    We enjoyed yogurt dip appetizer with cucumbers and warm pita wedges. Entree choices were good. We had salmon, lamb chops and entree salad with prawns. Excellent service. A bit noisy and getting louder as evening wore on. Will return.

    This is such a wonderful modern Greek restaurant that I think I've been to ,well....ALOT! I really have to order SOMETHING other that the Taverna steak/sausage salad, but it is SOOOOO great that it's hard not too! Those daily combos are the most amazing buy you will EVER find;ambiance is teriffic, and eating on the roof -do so when possible! The Maitre D is as good a reason to go as the food

    Coming from a Greek background it was a pleasantly surprising twist on some traditional dishes. The flavors really popped in every item ordered. Only critique is that they go a little to heavy with the use of garlic and onions, but doesn't ruin the meal. Good meal all around and Mae sure to save some room for some delicious Greek desserts!

    I really wanted to like this restaurant. Although the food itself was good (not great) the service was very disappointing. We got only one round of drinks because our waitress never came back around to ask us if we needed another drink, OR to fill our glasses with water. Once our food was served, she only once came back to ask if we wanted to see the dessert menu. We ordered dessert which was very good! Baklava with ice cream. Only once we were done with our dessert she asked if we wanted coffee. I wouldn't say the restaurant or the food is horrible... just not a great experience.

    The potential is there but it is never special just an OK place. The most bizarre lunch special every. Menu states we serve your dessert with your lunch which is weird especially as it is a yogart based dessert. Is it that much work to wait? Especially if others in the party aren't doing the special.

    A one hour wait for an ordered well done lamb burger was enough for me to change my normal weekly visit to a no-go. By the way, when it was finally served it was rare. I will try again since previous visits were good.

    My beautiful wife and I had brunch at MP Taverna in Roslyn on Sunday morning. Arrived @12 PM and it was virtually empty. My wife had a breakfasts wrap and I had the "Country Cast Iron Breakfast", which was out of this world (particularly that lamb sausage!). It came with a delicious salad of cucumbers, feta, tomato, and green beans. Price was reasonable and the service was superb. We'll be back!

    we have eaten at this restaurant often, and always find all aspects of the dining experience quite outstanding. on this weekday evening, the usual noise level was much more tolerable, which is usually our only complaint! the service, the food, the ambience, all up to par. Even parking on the street was easy. Guess Wednesday's are a good night at PM Taverna!

    It was my first time there and it came recommended, but I would not recommend it. I ordered the lamb chops which were on Specials Menu. They were cooked as ordered except they were so salty and that was a big turn off. The smashed fries that came with them were somewhat cold. Overall disappointed, especially for the price.

    We have been here several times, and it is always good...except this time. My son ordered the special...shrimp with 3 cheeses. It had exactly 2 shrimp in the dish...and they came with the heads on (not an attractive presentation.) My husband and I ordered whole fish. It was cold, as were my veggies. We asked for it to be warmed, and it came back just as cold as when it went back. When we complained to the waiter, he did nothing about it.

    dined here on Sat. Evening. Sat outside. Scene was comfortable and relaxing. After 45 minutes, realized that had not gotten our appetizers. Service stayed down hill from there. Entrees arrived without special vegetable of the day, which we all ordered, instead fingerling potatoes were substituted. When we explained to waiter that we did not order potatoes his response was that kitchen "ran out of "brussel sprouts". We suggested that he should had informed us of this before the food came out, to which he responded that he had just found out. We called on the manager who not only apologized for the problem, but quickly arranged for substitute green vegetables, for the four of us and a fresh piece of Salmon for one. May try again

    The most amazing Greek restaurant I have ever dined at. The food was off the charts with a very creative chef and menu. Not traditional Greek but Greek with a creative flair. The mussels, grilled octopus, and fish dishes were to die for! I do not live near the restaurant. It is roughly 45 minutes from where I live but if I had to walk there next time, honestly I would. It was that terrific! I am returning in two weeks to take some friends out for dinner. I want to share this "jewel" with them! Thank you for such a fabulous meal with great service!

    We are always looking for a new place to dine alone and that is also appropriate to take family and/or friends. MP Taverna is it! We have gone to Astoria for authentic Greek food and have been disappointed - MP Taverna was EXCEPTIONAL - the food was fabulous, pleasant atmosphere and great service! We will be back - again and again!

    Always love coming here. It's one of the first restaurants I think of when going out with others who haven't been here. I've always had a delicious meal...you can't go wrong with anything ordered. I was thrilled to see that there are now more traditional Greek desserts on the menu. Went on a gorgeous Saturday night and loved eating outside on the rooftop!

    I have dined here in the past and was impressed by the food (specifically Branzino) and was thrilled to see they still offered my favorite fish and offered a variety of options. I like that the entree choices allow you to select a small salad or side dish rather than force you into the choice the chef dictates. The wine special was tasty and a great bargain. Service was exemplary. Try to visit on a week nite when the noise level is much lower.

    My husband and I eat at MP Taverna semi regularly. The food is always delicious, and never disappoints. Some of our favorites are the grandmas meatballs, the bulgar salad, the lemon chicken, and the simply grilled salmon. Each dish is loved by everyone who tries it. No matter what you order, you can't go wrong. The service has always been good too. As a side note, in the summer they have outside dining, if you are willing to wait the extra time for a table. Overall, you will leave happy.
