I'm an avid fan of Greece, having been there more than 15 times and eaten at both restaurants all over Greece and in Greek homes, I can say that I have a small idea of how Greek food should taste. 

I had dinner there tonight, sampled many of their dishes and every bite brought me back to Greece. Not only that, we asked for seconds and then we realized that the kitchen was actually closed (it seems to have closed 20 minutes before we ordered the seconds) but that did not stop them. Our dishes came out promptly and with a smile.

I can see myself quickly becoming a regular here, thank you Avlee for an incredible dinner. Euxaristw! 

Ordered from here twice but never again. I placed an order tonight and was told it would take 45 minutes. Called about an hour later and an unapologetic and frazzled woman said that the food was still not done - which means i would have had to wait another 30 minutes. Understand this place is semi new but g*d damn Avlee, get your act and staff together. I never write harsh reviews but this one called for the realities of this establishment. Diners you have been warned. Take your greek elsewhere.
