Q-Tips say: We really liked: The complimentary olive mixture w/ olive oil and drizzles of balsamic vinegar and our appetizer SAGANAKI Opa…! Grilled Kasseri cheese flamed with brandy at table side, with grilled pita bread. Mrs. Q liked her entree: LAMB KABOB – A Kebabs on a skewer with onions and bell peppers, seasoned and char grilled & a cup of AVGOLEMONO – The famous Greek Chicken, Lemon & Rice soup. Mr. Q enjoyed his GYRO Sandwich – Slices of rotisserie Gyro on a pita with onions, tomatoes, lettuce and house made Tzadziki sauce. Served with hand-cut fries. The Fries were delicious. Our friends had the GREEK SALAD – Fresh lettuce garnished with tomatoes,olives, cucumbers, pepperoncinis, beets, green peppers, onion and Feta cheese with Gyro Meat. The other had: the Greek Chicken, Lemon Soup and SEARED SCALLOPS – Ocean scallops seasoned and pan seared served over creamy leek & mushroom orzo, with arugula vinaigrette mix.
The only disappointment was the Pita Bread. Mr. Q was unable to cut it for his Gyro Sandwich.
The Happy Hour House Wines and Drinks were good and very reasonably priced. Service was good and our server was appropriately attentive.
Mrs. Q says: GO on Weds. for $5.00 Saganaki.
