We ate at the Sofi location at Woodman and Oxnard in Van Nuys. We were staying in the area and were hungry and looking for a place. When we saw the outside, we expected a family restaurant and were pleasantly surprised to find it was Greek food with tablecloths and nice décor. It has only been open a short time but they are associated with a restaurant of the same name downtown. We are by no means experts on Greek food, so I can't speak to the authenticity of the food, but it tasted good. My friend said the lamb chops were the best she had ever eaten. I ordered moussaka but the waiter came back and said they were out of it. Instead, he suggested the pastitisio special (which I would have ordered anyway if I had known they had it). It was very good. The service was good, the waiter was friendly but not overbearing, and I liked the décor. Even the bathroom's décor showed that attention had been given to it. However, we were there at around 7 p.m. on a week night, and there was very little business. There seemed to be a couple of regulars, and a couple of other diners besides ourselves. Before we left, someone (not our waiter) brought us some free bagels (apparently left from breakfast, but that was ok). They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My only real complaint is that when we drove up, a valet rushed to take our car (and charge us $3) even though there were numerous free parking places in the lot, and we could have parked it ourselves in the exact same spot where he parked us.
