Went here for dinner and it was great. The server was really attentive and friendly. I order the lamb chops and they were cooked perfectly. The restaurant is a little far from downtown and difficult to get to, but it is well worth the effort.

Made a tactical error. Ordered Halibut but could not see the ocean. Dry and boring. The "inspired" owners have not eaten this lately. There is a reason this place is half empty. Crab cakes tastes like grease and canned tuna. My wife's 17 dollar Greek...More
