We came in for late appetizers ended up having dinner too. Started with saganaki and tramasalata which was very good. I ordered the braised lamb which was also very good comparable to Greek restaurants in Chicago. My lady friend ordered the roasted chicken and it was good too.came with a little rice and roasted potatoes with a little tomato sauce... More

Amazing service, great little place... food was good but didn't stand out. Big portions with bread served with a sort of dip. Would give a 4/5 if it wasn't on the pricier side.

We dined here recently on the recommendation of a family member. The place was packed, yet the owner, Chris, found us a table. His attention to his guests could be seen throughout the evening. The garlic dip smelled and tasted wonderful. I had the lamb tenderloin while my other dining companions had lamb shank and a kabob with a red... More

Not a fancy restaurant by any description but a good example of Greek food done well. We recommend trying the taramasalata (dip made from salmon roe) as it is not found commonly in the US.

Four of us enjoyed a nice evening. We wanted to share around and the waiter totally rolled with it. He helped with suggestions and helped us put together a great meal. Good food and nice atmosphere.

I had lunch here and had the lamb souvlaki. It was delicious and came with salad, rice pilaf and bean salad. It was filling, delicious and fairly priced. I will be back and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Greek Food.

Enjoyed really great food and service... But, the NOISE kills it. Tried to have an interview/meeting over lunch, and we had to constantly lean across the table to hear one another. Very difficult to hold a conversation. The room has echoes and one loud table kills it for the whole restaurant.

I had lunch at Epsilon yesterday and found the atmosphere pleasant to enjoy my Lamb Shanks with Baklava desert. The lamb came with the plate full of a variety of salads and rice. Sitting at a window seat watching the world go by, I enjoyed my meal accompanied by attentive service. Although Baklava might be considered a cliché, served warm... More

We found this restaurant which a little off the main shopping area in Monterey when we were searching for a vegetarian friendly restaurant. Both the vegetarian and fish dishes served were excellent. They compare to some of the best Greek food I have eaten both in Greece and the UK.
