We had reservations on a Friday and arrived early following a movie. It wasn't crowded and we were seated immediately. Had a couple of Zeos Dark beers that very tasty along with a soup and octopus tentacle appetizer. Fantastic, not chewy and great with the hummus and diced veggies. Very tender. Main meal included the Bronzini that was served whole and was tender, flaky and not dry. The Greek lasagna was OK, but there wasn't much meat and the noodles included macaroni in the layers. Very starch heavy but tasted good overall. You will be treated to bread wedges and our server, who may have also been the manager/owner (we did not ask) brought us a desert and shots at the end of the meal. This is very nice place to eat and easy to hold a personal conversation without feeling like you need to be very quiet. Service was fast and spot on. My wife asked for lemon for her fish and it was delivered in triple seconds later. We will go back to sample some of the other menu items.

The waitress was cleaning the table & droped a soiled fork on my husbands hat, picked it up, saying nothing & walked away. His hat had food on it from the fork. When I took it to her she said “I’ll clean it off”. Isaid to the owner who was sitting there how disappointing I was that she had originally not said a word. He said “ she was a good person & had a good heart”. That of course has nothing to do with it. She obviously should have apologized and taken the hat to clean it off. The owner considered himself right. We will not go back.

Trapezaria is one of our favorites. They have convenient, "FREE" parking in the rear. Their trio of dips is terrific. We shared a nice bottle of Greek wine. We teased them about having more raisins in their rice pudding dessert. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

The food is fantastic with enormous portions. Grilled octopus was the best I have ever had. The décor was pleasant and waitstaff were very attentive. But as the evening progressed, the decibel level became overwhelming to the point we couldn't hear each other across the table.

Authentic Greek food with all your favorites. You have to remember to save room for dessert because portion sizes are above average and it all tastes so good it is hard to have leftovers. The service is friendly and help you to speak the menu language.

With the wonderful Manny at the helm, a more memorable evening could not be had!

From the delicious dolomades to crisp Greek meatballs to the authentic salad with generous feta and olives, everything coming from the kitchen was carefully- even lovingly- prepared. The moussaka was just as great as usual in this family run restaurant. The retsina wine was unusually fruity and light and perfectly chilled as it should be.

And don’t forget the desserts. Luscious!!!

Lovely dinner - I got the Greek Margarita and the Vegetarian Dream as an entree, both were really delicious and flavorful. The service was great - our waiter was friendly and attentive, and two other higher level staff checked in on us over the course of our time there to make sure we had everything we needed. The dining area was appealingly decorated and surprisingly spacious (a lot of restaurants cramp tables together so that you barely have space between groups, but this restaurant had a very nice, more open layout that provided for a more intimate dining experience). All in all will be back, and highly recommend for people interested in trying traditional Greek and other Mediterranean dishes.

The setting is nice enough, and the service was pleasant, but the food was disappointing, to say the least. We shared several small plates, none of which was particularly tasty. For example, the plate of beets with goat cheese and walnuts was just that—some slices of beet sprinkled with walnuts and goat cheese. Nothing really tied it together or elevated it beyond its separate ingredients. In fairness, we didn’t order main dishes, and perhaps that’s where this kitchen shines. But I’ve had wonderful small plates at many other Greek restaurants, and I was expecting much better.

While the food was not inexpensive, it was delicious and the portions were sizable. The service was attentive even though we ate outside and were the only diners out there. Because we were outside, the noise level wasn’t really reflective of inside the restaurant. We would go again which is the real testament.

We went for Sunday brunch and cannot recommend this restaurant for brunch. We've enjoyed dinner there a few times so we had high expectations. The brunch is served buffet style with one table holding hot dishes, one with ONE salad and bowls of hummus and other spreads that were not labeled so we had no idea what they were. Also had no idea what all of the hot dishes were beyond say chicken or fish since none were labeled. There was an omelet "station" but the person making the omelets was hard to find. The other remaining table had one bowl of fruit and two small plates of baklava and another phyllo dessert. Because it was a large table, just those three serving dishes made it look like something was missing. Some of the food was good but it just wasn't what we were expecting and we were disappointed.

Food was pretty good. Service was slow. The place isn't laid out very well, as we were sat in the front corner of the restaurant away from the main floor. Felt like we paid a lot for the quality of food. The hummus tasted watered down (gross who does that).
