Diner Reviews
  • "We've eaten here often and it's consistently good. If you go early, as we did this time, it's not very busy and you can enjoy a quiet meal. Go later when the crowd arrives and the energy definitely picks up. Start out with the complementary mash-it-yourself hummus served with slices of pita bread. My wife had the eggplant dish and I had the gyro plate. We suggest that you substitute the sautéed spinach or green beans for the Greek potatoes, as we did. Both are superb. Service was outstanding! If anything was disappointing, it was dessert. We had wanted to have galaktoboureco, but they had none. Instead we had baklava, which is typically very sweet because it's saturated with honey. Theirs was little more than baked filo dough."

  • "Fantastic Greek food. They do some traditional Greek dancing as the evening goes on, which was a lot of fun!"

  • "I felt like I was in a bad movie. Lousy drinks, ok food if you could stomach it through the noise and bad service. I forgot why I hadn't gone back there in years. I remembered Saturday, it is an animal house on steroids.What a mess."

  • "The restaurant was a great big bar with parties going on and people dancing on tables. The music was very loud. The staff did try to help us. It was just a bad choice for the kind of dinner we were hoping for."

  • "Had a great dinner with the meatballs and Greek Salad followed by the Moussaka and Lamb Shank with Orzo. Moussaka was awesome! Read the negative reviews and was expecting some problems. No problems and will return."

  • "I always have dinner here when I visit Atlanta. I have never been disappointed in the food, service or price. I recommend Taverna Placka as the best Greek restaurant in the Atlanta area. I have tried several and Plaka wins hands down."

  • "This unique restaurant is always on our mind when we are in the mood for good energy great food and show. We have numerously been there is small and large groups and it's always a blast. Last week however was good but salad could have been fresher. We will continue coming here!"

  • "We got there at 7:30 on a Saturday evening (albeit, the one after Thanksgiving) and it was pretty empty, which was unusual. The large group tables filled up quickly and the mood was very energetic, belly dancing, and napkins all over. Service was a little slow, but the food was great!"

  • "Some friends wanted to go here for a night out. We used to go a good amount several years back and LOVED IT! But they changed ownership at some point and we went two or three times and just felt like the food an service were not as good as before. We went last wk and were impressed by how good it was! Will for sure go back! The lamb dish is fab., love the hummus and fresh pita and the drinks were strong!"

  • "We were one of 3 tables in the whole restaurant at 730, and that was a little awkward. The belly dancer would be better once the restaurant was full, it was just a little odd with so few people. The waiter was looking for a party on Thursday night at 730, that was also a little weird! The food was good but I think the atmosphere will keep me away from this place!"

  • "We went to Taverna Plaka to celebrate my daughter getting her driver's license. It is a great place to have some fun. The food is good, but not great. You go for the craziness and to celebrate which they do the best!"
