MP Taverna - Irvington
High level food well servedHigh level food well served for fair prices. Wine was high. We were rewarded for trying new preparations from an interesting menu.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDestination DiningThe food was excellent. The restaurant has an outdoor space, but it's right next to the train station so you can hear the trains very clearly during dinner. We were inside and could still hear them! The food was excellent. Tasted great and beautifully presented.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEasily worth a returnMp Taverna was a surprise dining experience. The space is handsome with its high ceiling and expansive room. The menu has many solid choice of fish or meat, prepared carefully with attention to plating. All our dishes were delicious, namely a grilled branzino and a hangar steak with roasted vegetables. Try the yogurt dip. It's wonderful.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMReasonably priced, very goodReasonably priced, very good food in a pleasant atmosphere. Very popular restaurant where reservations are a must on weekends.Varied menu with a Greek flavor but not limited to Greek dishes. Service was good even though the dining room was pretty crowded.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good, not fabulous as expectedAfter reading and hearing glowing reviews, we very much wanted to try MP Taverna and did so to celebrate a special occasion. The service was excellent, as was some of the food. This is an upscale variation on Greek inspirations. Loved the octopus and lamb sausages. The paella was great. The special fish (spiced cobia) was excellent, but the huge broccoli florets were seriously undercooked. The desserts (both inspired by classics--baklava and galactoboureko) were very good, though the baklava should be served with a fork and knife. The espresso was appropriately concentrated but the cups were not warmed before pouring so it was not hot when served.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTook a friend for her birthdayTook a friend for her birthday and it was superb....was able to talk without it being too loud and the food was delicious....great spot!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in WestchesterThe best restaurant I've been to in Westchester in a long time. Calamari and chick pea salad is unbelievable. Eggplant dip with warm pita, Branzino ... all fantastic. Can't wait to go back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, ok serviceOnly issue was that dining room was very smoky; not cigarette smoky, grilled food smoky. Otherwise a solid bet for dinner.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!MP TAVERNA in IRVINGTON was such a lucky find.
Charming dining room, a small outdoor patio area for dining under the stars near the Hudson.
Delicious, yet affordable, menu items.
Recommend their MP Taverna salad, the chicken, the branzino..........all delicious.
Be sure to begin with the fresh made hummous, eggplant spreads with cucumber and or pita breads.
The service was beyond friendly and attentive without being in our way.
A definite return to LA TAVERNA in our plans this summer.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Greek in WestchesterComfortable top quality Greek accented contemporary scene with well prepared fresh fare.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMReally Good - Food -Drink- DessertsA great evening with friends. Plenty of interesting choices of food and drink Very fresh fish, terrific burgers, smashed fries were a hit with all.

Meatballs melt in your mouth5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it every time!I love this place. The food is really good and the service is always attentive and warm.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMopen a restaurant in my town!I wish this very same restaurant was open in Saratoga springs. .just loved it!!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply excellentNot your typical Greek fare. This is an absolute MUST go. Reasonably priced. We found the food a mix of cuisines. I had the spinach dumplings with spicy sausage and feta. Try the yogurt with seeds and honey for desert. Friends had fish that was cooked with giant white beans. This restaurant was surprisingly great,5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMlook forward to going backLarge portions, good value, didn't rush us and great food... a great night!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for an informal dinnerWe met friends at MP Taverna on a Friday night recently. It is often difficult to find a place in Westchester that is the right balance of informality and excellent food, especially one that takes reservations. The place was crowded, but the staff was on top of things. They had our table ready right on time and the food, while not classic Greek, had a Greek flare and was delicious. A very reasonable wine list with good choices by the glass. This will quickly become a new go-to place for us, give it a try.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMP Taverna; after several visitsWe have visited several times for dinner and for lunch. The food, generous, tasty and imaginative, save for a somewhat overdone branzino, is excellent. Salads and dips are truly fun to eat. Both a lamb and a shrimp risotto were outstanding. Some attention to noise level would make the dining experience even more delightful.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful meal!I have pretty high standards, and wasn't expecting much after a horrible dinner at Half Moon a few days before. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, and the care of the waiter. Excellent meal: crab croquettes, lemon chicken and amaretto ice cream (could have had more crunchies though!) I would go back in a heartbeat! Only negative is VERY UNCOMFORTABLE CHAIRS AND BOOTHS.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food + great serviceTruly great. Reasonably priced for great food. Service was fantastic5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress was amazing.Our waitress was amazing. Angie. She was such a pleasure, and I'm impresssed she's a Mom of two, and was working a full day on Mother's Day! You're lucky you have her.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good!!Meatball app was recommended and lived up to hype. Excellent beer selection. My wife loved the cocktails. Food was very good. Will definitely go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn customersFood is always well prepared. Dishes have distinct flavors and textures.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM*****First time - excellent food; try the eggplant appetizer and stripe bass entree5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were outstanding.Food and service were outstanding. Not a place to eat if you're vegetarian. Very loud for dinner and tables are close together.
