“Dio Deka Deelightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

A wonderful dining experience. Delicious food beautifully seasoned, very flavorful, not overdone with too many flavors. Appetizers: flavorful spanikopita, creative brussel sprouts, tender octopus. Main course: Very fresh fish, Bronzino -tasty, lamb chops -flavorful. Dessert: beignets - delicious but a bit dense . Service: sublime; attentive , unobtrusive, knowledgable , did not interrupt conversation, staff enhanced experience. Pacing: unhurried, let us enjoy our evening . Noise level : Hooray, a restaurant where you can have a conversation and hear each other; well done! Negatives: The steaks although top quality are expensive. Overall pricing is a bit high. Overall experience: a lovely, memorable evening

“Good food, good ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

So many delicious things to eat! The little bread triangles that start the meal were very tasty as were the Brussels sprouts (with honey etc) we shared for an appetizer. We had two main courses, both of which were very good: the pork tenderloin/jowl with gigante beans and the lamb chops. Dessert was tasty if small: the honey mousse with a dollop of ice cream. They have a huge wine list and stock wines in a wide range of prices. Service was friendly though we did have to get a bus person to flag down our server to order dessert. The décor is pleasant with woods/metals. Valet parking is free -- though of course tips are encouraged. All in all a pleasant experience in downtown Los Gatos. Expensive however: ~$265 with tip for two.

“Distinct flavors & pleasant service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Last visit about mid-World Cup (June 2014). Both fish main courses were superbly cooked and spiced. The grilled asparagus is a pleasing side. Each of the seven or so times we've dined have been memorable from the planned large party graduation celebration to the last minute let's-go-there decisions. The staff is pleasant. The servers knowlegeable. Slow down and enjoy the experience.

“Great anniversary dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Went there to celebrate an anniversary. The staff was great, helpful and accommodating. The menu is interesting, and the items we ordered (appetizers, seafood, dessert,) were all nicely prepared, and delicious.

They have quite an extensive wine list (no, a wine BOOK!) and we enjoyed our selections by the glass very much.

A nice touch was the personalized menu and dessert presentation for our anniversary.

I have tried a few different things on their menu over the past few months, and they have great food, well prepared, and with a touch of personalization that elevates simple things like dolmades and baby back ribs.

The location is convenient for walking to downtown Los Gatos after a nice meal. The restaurant is nicely sectioned so you can sit near the bar, by the window, or a fireplace, and there is outdoor dining on the patio.

It's Greek dining, thoughtfully, tastefully, and artfully prepared. There are some pricey items on the menu, but they also have some very nice selections for less.

Once in a while they will have a special brunch that has a special menu just for that occasion, such as Mother's Day. Be sure and make a reservation, and get their early!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Handled party of 12 with ease and aplomb. Food was varied, well prepared and pleased everyone. This restaurant is the favorite of my sister and brother-in-law here in town and has become ours as well.
