We visited before theater with reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. The place could use some work. The decor was too plain. Who cares? We are there for the food! The octopus as appetizer was very tender and delicious even though there was 1...More

Recently met some friends here for dinner. If you are looking for traditional Greek food, this place has a menu that will satisfy every Greek craving. The meal was wonderful. The staff was attentive.

Stumbled across this lovely little Greek restaurant on route to Times Square, the food is amazing, and reasonably priced, the staff are really friendly and very helpful.

The food was good and freshly prepared, The service was good and the prices are reasonable for NYC. It is located on a very busy street, but it deserves a visit.

Very disappointing to say the least! Our waitress was very inattentive, concentrating on chatting with her colleague, as opposed to paying attention to our table. The food was okay but nothing to brag about. Will definitely NOT return!

This is a large, vibrant upscale Greek restaurant. Although large, the tables are well spaced so one does not feel crowded. It is perfect for lunch and especially for a pre-theater dinner. The service crew is friendly and professional. The decor is pleasant. The menu...More
