My husband and I chose Kostas because we love Greek food! We really enjoyed our chicken gyro and chicken souvlaki salad. We were served very quickly with many coffee refills as desired. Would definitely recommend!

Food is good,although they don't have all the Greek dishes I expected... atmosphere & service is decent. Prices, bit high for what you're getting. Parking is not good, especially at prime times plus it's on-street metered.
