Superb appetisers

For me the appetisers are sufficiently big to order 3 and share and that be my entire meal. The garden seating is wonderful although I find the Greek music a little on the repetitive side. I've eaten both octopus and lamb here, both good, and have eaten here twice with a Greek friend who loves... read more

Just returned back to our hotel after a lovely meal at Sofi. Our Hotel is on Wilshire Boulevard and after a busy day of sightseeing and fighting hangovers, we decided to visit somewhere within walking distance. We also fancied Greek food so Sofi was our first choice, despite the lack-lustre reviews on Trip Advisor. We sat outside in the secluded... More

Had a terrific dinner at this restaurant. Our server was great and recommended a wine for my wife and beer for me that was from Greece. Dinner was lamb and was delicious. The atmosphere was nice, I felt like I was in Europe at times.

Let me start with this caveat. As a non-eater of meat, I am unqualified to tell you about any of the dishes containing lamb or beef. What I can tell you is that the vegetarian meze platter was pretty close to exquisite, the eggplant dish being the most delicious thing I ate anywhere all week, and I eat out a... More

Very close to the Farmer's Market at 3rd and Fairfax in LA, this restaurant has been here quite a while, but unless you look closely for the sign, you'll miss it. However, follow the path and you'll find the most charming and romantic restaurant with great Greek food. It has inside and outside seating, but we prefer the very nice... More

My favorite greek restaurant. The restaurant has recently had a redo and was closed for two months. It is in an old house behind the shops on Third. It is hard to find. You go down a small pathway where you find the gates to the restaurant. There is an open courtyard as well as indoor seating. My favorite dish... More

We ate at the Sofi location at Woodman and Oxnard in Van Nuys. We were staying in the area and were hungry and looking for a place. When we saw the outside, we expected a family restaurant and were pleasantly surprised to find it was Greek food with tablecloths and nice décor. It has only been open a short time... More

We sat on the patio and that was our first mistake as the tables were dirty. The chairs were filthy and there was bird waste caked on the table and the surroundings. Overall, the food was poorly prepared and foreign material, not food, were found in our meal. The plates and silverware were not completely clean either. A kitchen assistant... More

We used to come here all the time, years ago. We were excited to come back with a Bloomspot deal. Our order: saganaki - very greasy and salty, taramosalata - very salty, pastitio - dry, youvetsi - we both wanted this, but thankfully, one of us didn't order it. Usually with a braised lamb shank, you only need a fork,... More

A Groupon offer reminded us of this place, which we had not visited for a long time. The courtyard was lovely, the restaurant quaint, the food was simply awful, overcooked, mushy vegetables, sea basss that was actually tough, it had been cooked for so long, stale dolmas. Service was strange. Our waitress must have sensed our disappointment, and the more... More
