    Dio Deka and their wonderful staff did an outstanding job last night. Tony is one of the best waiters in this region. It’s always a pleasure to dine and celebrate at this excellent restaurant.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Dio Deka. The food was delicious, and the kitchen was accommodating for plant-based options. The restaurant was full when we dined, and the service was very good. We will definitely dine at Dio Deka when we travel to Los Gatos again.

    This restaurant is not suitable for vegetarians. They have vegetarian options but the food does not look very appealing and will leave you hungry. The portion sizes are quite small and the food is expensive. We have been here twice but don’t plan to return.

    It’s our favorite restaurant here in Los Gatos. It’s been a while since we’ve been there. The new chefs dishes were fantastic and Petros was great to see as well as it was lovely to meet Alexa the bartender who knows everything about everything. I can’t say enough good things about you and we’ll be back soon.

    I’ve been here many times over the years, unfortunately, tonight was not a good night for them. They forgot some of our food, my lamb was undercooked, the noise level was high enough that it was hard to talk. It was strange, and for those prices, it was a serious disappointment. Hopefully they were just having an off moment because they’ve been a solid player in my restaurant rotation for years and years.

    Reservation somehow moved to my wife’s name so initially they could not find our reservation. Next time I’ll print the confirmation. The menu had good selection but octopus appetizer very small. I commented I needed a magnifying glass to see it! Certainly they could do better for the price and if they want me to come back. Main.courses were good size except the lobster/fettuccine. Two or three dime size pieces of lobster. Would I come back? Yes but not in a while, there are many other venues with good food and not skimpy dishes.

    The food has changed a lot since our last visit: it was extremely salty, dark in presentation ( foraged mushrooms, roasted baby potatoes), and unpleasantly sweet on the desert ( baklava, loukoumades) . Th octopus as good and so was the service.

    We used to come to Dio Deka 15-16 years ago, and it was quite good. But after we moved away from the area, we found other places. In the last year or so we've been hearing great things about the food from friends who live in the Los Gatos / Saratoga area, but dismissed them as exaggeration. And then, a couple of days ago, I found out that Chef Nikos Moulinos had moved to Dio Deka a couple of years ago. The next day we were there. And, oh boy, was it good. Every dish we had was outstanding: the moussaka with duck meat (who other than Chef Nikos would have thought to combine two of my favorite tastes?), the lobster pasta, the octopus, the thalassomezes (seafood sampler), the spanakopita, everything was mouthwatering. And the desserts? Forget about it: the loukoumades (donut beignets drenched in Greek honey), the ekmek (kataifi with an amazing cream topping), and the sokolatina (chocolate cheesecake) are all in my Top 10 all-time dessert list. My only regret: That I didn't know about Chef Nikos being there earlier; I missed a couple of years of enjoying this wonderful food. And last, but not least, I should add that our dinner was made even better by the excellent service we received from everyone, but especially Darrin, who took great care of us at our table, and Sakis, who made us feel very welcome as we came in. All in all, a wonderful experience worth the long drive.

    We enjoyed our dining experience very much. The hostess and female manager were both very friendly and accommodating!! She not only chatted with us and has a great sense of humor but she honored our request for burgundy stemware and kept our Champagne glasses perfectly topped off without over pouring. The lamb was perfectly served as requested as were all the dishes. Thank you for a perfect dinner experience. James and Anna

    Service was impeccable. True decline in food quality from Dio Deka years ago. We were told that the signature lamp chops needed to be cooked medium due to fat content. Outside of being overly done, they were overly seasoned- very salty. Octopus was half the size it used to be for $22. Spreads were flavorless. Best dishes were beets, pita bread, and beignets. Dio Deka needs to revamp.

    Overall good experience, staff was extremely friendly, service was even better during the meals. Only small annoyance was having to wait 30 minutes during a valentines day special despite having a reservation and arriving on time. Can't even fault the staff too much as they informed me a couple was past their 2 hour limit. They were respectable the entire time and tried to do their best to keep checking. I voiced my complaint eventually and an individual who seemed to be a headwaiter went out of his way to find a better table for us. Food was interesting and made for a great experience. Ambiance was nice and the rose and letting the customers keep the specialized menu was definitely a nice touch for that holiday.

    IMHO, Dio Deka remains the #1 destination restaurant in Los Gatos, a town known for its outstanding eateries. Clearly, the best Greek food in the entire Bay Area. The V-Day menu choices were terrific and each course was delicious. We'll likely do this again next year.

    Loved the place but the food was a bit undercooked (chops) and we asked the staff to finish it which they did and it was generally good but not the best we’ve eaten. Probably will skip if we’re ever again celebrating Valentine’s Day. Paying $500 for 2 with tips, I expect to have the best quality of food. Both salad and the sweets were very nice tho

    Creative menu and nice ambiance. The prices reflect fine dining but unfortunately the service lacked on several fronts and is the main reason for the lower stars. The quality of food was definitely fine dining. But the service failed in these ways: took 28 min for a waiter to come over. When asked about the house specialties, the waiter just rattled off everything. Then went away for another 20 min after he knew we brought our own wine, before he came back opened it. He looked at it and said "OK, this looks good enough to decant". Yes, it was a good bottle, but anyway, if you pay a corkage, it shouldn't be the waiter's decision if it is 'good enough' to decant--and how embarrassing if it wasn't! Then he asked if we wanted a starter and we said yes, and then he said, well can I take your dinner order at the same time then? So that's not a 'fine dining' move either. It was not super busy and they looked fully staffed. Food came out, and waiter did not ONCE come back to see how it was, and neither did anyone else. And one lamb chop was rare and I had to send it back to be cooked more...the busboy did that for us. We ordered dessert and again someone else brought it and nobody ever checked back in until the waiter offered boxes and the bill. One more thing that bugged me for being an expensive dinner: they set a champagne stand right next to me (1ft from my elbow) as I was an end seat of a long bench, that the busboys used to dump ice when they cleared the tables. It filled up eventually and they took it and brought back an empty one to continue on. So for nearly a nearly $300 dinner for 2, we were truly disappointed in the service. Food was great, but for that money, and on a special night out for us, the service was not special and subpar all the way through the night. I have never left a poor review on OT, but felt this was warranted.

    Superb dining experience. For an appetizer we had the soft, warm homemade pita bread with three different spreads, which was a flavorful assortment. My husband had the petite filet and I had the branzino for entrees, which were both perfectly cooked and so delicious. We finished with the loukoumathes which were a sweet end to an outstanding meal. Our waiter, Marcos, was friendly, attentive, and on point with suggestions. All the staff were anticipating our needs, and we never had to look for anyone. We would definitely dine here again.

    Excellent food. However! The waiter appeared to be on speed, and his energetic check-ins felt like he was rushing us through the meal. We ordered 5 appetizers and drinks, instead of a more regular meal, and the bill was well over $250, but we felt pressure to order an "entree" - No! And the tables are crammed so close together that we could not tell whether we were in our conversation or the one being carried on by the two people sitting to our left, or to our right. Don't ruin your excellent kitchen's effort with terrible service and greedy overcrowding... is my message to Dio Deka.
