Reasonable cozy place. Went there Friday night. Have seen the place in business for years and this was my first trip. The staff was very accommodating and tried to offer a new, more cozy table when it became available but it was not necessary. Had the Red Mud Chard(Australia) which was quite good at $36. The specials offered were a bit expensive so we stayed on the menu. One diner loved the stuffed chicken breast. The trout eater was also happy with her choice. Both who had them really liked the vegetables, particularly the zucchini preparation. I had the Seafood Putanesca and the other fellow had the Oceanos - both the same shellfish ingredients with different broths. It also was very good and the calamari in it were some of the best and tenderest I have ever had. I also had a glass of the house white which was tasty and ample for $8. The chef came out and asked how everything was and w gave him a positive - probably a B. All in all, a cozy place with good service, good food and a place I will see again.
Over Seasoned, Over Priced, Over The Top.
The ambiance was nice and thats the only positive thing about this restaurant.
The five of us dining at this establishment had nothing nice to say about the service or food. The chef came over to ask us how everything was, but when confronted with negativity he stormed off like a child.
I ordered the Beef Anar which I nicknamed....."Fruity Pebbles." The steak tips where the same size as the pomegranate fruit in the dish and tasted just like them. Way too fruity and over seasoned - was more like dessert than an entree. The other diners in my party ordered the stuffed chicken and trout. The chicken was so salty the diner's cholesterol went up instantaneously and her palate will never be the same. The trout was flattened and over cooked, almost as if it was prepared on a George Foreman Grill.
Save your money and your taste buds and go to some of the other countless great establishments in Addison.
Very Overrated, with so many restaurants to choose, pick another, any other!.
The walls are lined with "rave" reviews of the ribeye preperation, I wonder if they were produced on someone's home computer. My ribeye was poorly trimmed / grizzled (and $32). Lots of salt does not make a good steak!
Mediterranean? Last I knew (and I am from the east side of that sea), that consists of a substantially different menu.
I like garlic - but the garlic mashed potatoes well ... were more garlic than potatoes. Humus more garlic than chick peas and tahini.
Do yourself a favor go ... anywhere else than this overpriced over hyped Golden Corral with too much garlic and salt.

This was the worst dining experience I've ever had. It was very obvious that they were either short a server or short staffed. We were told the specials when we sat down and then were not visited again for 30 minutes. Our food - salad and soup took another 20 minutes. There was never a comment about how long we had to wait. . .no apology, no "thank you for waiting". . .nothing.
The marinara sauce served with the complimentary pita bread is the cold version of the tomato basil soup. While it isn't bad with the pita bread definitely wouldn't recommend for the soup.
