I ordered takeout here while I was here for a weekend trip and it was awesome. Had the crab-stuffed tilapia with rice/veggies. It was so well seasoned and the portion was large. I would imagine that it would taste even better while dining in.

Had the Bleu Filet done medium served with red potatoes and garden vegetables. Ruby Port perfect after dinner drink. Fried green tomatoes just okay. Steak is out of this world. Excellent service!

We expected more from a higher-end restaurant. The pumpkin soup was ok, if a bit thick. The pasta primavera was extremely garlicky, and the steak came out cold. Our waitress was flustered, even only having a few tables to tend, and kept accusing the kitchen...More

This is the best nice steakhouse in Athens. The prime rib is always good as is the filet! They also have other options if steak is not your thing. Excellent drinks. Friendly staff
