They’re going out of business so the fact that we were very disappointed doesn’t matter.

So good!!!!
We went on the last day of the Dine LA week.
There were 4 of us and we each ordered one of the 4 offereed appetizers and the 4 offered mains and we shared.
Everything was delicious - and one of the apps, turkey meatballs with avgolomono sauce came with only 3 meatballs. At our request, they gave us a fourth meatball.
Everything was delicious. Dessert was the best baklava!
The sad part is that this location is closing at the end of February - and the owner is opening up a casual Greek place on PCH in Malibu! We will miss it in Santa Monica.

This Greek restaurant was a wonderful find. My nephew and I enjoyed the delicious starters: hummus and Youvarlakia (turkey and rice meatballs in a terrific dill-lemon sauce) . The Moussaka was the best I have ever had in a restaurant, and equal to one prepared by a Greek friend, in her home. The Lamb Youvetsi was also excellent. the Baklava dessert was exceptional! The service was friendly and efficient. Sadly, this restaurant is closing at this Santa Monica location. The owner is considering a new location, perhaps in Malibu. I put myself on their mailing address and look forward to their re-opening. I live in Orange County, but, am willing to dine with them, wherever they locate in Southern California.

The food here is always outstanding. This time, I went for Dine LA and was not disappointed. The octopus was spectacular. So was the lamb (you don't need a knife) with orzo. And the wine list is carefully curated. I've never had anything but excellent food, drink and service here.

Absolutely delicious! What more can be said? I was expecting fairly typical Greek food, but here everything was so flavorful. The portions were just right as well.

A great Greek restaurant. Everything was excellent! We went here for DineLA . The sad part is I’m not sure how much longer this location is going to be here? They are suppose to be opening a new location in Malibu .

Great place to dine, unfortunately it is closing, so hurry. We've enjoyed this place over the past few years and will sorely miss it. Food is unusual and very tasty. Some of our favorites include the octopus salad, moussaka, and the baklava. Our last meal was for DineLA. The featured meal included Branzino, which was out-of-this-world.

Great service & food in a modern setting.
The people were so gracious & are glad to see you.
They brought over several wines for us to taste before deciding.
The food was a high quality updated Greek cuisine, thoughtfully prepared.

Love it, love it, love it. Friendly service, great recommendations, plenty of options for vegetarians though not sure what options would fit in for a vegan. Make a date to get over here for a meal - you will not be disappointed.

The food was super delicious. Elevated yet true to traditional Greek cuisine. Our favorite dishes were the cod with lemon mashed potatoes and the gigantes beans. The service was attentive and lovely, too. We will definitely be back!

the place had potential, and I will say that we were there an hour before the kitchen closed, but I wish restaurants would cut off taking orders if they keep telling you that the kitchen is about to close. the food was fair and not very authentic Mediterranean. call it "Mediterranean a la USA".

We loved this place!!! Nearly everything we tried was excellent: chicken kapama, spanakopita, gigantes, lemon broccoli, lamb shank, hummus, baklava, galactoboureko, and a date cake dessert. My 8-y-o loved everything (including the broccoli), except the lamb, which he did not try. The Greek salad and the roast potatoes were very good, just not quite as nice as the rest. Staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. If you like Greek or other Mediterranean food, you should definitely try this place.

Food mainly excellent, esp. octopus. . Mousakka a little disappointing. Relatively small servings (all tapas) but 5 dishes were ample food for 4 older adults who don't eat large amounts. Very attentive but not excessive service. Our first time there and we will return.
