    Introduced two other couples to the restaurant. They loved the restaurant. Appetizers were great -nice selection. Mostly everyone had fish and all were happy. Save some room for delicious dessert selection.

    I had the on the menu filet which was just fine. My husband had a whole fish special of silver snapper, which was truly great. We were impressed with the quality, especially being that it was Sunday and ordinarily fish is not at its best when the markets are closed. Perfect meal.

    So it was not crowded and also fairly quiet. We had the octopus with chickpeas as an appetizer, perhaps one of the best we ever had. Then we tried a Labrak (whole fish) and a bronzino (fillets), both were excellent. The bronzion would have been better if it didn't swim in olive oil. Otherwise, strongly recommend the place. This was our first time there and we surely be back

    This is my second time at MP Taverna in Roslyn. I have also eaten In Astoria. The food never disappoints. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable . I would have liked eating upstairs, outdoors at my recent visit; however I was told it would be a bit chilly. Perhaps heaters could be added to help prolong the outside dining experience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys fine Greek food.

    Although I have eaten in the Westchester venu many times, this was my first time in Roslyn, and also the first time I have lunched at MP, and I was not disappointed. In fact, the lunch was fabulous and everything was beautifully presented as well as most delicious. I am a true convert and will continue to patronize all of your restaurants. You are the best for Greek/ Middle East cuisine that is new, innovative and yummy. I have introduced several friends to MP and they love it as well. Keep up the great work.

    We have eaten here a few times but decided that it was the perfect destination for our 13th anniversary. Coming on a Tuesday night is just wonderful - nice and quiet, attentive service, and excellent food. We started with the fabulous meatballs, followed by roast chicken with lemon sauce for one entree and the mixed grill platter. We shared a dessert that consisted of wafer thin phyllo with apple custard in between accompanied by amaretto crunch gelato. Yummy for sure. And teh prices are so reasonable. Most of the entrees are quite substantial - I've always had leftovers to bring home so I could eat one of their great desserts. The wine list is also commendable both for its quality and reasonable prices. Don't miss this place!

    Food was very good. good portions and flavor. Cramped! in the section that we sat there was not enough room to get between tables to get to your seat without putting your butt on the table next to us. Our waiter was very inexperienced and inattentive. This was not just a problem for my table but all the tables in his section. No manager in sight.

    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.

    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!
