The place is very nice and quite! The stuff is friendly, the atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxed. I very like Greek cuisine. It was pretty good, but not the best one. But we were really enjoining spending time there.

One of the few restaurants that has withstood the onslaught of development on the UWS! The food and the waiters the artwork and the menu are authentic and the ORIGINALS. If you're not sure what to order, ask the waiters. They'll be happy to tell you what's good! Wonderful!

This is a great place near Columbia University for excellent Greek cuisine. Not fancy, a major CU hang out, and very reasonably priced. They serve the full range of Greek dishes although the menu is a bit challenging. Authentic and fun.

Started coming here about 2 years ago. Close to Cathedral of St. John the Divine so it makes a great place for dinner before a concert there. Service is excellent and food is spectacular. Also very inexpensive. Try one of the gyros...a glass of wine.

This is not the greatest Greek food you will ever have, but it's far from the worst. It's a cozy basement place with a down home feeling, and waiters who feel like they have been there forever. Easy on the wallet.

This is a family run consistently wonderful old fashioned Greek restaurant. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is funky and it's a Columbia U hangout. Very casual.

We brought 14 people on a Monday night. The staff handled it very well. The flaming cheese is yummy and fun w a group. The entres were all good. Everyone liked their order. Several gyro platters were order on my end of the table, the portions were large. Only complaint was the wine pour was skimpy.

Don't get much Greek food where we live so always enjoy visiting here when in NYC. Had the Potpourri of Greek foods -really a lot of food - could share. The house red wine was light and dry

It is my favorite Greek restaurant in the city (Manhattan); there are others that are really good (Kefi and Molyvos) but this one I love; Tassos is the proprietor who has been there for a long time; a Greek owner who loves his guests and loves his work; the place reminds me of a type of restaurant that used to...
