Food was amazing. It took about 15 minutes for a waitress to come to our table when we first sat and the restaurant was empty when we first got there. After this service was pretty good.
Portions and food quality are generous for the price.

The food was great, and there were options for varied diets. There was a separate section on the menu for vegetarian entrees, which had a fairly decent number of selections on it. Our server was warm . She was new, and when she didn't know an answer, quickly found out the answer from someone else.

Very friendly waiter. Nice atmosphere. My red snapper was ok. If not for the potatoes it would have been bland.

Had a reservation for 2 and the only open table was right next to the entrance/register so there was a lot of foot traffic and cold breezes whenever the door opened

The food was very good but the service was a little slow. Nice ambience but the menu could use a few more options. While the food pricing was reasonable the salads were a bit high. Overall we'd go back.

I would only recommend to a neighborhood person. It's just adequate; nothing outstanding. IN other words, it's not a destination place.

Pleasantly surprised for a New Year's Eve that we could order off the regular menu even though they had several excellent selections on the specials menu. We didn't feel overly rushed even though there was a steady stream of diners coming in and out. Our server was extremely pleasant and helpful with recommendations when I asked her. We hadn't been there in quite some time but will definitely go back soon.

Our second time here. Incredible food, service is outstanding and atmosphere is welcoming. The oil for the bread is the best anywhere. Greek ingredients give it a special flavor. Food is excellent from lamb chops to grilled prawns.

We had lunch here last Spring and had been meaning to return to try out dinner; we were not disappointed. Mussels, Feta in pastry cherry sauce for appetizers; Swordfish, Spicy Lentils w Orzo for main; and Orange cake, yogurt for dessert - all just great.

Our server, Maggie, was prompt and attentive and the Hostess and Chef were always around checking on everything and checking in with everybody.

This place is 1/2 hour from our house but we will be back - I don’t know of any better Greek restaurant within 50 miles of us (Far Hills) that’s nearly as good.

Metuchen can be a challenge for parking but once I got my bearings that got sorted out too.

Mos Def worth a try!

The grilled octopus appetizer and the goat cheese and fig flatbread were outstanding. Our service was very good and the entrees were enjoyed by all, with one exception. My friend thought her scallops were a little over cooked and tough. I will definitely revisit and try more of the menu. I really enjoyed my whole grilled fish!

The food was good, except the lamb chops left something to be desired.
We must have had a fairly new server. His attention level was not there. He did not really know the product. It took him quite a while to clear the table and the restaurant was not that busy. He had one other table. this is not acceptable. We have been there before and the wait staff was much better on a crowded night.
But as I said the food was good.

This was the most delicious Bronzino I ever ate. The food and service were magic. I'd go back in a heartbeat. The quality of the food was worth the money.
