As a lover of Greek food I anticipated a wonderful meal. The menu is extensive and the servers very good and the food average. I should return for another tasting in the near future and look forward to a more tasty meal.

We were there for dinner with another couple on a Saturday evening. It wasn't too crowded; we were able to enjoy a table outside, which was very pleasant until they cranked up the volume of the music. It was difficult to hear a conversation. I...More
