I was prepared to be "wowed" based on the reviews here. I guess the mediocre gets raves in the burbs as long as there are no glaring flaws.
We walked in to find the room only 1/3 full on a Saturday night. Not great ambiance there. The room itself is decorated fine, it's just that you have to remember it's in a strip mall. They have done nothing with the room that would make you think it's anywhere else but a strip mall. Just a big open room.
The waitress was OVER the TOP. She would not leave us alone to the point of my partner getting almost mad at her. Every 2 minutes she wanted us to order. When we ordered out first drink she wanted to know if we wanted appetizers or were just going to order dinner right then. We'd been there less than 5 minutes. This went on over and over.
We ordered the red pepper and feta dip. Neither of us was very fond of it. It had a weird texture because the dip was smooth and then had chunks of red pepper and feta in it. Very little flavour. Not what we expected. We ate more bread than dip and when we asked for an extra piece of bread we were charged $1.50! I have NEVER been charged extra for bread in a Greek Restaurant. The bread itself was good.
My partner like his entree. I had a souvlaki and found it average and a little overpriced. The potatoes were not the usualy nice greek potatoes just plain with the skin on and the rice had pieces of veggies in it, again not to my liking. The tzatziki portion while miniscule, was good and the greek salad very good. WIne selections by the glass were slightly high for a suburban strip mall restaurant but portions good at least.
Dessert was premade factory offerings, not homemade. I would never order dessert in a reastaurant unless it was made there. If it's not important enough for them to make it, it's not important enough for me to spend my money on. Plus by that time it was 8:30 in the burbs and there was no one left in the restaurant, just someones sweeping up, like "get out". Then the waitress pulled the biggest faux pas in my books and asked us to pay the bill because it was her quitting time.
All in all other than the obnoxious waitress, very little about this place was memorable and I would probably not return. Pallas Athena does the whole strip mall greek thing much better.
