PYLOS is a consistently superior experience in terms of food quality, professional service and comfortable ambiance. Their dips are amazing. Their specials are amazing. Their Greek standards are amazing. Having eaten there many times it is always a pleasure to return. Highly recommended.

First time at this establishment was memorable for service and food. I was able to try a Belgian ale on tap that I had heard about. The wait staff was excellent and gave us recommendations on their menu. Will go again and enjoy the experience. We watched the Giants/ Dodgers game and two America cup football games while we ate.

Food is great. I had two business guests and the Waiter crossed the line between recommending and telling us what we should order. Saw him do it with another guest at a table near us. Waiter needs some training.

Fantastic service, great food & drinks. My guests commented that their skinny margaritas are the best that they've tasted so far. It was a perfect ratio and balance of the ingredients. Witch water was extremely beautiful, tasty, and strong; hence the name. Awesome & fresh salsa trio, fish taco, lobster & steak taco, Al Pastor, Campichano, Quesabirria were all at elevated levels. The ambiance of the restaurant is easy going and classy. You can have a business meeting here, bring a date, or bring friends to dine indoor or outdoor.
