Knock your socks off? You're outta luck... As a former NYer who lived in Astoria, Queens, where I met and married a Greek girl...well, the pickings are slim. But there is:
Athens Market--Downtown and Carmel Mnt Ranch
Cafe Athena--PB on Garnet
Country Kabob--Adams Ave
But I would suggest trying European Market and Deli on Park Ave. It's very casual, the food is home-cooked and authentic, and they have a variety of Greek grocery goods. (How's that for alliteration...)
Ask for Sophia...she does most of the cooking and she's a treasure.
I've tried Athens Market in CMN and its not bad but i haven't tried the one downtown. I've also tried greek corner cafe in CMN and its average. I've tried a few others but i can't really remember the names because they didn't really stand out.
I've heard good things about Cafe Athena and I've been wanting to try it.

The people that I know that like to go to Greek restaurants say that Cafe Athena is among the best. An option many haven't tried is the Pegasus Cafe in Rancho Bernardo.
