I go here during lunch time, no parking between 11:30 to 1 PM(need to walk for 3-5 minutes usually ). The place is clean and the owners are here and ensure things go smoothly, but a little bit expensive however not a concern. Lunch usually costs 12-15$ here but definitely worth it. They also seve your dish within 5 minutes... More

This place is really in a location that is not where you'd expect to find such a special eatery. And once you get inside, you definitely know you're in a Greek restaurant! The Kebobs are the best I've ever had. Their hummus is tasty and they have an aioli sauce that is unbelievable. Like others have stated, their fresh had... More

I went there for lunch and asked for pita of swordfish. It was fastly served and extremely good. The fish was perfectly cooked and the tzaziki fresh and tasty. Definitely one of the best meals I had in the bay area.

Found this place through an on line search and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the Greek favorites. It is a casual place in an industrial area but lots of people come after work and the place got very busy. I had the gyro which was very filling and we shared a salad which was very large,... More

I look for Greek food wherever I travel and am frequently disappointed by what I find. Not this time. I enjoyed the funky "Greek" décor of the Athena and was very pleased with the food. Dining by myself I decided to go with an appetizer combo. On the menu it listed it to include dolmades, Greek sausage, gyros, spanakopita, biftekia,... More

I know it's a Greek place. But I'm Greek and I wanted good pizza with feta cheese on it. We got the geek Mediterranean thick crust pizza. It hit the spot. The dough was perfect, and not an over load of sauce. And just the right amount of mozzarella, and feta cheese. My half also had kalamata olives on it... More

Went to lunch at Athena Grill with a colleague. We both felt it was very good. I had a chicken wrap which was super tasty. Its a little strange on the ordering but they are very efficient at getting the meals made and out.

Very generous portions and reasonably priced. We prefer coming here for dinner as it's typically less chaotic than lunch time.

Very nice falafel plate, wrap as well as baklava, It gets very busy at lunch and parking is a little challenging but the food is worth it

Overall, I would have to say that this restaurant is just OK. I had the lamb. It was a little dry, and the vegetables were overcooked. However, some of my friends where happy with their dinners, so maybe I just ordered the wrong dish.
