Delicious food in a warm and inviting environment. A little bit pricey but well worth it.
all was very good but our waiter forgot about refilling our water glasses after we paid. would have liked more water while we visited. otherwise, excellent.
This was my first visit after hearing about it from many friends. The food was amazing from start to finish! We had the special salad, fish and dessert. All were the best I had ever had. Loved it and will return soon.
Excellent service and amazing food. This place is an institution of great food
We enjoyed our meal and the service from our waiter. Were a little surprised at the cost of the wines. Some Cabernet Sauvignon we know the price of, was more than five times the retail cost. I understand restaurants mark prices up, but this was exceptional.
We have dined at Evvia in Palo Alto and the San Francisco location several times. We've never been disappointed. The rotisserie pork special of the evening was cooked to perfection, succulent and a hefty portion. Others had the fish entrees of salmon and sole, no one was disappointed. Accompanying sides were the Greek salad and octopus appetizer. Both were well appreciated. For dessert we had the nectarine and cherry tart with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. The crust was mouthwateringly crumbly and buttery. Had I not surprisingly eaten my entire entree, I could have had a full dessert but it was big enough to share.
The service was prompt and friendly. The atmosphere lively and we were seated by an open doorway, which made the noise level tolerable in terms of conversation. Evvia is a restaurant to which we return when in the Palo Alto or San Francisco area.
Our favorite restaurant
Always a treat to dine here. Food is delicious, service is phenomenal. Thank you!
Great for business or personal, always consistently delicious
Delicious lunch, great service, nice decor! will be definitely back
One of our favorite restaurants, but so popular that it's not possible to have dinner here spontaneous any more. We came for an anniversary celebration and had a great time. The grilled octopus, riblets, whole fish, and lamb skewer were all spot on and delicious. Service was solid, and the host came by to ensure everything was to our satisfaction at the end of our meal. Despite an early reservation (5:30pm), we didn't feel rushed to leave, and I really appreciated that since we were having a great conversation. Thanks!
What a great find! we enjoyed our time there tremendously. The staff was very considerate and professional but not overwhelming and the ambiance is understated elegant. We will be back.
I used to be a big fan of evvia, until this lunch with my team, the wait between appetizers and entries really ruined our lunch experience, I dont get what made us have to wait 30 mins between our appetizers and entries without providing any explanations. Yes, I can see lunch time, the restaurant is pretty busy , but that cannot explain the long wait。 My fish arrived without having salt or favor on it, I could barely finished half of it.
Super disappointed, I would not recommend to my friends especially for the lunch
Dinner for two. Server was wonderful, very attentive with good timing. Kept the food & drink coming and never impeded the flow of conversation. Both ordered fish. Perfectly done. Just a great time.
Best Restaurant in Palo Alto in our opinion.
Each course was too heavy. I do not recommend those who likes rather gentle tastes.
We LOVE Evvia. Our favorite go-to for special occasions.
Excellent service and delicious food. Enjoyed the lamb chops. I have the same dish every time we come! Can't wait to come back.
Great atmosphere, food and service!
We had a lovely early dinner. The food was fantastic🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
We had 4 appetizers, the spanakopita, the lamb meatballs, the grilled artichoke and eggplant skewers, and the English Pea Salad... all were extremely good.
We shared the Moussaka for the main and the Baklava for dessert, both were wonderful. The service was very good but a little fast paced. The dining room is nice but it was totally full so it was a bit noisy.
We will definitely come back again when we are in the area
So we have eaten her many times over the last 12 years and the food on this occasion was a bit off. Still very good, but not worth $200 for what we had. Also had to flag down the waiter to get another glass of wine. This was bit shocking too. We are not food snobs by any stretch, but when going here for our anniversary dinner and paying top-dollar, it was a bit of a dissapointment.
Lastly, they called me 2 days in a row to confirm my reservation. Would they cancel if I hadn't called back? Not sure they should be on OpenTable if they are going to bother you during work hours about confirming.
EVVIA if you can get a reservation is great! Lamb chops were excellent!
Great food and excellent service. This is just last of my many visits. Can’t wait to repeat it.
Taking mom to a surprise dinner. Great service and an amazing meal.
Great food and excellent service!
We loved every bite: watermelon salad, gigante beans, chicken kabob. And the service was perfection.
Best Greek food in the Bay Area!!
Lamb chop is not as our expectations. Same price can get 3 piece with better flavor at taramine but only 2 at Evvia.
The food was great and the service was excellent! I made a reservation for 2 for my husband's birthday. His son decided to come and they were very nice to accommodate us at the last minute. Much appreciated!
my fav restaurant in bay area, every time we come we have amazing time and good experience
Always delicious and terrific service!
Th ambiance at Evvia is very warm and welcoming! The food is fabulous and all of the employees work hard to make sure you enjoy your dining experience!
Good service, good food !
Our reservation was for noon. We arrived at the restaurant at 12:05 pm and they had given our table away. While the Manager came to speak with us at 12:20 pm and sat us at the bar and offered us complementary drinks (which we declined as it was in the middle of the day), they only seated us at a table at 12:45 pm.
Evvia never disappoints. I was entertaining an out of town guest who was thrilled with the delicious dinner. Thank you. Thank
We went two nights in a row. The first night it took our waiter about 45 minutes to take our order. The food overall is delicious. The second night my wife asked for ravioli and the taste was not to our liking the rest of the dishes were super good.
Highly recommend Evvia. The ambience, the food and the service couldn't be any better.
The food and superb. The service it depends on who your server is . The first night we went David was our server and he took about 45 minutes to take our order. The second day was Sarah and she was more attentive.
I and my boyfriend had lunch at Evvia. All the dishes were delicious and the service was great.
Amazing food, ambiance and service!
