Diner Reviews
  • "We had a large group (18) at the last minute and they really took care of us. The food was delicious and authentic, the servers were especially caring and as a result we had a very memorable gathering. Would highly recommend."

  • "This was our first time in several years and we brought out of town guests for a special occasion. Service was inconsistent, even to get water refills. 1 out of 5 dinners was served as the first 4 guests finished their meals. Not good timing. Perhaps just an off night but disappointing all the same when these are things you are hoping not to think about when you go out so you can concentrate on the enjoyment of your guests. The waiter compensated with dessert (which was very good) but we still paid the full bill. "

  • "A long time ago, I used to only go to Kalamata restaurant for Kleftiko. They still do an awesome Kleftiko. However, Maria's Taverna also does an awesome Kleftiko. In addition they have other menu items that Kalamata does not offer, such as the Tarama dip. We absolutely love Tarama and were so happy to discover that they not only do awesome Kleftiko, but they also do awesome Tarama. Very awesome food! Look forward to going there again sometime. "

  • "Maria's has always been a favorite of mine. We went there as a group of five for a birthday dinner and had a great time. My stepdaughter's boyfriend was a little loud when talking, but the waitress took it all in stride and did a great job looking after our needs. Wine was very nice and the lamb! What can I say? It was exquisite - not overdone and not tough. Just melt-in-your-mouth goodness."

  • "Right in the middle of Kits, this restaurant might not get a second look if you're just passing by but don't let the decor deter you from the food. We came for Dine Out and the three course meal was simple but delicious. The lamb entree was the size of an adult's head."

  • "Our Dine out Vancouver dinner was awesome! We were 11 in our group and majority ordered the $18 menu with the Roast Lamb and it was sooooo good! very tender, moist and it melts in your mouth. I will definitely go back for sure!"

  • "A full restaurant when we sat down so a reservation is a sensible consideration. The service was good and the meal memorable for the company and cuisine. We never felt rushed and our friends were delighted to add Maria's to list of restaurant to revisit."

  • "Our reservation for 4 was for 7:30 on a Saturday night during Dine Out Vancouver. The restaurant was jammed and we waited about 30 min. for a table. The staff were flying to keep everyone happy - they couldn't have handled it better. Once we had a table our service was good, the food was delicious, and we enjoyed our meal. We've been to Maria's other times and it's always been a total pleasure."

  • "We went to Maria's Taverna during the Dine Out period at he end of January. The special menu was great and the food wonderful. Homey Greek food, generous portions with warm romantic ambiance at reasonable prices. Hard not to like a place like this."

  • "The food is good,but the service needs improvement. It was not bad service they just seem to always be under staff so it was hard to get any waiter/waitress' attention when needed."

  • "My partner and I tried out this restaurant for Dine Out Vancouver. Not only was the menu and price a bargain, the food was delicious - brought us back to our two weeks in Greece over the summer. It was a busy night, which made it difficult for the staff to seat us on time for our reservation, but that aside, we really enjoyed our meal. The staff were very friendly and made our night out all the more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family looking for a well-priced, traditional meal."

  • "The food was great, but we made a reservation and despite arriving right on time our table wasn't ready and we had to wait about 20 minutes. A lot of other people began arriving with the same problem and soon we were all squished up right at the entrance."

  • "When I arrived at the restaurant they did not know that I had a reservation and wanted to make me wait 20minutes along with the other walkins. I was not happy."

  • "Three adults, two boys ages eight and ten. We arrived at 5 pm and were warmly welcomed. I chose Maria's because the boys love Greek food and so do their parents. The staff were most obliging, even offered to let the dad take photos of the boys wearing an ancient Greek battle hat that was sitting on their bar. The fooed was delicious, and plentiful. We all took home portions fpr the next day. because it was under Dine Out Vancouver. The price was right. We all had a very good and memorable evening!"

  • "Go hear if you want to feel and eat like you're in Greece, the Kleftiko (lamb shoulder), is amazing, melts in your mouth! All the appies, and meatballs are fantastic too, authentic delicious Greek food."

  • "Had the calamari appetizer and lamb shoulder. Portions were generous, service was good and fairly prompt. Has a warm ambiance, I will definitely be back."

  • "Maria's has been our favourite Greek restaurant for over 20 years! We celebrated there birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and had many wonderful family dinners - including one this week. The food has consistently been excellent, service has been attentive and we really enjoy the quiet, casual ambiance of the place. Nothing fancy - but great food, great memories!"

  • "The food was good and great value for your money. I found that once we got the bread and the appetizer, it took a very long time before the actual meal arrived."

  • "GREAT food, POOR service. Went for dine out. The value was amazing - for $18 there was soo much food! And the food was awesome! However, our server was not good - she rang in the main course way after we got our appetizer so it took forever to get our main course. We ended up filling up on hummous because we were starving and then did not have enough room for main course. Then our server got chatty with a table beside us and again we sat there forever waiting for our food to be packed up. Once again too full for dessert so we got it to go. The table beside us came in half an hour later than us and were happily eating dessert and tea while we were waiting for our main course to be packed up."

  • "too bad the lamb soulvaski was sold out; however the chicken was really tender and juicy :) the hummus pita was delicious as well."

  • "Waited too long to be seated and served. Then found out they ran out of main course that we were only interested in. We walked out. Not impressed!"
    Dined on 1/27/2013
  • "Very slow service...this is because the restaurant became busy with patrons and the restaurant staff could not keep up. They are clearly short staffed and this was very apparent as people came in. Food is of average to slightly above average quality compared to other restaurants offering Greek cuisine."

  • "Great deal for Dine-out Vancouver. Delicious food but crowded seating."
    Dined on 1/26/2013
  • "Came here during dine out and for the price you get so much food, it's the second time I've been here for dine out and their portions are consistently big, had to pack mine away. Food is always great, but service is okay, it's not a fine dining restaurant, but it appears to be a family business. Worth a try if you like Greek food."

  • "We went here for the first time for Dine Out Vancouver. It was packed at 6 PM because of it. The food was quite nice, particularly the chicken soup and the Ekmek. Juicy and fall off the bone tender roast lamb also good. Huge portions. Service a little spotty probably due to Dine Out crowd. Would recommend this restaurant."
