"disappointed with spanakopita, filling was great , dough tasted like it was done on a George foreman grill
Although the lamb chops were expensive they were excellent, meaty, lean and cooked perfectly."

"This was a decent place not too far off the Caltrain route and near SFO. Those are the two main reasons I choose this restaurant. It was nothing special but a good quiet place to go have a meal and glass of wine with a friend before I dropped her off at SFO."

"Mivan is one of our go-to places. The eggplant dishes, the chicken kebab, lentil soup, and all the Mediterranean appetizers are some of our favorites. Pleasant service, food arrives promptly, nice presentation, never too hard to get a table. One thing to note: we always have to ask for the check. Don't stew and complain later -- just ask for it!"

"A clean casual environment where our party of 3 thoroughly enjoyed every plate. Every meal was well prepared and flavorful, swordfish done just perfectly, tender beef kebab and gyro steak and well seasoned fresh ingredients salad, complimented by our very attentive and wine knowledgeable server. We'll definitely visit again."
