Greek
The stunning restaurant, which is the first of its kind in South Jersey, will transport guests to the Greek Islands with an atmosphere reminiscent of an inviting Mediterranean home, and a menu of authentic specialties, simply prepared, that represent the best of Greek cuisine. The restaurant specializes in whole grilled fish, which are flown in from the Greek islands, the shores of Morocco, Tunisia and Portugal, and procured from independent North American fishermen. We have created a welcoming restaurant designed with the comforts of a typical Greek home. We used materials such as hand-chiseled Jerusalem limestone floors, hand woven rugs, vaulted ceilings, antiqued stucco walls, wood plank floors and exposed wood beams to evoke the traditional atmosphere. A series of dining areas feature rustic farm tables, dark wood chairs with beige cushions and dining nooks with upholstered banquettes. The homelike ambience is accentuated with whitewashed walls.

Fantastic restaurant to bring a small group. It was EXTREMELY busy but we were able and to hear everyone at the table and share a great meal.

We had a very nice time. The food was excellent as it tasted delicious. I think that the noise level was too much as it was difficult to talk across the table.

On the open table I wrote that it was my birthday on Saturday and the restaurant did not even acknowledge this special occasion. Why do they ask the comment.

The food and service is always excellent. We always enjoy the fritters and spreads. This time we ordered the octopus which was amazing. We will definitely be back.

Valentine date. We were seated 30 minutes late for our 7:30 reservation.Our bread was served to us in what seemed to be an afterthought, (though the hummus was excellent). My shrimp appetizer arrived about 5 minutes before my partners crab cake. The crab was very good, the sauce in the shrimp also very good but the shrimp was a warning sign; just this this side of being over cooked. The mixed seafood orzo was good but my lobster linguini was like chewing a pencil eraser.

Inedible.

Needless to say our entire dining experience was ruined and we decided not to stay and waste more money on desert and coffee. The waitress was kind enough to remove the lobster from the bill though we still had a $150 disappointment that we were required to pay for.

Too crowded with tables right on top of each other. Other tables listening to our conversations. Food was a bit mediocre. Nothing bad, nothing super. Overall, blah experience.....
