This is my go to restaurant when I need my fix of excellent Greek food. There is something for everyone on the menu--but for the entree, you have to order the lamb--which is the best I have ever had in this country. The staff is...More

Most reviews read before going were favorable but we were not overly impressed. With that said we said we would give it one more try before returning to our favorite Greek restaurant. We started with dolmades and saganaki. The dolmades were served cold which meant...More

I always enjoyed Avli's food, but their new menu takes the place to a new level. I want to get the word out that the new menu is very vegan and vegetarian friendly. Same great food, but many new, attractive options. The patio is great...More

We always get the tarmasalata. My favorite place to get it. We each got something a different this time. My beet salad with grilled chicken was delicious as was the stuffed eggplant the Mrs. had. Service excellent as usual.
