this is my second visit here..I am very happy with the quality of the food presented here.
The drinks are well done..I had a wonderful salmon dish with interesting accompanying sides.
Our waiter was attentive and not overly so.
The ambiance is sophisticated, however the noise level is a bit high.

Underwhelming food, but wonderful service, nice ambiance and just one w/c.

I met a friend for lunch there. We had octopus, which turned out too briny and too soft. It practically fell apart under fork. Asparagus creme soup had a nice vitamix smooth texture, but lacked zing. Perhaps all the chef’s zing and lemons went into octopus? Chicken kebab was nicely and juicy, but kale Caesar had too little dressing to be edible. Yogurt panna cotta was pleasantly studded with orange zest and had refreshing not too heavy taste.
Even though the food was hit and miss, Lefkes’ service was impeccable. The waiters were supremely attentive and very good. Will give this place another try, with service this good, I will surely find a to-die-for item worthy of regular return in their menu.

This place has potential. Service has improved greatly. But the cuisine is so-so. The pink snapper we ate was not good. The Branzino was very good. I suggest the managers spend some time at Milos and copy their model as closely as possible.

Held a business meeting during lunchtime. The atmosphere in the restaurant is elegant while providing a luncheon menu that was reasonable priced and high in quality.

The service was fabulous both server and manager checking in to see if we were enjoying experience. These check-in were just the right time and duration and were truly caring to hear our input.

The noise level was low considering there were multiple tables and soft music playing through the restaurants sound system.

I recommend this for lunch, have not gone there for dinner.... yet.

I'll be back

We were 8 adults celebrating birthdays here because we had such a good experience on our 2 previous visits that we suggested this dinner. The service was horrible. It took an hour and 3 rounds of bread before we were able to have someone take our order After multiple attempts to order another waiter approached. The dips we ordered came without pita. The pita arrived much after because we requested it. The wine bottle took forever to arrive. Not all the menu items were available by the time we ordered. All in all it was a very disappointing experience. I have to say that all 4 couples would hesitate to return. I am writing this because if it were my business I would want to be aware. I can understand something being amiss but this was truly disappointing in every way

Our dinner was a disaster. The waiter and staff could not bring out our appetizers in dinner in the correct order no matter how many times it was clarified. We did not make one modification on the food. Additionally, the wrong sushi was brought out, the vegetable side dishes were forgotten. It was a comedy of errors and while the waiter apologized no management came over. A drink at the bar might be ok - and some sushi but i would never have a "meal" here again.

I’ll begin with, the menu was pre fix, so creativity of the kitchen was slightly stifled. The menu was for Valentine’s Day. Had been in the space when it was American Cut and they did a great job lightening the atmosphere both literally and figuratively. Much more of a Greek restaurant and less of a steak house (obviously). They did keep the bar which was a highlight of A.C. The food was “okay”, but again it was a pre fix menu. That said, we had the lobster bisque which was fairly void of lobster. The octopus appetizer was pretty solid with a great char, but not over-charred. The service, however, was quite lack-luster. The pace of courses was good, but the interactions and the service by the staff was just fair. They seemed to banging into each other (literally) and we noticed other tables having a tough time with order pace and poor communication... The complimentary strawberries were not noted as complimentary anywhere and the couple next to us asked about them. The wait staff actually said they didn’t know why they got them and took them away only to have them brought back by the manager with an apology.

Despite this evening, we will likely give them another shot - probably sit at the bar...

The food was very good, the service left much, very much to be desired. They admitted to being understaffed but that did not explain taking three of five entree orders and not until they delivered two other entree's did they tell us they were out of the other three meals? So we had to select other options after two in our party began eating...then it took about 20 minutes to deliver the three replacement meals, leaving two in our party to sit empty handed and wait for us to finish our entrees.
We were told the server had entered our entrees (Three of them) wrong causing the delay in advising us about the error but that made no sense. They bought us a round of drinks to "Compensate" us for the mistakes, not much by way of compensating us for a dissatisfying overall experience.

AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS FOOD!!! We dined last week & had a marvelous time. If you like seafood, this place is for you! Everything is super fresh & delicious (displayed for you as you walk in), wonderful selection with a great atmosphere. We had the stuffed calamari, lobster sushi, lavraki with brussels sprouts and ink seafood risotto. Everything was absolute perfection. We can't wait to come back again!!!!
