We went here with a group of friends and we were not impressed. The room could be nice but they had live music which was a lady pretty much screaming into a microphone. She did not need the mic in that room at all. We all had headaches by the end of our meal. Service was slow! We waited ages... More

We had dinner at Thea Mediterranean Cuisine following a movie at the theatre immediately adjacent. The ambience is rather cavernous and moderately unattractive but the food was good. My wife enjoyed the daily fish which she described as among the best fish dishes she has had. My half chicken was not as hot as it should have been but otherwise... More

It was my birthday and we decided to take a decent meal at this place. Was thoroughly disappointed with quality of food. We had Falafal with hummus, Greek Godess, Pesto, Vegetable Moussaka but neither taste nor presentation of food was up to the mark. Service was very casual. A very disappointing experience.

I'm a picky eater and was hesitant to eat Greek food but this was a business dinner so I thought I would go with the flow. Appetizers was great and I played it safe with filet and potatoes. Great! Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals and wine. We were seated quickly at 5:30 on a week night but it... More

Our team visited this gem during lunch today, which was more pleasant than expected. I initially thought the lunch menu was a bit short, however I was surprised at the offerings once I finished reading the details. Food was fresh, tasted good, and service came with a smile. Our server made us feel welcome and comfortable. The bread through me... More

There was Belly dancing on weekends.. awesome food, lovely dance and music enjoyed every bit of it while my 4 month old son was sleep quietly in... More

You know when you get an average return for a reasonable amount of effort? That is what this place is like. It was decent but not excellent. Little expensive for the smaller dishes but I guess the atmosphere at santana row comes with a price. The best thing about this meal was learning how to make a jamison martini.. that... More

Am not a great fan of Mediterranean food on the whole but this place was good. We were a large group which meant we could order lots of different things to share. Good service.
