Description: Sister restaurant of Kokkari, Evvia has been serving beautiful and elegant Greek cuisine since 1995. Fabulous fish, savory roasted meats, and sun-soaked vegetables are jazzed up with a spritz of lemon, a little olive oil, and herbs. There is perfection in simplicity.

We had gone to Evvia mid week to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had made reservations and were made to wait for just about 5 minutes as the table was getting ready. Most restaurants have slightly smaller tables to accommodate more people but the one we got here was a decent wide one with enough space to keep food and drinks on without cluttering the top. The host had a very good knowledge of the wines and made it a point to carefully answer all our queries about the food including suggesting the right ones according to our palates. The full wine list apparently runs into several hundreds (we saw the regular one only). The food is good and the portions are decent. The atmosphere is vibrant with a lot of energy around. Overall, a great place to go to.

Evvia is probably the most friendly restaurant that I know. You are in this large room surrounded by colored glass bottles and eating fabulous food with lots of people that feel like family. What could be better? Maybe the lamb...

The food is basically Greek, very tasty and the decor is typically Mediterranean. Kind of pricey but worth it. The place is very popular so for week ends your need to reserve several days ahead.

Our waiter, Hakan, was informative and attentive without being overbearing. Each course was perfection from the simple, yet essential Feta and Olives to our whole, grilled fish, the brussel sprouts, beets (I'm going to try to recreate at home).A tasty Retsina. Finished with delightful Metrio, sweetened espresso, and a poached pear in wine sauce (Rizogalo).

We could not get reservations within 24 hrs. We were concerned it might be very noisy. We wanted an early dinner and called to see if there was bar seating which there was. Our waiter/bartender was excellent and made some wonderful recommendations. The atmosphere was not at all noisy but really beautiful and we were amazed at how many families with little well behaved children there were. I was very surprised how quickly the food came. Ahh, the food....The portions were large. Everything was fresh. I had lamb shank and my wife had the rib eye. Each was done perfectly. We would go back if ever we visit Palo Alto again.
