Review: Paul’s Homewood Cafe

photo 3-2As a last minute decision on a Saturday evening, we went to Paul’s Homewood Café for an early dinner. I knew we were taking a chance without reservations, but hoped at 5:30pm we could sneak in before the crowds. It worked out perfectly and we had an hour and a half to enjoy a table in a quiet area before it was reserved for a party at 7pm.

A lively group of customers was already present at the bar and a party was going on upstairs. The ambiance was festive for a cold January evening. We started off with a glass of Riesling for me, and a beer for Paul (my husband, not the namesake of the restaurant). Fresh baked bread and butter arrived at the table.

The Greek Meze Dinner includes a Greek salad or spreads with the choice of three (or four) of the following: Spanakopita, Dolmathes, Moussaka, Avgolemono soup, beef, chicken, or Lamb Kabobs.

We were looking for a light dinner and both opted for salmon over an entree salad. My salmon was blackened and the salad was Paul’s Greek, while my husband’s salmon was grilled, over a garden salad. He’s not a fan of feta. We agreed that the salmon was not only moist and delicious, but consisted of a generous portion. The salads were fresh and lightly dressed.

Service has always been excellent at Paul’s. Although they were gearing up for a busy Saturday night, we received lots of attention and friendly service.

Dinner for two – $54.95
