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.

I spent a week doing a Jazz Residency at Stanford University. I ate at Evvia every night (that's right, 6 nights in a row!!). It suited me well because the location was convenient, the atmosphere was wonderful, the staff were generous, genuine and gracious - both professional and personal.

I loved the food (obviously!), and had no reason, nor interest, in dining elsewhere. Evvia provided me with everything I was looking for. It was very well patronized, yet even though I was dining on my own, this presented no problem to the restaurant, and I was welcomed and felt valued.

As a person who dines out several times a week, every week, 52 weeks of the year, year in-year out, I have NO hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

I was on a business trip to Palo Alto and Evvia was so good that I went there twice during my trip. The first night I have the Katsiki Yiouvetsi (braised goat), which was very tender, and had lots of flavor. The second night I had the lamb chops, which were the best I've had.

Reservations are a must. Ambiance is nice, with the front of the restaurant being open to the street. BYO was nice, but they charged a $20 corkage fee.
