Most excellent Mediterranean tapas. Everything we had was quite good, inclusive wine list. Desserts, appetizers, and entrées all very good as was the service.

It was my first time eating here, limited help from servers. The food was good for me because I eat little meat. But my husband was not happy. They are cheap with meat portion sizes, giving him 4 meatballs for the choice of meats. He felt like a grazing cow!

We all were pleasantly pleased with the quality of our meals. Our only complaint is that it was a little too cold for a few of us. Will definitely be back.

I absolutely adore this restaurant! The food is phenomenal. I think at this point we've probably tried everything on the menu. Never been disappointed! The only cons are that it is small so on a weekend it's crowded and there will be a wait but it's well worth it.

The food is exceptional and delicious. The atmosphere is hard surface and very loud and hard to hear. Lighting is dim and is nice for romantic dinners to stare into each other's eyes - We couldn't hear each other. The flaming cheese is way too salty. All other dishes yummy and prettily presented. Tapas with a Greek flare and so... More

Came here with a good friend last week and absolutely loved it. The lamb meatballs in particular melted in my mouth, and the brussel sprouts were killer. Will be back for sure.

The food was really very good, but portions are small even though they are meant to share. The hush puppies are a must have -- delicious!! The watermelon salad was also very good.

I ordered a small variety of plates from apps to entree. Too full for dinner, but next time. Hummus and pita - delicious. Hangar steak - perfect, Falafel, fine and hush puppy cheese ok, but next time I will be trying their house specialty of the flaming cheese. Beet salad - good. Salmon - cooked perfectly, but did not like... More

I found a long black hair in my salad. The waitress reached over and took it out. They offer a free shot of Vodka for the hair, but I was to upset.