Will try again in the future.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your Mama's Greek restaurantOur group of four visited MP Taverna for the 7th or 8th time. We have tasted and shared almost all the items on the menu. to our amazement, there seem to be few if any duds. All of the food is freshly prepared, nicely presented, and very, very good taste-wise.
Our favorites are the grilled octopus, pomegranite salad, sea bass, and even their hamburger is great. This trip the calamari was slightly undercooked, hence I witheld a star.
My only complaint is the busboys are overly aggressive about removing plates. My colleague had his fork poised in the air when one came by and started trying to grab plates. We shooed him away, but another one came by only a few minutes later and tried the same thing.
Highly recommended overall!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 AMThe food and service is alwaysThe food and service is always very good. The only exception I would raise is that the portion size of entres is a bit skimpy. I usually have the skirt steak and sausage which has two tiny pieces of each. All the appetizers however, are plentiful and tasty.5/3/2013 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. Wait staff attentive.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very nice dinnerWe had a very nice dinner - we were 4 people and we sampled quite a bit of the menu. The food was tasty and mostly very well prepared-and the room is very nice. Overall it was fine- but there was something just a little bit impersonal and distant about the entire experience. Perhaps it was just the end of a long week for the staff but the pace was off, and it felt very rote. Will try again though.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've dined at MP TavernaWe've dined at MP Taverna a number of times and have NEVER been disappointed. You must order the scallop appetizer, and the gyro spiced sliders. You've never had anything like the smashed fries. You won't be disappointed.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, hot spot,tight quartersFood was great! Seating was a little tight. Felt like i was on top of my neighbor adn could reach over for the salt and pepper.
Otherwise food was outstanding! Nice menu with great greek flavors.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMbest hummusBest Hummus I ever had... go here just for the hummus, you won't be disappointed.

We will return, even tho it is a bit of a trip.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMP Taverna Very Good Greek FoodWe went as two couples to MP Taverna and enjoyed our dinner. The four of us ordered two each of the tuna special entree and the branzino entree. The MP Salad, macaroni and cheese appetizer, octopus salad were very good. The tuna entree special was a little disappointing- -slightly overcooked and not seared on the outside. We liked the Montepulciano wine. The waiter didn't ask if we'd like more coffee, and we had to wait somewhat long for water refills. Otherwise, we had a very good experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur 2nd visit, and the foodOur 2nd visit, and the food and service was once again outstanding. Friendly vibe, not too formal, reasonably priced, perfect when you're in the mood for something Mediterranean or Greek. A hundred times better and more creative than your usual Greek restaurant.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we ordered andEverything we ordered and ate was excellent. The waitress was able to answer any of the questions we had. We have been here before on a few occasions and we would definitely return.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst time to restaurant andfirst time to restaurant and it was pleasant and the food good. But I actually like the normal fittings of a Greek restaurant and don't see the point in neutering it.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMP never disappoints, we loveMP never disappoints, we love it and are regulars at this point.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
