It's a lovely restaurant and has a great ambience. We had dinner there on weekend with my family. The service was simply awesome! Our waitress was very friendly and offered us her recommendations. 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.

Dined here as a party of 5. Let the waiter pick a selection of starters for the group, and they were all very tastey. All mains were of good quality. The main meal for one of our party was a little late in being served, and the waiter was generous enough not to charge us for it. Nice atmosphere. Would... More

Four of us met for a business dinner at Thea, all looking forward to good Greek food, and Thea delivered. It wasn't our first time there, nor is it likely to be our last. As we enjoyed our before-dinner drinks -- glasses of pinot grigio for two, a martini for another, and an ouzo neat for me -- we ordered... More

I cannot be a judge of Greek food as mostly I don't usually choose a Greek or Turkish restaurant to go to. All I can say is the scallop dish I had was very good, very fresh. The vegetables delicious too. Came with a mash potato. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Was here for a friends birthday and the woman who... More

This is an old favorite at Santana Row. Always go there before or after a movie but this time just for dinner. Food was good and the service was great. Strangely, no Greek red wines??

What a great restaurant! This was my third visit, and my only complaint is that I wish I lived in the area so I could visit more often. The flaming cheese appetizer is both fun and yummy, and everyone at the table loved it. My favorite entree is their scallops. Perfectly prepared.

Has a business dinner at Thea, and was greatly disappointed. It's in a good location, quiet, and has comfortable outside seating. But only one Greek wine on the menu? Bad start. The Saganaki Opa was definitely just average. I enjoyed my Vegetable Moussaka, but a companion was strenuously negative about his Chicken Souvlaki. The biggest negatives happened with dessert, with... More

The food and wine choices are very good. We really liked the outdoor eating, but found the the restaurant to be slightly overpriced. The place can get very busy and suggest reservations.
