The food was delicious. Only criticism would be is that it was a little dark inside and difficult to read the menus. Also did not like the menu - it was difficult to handle.

I always appreciate when I return to a restaurant because I had a prior good experience and they can deliver the same meal consistently. I went to dinner with a friend and had suggested this place because of this very reason - we were both very hungry and just wanted something good! It was a plus that it just so happened to be wine Wednesday too. (:

I loved so many of the items we tried. The octopus and calamari were stellar, the pita is amazing---pillowy and a just a tiny bit chewy. I didn't love the pasta bake I ordered because I didn't realize it contained nutmeg- one of the only spices I can't stand. Every other food was amazing though, including the gyro!

Took our newest foster child out for a cultural adventure.
Boy was it ever! The flaming cheese went over well. As did the Souvlakia. The chocolate cake put it over the top. Service was a bit spotty as our server forgot our dolmas till the very end. But we love this venue and will always come back.

One of the only places at LynLake intersection that isn't geared to 20 and 30-year-olds, which makes it a good before-theater restaurant for the more mature set. It's always welcoming with good food and good service. The recent updates to the decor and the menu are well done. In summer, try the patio!

Dry bland salmon and very dry, tasteless rice. They seated us in a makeshift table in front of a door that’s open in warmer months. It made us feel secondary, like we were in the way.

We attended for an "after" theater/event dinner, had an 8:45pm reservation for 2. Hostess walked us by other quieter locations and sat us directly across from the bar where it was fairly noisy. Server perhaps was irritated that we didn't order appetizers and drinks? We ordered dinner (Gyro platter & Mediterranean chicken), husband ordered a glass of wine to have with dinner, which came a while after we got our food. Didn't ask if I wanted more water, so I had nothing to drink with my food. The food was very good, which is why I would try the place again. Server never game back to refill waters, which we both drained. We could see him leaning against the end of the bar, so he wasn't too busy. He came to ask if we were ready for the check. After he brought the check back for me to sign, then he brought water. Kind of late. Maybe he had gotten plenty of tips already that evening, so he wasn't overly concerned about us.

I always end up ordering octopus when I come here because the way they prepare it is delicious.
Be careful when ordering appetizers or alcohol though because it can get very expensive if you're not careful.

Years ago this was our go to restaurant. We hadn't been there in a while so decided to go back and were so disappointed. The restaurant was so dark that you couldn't read the menu - many patrons around us were using their phones for light. It took an hour for our food to arrive despite the restaurant being only half-full. It was delicious, but we were starving by the time it arrived.
