Tuesday March 18, 2014: my 11th anniversary! 9:30pm work means a Late dinner. Things are great we were about 1/2 way thru our souvlaki then hubby's eye catches a cockroach walking along the wall next to our table!

If you've been to Stepho's it's the raised dining area to your left when entering through the front door, tables along the window cut outs that hold plants. Anyways I freaked! Jumped up & ran to the bar to ask for a manager then I returned and I snapped some pics as proof. He came to table (European decent curly long dark hair pulled back into a pony tail I didn't get his name) he didn't say anything just grabbed a dish cloth came over to the table & asked my hubby where it was. Hubby pointed it out manager scooped it up with a cloth & walked away. THAT'S IT!! No sorry no nothing!!

Our waiter seemed embarrassed after awkwardly standing beside our table for a few minutes I realized the manager wasn't gonna return and address the issue. There was no way I was gonna sit back down so without another word we exited through the back door. No one tried to stop us. It was horrible. Stepho's has been our go to place for Greek for over a decade but not any more! The amount of clientele that comes through that place you'd think they could afford a exterminator! And if roaches make a appearance during people filled opening hours what comes out at night?!?! Ewww
