Took my wife here for her Birthday Dinner, the atmosphere is really cute and eye catching. The food was delicious and was served quickly. The staff was fantastic and personable. Made the night all the more special with a nice dessert at the end.

Kitchen was having an off day. Some food cold, sides delivered late. Several of the wait staff appeared new and untrained. Usually very good so we will be back again and see how it goes.

THE MEAT PLATTER COMES WITH TZIKI AND PEPPER HUMMUS. WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT AND ORDERED IT AS AN APPETIZER. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER EXPERIENCE IF WAITER TOLD US THAT. OTHER THAN THAT, THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND WE SAT OUTSIDE TO AVOID THE NOISE INSIDE.

We were immediately greeting by a beautiful and charming person by the name of Soula who happens to be the executive manager. We told her we love Greek food and she replied you are in the right place. We were seated and were given the menu to review. Soula was very helpful and introduced Alexandra who also assisted us with our menu selections. Every item we ordered was fresh and expertly prepared. The sesame seed feta cheese was an epicurean surprise and unexpected treat. The whole time we were there we received attention and all our questions were answered. This is a "go to" place and the interior is fresh and welcome. You can easily imagine that you are actually in Greece enjoying an upscale dining experience. We were so pleased with our food that we ordered too much and needed to take home the remainder. That night we enjoyed a second round of Oliv Pit at home imagining we were still in Greece. What a great first time experience!

Probably the most authentic Greek food outside Greece I had in the US.
Everything is delicious, fresh, presented lovely and on time . The courtyard sitting is cozy and reminds me of vacation . Even their simple Tsaziki is the bomb!
Can’t wait to come back .

Service was ok but food was mediocre at best. Tried the highly pushed special of baked mixed vegetables as a side dish, inedible mush. Bronzino was over cooked and dry and lamb chops were just ok. We were hoping for much more from the new owners here.

My wife came here with girlfriends for dinner and raved about the restaurant. So we decided to go with friends.

Sat out back on the outdoor patio. They give you pita bread with olive oil and salt.

Started with the GREEK VILLAGE SALAD, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Red Onions, Kalamata Olives, Mint, Barrel Aged Feta, Green Peppers, Mountain Oregano, and Kalamata Olive Oil. It was very good but one of my pet peeves is when you tell the wait staff that you are going to share it and they don't split it in the kitchen.

For mains, my wife saw the prawns when she was there before and ordered them. GRILLED PRAWNS with Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Parsley. some were under cooked. just fair.

I ordered the GRILLED WHOLE BRANZINO with Lemon, Capers, Preserved Lemon Vinaigrette, and Parsley. Supposed to be filet but I had some bones. Very Bland.

One and out.

First time back since new ownership took over. Huge improvement. Food was quite good and exceeded our expectations. We dine outdoors, in back of restaurant and it was extremely pleasant and made having a conversation easy. Service staff were helpful, efficient and welcoming. However, staff were stretched too thin. As good and hardworking as they were it was difficult for them manage so many tables. Other than that recommendation, we had a fine dinner and definitely plan to return.

The food was quite good and well prepared. They were willing to accommodate to our desires. Most impressive, they are sensitive to gluten free needs (I have celiac) including gluten free pita. They still (we were there last year for an unacceptable experience) have not gotten service as well down as befits a quality restaurant even though the staff seem to be trying. Hopefully that will improve.

There are many reasons not to return but most important my meal was just terrible. I ordered the grilled chicken breast. It arrived 5 minutes before my husband's entree. The breast was sliced into strips on the plate and despite being under cooked by my standards it was dry and can only be described as cardboard. There was absolutely no seasoning whatsoever. It was accompanied by a small romaine salad that was rusted and as unappealing as the chicken it lay beside. The picture posted on google was definitely not what I was served. Not only didn't a server come back to check on our meals but when we asked for a check with my dinner virtually untouched our server didn't even ask why. We don't like to make a fuss. The patio was busy and it would have been hard to be discreet. The restaurant was understaffed with two servers and a man (possibly the owner or manager) who seated people and delivered food mostly incorrectly from what we could see. It wasn't enough staff with the patio filled and a few tables occupied inside. They just didn't seem to have it together. We will not be returning!

To start they didn’t honor our reservation, made on Open Table. The appetizers were dry, over cooked and tasteless. I ordered rare lamb chops and they came out like shoe leather. The place is expensive and not good. Don’t waste your time or money.

Our dining experience was great from start to finish. We were seated on time and very cordially. We were greeted immediately at our table and provided with a beverage. Our waitress was very attentive and really added to the authentic Greek atmosphere. Food was awesome from trio of dips to seafood platter. Too full for dessert:)
