On a Sunday early evening, the restaurant was empty, except 4 of us. Finding street parking was very hard to find. Food was decent served by not so knowledgeable waiter. The boss, who is passionate about his food was away. Menu is limited. All items...More

This tiny unassuming, no frills restaurant is a find. The menu states it was established in 1976--not sure if it has always been at this location but the food represents years of serving guests unique, savory meals. We visited with a Groupon and were immediately...More

Back again -- for the umpteenth time. Whatever you choose, Max will cook it up deliciously. This place is a gem -- but don't tell everyone! Salmon, chicken, hummus. Great Middle-Eastern food. If you haven't tried this cuisine -- try it here!

Great Groupon experience! Max, the owner, was very hospitable. The lamb shank Fessenjan and sea bass were excellent! I would also highly recommend the baked eggplant app. Very good Sangria, but too expensive by the glass. Max gave my fiancé a red rose. Our second...More

I don't recall, but if you want a fireplace, try Santorini in Greek Town. It's my favorite place to go on a cold night.
