No Air conditioning in the restaurant. It was too hot for comfortable dining.

Greek kitchen never disappoints. The food is always delicious. The service is always quick and friendly. The feta sousami appetizer is our favorite and the mixed grill. Great desserts and perfect cappuccino. Their new outdoor seating is beautiful and peaceful.

We ate outside - they have two sheds: one on 10th Ave. and one on 58th St. The service was outstanding, our waitress a delight.
The food was excellent and the portions - even desserts - were ample.
There was a faint sewage odor - we wondered if it might be from moisture accumulating under the wooden platform which makes the shed level with the sidewalk. And as the night wore on there were more emergency vehicles arriving at Mt. Sinai West, across the street.

I have to admit that I love Greek food but haven’t find anything exciting in NYC at least post pandemic. The place is good but nothing special. My Greek soup came in a creamy form. Never seeing it like that before. Nothing special very little ingredients. Meatballs were really good. Greek fries were saggy, both orders snd the octopus was chewy. The baklava was very good snd a generous portion and the Greek coffee was amazing
I’ll give it a second chance

Wonderful, neighborhood restaurant. Food is fresh, well-prepared and delicious. This restaurant never disappoints and the only one I order in from. The calming blue & white decor provides a perfect ambience for a lovely meal where you can easily talk and hear one another. Sparse tables inside still honor distancing from other guests. Prices are excellent.

We think they didn’t expect too many customers yesterday, my white wine was warm, my lamb chops was hard to o eat, wrong knife. The waitress and bus boy were very nice and tried their best.

Always been one of my favorite places to go for a stress free dining experience. It’s comfortable, we are outside on a beautiful day, the service was great, food was excellent and the prices are, for this rip off area, excellent. I highly recommend.

Delicious food and great selection of Greek wines, reasonable priced. We loved the whole grilled fish options and the gigantes were perfection. Also enjoyed a Greek salad, saganaki, and the Greek fries.

The service was a little slow but the wait staff was charming and we loved the experience.

Great value and a very friendly staff! Their outdoor dining setup was perfect, the food far exceeded expectations. Only complaint is they're not currently offering their weekend brunch menu!

La comida bien, correcta cantidad calidad y precio. Ahora bien que te quieran cobrar 20% de propina porque les da la gana... así sin preguntar..... es un ABUSO con todas la letras y mayúsculas.
Les pedimos explicaciones y nos dicen que estamos en Mamhattan, que hay que pagar propina. Pero la decisión del porcentaje o cuantía de la propina lo decide el cliente.
Lo siento pero no!!!!

Disappointing. Appetizer was brought together with the main course.
Moussaka was tasteless.

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.

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.
