The menu will surprise you with a variety of Mediterranean dishes. Not bad. However, paper napkins, no tablecloth, wine list or beer, doesn't set right for me. No vibe that I look for when I'm out eating.

Real effort put into the food and service to ensure customer satisfaction. Unique twists on many of the entrees make this interesting while keeping it all in very good taste. I had dinner there and really enjoyed it. Did not get a chance to try...More

After a long day of driving, I found this spot near my cheap and easy hotel, and even though I stumbled in just minutes before closing, I was served with class and quickness. The servers had very few tables that had customers, and I am...More
