Would certainly go back again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSome serious cooking going on here!What an amazing experience here. This restaurant has to be one of the best overall dinners we've had lately. Very diverse and fun atmosphere with attentive and pleasant servers. We tried the Branzino fish entree and the lamb shank. LAMB SHANK!!!!!!! Do yourself a favor and order this dish. Wow!! It comes with lamb jux with orzo and carrots. Not pricey at all and such a friendly atmosphere...we were checked on by management about 4 times to make sure we were enjoying out meal.

A Friday nite must with the family.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBecause the tables were soBecause the tables were so close together the waiter kept touching the person in the chair on the outside on the shoulder when he leaned in to talk, or to put something on the table. When the dishes were removed from the appetizer and the shared dish both times my fork was picked up, and we had to ask for a new one. I had to wait several minutes after I received the main course for a fork.
The food was fantastic.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding octopus!My friend and I had dinner there with the intention of ordering from the Restaurant Week menu. Once we saw the regular menu, we couldn't resist other items they had to offer. We highly recommend the octopus and the swordfish. The 3 dips were good too.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was terrific :Everything was terrific : food, service including helpful menu recommendations. Wait staff very attentive and happy to be there to make your meal enjoyable. We were very pleased. It was our 41 st anniversary and I happened to mention it. My husband and I were sent complimentary champage flutes. Portions were very fair, not tiny "price fixed" sample size portions. We like to eat Mediterranean food and were not disappointed one bit.
We will return.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good food and goodAlways good food and good service. they don't acknowledge birthdays however:(4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe "dips" appetizer is soThe "dips" appetizer is so good, but very filling so pace yourself. The octopus was very tender. Lamb shank with orzo was cooked perfectly. The paella with orzo was also delicious. The hamburger was pink, just like we asked for. Victoria, our server, was wonderful. We're just trying to figure out our next reason for going back.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food. Usual Sat.Very good food. Usual Sat. night NOISE. We sat in a very dark corner andcould barely read the menu.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy go anywhere else?MKP Taverna provides excellent food, impeccable service and perfect hospitality (a quality that is missing from most restaurant experiences) on a regular basis. We are frequent customers and we enjoy a variety of their dishes -- especially the grilled fishes -- which are always tasty, perfectly cooked and complemented by great side dishes and veggies. Why go anywhere else?4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service is excellentThe food and service is excellent and we can't wait to go back. The mussels appetizer was very tasty and perfectly prepared. I had the lamb chop special and it was so delicious as was the caponata served on the side. My husband had the lamb shank with orzo that was also very good. I would have tried the dips with pita bread but thought that would be too much food. I'm surprised they served Tuscan style bread (which was excellent) with olive oil. It just doesn't seem to go with the rest of the menu. I would much prefer the pita instead. But I guess they have to make money some how. There is an extensive wine list but we had a glass of white sangria that was pretty good.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNo Pepsi and chips hereWe went for our anniversary and it was a very special night thanks to the staff. Out waitress wished us happy anniversary when we sat down and was very attentive and sweet. The service was excellent. The food was wen better. My wife was drooling while eating the dried fruit salad. I had the hangar steak and sausage for my entree and it was delicious. Cooked exactly how I wanted. My wife's rainbow trout was moist and delicious as well. Dessert was fantastic as well. Parfait for me and grilled pineapple drizzled with honey and feta cheese for her. The mixed drinks were great too. Overall, M.P. Taverna lives up to the competition from the other restaurants in the family. We love Kefi and Mythos, now we love M.P. Taverna too!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI had heard great things forI had heard great things for this restaurant. I guess everyone was right . Great food.

This is reliable, friendly, and delicious restaurant!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMModern Greek true to its roots withExcellent experience, clean modern decor. Nice touch food served in cast iron modulars.
Mixed grill was delicious, meat was prepared simply with all very moist and nice plating.
Smashed fries were satisfying. Tomato salad was very well dressed and a good size portion, crumbled feta was creamy, not dry. We were impressed with their controlled use of salt. The pikilia was enjoyable, particularly the chick pea dip,however the tsatziki was on the bland side even though the yogurt had a lovely thick consistently and very fresh. I would prefer it more greek in nature with the addition of more raw garlic. Superb beer menu, the Blue Moon on tap was crisp and cold with an orange slice. Deconsructed bakalava was crunchily creative.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was excellent andEverything was excellent and the waiter and busboys were especially attentive!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFish cooked perfectly!I have eaten fish here several times. Each time, the fish is well prepared and delicious. The salads are yummy. The restaurant is very accommodating, and were willing to substitute green beans for the spinach or broccoli rabe. I have never had dessert here, but they look enticing.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always good andThe food is always good and beautifully prepared.
