Went with two other couples. Got there early and had a drink at the bar. Greek white wine for me, a dionysus cocktail for my wife. Split three apps - spreads (tzatziki, eggplant and red pepper) with pita, grilled calamari stuffed with spinach and cheese, and fried eggplant and zucchini chips. All were great. Bread and hummus was good too.... More

Decent food. We enjoyed the fish selections. Langostines and lobster with a side of Mediterranean roasted potatoes. Flavors were authentic, and the appetizer (a plate of three spreads including roasted red pepper), was delicious. Beer selection is a little lacking.

Walking into the historic building and dining area was refreshing itself as compared to the busy downtown streets ... While the dining room is formal it is considerably more comfortable than ostentatious ... The menu was delightful to peruse while sipping some greek wine ... and without prompting, since we admitted knowing little about Greek wines, we were offered an... More

I went here on a Saturday night with colleagues since we were all in town for a conference. We had a tiny wait at the bar but otherwise the food was as good as we expected. That is, except for the cheese stuffed calamari. I would eat here again.

We had such a great meal here last Friday night. We were scheduled to go to a play across the street at the Academy of Music and opted for convenience. The ambiance is lovely - very warm, inviting, comfortable. Our server very kindly pointed out the theater menu. This option is less expensive than ordering from the regular menu. It... More

Enjoyed again this resaurant. The service and food were the best. Their deep fried eggplant appetizer was to die for. Will be back for sure!

We came as a large group to celebrate my birthday. We ate in the private room downstairs- the ambiance was amazing. Our service was spot on and the food was delicious. We started with calamari which was very tender, spanakopita and the Estia chips. I was so glad the server showed us the market fish samples- seeing the size of... More

They will bring the flaming salt covered fish to your table to see but will return with just the filet plated and delectable. Bustling space with service that could be slightly more attentive. High price point but very tasty. Don't think "Greek" but rather seafood and your expectations will be met or surpassed.
