Looks can definitely be deceiving. I agree, high prices can only be justified by good food.

Went with a group of 12 girls. First of all, they didn't want to do separate checks. In this day with the available technology, doing separate checks is easy... you'd have to be lazy to not offer it.

For an appy we ordered hand cut chips and duck spring rolls. Chips were awesome, but then again, how can fried potatoes go wrong? Spring rolls were a huge dissapointment, all they tasted like was some game-y meat rolled in pastry... no flavor at all, and the flavorless dipping sauce didn't help either. Was really hopeful about the arctic char with lime-coconut sauce. Was again, really dissapointed; fish was nicely cooked, but that's all the dish had going for it. It just tasted wrong.

The restaurant was really busy and hosted many customers drinking many overpriced drinks. the decor is great, though overpowered by the lack of music and echo of too many conversations all at once. Overall, a place to go if you want to feel posh... not a place to go if you want to enjoy your meal. Some tweaking needs to happen if they're to stay afloat for long.

Been here a couple of times. Food is ok. Always get the carbonara... not authentic, but really tasty anyway. Service is polite. Decor is meek. Not a bad place to go to eat... not for a nice night out though.

I love this place! Not your typical greek restaurant. They've taken things a step further and changed things up a bit by offering different sides with all their meals. Not the usual rice and potatoes like everywhere else. The best are their green beans they serve with the calamari... in a red sauce with chopped nuts mmm. Plus they're always accomodating to substitutions with no hassle. Service can be a bit unpredictable, but it's understandable with young people these days, but the management is always cheery. Ambiance and lighting is nice, I especially like the uniquely lit ceiling. A nice place to go for a date.

A friend and I went here using the entertainment book. We were looking for a place that had a patio. Aside from the bird poop on a couple of tables, patio was alright. Ordered the crab and artichoke dip and got a concoction of cream sauce with mixed in pieces of artichoke... we were left searching for the crab. Entrees were as good as one can expect when going to a chain-style restaurant: just ok. Wouldn't go back.
