This restaurant was set back in a quiet street and the food was spectacular. The starter was big enough to be a main but I would highly recommend the stuffed squid starter and the fillet mignon main - absolutely delicious. The service time was also very good.

A wonderful spot with fabulous fresh fish. Location is off the usual beaten track, but worth heading downtown. The decor is understated. Service is excellent and the food worth the money. Good for a date or a big event.

I ate here first at a banquet and it was inedible. On the way out I saw seafood displayed that I wanted to try so went back thinking it would be better than banquet food. Wrong. It was expensive and bad. Mushy King Shrimp, bitter langustinos, it just was bad. Skip it. If they were once good, they are no... More

Pleasant enough place but with a wee problem serving fish. Which is tricky when your speciality is seafood and fish. Onehand's son is a chef who's the first to say cooking fish well is not easiest thing to do (steaks by comparison are a walk in the park) and here the fish was overdone. So while it's nice to have...

We eat Greek food whenever we can. often it's casual and not suitable for 'a nice night out' or in sketchy neighborhoods This was a great find. High end location, beautiful modern decor- it feels very chic and then the menu is filled with sophisticated versions of known flavors. No gyros or souvlaki here. Fresh grilled fish. Not overrun by... More

An attractive room on a side street in TriBeCa hearkening back to a genteel professional European style of service. The menu is heavily weighted to seafood but surprisingly the two items I wanted were not available. Our meal was good and my vegetarian friend was accommodated by the kitchen.The food was good and perfectly good but not overwhelmingly so. The... More

I ate dinner here last night with a group of 32 people. We sat on the main floor in the back with 5 tables of 6 people. The food was outstanding/amazing and the service was great!! My boss has high standards and he was happy.

My first time to this restaurant. It was wonderful. Staff, service, food, ambience - this place has it all. We tried the small plates as appetizers - lamb chops and spanikopita - they were both delicious, most tender lamb I have ever had. We all had seafood for dinner. It's all fresh, on display when you come in. We couldn't... More

Although this is not on par with New York's best Greeks like Milos, it is a great location and the space is large, well-designed, and airy. It makes for a very relaxing dinner. I assumed there are times when it is crowded but when we went last night, Wednesday, it was well attended but not overwhelming. It was a terrific... More

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighbourhood Profile
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighbourhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighbourhood home.
