The Greek Taverna is really good choice for simple, fresh nicely prepared Greek food. The basic Greek dishes with a few specials. Still, a good spot to go to. Worthwhile.

10 of us went to the Greek Taverna last Friday night to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday. The restaurant takes reservations (a huge help for our big crowd). The restaurant is tastefully decorated. The tables have tablecloths and linen napkins but the restaurant has a comfortable feel. Not at all pretentious. We ordered a large variety of appetizers for the... More

Our server was very nice but that was the extent of it. Dips were worse than the ones you can buy from the supermarket, fish was cold by the time they took the bones out and spanikopita tasted like it came straight from a box. I will never return.

First time here... And last. Not a horrific experience for sure but there's SO many other places to eat. Service was slow- we had to keep interupting our conversations at the table to try to (unsuccessfully) get waiters attention for water. At desert, 1 of us got their desert then had to ask twice for the coffees It was SO... More

The place has really changed for the worse. We sat down to a dirty table and should have known it will get worse. The grilled chicken was ok, rice was undercooked. Sent the rice back and got the same. The second entree was portobello with cheese. Yes you guessed it, also undercooked. The cheese was not melted. The short waiter... More

We enjoy this authentic Greek restaurant. Their fish is especially fresh, authentic and delicious. They have great Greek salad and other sides including French fries. Nice place for date night or gathering if friends. They also have a nice private room for parties- 30 guests Max.

Had dinner here on Saturday evening 7pm. Made reservation but restaurant was relatively empty so reservation was not necessary. (There was some outdoor seating so that may have kept the indoor crowd down, but the outside seating is right on the road and we did not want to listen to cars driving by.) Service was very good, food was very... More
