Meat overcook for 3 of the 4 of us. Started vacuuming to say they were closing before we were even offered coffee or dessert. Waitress wasn’t attentive. We had to chase after her

This is our go-to restaurant for special events or just a night out. The food is excellent, consistent, healthy and we've always had a good meal. The icing on the cake is the outdoor balcony dining with accent lighting that makes the world disappear. Say hi to the owner Alex and the waiter Chris who both are so pleasant and helpful. Go to Thavma and enjoy.

Make sure that everything that they as
part of your dessert. Ours was supposed to come with biscotti and then showed up without. They said they were out and didn’t subtract anything off the cost or substituted
anything else. Very disappointing for an otherwise nice meal.
May not go back.

I first tried the food at Thavma at a friend’s house who had the food catered by them. It was delicious so I decided to dine at the restaurant for my birthday. It was fantastic! The service, excellent! I will definitely dine there again.

We waited for 25 minutes to be served. After 15 minutes waiting we asked the bus boy for the server, nothing happened. We asked the hostess who seated us why there’s nobody taking our orders and thats the only time a server came to us. We were here before and we loved it that’s why we came back but today was terrible. Severs were just passing by and looking at us . Stay away, there are other Greek restaurants that is better.

Jonrey, Sorry for this experience. We saw very high volume this past weekend with nice weather, and we have several new less experienced servers and there was confusion on the table assignments. As from your other visit you know this is not indicative of the business we run and accept our apologies. We're working through many challenges presently in the restaurant/hospitality industry, but we'll get through it. Hope to you see again.

The server we had was lovely but the food and experience was not. The appetizers were over salted and overly sweet. The main courses were under/over done. We had a steak that had raw parts within it and chicken that was dry and terribly over cooked. The staff started vacuuming while we were eating and it was 30 min before closing. Lastly this was a really expensive meal. I wound not recommend.

Our Server was nice but seemed to be ultra busy with other tasks. The server at the table next to us seemed quite a bit more jovial. No offense our server was good but not a lot of yucks there.

Great food and very attentive waiter. We ate outdoors. They have a very nice set-up on the balcony for outdoor dining, but even with umbrellas, the sun made it uncomfortable at times.

Great, fresh food and quick service! We sat outside and it was a great view! Service was fast too! Only thing is that once the sun starts to set, the umbrellas don’t offer much shade so plan ahead.
