I was on business in the area and this restaurant was in the Lincoln Center, which has several restaurants that were recommended by the hotel. The restaurant was pretty busy but we were immediately seated in the outside covered seating area. It was much quieter and they had the radiant heaters so it was very comfortable. My husband was with... More

A little pricey but VERY good! A group of 4 visited for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. My husband thought he didn't like Greek food. Oh yes he does.

Service, taste, atmosphere was beyond good , A nice gem in the town of Stockton, as I had no idea that this place even existed. Worth the drive.

I have been to Papapavlos many times and have never had a bad meal or experience. Stockton does not have allot of trendy gourmet restaurants or great ones for that matter, but Papas is a fine go to restaurant. I meet friends for drinks there and always end up having a meal or an appetizer. It can be a bit... More

I hate the food and the selection sucks. The atmosphere is primary the white race. African Americans are not serviced with respect and looked at as not belonging in such a place.

My husband ordered the assortment of greek dishes so we could try them all. They were horrific and tasted like they had been cooked hours before. They weren't even warmed up. Amazing this place stays busy. People have canged when it comes to eating out; it is no longer for the food but just for the sustenance. What a shame.

When the people of Stockton feel like keeping it classy, they go to Papapavlos. The service is very good. The food is very good. The atmosphere is very good, and the restaurant even has a nice bar area for drinking and dining too. Their hummos is excellent, and is a must try. There is a charge for the hummos (comes... More

I travel to Stockton on business a few times a year. Any trip wouldn't be complete without a stop at this marvelous bar and eatery. Although it is Greek themed you will find something to satisfy any palette. I have tried many of the dishes and can honestly say that every meal was fantastic! Beef, fish, lamb, chicken, meatballs, pasta............all... More

I took a date there and everything was fabulous! Starting with being seated in a location where we could talk and get to know each other to sharing the Tzatziki appetizer, everything was wonderful. Truly great Greek cuisine, some of the best lamb chops (I highly recommend them) and an extensive wine list. The service was also excellent. The wait... More

The only reason that the restaurant didn't receive excellent scores is that the waiter promised us more bread, which would have been really helpful with the dips we ordered. The sole was generous in portion, just lightly breaded, with fantastic mashed potatoes. The appetizer in the sampler were just right, with spanakopita, but the breading on the calamari was a...
