Walking into the historic building and dining area was refreshing itself as compared to the busy downtown streets ... While the dining room is formal it is considerably more comfortable than ostentatious ... The menu was delightful to peruse while sipping some greek wine ... and without prompting, since we admitted knowing little about Greek wines, we were offered an... More

I went here on a Saturday night with colleagues since we were all in town for a conference. We had a tiny wait at the bar but otherwise the food was as good as we expected. That is, except for the cheese stuffed calamari. I would eat here again.

We had such a great meal here last Friday night. We were scheduled to go to a play across the street at the Academy of Music and opted for convenience. The ambiance is lovely - very warm, inviting, comfortable. Our server very kindly pointed out the theater menu. This option is less expensive than ordering from the regular menu. It... More

Enjoyed again this resaurant. The service and food were the best. Their deep fried eggplant appetizer was to die for. Will be back for sure!

We came as a large group to celebrate my birthday. We ate in the private room downstairs- the ambiance was amazing. Our service was spot on and the food was delicious. We started with calamari which was very tender, spanakopita and the Estia chips. I was so glad the server showed us the market fish samples- seeing the size of... More

They will bring the flaming salt covered fish to your table to see but will return with just the filet plated and delectable. Bustling space with service that could be slightly more attentive. High price point but very tasty. Don't think "Greek" but rather seafood and your expectations will be met or surpassed.

The place has a good ambience. The usher and the staff seemed extremely disinterested in speaking to us and seating us (we had reservations). After that odd interaction, we were finally seated. The overall ambience is nice. Our server was good. The menu was limited. If you are a vegetarian, go somewhere else - nothing on the menu. The food... More

Couldn't get in via Open Table, but they had an opening before we went to the Academy of Music. Food was great, and service was pretty good, but the server forgot to get my girlfriend a dip that she had asked for
