Since 2002 Athena Grill has been the gastronomic oasis for the best Greek food available in the Silicon Valley and we're excited to continue that tradition with you. We offer healthy portions of delicious, authentic Greek food made fresh daily- using traditional recipes direct from Greece. Our hope is to provide you with a dining experience that will take you on a journey of the sites, aromas, and flavors that has made the Greek cuisine famous around the world. Our dishes are Greek family favorites combining the finest herbs and spices with the freshest ingredients available. When you come to Athena Grill you will have your choice of classic dishes like dolmades, biftekia, mousaka, pastitsio, giouvetsi, gemista, lamb chops, souvlakia and many others. Our freshly made delicious desserts-baklava, galaktoboureko, kataifi, karidopita, ravani, kourabiedes and melomakarona-are better than our own mothers used to make! We have designed the ambience of Athena Grill to give you the feel of a cozy neighborhood restaurant in Athens, also reminiscent of the colorful restaurant in the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." With the blue and white national colors of Greece and authentic artwork lining the walls, and Greek music playing in the background, the interior of the restaurant matches the authenticity of our cuisine. Outside, we have plenty of seating surrounded by lush landscaping, reminiscent of what outdoor dining would typically look like at a Greek neighborhood restaurant. We will always do our very best to provide you with the same dining experience we would provide our own families and appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Thank you very much!

Decent Greek Food in Town

Serving decent greek food. Recommended to give it a try. However, please avoid the peak lunch hour or you will find a long line from the counter.

If you like off the beaten path, this is an out of place eatery. Good Greek food! Staff is friendly. Indoor & outdoor seating available. Home made desserts.

This is my go to place for greek food. The service is consistently good. The hummas is some of the best I ever had. Gyros are fresh. The Gyro meat on top of a greek salad is really good. It gets crowded at lunch so make sure you get there early.

Very friendly and active proprietor that likes to take care of his customers. Great corner location with some patio seating. This place gets busy for lunch, but they move quickly and have an efficient kitchen operation. The food is pretty good, and the internet is fast, so also very good place if you need to work and eat at the... More

We looked for a Greek place because we don't find good Greek food where we live, and this place really delivered - luckily they have recently started opening on Saturdays. They have a nice little patio, with an enclosure to keep the wind out, with typical blue and white decor. The service was excellent - very welcoming! The servers were... More

Seven of us went for lunch to this restaurant, two of them being children with good appetites. We were extremely well fed, but we had to go to the counter to order and then the food was brought to the table. For this reason, I rated it 'AVERAGE'. For the food, I rate it 'VERY GOOD'. There are other restaurants... More

I went with a number of colleagues (more turned up later, and were accommodated), and we had a good selection of Mezes, salads and main courses. There was a decent (but not over-large) selection of wines, include both Californian and Greek examples (including a decent Retsina, are far as I could tell). Staff were friendly and the food was excellent.

Food was very good. Especially for this country. This was as good as any I've had in Chicago or Toronto. Service started out poor (I stood for 10 minutes waiting for service when I arrived), but once assigned a waiter it was excellent.
