Excellent food and great service

The halibut was great. The service was excellent. The only criticism I have is that the dining room is noisy. The patio is a good option if the weather isn't too warm. Overall this is one of the best dining options in Stockton for a nice night out dinner.

We have been coming to Papapavlos for years, the food and service have always been good. Tonight they lost our order, our waitress checked the kitchen because it had been so delayed and they said they had lost it. We asked that our leftovers be boxed, after waiting 15 minutes we asked our waiter about it and she was told... More

One of my favorite restaurants. No one does lamb better. Their Greek salad that comes with dinner is so good, Cool and tangy. By the time you eat that and the warm Pita bread you are full. I haven't had a bad entre there. All the Greek dishes are amazing as is the Mediterranean pasta and the filet of sole.... More

Papapavlos has always been one of my favorite restaurants in Stockton. I make it a point to dine there at least 2-3 times a year, traveling in from Lodi. Their meals are delicious and the ambiance is high energy. If you enjoy Greek cuisine, Papapavlos is a sure bet in Stockton

They do lamb like nobody else. Large chops or brochette or gyro. Lamb medallions also in a pleasant atmosphere with great service, and the greek salad that comes with each meal is excellent.

The ambiance surrounds you the minute you enter the restaurant and the service was immediate and warm. The selections of entrees is very "Greek" and incredibly savory. The wait staff was most attentive, the wine was perfect, and we all left very satisfied an very full. Wonderful meal in a wonderful spot!

I first encountered this restaurant when they catered for an event at which I was singing. We performers got to pick over the leftover buffet after the guests had left, and even the cold remainders were SO GOOD! I've gone back several times, with my friends, with my parents, and on a date. Their quasi Greek-Italian food never fails to... More

The pita bread is the best part. I liked the dinner but it was expensive for what it was. At least we had the Costco deal and it ended up being not so bad. I would go back again for sure because good Greek restaurants are hard to find!

I've been there 3 times, now, for different occasions included a business group private luncheon. The service is always friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. I always enjoy restaurants that are not part of a "chain" and this one is very popular among local Stockton-ites. The menu is varied and has something for everyone.

We have been to Papapavlos many times prior to their new location and love their food. The portions are smaller and pricier since they have moved (several years now), which is a dissapointment but to be expected in this economy. Wonderful giros! Lively bar...and resturant. Nice decor and ambience. Will return, not as often as before.
