The readiness to share unrestrained hospitality when entertaining in one’s home; showing warmth towards strangers. Philoxenia means you will always leave here feeling honored and welcomed with the utmost hospitality.


The gastronomy of Greece is alive and well at Athena and we are pleased to play a role in extending the influence of Hellenic cuisine to the Bay Area. We use the freshest ingredients and locally grown produce, whenever possible, to prepare all our dishes to the high standards our customers have come to expect. The dinner table’s most important functions are to join families, connect friends, and celebrate life’s most important occasions. Athena is a family owned and run place where we hold the family institution in the highest regard, and we hold sacred the opportunity to welcome customers into our family.
