Happy Year of the Dragon, Molly.
So. The food seemed to suffer from an over-reliance on salt and dried oregano. Strange that the least-salty thing I ate was the haloumi! The haloumi was unusually good, though. Softer, creamier than most I've had, and much less salty.
Maybe I just ordered the wrong things? Because the place started filling up as the night wore on, and many of the diners seemed to be regulars. The staff knew them by name, had a cheerful catch-up. And the prices are good for a local get-together with friends. BYO and you could walk away full for about $20 per head. (I spent a bit more, Molly, but by the time the seafood plate came around I was sated.)

The "no photos because of trademark" thing intrigued me, Molly. For a start, they publish their menu on their website. And the food presentation was nothing special. The only logical conclusion (and it's a bit of a stretch) is that they're looking to franchise. After the boom in Thai and Mexican franchises, perhaps Greek is next in line?
Another blogger did manage to snap some photos a year ago, though, if you're interested.
