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.

Reviewed February 15, 2006

Evvia restaurant is a fantastic place for friends to gather and share a fantastic meal together. The service is excellent and not overbearing. The Rib Eye steak was cooked perfectly as ordered, and the Lamb was tender and tasty. The appetizers were hot and the salads very distinct in flavor. Nice atmosphere, very cozy and warm. Could be noisy at certain tables but had no problem chatting with friends during a splendid meal. I reccomend this place to everyone I know

“One of Palo Alto's Best”

While it can be crowded, I have never had a bad meal at Evvia. The food is superb, the ambiance warm and unstuffy, and the service excellent.

“Services is awful unless you are a VC”
Reviewed November 2, 2004

Had reservations at 8 and we didn't sit until 8:45. Folks without reservations were passing us by the throngs dressed in monolithic blue coats and rimmed glasses. Maybe it was the $$ they were giving under the table, maybe it was just because they were more important than we were. Service was awful, but thrown together in a mish mash guise of Greek euro sophistication. The food was a joke and could be made in anyone's kitchen. I would NEVER go there again, and furthermore it turned me off to Shallow Alto. I was actually getting to like the place and was giving it a good chance.

The host(s) were incencere puppet/lapdogs to the people who mattered.
