    This was my first visit and it certainly won't be the last. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was great. We started with some of the dips which were really good, especially the eggplant. They are known for lamb chops which were fabulous. Cooked and seasoned perfectly and they melted in my mouth. They cook their rice in chicken stock which made it realy flavorful. Dimitri, the owner came by to check on everything and afer our meal, sat down had a drink and chatted with us for awhile. It really was a great evening and I can't wait to go back and try other items.

    Dined on 6/30/2012
    The food is wonderful, portion sizes good, delivered quickly. On our 2nd time here, once again the pastitso with grilled veggies & rice and avgolemeno soup with greek salad were all fresh and satisfying. Sadly, this visit wasn't as pleasant as our last due to where we were seated. On our OpenTable reservation, we requested a table where we could sit side by side, not opposite each other. When reminded of this when we arrived, the host said, "No problem," yet the seater took us to a 2-top table where we'd have to sit opposite each other. When we asked again, he walked us past a 4-top to a small table in the back, where we were endlessly passed by bussers with crates of glasses and trash and heard tons of kitchen chatter our whole meal. :(

    This is a fun place. Lot's of energy. The food is solid. I had the stuffed steak and it was done perfectly. My fellow diners had more traditional Greek fare and were very pleased. Portions are large. Had the house red...not great, but a good table wine for a relaxed evening. Service was great and the waitress was full of personality. We had a great time...Opa!

    We really enjoyed our dinner. The waitress and waiters were great. I would recommend it to everyone. They have a large selection to choose from so there is definately something for everyone. Good portions and everything was fresh and hot. We will be returning soon in the near future, as we love good Greek food.

    George's Greek Cafe is a great place for some quality Greek food at a reasonable price. The atmosphere can be quite hectic at times (everyone yells opah every time they serve the saganaki appetizer), but the service is very friendly and they treat you like family there. I would definitely recommend their lamb chops, which were flavorful and tender.

    it was a fun dinner, starting with a great flaming cheese appetizer. We had the lamb, chicken. Both were full of flavor and hard to say which was better. Our tomato soup, with a spicy kick, was the best ever. I believe we found our new favorite place.

    The service and food were great; the portion size was large such that everyone except my husband brought home extras. The only drawback, and this wasn't the restaurant's fault, was that a car parked right outside had it's horn going off repeatedly. I think, however, when dining at a location that opens up to the outside, that is always a risk.

    Enjoyed the relaxing Mediterranean ambiance with the family-friendly feel. Recommend the Dolmathes (grape leaves stuffed with rice, ground beef, tomato, and spices and served with delicious tzantiziki sauce) for a flavorful yet not too filling appetizer. For entrees, my husband and I shared the Mousaka (sort of a Greek-style lasagna with roasted eggplant, potato, spiced ground beef, and bechamel sauce) and Souvlakia Lamb (skewered, marinated, grilled, and paired with tzantiziki sauce), both of which came with a delightful Greek salad and rice (a little too salty though). Oh, the dessert!! We chose a baked phyllo dough creation that was filled with a wonderful (not overly sweet) baked custard served with vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!!!

    I celebrated my Birthday with my husband, two boys ages (10 & 11) and my sister and had a nice time. The traffic was a little annoying at times but everything else was fine. The food was great. In fact, my 11 yr old son was just saying again how much he loved George's salmon dish. I Had the stuffed salmon and it was so delicious. We cant wait to try another location. I'm hoping the food will be just as good! We use to dine at. The Blue Agean in Laguna few years back. I REALLY ENJOYED their food, live greek band and the ambiance there. Wish they were still around or wish Georges hadlive greek music. That would make it more festive.

    We love George's for a casual night out on 2nd Street in Long Beach. It's small, noisy and busy, which makes for an energetic astmoshpere. After going there for several years, I'd love to see a few more non-traditional Greek items on the menu but all in all the food is great. Their lamb chops are the best in Long Beach and portions are generous.
