Very good meal, split the ravioli dinner as an app. Prime rib no longer on the menu but my steak was perfect. The phyllo wrapped cheese cake was fantastic.

Solid once again. This time wife had the chicken Parmesan with roasted garlic potatoes (omg) and veg medley and I had the chicken curry. Both were excellent. We both started with the crab covered scallop. Also excellent. Highly recommend. Will definitely return.

They doubled almost tripled their prices for New Years, it is a shame when a restaurant does this as they should respect their customers. Had the spanakapita as an appetizer to start, one tiny, tiny little triangle, was very good mind you, but wow proportion....More
