We have talked about stopping here for years. Today we decided to give it a try. The only reason I'm upset is that we haven't tried it before. We love good Greek food and they have it perfected. Service was exceptional. Food was very fresh and hot. We will definitely be returning!

Traditional Greek appetizers like grape leaves and meat balls. Very nice attentive wait staff. During the week at dinner... More

The atmosphere can be loud at times, but the food will definitely curb your appetite. Really enjoy the lamb gyros. So delicious!
