Service was fast, but The food did not have any flavor. We were very disappointed, because people were raving about the food. The calamari was tasteless and the lamb shank was not good at all. The waiter and the belly dancer was the only good thing.

The ambience was so fun to celebrate in. Nevertheless the food was absolutely amazing from appetizers to each persons entree. The salmon dip was freaking amazing!!!!!!

Know that’s it’s not a quiet space for a romantic dinner - they had uptempo music playing throughout the dinner. But, on a Friday night after a long workday, my wife and I enjoyed ourselves.

Dima was awesome, she really was moving but stayed attentive to all her tables. Fun atmosphere for party mood. Loud but ok for environment, not really a “romantic” place but definitely place for fun. Food was good, not great but would be back for right occasion.

Food tasted good but our bill for two was almost $200 including the tip. We did have drinks too. So if money isn't a thing for you, then go because other than that everything else was good.

They wanted to stick us right in front of the door but later moved us. The food portion is good but mine was cold and so were others at the table.

Decided to sit at the bar where we were ignored for 30 min. Mind you, six other people were seated at the bar and all of them had been served. We decided it was best if we just left and found another place to eat.

Our biggest problem was that our entrees arrived two hours after we sat down. The restaurant was not overly busy but service was very slow at several tables. The waiter blamed it on the kitchen. The food was okay, but we have had better.

Has outdoor seating, which is quieter than indoors. Cocktails good and full bar available. There is a belly dancer, who isnt actually a belly dancer, more of somebody wearing the costume and dancing a heavily hipped dance around the tables. Still, it was fun and entertaining. DJ was stuck in the 1980's, though, even though the people were ready to dance. He did take requests, but playing so much old old music pretty much cleared the place out. Too bad; we would have stayed later and had more drinks, but just couldn't. Get that music happening and this will be a great place!

Not on this occasion. It was obvious that the gyro meat we were served had been on the spit far too long (probably because of lack of diners). It was charred and tough. On the positive side, the greek salad served with the gyro plate was farm-to-table fresh and delicious. Service was OK On this occasion, we would not have recommended the restaurant to a friend. We hope it was a one off
