The parking is awful. I drove in from Orange County almost 3 hours before my event and was still 20 minutes late because of the gridlocked traffic. No one helps you if you are confused about where your seat is, and the seat numbering is very confusing with two tiers of seats with exactly the same numbers/letters. The food is outrageously expensive. I guess they want to give their clientele the full you-are-cattle/airline experience. Yes, I understand they are the only place to see some artists, so they don't have to give a crap about what we think.

The Greek Theatre is astonishing. Close to 2000 years old. Really exciting. The views from the top of. the town, Mount Etna and the Med just cannot be beat. The visit c ostg peanuts and (because it the off season, I guess) crowd was negligible. Completely fab.

Bonobo was FANTASTIC as always and he was the saving grace for this *Greek Theater* experience, alongside his illustrious band, of course. UNFORTUNATELY, the FOOD was generally dry, overcooked, and was pretty terrible overall. We got the chicken tenders, grilled cheese, etc.

All of it was aggressively mediocre... at best.

Not sure if the kitchen/chef staff last night (10-22-22) had a pulse, but if they did, it was a *heavily intoxicated* pulse.

This venue has a curfew so if the singer of the band you are going to see talks to much they will not let them finish their set. The show will end exactly on time. Nice place but not worth it when faced with the curfew.

I prepaid parking online for lot A, B, or H (cash only if you pay on the day). Lot A is the first lot as you go up Vermont. Lot B is the closest to the theatre entrance and was easy to get out of even stack parked (we arrived at 5:15 pm for a 8pm show), lot H is on the other side of the theatre farther up the hill. Parking at the Griffith Park pony rides and taking the shuttle is cheaper but you can't bring stuff into the theatre so be prepared. Picnic tables (20+) are available near and across from lot B but bring a table cover. Across the street is Franklin's Cafe & Market where you can purchase beer, wine, coffee, snacks and sit at a lovely outdoor patio area. Street vendors cook and sell hotdogs if you're brave enough to buy from them. I prefer to park at the venue so I can bring my meal etc., take stuff back to the car and then enter the venue. Or you can bring chairs and sit near your car if you're parked on the grass. While we sat at the tables the shuttle bus drop off was about 30 minutes apart. Keep in mind nothing but a sealed bottle of water is permitted in the theatre (besides a purse), no SLR cameras allowed. Bring a cushion if you need one, no cushion rentals. The theatre is great because its not too big so most every seat is a good one. There is no cell service in the area. Bathrooms are huge and don't take long.

Having never been to the Greek I needed to learn more about it for the Sam Hunt concert at 7PM. It was my daughters first concert and suffering headaches I searched and searched for info about parking in case we needed to leave early. Reading that most parking was stacked was not a good option so we went with the shuttle hoping we could get back to our car if need be, via Uber. We learned once we got to the shuttle parking it only ran 30 minutes before the end of the concert, this wouldn't help if we needed it. There is a large area inside gated area with concessions, benches and standing heaters that would be a great area if she needed a break. Having bought concert band member grade ear plugs, she made it through the whole concert with no headache!
PARKING: Shuttle was easy $10. Shuttles were DASH, the city buses so sat lots of people. I prepurchased but it didn't seem to speed things much as they had to look up my name and amount of people. No line to get it to the shuttle lot at 6:30 and parking in a dirt lot, 2 minute walk to the shuttle and waited about 10 minutes for it to fill before we left. Shuttle was about 5 minute drive from venue and just a 3 minute walk to get to metal detector, which took only a few minutes also. At end of concert we were on the first shuttle (there were 3 buses waiting) and the parking lot was literally a 1 minute from the 5 south freeway.
SEATING: When other posts say not a bad seat, what that means to me is that you are able to see the artist and he/she doesn't look like an ant. We were at the front of section C. I was able to see Sam good enough to tell he had a beard and hat not the color of his eyes. Next time I would go for section B or even the sections on the side. There were two big-ish screens but I feel that they could have been larger. That said, while sitting in the seat and looking at the stage, I would go for the right side because it is closest to the exit, they are even number seats. We were able to get up at the last encore and stand in the isle on the stairs and make a very quick exit and onto the very first shuttle.
Great place to see a concert!!

The elevator taking us up a level got stuck and was clearly in poor repair. The staff did their best to be helpful, the problem was with the facility itself. There are an enormous amount of steps in this lovely place to see a concert but be forewarned if you have mobility issues.

The Greek Theater is a beautiful venue. A few tips..
Try the dine and dash option to avoid the hideous stacked parking. You can pre dine at participating restaurants and they shuttle you right out front of the Greek and then pick you up and return you to the restaurant after the ahow.

Excellent facility. Great visuals and sound, considering it's 5800+ people outdoors. Two items of caution: 1) As it's outdoors, make sure you're going to be dressed warmly enough. 2) Acess is basically via one mainly residential road only so make sure you give yourself PLENTY of time to get there.

I love the intimate feel of this venue. It's easy enough to get in and out of the venue with a little forethought. Parking in Lot H is non-stacked and was $25. We walked out during the last song and beat the rush - were able to drive right out with no traffic. We could still hear the song on the way to the car. Totally worth leaving a little early to avoid traffic.

Sat in Section B Row F and was totally happy with the view. Bathrooms were right there - clean and no line if you don't go during intermission/rush times.

There are several options for bars, beer carts, and concessions. Drinks/prices were typical for a concert venue. Chicken fingers were surprisingly very good.

I really need to get to the Greek more often.
