zzz Other zzz translation:Θέλεις να φάμε (βραδυνό);
Explanation:
= Thelis na fame (vradyno)?
I assume you want this phrase translated into Greek.. The translation would be the above:
Θέλεις = Do you want
να φάμε = to eat
βραδυνό = dinner
We usually don't add "dinner" if it is already evening/night - it is understood that it is about dinner and not breakfast, lunch, etc!

The word for word translation "Θα σε ενδιέφερε να φάμε (βραδυνό);" = Tha se endiefere na fame (vradyno)" which has the "interested" element in it, sounds very formal - even awkward - , so I wouldn't use it.

Alternative to my first answer. It means "How about dinner?" . It includes the word "dinner" (βραδυνό)and is very common.
