Nothing was mentioned on OpenTable table about a pre-fixe menu for Valentine’s Day like other restaurants, was not expecting that. We asked for a different table as ours was very unstable and were told it was for a larger party of 4 however table was already set for 2 only and later a couple was seated there, not a larger party. The waiter had to put something under the base to stabilize the table. Asked for a cocktail and were told they were out of the ingredients. The service was average at best and the lobster was undercooked. Not a Great experience at all.

DO NOT DINE AT THIS RESTAURANT, THERE ARE 4 BETTER CHOICES WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THIS PLACE

The Valentines Day pre-fix menu was poorly selected and did not display any of the creativity you would expect when spending $175. The up-charge for Lobster was an additional $29; however, I was over charged $46. I rarely read my receipt in detail and thankfully I caught thier mistake, but I wonder how many others were billed incorrectly that overpayed. Our waiter was absent, never checked on us nor did he serve any of the courses. I will say, the supporting staff was very pleasant but the waiter was arrogant and flustered when caught over charging. We were there celebrating a special occasion, which the restaurants confirming app did a good job gathering the information. Sadly, no one cared on staff, there was no mention or excitement so I think the app is useless and no one pays attention.
This was a definite miss, poor choice of restaurants to celebrate an occasion.

Consistently excellent food and good service. We've been at this restaurant three or four times. It is more expensive than the comparable restaurants in its class, but because it has outdoor dining (great for the time of covid) and is close to us, we keep returning.
This time we were there for Valentine Day. Had made a reservation weeks in advance with a credit card on Open Table, were sent several reminder/confirmation texts.
When we showed up, we were told, not asked, "Certainly, you must know that today we are serving a preset menu. Certainly we have informed you about it."
No, they had not, but what are you going to do on Valentine Day? Walk away to punish them?
The price of the preset menu was certainly cheaper than if we had ordered all the dishes a la cart, but, honestly, we wouldn't have ordered all of them.

The Food was cold, and we wait 45 minutes for our order.
Service is slow.
Some times I don't care about the high price since the food be extraordinary.
However, 35$ for a cold kebab of mignon with five small pieces is definitely Too much!

Everything was delicious, but seriously - $37 for 1 medium size tiger prawn?
That is absurd.

It was my 2nd time and last time at this restaurant. 1st was a Sunday they had more options on the menu and reasonably priced. Food and Service were OK.
At this time, went for dinner. Girls night out.
Very few options on the menu, it was difficult to choose. SUPER EXPENSIVE!!!
Food took too long to be served and the Service was HORRIBLE!!!

It’s about time a little Greek came to Aventura’s coast. It’s delicious and on point. Sit outside to get that Greek Style feeling. The lamb chops and fried cheese are incredible. Eat and drink life!

👌🏻the inside of the restaurant smells a bit strong of fish, best to sit outside. The saganaki was delicious, gyro was good, the chicken bowl had way too much greens for my taste.

Waited 30 minutes at the table once we were seated for our drinks even longer. Took a long time for the food to come out. One person in our party didn’t even get her meal we had to keep asking where it was. Once the food came it was very good. They need to get their act together with the service.

I had the most spectacular Prawns Saganaki, what topped that was the best Grilled Octopus I've had in ANY Greek Restaurant and I've been to at least 2 dozen between Florida and New York, but the Pièce De Résistance was the Rice of Pudding just like my Grandmother used to make.

5 Stars!!!!

We were 4. Drinks..I was served the wrong vodka-twice- MAJOR no no for a martini. Special cocktails were great. Zucchini -asked for crispy came out oily (not crispy) & VERY salty. Octopus was good, again LOTS of salt. Langostine (tiger prawn?), came raw-returned. Greek salad - good feta. Dover Sole - very tasty. Server was great! Manager wrote to me he was looking into experience and give him a few days...that was 2 weeks ago! No follow up. Friends at 2 other tables had similar experience.
