    A 3 hour meal. Wait staff was completely stressed and disorganized! No salad for over an hour. We had a 6:30 reservation and we left the restaurant at 9:15. Meal came at 8:15 and it was cold…… will not return!!!! No one ever came to collect salad plates when we were done. Food was poor!!!! We had to flag down the waitress for salt and pepper, and drinks!!!! Poor dining experience……. And we were taking out a friend we haven’t seen for 3 years!! Luckily we had a lot to talk about!! No one at the table was happy with their food! Ug

    Great food and menu in a beautiful setting. Service excellent. Our waitress, Irene, was extremely attentive and accommodating. We initially sat close to what became a larger and noisy group and upon request, she got us a very quiet spot. All waitstaff friendly. Food outstanding with great choices-very fresh. Highly recommend.

    This turned out to be a nice meal. Hadn’t been here in a while. Two people got the branzino. One got the pork special stuffed with prosciutto and feta and I got the seafood Pescatore. For apps we got the spanakopita and the saganaki cheese. One horiatiko salad. Our server was David who was great. Attentive without being overbearing. All entrees were enjoyed. My Pescatore had a good bit of seafood in it and the scampi sauce was good. I thought the spanakopita was very good. Overall a very good meal and I would go back

    It’s was extremely busy, so I’m glad that I made a reservation. I put on my reservation that I wanted outside however, that was all full. We did not receive our bread until after we finished our meal. I also had to ask for it. Overall, I enjoyed the food.

    Our birthday dinner was fantastic. The waiter Vinnie was friendly and professional. He was very attentive making sure we were happy with our food and drinks. The food was delicious, we had the surf and turf. Generous portions were served and the filet was cooked exactly as I asked. We will definitely come back. Can't wait to try the other entrees.
