Only positive thing I can say is there a huge wine list to choose from. Service was terrible and food was definitely not worth the price of $30 entree.

The place itself - decor, color, furniture - is very reminiscent of Greece. The menu selection is mouth-watering and the food tastes good. The service was a bit slow and could be improved. I hope Elia stays here for good.

Valet parking. Nicely redone, appearing to be set outside due to the umbrellas and plants. Terrible head banging music. is this not a restaurant, or do they want to present your dining experience as a club?? Nice waiter. I wanted a Greek wine which is...More
