Mediterranean
Michelin star recipient San Francisco Bay & Wine country for 2011 & 2012. "At Dio Deka the refined and technically precise Greek and Mediterranean dishes are elevated to stellar levels.”- anonymously by the Michelin inspector "…vividly flavored, brilliantly executed food, that transcends ethnicity but still tastes Greek…”- Gourmet Magazine Award of Ultimate Distinction- Wine Enthusiast, Restaurant Awards “memorable modern Greek cuisine" that “would make them jealous in Athens”, particularly when paired with an “extensive wine list” worthy of Dionysus; the five owners provide “over-the-top” service in the spirit of filoxenia (the art of hospitality) for what’s sure to be a "big fat Greek night" out. - Zagat

The service was impeccable... food amazing... and it was nice to eat in a proper courtyard. Felt very safe in this strange time.

Very nice ambiance on the front patio. The restaurant has added a lot of tables in both the courtyard and the front (but well spaced out) making it a great venue for outdoor dining.

Really nice first time experience. Good social distancing between tables. Excellent food, service and ambiance. Tried the riblets, and don’t confuse them with BBQ ribs. Tender with unique flavor. We had the whole Bass and it was light and flaky. One of the best fish I’ve ever had. Pricey, but an excellent experience.

The wine was spectacular, the service was awesome. The tzatiki was jump really two lumps of yogurt, nothing special at all. The branzino was overcooked and dry. The Islay Lavagulin 16yr was way over-priced compared to other restos.

Always such a great experience even in light of the "new normal" with the Covid-19 rules and regulations. Their service, food quality and ambience is still spot on which made for a great dining experience especially on Father's Day. Thank you, Dio Deka!

We can see how hard it is to create outside the same vibe as inside during corona virus. I wish they’d just allow you to space the tables out. The food always outstanding!!! Thanks guys, until next time....

In my mind, Dio Deka is the best restaurant in the South Bay and top 5 in the entire SF Bay Area. The food is outstanding, the wine list is phenomenal and most importantly, the staff is extraordinary.

We celebrated Fathers Day. The food was awesome, not we wanted because a lot of items were already gone when we got there 7:15. Service was slow because this is the new normal running around, hard to hear with masks. But they did a great job! But it was a bit pricey for the evening. All the less expensive items even $27 were out!

We enjoyed a wonderful "socially distanced" dinner outside this weekend. The food was terrific as usual. Great octopus and spreads for appetizers and wonderful mains. The servers were very carefully following all safety protocols. Our table was well placed and far from any other tables, although we were only a party of 2. It was so nice to feel somewhat normal and to go out to dinner again. They are doing a fine job at Dio Deka.

Reasonably good Greek inspired restaurant. However, not worthy of 1 Michelin star. Dishes are good but fairly classic with average presentation. Moussaka was a bit dry. We were served a half bottle of wine (even though I checked with the waiter and questioned the quality of the wine in a 14 year old half bottle) that we returned after tasting because it was off. Got another perfectly good one and we were not charged for the first one. service and ambience was excellent.

We ordered the Scallops and the fried brussel sprouts to share as appetizers. The scallops are a good size, plump, tender and fresh. And the fried brussel sprouts are simply not to be missed. Main courses were the Whole Brazino and the Fish of the Day (ling cod). Both were done expertly. Can go wrong with a dinner at Dio Deko. Great service topped off the evening.

Great place for dinner. Visit at least once a month
However service this visit not up to the standard normally experience. Waited 35 minutes at the table to get a glass of wine and it came at the same time as the starter dishes!

Been to Dio Deka several times and always enjoyed the meal...which you have to for the prices charges. This last meal, four of us ate and everything was good, except for the lamp chops. They were ordered medium rare -- the came seared on the outside and completely raw inside...not the center, the entire chop a few millimeters under the seared, and over seasoned outside.

I cut into one and realized the error and look for my server, or anyone, to let them know they were not properly prepared. After several minutes without anyone coming back to the table or making eye contact with a customer who clearly has an issue, I got up and brought the plate to the open kitchen and told one of the chefs that they were under cooked. A few minutes later the plate was brought back with the same chops cooked more. As a result, the outside was now leathery and the inside tasteless.

All of the other dishes -- appetizers and entrees were good (not great). Unfortunately, the poor preparation of the $50+ lamb chops soured an otherwise nice meal.

I assume as some sort of accommodation, our waitress brought us four of us glass of an very sweet Greek desert wine, which none of us liked/could drink, or wanted. They made a point to let me know that they "comped" us the drinks on our bill.

The restaurant was OK. I was disappointed with my octopus. Honestly the little intermezzo of mushroom soup was the best thing we had. Nothing made me feel like it was really worth the price.
