Love this place. I've been several times and try something different every time. It has all been absolutely delicious. Most of the time, the restaurant is packed because the secret is out. It's nice to eat outside on the patio when the weather cooperates. We...More

When a friend suggested we visit this restaurant before a show I was hesitant, because I didn't like Greek food--or so I thought. I reluctantly agreed, and was so glad I did. I ordered the chicken kabob, and it was so delicious that I have...More
