Fish Soup – Everything was very enjoyable and I would like to thank Kathy for taking me. If you like sea food, you MUST have the fish soup, I have never tasted any better anywhere. Also friendly service and great music.
Best Greek food I've had in years! – This is the best Greek restaurant I've been to since I visited "GreekTown" in Detroit. The saganaki was great - my husband, who is not a cheese lover, wanted to order a second one. The service was very friendly, particularly the hostess who greeted us. The dolmathes - both vegetarian and beef-filled - were fabulous. My only complaint: the vegetable of the day was decent but would have been better if canned peas hadn't been used. I wish we had room for baklava with ice cream and Grand Marnier - it sounded wonderful. We settled for an order of baklava to go. It turned out nicely -sweet but not drowning in honey. Next time we will try more of the appetizers and maybe have a few drinks - the menu for both was extensive. I look forward to our next visit to Columbus just to eat here again.
At this Brewery District restaurant, you'll feel as if you're in the home of an old, wealthy Greek family. – The Scene
Much to the chagrin of many, the European turned to ashes in 1999. But from the rubble has risen a new Phoenix, a somber, beautiful, romantic Greek restaurant. And what a place it is: high ceilings, deep and heavy carpet, hardwood and red leather upholstery. There are no howling babies or televisions blaring sports here. Instead, you'll hear Greek music of all persuasions.
Sample a horiatiki (Greek village salad) with tomato, cucumber, Greek peppers, onion, feta and Kalamata in olive oil dressing. The saganaki and kalamari were OK, but not outstanding. The real humdingers lie in the entree region. Shrimp mykonos is sauteed in wine, feta and tomato sauce; the dish is rich, tangy, and inspirational and can be served over rice pilaf or spaghetti. The roast leg of lamb served as an excellent foil to such a dinner, as its languid heaviness was reinforced by the small size of the portion.
Fine Food – Good food. a nice restaurant. service could have been a bit quicker at first, but the food more than makes up for it. Not cheap, well not if you drink anyway.
Best Greek ever!!!! – I am overjoyed to endorse this restaurant, the best hummus I have eaten outside of greece, wonderful baklava, and great music on saturday nights. If you come to columbus for any reason and like greek or are greek, you need to stop by and give it a try.........ask for James for the best service, his wine and menu suggestions eclipse that of most of the other servers
yum yum – I have visited Greece a few times and this food is very close to the real stuff. It tastes great and the place has a great look.
Gratuity – A very gratuitous experience, the waiter was on time every time. The wine selection was complete, and the food accomidated my finicky company. Several specials to choose from including seafood, lamb, and a wonderful salad. A definite return customer, and any first time date would be included, due to the excited atmosphere.
If the musician had started earlier it would have been a perfect 10.
nice little place – The food was great and so was the ambience. The service was ok once another server filled in. Our original server disappeared, but she was nice. I would go again and get dessert.
There's a piece of Greece in Columbus – The thoroughly greek instrumental stylings of The Opa Trio led me to an elegant dining room covered only by stars.Surrounded by shrubs,flowers,and soft white lights,the ambience was unlike anything else in Columbus.The feast that met my eyes paled in comparison to the feast that met my stomach. The authentic food was incredible, rich with spices and fresh vegetables.It was complimented perfectly with wine suggested by our friendly and attentive waitress,who answered my questions about the extensive menu and five page list of greek wines.I left feeling as if I had spent a night in Greece amongst old friends.It was a wonderful experience and I recommend this place to everyone I know!
You Don't Need To Go To Greece... – The food, service and ambiance of this restaurant is excellent. In the summers - the outdoor seating is great for those not wishing to be confined by walls. On Saturdays - the band plays Greek dance music on the patio outside... luring the diners to get up and dance in the aisles. The food is excellent - very reminiscent of the taverna food I ate while living on mainland Greece and the islands - but, BETTER!!!!
