A friend and I dined here on December 13, 2013 prior to seeing a show at the State Theater. We are locals and are always looking for new places to try which in Portland is pretty easy to find. Upon being seated we were served an amuse bouche (as described by previous reviewers) which was delicious. We inquired about the wines as we were not familiar with Greek wines and our server brought us each two tastings to try. After being poured a glass of wine we were given time to look over the menu and decided to start with the rabbit and scallop appetizers which were both delicious. For our entrees we had the duck and veal which were exquisite. The spices used in these dishes were just right and had a certain "warmth" to them which was perfect on this frigid night! For dessert we had the baklava and chocolate cake. Again, they were quite delicious and neither were too sweet. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience. I usually find when dining at similar places that you either get good food, good service, good atmosphere or a combination of any two. But at Emilitsa we got all three. Great cozy atmosphere, superb service timed just right, and fabulous cuisine. And for anyone that thinks Greek food is out of their comfort zone, I don't think there's anything too far fetched for the average diner. Enjoy!
