Now that all tables are being used posy-COVID it is noisier. But I'm SO GLAD you have remained open.
We'll be back.

We’ve seen this restaurant for over 10 years and had never dined there. It was recommended on Open Table and we’re so glad we tried it. The food, service and atmosphere was nice, relaxing and enjoyable as we celebrated our daughters mid-twenties birthday!!

I was surprised how expensive it’s gotten. The salad that use to be $18 is now $21! That’s ridiculous for lunch! You have maybe just priced me out of returning.

It's not the same as I remember when I knew the owners of the Travis Walk restaurant.
Saturday's lunch was not as expected. The hostess appears indifferent and our waiter was very confused. He did not bring our appetizer until after bringing our lunch. Very disappointing.

Booked this restaurant for my wedding anniversary meal and I wasn't disappointed. Excellent choice of Greek food and it made it hard to chose. The service was excellent, after we finished our starter, we waited a whe until we got our mains. This was great for me as I don't like to feel I'm being rushed.
The food tasted good and you got plenty on your plate..
Will definitely be going back.

We ate outside and it was very noisy because there were lots of patrons on a lovely cool evening. I enjoyed my last meal here so much that I ordered the exact same thing - the salmon filet. I also substituted the roast potatoes for the couscous like last time. They are so delicious. I also tried a different dessert this time and loved it - the baklava ice team cake. They also had a robust excellent tasting decaf coffee.

The menu on website is different than menu handed to us at the brunch. It was suppose to be buffet but not, the waitress bring the selection from warmers not directly from the kitchen. Most of the entrees were cold and tasteless. The Moussaka was not in squares but mashed up and not recognizable. Advertised to have chef made omelets, French toast, eggs benedict, drunken mushrooms, red pasta, house made artichoke hummus- didn't have that at all. The grilled lamb souvlaki was cold, dry, and tasteless , the grilled chicken souvlakis was the same. Spanakopita came the first time cold, the next time it was good. Pineapple and chocolate cake was good. Website menu said tea and coffee were included and they were not. The price was suppose to be $30 but Ziziki raised it to $34. Not that expensive if the food is hot not dry and tasty. Need to let customers know it is not buffet and the increased price.

I would not reccomend for Mothers Day Brunch. Maybe regular Brunch runs smoother. I dont know, but I am in the Restaurant industry and I was not impressed. The food was good, but seemed to come to the table randomly. Everything else was so-so. Mimosas were served warm or room temp!

Great Mediterranean food with great service. We are long time patrons and this was our first time back since Covid restrictions have been eased. The restaurant looked newly painted and the outdoor seating was being used. It’s nice to know they are back in business (with openly spaced tables).

We have lamb souvlaki, salmon souvlaki, and Grecian Chicken - all were terrific and plenty of food. Starting with dips and warm pita was a good choice and reasonable, good options for wine. The service was very good, right pace and attention. only flaw was group with younger children were seated next to us - the children actually never stayed in their seats, knocking over chair, standing on chair and banging into our chairs.

We were frequent diners at the Lakeside on Preston and then the Star locations where we found the food and service to be outstanding. Covid impacted these spots so we didn’t dine Greek for a while. We drove down Preston to try this spot and found the food and service to be better than we remembered. We will be coming back quite often going forward. The food is excellently prepared and service staff is professional and friendly.

We love the food here. Very laid back and enjoyable evening. The restaurant was relatively quiet on this visit (our first since venturing back out after Covid vaccines) since most people were seated outside and they are still social distancing by blocking every other table inside. You can't go wrong with the menu. Everything is fresh and well prepared. One of our go to places for date night!

We went to Sunday brunch. The waitress did greet us (just asked what we wanted to drink), nor did she explain what the dishes were that she was serving, nor were all the items listed in the printed menu served. We’ve enjoyed dining here previously, but brunch did not live up to our expectations.
