They had excellent fresh grilled fish and the horiatiki was wonderful. Greek coffee was perfectly strong and smooth. Attentive, generous service. Definitely going back.

Service was surprisingly slow tonight. We’ve eaten here many times and it was never like this. We arrived at 5:30 and were seated immediately and ordered quickly. It was over an hour before our entrees came out. The food was excellent as it always is.

We especially enjoyed the octopus but all the food was great. The smaller room was perfect so we could really talk and visit with our family. Very nice server. Our reservation wasn’t ready on our arrival but it was ok. The food here never disappoints.

Our server was Anna and she was knowledgeable and personable. We had a reasonably priced bottle of Greek wine, and taramasalada and grilled shrimp appetizers that were both yummy. We had branzino and gigantes brand and roasted potatoes. The dessert was the first one listed on the menu.. a tall custard pie that was delicious! All in all, a terrific experience.

Lots to select from the extensive menu. Warm pita accompanied a large fresh salad, whole fish expertly boned and served with delicious roasted potatoes. No room for dessert except for a Greek coffee.

We arrived at 5 so had a quiet atmosphere. As the restaurant filled up it became noisier and noisier as most NY restaurants do. My lamb was great.

Nice place, reasonable prices, mediocre food. The taramasalata tasted more of milk-soaked bread than it did of carp roe, and the lemon chicken soup was overly floured, and uncontaminated by chicken. The grilled marinated octopus was over cooked and dry. Service was fine and the ambiance OK, but I won’t be going back.

The meals were big but they weren’t all nice. Not sure if the chef is Greek as the meals didn’t taste like they were cooked authentically. The avgolemono soup which should be chicken, rice, egg and lemon soup was just s a chicken soup. The lamb and beef gyros tasted Ike reconstituted meat shaved. Not even sure what that was. Told waiter that the meat is not what we expected and al he could do was laugh at us. On a positive note, the grilled calamari was beautiful and the lamb shank youvetsi was very nice and tender too.

The restaurant is comfortable and unpretentious with very nice staff and perfect martinis. I had the vegetarian Moussaka and it was delicious. Highly recommend for a very good neighborhood spot. I’ve been going here for years and have never been disappointed.

We’ve been many times. Everything is always delicious! Love their tzatziki, saganaki, salads, grilled chicken and fish! Greek fries and lemon potatoes are wonderful too. While they don’t make the pita they serve, I can’t find pita like that in stores. So good. Very busy place- the seating around the perimeter is quieter than in the main room, but only accommodates parties or 2 or 4.

Amazing food, but beware that you may have to wait for a table even with reservations. We both had the Gyro Platter which we had served with Orzo and Greek Salad. It was FANTASTIC!

Worth the wait!

My only complaint about this place, and I do come here regularly, is when it’s busy: it’s usually a mess. When it’s not packed, arrive is strong and attentive, but when it’s full, there’s a loss of cohesion in the staff and they get sloppy, bump into each other, and overall create a hyper vibe. Everyone needs to relax. The busting staff doesn’t handle bringing water and the basics well. I do think this place is a gem and has great food at affordable prices, but when i see it’s busy, I’ll cancel from now on because this is a repeat situation, more than a few time, it it ruins the vibe for me.

Quaint little place. Not too small. Waitstaff was great. Didn't love the hummus - seemed bland. Tried the moussaka and also thought it was bland. Also tried the kebab and it was overcooked and tough. The value was good but the delivery today was not as what we had hoped.

Traditional Greek Cusine. Service was great, food was good and portions were generous. The fish was fresh and nicely cooked. Ambiance was more of a local neighborhood restaurant versus fancy, but large space. Would definitely return.

The food and service were amazing. We brought out yiayia here for dinner and the waitstaff were very friendly and talked to us in English and Greek. They made excellent recommendations and brought us several plates of pita bread. The Octopus was a large portion for an appetizer and was delicious! We’ll definitely be back.
