Good food, good atmosphere – The food was just as good as other nicer greek restaurants, the atmosphere was great, and the servers were very friendly.
Had a fabulous time! – We went for an early New Years eve dinner and wanted a place that was festive. The food was superb.. everyone in our group had a different meal item and we each raved about the food. I was a bit concerned about the service because of some other reviews but the service was excellent. The music was wonderful, the staff and the customers all got up and danced together. It was the best time ever for very reasonable prices and I love this place!
Tasty Food, Lively, Bit Overpriced – Could use a lighter touch with the lards and oils. Authentic Greek is usually not that rich. Prices are up there, but the place is lively and I loved the galaktobouriko dessert and Greek Coffee.
The worst experience – This is the shadiest, most corrupt restaurant I've ever been to. We picked this restaurant because we wanted something different for our birthday party. It seemed appealing because it provided greek cuisine and dancing. We weren't worried about driving elsewhere. The staff ensured to get my guests drunk and then completely overcharged us with drinks. We were a big group,and the staff conveniently charged us for 8 addtional shots and claimed our guest who had just left had consumed it. Our trustworthy friend confirmed he had not had 8 shots.. The food and the environment was nice, but the ultimate experience was awful. My sister and I had to cough up over two hundred dollars to cover the discrepancy in our accounting and theirs. The owner/manager was incredibly rude and dishonest. I will never go here again, and save yourself the trouble of being ripped off.
Good food, fun atmosphere, expensive prices – The food here is good, yummy and a lot of choices. Also, sometimes in the evenenings, there is music and people start dancing traditional Greek dancing, which is really fun. However, I think the prices are a little steep!
Great atmosphere, AMAZING food – Had a gyro for lunch (i know, not too original) and it was incredible. Someone in the group I was in ordered the mousakka, which was also awesome. Overall, great place, really cool atmosphere
Terrible Customer Service – I called the restaurant on a Saturday afternoon and said, "Hello, I'd like to make a reservation." Before I could state the date or time, a male voice informed me, "We are full tonight" and hung up on me! I have never dined at this restaurant before, nor do I ever want to try again.
My Top 3 Fish Dishes EVER - ( see my reviews for 2 others ) – The food here is off the hook, and it's open all day (unlike most Valley joints, which close after lunch)... I'm addicted to their chicken lemon soup and the FISH! My favorite: grilled swordfish bathed in tomato-caper sauce. It never disappoints, even my picky husband can't complain that it's "too dry." Perfectly crispy on the outside, moist on the inside. And it's a generous portion, I always take half home to enjoy for lunch the next day...
Horrible Customer Service – I had made reservations two days in advance for 2 people on Saturday night. I called the great greek to ask them for their cross street and to tell them I would be a couple minutes late (we got lost). They then asked for my name and said that they didn't have a reservation under my name. They had a reservation under a different name which sounds like my name and I told him oh they probably misunderstood. But the person I spoke with was so rude and told me there was nothing I could do. A good restaurant starts with good customer service and this host was so rude to me even though I DID have a reservation. They should have tried to fit me in or accommodate me some how.....anyways ill never go here again. If you are looking for another GOOD Greek restaurant try Le Petit Greek. They keep their reservations!
no way this is a 9.9 restaurant - my worst service experience in los angeles! – sunday night 8pm. we enter a lively greek restaurant, with a birthdayparty going on. 40 minutes later we finally receive our drinks - water - and eventually the food comes out as well. my husband ordered the chicken athenia, which turned out to be pretty good and i had the combination greek platter (moussaka, stuffed grape leaf, lamb, pastitsio) which was just as good as any greek restaurant can offer, i think nothing special though. we didn't see a busboy at our table at all, our waiter came by three times. to get the order, to bring the food and to get his money. our waiter gave full attention to the girls sitting next to our table who didn't receive their food fast enough. he was complaining about the kitchen staff to them or just trying to get their phone numbers...who knows...
