Penelope is evidently popular with the pre-theatre crowd, who were leaving en masse as we entered, having just watched the Blue Jays demolish the KC Royals. As a result the restaurant was nearly deserted and very quiet as we enjoyed our meal. All three of...More

This is a lovely place for classic Greek food in an classy dining room with white tablecloths, pleasant staff and delicious food that are in huge portions. It’s not the cheapest but worth the money. I’d suggest you make reservations.
