Kovo has become a weekly dinner partner. The food is wonderful--always fresh, creative, and delicious. We learned last night that the restaurant will close at the end of this week. We hope it will reopen at another location soon.

A bit on the pricier side for Mediterranean food, but generous portions make up for that. Could use more draft beer selections. In fact, did not even have the Lagunitas IPA I selected. Happy Hour MUST be extended to 7:00. Otherwise delicious. Keep up the good work.

Shared some small plates. All good, presented beautifully. We were there early so not sure about noise when there are more people there. Tables were amply spaced.

My mom and I found this restaurant while I was visiting her over the weekend. We were looking for something new, and we’ve had trouble finding Greek food that we really enjoyed in the East Valley.

With the wonderful food and service at Kovo, we now have a go-to spot for Greek food. Portions were extremely generous, before tip we had only spent about $50 (Including a cocktail), and mom was able to take home enough for her dinner the following day. We got there early enough to take advantage of happy hour specials. We tasted our way through starters and sides, then we were too full to order a main course. On our next visit we look forward to trying items further down the menu!

Food and service were very good! Portions were great! Manager Pavlos was very attentive. Unfortunately, we could not eat outside because there are no misters. Hence, no 5 stars!

Tried KOVA for some Mediterranean food based on reviews. It’s a rather casual place but the food is fantastic. Bruschetta is a list to try. Same for the grilled octopus. Finally the white pizza. Everything was very good. Service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend!!!

I really did not appreciate the employee sweeping the floor while we were sitting there and he was cleaning tables, he was moving tables and chairs around, making a lot of noise.

We went there to enjoy our time not to be aggravated!

Gave Kovo a try for the first time last night. Really pleasantly surprised to find this hidden gem. Started with the octopus - cooked perfectly! Also ordered the Patatas Griegas - discovered that perfectly fried french fries tossed with oregano, feta, and lemon juice are AMAZING and ADDICTIVE!

Also enjoyed the Blanco pizza, but had to bring most of it home as we were full of those amazing french fries.

Don't miss the Mount Vesuvius cocktail - brilliant presentation!

We have eaten at Kovo several times and the food and the service is always excellent. We had the meat platter (fabulous) and the vegetarian mousakka which was also delicious. We had two desserts, the donuts and the pastry with the custard both of which were absolutely fantastic. We eat out A LOT all over the valley and in some of the most high end restaurants but when we want great Mediterranean food with great service and a nice atmosphere we come to KOVO!!

The hostess sat us at a table that didn’t have a waiter/waitress assigned to it. We had to wait 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us and provided service.

Our eventual waitress was great and saved the day for the restaurant!

The food was fantastic!!

My husband And I were in town and dined with another couple. The servers and manager took great care of us. The food was very good. The portions were huge. The wine selection was varied and enjoyable. If we lived there, we were definitely return. The other couple had not been there before and they will be back. The happy hours sound like a great deal, and they will definitely be exploring that.

Very good food and service. We enjoyed our dinner. Being seniors the decor is a bit industrial and we probably prefer a cozier decor but it was very clean. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

We had a really nice evening at KOVO. We sat on the patio which was very comfortable and pretty quiet. The food was excellent. Each one in our party of four got a different dish and everyone was very pleased with their choice. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. I definitely recommend KOVO for an all around great experience!
