“Get the grilled octopus, even if you don't like octopus!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

I never thought I would like grilled octopus but it was amazing! Pathos has only been open a few months but the service was extremely friendly, the wine was outstanding, the pita bread was home-made--so much better than the store-bought stuff served almost everywhere else. My only criticism is that the moussaka should be made with lamb, not beef. It was jam-packed on a Wednesday night, so apparently the good news is spreading.

“Good Greek in Berkeley”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Nice to have a new, good Greek restaurant in Berkeley. Have eaten there 3+ times, and service and food are consistent and very good. Simple, delicious, varied menu allows one to chose small plates or larger dinners. Good salads, great cocktail choices, wine list could be expanded some, esp. glass options. Dessert, while good, could also be expanded. Beautiful interior, with relaxed, elegant feel. I look forward to more development of the menu, but its good right now. Nice for a large group, and also for a single diner. Will go back again. Wish they would open for lunch.

“Terrific food and service!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Three of us had dinner at Pathos. Overall service was incredibly attentive from the greeter to the fellow who opened the door for us as we left. The waitress was fantastic. Very professional, enthusiastic and, most importantly, knowledgeable. Particularly about the wine list which features many unfamiliar Greek wines.

The moussaka was yummy. Served with roasted vegetables that were perfectly cooked. Beet salad was colorful and flavorful - interesting mix of ingredients. Lentil soup was tasty but nothing special. Whole sea bass was a big hit. They kitchen staff made a special effort to bring out the head when my husband said it was disappointed that it had been removed. He wanted the cheeks.

“New Greek on Shattuck”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

This is a charming, warm place. The decor is modern and inviting, and the staff are exceptionally friendly and efficient. The food is very good--particularly the dishes done in their wood-burning oven.

A pointer--they're closed for dinner on Monday and Tuesday, so don't show up those nights. As I did.

“Phenomenal!”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Had an amazing meal at Pathos before heading to the Berkeley Rep last week. Food is fresh and delicious, service is outstanding and the decor is modern but very comfy. Take a seat at the bar and watch the kitchen in action. Love this place, will definitely return.
