Had dinner there. Lovely atmosphere. Ate scallops mixed with couscous and finely chopped vegetables and served with lemon potatoes. OH had lamb chops with rice and potatoes. Wonderful service from Meredith.

I really liked the food here. It was everything you'd want out of a non-fancy Greek place. We got ours to go and ate it by the river. The falafel and hummus were great and I"m picky about those items.

The service and food is always great, and consistent. Parking is somewhat of a bear, so please plan accordingly. Great location and my favorite spot on the River.
