                                                          Did not like how they Cancelled my reservation TWICE. I'm guessing they didn't want to pay the fee for my reservation thru OPENTABLE.

                                                          We came for Oakland Restaurant Week. The dinner began with hummus and pita bread. The hummus was thinner than I am accustomed but very delicious with a nice garlicky taste. The salad was a typical Greek salad with cucumbers, tomato, and peppers and very fresh. The lamb chops were perfectly cooked and well seasoned. They were laid upon a bed of rice topped with a roasted tomato. All in all, it was delicious and we will be back. The one negative is that we were served and charged for the higher price white wine which was not what we ordered.
