First time here in July, and it was a great place. The food was excellent, service was exceptional, and portion sizes were very large. I had no complaints. There was plenty of seating because we came during the lunch rush. Inside our outdoor seating options....More

This restaurant is in an usual location, surrounded by industry and office buildings. But it's worth the search! They have nice outdoor dining, some tables with umbrellas and others under a canopy. There are also tables inside as well. The atmosphere is casual; this is...More

Nice setup away from crowds, easy parking and a few minutes from work in the heart of Silicon Valley. The food was great at very acceptable price. I suggest that if you have a big group to make advanced reservations, it can be crowded.

First off, I only got take out from Athena but must say that the inside of this restaurant is very cute. The menu has lots of great traditional Greek options. I got a basic Ceasar salad with grilled chicken. The amount of chicken was huge,...More

The atmosphere was nice. We were greeted by a very nice older gentleman in a suit. The food, especially the meats were well cooked and the rice had a good flavor. We did not care for the vegetables. They were steed and overcooked. The Greek...More

The service here was spectacular. You can really tell they value their customers and were willing to accommodate requests. The food was really tasty. I had falafel, which was not the best I have had, but still good and flavorful. Everything else was top notch....More

This is a very mediocre representation of Greek food and the service wasn't any better. It's was okay. Not 4 stars. And I have nothing more to say about it.

Since 2002 Athena Grill has been the gastronomic oasis for the best Greek food available in the Silicon Valley and we're excited to continue that tradition with you. We offer healthy portions of delicious, authentic Greek food made fresh daily- using traditional recipes direct from Greece. Our hope is to provide you with a dining experience that will take you on a journey of the sites, aromas, and flavors that has made the Greek cuisine famous around the world. Our dishes are Greek family favorites combining the finest herbs and spices with the freshest ingredients available. When you come to Athena Grill you will have your choice of classic dishes like dolmades, biftekia, mousaka, pastitsio, giouvetsi, gemista, lamb chops, souvlakia and many others. Our freshly made delicious desserts-baklava, galaktoboureko, kataifi, karidopita, ravani, kourabiedes and melomakarona-are better than our own mothers used to make! We have designed the ambience of Athena Grill to give you the feel of a cozy neighborhood restaurant in Athens, also reminiscent of the colorful restaurant in the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." With the blue and white national colors of Greece and authentic artwork lining the walls, and Greek music playing in the background, the interior of the restaurant matches the authenticity of our cuisine. Outside, we have plenty of seating surrounded by lush landscaping, reminiscent of what outdoor dining would typically look like at a Greek neighborhood restaurant. We will always do our very best to provide you with the same dining experience we would provide our own families and appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Thank you very much! Sas efharistoume poli!
