What a hidden treasure. We found this restaurant through trip advisor and were so thrilled at the quality of the food and the great service. The flavors were rich, the atmosphere relaxing and the owners were delightful. Thanks for the wonderful evening.

Delicious, fresh Greek food. My husband and I went there after seeing Jethro's was packed. A very good decision! We had the toasted pita with hummus appetizer (delish) lemon chicken soup (devine) Greek salad (yum) he had the gyro dinner, I had the souvlaki. Both came with dolma, spanikopita, orzo and tiropita. All were incredible. The timing of the meal was impeccable; even though we had a lot of food, we didn't feel stuffed at the end. We even had room for their baklava, whick, of course was amazing.

I love Olympic Flame!
I'm embarrased to say, but I don't think I've had any main dish besides gyros. I'm a gyro fanatic, and their's is great. They're generous with the meat and don't add lettuce- something I've seen at some places lately, and think is odd.
They do a great saganaki. And when you get a dinner platter, you feel like royalty. They just bring you more and more food. Lemon soup, warm bread and butter, Greek salad. And the platter includes dolma, spanakopita, orzo, and tiropita, allowing you to sample a variety of Greek specialties.
My boyfriend has tried a variety and dishes and has loved them all. I promise someday I'll try the moussaka or pasticcio as everything else is wonderful.
Not to mention the warm, friendly service!

Feels like authentic Greek food. Gyro was delicious. Waitress was very friendly and informative. Use fresh, natural ingredients. Good quality. Owner/chef seems very friendly and takes pride in his food, as he should! Great experience!
