Axia has excellent food with a very friendly staff. Their Octopus appetizer is extraordinary and their big plate chicken is outstanding. This restaurant also carries a good selection of fish (made to your taste). Sit down stairs for the bar scene, or upstairs for a more subdued atmosphere.

A hidden "Gem" in the heart of the suburbs . I was pleasantly surprised and so happy I selected this restaurant . This eatery is beautifully decorated , and we enjoyed a quite leisurely dinner one sunday evening upstairs . Our waiter was great , attentive and helpful with helping us decide on menu choices . Will surely dine there again as we our true "Bergen Country Foodies "

I have been to Axia several times in the past for dinner and was never disappointed. This time was no exception. I went for lunch to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful time. The food as always was wonderful and the service was efficient and warm. Overall a great experience and I will for sure be back again and again!

This is a great restaurant if you want to try or like Greek food. The décor is very nice and modern and the wine list is very extensive. The service was excellent and the waitress was so friendly, knowledgeable and genuine in her desire for us to have a great experience. I recommend.

We truly liked everything we ate. We were a group of seven. The prices are a bit ridiculous, $40 for two small/medium veal chops, but at least the food was truly enjoyable.

This was not our first time dining at Axia, and, as always, everything was great. This is our favorite restaurant in New Jersey. The consistency of the food, service and dining experience is the hallmark of a well-run restaurant, and Axia passes this test with flying colors. We especially love their phenomenal wine list and the expert advice that Tim provides when making a wine selection. WE both had fish dishes, and they were delicious. The quail appetizer was also particularly notable for its delicious sauce.

Notable was the ouzo-cured salmon, can't stop thinking about that dish. A cut above all the competition in the area, forget Oceano's, Varka, etc. This is the place for modern Greek cuisine.

Consistent delicious fresh fish entries and good service. Cocktails are reasonable; wine list by the glass is limited to Greek wines but list by the bottle is good. Never disappointed.

One of the best Greek restaurants in the tri-state area. Great food and exquisite wine list.

Axia is great.
We get together with another couple for dinner about 4 times a year and always look for "special" places. We enjoy introducing each other to restaurants. I wouldn't call us foodies but we like good food and good service. Both are in abundance at Axia and our friends were delighted. I've also been there for 2 parties, including my own retirement lunch, and have never been disappointed. We were surprised at how crowded it was on a Tuesday night - always a good sign. The only thing that would have made it better would have been a lower noise level. You may think of it as "energetic;" we think of it as unpleasant, especially when people don't have perfect hearing. The guitar music (yes, we could hear it) was a perfect touch.

Expensive but worth it
Every time I go to Axia I enjoy every bite. The service was great. We were having trouble deciding on a white wine and the waitress allowed us to taste two before we made a decision. Really had a great date night with the wife.

Yummy - great place to meet friends
Went with family for my birthday, the food was soooo good! The atmosphere is nice, and loved the decor. Axia is modern and welcoming. We had a nice table near the large front windows it was nice to look out on to the street while dining, it gave an "el fresco" feeling. Only complaint was my mother ordered the grilled pork tender lion and it was sort of dry. The pork was cut very very thin,causing it to dry out quickly on the grill. We were not expecting it to be cut that thin since it was grilled pork tenderloin. Other than that the service got a little slow at the end, we had to have one of the bus boys find our waitress for the check since she disappeared. If these events did not occur Axia would star a 5 in my book.
I hope to return!

A trip to Greece

A trip to Greece
I was in Athens this past April and loved everything about dining in that city. I've been to other Greek restaurants in the US but none captured the wonderfully warm, friendly ambience of dining in Greece so well as Axia Taverna. The food was authentic and delicious; I especially recommend the Tuna Tartar. The service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely return.

We heard great things and were eager to try. It didn't disappoint. We had freshly grilled sardines and octopus as apps. They were very fresh and very delish. Mains were salmon crusted with feta and olives and lamb chops. The only minor complaint was the lamb chops came without a side so if we hasn't ordered the broccoli rabe it would have just been 2 chops for the hubs.
Overall it was delicious, romantic and fun. Just what we were looking for.

We thoroughly enjoyed a summer dinner at Axia. The watermelon salad was great as was the stuffed calamari. Both of our fish dishes were cooked to perfection. A delicious bottle of Greek wine and a nice selection of desserts was enjoyed as well. Service is professional and unobtrusive.

It keeps getting better...
It keeps getting better every time we go back. From the different dips to the main entrees you will not be disappointed. great wine list as well.

Axia's staff knows the meaning of hospitality. They are friendly, welcoming and efficient. Service is impeccable and unobtrusive. and you are never rushed. Food is outstanding and consistently good from visit to visit. Lunch portions are appropriate. You leave satisfied but not overstuffed. Wonderful setting for a nice dinner, too. Nice for a couple or a group. Have seen children here, occasionally, but, very well-behaved children with very attentive parents. It's not for the Chuck.E.Cheese set.

Good Healthy Dining
Excellent food and variety, especially appetizers and fresh fish. Wait staff helpful with assisting choices though less attentive after food delivery. Nice Greek wine list. Good atmosphere though very noisy on a weeknight for a business meeting.

Great Dining Experience
Excellent Food, Excellent Service, in a beautiful contemporary setting. The entire staff, obviously works together to make sure the experience at Axia Tervana is perfect from start to finish for all who are fortunate enough to find this unique gem. This was not my first visit, and it will certainly not be my last. This restaurant is on the top of my list for places to go to make a night out even that much more special. Job well done, and THANKS!

There was a large party seated
There was a large party seated near us and we asked to be moved away from them. The manager was very accomodating and seated us in another area which was quiet. The service was impeccable and the food well prepared. Axia is one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

The food here is always fresh and superbly prepared - especially the fish dishes. Wonderful and inventive upscale Greek

We are never disappointed in our meal here. We are always greeted warmly and seated promptly. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. The appetizers are great and my new favorite is the kale and butternut squash pie! We all love the roast chicken, lamb chops, and the fish dishes are terrific. We are usually too full for dessert! The live Greek music (softly played) is very enjoyable. We visit again and again because it is always a satisfying evening.

Perfect Date Night
We had the grilled octopus, which was nothing spectacular. Not bad, just grilled octopus. She had the Colorado Lamb Loin Chops with broccoli rabe. Wow. Best lamb that either of us have ever had. I had he pan fried monkfish with lobster risotto, again a winner. Her lamb was medium, and so soft. The knife was needed to cut through the outer layer, but after that it was butter soft. My monkfish was just right, with the right amount of seasoning. The lobster risotto alone is worth coming back for. Really. For dessert she had the fig ice cream in shredded phyllo, and I had the poached pear in wine with lemon sorbet. Perfect ending.
