This is a very small restaurant and buried between other shops. Very limited outdoor dining and very difficult for parking. Parking is street parking only and metered. Decor is very Greek in traditional blue and white. Surprisingly extensive menu for such a small place, featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner. Would assume that breakfast and lunch are their main traffic times. We were the only people in the restaurant for dinner the evening we went. Service was good, food was good, not exceptional, but good basic Greek food. If you're looking for an introduction to Greek food this is a good place to go, not if you're looking for upscale Greek food. The Saganaki was one of the best we've had in the many Greek restaurants we've eaten in. The meat domades were good, the filling had a good taste and good seasoning, though heavy in grape leaves wrapping. The chopped Gyro salad had plenty of lettuce and other salad fixings along with a plenty of Feta and a good dressing, but the gyro meat was thin sliced and there was a very small portion of meat on the salad. They have a good wine list with plenty of overpriced Greek wines and an unrealistic corkage fee for a restaurant of this type at $20, even with bringing a Greek wine, not on the menu. If in the area, we would consider going again, but if we're going specifically for Greek cuisine, Stephen's Greek or the Great Greek run circles around Delphi. For just a quick meal and a taste of Greece, this would be a good introductory place to dine.
Wow, what a great experience! The service was good, and the food was very tasty. Also, decent portions and left very full. Highly recommend the gyro.
Excellent quality with real greek authenticity and a passionate proprietor.
Delphi is a family run Greek restaurant which we have been to several times. The food is usually very good. This time, however, I had a shrimp and it was overcooked and dry. Everyone is entitled to a bad day. We will go back.
Food and service were as good as I remembered it from times before!
Attentive service and excellent Greek food at this Westwood Blvd. restaurant. Very attractive restaurant, surprisingly quiet. One drawback is limited parking on the street. Recommend the traditional Greek chicken/rice/lemon soup, avgolemono, the moussaki, the souklavi and and excellent huge portion of grilled trout.
A proud, attentive owner, great service, reasonable wine prices, excellent lamb dishes, and a noise level that permitted 2 old buddies to catch-up without shouting.
Delicious food. Great service. Such a great place for family, friend or work gatherings!
It´s your basic Greek restaurant. The meals we have eaten there have ranged from good to very good. That also applies to the service. If someone in that área wants some Greek food, we would recommend it, especially since there isn´t another one within 5 miles.
The food is very authentic and delicious. The portions are large, the ambience is great, it almost feels like you're visiting Greece. Service is terrific. The lamb is especially good.
We enjoyed our meal in this quiet place. The menu has great variety of Mediterranean choices!
The owner was there and could not have been nicer, but our entrees were just okay. Two greek salads, one with falafel and one with chicken gyro. One falafel plate. One chicken skewers plate. The last one was pretty good, but the falafels were hard as a rock and not particularly well-flavored, not a great portion of gyro on the salad, and both salads were cut up in pieces too big with way too much oil. We did order an appetizer platter of Greek dips, which was delicious, especially their version of baba ganoush. My friend said it well, "there are just too many restaurants to get away with being mediocre." I hope with this review the owner checks in with his chef to make some improvements. He was so nice and we want his restaurant to do well!
I highly recommend this very good neighborhood restaurant! The food and service were very good, and the portions were very generous!
I wanted a satisfying meal where I could conduct business maters that was convenient and not a grab-and-go spot. Delphi's full menu was a great surprise and my entree was delicious. Highly recommend the Flaming Cheese appetizer! Now that I know where it is, I will be back more often!
A standard favorite with good food and service.
Easy to understand why they've "survived" 30 years there.
I have been to Delphi a few times because (1) I like Greek food and (2) it is convenient to Royce Hall UCLA, a popular venue for concerts. There are better Greek restaurants, but it is good and reliable and can be recommended to people in the Westwood area. Also, it doesn't hurt that there is a fantastic ice cream shop next door that specializes in the Persian version with many unusual (wonderful) flavors.
If you want succulent lamb - we had skewers - that is moist and bursting with taste AND you want to actually have a conversation, this is a good choice. We went early on a Saturday for dinner. We were the only people there. Clearly, not a 'scene'. The restaurant has been on Westwood Boulevard since 1985! Give it a try!
It was spooky because we were the ONLY ONES in the restaurant all night long. We went out to dinner to escape Halloween madness at home, but this was like being in the Twilight Zone. And because we were the only ones there, the service was overly attentive ( bordering on interruptive) and there wasn't enough time between courses. The food was fine. Between the 4 of us we shared a cold appetizer combo of various dips and pita bread that was tasty, then we had shrimp souvlaki, chicken souvlaki, and moussaka. All were seasoned and prepared well. The baklava for dessert was quite sweet though. I felt badly that we stayed and talked after dinner since it appeared that the staff had nothing to do after our plates were cleared and it looked like they wanted to leave, even though it was still early evening (9:00-ish) and we'd been there just over an hour. As we got up to leave the host rushed to the door to escort us out, so I got the impression they were glad they could close up shop. All in all, kind of a strange night, since I don't know why there weren't any other customers.
