This was our first time at Evvia. As soon as we arrived at the restaurant, I noticed that the interior of the restaurant reminds me of Kokkari Estiatorio in SF. It's a sister restaurant . Evvia is much smaller but I couldn't complain about the...More

Excellent food, excellent service.... it's sure to send your mind back to traveling in the Greek isles. I just came back, and having a hankering for Greek food, I came here. It was marvelous. If you're a lamb fan (I am), they're roasted over a...More

If you're going to want a taste of delicious Greek food, then Evvia in Palo Alto or Kokkari in San Francisco are the places to go. My friend and I didn't want to contend with traffic or parking, and so we traveled south to the...More

We enjoyed our appetizers of watermelon with Feta, Greek salad, and potato/leek soup. Entrees of salmon and chicken skewer were also very good. Service went well. Really had a nice meal. Would go back.

I love this restaurant! Food is always good but can get pricey. I never miss their lamb meatballs and moussaka. If you are in the area do visit this place.

This is our favorite restaurant in Silicon Valley. Whenever we come to visit or son's family we make Evvia the centerpiece of our weekend. The food is continental/Greek. The outstanding dishes are the calamari appetizer, the lamb chops (best ones outside of New Zealand) and...More

Sister restaurant of Kokkari, Evvia has been serving beautiful and elegant Greek cuisine since 1995. Fabulous fish, savory roasted meats, and sun-soaked vegetables are jazzed up with a spritz of lemon, a little olive oil, and herbs. There is perfection in simplicity.
