Don't waste your time on below average food with rude service and staff hanging out instead of working.

Really good Greek food! Grilled octopus is fantastic. Service was excellent. Ferry to the Westin drops you off right in front.

Service was great! The Veggie wrap was huge and tasty with some crinkled fries. The bread was fresh. The single Greek salad was surprisingly basic. A small bowl of Iceberg lettuce with feta cheese sprinkled over it, 2 Greek olives, a quartered tomato with creamy...More
