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.

I ate there twice this week. The second visit was prompted by the excellent dinner on the first visit. The second time was just as fine.

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.
