My daughter and I had a great outdoor adventure for lunch! We were snuggled in a small alcove on the sidewalk with our own little under table heater. The staff was checking on us constantly making sure we had what we needed, that our used plates were cleared and that we always had a mimosa in hand. The food was excellent... their usual crusty bread and hummus, grilled shrimp, and yummy lobster ravioli!
We had a great lunch before I have to send my daughter back to college.

Amazing experience!!! The food was outstanding and the service was superior. We really enjoyed our outdoor dining experience here and the heaters were very helpful! We were happy and felt very safe. We’ll definitely be back to outdoor dine and again when we can eat indoors 👌🏼

Came for outdoor dining - food was very good. Indoor dining looked beautiful, outdoor dining was less so - busy block with lots of trucks going by. Did not deter from the meal though!

Very nice however there was a baby crying in the center table and everybody in the restaurant was annoyed. The parents were doing nothing. While I know that’s not the restaurants fault I do believe that when you have a baby joining you should seat them somewhere away from everybody else in the center so that the baby disturbed everybody’s meal.And the restaurant does have a side area as well as an upstairs.

Food was very good. Music was mellow and low which made the noise level very low, so it was nice to be able to communicate with my date without screaming which I can’t stand.

They have the best cocktails I’ve had and they put an evil eye edible in your cocktail which is so cool. The service and ambiance was amazing. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend.

Food as usual - great. Greek Salad tomatoes were exceptional and Red Snapper was perfectly grilled and seasoned. Service was not good - no attention, had to call servers over every time we needed something - disappointed.

Had a late brunch of Eggs Florentine. The eggs were poached perfectly, the spinach sautéed just right, and the muffin was still crispy and soft. Well done!!!

Everything was great. We are outside so of course it was noisy as it's a busy street. The eggplant chips are outrageous and the greek salad dressing was the best I ever had.

We were the only ones at the restaurant at 11:30, so the first ones to place an order. But still had to wait 30 mins for 2 dishes: 2 omelettes. Sitting outside in the shade for 30 mins, it was chilly. As it is, you are on a street with lots of car traffic so the long wait was not pleasant.

So great first time dining here and would definitely dine again! Only complaint was the octopus app, it was overcooked and disappointing considered the sushi grade price but the other dishes (sea bass, lamb chops, and burger) were phenomenal! Baklava is also a must!

I felt comfortable that you follow covid-19 guidelines. Your opened windows provided the ventilation needed during these times. I understand your limited menu and hope that you will be able to resume your extensive dishes.

My mom and I wanted a delicious final meal before fasting for Yom Kippur and this meal did NOT disappoint. The food was delicious! We only ordered appetizers and they were great. We got the octopus, the shrimp saganaki, spinach pie, and the eggplant spread!

Always a pleasure to dine here - cocktails refressing / hummus excellent / grilled sea bass outstanding! The dividers for the tables were just not that secured - they need some weights at the foot of the table to keep them from falling to the customers.

Food was very good. Our table was right on the street , hence the ambience lower rating. But during this pandemic we were grateful to be out to dinner !
Service very good.
