Last time here the food was great. This time not consistent and an off night.
Great ambiance. Food is always amazing
So much to choose from so we tried the all you can eat brunch. Some items were good, but most were great. Amazing spanakopita! Our server was pleasant and attentive despite being very busy. She explained ingredients and made suggestions. The waitstaff was quick to clear finished plates. All in all a great brunch experience.
Super unique brunch spot!!! Loved that the menu was unlike anything you normally see at brunch. Yes, the egg and toast purists will be able to find a dish to enjoy but if you want to try something new, Check it out!!!
Service and food competed for “best of” the experience. :)
Tzatziki was authentic and awesome!
Horiatiki salad was awesome!
Chicken souvlaki was unique, perfectly flavored, and as you might guess...awesome!!
Service...subtle and attentive...water glasses never more than half full...perfect experience.
Thanks so much.
The service was truly incredible, and the bartenders are incredible. I had the best cocktail of my life there. Hola chicas was the perfect blend of everything I wanted in a drink.
Well let's say we will never go there again. I have given this place multiple tries hoping for this one time we will leave with a happy face...but it never happens.
We are a gourmand people and yes we are picky and critical of our food. So for you out there who has never been & lived in Greece and never had authentic Greek food, you might be pleasantly surprised with your meal. Kapnos calls it mainland Geek cuisine; well sorry Kpanos but we have to disagree. In our opinion, the food is very Americanized and very expensive for the quality of food we have been served. Sorry to be so blunt with my review this time as I have waited a long while before doing it, waiting for things to improve at Kapnos!
The hostess sat us almost immediately and was very friendly. The waiter was very catering and attempted to accommodate our 3 year old son who was napping. The food was Delicious! We will definitely be going back!
Food took a long time
To arrive. None of the dishes were explained. Server seemed to only come when we ordered and deliver dishes
Live atmosphere, delicious healthy food suitable for sharing so that you can order lots of different dishes, airy elegant design. And a fantastic birthday sparkler !
Great food and service.
This was our first time dining here. We really enjoyed it and tried a variety of things. Next time, we will get the sampler of 3 spreads and the lamb. The lamb was absolutely delicious and I highly recommend it! A little bit of a pricey restaurant and everything is served tapas-style.
Well prepared and delicious selections - the seafood and meat dishes are all excellent. Fast service, good bar. The upstairs is very nice for groups as well.
Favorite restaurant of ours, having come here for several years now. Food and wine recommendations are always spot on. Unfortunately, this time was not eligible for dining points.
Many hits and fewer misses. Service on a recent Friday evening was sub-par.
All choices were very well prepared. The hummus was very fresh and flavorful and served with pita bread that was just made. The zucchini patties were delicious. The sardines were very fresh. The split lamb was delicious. The red snapper was very good and served with tasty potatoes and vegetables. The baklava was classic and served with ice cream. The walnut cake was very dense and good, and served with mint ice cream that was not too minty. Our server was very nice and attentive. The background noise (piped in music) was loud. Even with few people in the restaurant, it was difficult to hear.
Fanatic lamb. Great food and drink overall. Also, the server, Melvin, was on point. He checked on us at an appropriate frequency, he was great knowledge about the menu and cognizant of any food allergies throughout the meal. Also provided a nice little dessert for my wife’s birthday as indicated in the Open Table reservation. He provided a great experience to a great evening.
I've gone here for HH and brunch (more often for HH -- and I've dragged many friends, who are now all fans, too!). Both are tremendous values, with incredible food and great service. Always outstanding!
A fun and tasty gem. Six of us shared many dishes that are all delicious. All of us overate, but happily so. We even polished off with three desserts, very unusual for any of us, but the camaraderie boosted our appetite which was satiated by the wonderful food.
Food overpriced for the quality. Taramosalata tasted more like cauliflower than fish roe. Spanakopita was soggy, and the spinach was stringy. The Saganaki and the Drinks were excellent, so it wasn’t a complete loss.
Great service, beef souvlaki and roast pork were excellent! Walnut tart cake w/ mint ice cream was delicious! ThankU
Waiter was superb. Helped us make good choices and very pleasant.
My friends and I came here for brunch and had a wonderful time. Our server was very attentive. The all-you-can-eat brunch and Mimosas was fantastic. We will definitely be back again.
food was good but expensive. We both got sick, maybe from the salad. Would not go again.
The menu provided special notations for vegan, dairy, and other sensitivities.
Despite being a large place with a packed room full of diners, we were able to hear each other without raising our voice. The food and service were excellent.
Very good service and very good food. Adequate space and not noisy.
Great food. Had the Spit-roasted Lamb.
We will return
Great brunch, wonderful spit lamb and mimosas. Would highly recommend doing the All-You-Can-Eat brunch with $0.25 mimosas.
Went to brunch with some friends and we overall had a very pleasant experience. We shared one of the spreads to begin with and then each had our own entrees (breakfast gyro, baked eggs, and merguez gravy). All of the entrees are a good size for brunch and very reasonably priced. There are options for multiple types of diets which makes it a great option for larger groups of people with various needs.
Too expensive for the quality & quantity of foods you get. The main for the table Chicken dish i ordered was good but i cannot say the same for all the small cold mezzes. Food took a while to arrive on a slow Saturday night. They forgot to bring in the Clam chevice i ordered; i had to remind waiter who didappeared for most of the time we were there, about that order. I guess they were all ready to close for the night. Disappointed to say the least
The food was outstanding and servive very good. A bit noisy in the evening. Would definitely go back.
Loved the food and service! The server had a lot of positive energy.
Food was good! Service was very slow.
I'm so glad we stumbled across this place. I took my fiancee here for her birthday and we both loved the food and service. We got the all you can eat brunch and samplee a lot of the food. The Chicken and Waffles, Bacon, spanakopita, and the choose your own spreads were all amazing. The chicken that came with the Waffles was especially good. We also had the Mac and Cheese and Pottatto Hash, but we weren't as impressed with those. For desert we had the baklava and bougatsa and both of those were amazing as well. For my fiance's birthday they brought out a sparkler and champagne for the both of us. Thank you for giving us a memorable experience!
Went for Brunch - good food, service was OK.
Bottomless brunch was wonderful!
Terrific food and service. Noise level pretty high, though.
The food and service were excellent, but if you're looking for some place to have intimate dialogue, this isn't your place.
