It's a wonderful Greek restaurant. The atmosphere was amazing, location for the events downtown was great. We brought my grandsons and they too enjoyed the food. They catered to them through out dinner. All our meals were amazing. The wine list was good. A great place. Highly recommend it if you like Greek food. The Mousaka was to die for!

Not worth the hype, the rating, the nothing. Plain regular commercial machinery food with nothing special. Service is slow and the place is dark.

What a disappointment ! I don't know why people rate this place so high. We went for lunch and ordered fried cheese, which was good and an eggplant dip was also good but accompanying pita was spongey. When our second course came -disappointment . Overcooked veggies and awful rice with mushy falafel fried in oil that was changed I don't... More

I enjoyed my meal at George's. Service was friendly and attentive and I was comfortable dining alone. Outdoor seating was very pleasant. Traditional Greek salad was tasty and fresh, and gyro falafel (falafel with gyro and feta inside) was an interesting innovation worth trying.

My wife and I have been to this place several times as we live close by and it never disappoints. The food is always fresh and tastes excellent. I have tried several places that say they serve "Greek" food and they really don't. George's Greek Cafe is genuine. Their Souvlakis, either lamb or chicken are flavored just with the right... More

Food is awesome. Love the Friday night lamb special. We go to the Lakewood location more than any of the others as the parking is easier to get in and out of. We eat here 2-3 times a month.

George's Greek Cafe welcomes you to "a little piece of Greece in Southern California." Our family-owned business is here to provide you with high quality food, craft cocktails, and an authentic Greek dining experience. Our restaurant has remained a favorite among the locals for one reason: we never compromise on our promise to provide fresh and delicious meals in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We continue to follow Mama Rodou's recipes, which were passed down to her from her grandmother. We use only the finest imported ingredients, such as first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil from Greece and premium, hormone-free, grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. We want to extend an open invitation to you to dine at one of our restaurants. Whether you're looking to impress a date with an intimate wine tasting, reconnecting with family over Saganaki Flaming Cheese and lamb chops, or planning the perfect wedding reception for 500 of your closest friends, we are here for you. Come in, and feel like part of the family. OPA!
