Best Greek food in the US. The atmosphere was great. We loved the ambiance, and the live music. Our waiter was so nice, and looked like a young David Bowie. While we were seated for an early dinner on Valentine's day, he suggested moving us to the most choice seat in the restaurant. The hummus was terrific as well as the dolmades (grape leaves stuffed with some sirloin/herbs, etc.). We had a bottle of French bordeaux (St. Emillion '06 I think) that was great and about $30 or so. Their prices are very reasonable, and we will definitelyl be going back.
Excellent Food and Service. This place was the best! The food was so delicious and the service was very good. It had a great atmosphere and I will definitely be back to try some more of their dishes
Not only best Greek, but also one of best restaurants I've ever been to.
I expected a satisfying meal (as I'm almost never disappointed with Mediterranean food), but Christaki's succeeded in not only being far and away the best Greek I've ever had, but one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The calamari was light and crispy, not too heavy with a batter that didn't overwhelm the calamari. Also started with the lemon-chicken soup which was outstanding. I love lamb, so I tried the grilled lamb chops and I have to say, they were the most perfectly prepared lamb chops I have ever had. My wife had salmon, which was also quite good (though you'd have to try pretty hard to mess up salmon).
The restaurant was surprisingly empty for a weekend evening, though on the way out I realized that many tables were seated outside. They had a classical/spanish style guitarist playing inside which added to the cozy authenticity of the place, and it was clear that it was family run as the owner was our server and voices were raised when he went back into the kitchen.
Bottom line, I've only been there once (I live in the Bay Area) but it was one of the best overall restaurant experiences I've ever had.
Best Greek Food. They have the best Greek food not only in Orange County, also in LA. It's small and cozy, and the service is always friendly. Make sure to make reservations for weekends.
