Our outdoor table for 10 was beautiful and was set up and ready when we arrived (we had called ahead). Our server was very helpful, professional, etc. The bathroom was amazing. The food was delicious. A memorable evening. Would definitely return.

Went here Saturday night. This is good comfort food. Not too fancy. Not high end. Casual place with good food and wine. I had Greek salad which was great and the Gyros platter. Great combo. Come here for a moderately priced very good tasting meal.
