      Not recommended
      Really not great at all. Came here to treat myself on vacation. It all started with the entrance. They have ! doors (confusing), I went in one door and had to track down the host stand which was not actually by the second door, but located in the middle of the restaurant.... horrible!!. The food was just ok. It started off ok... bland hummus and wheat bread. Next I had the shrimp appetizer which looked good, but then I realized that I just paid $4 per shrimp of mediocre size that were swimming a pool of sauce. My entree looked like something from a can of chef boyardee. Leg of lamb which was actually really tender. It was smothered in a bland tomato sauce and came with a heaping portion of overcooked orzo. I decided to cut my loses and skip dinner. The service could have added value, but it only took away from the experience. If you have to call a server over multiple times its a sign of mediocrity. I love greek food and have had many great experiences. I will try one of the other places in town when I'm back.

      I never miss an opportunity to eat here
      The food here is so good that there is usually a line to get in. This is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in. Try the shrimp or the lamb chops BUT there isn't anything here that isn't wonderful. The waiters are excellent and even though it's not a gay restaurant, the other customers are friendly. One evening we sat next to a large group of older straight people. They started offering us some of their appetizers (and we accepted)... great, friendly crowd!
