A word from Le Petit Greek
The food is plainly some of the best Mediterranean cuisine in Los Angeles. There is an award winning wine list from all over the world including an unparalleled selection of Greek wines. The entrees are impeccably fresh and light. The signature of the house, delectable baby rack of lamb simply melts in your mouth and the daily fish specials are hand picked by the owners each morning.
A meal can also easily be made from the incredible selection of Mezedes (appetizers) and salads. Come let Le Petit Greek bathe you in the warmth and flavor of the magical Greek Islands.
It will beckon you to return again and again.

    What could be better than a cool glass of pale golden retsina, warm pita bread and taramasalta to start a perfect lunch? The bountiful avgolemono soup hit all the taste buds and could have adequately served as a main course. We split an order of mousaka and a special salad topped with broiled calamari which was sensational, We ate too much to still want dessert, we tooft-overs home to savor later.

    Food here has always been good to excellent, as has the service. Wine selection at reasonable prices is excellent. Has become more expensive over the last few years. Pasta with three shrimp was way too expensive at somewhere between $28-$35.

    Really enjoyed our experience at Le Petit Greek. Our group of four all order Rack of Lamb and although we ordered it medium plus it came slightly undercooked. They graciously fired it up a little longer and it was just right. Very generous portions. My husband had a special request due to stomach issues and they complied to all his wishes. Would definitely go back again.

    I've been coming here for years, my wife now loves it as well, and we discovered a close Greek American friend considers it the best Greek food in LA. It's one of those restaurants that has an upscale yet home-like feel, and the variety of dishes and quality of each is top notch. I highly recommend this place to anyone who likes Mediterranean food, adventure, or just a breath of comfort and flavor.

    Good honest food. All the usual Greek appetizers are fresh and tasty. Meatballs are especially so. Many choices for main courses - something for everybody. Our whole large party was happy with everything. A nice refreshing change from over-sauced or pretentious cookery.

    We were so disappointed not only in the food which compares badly to other greek options in town but by the service which was sloppy, and casual. Olives and pita took forever. The waiter barely listened to our questions or order before whisking off. He was arrogant and hasty. It was Sunday night and appeared to be the manager serving us so perhaps he did not feel he had to be a server but he really made bad impression.

    the good reviews for this place did not match with my experience. We got a table right away, the waitress was nice, What happened after that was nothing to write home about. We had to ask for bread x2 before we got it. The food was so-so. I ordered the dinner sampler which was a special. Believe me it was NOT special. My friend ordered fish which tasted more like it's been swimming in lemon. Very limited items in the menu to choose from, mostly chicken. And the price is ridiculous!!! I wouldn't go back.

    Not generally a big fan of Greek cuisine, I took a friend's recommendation with some trepidation. However, Theo and his team set my fears at ease and completely won me over. Our party enjoyed a delicious meal and top-notch, warm, attentive, completely professional hospitality. Everything arrived at the table with lovely, appetizing presentation, perfectly prepared/cooked, with just the right amount of pizzazz in the seasoning, and in generous portions. Our wine selection was a spectacular accompaniment to both the meat and seafood selections comprising our appetizers and main courses, and an amazing deal considering its vintage and quality. Even the notoriously finicky eater in our party was won over!

    This restaurant is really expensive for what and where it is. The food is only ok and the steak skewers were not good and not cooked as ordered. It took a while for someone to come to take our order, to get our order and to clear our dishes. So no neighborhood charm in terms of service, ambiance or pricing. We will definitely not go back.

    If you're considering lunch meeting near the Hancock Park and Paramount Studio's areas then try this restaurant. Their food id excellent. The staff were very attentive but a little bit slow on delivering the main course. There is no valet parking so make sure you be there half hour before lunch reservations so you can find parking.

    I was in LA on business and wanted to try something other than the hotel food. The egg o lantern stuffed with feta had gotten rave reviews and I concur - it was excellent! The grape leaves were a bit disappointing because the leaves were too tough. Octopadi was delicious. Overall, good experience!

It is in a cute section on Larchmont, and you have a choice of inside and out. I sat inside by the window, and I was ever so comfortable. Could see the action on the street, and enjoy my friends in a conversation.

    I love Lamb! I was excited about the special Sat. Eve, I ordered it cooked medium. It was very very tough for $33.00 I was not happy when the waiter just said huh. Then ignored the fact that I was not happy with my meal. Don't order the lamb! If you do make sure they cook it correctly . Everything else was nice. Appetizers, wine, atmosphere.

    Set in bustling, charming Larchmont Village, I can't imagine a better place for a lovely lunch and glass of wine! Even familiar dishes like hummus with pita or salad with salmon seemed freshly reinvented here. I'm always looking for where to go when I find myself in this neighborhood... and at last I've found "the" spot!

    I have always loved the Larchmont area for lunch and would take advantage of it while working at Paramount or Sunset Gower. Le Petit Greek is an excellent place for good food, service and ambience. I am Greek decent and can vouch for the food but you always feel like family there as well. Their outdoor seating area is perfect for taking in the area and it's people without having either them or the traffic sitting with you. All-together, one of my favorite places.

    My husband is Greek and we fell in love with authenticity of the restaurant, both in terms of food and atmosphere. Our Server spoke Greek and that was an extra treat for my husband. The menu choices are reflective of the culture, plus lovely salads and....apitzizers to delight! The chef makes a bernaise lemon sauce that is out of sight but definitely requires giving up some calories for the day. We will return.

    Better than Sofi, but that's not saying much. Gigantes were homemade which is more than most places but still lacking in rich flavor and overcooked. Keftides were somewhat soggy and heavy. Tzaziki was good as was the Taramasalata but could have used a bit more fish egg flavor. Dolmades again points for home made, but filling was insipid rice mix. Service was quite good and unlike some other greek places the restaurant is run by Greek Nationals. We don't think we will go back.
