Had the Octopus which is one of my favorites and it was perfectly grilled. My green beans were a little over cooked but everything else was very good.

The restaurant is super cute and works well for an everyday causal get together or a romantic dinner! Very pretty and I love the clean, fresh look.
Food options are great and reasonably priced and sized. Our table (party of 3) ordered:
• zucchini fritters - I love zucchini and this has an interesting twist as it was stuffed with cheese. Love it. Would have liked to try to regular zucchini strips but they’re beer battered and I’m not sure how overwhelming that would be.
• beet salad - was a hit with our beet lovers
• fried octopus - perfect for our seafood loving foodie
• salmon - delicious and fresh
• chicken pita - nicely seasoned and fresh
We also had some leftovers—and the bread is delish.
My only reason for docking a star was our server. While kind, he was very absent despite it being early lunch and not busy. When he was at our table, he had a little attitude that he had to be there. The other server working was super friendly so it’s not a restaurant issue.
Would definitely return with my husband and try some other dishes!

This place came highly rated by everyone I know. It was perfectly fine, but not a cut above other mainstream restaurants in the area. While you will have a nice experience there, you could get the same quality food at other restaurants for less. The service was very nice and attentive. The extra bread was extra, they don't tell you that. You can do better price/performance wise.

The best Greek food I have ever had in a restaurant in the US; as good as my Yiayia made. Attentive, professional service. Go there.

I have been to Our Mom Eugenia multiple times, and this is a review after my 5th visit. Everything was excellent! Great service, wonderful atmosphere and high quality food. On this visit, I took 6 family members and we weren't sure how much we would eat, so we started with 7 appetizers - this is a great place for sharing dishes. Highly recommend the saganaki and calamari. Their bread is delicious! We were still hungry so we ordered some salads, chicken and vegetarian dishes. We werent going to order dessert, but the waiter recommended the Looukoumades and it was enough for all of us to share. So yummy! Wish I had taken photos, but we ate everything so quickly.
I really cant say enough good things about this place. I have been here for dates, and group outings. I have eaten outdoors and indoors at this restaurant and both provide great atmosphere. Every time they have blown me away. I love that the restaurant is tucked away at one end of Mosaic, so there is a lot less foot and vehicle traffic.
This last visit was on a Monday night, and the place was pretty busy - so be sure to make a reservation.

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!

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.
