Quality meals, friendly service, and a great wine selection. Good for late evening supper. Start at the bar, and then enjoy the great menu...

Have never been disappointed in the food. Always terrific. The room can get VERY busy and loud, but if you like an "energetic" enviornment, this is the ticket. Service ranges from attentive and professional to brusque and borderline rude. Always a crap shoot.

It;s correctly ranked #1 in San Francisco. I'm Greek so I usually avoid Greek restaurants when travelling. Based on the reviews I decided to make an exception this once. And I'm so glad I did. Everything is excellent. Make sure you make a reservation though.

This is really an excellent restaurant. The atmosphere is fantastic. Tables well prepared and chairs so confortable. Greek salad is very good. Octopus grilled and Lamb chops well cooked and presented. Delicious. I extremely recommend this place in San Francisco. GF

One of the best Greek restaurants in the Bay Area, which doesn't have that many overall. This one is 1st-rate, with good saganaki and an open grill. It's not cheap but this is well worth a try.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

Hi. You'd have to contact them, I'm not the restaurant and I do not know if they are open on Thanksgiving. My apologies.

You should call or email the restaurant. If they are, expect to pay quite a bit more than usual.
