I am not a fan of Mediterranean food so I was hesitant to go to this restaurant. We also weren't so sure how the single plates of food would be as compared to a full entree. However they exceeded our expectations. My wife and I...More

Food is very good, very different & fun to share. They have a wide variety of small plate options so you can pick a few & share with your dining companions. I don't like Brussel spouts, but theirs are VERY good!

I called the restaurant, and they said no smoking in any indoor or outdoor dining areas. They did say there is a space next to the patio where people can smoke.
