This restaurant is located on the northeastern end of City Place, a complex of retail shops, restaurants, and condos across the Hudson River from Manhattan in Edgewater, New Jersey. We were staying at the Homewood Suites hotel which is part of the City Place complex. Having had a filling lunch earlier in the day in New York City, we decided... More

Love the salads, fried Zucchini and eggplant chips. Their fish is delicious and fresh prepared to perfection including their lamb chops, which are to die for. Great service and Great views of the Hudson River and Manhattan. They also have outside seating weather permitting. It's worth a visit.

We were looking for a good place to eat and ventured here. The service was only average, not really very attentive at all. Our fish was filled with bones like we have never seen before. Pretty disgusting actually. And for the money, it was way overpriced. If given a choice we would never eat here again.

Stumbled into the GREEK taverna the other night and was delighted by the service and the food. The classics, a gyro and pasticio, were fresh and very tasty. The service was prompt and efficient, without being overbearing.

Love the Tomato Salad. Love ANNA, our favorite waitperson. Grilled Chicken Platter, is what we eat, often. Great CITY PLACE view of NYC. The only thing that sometimes annoys us, is the owner/manager is always on the floor, and doesn't ever say Hello or thank you for eating hear.

Also we had One plate... More

The restaurant allows you to bring your own wine and they also have a wine list. A very friendly, casual warm place to spend an evening with friends or family. The gyros are good as is the grilled branzini and of course the Greek salad. The pitas are warm and with just the right amount of butter. Certainly a place... More
