Very loud for dinner and tables are close together.
Will try again in the future.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timeThis was the first time we were at MP Taverna, and we were very pleasantly surprised. We were warmly greeted at the door, and seated promptly. The restaurant was busy, but not noisy and it was easy to have a conversation with our guests. The waitress came over right away to introduce herself, explain the menu and take drink orders. When she returned to take our order, she was very knowledgable as to what was on the menu, and how each item was prepared. She made several suggestion that were absolute delicious. Service was fast, the food was excellent, and the price was not over the top. We will go back to MP Taverna many times, and will recommend this restaurant too all of our friends. Thank you,5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good -- a littleFood was good -- a little out of the ordinary for Greek. Paella was good though shrimp a little over cooked. Sliders are great.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMpleasantly surprised!!Foodpleasantly surprised!!Food ,ambiance and servive were very good.Price was a little too expensive.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreg McGHad the Dumplings which were essentially gnocci only with ricotta rather than potato flour.
Fabulously light (almost downey) with a slightly spicy tomato bases sauce with lamp sausage.
Had the gyro-beef sliders which were served with a mid-eastern style yogurt sauce or a spicy feta spread.
The "Greek" salad (I think it was called "MP salad", was perfect fresh produce with just the right amount of lemony vinegarette with a decided olive taste...from the generous blend of different olives cut up in the salad.
Really first rate from the bread and olive oil, the the salad, the appetizer and entrees.
Heard that dinner can be super busy. We went for lunch @ 1PM on a Saturday and it was wonderful.
HIGHLY recommended.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAthens on the HudsonFirst time for lunch. Well priced, nice selections, and very good quality4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNearly Perfect...The octopuss appetizer was the best I've ever had. Tender beyond description and flavorful. The three dip appetizer was a highlight and the greek sausage was a stand out, as well. The branzino entree was delicious. The greek paella was generous with shellfish, but the sauce for the orzo was not as enjoyable as I would have expected considering how outstanding everything else we had was. The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We enjoyed ourselves and will definitely return!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery consistent food, upscaleVery consistent food, upscale contemporary Greek with a twist...fresh flavors, very tasty.

We shared the wonderful crabcakes (3 of them!!) and savored each flavorful morsel. I had the grilled salmon with a side of spinach and my husband had the mixed grill. The salmon was excellent and the mixed grill superb!! We ended this terrific meal with a truly memorable dessert - an apple baklava. This dessert was inspiring - the phyllo dough perfectly crispy, the apple filling fantastic and the almond ice cream the ultimate complement to the pastry.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit, based onOur first visit, based on friend's recommendation.

We were not disappointed. A truly wonderful treat, assuming you like burgers, of course. We were there at 2pm on a Saturday, so the lunch crowd must have been done because the place was only half full, which was great.
