    This was our first visit to the Uptown location. Although we have been fans of Keeses original location in LBTS, we were pleasantly surprised to encounter a whole new vibe. Uptown is a good way to describe the feel. From the moment we walked in we were surrounded with simple elegance. The waitress was attentive, and the food was simply delicious!!! The ambiance was relaxing and fun. The owner, Denisse, even remembered our favorite dish from the other location. That is being a great neighbor! I highly recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors alike!

    First time trying this restaurant and the food was outstanding. The Saganaki was incredible as was the dip trio for appetizers. The Moussaka and the lamb shank were delicious. The grilled snapper was a great healthy option and very fresh and tasty. Looking forward to going back.

    Wow, everything we had from the salad , which they split. To The ambience and service . Outside seating. Bar For about 6-8 seats . First you get like a relish dish but not. It had chick peaS thin slices of red onion , celery plus much more. Plus pita bread warm. It was so very fresh , It was a Party in my Mouth . We then ordered the tzatziki and a eggplant I don’t now and it came with pita bread again so tasty We had dish that was for two. Called Pietalli Krearikon , it had 2 lamb chops, a hugh chicken kebab and a nice steak . Very good will be back . Thank you Denise. Oh they did close the on that’s been there for over 20+ years on Ocean Dr.

    Food is very good!! Unfortunately, the evening we were there we had a reservation for 16. There was a bit of confusion with the reservation and restaurant was not prepared for us. As we were waiting another large party arrived without a reservation. They were seated before our party. Once we settled into our table we realized there was only 1 server. There was long wait times between ordering, drink arrival, food arrival and receiving the check. In all fairness, the single server did her best and kitchen did not disappoint.

    We stuck with the basics on this first visit, sharing traditional Greek spreads and pita as an appetizer and each ordering a serving of mousaka. Everything was well-presented, flavorful and plentiful. The service was superb in this caring family owner and operated little gem - we will be back!

    We went for Valentine’s Day. Only one person was working to take orders and bartend. He had an assistant who filled water etc. The restaurant was full and clearly understaffed.

    Got there before my reservation sat down, ordered wine, it sat on the bar about 10 minutes until my husband went and got it and served us. Manager/ waiter guy never mentioned it. We then ordered food, 35 minutes go by and we see nothing . We ask him he says, I don’t know ? He then brings out food, it’s not what I ordered, it was chicken, I ordered moussaka . He says, do you like this? I said no I want moussaka. He gets mad and says, fine I won’t force you to eat it! My husband stands up at this point, pays for the wine and we left after our 45 minutes of sitting . We went to Kaizen like we should of done in the first place . We have had takeout from the original keece for years but this new place needs help . We definitely won’t be back.

    Food was very good, and there was only 1 gentleman working all of the tables as they were short handed like so many others. He was calm and gracious. He never complained about his work load and made pleasant conversation. Sure , the service could have been faster, but it gave us time to enjoy our food and visit with each other. It would have been so easy to get angry with the slow service and walk away, but a little compassion for those working in hospitality goes a long way. We got to know him ( partner/owner) and heard his story which made us appreciate the evening even more. I would rate it a home run1

    Food was very good. Felt sorry for the waiter who seemed to be working by himself. He was taking orders, serving food and busing tables.

    Food was all very tasty. Really enjoyed the fileted Branzino fish and the others enjoyed their shrimp with orzo and salmon with lemon rice. The bread brought to the table was nothing special. The dessert pastry philo filled with sweet cheese was the best dessert ever, and enough to share! Very authentic and home made tasting meal! I highly recommend it.

    The day we went there (for my birthday) was just one waitress for the whole restaurant and let me tell you she did a good job and really friendly, the issue was the food that was tasteless, late and our drinks never came so we end asking for the bill and with no wish to return. I placed a google review stating that this is my experience and might be different from someone else, the owner instead of apologizing stated she was understaff due to covid hardships and I get it but for the very same reason she should try to gain clients , at least if you Leave me without drinks and realize that send a little ouzo or small candy and apologize for leaving me waiting more than an hour , that is professionalism. Never ever going back. You can found better authentic greek food elsewhere.

    The appetizers were good. The whole pompano was grilled and tasty. The lamb chops were terribly butchered. I’m sorry to say I would not recommend ordering them
