Best authentic Greek Food in ATL
Visited Mykonos Taverna on our way to downtown museums on a Saturday for lunch and found amazing, authentic Greek cuisine and superb service! Wonder if some of the previous food reviews that are less complimentary are due to diners' having experience with much more common "Americanized" Greek recipes and restaurants. If you know true Greek food, this is the place to find it in Atlanta! We will definitely return for more!

ONE OF OUR FAVORITES
This is one of our favorite greek restaurants around. We have been there several times but this is the first time we sat on the patio. We were celebrating Mother's day and had a great time and the food is always top notch as well as the service.

We always have a wonderful time at Mykonos Taverna and this past Sunday was no different! We've been eating there fairly regularly for the last 3 years and always find something new and delicious on their menu. Now that we've started dinning there with our two little ones we have even more fun. The staff is always super accommodating and our adventurous little eaters enjoy the Greek specialties that come to the table. Opa!

Massive amounts of tasty food!
Just get the to-go box at the beginning of your meal and scoop half of everything into it. It's all delicious, but they give you a ton of food!

impromptu date night
My fiancé and I were in the neighborhood, and decided to check out this place. We made last minute reservations via opentable and got to the restaurant really early. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by the manager who was super friendly. We told him about the reservation, so he gave us a private booth (date night). He also brought a rose for the table saying "its not date night till there's a rose." my fiancé and I had the gyro which was melt-in-your-mouth-awesome. The highlight of the night was tiramisu (for me) and baklawa Cheesecake (for my fiancé). Will definitely be going again!

MY husband and I went to Mykonos for a nice, romantic dinner. The ambience and food were wonderful. Yvette manager kept coming by our table to ensure everything was o.k.

Great Greek any and every time!!
We've been coming here for a number of years and the food has been excellent all of the time. We like the location (just of I-85 at Clairmont Road).
The specials are alwyas right on, great seafood, lamb and desserts. The portions are large, we usually have a lunch fromt the leftovers. The desserts are out ot this world, we had a wonderful chocolate cake Saturday night.

Stopped by later in evening
We'd not had dinner and wanted a light bite after attending a lecture. The avgolemono (lemon chicken soup) and some dips with pita bread were perfect!

Left Fat and Happy
It was my turn to pick the restaurant and being new to Atlanta I pretty much went off reviews I found online. Mykonos was great. When I needed help finding the restaurant I was given great directions and greeted at the door as if I was family. Drew made our evening even more memorable by suggesting we change tables to a more quiet section of the restaurant. I thought that was very sensitive and much better than having to ask to be re-seated. Obviously, someone has taught him the art of hospitality. The food was awesome and so were the portions - warning, come hungry! Prices were very reasonable and a full bar complimented our meal nicely. No problems and nothing disappointed either me or my guest.

Best place in Atlanta
Our family loves this restaurant! We have had dinners and multiple family celebrations here and we all love Mykonos. It has great food, fun, and special people. We have 3 generations that come and love it. The wait staff is Awesome, especially Ross and overseer Drew. Owner/chef Johnny is the BEST. If you want excellent fresh homemade Greek/Mediterranean food, family friendly and great services try Mykonos Taverna. We travel to come and it is our family's favorite restaurant. You are in for a treat if you choose to have a special event or a quiet romantic dinner at Mykonos. Try the Greek chicken it’s fabulous as are all the Greek dishes. However, our favorite part is the people who will assure you have a wonderful dining experience. Opa!

Mykono's is my new fave restaurant.
Wow is all I can say. Everything about it is absolutely perfect. The food was fabulous, tasty, great portions, etc. I couldn't stop eating. The service was incredible...the waiters and host went out of there way to be accomodating. It was a special night for celebration and they made it special with their singing, decorative plates, etc. The chocolate cake was to die for. I'll be recommending this place for a very long time. I can't wait to try all the other things on the menu. This place scored the very highest score on all fronts!

We had a nice dinner. Food and service was good. Bar was loud so we ate outdoors, but regretfully a table of young people drinking and very loud. They left before dinner was over, thank goodness. Lamb chops were medium well and I had asked for medium rare; however, they were still tasty, so I decided not to send them back. Bread was great.

This is a wonderful restaurant with great food and service. On a beautiful night you can eat outside on the patio under the stars, however, the atmosphere inside is very nice too. We noticed they also have a bar area with multiple TV's if your just looking for drinks with friends while you watch sports. What we really appreciated the most is the people. This is probably the friendliest restaurant you could ever visit. We were celebrating a birthday and added people at the last minute and they went way out of their way to make it fun and special. The flaming appetizer is such fun and worth the cost. Greek dishes are awesome but so is all their food. They have healthy stuff too and will work with dietary needs.

Was in town for just one night and needed a restaurant close to our hotel. Found Mykonos on Google Maps and it was very easy to book a reservation. They were very accommodating when we arrived late for our reservation due to a flight delay, and the food was excellent.

Feels like home
Great experience. The manager greeted us personally - I have a pretty complicated last name and he said he was practicing the pronunciation all day. Keri, our waitress, was just outstanding. We talked about the holidays, Greek culture. Very friendly. The food was great. The portions are quite big. Really an amazing place. Definitely coming back when we are in Atlanta again.
