“Open Monday thru Thursday 11:30 - 2 & 5:30 - 10, Friday 11:30 - 2 & 5:30 - 11, Saturday 5 - 1, Sunday 5 - 9 Evvia Estiatorio brings the Greek Isles to Menlo Park, with a warm and charming atmosphere and a killer menu. The menu features Greek and Mediterranean classics, but uses local ingredients and flavors to add to the mix. The menu is somewhat small, but covers a wide array of preferences, and because they keep things simple, they’re able to really focus on the quality. This place is a little on the pricier side, and you’ll want to be sure to make a reservation in advance! ”
