This is one of our go to restaurants in San Carlos. Food is very very good. Service is excellent, great ambiance. Love the small plates as much as the hearty robust full plates. Only criticism is the small plate menu does not seem to change much over time and I wish it would.

Happy Hour is quite good - but you have to ask for the happy hour menu. It may not be offered to you. Wines are good - and half price during happy hour times - come just in time. Tacos and sliders are quite good. For dinner, try some of the more "Greek" dishes. They tend to be more general... More

We went here for my husband's birthday. Jennifer (the bartender waitress) is bubbly and super-friendly/enthusiastic. She made sure we knew we were welcomed. The drinks are delicious (mixed or wine); the chicken dishes and moussaka are made well. Salads are fresh and what you'd expect in a California restaurant (micro greens, nuts, fruits). If you're in San Carlos, Mythos is... More

We were looking forward to having dinner here. Very inviting restaurant. We each ordered a salad. My husband the classic Mediterranean and mine a green salad with dates and walnuts. Both were very good. I did notice that my husband's salad was much nicer looking and almost twice as big as the same salad at the table next to us.... More

Great place to dine in our local town. Food is well prepared and seasoned. Drinks are excellent. Service could be better - they are all nice but just sometimes a bit slow. This is a great neighborhood restaurant.

I dined here with my 14 year old daughter tonight. We both enjoyed the pumpkin soup as our starter. It was light and very nice. It was flavorful and was more like a pumpkin "vegetable" soup than the creamier pumpkin bisque that I'm used to. Nevertheless it was very good. We did have to ask for bread (which wasn't delivered...

This promising looking Greek restaurant consistently disappoints. Average meal for expensive prices. Nonchalant service. More for the younger, after work crowd. I enjoy delicious Greek food-- go elsewhere for this experience.

This is just a sorry, disappointing place. I've gone several times for cocktails and once for dinner and found the staff to be unspeakably rude and the food bad. This is all too bad, as the rebuild of the interior and the location are excellent, but my recommendation is to avoid Mythos totally.

It's hard to eat enough vegetables when I travel so finding Mythos (by chance) and then a delicious vegan entree (by choice) was wonderful. Each component was seasoned perfectly: polenta, kale, eggplant, zucchini, hummus and quinoa salad. Combined with a lamb rib let appetizer it was a great meal. Bob loved his skirt steak and the fries that soaked up... More
