Sat in the temporary plastic outdoor tent. Tables were distanced well. Server was very friendly and attentive. Made sure we had everything we needed.

The food was delicious and plated in a very appealing way. Plenty of healthy options and great flavors

I always love this restaurant so I'm happy to visit during these outdoor dining days. I do wish there were some plastic barriers within the tent, but otherwise great and wonderful service!

Great service and good food. The wait staff went above and beyond to make your experience feel like you were at a 5-star restaurant. We couldn't decide on the Mediterranean dips so we chose the pick 3 option and went with the Tzatziki dip, Pink Queen dip and Ajvar dip. We decided to share a Mezze and Entree. We ordered the Grilled Portuguese Octupus and the Lamb Sauteed. The Lamb Sauteed was perfectly cooked infused with the tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, pepper and garlic flavors.

Really great indoor dining experience. They get your info for contact tracing. They also did not rush you out compared to other restaurants these days. And less people inside makes for a nicer ambiance indoors. Great and friendly local restaurant.

Nice dishes with a Mediterranean flair. Food choices a little out of the ordinary but that are also appealing to a more traditional palate.
Love their stuffed cabbage and for those into desserts, the baklava is sure to please

Everything was cooked to perfection. I went with a group of friends and we shared everything. The portions were large and easily shareable. We ordered the grilled calimari (fresh and delicious), the flank steak (well-seasoned and tender), the grilled shrimp ( perfect!!!) and the chicken shish (also perfect). Everything, including the vegetables was just right. If you like things spicier, ask for their homemade hot sauce. It’s delicious! We had wine, but we didn’t try dessert. Next time. I can’t wait to go back. (Service was also terrific).

Was not blown away by either the food or the value. I have lived for many years in the middle east and I was just not that impressed with the food here. Not bad, but not great either and a bit expensive for what it is. Can do better at many other places in the city and actually in this neighborhood. Again, nothing really wrong here, but just no wow factor.
