Visited here for a second time in six months. Even with an 8 pm reservation on a Friday, there were quite a few toddlers there. A little noisy at first but thinned out. Cocktails were well made and good. Dolmades we're good. My gyro platter was great. My friends had lamb souvlaki that they thought was a little tough. Hefty... More

This is good greek food in large portions. The gyro meat is very good as are the fires. It also has traditional plates and appetizers. On weekneds ther is belly dancing and lots of fun. Try the fried cheese.

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 flagged down who appeared to be the manager and he turned the volume down slightly.... More

The service was great, it was a Thursday evening and the place was relatively empty. I ordered the Opa cheese as an appetizer which is fantastic, highly recommend. Then and entree of the Chicken ka-bobs. The food itself was quite good, but the prices are certainly not worth the quality or quantity. I have wanted to dine here for some... More

This is truly authentic Greek Food at its best. While the location can be difficult to get to they do a really good job of staying on top of their service and food. I've celebrated graduations and birthdays here and let me tell you, this group knows how to throw a party. They have a menu with an array of... More

We were only in town for a quick business session and wanted something different. This place doesn't look like much from the outside and is in a very eclectic mix of a neighborhood but we like Greek and thought we would give it a go.... Oh My Gosh!!! The flavors and quality of food we were served was enough to... More

I got the feeling that they wanted to rush us throughout entire meal. The food was average, at best, and the prices were high. I can do better than this.

My boyfriend and I came here in February of 2015! We had driven in from Texas for an audition! We had a celebratory dinner later that night and could not have had a better time! The food is stellar and you felt like a regular from the second you step inside and are greeted with smiles and an exhilarating "OPA!"... More

We celebrated a birthday there. Between the abundant and tasty food, the bellydancing, the manager checking on us, and the tasty sangria, we felt like we were well taken care of. Food was just a bit salty.
