We had a reservation on a weeknight and were the only diners at the restaurant. The food was decent, but the portions were small and the prices were too high for what we got (even in this part of town). Perhaps most strangely, the servers said that they weren't allowed to serve tap water. They said that due to covid restaurants could only serve filtered water, which I haven't been able to verify. Overall, the experience was disappointing.
New Year’s Day, place was completely empty. Not their fault.
Sweet small spot with nice ambience and fabulous food. Had the filet kebabs and the lamb kebabs and they were wonderful also had the appetizer combo and that was great as well as the salad. All fabulous. Gary was our waiter and he was fun and thorough.
Unfortunately once of the worst meals we have ever had. We were not able to eat the majority of the food
This was one of the few restaurants which was open beyond 10pm.
This was a welcomed meal after a long week traveling CA freeways. Our menu choices were guided by our server, who I believe was the owner. Every bite was delicious. Ingredients were fresh and well prepared. I highly recommend stopping by Tabla for an elevated Greek experience.
We came in for drinks and starters and the staff and owner were great! A1 service and very accommodating. So much we ended up talking the lamb home and it was so good!
Long story short good food, great service!
It was my first time trying it and everything was so good the food experienced service you guys should definitely get try it out.
Service was fantastic, food was delicious! One of the best Gyro platters I’ve had in a while! Very flavorful and moist. Even the pita bread was fresh and warm, I normally don’t eat pita bread but I had quite a few pieces because it was just so good. Can’t wait to head back and try more! And the chocolate cake was fabulous!
One of our most noteworthy dining experiences to date. I highly recommend this wonderful gem of a restaurant which excelled in every aspect. From the incredible food, world class service and ensuring safety protocols were followed. The menu is wonderful and authentic; the service by Sedrak T. was outstanding. I highly recommend many dishes like lamb chops, Saganaki, Kalamaria, Prassini, and Elliniki. Each prepared to perfection, as the chef seasons the dishes with native spices that are characteristic of Greece/Armenia. Each dish was a mouthwatering delicacy and prepared with love and care. Finish your meal with a myriad of delicious desserts We indulged by partaking of the chocolate cake and Armenian coffee, which complimented our main courses and were a delightful conclusion to a spectacular dining celebration.
Outstanding food and great service!
Great food, charming restaurant, great service!
Food was great and service was excellent! Would definitely come back!
We have dinned at Sofi previously and wanted to try their new restaurant. The food was good, the wait staff was helpful and pleasant. We dinned outdoors. The street traffic was a little noisy but not interfering. We recommend this restaurant for authentic Greek food.
Friday night dinner date. We started with ouzo and feta and olive appetizer while the toxins of the week’s work faded away. Great service, gyro platter and salmon dinner were delicious. Perfectly cooked. Rice never tasted so good! Tried the Greek lemonade, which I would recommend highly.
We had a big crew when I made the reservation, and our group kept getting larger and larger. Tabla accommodated us with each new addition. The food was delicious and prompt, and our party of 12 ended up having a great time.
Food was amazing! Drinks were bomb. Authentic Greek food for a good price. Gary made us feel like family. We’re definitely coming back here
This adorable place can be easily missed walking down 3rd Street, but DON'T! If want a sweet with spot with amazing food find a table and fill up. The baklava cheesecake was amazing.
Tabla has great food, amazing service. If I have a slight complaint, its not their fault, but outside seating is on a slant and not level.
Very good food! Excellent!
All the dishes were excellent
Fantastic evening. Table was ready when we arrived. Our waiter had suggestions for appetizers for our group of 6. We nodded approval and they began arriving within minutes.
Delicious dips, flaming fried cheese and a Greek salad.
Our mixed drinks arrived promptly and the waiter kept track of our progress regularly.
Between the 6 of us we tried the Gyro platter, Moussaka, the chicken mushroom plate, and a fish special. They were all tasty.
All in all it was a great night. Great food, service and atmosphere.
