When I arrived, they said they do not use OpenTable anymore. They were able to accommodate me anyway. Why are they still advertising on your app if they are not honoring your reservations?

Not bad for a place to stop before flying out of Long Beach Airport but the food was just okay.

We had an amazing dining experience. From the very warm greeting and exit from the wonderful hostess. She is always so warm, accommodating and is an excellent reminder of the incredible personnel employed at this establishment. It is always the highlight of our dining experience to stop by this amazing restaurant and partake of some outstanding Greek cuisine. Our waiter was wonderful. The menu selection is filled with tasty Greek specialties. The amazing Greek salad is made to perfection. Lamb Chops are seasoned and care is obviously taken to ensure the dining experience is memorable. The food is par excellence, but it's the wonderful personnel that transcends the norm and is top notch class. Every employee made us feel welcome. For example, water was filled timely, dishes removed seamlessly. We look forward to many more occasions and future dining opportunities at this fine establishment.

I order a bottle of wine $ 26 and when I went to pay appeared on the bill $ 44 when I told the waitress told me I had specifically ordered a 44 ,she probably confused me with someone else ,she would not listen to reason or offer a discount, I dint fell like to argue in front of my girlfriend so I paid after she told me several times that I was wrong.

It is always the highlight of our dining experience to stop by this incredible restaurant and partake of some outstanding Greek cuisine. On this occasion, we were greeted warmly by Amy. She is always so warm, accommodating and is an excellent reminder of the incredible personnel employed at this establishment. Next is Stephanie, our waitperson, whose knowledge of menu items and her 'spot on' suggestions were the best. The menu selection is filled with amazing Greek specialties. The amazing Greek salad is made to perfection. Lamb Chops are seasoned and care is obviously taken to ensure the dining experience is memorable. The food is par excellence, but it's the service by Stephanie that transcends the norm and is top notch class. Every employee made us feel welcome.

We had a craving for gyro's and immediately thought of George's Greek for that. They have the appetizer version, gyro sandwich (in a pita of course) with rice or salad as a side, or a side order of gyro meat (beef, chicken or lamb) Lamb is my favorite.

We were warmly greeted by the manager Torri as we settled in. Believe it or not this was the third time we had dined at George's over the past two weeks. I had already written two other reviews, but found ourselves going through gyros, saganaki, dolmades and galaktobouriko withdrawal, so here we were again.

This time our server was Ashli who took great care of us, just like Kevinopoulos the previous two times. We purposely came on a Friday to try their Kleftico which was slow roasted tender and juicy lamb shoulder. It came with delectable roasted potatoes and Greek salad. We also tried their moussaka, one of my favorite dishes composed of eggplant, ground beef with an incredibly light and tasty bechamel sauce.

Ashli and the entire staff were attentive throughout the dinner, making sure everything was delicious, which it was.

We're headed back to Chicago next week, which had one of the earliest Greektowns, and introduced me to this marvelous cuisine as I was growing up. However, we will pass on Greek food this trip because our favorite is now located in Lakewood at George's.

This place is in a class of its own. I took my wife and daughter's to George's Greek Cafe to celebrate my daughters birthday on 05/23. Me and my 16 year old daughter had an idea of what to expect regarding Greek food. However, my 22 year old and my wife didn't know what to expect and therefore had their defences up.

I order the Family style dinner which offered about eight different Greek food items to experience. I wanted the full Greek experience for my girls. We really enjoyed the dinner everything was very good, my wife and 22 year old daughter cannot stop talking about how good the food was.

George's Greek Cafe will be seeing my family again and again. Great job guys!!!!

My most recent visit was to have a birthday party with 10 people. It went great with great service and food. I have been to this location a number of times before, even for their Sunday brunch. This location is good for kids and groups, and has a nice bar area with cool seating. If you want romance though, head to their downtown Long Beach location on Pine. Either way, you can't go wrong with Georges Greek. I also go the 2nd St location.
