Recently dined here, with a group, for lunch. Our waitress, Stephanie, was fantastic and the food was the same. Soup starters were fresh and yummy. An appetizer of their fried livers was huge and supplied the entire table and they were moist and delish. Various...More

Great food. Had the lamb chops and my wife had baked lamb. Both were terrific. We were one of only a few people there in a Wednesday night and the service was a little slow or I would have given it 5 stars

Stopped in before a hockey game and was surprised how quiet the restaurant was. The service was great, food was excellent and will be back soon.

Outside is non-discript and you might easily pass by. Don't. Inside is the warmth and ambiance of a traditional neighborhood Greek restaurant. The food, staff and wine are right out of the old country. Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly and helpful and the food...More
