Description: George's Greek Cafe welcomes you to "a little piece of Greece in Southern California." Our family-owned business is here to provide you with high quality food, craft cocktails, and an authentic Greek dining experience. Our restaurant has remained a favorite among the locals for one reason: we never compromise on our promise to provide fresh and delicious meals in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We continue to follow Mama Rodou's recipes, which were passed down to her from her grandmother. We use only the finest imported ingredients, such as first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil from Greece and premium, hormone-free, grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. We want to extend an open invitation to you to dine at one of our restaurants. Whether you're looking to impress a date with an intimate wine tasting, reconnecting with family over Saganaki Flaming Cheese and lamb chops, or planning the perfect wedding reception for 500 of your closest friends, we are here for you. Come in, and feel like part of the family. OPA!

This is the second time I have eaten here. We were greeted with a hug by George the owner. The wait staff was attentive, informed and friendly. To say the food was delicious and generous and presented artistically would be an understatement. This is a five star all the way and reasonable,too. I can't help be say GO for a true treat!!! Only draw back is they are so busy it was noisy.

This restaurant is our second home. The lamb chops are the finest I've ever had anywhere in the country. Put it with their outstanding Greek salad, and you'll be in another world. Really. I also have frequently had the kleftico (oven-baked leg of lamb). It comes with the yummiest potatoes and a small portion of the Greek salad. George's also has its own private label wine. A great value. The patio is dog-friendly. A big deal to our family.

One of my greek favorites locally. My two sons enjoy the food as well. A good pick for the family to get away from burgers and pizza.
