Service was mediocre, waiter was changed due to the first one dropping a bottle of beer on my guests. Second waiter forgot to bring our orders (drinks/sauces). Expected better service especially at this restaurant.

We started with the mussels which were amazing. The server suggested crab cakes and lobster mac and cheese which I thought was a weird suggestion for a Greek restaurant but, they came out really good. I had the bronzino with the jalapeno bianco cause which was a little salty for my liking but was still good. Just wish they had not authentic Greek dishes. I would recommend for a good seafood spot with River Oaks prices.

Mixed bag: Food and service uneven, prices very high given quality.

Covid protocols weak: No QR codes, no wiping down seats.

FOOD, mixed reaction: appetizers were lamb ribs and waygu stuffed grape leaves -- not good, very over-priced. Lobster risotto with truffles - fresh well cooked lobster but truffle overpowered the dish. Crab cake was large, more bread/less chunk crab meat than I expected (especially for the venue/price).

Wine list was small, unknown vinyards, but no descriptions. The server had my companion taste before committing to a wine. Kudos on this one!

No non-alcholic beer or specialty mocktails ...

Ambience: Front patio looks a bit tired. Nice marble tables but cheesy garden furniture chairs.


Next time, LeColonial next door, been there 3X, it is great, very covid careful, nicely maintained place.

Very nice restaurant. Excellent Mediterranean cuisine. Service was somewhat bland, but not bad. Excellent choice for something different if you are tired of American, Italian and Oriental cuisine.

We loved it from the moment we arrived. Love that there’s a dress code. Keep it classy . Service was spot on. If I had to pick a negative it would be the potatoes. We expected baked w oil n lemon. They were instead crispy. I look forward to dinning w you again.

Not consistent in food quality. When they just opened it wad great , this time not even close . Cold and far from the experience we had in the past. It was a birthday for my husband and I mentioned it on n my reservation but they never did anything even to acknowledge it. Won’t be going back.

Had a great experience! Staff was exceptional as was the food. Best experience in fine dining. The Royal Dorade was a very good fish ESPECIALLY with the jalapeño cream sauce with crab meat!! If you want to start dining out again go to Ouzo. What a great experience and they have two patios .

Super lunch! Our first visit to this upbeat, airy and elegant, yet not pretentious, restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating and sliding glass windows that brought the outdoors in. Our server, Pete, was engaging, knowledgeable and fun. His glass of wine choices for us were perfect. We tried the three dips with pita and couldn’t decide which one we liked best! The Wagyu dolmades with their dipping sauce dotted with pistachios were excellent. The whole bronzino was perfectly cooked, tender and delicious. The traditional gyro was very good, but needed a bit more meat (our only complaint). Thank you for making my birthday celebration so special!
