What a great surprise. We were heading to concert at terminal five and had never eaten here before, but it was convenient. We were delighted with the menu, the service and the ambiance. One of the owners greeted us and immediately help make us comfortable. We were with two friends and we all agreed that this will now be a destination restaurant.

My fifth visit and the best so far. I was introduced to the new chef and she's a keeper. I'm so glad the food improved. It's now more creative, better flavor, more detail. Thanks!

As a new restaurant... it has a very nice feeling of freash and invested .
But , the food was bland and lacked any uniqueness.
I had to send back my main course it was really not good...
And , it’s expensive for what you getting.

A wonderful surprise! Our first visit and the Mediterranean food was excellent and the lovely Irish waitress was wonderfully attentive. A little noisier than we like but probably due to bar action. Highly recommended!

The place was quiet and pleasant and the food was good. The Mediterranean options were quite interesting. Location is far from the maddening Times Square crowd. This place is good for quiet and unhurried time with close friends.

Disappointing food. My greek salad was fridge cold and soggy, obviously prepared hours before and kept in the fridge. My wife's meat balls were bland and tasteless. I ordered the grilled lamb chops: not cheap at $20 for 2, $40 for 4 or $59 for six (I chose 4). The chops were small although quite tasty - but almost cold and had been lying around in the kitchen too long. In spite of the price, nothing else was on the plate; one was expected to order sides extra. All I got was a half lemon, grilled and caramelised, I thought a nice touch until I picked it up to squeeze. It was stone cold and had obviously come straight out of the famous fridge. Needless to say, we will not be going back.

The restaurant is a gem in the making. Decidedly Greek in its menu, food preparation, decor and manner, it is nevertheless imaginative in its offerings. The location, among newly constructed residential high-rises on the far west side, is no doubt the beginning of a new destination as a large movie complex adjoins the restaurant. Drinks are imaginative and well priced. Highly recommended.

Most enjoyable. Attentive wait staff, quickly seated. Comfortable dining table with adequate space for conversation. My Kale salad with chicken and avocado was excellent. The fish tacos of my dinning partner were equally tasty.
Lots of space so this may get a bit louder when it fills.
Once the area apartments are fully built up this will be a real go to place. Hope it keeps it's charm.
