A word from MP Taverna - Irvington
Chef Michael Psilakis introduces his award-winning Greek-inspired cuisine to Westchester with the opening of MP Taverna, a modern interpretation of a traditional Greek tavern. MP Taverna’s accessible menu brings Psilakis’ Greek fare into the American culinary lexicon and is another step towards the chef’s goal of putting Greek cuisine on the culinary main stage. “The memories I have of cooking with my family are the inspiration for my restaurants, and I hope my guests create their own memories through their dining experiences at MP Taverna,” says Chef Michael Psilakis. “I want MP Taverna to be a destination for more than just a celebratory meal; a place that conjures the familiarity of your dining room table at home.” Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Feel fortunate to have this reasonably priced excellent Greek-influenced restaurant so near to our home, but recommend a trek from anywhere to get here."

  • "Great food at reasonable prices! The grilled octopus is to die for! We eat here every few weeks & have never had a bad meal. Love the Branzino, the lemon dill chicken & the salads."

  • "Staff was friendly and knowledgable. The food was varied and very good. Our party of four tried a variety of items from appetizers to dessert and each was prepared and served wonderfully. Will definitely return."

  • "I love this restaurant! The chickpea hummus is the BEST I've ever had and is served with warm pita triangles which are to die for. I also love the grilled Branzio. Just delicious. Many great choices for lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Smart bar scene, excellent food and outstanding service. The bar is airy, lively and happening, without being noisy. As a 1st generation greek I can vouch that this one of the most best greek cuisines you can find in the greater NYC. All dishes are imaginative with a modern twist, with the octopus appetizer and the branzino fish being my favorites Impeccable service from beginning to end."

  • "Eclectic menu- not your typical Greek food menu. All three of us had different fish dishes. Grilled branzino was very good, nicely prepared, crisp on the outside, moist inside, very flavorful. Nice options for wine by the glass. They also had a prix fix dinner option that was good according to my fellow diner. I would recommend a table. Booth seats are too shallow even for someone who is not talll. We asked to be moved to a table . They were gracious about moving us as the restaurant was not yet crowded. Service overall was great."

  • "This place keeps getting better and better and can't do anything wrong! The food is fabulous, and so reasonable it is hard to believe. Our server was incredible, and we are becoming addicted to mp taverna! Can't wIt to go back. We keep bringing different friends but I almost hate to do that, because it will make it even harder to get a reservation. Well done!!!"

  • "We haven't had the chance to come back to this restaurant for a while, but it was even better than we had remembered. A bit too warm in the dining area, but otherwise a 10 !"

  • "Nice menu, well prepared food, nice ambiance, attentive service- all add up to an excellent choice for dining in Westchester"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We have been to MP Taverna a number of times and really enjoy their fish dishes. They are full of flavor and not fishy tasting. We also love their meatball and sliders appetizers. In addition, their wine list is extensive. Their service is great and the waiter will recommend his favorite dishes."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "This is a comfortable spot to meet friends - as long as nobody really cares about the food. Space has a corporate/hotel feeling about it. Very suburban."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Here many times always consistently good, with very attentive service."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The place is beautiful, great bar area and nice dining room. Enjoyed the food and drinks and waiter was great. Didn't get the bartenders name but he was a pleasure to talk wine with, he knows his stuff"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Sometimes I actually dream about their octopus salad with check peas! We went last week for Restaurant Week and had the Hanger Steak and the Lobster Risotto with brussels sprouts, which I don't see on any of their menus but was just wonderful. We've only been to MP Taverna in Irvington for lunch or a very early dinner - at those times, the restaurant is calm & quiet - a great place to share a meal with friends and actually be able to hear your table conversation. The staff has always been very courteous and helpful, the decor is white table cloth but still casual & comfortable. The food is wonderful and quite reasonable, for the quality and quantity and location, I believe. I love it there."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The best part of our experience at MP Taverna was our waiter. I just wish I remembered his name. He was so friendly and nice. Some restaurants during Restaurant Week the staff can be very unfriendly but not here. I would go back just because of how welcoming our waiter was. We also enjoyed the food, but what stands out was our waiter. We will be back."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "MP Taverna is a stone's throw from the Irvington train station, and a short walk to the Hudson River. it is beautiful inside, the staff is personable, attentive, knowledgeable - and gracious. It took a little longer than it shouild to get our drinks - not really an issue, but surprising - and I love that you can order any wine on their wine list by the glass/1//2 bottle/full bottle. The food is consistently excellent and the menu is interesting/diverse/complete...A great dinner night out."

  • "I booked this restaurant during Restaurant Week and it was a true gem. The atmosphere was comfortable and classy, the service was impeccable but the real star was the food. Quite often during Restaurant Week i walk away disappointre dform the limited menu choices, but there wasn't anything I wouldn't try on this menu. The rtout was incredible and so was the lobster bisque. i will be back throughout the year nad have told my forends about it. That's why all restaurant should take note and put their best foot forward during this special culinary week."

  • "We celebrated birthdays there and the food was very tasty and well prepared. Lovely server and prompt"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The meatball appetizer is a must have. A large enough portion to share with 3 meatballs and the delightful sauce. If you call on Thursday for a Saturday night reservation you will only be offered a table at 5:00 or 9;00; they are always packed. The service is solid but not personable which is just fine. Entrees are interesting and always please. Desert is passable."

  • "I eat here frequently and it is always delicious. I have tried many different things and they are all good. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Delicious food perfectly cooked, seasoned well. Quite palate pleasing. Our waiter suggested a lovely Greek wine that paired well with dinner including the chocolate dessert. Our waiter was charming, did not rush us and took the time to answer our questions. We asked him to suggest the wine. The manager / maitre 'd was equally charming and available for questions and comments. I was surprised that the restaurant was not filled with diners during Westchester Restaurant Week. It should be!"

Our waiter was Oswaldo and he was helpful and attentive, had so many suggestions about the menu and even shared some information about nutritional value of certain food! We stayed there for 4 hours and were not rushed out! We are planning on going back as soon as possible! Thank you for a great time and amazing food!!"

  • "Something has to be done about the chairs at the tables. They are so uncomfortable . Makes it hard to sit . Food is very good and service is attentive and courteous . Bartenders are excellent and quite accomodating. Whole animal dishes Like the pig and fish are enormous but quite tasty"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Wonderful appetizers - grilled octopus, mussels with sausage and Cypriot lamb sausage all real treats. Paella with orzo rather than rice was a tasty variation with great seafood- huge whole shrimp with head on, mussels and clams -and sausage. Hearty winter meal with decent size portions."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We have eaten at MP Taverna several times, and the food is always very good. Saturday was no exception. Our only disappointment was that the server didn't know what the grilled "fish of the day" was. I asked if it was trout, which was on the specials list in a couple of forms, and he said he didn't think so -- the trout was already stuffed (which I didn't want). I asked him to check if the "fish of the day" was the trout, and said if it wasn't I'd take the branzino. He brought the branzino, then I heard the waiter for the table next to us tell them the grilled fish of the day was trout. :( The branzino was very good, but I would have preferred the trout. Not a big deal, but I do think the waiters should know the "catch of the day.""
