First off, I only got take out from Athena but must say that the inside of this restaurant is very cute. The menu has lots of great traditional Greek options. I got a basic Ceasar salad with grilled chicken. The amount of chicken was huge, 2 breasts, which actually allowed me to split this over 2 meals. The baklava was... More

The atmosphere was nice. We were greeted by a very nice older gentleman in a suit. The food, especially the meats were well cooked and the rice had a good flavor. We did not care for the vegetables. They were steed and overcooked. The Greek salad dressing was bland. We had Baklava and yogurt for desert. Both were tasty but.... More

The service here was spectacular. You can really tell they value their customers and were willing to accommodate requests. The food was really tasty. I had falafel, which was not the best I have had, but still good and flavorful. Everything else was top notch. Welcome atmosphere, casual and relaxing. Would definitely go again!

This is a very mediocre representation of Greek food and the service wasn't any better. It's was okay. Not 4 stars. And I have nothing more to say about it.

I've been coming to Athena Grill for years. What brings me there time after time is the authenticity and great service. I tried both meat and seafood dishes. All of them are delicious and presented well, not to mention hummus and olive spread. And if you are a fan of true Greek style coffee you'd enjoy it at Athena. After... More

Delicious, great service and such authentic flavorful food. The gyro platter was a great value, huge salad, great olive-garlic dip too. We would definitely come back.

This was a treat and a surprise. We worked a 12 hr shift. We were starving. On our way back to the hotel and saw our granddaughters name. We knew it had to be a Greek place (one of our favorite meal types) and decided to try it. The staff was super friendly. Outside seating is done superbly. We ordered... More

The food here is wonderful - fresh, delicious and plentiful. You can sit inside or out, have some nice Greek wine and at dinner they offer table service. The service is excellent (even at lunch) and their fluffy amazing pita is perfect.

Description
Since 2002 Athena Grill has been the gastronomic oasis for the best Greek food available in the Silicon Valley and we're excited to continue that tradition with you. We offer healthy portions of delicious, authentic Greek food made fresh daily- using traditional recipes direct from Greece. Our hope is to provide you with a dining experience that will take you on a journey of the sites, aromas, and flavors that has made the Greek cuisine famous around the world. Our dishes are Greek family favorites combining the finest herbs and spices with the freshest ingredients available. When you come to Athena Grill you will have your choice of classic dishes like dolmades, biftekia, mousaka, pastitsio, giouvetsi, gemista, lamb chops, souvlakia and many others. Our freshly made delicious desserts-baklava, galaktoboureko, kataifi, karidopita, ravani, kourabiedes and melomakarona-are better than our own mothers used to make! We have designed the ambience of Athena Grill to give you the feel of a cozy neighborhood restaurant in Athens, also reminiscent of the colorful restaurant in the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." With the blue and white national colors of Greece and authentic artwork lining the walls, and Greek music playing in the background, the interior of the restaurant matches the authenticity of our cuisine. Outside, we have plenty of seating surrounded by lush landscaping, reminiscent of what outdoor dining would typically look like at a Greek neighborhood restaurant. We will always do our very best to provide you with the same dining experience we would provide our own families and appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Thank you very much! Sas efharistoume poli!
