Great food and service. All our choices were above the expectations and the mood of the place was very nice. I recommend for sure.

This place was incredible! We got the moussaka (authentic & delicious), and the lamb for our main courses. With an appetizer & a slice of goat cheese pistachio cheesecake, our bill was just under $100 pre-tip, but it was actually really worth it. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection!

Love coming back for the fish Plaki dishes. I recently had halibut and cod and both were delicious. Lunch and brunch are great. I like to get a Caesar Salad or the fantastic BOMB burger - best in town. Come to think, the calamari is also terrific.

Cocktails were delicious and the food was good (recommend the salmon and the paella). They charge for bread service (meaning no free bread at the table) but it was only $3 so nothing too crazy. All in all, would definitely go back.

Somewhat upscale but still a place you can get away with wearing shorts and a collared shirt. Very nice ambience and excellent cuisine. The paella was great. A bit on the pricey side...but isn't everything these days?

The food was really amazing and the staff was very attentive. The beet salad was very bright and fresh and beautifully prepared. For an entree I had the grilled pork chop that was outstanding! The fig compote on top was so tasty. The root vegetables were nice and toasty and the blue cheese risotto added a nice interest. The moussaka was very tasty. A great evening!

Good food, creative dishes. Tried the Lamb Bolognese $25 and Grilled Octopus. $16 Note that the prices are different and the menu much shorter than shown here. Service was okay but not overly friendly, so we were a bit disappointed based on the other reviews. Good place for fine dining.

Beautifully and consistently fantastic. Partner and I love this place. Family owned and operated, you are in their “home”. Food is fantastic. Service is unreal. That lamb burger is ridiculously amazing. Wow!

Delicious food and kind staff. There is a cute family history behind this restaurant- be sure to ask your waiter.I ordered the mussels as an appetizer. They were so good that I ordered them again for my entree! Wonderful food. Highly recommended.

Stopped in here on a road trip based on Google reviews and we were thrilled with the food. Excellent Mediterranean fare, fast and efficient service, and reasonable prices. I would stop again any time and if I was local it would be a go to spot.

Went here for lunch. Tried a bunch of hummus - original is the best IMO. The calamari was tender and delicious - definitely recommend this app. I ordered the lamb burger as an entree - it was good, but not great. The server we had was absolutely amazing, so +1 star for his charming personality!
