Success! Thanks for posting your review of Evvia Estiatorio. You’ve done the world some good today.

Modern Greek

Evvia is always a great choice for a high quality meal on University. Try the lamb or octopus as well as anything grilled.

Great sevice and good food

I don't eat out at restaurants much but I was craving some Greek food. I lived in Greece for some months a couple of years ago (and traveled all over the country) so I know what real Greek food is supposed to taste like. My husband and I had dinner at Evvia and though the food is well prepared, I was not impressed with the quality of some of fresh vegetables. Most of the dishes we ate were good but the Greek salad le... view more

A++ on Food, D- on Reservation Management

We had 8:30 pm reservations for a party of 4 this past Saturday night. With the menu fresh in our heads and the GPS set , we got ourselves to Evvia's on time and plenty hungry. \r \r The place was crowded, and we were parked at the small bar to wait for our table. For what I thought would be a few minutes. But then 10 minutes go by, and 20, 30 and 45 more minutes before the maitre 'd unapologetically announced... view more

Not as good as sister restaurant Kokkari in downtown SF

After having an excellent dining experience at Evvia's sister restaurant Kokkari in downtown SF, I was quite disappointed with my experience at this restaurant. I could hardly believe the two restaurants were related. Portions were small and prices high. Several items were not fresh, especially fish, which had also not been boned properly. Desserts were great! Staff was professional but cold and also a little slow. W... view more

This is my favorite restaurant!

After being here 4 times with friends, and ordering 22 items on their appetizers, main entrees, and dessert menus, they are 22 for 22 at simply AMAZING food. The fried calamari is to die for. Somehow they magically were able to fry the calamari, yet keep it so soft it melts in your mouth. The Lamb Shank just ""falls"" off the bone. And finally, the Ravioli is simply one of the best comination of food ever! Try i... view more

I just don't get it.

Look, these are nice guys but I don't get it. They all have the requisite european accent but how is the food. I have been to Greece and this is not the food that I had. This is some kind of Cal Greek hybrid at best. And, for such a nice restaurant what's up with their wine list. Hardly any decent selection, like the wine buyer has been hanging out at Bev Mo. Go figure?

Evvia is amazing!

Everything we had was wonderful. Spanakotiropita was unbelievably creamy and sweet. Horiatiki is the best ""traditional greek salad"" I have ever eaten. The feta is plentiful, the veggies are fresh and crisp. If I could only recommend one entre it would be Arnisia Paidakia. The lamb chops were so lushess and cooked to a rare perfection. Kokinisto me Manestra, Souvlaki, and Kritharaki were also unbelievable. ... view more

This is not a place for the uncultured- read weaker reviews with a grain of salt. They will say it's over priced. I completely disagree. The dolmathes (grape-leaf rolls with spiced meat and rice inside) were wonderful, not bitter like you'll find at other places that serve Greek cuisine- Evvia must use fresh leaves (you'd think it wouldn't be that hard in CA!). The lamb chops were one step away from filet mignon, the... view more

Greek Specialties at Inflated Prices

With a menu complete with upscale versions of Greek specialties and a dining room packed with rough hewn tables, Evvia offers patrons a glimpse of a local taverna in the Greek isles. Appetizers include Feta and Olives, Greek Salad, and a combination plate of Dolmathes, Taramoslata, and Tzatziki, while entrees include grilled dishes such as Lamb Chops, Striped Bass, and Rabbit. The cozy, noisy atmosphere is punctua... view more

Older crowd, nice decor, great food. The lamb dish was excellent and they've got a great selection of wine.
