This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Melding the organic bounty of California with the traditional foods and flavors of Greece...honey, olive oil, herbs, classic cheeses...and drawing upon family recipes, Pathos is a truly genuine representation of the food you would find being enjoyed by everyday Greeks.

With a focus on a simple ingredient, fully organic fare and a well-curated, but accessible wine list (organic | biodynamic | sustainable), we want to bring to Berkeley a true taste of Greece. Please join us in our rustic, yet well-appointed dining room...surrounded by the warmth of our wood-fired oven...for a lively, engaging dining experience with which we are sure you will be pleased.

Was closed and they did not even call to let us know, even though we had a reservation

Musts are spanakopita, meatballs, lamb, moussaka, baklava and yogurt dessert.
Don't forget their amazing coffee as well.

Wonderful - again! First time was out of curiosity. Second time, a week later, was for a birthday. We did small plates the first time to sample different things, and went with entrees the second time. Both were very good. We are carnivores, but our dining companions are vegetarians, and all of us were pleased. Specifics - octopus, pita bread, spanakopita, salads, trout, lamb chops, hummus, desserts. Service was attentive w/o being over-bearing. They expect dinner to take a couple hours, which we like. Leisurely, tasty, comfortable - great place!

This is a wonderful Greek restaurant. Everything we had was delicious. All local ingredients are used. It is very authentic Greek food, but elevated and creative. It is as good as Kokkari in SF. The service was excellent. It is a beautiful space. I highly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

Delicious, creative, varied, no rush, attentive and knowledgeable service, laid back ambiance, cool kitchen bar ... Flat out delightful dining experience. Had all small plates so as to explore the options. Next time - soon - the lamb shank.

PATHOS is my new favorite restaurant!!! The service is excellent, and the food is incredible. Everything is ORGANIC, perfectly spiced and cooked to perfection. The ambience is warm and friendly, the chairs are VERY comfortable. They have delicious wines!!! IT’S THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!

The food was good but just expensive for what it was. There was nothing that was so spectacular we would spend that much for it again. The ambiance was nice and their cocktails were really good. We would definitely go again for drinks if we were in the neighborhood. Just be careful if they ask you if you would like something - they charge for everything. We were asked if we wanted more pita and we said yes.....twice. It turns out that is $4 each. We were asked if wanted to add a fourth lamb chop to the plate which we assumed was extra but didn't realize it would be $11. It makes sense since the plate was $37 for three lamb chops so a fourth is about a third of the price but it just made for a very expensive plate.

The Bay Area is somewhat lacking in good Greek but Pathos is excellent. Love this place. Kind of expensive but very yummy.

Food mixed; some items good, some meh, servers very nice, but timing seriously off; so much so that the food did not override it.

Great experience!! Nick and his staff provide exceptional food, phenomenal service, and a fun atmosphere. It's an excellent spot for special occasions, date night, or for just a good, Greek meal with nice people. You won't be disappointed, especially if you try the Htapodi!

As good as Kokkari Estiatorio, but without the need to go into the city, and Pathos has better (organic) quality ingredients. Try the lamb shank with farro.

Server & food was excellent but the price was not commensurate with the overall meal. Also - their "fig" salad had only one fig. One. It was a very good fig. Regardless, I don't feel it warranted the title of fig salad.
