Really nice, smallish Greek restaurant. We ordered up big and overdid it as they bring complimentary bread and dips.. can't complain about too much food though. Spanakopita was delicious, and the house specialty lamb shanks were falling off the bone just as they should be....More

Epsilon was completely fine - but the reviews suggest that it offers some of the best Greek food to be found anywhere - and that just is not the case. Food was average; ambience was fair; service was very attentive, however

So, I've been coming here since the '90s. The food is always fresh, interesting, and delicious! I remember when 'Mama' came from Greece and would make her special baklava. Oh my! I've never had better! You can't go wrong here if you like Greek cuisine.

Epsilon is okay for Greek food. Good selection and quality was ok. Not exceptional. Had much better Greek food at other places. Their website is much more stylish and elegant than the actual restaurant. Don't be deceived. Hummus was very watery and low on taste....More

Amazing service, great little place... food was good but didn't stand out. Big portions with bread served with a sort of dip. Would give a 4/5 if it wasn't on the pricier side.
