I had the evening off and thought I'd go out for a nice dinner somewhere and relax. When I paid for parking on the street, I then walked in and waited as the young man would not make eye contact as he was wiping tables. Obviously busy, I waited for someone to acknowledge me and offer a table. He finally came around and made it feel like I was interrupting his work rather than knowing I was the purpose of it. I told him table for one and he got a menu in his hand, asked inside or out and I said maybe that corner table inside, give me the menu and I can seat myself, he agreed.I saw the specials board and Roast Lamb was on special, something I haven't had in quite a very long time. Waiting up to 10 minutes, he came over to take my order, I ordered the feta pate, one of my favourite Greek dips consisting of spicy red pepper and feta cheese, it came out almost right away and he had brought a glass of water to the table, I was almost wanting something else and had he asked, I might've been persuaded to order something but then I didn't really need anything else so glad he never did. As I was on my phone checking my emails as I travel lots and hadn't had a chance to spend time to myself, I was slowly working my way through the dip when the entree arrived prematurely. I was kind of put off by it, but went with it. I tried the Greek salad and it was tasty and the Roast Lamb was cooked to perfection, plenty of rice and a half potato roasted with 3 baby carrots and some pita bread. The server never did return after he dropped the food off...not once!! I wanted more water, but no return, I can say if it was busy but it wasn't that busy. Either way, they had a sign on the door to hire an experienced flexible server for immediate employment...possibly if they didn't have this practice, they might attract some quality staff to ensure the guests have a good time and return. It's too bad as the food is worth going back for, but I decided to vote with my feet and not return to this restaurant...too much attitude for nothing...time to find another Greek restaurant to go and try and to support.

My husband and I stopped for lunch yesterday after reading many reviews. We were not disappointed. Our meals were about $10.25, mine included Moussaka, Greek Salad, Potato, Rice, Pita Bread all very tasty, Our server was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the restaurant was small but quaint. The salad was small and not as tasty as other Greek Salads I've had in the states, but all in all we were very pleased and will go again.

Dropped by on a Saturday for a small birthday celebration. Very busy with Christmas parties, but managed to fit us in (I strongly recommend a reservation). Everyone happy with their meal. About $30 each, with tip, no wine. Fast and friendly service, in spite of the large group next to us.

Happy to see that there are still paces like this! Very old school dÃ©cor. The menu covers everything; sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, Greek offerings etc. Very friendly server. It was a fairly busy lunch time but she handled everything and everyone, all by herself. Lots of regulars, always a good sign. Our burger and club sandwich were excellent, large portions, very reasonable prices. We are new to the area but I think we'll be regulars here, too.

Had a great experience here. The souvlaki, rice, salad, pita, all of it was so delicious and in very generous portions. Definitely glad we decided to give this place a try, we will for sure be back for more soon. I highly recommend this spot for anyone craving Greek food. Our server Sam was great and all the staff were super nice.

Very busy place even mid week but we scored a table, by the window, after a very short wait. Large menu with all the usual Greek specialties. OK wine list, fairly priced. Pleasant server but obviously rushed. We both had the grilled calamari. This happens to be one of my favourite things in the whole world, but not at this restaurant. A disgrace. I was thankful I ordered just the appetizer and not the dinner! Our mains arrived fairly quickly. My lamb souvlaki was horribly over cooked to the point of being hard, dry, tasteless smallish chunks of meat. Who could tell it was lamb? My husband's lamb chops were a lot better....five chops cooked rare as ordered. We both had a mound of like warm rice and potatoes, another disappointment and a made ahead Greek salad. Very strange pita bread, too. None of these short comings seemed to bother the other diners but I've had much better Greek food plus I was looking for something other than pub grub or fish and chips, so I was hugely disappointed. We are very sorry to hear about your experience at our restaurant. We wish you would have brought this to our attention because this is not typical for us. Had we known we wouldâve rectified any problem you may have had with your food as we like our customers to leave happy.
