Best Greek Food

I moved to "the Valley" from Denver in 2003 and have yet to find a really good Greek restaurant. I have
been to the Greek Village in Sherman Oaks ( I think ) to celebrate a friend's birthday, however it was very noisy, and the focus was on the entertainment and not the food which I didn't think was that good.
Any suggestions located in the Valley, Burbank, or Pasadena please?

      Second Alexis in Northridge.

      Steph, did you mean the Great Greek in SO?

      if you're near Hancock Park, try Le Petit Greek on Larchmont.

      Thanks Emme, the Great Greek in Sherman Oaks. Thank you for the suggestions of the Alexis
      Greek restaurant, and the Firehouse. I think I read something about the Firehouse recently. I
      will definitely try these two. Thank you both for your replies.

        Sofi on 3rd is great for a non-valley option.
