The food is delicious and the ambiance feels like you're at a cozy restaurant in a little Greek village. It's casual, but you get 5 star service.

We had been recommended to visit and fortunately booked ahead on Open Table - it was very busy and so we were lucky to get in. You can see why. Really buzzy, with great food and very friendly service. Well worth a visit.

When we want a fine Mediterranean meal, we go to Evvia! The Greek specialties are always a treat. Service is impeccable. Although not inexpensive, the experience is well worth the price. The quality of the food is consistently superb. The wine list is extensive and includes varieties that we have only found during our travels in Greece. Thank you.

I tried to make reservations at Evvia about 2 months before Stanford's graduation weekend, and I was disappointed that Evvia was booked solid Friday - Sunday. Happily I could make a reservation for Thursday dinner. Evvia exceeded our expectations, which were quite high based on glowing reviews. Two of us tried different lamb dishes and one of us had grilled... More

Evvia impressed as a popular and well loved restaurant as evident by the always full reservation schedule. They have an authentically Greek farmhouse ambience with wine barrels and produce adorning the walls and ceilings. We could tell by the faces of those around us and the plates on their tables that we were in for something special. However, that thought... More
