    Great food and service. Bronzino, bifteki, and artichoke are the best.

    We made a reservation for 5 PM but they did not hold/reserve a table for us. The place is small and they did the best they could, but there is really only one large table. It was a disappointing since we were in time and made the reservation far in advance online and even called the restaurant to make sure they had our reservation. The table service and food were good.

    Loud and freezing in the restaurant. Food was not so good. My dish was very oily and butter which was the only flavors I could taste in the pasta and the shrimp dish. My dining companions stated something similar but some of their dishes tasted better than my dish. Service was good when you could get the server to come to the table.

    This little restaurant is a gem. We were there for lunch during Restaurant Week and had the recommended 4-course meal. The portions were huge and had plenty leftover for that evening’s dinner. I highly recommend the Bronzino. Delicious. The service was excellent. The staff were very attentive and quick to remove used, empty dishes. Glad we made the trip from Maryland to enjoy a great meal.

    A quintessential neighborhood restaurant with very friendly staff who are eager to please. Menu is not extensive but varied enough to suit most palates. relatively quiet dining space that is nicely appointed and unassuming. Prices are reasonable. Vegetables were seriously overcooked while the "protein" content of the meals we ordered was nicely rendered. Word to the wise -- a 20% gratuity is added to the bill.

    Lovely gem of a restaurant! Our food was delicious. I took a star off just because we had a pretty long wait between appetizers and entrees. It seemed like they were handling a lot of carry out orders in addition to dine-in. But we’ll be back!

    Vasos was very busy the night we were there. The noise level was extremely high. When I ordered, I said shrimp kabob. The waiter said, what? (He couldn’t hear either!). I repeated it. When the meals came, he gave me the chicken special. I told him I ordered shrimp kabobs and he said we don’t even offer that. So, he didn’t listen well or he couldn’t hear me!!🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️. My friend had the mousakka and he said it was dry. The two Greek salads were good. I won’t go again when it is that busy.

    It’s been a while since we ate here. Both the kitchen and the service have gone downhill. The chicken souvlaki was more boiled than broiled. The oil used for the calamari was old and dated leaving a burned taste. The server had to be reminded to bring a side salad. We requested separate bills for two couples - didn’t happen. Not worth the time or money.

    Inside was a bit noisy and i am sensitive to that. Day was really nice so sitting outside was Great. Food was good but not great. I had Vasos’s Greek shrimp - better than good. No salt or pepper, i would have liked that for the olive oil for the bread. Service was average. The specialty desert and the baklava really were above average. Wine was mediocre and in my view, the house wines were overpriced as $10 per glass Overall a very good dining experience for our 55th wedding anniversary - a fact that Open Table did not share with them as none says happy anniversary. Above average and we will go there again someday,

    Food was delicious! It’s a good mix of Greek and Italian food so there is something for everyone. Service could have been a little better, it was like they were down a server. The hostess warned us that our server just took a bunch of tables so we would have to wait a bit which was fine but she could have gotten us water or taken our drink order while we waited. Overall it’s definitely a neighborhood gem and we will be back

    The waiter seemed preoccupied with something else. Took forever and finally I went up to the bar to pay the check. Also it was my son’s birthday. I dont know why you asked if my reservation was for a special occasion. they did nothing “special “ at all. Not even a happy birthday wish!
