    Evvia Palo Alto 13

    Evvia is the sister restaurant of Kokkari in San Francisco and has been serving Greek cuisine to the Silicon Valley since 1995. They are located in downtown Palo Alto, just off the main University street shopping district.
    This restaurant has a feel of a Mediterranean country inn, with the stylish oven, cookware, and large communal table.

    Small and large groups were seen dining here as were some families and couples.  The menus vary depending on the season.

    Picks:

    Evvia Palo Alto Tomato Salad

    Tomato Salad ($11) with local heirloom tomatoes with whipped manouri cheese, olive oil & Greek basil was an outstanding salad.  The 3 kinds of tomatoes were fresh and tasted great.  The dressing was on the light side and did not overwhelm the fresh produce.  The cheese was awesome, not too heavy, so it perfectly balanced the tomatoes.

    Evvia Palo Alto Lamb Chops

    Arnisia Paidakia ($29.50) rib-cut, mesquite-grilled lamb chops with olive oil roasted potatoes is their specialty and it shows.  Perfectly cooked to your desired level of doneness.  High quality lamb without gaminess. Very good spiced crust. Excellent roast potatoes that were in too low a quantity.

    Evvia Palo Alto Yogurt Sorbet

    Yiaourti Sorbet ($8.25) yogurt sorbet with fresh fruit granita, local berries & a coconut cookie was delicious.  The yogurt out does anything from those trendy new yogurt shops.  The granita was great, not too sweet and a perfect accent to the yogurt.  This is a nice dessert that is not too heavy.

    OK:

    Evvia Palo Alto Octopus

    Octopus ($11.75) traditional grilled with lemon, oregano & olive oil – was of fair quantity and tasted good.  The texture of the octopus was a little mushy on the surface, not crunchy.  This is probably a style of cooking issue and not fundamental.

    Evvia Palo Alto 8

    Kotopoulo ($20.75) lemon-oregano rotisserie chicken with roasted sweet onions & potatoes was a good dish but not great.  The chicken while it tasted good, was a little dry and not juicy.  Zuni Cafe has nothing to worry about.

    Pans:
    None.

    The service was excellent without having waiters hover over your table.  Clearly they have a large staff.

    Evvia Palo Alto 7

    Prices are not cheap but you do get quality food that is cooked well. Wine prices are on the typical high side.  Glasses of wine cost about $11, selection is above average.
    If you are in this area and seek fine dining, you should definitely consider Evvia. This and sister restaurant Kokkari are probably the best Greek restaurants in the SF Bay Area.