Visited this restaurant a week ago while visiting in LA. The food was served cold, the vegetables were underdone, and the moussaka was did not have the ingredients listed on the menu (missing tomatoes and eggplant). Additionally, we had a reservation through Open Table, but the greeter seemed confused when we mentioned it as he started to look for a table for us. We found one quickly, so we thought nothing of it, but then got a comeback for not showing up for our reservation. Total mismanagement from the get-go.
Disappointing! We have been here a couple of times recently but this was likely our last visit. The service is inattentive at best and, while the food is good, it is overpriced based on the whole experience (lackluster ambiance, service, etc.). Additionally we were told that we had to buy bottled water because the restaurant "isn't allowed to serve tap water due to Covid restrictions." We weren't buying this and were unable to find anything on the internet about water restrictions - nor have we had to buy bottled water in any other restaurant in Los Angeles. It felt a little shady. Needless to say, we won't be visiting this restaurant again in the near future.
Amazing fresh food! We will be back again! Great options for vegetarians and gluten free.
Great service, went early and treated very good. Food was good, good location
The food was excellent and our waiter was a hoot! Best of all they had real authentic Greek taramasalata!
Lovely restaurant with great service and very accommodating staff.
Promotion celebration and they were very kind and gave us a baklava for the occasion. Very chill and nice staff, food was great
Average food, very over priced for what it was and la i of presentation. Terrible service
There was no happy hour, as advertised everywhere online. They said they would accommodate that, then didn't. It was overpriced for the quality.
We had an al fresco lunch here, ordering fairly typical Greek dishes - the Greek salad (we added chicken), and the gyros platter. Both were excellent. The salad had extremely fresh veggies, with a LOT of crispy Persian cukes and ripe tomatoes, and great feta. The vinaigrette was just right and not too heavy. The chicken was tasty. The gyros platter had 5-6 good-size gyro strips, which were thicker and larger than what you typically see. Each was grilled and perfectly seasoned, served with soft large pitas, a side of saffron(?) rice and fresh steamed veggies, nicely flavored. Service was good and friendly. We will go back! (BTW, they had some more interesting dishes on the menu, as well. We just were in the mood for typical Greek dishes that day.)
The food was fantastic. Best Hummus I’ve had since being in Israel. Everything is made fresh and taste like it. Gary was fantastic and told us how they changed locations a few months back and people think they’ve closed. They’re open and it’s well worth trying. You won’t be disappointed!
The food and service is very good; sitting outside can be a bit noisy due to emergency vehicle traffic on the main street. All of the dishes were well prepared, tasty and well presented.
Delicious food and margaritas! Gary was our server and a lot of fun! Will definitely be coming back!
Our first time coming to Tabla by Sofi. We had the most amazing experience. YOU have to check it out! It’s the cutest little spot with amazing food. The Saganaki is to die for. IT WAS cheese on FIRE!! The service we received was so amazing and we will definitely be back again and again. They made us feel welcomed and gave us the best experience.
As I Greek, and maybe a little particular about Greek food, this was a great experience. In my opinion, the true test of of a good Greek restaurant is their avolemeno soup. It’s a basic traditional Greek favorite and it can easily go wrong if you don’t do it right. Theirs is quite authentic and fresh served with plenty of chicken and orzo. Not thickened with corn starch.
The food service was quick and very attentive. The Mousaka, absolutely delicious. It truly tasted homemade. The lamb chops were perfectly cook too. Maybe be a hint of too much salt, still the plate was emptied nearly as fast as it was served.
Definitely try the saganaki too.
The only room for improvement is the wine list. It was quite limited so I suggest bringing your own if you like really good wine with a delicious Greek meal.
We’ll be back.
Owner is very attentive. Great food
Excellent food and excellent service. The hummus was delicious. Our main fish dishes were superb. Everything was prepared to order with care. We enjoyed speaking to Gary who is part of the family that has run this business for years.
