And who would expect fine dining at these prices? Kisamos is a great little family-style Greek restaurant with decent food at very, very affordable prices. Appetizers are good (love the taramasalata) and the souvlaki (the best bet on the menu) are fantastic. The portions are huge. Personally, I wouldn't order lamb (although my husband, who grew up in a big French Canadian family loves the lamb - says it's just like home cooking). As stated before, this is not fine dining, nor does it aspire to be. If you want lamb cooked to your specifications, you are going to have to pay a lot more than $14.99. Stick to the souvlaki and appetizers and you won't be disappointed - and make a reservation - Kisamos is packed almost every night of the week.

Cafeteria? White Spot? -- what are these people thinking of?

Griffins is a wonderful venue for a large party. We invited twenty people for an engagement party on a Saturday night.
The service was excellent and the food is extremely well priced - $39 per person included the appetizer buffet (cold seafood, salads, marinated vegetables and a lovely hot fish chowder) ; a choice of three entrees with vegetables (the prime rib serving was enormous and everyone was delighted with it - I had the wild salmon and it was lovely) ; and the dessert buffet (truly the best rice pudding). In addition, the chef brought out a lovely chocolate fondue as a compliment to the engaged couple.
Griffins is not a linen tablecloth dining room but it is most certainly not a cafeteria (food fairs are cafeterias) nor does it bear any resemblance to the White Spot - in decor, food, or service.
We had a wonderful evening and would definately return.
