This is a favorite "special" restaurant for my family. You just MUST have the saganaki opa! because they bring it to your table and ~flame~ it!! Plus it is quite delicious. The other appetizer that you may want to order one for each person because they are melt-in-your-mouth, I-don't-want-to-share amazing! are the dates. I know that sounds kinda dull after,... More

Ruth was a delight during our visit. There were only a few patrons present, so it is hard to tell how service would be on a busy night. The salad too heavy on the dressing. The menu says green goddess, it tasted more like olive oil vinaigrette, heavy on the vinegar. The asparagus tasted like lighter fluid, and HOT chili... More

We enjoyed the ambiance of this restaurant & the meals, however the service was average. The venue is large & open with high ceilings with a nice relaxed feel. For appetizers we had the Lamb flatbread, then we shared the scallops & mash which was 5 plump & nicely cooked scallops each placed on a bed of mash, very tasty... More

This night we started with the mezzie sampler tower - yes, tower. Delicious morsels of different Greek bites - hummus, falafel, olives, feta fries (awesome), fried rice balls and dates wrapped with bacon. The entire table ordered the grilled shrimp on a zucchini cake with arugula salad on top. Light, wonderful and perfectly cooked. Wine can be ordered by the... More

I have eaten at a lot of the restaurants on Santana Row but did not have the opportunity to try this place. It was fabulous. If you like Mediterranean, you will love this restaurant. We decided to just eat appetizers because there were so many we liked. We had the Tapas Sampler and waiter was kind to swap out one... More

I did not know what to expect at the restaurant. It was not crowded as the other restaurants were on Santana Row at 6:30pm on a Saturday night. Once I stepped into the restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised by the dining area with soaring ceiling and plenty of floor to ceiling windows. My husband had the lamb, my son had... More

Group of 14 of us from the office ate there last night. Service was brilliant, Micaela, our server was to die for. Incredibly attentive and efficient. The food was amazing, every course was well cooked and delicious. There was enough choices on the menu to cater for everyone but not so much that you felt overwhelmed. Would definitely eat there...

We were a table of 3 who chose Thea Mediterranean Cuisine for a business dinner. No reservations were necessary for our 6:00 dinner. We had the Tapas Sampler for the appetizer, and this was more than enough for the three of us. It would certainly do well for a table of four. We each chose the Lamb Souvlaki for the... More

Our friends raved about this place in Santana Row but I think they have recently changed chef and changed menu items. The food was mediocre at best?! Not at all good value for the prices of the entrees. The date app was very very tasty and so was the tzatziki app w warm pita bread. The entrees were quite small... More
