Been here many times now, lunch
and dinner. Every time the food has been exceptional. Service is very good and nobody rushes you to leave. I've recommended it to many friends, who all have loved it. This time I had a lamb shank, never had before, it was wonderful."

We had a wonderful time for a
Saturday lunch for 17 people. The tables were set wonderfully so that guests could speak with one another and the menu was spectacular, including for 3 children. Everyone present enjoyed the choices and the food was prepared hot and the various dishes were outstanding. The service was extremely good and particular attention was given to every guest by 3 servers. The luncheon was a special gift from a special friend after a funeral memorial service for an old friend."

Came here for lunch yesterday
during the nice sunny day with my wife. We started off with this delicious drink called Sex in Santorini. Wow, we two cocktails each before we opened a tasty Greek wine from their huge selection of wine. We met Nick the owner, and he recommend we try the octopus which was out of this world. We also ate the spreads..mmmmmmmmm.....I had a whole fish the Black Sea Bass and my wife at the copper river sockeye salmon, my son had the chicken souvlaki which i had i bite too. The dishes were very tasty and I highly recommend them when you go. We had chocolate heaven, and ekmeak for dessert with some Greek coffee. P.S..I love the pillows in the booths."

This was our 6th visit to this
restaurant, as it is located within walking distance to our home. The atmosphere is excellent, great design ambience. The staff are extremely well trained and professional. Food hasn't always been consistent. I had the Red Snapper special and found it was a little dry, while my wife had another fish special, that was drowning in oil. Overall, I still have to give good grades to this local restaurant, as I know they have done better and let's just chalk this up to a bad day. We will see the next visit."

The Livraki is always outstanding
as are all of their fish dishes. We have been coming here since they opened (was trhere 2 weeks ago). Our only complaint is that we used to be served warm Pita, Olives & Greek olive oil but it looks like Nick is cutting down. We realize that food costs are going up but our guests on both occassions made a note that they were not happy about this."
Dined on 7/23/2014
We came here for seafood and we
were not disappointed. The menu had a large selection of fish-based dishes, including whole fish (changes with what is available). Started with a split of the golden beet salad (very nice) and then soft shell crabs and Chilean sea bass, both very nicely done. Prices are a bit on the high side for New Jersey, so it won't be a regular spot for us."
Dined on 7/22/2014
As always Taverna Mykonos was
outstanding, from being able to change a reseat the last minute to the greeting upon arrival and that the tabl we prefer was ready for us. the service was excellent, the food outstanding, definitely one of our favorite restaurants."

The keftedes are phenomenal and
the Lamb shank out of this world! Have never had any issues with any of the other menu items all delicious."
Dined on 7/12/2014
Have been eating here many times
and have never been disappointed. Staff is very friendly and the tables are always full. Specials change often and are always worth trying. If you don't want to valet park you can always park across the street in the K Mart lot."

if the fish were any fresher it
would only be because i caught it on the way into the restaurant...great as always!"

Very good food. Attentative
waiter.Beet salad was nice. Fish was cooked perfect. Coffee fresh."
Dined on 7/4/2014
Whenever we are in town this
restaurant is a must and we've been coming since it opened. Every meal has been excellent with perfect service. The preparation of their fish is magical. From the start of the valet service to the Greek cookies that they bring to the table at the end of the meal,you will have a fine dining experience."
Dined on 6/28/2014
Definitely NOT at
'pastitsio/moussaka' Greek restaurant ... Everything on the menu was delicious and beautifully presented. The octopus was yummy ... Not at all tough or chewy! The 'Lavraki' was outstanding! Greek desserts were authentically different ... Absolutely try the rice pudding and Ekmek! It was our anniversary and our waiter helped make the evening extra special..."

From the moment you walk into
Mykonos you feel welcomed. Caesar the Maitre'D grrets every guest and Nico the Manager (owner's son) makes you feel like you've come home. The food is fresh and delicious and the service is excellent. From the fried Calamari, the Harvest Gold Beet Salad, the variety of fresh fish served fileted to the soft shell crabs that I enjoyed... Fabulous deserts and of course Greek Coffee .Everything was perfect. Thank you Myconos for a wonderful dining experience..... We'll be back soon!"
Dined on 6/7/2014
The food and service is
outstanding. A little pricey, but the quality is excellent. I look foward to returning for anther great meal. "
Dined on 6/4/2014
The run-down: - Food was pretty
good, at average dinner-time prices (roughly $26/entree) but watch out, it adds up pretty quickly...the fried calamari was very good, though. - Didn't try drinks, so can't vouch for them - Ambiance is definitely better than you'd think it would be from the outside, but decor is the slightest bit tacky. Mood lighting is okay though without being too dark. - Maybe it was because we went on a Tuesday night but there were only a handful of other tables with customers (not personally familiar with the neighborhood) - Servers were very friendly and helpful, manager(?) personally went around to the different tables to make sure everyone was okay. All things considered, I guess I'd recommend the place. "
Dined on 6/3/2014
We have been there several times
and have never been disappointed. All of our party had fish, and all were extremely pleased. Ambiednce is nice and service very attentive and pleasant. Will be back. "

