Fairly intimate but enough elbow room. Varied menu and range of prices. Business associate from out of town and most impressed.

Great selections. Great staff. Great times. Once a year or Greek night is fun. Food, music, and plate smashing. Opa!

I went for lunch and would like to go again for dinner. I hear from friends this is a great place. Will review again after I have dinner. My husband was disappointed because they were out of the salmon burger.

Subtle, authentic and exceptionally prepared menu in a quaint and unassuming atmosphere. I think we've found our next favorite restaurant. The appetizers were all great and the grilled pompano was the best I've ever had... no small feat. The prices are very reasonable for the...More
