicious! I have a gluten sensitivity and I had no problem finding something to eat. The food was fresh and flavorful, we will definitely be going back.

Lucky to get a Saturday night reservation. We had the Moussaka, Swordfish Kebab, Smoked Lamb gyro and Cod dish - the restaurant could use some acoustical tiles to absorb loud noises.

The food was just amazing. We had the Lamb Sugo and the Lobster Mac-n-Cheese. They both had amazing flavor. The amount of Lobster was well worth the money. We also had the Fig cake for dessert, it was so decadent. I can't wait to go back. Thanks Nick for a great experience.

Very nice and friendly wait staff. Felt like it was family owned and run but I’m not sure it is. Loved the Kabobs. Need to serve some bread or crackers with the seared tuna small plate.

Trying too hard to be more than a Greek Restaurant. The spreads were way to salty and the gyros was the worse I have have ever eaten.

I can’t believe we have never tried this restaurant before! Everything was absolutely DELICIOUS!! The skordalia appetizer was the best we have ever had - and we have dined in Greektown in Chicago many times. The grilled octopus entree was fantastic - huge portion and you could cut the octopus with a fork it was so tender. The rack of lamb was melt-in-your mouth delicious! I would HIGHLY recommend! Please support this wonderful restaurant during this pandemic and carry-out if the dining room closes...the staff and food is exceptional!!

Loved the Avgolemono, hope some day they add an option for a smaller portion (they do provide a take home container). My lamb kabob was delicious and the Spanakopita was delightful as well. My bf was a little disappointed in his lamb shank, I believe it was too fatty for his taste. He loved the wine he ordered so much that he looked it up online...and then found it priced per bottle what he was charged per glass, but I guess that is not uncommon. Overall, we liked it a lot and want to try more of their menu items :)

My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant very much. We love Greek food and have been having trouble finding great Greek in the Northwest suburbs. The service was strong, I felt confident in their management of Covid issues and the food was delicious. I will recommend this restaurant for great Greek in our area.

I celebrated my birthday with my husband there and it was raining outside. We err the first to arrive for the evening hour and it was nice that other 2 set of guests were seated in distance from us. The service was great, our server was attentive and engaged the right amount! Then the food came out and wow! Usually I go to Greek Town in Chicago but I found me Greek resto near home. I ordered the branzino and that was delish. He said for one but we had appetizers prior so that filled me up. Oh and Happy Hour from 4p-5p that included 1/2 off all apps was great! I’ll definitely be back!

Delicious avgolemeno; mushy “oyster lamb bacon” special starter I’d avoid it and would be surprised if it reappears on menu; salty taramasalata; not enough bread to dip in dips (downright stingy I don’t want to keep asking for bread / pita slices - put enough to account for how much dip we have). Moussaka not good- heavy white sauce overwhelms any other flavors; baked chicken delicious; chicken kabob okay; heavy-on-the-dill Greek salad. All in all a spotty experience like the place is new. They need to refine some of their recipes.

It was a very enjoyable evening. We loved the hummus trio. My fiancé had the lamb chops, and I had the shrimp kebabs. They were both very good. I thought the price of a drink- vodka and club soda was alil outrageous at $10 each, but the service was excellent. We also had the baklava which was a huge portion

Everything was DELICIOUS!!! Like, next level delicious! Went with a group of 6 and sat outside. We ordered almost every appetizer on the menu and everything was more delicious than the next. The chickpeas, octopus and corn salad were my favs, but the spanakopita was phenomenal as well, so are the spreads. Dinner we had swordfish kabobs and branzino- both spectacular. Our waiter was super nice, gave great recommendations and did not rush us at all. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to come back again!
