Our server was friendly and was able to answer questions regarding the menu. The dancers were enthusiastic and sang happy birthday to my sister in law. The dancers even dance on the table. My favorite part was was throwing napkins.

Brought my kids, 9 and 11 with us. We ordered the hot and cold meze platters and the chicken kabob. It was plenty of variety and food for us. Oh yeah- my son ordered the octopus app too. Everything was fresh and the out door seating was great. We loved the experience and the tasty food. Went well with retsina wine!

At the beginning of my night wasn’t so pleasant when the hostess with brown curly hair didn’t want to switch my table. After talking to her multiple times and saying she would switch my table she end up not doing so as she promised. NSTEAD insisted on taking a walk-in of 4 to a nicer table rather than switching me a reservation of 4 to that nicer table. And I was stuck with a bad wobbly table. And thought it was professional to walk the walk in over there and look me in my eyes with a smirk on her face. Besides that the food was outstanding and my server was the best! Highly recommend for bdays and fun nights out!

Great fun, excellent service and decent food which would typically lead me to give a "5" rating. Shortly after sitting down, we were offered the (very expensive) $66 family style meal; moments later our group was offered a round of Greek shots; next came the (for fee) group picture; and finally the 19% (!!) pre-applied tip. The staff (particularly the server and the belly dancer) were great - clearly they're doing what they're told, but no one wants the hard up sell every 15 minutes.

Food and service was great. Noise level of music was almost unbearable. You struggle to make conversation with even the person sitting right next to you. They really would make it more enjoyable and garner return visits if the turned that music down. We will not go back due to that volume.

It’s a good place to visit for a lively atmosphere but skip for a holiday such as Valentines Day as they overbook. Had an 8:30 reservation for a month, only reservations I believe were allowed in and we were seated after 60 minutes at 9:30. Waited in a long line at least 50 people deep outside and it was a chilly day to check in and wait. Was about to leave and cut our losses but at this point everywhere is booked up for Valentines Day. However, once inside service was attentive and fast and food was excellent for the Valentine’s special.

Food and service were excellent. Not a fan of shared tables, dancing on tables or loud music. I realize that that is their style but it's not for me. Throwing handfuls of napkins in the air every few minutes, some landing in a glass of my $70/bottle wine, is not my thing and would probably send environmentalists into cardiac arrest. If you are looking for a loud belly dancing show with your meal, this is your place. We enjoyed all of the food, lamb shank in particular, and the appetizers were all excellent.

I did not like that the tables were shared with other guests. Would have preferred to have our own table. T

The service was very rushed. The initial waitress seemed very nice and patient but there was a gentleman server who seemed very overwhelmed and rushed us through the meal. Our children's meal came out long before ours which we did not ask for.

Most of the entertainment takes place inside. The dancer only came outside once and very briefly. I wish I had known that before I booked outdoor seating since we were there mainly to watch the belly dancing.

The hot appetizer platter was all deep fried foods and not very enjoyable. I ordered the chicken kabobs and my husband ordered the lamb kabobs and that was very good. The dessert wine and the baklava were delicious.
