About

The food is plainly some of the best Mediterranean cuisine in Los Angeles. There is an award winning wine list from all over the world including an unparalleled selection of Greek wines. The entrees are impeccably fresh and light. The signature of
the house, delectable baby rack of lamb simply melts in your mouth and the daily fish specials are hand picked by the owners each morning.


A meal can also easily be made from the incredible selection of Mezedes (appetizers) and salads.

Come let Le Petit Greek bathe you in the warmth and flavor of the magical Greek Islands.


It will beckon you to return again and again.

Fantastic neighborhood place that goes beyond that. Comfortable, with good sidewalk people-watching. Nice at night or lunch. Very good pita bread. Great salmon; skewers are all good. Wonderful beef stew. Super charming wait staff.

Some restaurants lose their quality over time. I first ate at Le Petit Greek in the 90's when I worked at Paramount Pictures (we'd have lunch there every other week). Coming to LA to visit an old Paramount pal and his wife, we had dinner there for 5 of us (including my 6 year-old autistic son who's gluten-free). It was delicious as always - fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection, and the world's best Moussaka - well, I've traveled internationally for over a decade, and although I haven't been to Greece.. from everywhere else, the BEST moussaka!

Notable champagne list that while I hand't heard of them before, tasted great! And the service is always great.

I have rarely left reviews but le petite was recommended by a friend with the highest recommendation. It lived up to every moment of that. Probably some of the best Greek food I've had. Zero complaints, try the calamari salad. Excellent.

A longtime favorite of mine keeps getting better and better! The house retsina has been upgraded and the traditional cuisine comes in generous servings. Everything on the menu is sure to please: meze, appetizers; avgolemono, addictive and hearty lemon-chicken soup; kapamas, lamb shank; moussaka, bake eggplant with meaty bechamel topping; calamari salad; desserts... all to die for! Thank you Dmitri and staff of longtime standing.

The appetizer sampler has all the basics, excellently prepared, the salad is fresh, and the lamb shank falls off the bone into a tomato based sauce . They were out of the wine I ordered so gave us a more expensive one--at the other one's price! Dark but not too dark, white tablecloth, no dancing and Greek music. Just great food and service at a reasonable price. Best value in town.

This was my fourth time in the restaurant, which is generally pricier than normal for me. It's family that runs it, and they give off an air of joy in serving good food. Be sure to try the spanakopita appetizer, which is unbelievably wonderful. For dessert, the kataifi will leave your mouth happy for hours.

Not foodies in the elaborate phony sense, but a wonderful meal comprising three separate dishes; good friends in a beautiful setting where you can have a full conversation, but still feel the "buzz" of people around you. We dine there about 3 or 4 times a month. diners should know that the bill will be around 100 dollars with a glass of wine for two people.

We had lunch inside which was quiet with most diners on the sidewalk patio. I got the special quinoa salad which was a little bland. The traditional Greek dishes are the best, you cannot go wrong. Always good service.

I frequent this place for lunch and it is always good. I was disappointed with the service for dinner. It was a special occasion, large group, and we felt ignored. We had to wave down servers several times. The tip was included since we were a large group. I guess that's why they felt they could ignore us. I wont bring another large party there again!

What a find! As Greeks who are new to LA, we were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this restaurant last Saturday night. We mistakenly thought there were no good Greek restaurants down here and thankfully we learned otherwise. First of all, the owner is very hands-on and oh how it shows. He greets everyone and makes sure the service is top notch. Very friendly guy. The menu has all your Greek favorites and more. We enjoyed the food tremendously and sitting outside on a beautiful evening made us feel like we were back in Greece. We'll return soon!

We go there often and we are always pleased with everything. Service is always pleasant, the waitstaff is detail oriented and the food is tasty. The food presentation is pretty to the eyes. There is enough food on the plate. This restaurant allows customers to bring their own wine, which we always do. Of course there is a corkage fee, but that is nominal. All in all we love going there.
