Lunch

We ordered the sampler appetizer and it was good. 3 of us ordered the 3 item lunch special which was also good. The lamb burger was too dry. But their desserts were great! Especially the chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. Patio good place if you have a dog.

We ordered the $24 to $28 dinner entrees and they all tasted great. However, we had to eat more afterward at home because the portions were all too little. Expensive but not enough food and the wait time was about 20 to 25 minutes and I think it was abnormally long with such a small crowd of diners. We ordered... More

The food was "good" at the most. However, the prices were pretty darn high for what you are getting. Wasn't too happy with the experience.

As is typical of Santana Row, very fancy digs. We passed on cocktails and ordered from the solid wine list. Food was pretty straight-forward Mediterranean. The lamb in particular was excellent. Oh, yes. On a Saturday night there was a belly dancer for entertainment.

I had a good dining experience at Thea this weekend. It was easy to reserve a table using OpenTable. The staff was friendly and recommended good options for the food and drinks. We were pleasantly surprised to see a belly dancer during dining hours!

First off- this was originally filed under the wrong reviewer account. SO i am repeating it here and cancelling the other - you may see two identical ones for a time. This is a hard one to review because the restaurant doesn't achieve the pretentiousness of a 1 star michelin wanna be , but it does rise above the regular... More

This is a hard one to review because the restaurant doesn't achieve the pretentiousness of a 1 star michelin wanna be , but it does rise above the regular every day Greek restaurants in the area in the adventuresomeness of its menu. It tries some things that may or may not meet with your palate, but are definitely a step... More

We have been visiting Santana Row the housing shopping complex in San Jose. It is a very well done micro experience of great stores, restaurants and attractive apartments and town houses. So far of all the restaurants we have been to in the area we have had the best culinary experience at Thea Mediterranean. It is Greek cuisine delicious and... More

A large group of us recently enjoyed a pleasant business dinner at Thea. The staff was very friendly, attentive throughout the evening, and made helpful recommendations for meal selections. The food was quite good and flavorful as you'd expect for Med food. The restaurant is a bit noisy when crowded, so not exactly a place for a quiet meal for... More

I don't know who they have at the pass checking the food before it goes out, but they're NOT doing the job of checking the orders before being served. We ordered spanikopita, came out cold, took it back, came out luke warm. Ordered rack of lamb, "medium" came out raw. The only dish served hot was the saganaki but that... More
