    Late Thanksgiving with Mom. Grateful to find mid-east food open Monday. Proprietor couldn’t help low turn-out which detracts from ambiance. Liked the checked tablecloths in the ad. Food pretty good. Not served hot. Dolmas sauce disappointing.

    Everything was great. We both ordered Branzini but my partner’s was not cooked all the way. The octopus appetizer was excellent as was the Baklava. We also took home pastichio and Moussaka. They were also very good. Our waiter Giovanni was excellent and attending to our every need. I will return again.

    I've been to Athena Grill a number of times and usually enjoy it. The service was very good (although we had two different women as our servers) and the outside patio is a nice place to sit in warm weather for those of us who don't want to sit indoors. We were celebrating my friend's birthday and the server brought us a free piece of almond cake for dessert (which was appreciated, but neither of us enjoyed the cake since it was rather dry and dense). And this time there was too little chicken in the Athenian Chicken Pita Wrap and too little tzatziki. Both my friend and I noticed the dearth of chicken (as have some reviewers elsewhere) in this dish. It's also very hard to eat the smallish pita with all the tomatoes and other vegetables stuffed in it, so we wound up using a fork and knife to avoid getting food all over our faces. I always enjoy the yummy purple garlic/olive/mayo sauce that comes with the French fries, although this time the fries themselves could have been crisper. The owner or manager was nice enough to come by to ask how we were and we both appreciated that. So I'll still go back again, but might try a different dish, even though I've had and enjoyed this particular item before.

    First time eating here for our party of 4 and we all were very pleased! This is worth driving from south San Jose to Santa Clara, in an unexpected business park location with no other noticeable nearby restaurants. What a find to enjoy authentic Greek cuisine! Server was gracious and timely, food tasty and quite the variety, and price very affordable. Our friends have traveled to Greece and commented that this place was as good as bring there! We will return to try more dishes in our next visit.

    There is no front desk. We just wonder to the patio to grab a small table. One picture on there website for outdoors is not there. Only the one with the blue tables. The picture with the nice outdoors caught my eye. But when you get there, you will be disappointed.

    You just registered that you completed my reservation from three days ago and sat me at my table. However, you know that you were closed when I showed up. I was extremely disappointed and frustrated that you took a reservation knowing you were closed. I showed up, no one was there. And now you want to show I was seated? Why don’t you let Open Table know that they helped you complete a reservation when you weren’t open and didn’t bother telling the customer? Such poor business. In a struggling economy, it’s sad to see a restaurant like yours lose customers permanently.
