Evvia is an upscale restaurant in Palo Alto near University Avenue, offering a fantastic selection of wines and Greek cuisine. It is suggested to make a reservation well in advance if you would not like to be disappointed. The larger the group, the earlier should the reservations we made. My friend made the reservation almost 2 months prior for 15 people. They also offer a pre-planned and agreed upon fixed menu for your guests if so desired.
If you are familiar with this area, you must know that parking is a big pain. So if you would like to save the $6 plus tip valet parking charge (very reasonable), do arrive 20 mins. earlier to find a parking spot. We used valet which was very convenient. The restaurant is not large and is always packed. They really do have a large selection of good wines including a large reserve collection. Service was very good and server – guest ratio was higher than many other restaurants. The quality of food was very good including the desserts but quite pricey. Ambiance was quite good though a bit too noisy perhaps due to the densely packed tables.
