We had an amazing experience for dinner here. From the ambience to our attentive server, from the tasty wine to the impeccable food, the entire evening was more than we could have hoped for! We started with the octopus, calamari, lamb kefte, and crab soup. For dinner, I had the lamb loin (which was cooked to perfection), and my husband had the scallop special. Not photographed, our friends had the steak frites, and the red snapper (the fish of the day). To top off our evening, we followed dinner up with the goat cheese and honey cheesecake. We cannot praise this restaurant enough!!

The mains were wonderful, well seasoned and cooked wonderfully. I would not get the calamari again as it lacked flavor. The service was fine as well.

Our waiter was professional and the food was delicious. I got the Lamb Chops with the bleu cheese risotto with the sauteed broccolini. You will not regret visiting and dining here.

Rare 5 star from the wifey…she had the salmon, perfectly crusted and super tasty. Just the right temperature…waiter was phenom and prompt. I had the lamb burger….I loved the goat cheese on it…fries were hot and perfectly flavored. This was an awesome meal…did not have a reservation, so we had a table right near the kitchen area. Recommend calling ahead for a table.

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!
