I hate to do this because I have a great deal of respect for restaurant owners and how difficult their job can be. However, this particular establishment has been open nearly 35 years, so they should have the hang of it by now. I took my Greek boyfriend here last night hoping for an opportunity to inspire his faith in Los Angeles-Greek cuisine. We arrived at 9:00 PM and were seated promptly. Shortly thereafter, we were bombarded by the Chef's Portuguese wife (also a chef). While she was ""helpful"" with suggestions, she was aggressive and forced us to rush because she said the kitchen was closing very soon. Why the hell did she seat us then!!!!???? Our food was very hit or miss, mostly ""missing"" authentic Greek flavor. The Melizanosalata was so bizarre. The Dolmades were dry. The Spanikopita was missing several main ingredients. \r
The most disappointing aspect of our dining experience was the fact that this woman forgot my boyfriend's main course altogether. Mine came and went and we waited patiently for his. Finally he addressed the situation and she responded with some really pathetic reason as to why she forgot this major detail. Then, instead of making it up she reiterated the kitchen was closed. So he only had an appetizer. We hoped she would make a classy move and try and compensate for her forgetfullness and comp us something....but no. She didn't so much as apologize until we were one foot out the door when she assured us she would give us something special ""next time"". Why not comp us right then and there???? She assumed we would come back and give them more business.\r
Not authentic, unclassy service and lame environment.
