A word from Dio Deka
Michelin star recipient San Francisco Bay & Wine country for 2011 & 2012.





"At Dio Deka the refined and technically precise Greek and Mediterranean dishes are elevated to stellar levels.”- anonymously by the Michelin inspector





"…vividly flavored, brilliantly executed food, that transcends ethnicity but still tastes Greek…”- Gourmet Magazine






Award of Ultimate Distinction- Wine Enthusiast, Restaurant Awards





“memorable modern Greek cuisine" that “would make them jealous in Athens”, particularly when paired with an “extensive wine list” worthy of Dionysus; the five owners provide “over-the-top” service in the spirit of filoxenia (the art of hospitality) for what’s sure to be a "big fat Greek night" out. - Zagat

    I have been here few years back when they won the Michelin Star rating. Was worried this time as they have since then lost the rating. On top of it, it was my invite with my colleagues and families. It was successful evening! My guests enjoyed the service and the food, though I must say the dessert was wanting a bit after our great experience with dessert at The Plumed Horse in Saratoga. The wine was great and the service was great as well. Moussaka was perfect! So, were all the appetizers. However, I am not sure I will go back as I really like to have good dessert at the end and that was an area they fell short - didn't like the Greek Beignets.

    A little over-pricey, but the service was great and the food was great. We noticed a lot of business dinners going around. There is a slight dress code, business casual, just no shorts and sandals allowed. Because the price is pretty high, plus the portions are small, we would only go for special occasions.

    The food at Dio Deka was absolutely amazing! Expensive, but worth it! We both had the lamb chops for our main course, and I could not fault one thing! The sauce and marinade made the meat taste like ambrosia. The potatoes were little, lemony and crisp! And the spinach was delightful. We had the lobster salad special for a starter, which was simply marvellous! And the ribs were great, too - but not as good as the lobster! We brought our own wine, but the wine list looked full and had a lot of variety. Highly recommend Dio Deka, but just know that our meal with two starters and two main courses and our own wine (with corkage charge) was over $200 for 2.

    Dined on 7/12/2014
    We wanted to go somewhere new to us for our anniversary celebration. It did not disappoint. We had been warned about noise level, but it was fine perhaps because there were a couple empty tables near us. The dining room was a little darker than necessary. Outside seating with heat lamps looked desirable. Our waiter was attentive and made helpful recommendations. We loved everything we ordered: spinach phyllo pastry had a nice touch of dill; moussaka, grilled lamb chops. And happily, we saved room for dessert: burnt honey mousse (amazing!) and chocolate caramel tart. They were also thoughtful to add a couple beignets as an anniversary surprise. I would be delighted to come here again.

    Server was excellent he helped us with excellent wine choices to accompany our meal, he was pleasant and very informative. I enjoyed my lamb dinner more than my spouse enjoyed his rib eye. The rib eye was seasoned with some kind of mint seasoning and it threw off the beef taste for us. We loved our wines and lobster salad as our appetizer. We did not have dessert. It was kinda pricey but reasonable for a special night out.

    Dined on 6/27/2014
    We went here for a special occasion as it's fairly expensive. The food was excellent. The noise level is too high and it's unfortunate because that is something they could do something about - the acoustics are horrid. The worst part was that although the service was ok at the beginning it became very poor. We were essentially ignored until we'd finished and waited for a while before the waiter came back to ask us if we wanted desert. At that point all we wanted was the check - and to not come back!

    First time visit to Dio Deka and the experience was very good. Darryl took care of us expertly and was very gracious. Upon finding out it was our first time he brought perfectly cooked head on seasoned prawns. We split the Dolmathakia which was very savory with the beef cheek, complemented by the mushrooms and had a wonderful mouth feel. Amy ordered the Ktenia and the scallops were firm and not overcooked. The flavor of chanterelles and lemon were just enough to accent the sweet of the seared scallop. I ordered the Paithakia grilled lamb which was wonderfully medium rare with a flavorful oregano char. Dessert: traditional greek beignets. Darryl brought us glasses of paired wines and a dessert wine with coffee to finish. Awesome evening.

    Long story made short, I ordered the lamb. Would have been excellent but over-cooked. Also, you better want to eat fast, they like to turn their tables. Felt rushed.

    We came to Dio Deko last Saturday 6/14/14 to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary via a gift card from a dear friend. Once seated, our waiter, Stephen, explained the menu dishes to us. My wife selected the petite lamb chops, with the Greek salad, which had a fantastic tasting. I decided on the Lobster salad with the Veal Porterhouse and creamed spinach. It was tender, tasty, and delicious. Our cocktails were made to our liking; Stephen helped select the wine for our dinners and the dessert plus after-dinner drinks were phenomenal. Dio Deko is the best place to eat a fantastic meal with wonderful staff tending to your dinner needs of celebrating your anniversary with your loved one or any kind of a celebration :)

    This is my 2nd time to Dio Deka in the last 2 months. The service and food were exceptional! We started with a greek white wine recommended by our server and it was perfect after a somewhat hot summer day. We ordered the grilled octopus as an appetizer for the second time and it was equally as delicious as the first. I ordered the scallops which was fantastic! I came home and raved about it to my husband, I can't wait to go back and order it again! We will definitely be back and I highly recommend Dio Deka to anyone looking for more than a casual dining experience.

    Food wasn't out of this world. It was average for a high end restaurant. No one was in shock and awe. Certain plates were a bit salty, and others like their veal had zero flavor. Great ambiance, but it was a little loud (we sat in the middle of the restaurant). It came out to about $100/person for a group of six, though we brought wine with us.
