Not only was booking the reservation incredibly easy for a first time OpenTable user, but the dining experience was highly enjoyable too. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the restaurant offers a complimentary appetizer for anyone who books a reservation. Service was very quick and helpful, while food was great. Chicken Orzo soup in particular was outstanding! Spanakopita appetizer was delicious, but portion was a little small - even for two people to share. Overall, both entrees were great and I would definitely go back soon!

This is a convenient location at intersection of I-95/I-91. We opted for the Greek dishes. Both the chicken and beef gyros were tasty. The french fries were absolutely out of this world. Crispy and crunchy. Service was a little slow but we didn't mind as this was a nice break from driving. Because we made an online reservation, our table was covered with a table cloth. Nice touch.

Much better than I had expected. Essentially a diner and very spartan in decor; but... the kitchen nevertheless delivered and the service was just great! Good location for going to Long Warf theater and the other (oftern crowed restaurant at Long Warf wouldn't take a reservation for two - the Olive did, which was very important as our timing was tight that evening. We wanted Greek and we got Greek: my wife whent for the lambchomps - done just the way she wanted and with a superb, deep sauce and incredibly delicious, real mashed potatoes. I opted for the chicken with the traditional egg-lemon sauce. with a well-seasoned orzo. Both included a Greek salad. The finale was pistachio gelato (fantastic!) over baklavah. We will return.
