I have been here a few times. It's a good place for concerts as the seats are positioned nicely for optimal viewing & it's not as big as the Hollywood Bowl. Availability of food & drink is ok, but the workers are quite slow making the lines long. Last night, however, was exceptionally bad & then to find out they don't have any of the cold wines! Don't know what happened, but that sucked. Overall, I would recommend it!

Every Concert should come through here!

In my opinion, The Greek should have been rated # 1 in the Best Of! The forest backdrop of Griffith Park is GORGEOUS, the wonderful ambiance reminds me why I love living in a state where we can have outdoor concerts 365 days/year! The theater itself is small so even the worst seat in the house is still pretty close to the stage. And yeah, the stacked parking isn't great, but it's NOTHING compared to H'Wood Bowl stacked parking (And hey, this is LA, haven't we endured worse for parking?)
I wish more artists would come to the Greek, it's truly an awesome experience!

Poor food choices!

My complaint is about the food. I recommend ordering one of the three food baskets a couple of days before the show you're going to see since the food choices at the Greek are not the best and they are relatively expensive. I've gone at least two times where the food was at best, average...I recently went to the UB-40/English Beat/Elan concert and my husband's bagel was not fresh, the chicken ""tenders"" were oversalted, as were the french fries. After spending so much money you'd think they'd bother to use the best, why not Nathan's hot dogs or something with some class?!!!

Other than that I pretty much enjoyed the concert, the bathrooms are always clean and there are enough of them. We didn't even have a problem with leaving out of the stacked parking this time!

Sweet venue!

It was a chilly night but we made do for the Open Season premiere. There was ample parking and the sound quality was terrific! I'd love to come back and watch some concerts here.

great outdoor theatre

I've seen many shows here, but I'd suggest getting tickets extra early since the theatre seems to go as far as the eye can see. Not as far as the Bowl, of course, but still a pretty big venue. Traffic can be a hassle afterwards since everyone is trying to go down the same road, so be prepared to wait.

Smaller than the Hollywood Bowl and with more bathrooms

The Greek Theatre's charm is that it is a relatively small and intimate venue, while still having the benefits of being and outside amphitheater. I've sat every where from the very top aisle to right by the stage and in either place, I have always felt that I was able to have a great experience.

Amazing

The Greek has amazing acoustics and is the one of the most beautiful places to see a show in Los Angeles. When its warm at night seeing a show there feels like summer camp, and they often get amazing acts to play there. I would try to buy tickets early because you can end up sitting pretty far away from the stage. And the parking is horrible because you get like quadruple parked and it takes forever to leave the dirt parking lot...but it is all definetly worth it.

the sh*t!!

Great venue. We see a concert a week and have lived in such places as SAn FRancisco, NYC, Denver and Chicago. The Greek has a great feeling like your in the middle of the woods. Awesome

Nearly perfect but pack a lunch

Excellent venue to see a concert. Outside, nestled in the hills and trees underneath the stars... but at a minimum, pack some drinks and snacks because getting out of the parking lot after the show can take a while.

Starlight and music

Sitting under the stars at the Greek can make any band or artist sounds better. Just about any seat offers a clear view of the stage, and the sound is usually top-notch.

Hollywood Bowl Lite

The Greek in Griffith Park is smaller and less impressive than the landmark Hollywood Bowl, but a show here can be just as enjoyable. The talent that plays is usually top-notch (I saw k.d. lang and Tony Bennett, Erykah Badu and Musiq, Jill Scott, and Nina Simone at the Greek in summer 2001), and almost every seat is a good one. There's something really spectacular about live music outdoors on a warm L.A. night, and performers seem to love it as much as the crowds. Save yourself some trouble and park outside Griffith park, off of N. Hillhurst Avenue south of Los Feliz Boulevard, then walk to the venue; it's a pretty stroll and a great way to avoid the parking mess.
