Returned to Christina's this week and was disappointed in everything but the food itself. I am afraid that Christina's is in a downward spiral. 1) Although it was a Friday night, there was no need for a reservation - plenty of tables available. 2) Until...More

The Greek dishes were well made and presented. Prices for the main entrees are in the $15-$20 range. Service was good, and the owner was very friendly. We will definitely return. The only issue was it was cold in the restaurant (a cold day outside),...More

This place is fairly new, and was recommended by my hairdresser. Christina was there, going around to all the tables, and so was her warm, friendly family. I am always looking for a sliced lamb pita sandwich with tsatsiki, and this was one of the...More
