We went to Dio Deka on SundayWe went to Dio Deka on Sunday for the Mother's Day Brunch. The service was excellent and our experience was outstanding. The food was out of this world. We will go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an enjoyable experienceVery enjoyable experience. Service was brilliant and food was fantastic. Ive dined here for sinner many times but never for Brunch. Brunch on Mother's Day was just as amazing as any other dinner I've had there. The staff was friendly, helpful, happy to make recommendations and genuinely made us feel valued. I was impressed with service which was very attentive without being in any way intrusive. Will definitely return, worth traveling from San Mateo for. The ONLY thing I had a hard time with was the $35 cork fee for brunch. I've understand the fee for dinner and have paid with no hesitation in my past visits. However the fee represented 85% of the total tab.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood definitely is excellent,Food definitely is excellent, but the corkage fee of $35 per bottle is bit too much.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restuarant has neverThis restuarant has never disappointed. Food/service is exceptional.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing steak and wineThis restaurant is nice for a romantic evening out.
The food is delicious and the wine was very good (our waiter gave us excellent advice for our selection based on our preferences). The side dishes were very good, too, especially the french fries and creamed spinach.
A very festive and delicious experience!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertaining my most special guestsI really wanted to impress my guests so i decided to come to Dio Deka. I loved the Spanish style of the hotel upon arriving. I wished I would have taken advantage of the outdoor seating before dinner.The staff was very accommodating. The appetizers were so delicious. I really enjoyed the octopus. The Greek salad was fresh and very flavorful. I had fish for the entree. It was prepared perfectly. We sat near the bar so there was great energy around us. I can't wait to go back. My guests enjoyed their food and my company. Thanks to Dio Deka!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went on a Sunday nightWe went on a Sunday night which was probably quieter than Fri/Sat. Our server was great, very friendly and informative. This was our first visit as we live in Menlo Park and hadn't made the drive to Los Gatos.
All of the food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. There were definitely unique combinations and flavors. Desserts were nice as well. Portions weren't too big. Nice that the restaurant offered traditional greek dishes as well as more innovative options.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's nice when a restaurantIt's nice when a restaurant lives up to it's reputation. Our dinner here was wonderful, and our waiter was superb. When it warms up, I expect that dining on the outdoor terrance will be fun also. Dio Deka is a winner.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDio Deka is one of our favoriteDio Deka is one of our favorite restaurants and where we celebrate special occasions. At about $100 per couple without wine, its not somewhere we can go as often as we might like.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWill definitely go backInteresting well balanced menu, absolutely terrific food, lovely setting, great service, what more could you want? Can't wait to go back. Four of us tried four apps, three mains, and two desserts. Every single item was excellent, not a weak link in the lot.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time we eat at Dio DekaEvery time we eat at Dio Deka the food is better than the last time. Everything on the menu is delicious, the atmosphere is perfect and the service is excellent.
I'd recommend ordering the baby back ribs to start. The steaks, the moussakkas(sp), the chicken, the lamb are all fabulous entrees and anything on the dessert menu is to die for.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingDio Deka delivered again a great dining experience. The food was truly outstanding. The staff is always present and looking after you without disturbing you. Great!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe maitre d' was very attentiveThe maitre d' was very attentive and very enthusiastic about the cuisine. He made it a treat to dine here, although the food alone would have made this a very pleasant meal. The wine list included many Greek choices, and the one recommended for me -- Biblio Chora (if I recall it rightly) -- was quite good.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, impeccableDelicious food, impeccable service, truly a great restaurant to visit over and over again!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to celebrateFood was amazing! We celebrated a birthday and was pleasantly surprised to see our birthday girl's name on the heading of the Menu. The staff was genuine and hats off to the chefs.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service attentionExcellent service attention to detail,awesome service and offcourse food was delicious cant even ask for anymore3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOutrageously, needlessly,Outrageously, needlessly, expensive. We're the steaks world-class, they'd still be offensively priced. But the beef quality is average.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal ever. There wereBest meal ever. There were six of us and we shared many appetizers, and then order ribeye on the bone with meat sliced and lamb chops on a large platter that we all shared. I should give kudo's to the wine director Jeremy Dennis, who recommended the wine, and it
was excellent. It went with the food, was reasonably priced, and I haven't enjoyed such
a rich, red wine as I loved: Torrin, from San Luis Obispo County.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food fit for special occasionThe food is fabulous. (Try the brussels sprouts appetizer!)
The wait staff is attentive without being intrusive.
And, if you tell them it is a special occasions, you receive a personalized menu!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food that's a cut aboveFood is terrific. Portions on the smallish side, so not the best place for big eaters. But the technique and care that goes into the food preparation is evident and the quality and taste are exceptional. Service and ambiance are very nice. Open space, but low noise level. The moussaka and the cabbage rolls were both excellent.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Hellenic CuisineDio Deka is a fabulous venue. It's easy to get to, valet parking is complimentary, and the service was outstanding. We received our food in a timely manner and our waiter was very helpful in helping us choose our meal. My only complaint is that the females who work there wore some skimpy clothing... It was a distraction, to say the least, and they looked so uncomfortable in their high heels. I don't know how they last all night in those things. Besides that, it was a great time!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSplendid ambience, serviceSplendid ambience, service and food. My new favorite dining experience !3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOctopus appetizer is superb.Octopus appetizer is superb. The mussels and calamari is also a dish to put on your list!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chef believes that saltThe chef believes that salt is a vegetable and should be used liberally. Both the appetizers and the main courses had so much salt added that they were uncomfortable to consume. Unfortunate as the quality of the ingredients was excellent and the flavors should have been permitted to flourish on their own.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
