The "world famous" Great Greek is located next to the "World Famous" liquor store on "World Famous" Ventura Boulevard in "World Famous" Studio City. Perhaps they're all too famous for their own good, because the Great Greek is merely good Greek food.
Upside: easy street parking, really nice service, and live greek music. Huge portions and fairly reasonable prices, and the salads are very tasty.
Downside: some of the food tasted like it was cooked in one of those large cafeteria pans that afternoon and was sitting in a steam table waiting for you to order it. Nothing really came across as particularly fresh and tasty, which is odd because greek food is typically really delicious. The salad was good, but you have to pay extra for pita bread to enjoy the hummus and other saucy specialties.
We ended up walking out very full, but not particularly happy, so I doubt we'd ever go back. However, if you love a lot of food and favor vegetarian options, this might be a good place for you.
Everyone is very nice there, but there was nothing about the food that would entice me to return.
