I kid you not, this place gets better everytime I go! We are outside and were serenaded by a Greek performer. And Eugenia was there this time! Couldn’t have been better. Still my fav spot in the whole dmv!

Been craving authentic Greek food since moving from SE Michigan 3yrs ago. Excellent good, exactly what we were looking for. Couldn’t be more pleased. Patio was great, umbrellas helped block the sun. Attentive waitstaff. We’ll be back

Dear Susan, thank you so much for your kind feedback! We apologize for the conversation volume indoors. This isn't a problem we had to contend with before, since we opened during the pandemic under strict social distancing protocols. An acoustics expert visited us last week and the materials he ordered are arriving this week, so hopefully this issue will be mitigated to some extent. Thank you for your understanding, looking forward to seeing you again soon, all the best!

The best sit-down restaurant in Mosaic for me. The food tastes like authentic Greek food and each dish was very delicious. The portion sizes were also a nice size. Would highly recommend.

Ordered lamb chops medium. Came out medium rare. Branzino was disappointing filets not the whole fish. For high prices food was disappointing. On a cool night outside reservation portable heaters would have been nice, but no such accommodation. It was a little too cold to sit outside for long.

Had a nice outdoor lunch. Unfortunately, it was very breezy.

The food was very good - it came out of the kitchen a little too fast.

The calamari were delicious, but it would probably have been better to have the oil hotter so the crust would be crunchy, instead of soggy. Still it was very good.

I really enjoy their food.

It was fantastic but, what turns this incredible experience into one of the worst I have ever endured was being told to leave because we overstayed our welcome— by the manager.

The manager never checked on my table. I watched him check on every table periodically except for mine. Not only did we feel singled out but also highly disrespected.

I am aware of the time limit for reservations. However, that was not mentioned nor discussed during my reservation from either manager or server. I did not hear any mention or reminders of time limits from any servers or the manager. Some of my friends were having dinner at this Greek restaurant during that same time frame. When I shared my experience of what happened, they expressed mutual disappointment because they too were told to leave because they “overstayed their welcome”.

My family and I spent almost $400 that day in under 2 hours and 20 minutes. You can check the receipt. No one complained to my family for ordering food constantly throughout our reservation. So what justifies disrespect and devaluation towards my family?

I am here making this complaint because I want to understand how this is acceptable. Not only because it happened to my family in our reservation but also to my friends and their reservation.

The manager’s name is Alessandro or Alessandro. It was our first time going to this restaurant, and although the food was excellent, he left a more memorable impression.

I hope this complaint creates a conversation of accountability and change for the better in regards to customer service.

Decided to dine outside Bc I didnt feel ready yet to dine indoors. Wish they had umbrellas available for all diners but they only had them available for a few tables. We were in the shade for half our meal so that wasn’t so bad. My biggest complaint was the time between our initial greeting from our server to when we got to order was too long. After that the food came out quickly which was nice and flavors and portions were fantastic. Would come here again.

We were 15 minutes early and they were able to seat us. Our waiter was very nice and was able to discuss the menus and make helpful suggestions.

We had a lovely Anniversary dinner and would return.



Cons: the seats were uncomfortable, I had noticed they had Rip Van Winkle and Blanton’s on the top shelf but wasn’t serving it.

I was fortunate to overhear a conversation between a Greek cashier at Trader Joe's and the customer in front of me. She recommended this place as the most authentic Greek food, although pretty expensive. Nailed it. The food is so good I almost cried. Avgolemono is the best I've ever had. The lamb chops were perfectly cooked, well-marinated and delicately garnished with a few drops of pesto. The potatoes were lemony and herby and just wonderful. The baklava was crispy, nutty and, most importantly, not excessively sweet or cinnamony. Obsessed as I am with the avgolemono, I got some to take out. As if the splendid food weren't enough, our server was a delight! An actual Greek, efficient and sweet. Note: this location has outdoor seating while the Great Falls one doesn't.

We enjoyed our food and the food server was friendly, patient and answered our questions. I appreciate that GF items are marked on the menu. They do a good job with covid precautions and I like that there's an option to sit outdoors, too. I heard they have live music on the weekends, too. I posted about my positive experience on two neighborhood groups I belong to so that people know it's there. :) We will definitely be back!

Our lunch was amazing! We had heard that the food was fantastic and that intelligence undersold how authentic and delicious everything was. Our server was attentive without hovering and, despite the fact that the indoor dining room was a little noisier than we'd have liked, the overall experience was terrific. We'll be back.
