I use to love Petros. But I think the service, quality and overall has gone done. I informed them that it was my husband's b-day. Did not get any happy birthday greeting. Got there and was shown to the table with not much enthusiasm. Had to ask another waiter to get our order for the main course. Just overall experience not the same as before. The portions have gone smaller and they do not provide the bread anymore but the price has gone up.

The service was GREAT as well as the atmosphere. I had the chicken souvlaki with rice and vegetables. It was quite bland. The dessert was excellent. I’ll give the restaurant another try but will order a different entree.

High-end delicious Greek food. Yummy cocktails. We loved everything we ordered (saganaki, Feta Caesar w/grilled shrimp, Pasta w/Lamb)...all easily shareable dishes. Expensive but worth it!

Host interaction was great however that was it.
Asked our server for wine advice in regards to something not sweet and was offered a sweet hellenic wine.

Once I switched to another glass of red it came out as cold as wine from 7-11. Then i let another possibly runner then server comes back and says oh you like wine room temp...

Food comes out i get the Colorado lamb and my lady the sea-bass and guess what everything was cold 0@ LLP dc the fish. Guess that was the theme of the day.

I understand mistakes happen however service and hospitality was lost upon this place this particular day. Sunday 3/21.

The reason why i give this two stars is because not one time did a manager come by and ask whats going on. Server wasn’t fast enough to rectify these issues. Maybe next time.

Petros is always a favorite. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding and the ambience is wonderful. We sat outdoors in the patio/courtyard at a lovely table with a nice cozy warm heater and surrounded by trees with beautiful white lights. A very romantic evening! I had snapper and my husband had the lamb pasta. We shared the calamari appetizer, which was just like it was in Greece.

We wanted to go out for a special dinner and Petros was the perfect choice. Outdoor seating was great (with heaters for when it got chilly). We read that they had a limited menu but there were more than enough choices. The food and service were incredible and the COVID protocol made us feel very comfortable.

Outstanding late lunch early dinner! Our table outside was far away so we thought that service would suffer but it did not at all.
Our first course of yummy dips and flavored pita was amazing. Then the the chicken lemon soup was tasty and brought rest home for lunch the next day. My husbands lamb was perfectly seasoned and cooked. My snapper was so tasty and light. For dessert we shared the filo filled with dark chocolate with vanilla ice cream. So good! Thanks Petros we will be back again soon.

My sister and I had an incredible experience dining at Petros in Manhattan Beach this weekend!
After so long without outdoor dining, we almost forgot how nice it is to have full table service and a lovely meal.
The staff was very friendly. They seemed to be very busy, but everyone was kind and took plenty of time to make us feel special and well taken care of.
We LOVED the shrimp saganaki appetizer, and the dip combo was delicious. Our favorite dip was the cheese dip (kafteri?)
Our server, Chris, had awesome suggestions, and was very attentive.
We finally decided on the chicken parm and meatballs, both of which were delicious! We shared a bottle of Petros Red Blend, and it paired perfectly with our meal.
We were probably too full for desert, but couldn't turn down the hostess' suggestion to try the bougatsa. It was one of the best deserts I've had in a long time!
We will definitely be making reservations for next weekend, and recommending to all of our friends in the South Bay.

10 years ago, Petros was my favorite restaurant. Then slowly they started taking my favorite dishes off the menu. This is the first time I’ve been back in over a year. They used to serve delicious complementary sesame bread, with a delicious dip, but now there is no bread. You have to buy a side of pita bread. Very ordinary .

The food was good, but not for the price. They used to have specials based on fresh fruit in season, but not this time.

The vodka cocktail was tasty and unusual though.

Normally I would chalk up a lackluster menu to Covid, but the food starting declining way before the pandemic

We were so excited to have a nice meal out when the restaurants finally reopened! We arrived for our reservation and had to wait until another party who got there a few minutes before us (with no reservation) got a table. We waited about 25 minutes. The waitress hardly spoke to us, she did however continue to drop refilled drinks to our table. My water refill came in a chipped glass. When I asked for a new one, the glass was taken without a word of surprise or apology. We finished our appetizer before we were asked for our entrée order. We were never asked if we were alright or needed anything, we had to flag workers down to ask questions. The kicker, one of the dishes we ordered (Mousaka - a hellenic dish layered with eggplant, ground beef, tomatoes & homemade bechamel) had no eggplant, no tomato and no layering of any kind. It was clearly just a dish of ground meat, the bechemel might have been on the top, but it was not good. We tried to ask the server about it because we thought we received the wrong dish. The server just shrugged and said "they just don't put much eggplant in it" and that it would be removed from the bill. This is not what we were after. We were very, very disappointed. We want to support our local businesses but we will never go back to this spot. Bad service, bad food.
