We have always enjoyed dinning at Dio Deko in the past. The food and service has always been outstanding. This time however, the food was delicious but we had to wait quite a long time for our meals. It was close to 45 minutes from the time the removed our appetizer plates to when they delivered our main courses and that was after I asked how the timing was going. Two in our party were hungry and it ruined their dining experience.
I hope this was a one off as we would love to return to dining here but honestly we were all a little disappointed this time.

Dio Deka never disappoints. From the curated wine list to the perfect food menu and the impeccable service. This is why we return to Dio Deka time and again. It is one of our favorite restaurants and we look forward to returning again soon.

The riblet appetizer was AMAZING. Meat fell right off the bone and was sooo tasty
The lamb chops were OK, would have been nice at that price if a side came with it.

They were out of pork chops, crab cakes, and Spanokapita. The mousaka wasn't hot. Their Cusco Sour is all wrong - not blended and no egg. Their grilled octopus was fishy. And the bill was $60 a plate.

This was our first outing since the start of the pandemic and it was wonderful outdoor dining. We were relaxed and felt very safe at our table far from others. Our waiter Anthony was very helpful with both food and wine selections. It was a big celebration for us of anniversary and birthday and a raise for our daughter. All a lot of fun with good food and family.

First of our waiter was absolutely amazing, I forgot his name but he is from the northern region of Italy near Lake Garda. Super attentive, great knowledge of menus and ingredients. All his suggestions were a hit.
The food was amazing. Octopus, followed by Lamb chops, my wife had a whole fish which our waiter de-boned in from of us.
The wine was delicious.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary, we are really happy we went here that evening.
We will return soon, to try some of our our other favorites on the menu.

I knew it would be outstanding and surely was not disappointed. Dio Deka just takes the dining experience to another level. It was also fun watching the chefs, sous chefs and manager making sure each dish was perfect before going out. I left my glasses at home and our server brought out a box of readers!

The Mediterranean Grilled Fish we ordered was nothing special and it tasted bland, but the price was outrageous! We have no problem paying for an outrageous price if the food is truly worth it! We ate here before but this is our last dining here. And they charge 4% surcharge on your bill. Again, no problem paying the surcharge if the experience and the food is truly Michelin star.

We once again enjoyed a lovely outdoor patio dining experience at Dio Deka. The appetizers and mains were delicious. Service was a bit slow which is unusual but we believed it was because of a rather demanding table that our server also had to take care of. We will definitely go again.

The food was good but it is over-priced and although our waiter worked very hard and was well informed, he was rushed. I think they are understaffed, as are many places these days. If you have money to burn, try it.

It was nice to sit outside and the heaters provided warmth. The service was very good. The food was not as expected, flavorless in some cases, overcooked in another case. The food is overpriced for the quality.

I heard great things about Dio Deka, but was so disappointed. The menu is basic, you could get it at Opa:( Spreads and pita bread, spanakopita that is ok, the salmon was basic with farro and a butter sauce, the filet mignon was cooked nicely, but everything on the plate seemed outdated. Recipes from 20 years ago. If you want a fine dinning experience worth the money go to Le Papillon, Manresa, or Plummer Horse. I left feeling annoyed that we waisted a nice dinner here.

The food here is always outstanding. I love the lamb meatballs and tried the crab cake for the first time and it was delicious. All of the meat dishes are outstanding and the beignets and the baklava are great. The only frustrating thing for me is that we have been coming here for years and always stay at the Hotel Los Gatos. They no longer allow you to charge to the room. So I had come down without my wallet expecting to charge it to the room with no luck.

Horrible experience. I like their food generally but I specifically requested a “good table, not in a corner outside” for a birthday and they assured me on the phone, yes. We got there and they stuck us in the worst table, in a corner, next to the stand where the order screen and bussing items are. Every 2-3 minutes, staff was using it and right on top of us. I asked a gentleman that looked like a manager who kept going there if I spoke to him earlier on the phone about my requesting a specific type of table and that I ended up with the opposite. His response was “I don’t answer the phone.” He didn’t even try to resolve or inquire about it. Not one word to ask me if further about the issue. He definitely appeared to be a manager. Further, our server was too bothered to bring out the large porter house for a photo before cutting , despite fact he was our server and offered (his idea) to do that a couple months prior. He acted very rude about the request like it was ridiculous . Very snobby. I ordered the most expensive red by the glass—not at all a fair full standard poor. Ridiculous, but we didn’t complain. Husbsnd said he remembered that last time as well. Husband said we are not coming back. Not treated well for spending nearly 600 dollars. I still left full tip however given pandemic etc. they think they are above folks and need to put customers first. Very overpriced and not comparable to Evvia or Kokari.
