I randomly took my fiance here one evening and we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered the spanikopita appetizer to start with. I had the mousaka as my dinner. It was very good. Dress to impress here.

Class and sophistication are very much evident here. A dress code will be enforced, and reservations are recommended. You will thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere of this gorgeous restaurant. My favorites are the lamb chops, humus, and spicy olives.

After dining all over L.A., I thought I had eaten some of the best lamb at The Little Door, but I was wrong. Anyone dining at Petro's must try the lamb with the baked feta on top. Absolutely delicous. Great atmosphere!
