I was not impressed with the food, I was expecting a better quality of food, but I guess I set my standards too high. I would rather go to Luna Grill

Good food, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere. There's lots of outdoor seating, and plenty of room inside if you prefer. The bartenders are friendly and the atmosphere is convivial. Try the lamb chops appetizer during Happy Hour when they're discounted.

It has awesome food, attentive staff and a beautiful patio for dining al fresco. Locals and tourists alike said it was great. I'd go there again for sure. Greek salad and falafel sandwich were very filling and the pita bread was soft and fluffy.

George may not be there to greet you personally, but one of the staff certainly will. The menu is quite varied and everything that I have eaten there is tasty and well presented. The woman who runs the restaurant is very friendly and personable and wants to ensure that you have a positive experience while dining at George's.

One of the best restaurants on Pine Avenue. The Chicken Kabob for $13.90 is very good. I like to substitute a salad for the vegetables and humus for yogurt dip. My wife tried their lamb chops (4 pieces) for $21.75, It came with vegetables and rice. She thought the lamb chops were very good despite the fat not being timed... More

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!