I dined at the Taverna Mykonos on
Saturday with a group of 7 people and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The menu included many standard and not-so-standard Greek dishes, and seafood eaters, meat eaters, and vegetarians were all able to find something special just for them. One of our companions uses an electric wheelchair and the restaurant was among the most accessible we have visited. The restrooms easily accommodated the large wheelchair which is often not the case. Most important, everyone on staff made us feel as if we were guests in their home. It was clear that they were proud of the restaurant and loved working there and this meant a lot to us."
Dined on 5/31/2014
Great restaurant! Food was
prepared with the right amount of seasoning and the presentation was perfect. "
Dined on 5/30/2014
Overall the food was good, could
have deboned a little better, but chef was a little heavy handed with the salt. The grilled Octopus appetizer was excellent. Sorbet was closer to Italian Ices than sorbet and not enough flavor of fruit."
Dined on 5/30/2014
Taverna Mykonos never disappoints.
The food is always wonderful, as is the service as is the general atmosphere. They do everything each and every time to make sure your experience is wonderful. How lovely to find a restaurant where they consistently care about making the diners experience perfect. That is why we return time and time again and will continue to. Rivals the best NYC restaurants we also frequent."
Dined on 5/24/2014
We've been to Taverna Mykonos two
times. Each time the service and food were outstanding. The décor and ambience are also well suited for a dinner for two as well as a larger group."
Dined on 5/17/2014
I booked a reservation for a
diverse group of 4 - wheelchair bound, vegetarian, only eats one kind of food, foodie. All were pleased with the food, but most remarkable was the service. We were shown quickly to a suitable table for our special needs lady, who's birthday it was. Food came quickly, water and bread refilled attentively, manager checked in to see if we had everything we needed. The staff even brought a dessert with candle at the end of the meal and sang Happy Birthday. I'm glad I took a chance on this place and will return."
Dined on 5/15/2014
The best Greek food in the area,
no doubt. The food is always tasty and fresh, great décor, and wonderful service. The Greek white wine is delish!"
Dined on 5/13/2014
Reservation was ready and waiting
for my wife and I. Service was excellent. If you have a large appetite, you might do well to start with the appetizers of which there are quite a variety, ranging from simple olives/cheese, to octopus, to several dips. The entrees are not gigantic, so my impression is that you should think more in food courses and try some of everything. The food arrives promptly and is exquisitely prepared. I had chilean sea bass. The delicacy of the fish was preserved because it was cooked to perfection. My wife had a standard gyro entree but she said it was excellent. Due to an accidental mishap, the restaurant comped us a dessert--a rich mousse-like custard on a bed of shredded baklava(?)and honey. Wonderful."
Dined on 5/11/2014
A great restaurant if you enjoy
Mediterranean food. and will measure up to the upscale Varka in Ramsey, and best of all it is a bit easier on the wallet. Smaller scale than some of it's competitors, it is beautifully decorated and the service was impeccable. The grilled Octopus as appetizer is a must, and I highly recommend the whole fish selection.. I ordered the Black Sea Bass and it was delightful. You will not be disappointed! "
Dined on 5/11/2014
but I'm glad I did at Taverna
Mykonos. We don't eat out much as I am a good cook and I frankly find very few restaurants that provide us with anything better than we can make at home. Mykonos definitely does. The service was friendly without being pushy, and our table was bussed appropriately, with dishes discretely removed as needed. The food was outstanding - of special note is the feta cheese on the cheese plate appetizer. Vladimir, our server, said it was from the family's home in Sparta, and it was so different - and much better than - any other feta I have had. My fish (red snapper) and my husband's lamb shank were perfectly cooked and flavorful. Valet service was a little hectic, but other than that, the evening was great!"
Dined on 5/10/2014
We are lucky to live a few minutes
from this delicious restaurant. I love the octopus appetizer. The filet souvlaki special with risotto was delicious and the dessert called Night in Greece was perfect. We have been with a group and it's fun to try all of the delicious Greek specialties. "

We know when we go to Taverna
Mykonos that we will be treated well, we'll eat well, and we'll be back. What more could you want from a restaurant?"

The food was outstanding and the
service attentive and efficient. The mussels appetizer was a great meal in itself ! They even made rice pudding into a GREAT dessert."

I WOULD RECOMMEND TO ALL MY
FRIENDS AND FAMILY. EXCELLENT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT DRINKS!!"
Dined on 4/25/2014
Being Greek I thought that Mykonos
would not serve the kind of Mama's meal that was traditional on Easter but to my surprise, we had a wonderful meal of traditional lamb and trimmings. It was a joy! I would recommend it to everyone.! "
Dined on 4/20/2014
This was my 2nd time at this
restaurant. It had been recommended by few friends. First time a friend took me there; so good I had to go back with other first time diners. Everyone loved the food and the service couldn't have been better. I've been to greece and I can say the spanikopia was the best I've evr eaten. Definitey has become a favorite of mine and hope to go back soon. "
