Pros: wonderful food, great service, with a fun atmosphere

Cons: music played continuously so conversation was difficult

"The Great Greek" in Sherman Oaks serves what is most probably the best Greek food in all of Los Angeles.

The casual atmosphere is warm, friendly and inviting and the food is delicious.

The Menu offers a great selection of hot or cold appetizers .... including tasty Hummus with pita bread, outstanding Spanakopita and Meditteranenan-styled eggplant stuffed with fresh tomatoes, onions, garlic, herbs and feta cheese (really good!).

The Char-broiled chicken-breast kebabs are wonderfully satisfying and served with some of the best oven-roasted potatoes I've ever eaten. Roast Lamb is the house specialty and it's served with a Greek-style pilaf and fresh vegetables.

Their Macedonian Baklava (homemade with crushed almonds, walnuts, pistachios and pure Greek honey) had me licking my fingers and wanting more! I also highly recommend their custom-baked creamy cheesecake .... which is considered to be one of the best recipes in Los Angeles.

The Great Greek is a particularly fun and lively place for dinner and is very reasonably priced too!

Could use a lighter touch with the lards and oils. Authentic Greek is usually not that rich. Prices are up there, but the place is lively and I loved the galaktobouriko dessert and Greek Coffee.

This is the shadiest, most corrupt restaurant I've ever been to. We picked this restaurant because we wanted something different for our birthday party. It seemed appealing because it provided greek cuisine and dancing. We weren't worried

The food here is good, yummy and a lot of choices. Also, sometimes in the evenenings, there is music and people start dancing traditional Greek dancing, which is really fun. However, I think the prices are a little steep!

This is hands-down the best Greek place in the entire San Fernando Valley. The large menu offers many wonderful choices and, on weekend nights, live music is accompanied by the lively staff members dancing traditional jigs from their homelands. Just make sure you don't sit too near the band or the dance floor. The pita bread is shipped in from back East and it is incredible, and there is an extensive selection of imported Greek wines.

This place has the energy of Greece! The food is great - get the platter to experience a touch of everything. The Chicago pita bread is the best I've ever tasted. I went on a Sunday and there was live music with women Greek dancing.

Upon walking in, you feel like part of a sm. Greek village. Staff is warm and very attentive.\r
The food is excellent, I had the pasta with lamb and it is just absolutely wonderful. The wine selection is good and topping off the a-list

This is a very good restaraunt, though the prices are very high. The music is great and you can dance, but there are plenty of other middle eastern themed restaraunts that you can get a great greek meal without the high prices!

It really is a great Greek restaurant. It is a bit pricey but has a nice atmosphere, though it has a horrible view of Ventura Blvd. The pita bread is apparently flown in from Chicago and is light, fluffy, and delicious with their hummus. Most of the food is outstanding.
