The food was delicious. Some of the choices offered were delightfully different. The ambiance was elegant. Enjoyed the view of the wine cellar through the glass floor as we walked to our table. Our server Max took excellent care of us. He checked on every request and happily obliged. It was a delightful dining experience and look forward to returning.

Our table was ready as soon as we arrived. Our waiter, Max, was very polite and friendly, but did not interfere with our family time. The food was delicious, and everyone in our party enjoyed his or her dinner. The restaurant filled up quickly, but it didn't seem to be at all noisy. I am glad that my first experience... More

Hadn't been to this restaurant in a long time. Sorry it took so long to return. Dinner was delicious. Had the seafood pasta and thoroughly enjoyed it. Husband had shrimp and scallops. Service was excellent and atmosphere was good. Will return for Greek night

This is an excellent place for a special occasion, or just a nice romantic dinner for two. The food is priced in the upper range but it is certainly worth it. Dishes here are prepared and presented well. They taste great too. Dessert is a must here, it was exceptional. The waiters and waitresses were all very friendly, quick, and... More

We had dinner here. As a couple we both walked away disappointed. Small portions. Slow service. Pricey menu. Tasteless food

Came in for dinner with a party of nine, were seated in a private dining area away from the hustle of the main room. The food was amazing, I got the chicken souvlaki dish and it was to die for! Juicy and tender, absolutely phenomenal! The appetizers were beyond compare, I highly recommend trying all of the dips each one... More

Stored in during a snow storm without a reservation. They seated us right away and were very friendly. We wanted something light, so we just had appetizers. The octopus was AMAZING! lamb meatballs, rola and zucchini chips were great. Will absolutely be back for a full dinner soon!

We ordered take out, and there was a big bug cooked between the chicken I ordered and the melted cheese on top. Thankfully, it was so big, I found it before I ate it. But when I called to tell them about it, they barely apologized, and offered me nothing to make up for it. I felt like was being... More