The gyros were pre packaged, not cut off of a gyros roast. The avgolemono soup was thickened with something that made it slimy. There was nobody else in the restaurant the entire time we were there. I will not go back.
I had a party of 8 here on my birthday because I think this is such a great place. They surprised me with a beautiful flower arrangement especially for me!! SO sweet. The food was absolutely amazing. We ordered a few favorites, but left most of the ordering up to our waitress who did not disappoint. The whole group loved everything and the price was more than reasonable for the quality of food and service. I love this place!
I am not sure if this place is more of a lunch spot. I took my parents hoping for a nice evening...but we were all alone in the restaurant (felt a bit weird...i probably would have liked it if I need the space and the privacy). Restaurant manger super nice and very kind.
I like to try different places and find please to repete them.
This restaurant is ok but I didn't get crazy with it.
The food was good, but I would not return. Portions for wraps were fine, and my kids enjoyed them. I got a lamb kabob plate, and the meat portion was very small. I was most upset at extra costs. We ordered humus starter and were asked if we wanted pita with it. I figured of course, as I did not want to eat it with my hands. There was a$3 charge. My son ordered a wrap, and it came as a plate. He asked that they put the food in a pita wrap, which they did with an extra charge. The extra charges were not much, but they were annoying
The food and service was very good. The atmosphere was so so. Not too many patrons. I would recommend it if you like Greek food. I will go back.
We loved the atmosphere and the appetizers. The main courses: moussaka and another noodle/beef casserole, left something to be desired. We had an Amazon Local to try them out. Nice people, but the food wasn't special. Don't think we'll go back.
Mediocre Food. Small portions. High Prices. "Nickel and dime" you. Arrogant owner.
What used to be the best and most authentic Greek food has become a rather bland version without the distinctive spices and flavor of the real thing. A disappointment.
Always liked this authentic neighborhood taverna.. made all the better by a recent actual trip to Greece.. good food, wine, nice ambience and peace in this time of overly noisey restaurants.
You know how you forget that place you've driven by a million times? Delphi Greek is near my office and they have the easiest online ordering system for delivery, so I completely forgot about going there. Then I needed a close by location to take my daughter out for a "girls day" and remembered The Delphi Greek.
This turned out to be a wonderful solution, the food was fabulous - fresh, visually enticing and even had some vegetarian options. While I don't drink, I was aware that they have excellent (and affordable) wines which birthday girl enjoyed immensely.
I'm planning on returning this week!
Food and service were very good
This place was bad all around.
Needed a place nearby a theater in UCLA and Greek sounded good. It's a small, quaint eatery, pretty blue lighting in the evening and the wait staff was friendly. The service was leisurely; had we not had extra time to kill, it might have been a problem. One of the best moussaka I've ever had and the rice that accompanied it was very flavorful. Generous portions, but still tried the chocolate raspberry cake which was moist and not overly sweet. Be prepared to walk from wherever you can find a parking space to the restaurant. We were lucky to get street parking on the next block. Overall, a pleasant evening.
Delphi is a simple Mom-and-Pop restaurant with low to moderate prices. The food runs from fair to very good. The Greek salad we started needed a little more punch. My lamb chops were excellent. The side dishes vegies were just ok except for the large pile of white something. Whatever it was tasted and looked like packing box filler. Should I return, I will certainly ask for rice or something else. Also, service is sub-par.
We had the lowest price breakfast in LA...couldn't believe it. It was good food. Service was a little scarce, but we were the only one's there.
This is not a Greek restaurant. It's Persian. Food is low quality. Service is poor.
one of the few really good greek restaurants around - service is excellent and the food is great - the pita with a sampling of hummus, eggplant, and yogurt dips are a real treat - the menu is loaded with interesting choices - and try the greek coffee or other unique drinks -though it's a small place it is a surprisingly comfortable fun experience -
Not as expected. A little disappointed when they showed they didn't know about "dessert day". The dessert was set and looked ugly.... Overall, it was not cheap. The food is soso, the salad was too bad....
The food was delicious, as always. It was a hot day and being in the restaurant with no air on a warm afternoon was challenging, but other than that, it is one of my favorite Greek restaurants in L.A.
Loved the lemon chicken and roasted potatoes. Our server was amazing. We'll be back again.
