We have been here several special occasion times and rave about the lamb loin medallions. Outstanding! Service is also great. We'll be back!

Outstanding Food and Service
We definitely enjoyed everything about the restaurant from the high level of service and the excellent food selection. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and it was nice that the staff acknowledged our special night. We will definitely be returning and referring other's to enjoy the restaurant as much as we did.Excellent food & fine selection and the entire staff was truly amazing!

The food and the atmosphere
The food and the atmosphere are its strong points. I always recommend starting everything off with the saganaki "flaming cheese." The casseroles are excellent and there are different varieties. If you are not sure which one to get, go for the combination plate. Lastly, the restaurant has a good selection of Greek desserts. I will definitely be coming back.

A Real Suprise
We had dinner there the other night with a friend who was in Stockton for a brief time. I found Papavalo's on Open Table and made a reservation. We live some distance away so I was totally unfamiliar with Stockton area restaurants. I can't say enough how wonderful our dinner was from the flaming cheese appetizer to the pistachio coated salmon to the baklava cheesecake everything was perfect. Our server Jenny and her assistant met our every request with a smile and both were extremely efficient. We already have plans to return as soon as possible.

Went to Papapavlo's for my mothers birthday. Food was a excellent and service was awesome. Only negative thing was our table was very small for four!! But we worked around it and had a great time.

I took my parents here for an anniversary lunch. The service was great and we all enjoyed our meals. The menu is BIG with something for everyone. Our waiter was a doll and took wonderful care of us! Do make a reservation...... The place is BUSY!!

I went with a friend to celebrate our birthdays. We both love Greek food so we knew Papapavlos would be the place to go. The meal started with a couple of margaritas and the combination appetizer plate. Next came the Greek salads - oh how I love the feta cheese and kalamata olives! By the time our entrees came, both of us were pretty full already. My friend had the gyros plate and I had the lamb chops (med rare). We ended taking most of our entrees home, as well as a couple pieces of baklava that we didn't have room for anymore. All of the food was truly exceptional. Even the next day when I heated up my lamb chops and rice pilaf with veggies in the oven, the lamb was still just melt in your mouth tender and perfectly pink. YUM-O.

Fine first visit
Our table was ready and even had a highchair placed there for out grandchild.
Most excellent service for our group and everyone enjoyed his or her meal. The little one loved the pita bread.

the owner/hostess does not
the owner/hostess does not appear very friendly or customer oriented, but if you can get by that, the servers are great and the food is well prepared. Great Greek food!

Had received a Gift certificate for this resturant, would have never tried it but glad we did ! Don't know if I would go again only because of the price :/ but the steak is awesome without the sauce and the pizza is amazing!

Great, as always!
We were there with some friends for my husband's birthday and it was great, as usual. They even brought my husband a nice little dessert, with a candle, and didn't sing - it was perfect!

We dined at Papapavlo's to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection, and my mixed seafood grill salad was excellent. The only disappointment was our appetizer - we usually have the hummus, but this time decided to try something different, so we ordered the bruschetta. The tomatoes were warm, and the bread was just barely toasted. Not what we expected. Our server surprised us with baklava for dessert, and it was the perfect ending to our meal.

Loved the lamb chops here but ...
I can't wait to come up from LA to feast on the awesome lamb chops here. On my last visit on 23 Aug, the lamb chops were thin and not as juicy as the previous 3 times. Hope it was just a anomaly. Will give it a try again next time .... The wine selections continued to terrific ... kudos to the sommelier.

Our first time and we'll be coming
Really good food - come with an appetite or considered sharing...the portions are LARGE! Not only did our dinners fill us up, they tasted super for lunch the next day too! The crab cake appetizer was meaty and delicious!

We used the Chardonnay room. private room for party of 8 but it would seat 10 comfortably. Our forth time here. Staff was excellent. Food was great. Mixed drinks were good. Returned a few drinks that were not made to what we were expecting and they were happily corrected and replaced to our liking. Very satisfied with service and overall experience. Speed of food delivery was good. Large menu offerings to choose from. Recommend the lamb chops! and any sea food dish, and any appetizer.

Fun With Friends
We had a delicious dinner on a Sat. eve. The macadamia nut encrusted halibut special was almost sold out, so the waiter made sure one was saved for me, even though the rest of our party was not ready to order their entrees yet. All four of us enjoyed our wine and meals. One in our group said the rice pilaf was a bit too salty. My only complaint was that we had reservations, but still had to wait about 20 after our reserved time to be seated. Fortunately, we were with pleasant company. AND the flaming cheese is always a hit!

Service was good, it seems
Service was good, it seems there is lots of help, although this is the first high end restaurant where we were not asked if we wanted course black pepper on our salads, and the noise level was a little bit on the high decibels . Other than that, the food was great.

Excellent food, private dining room to conduct meeting, superb service. I will host a larger group at Papapavlo's in the very near future.
