An early seating gave us a nice window table and attentive service. The informal atmosphere of Athena is inviting, and the menu is basic but broad--salads, stuffed grape leaves, seafood and grilled meat specialties are here in abundance. Prices are reasonable and service is fast....More

The first impression about this restaurant is the parking situation. Right next to the restaurant is a parking lot with two big signs saying "No Athena Grill Parking". The only available parking is on the street. We ended up parking where it took a few...More

Very nice Greek Restaurant. Decent greek food blended with American specifics, like Garlic fries. The latter coming from nearby Gilroy, America’s garlic city. Great service, recommended.

We always enjoy coming here: great service, free bread with some special house-made hummus as a starter, wonderful greek salads, and the best lamb kabab dishes. we have been coming here for the past 10+ years and they have never disappointed us.

Very nice greek restaurant. Hummus and Tsasiki were very good, as well as the chicken and lamb skewers. The side dishes (salad, rice, grilled vegetables) were average. Service was friendly and efficient.

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!
