Greek Taverna is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent. The service is wonderful - all of the staff are very friendly. It is on of our go-to places when we dine out.

I just noticed that I haven't reviewed the Greek Taverna. When I had an office in McLean we ate here almost every week. Kristos and Popi transport you to a local tavern in sunny Santorini every time you visit. The food is universally wonderful. I am a particular fan of the fish. You can't go wrong with the trout on...

It has been quite awhile since my last trip to Greece, but this place has the right feel and taste to bring those memories back. We enjoyed trout and cod with a Santorini, a good white Greek wine--the only country that makes the wine list. The waiter's rehearsal of the specialties proved a bit mechanical and lengthy, but he then... More

Our group were returning after a late evening working. All we wanted was a beer along with something light and tasty. And that we got, quickly, easily and without and debate. Ideal.

Really great meal here last evening. We had a platter of sampler appetizers brought out to start and it came with pita bread and also olive cake (bread) that was a delicious addition. For entree's we had some really lovely lamb, fish and scallops to share amongst the 4 of us. The baked lamb dish was better than the kabob,... More

I've eaten there twice. The food is pretty good but not outstanding. The service when we've been there was very slow. There's better places in McLean

Though this appears to be a "white table cloth" grade of restaurant, the meals are just average. I can't figure out if it is because of the lack of fresh ingerdients, or their preparation. There are others I prefer.

Delicious spanakopita, moussaka, grilled salmon and trout - all beautifully prepared and served first with a salad or avgolemono soup. The baklava is homemade from a family recipe and the rice pudding is also excellent. The owners are cordial and the ambiance feels like you're in the Greek isles. Great evening!

This unfussy restaurant reminds me of restaurants in Europe where the food is everything and decor is unimportant. The bread (always a good indication of quality overall) was delicious, soft, and had black olives in it. We went for lunch so ordered just some basic items including lentil soup and Greek salad. The homemade dressing with lots of herbs was... More
