Really good! The only thing
Really good! The only thing I would do differently would be order my entree a la carte because the entree plates were way to much food for me or my companion.

While visiting Monterey last
While visiting Monterey last week, my husband and I had dinner at Epsilon's. We enjoy Greek food and Epsilon's did not disappoint. Although not dark and romantic, the ambiance was pleasant with Greek music quietly playing in the background and a quirky wall mural of the Olympian gods and goddesses. My husband enjoyed the dolmades very much, but I found the skinless, boneless chicken dish was a bit dry. If you order an entree, bring a big appetite--the portions are way too large (fine for locals who can take home leftovers, but a bit much for us visitors). We hate to waste food but here was no way we could finish either entrée. Our server, Chris, was most attentive and answered my questions professionally. The baklava was a nice ending.

Overall I liked the restaurant.
Overall I liked the restaurant. The hummus and Tzatziki appetizer was delicious. The grilled lamb filet was OK but not great. Not a good cut of meat. The Combination plate of Pastitsio, Gyros and Amam Bayildi was very good and plenty of food. This is not a gourmet restaurant but then I didn't expect one either. As I said, a nice restaurant.

Great food, great hospitality
Petros the owner was very accomodating, very kind to our toddler. Petros made a special plate just for him with a little bit of everything. He is a picky eater but he loved the gyros, rice, and chicken. Ordered the famous lamb shanks and they were super tender super delicious. Also loved the salad, raisin rice, lentils, and green beans that came with the entree. My wife ordered a spicy beef dish and it was also tender and juicy and delicious. Almost forgot to mention the portions were very generous, you will not leave this place hungry! Lastly, we finished off a wonderful dinner with baklava and a small glass of port. My kid loved the baklava so much I barely got a taste - honey sweet, flaky, nutty, mmm.

Best taramosalata in a long time
Nice restaurant with very friendly staff. Though not the cheapest the food is very good. We especially loved the taramosalata which is not something many Greek-American restaurants know how to make properly. Really enjoyed the traditional main dishes as well.

Lovely lirrle Restaurant
Drove by this restaurant and thought it looked inviting. I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! The people were warm and welcoming. The food was really good quality. I had a almb kabob that was so tender. If I'm in Monterey again I will definitely go back to Epsilon.

Great find in Monterrey
We had a great dinner at this local restaurant. We were with our 3 kids and wanted a place that wasn't full of other tourists. Turned out that this restaurant was walking distance from where we were staying - Portola Hotel. The servers were friendly, the menu was full of choices (including kids items) and the food was delicious! The Bakhlava is a must since it is not too sweet. We enjoyed it and our kids did too! If we are ever back in Monterrey, we will definitely dine there again.

Excellent Greek Food
Wonderful food. The avgolemono sauce on the dolma was perfect. Portions are somewhat large. Ambience was just like a small European bistro.

After having a less than mediocre lunch at a pasta place near the Aquarium, we were in search for something tasty and reasonable. After nosing around a number of websites we came across Epsilon on Open Table. All of the reviews were outstanding and many included rave reviews from families with kids. It was within walking distance from our hotel so we decided to give it a try. Not only were we welcomed warmly, but everyone one was attentive and friendly throughout our dining experience. We have and will continue to recommend Epsilon to those we think will appreciate the fine Greek food they serve....in fact we recommended it to some diners we met at Tommaso's in San Francisco. We have a picky eater and he tried six new foods!

Huge portion and good
Went on a Wednesday night. There were only another couple dinning. Restaurant is quiet, simple decoration. Food is good and the portion is huge. The entree comes with vegetable and starch. We were so full that we could not try and dessert.

Amazing Greek Food
We made a visit to Monterey and Yelped some good eats. Epsilon had some good reviews, so we thought we'd check it out. Simply amazing. Despite no one being near the door just as we were about to walk in, someone saw us and rushed over to welcome us in with a smile. Window seat, informative and funny waiter, food to satisfy every corner of your stomach. All in all the dinner set us back $50. Pretty reasonable considering the size of the salad, the entrée, the baklava, the coffee- we had leftovers for the next day. Next time we're down there, we'll definitely be stopping in.

Dining at Epsilon in Monterey
We visited Monterey recently from San Diego and found this wonderful restaurant that serves very good Greek food. The service was excellent, the staff friendly and the menu is great. Our friend had lamb which was the best he ever had. I had the salmon which was delicious. The rice was also very unique and delicious. We look forward to returning to this gem in downtown Monterey.

The best part of this meal
The best part of this meal was the dip they served with the bread - garlicky and amazing. I ordered the Greek salad and calamari for dinner which is just what I was craving. The salad was great. The calamari was different than anything I have had before - it was almost fried like a wonton - but it was good.

Excellent food and outstanding service for 12 seniors asking for separate checks... We were celebrating a birthday and they adorned the table and gave the birthday diner a delightful complementary dessert.

Epsilon has wonderful food. Authentic Greek! Good service and good location. We stayed for a couple of hours.....laughing and chatting, and were never pressured to leave! It is an excellent restaurant. I've been many times over many years!

A friend and I had a great dinner at Epsilon the other evening. The staff was very attentive without being overbearing. All of the food was amazing and the portions are very generous. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Middle-Eastern food, or food in general.
