Axia is always a reliably good restaurant all the way around. Happy we chose to celebrate New Year’s Eve here! They have also added extra safety barriers between tables due to the pandemic. We felt very safe eating here.

Only issue masks were not worn by servers or anyone in staff including owner who greeted us at entrance. One of our guests was very upset by this as her sister is an emergency room doctor. In view of the Omicron variant being pervasive in NY NJ area I agree that masks on servers should have bee worn

Food was good, especially octopus appetizer. The Bronzino was fresh and delicious. The moussaka Tenafly was a bit ambitious with cinnamon but, still pretty good too. A lovely dinner with excellent service. We will surely return!

Dining at Axia is always a treat. The moussaka is the best (NO potatoes!). Last night they needed a 2nd waiter in the tent as the weather was warm for mid-November. Axia is always our go-to restaurant for a delicious meal.

Been here several times in the last few years and it used to be so good…it started to decline last three years but last night was the worst…our waiter was clearly not enjoying his job, there had been a large party earlier and apparently everyone ordered octopus so when we arrived for our reservation at 7pm the octopus was gone. Running out or octopus at a Greek restaurant is definitely a negative.
Food was sub par, bland and unexciting. The best thing we had was the spanakopita, the smoked cheese pita, Greek sangria and the kefalograviera…everything else was underwhelming. Way too pricey for the quality of food and service.
Sadly, we won’t return.

We had to rate the service fair, but to be fair we realize the employee problem for all restaurants. The service was very slow but good. The lack of help is affecting all businesses.
Still one of the best restaurants in North Bergen County!

I didn’t feel last night was at Axia’s usual high standards. The service was incredibly slow and the food was not up to par. My chicken was on the dry side. The wait staff did a lot of standing around and talking.

We were a party of 5, had to wait 75 min to hear from the waitress that that they ran out of one of the main courses. We requested to speak to a manager who did not bother to come throughout dinner. We received our main course replacement 90 min into the dinner, which was completely burned. A very poor experience on a Sunday evening
