Our meal at Axia Taverna was absolutely outstanding. We started with the Greek Salad, had a Monk fish and parpadella, with brown butter sauce entree and added the Brussels sprouts as a side. Each dish was delicious, with delicate sauces which enhanced, and did not overpower the flavors of the vegetables and fish. The server helped us select a perfectly paired wine and the portions were more than filling. We were so impressed with our experience that we plan on bringing out of town guests to the restaurant in the near future. An excellent meal and we wholeheartedly recommend Axia Taverna.
Excellent value. Good food and service. Especially enjoy Axia for lunch when it’s quiet and low key.
Fabulous dinner prior to a show at Bergen PAC. The presentations are quite special. I enjoyed the olive crusted salmon with spinach rice and would order it again. The b-ouzo lava cake was light; a chocolate -lover would want a richer, denser cake. So order a Greek dessert and be happy!
The food is very good. Definitely one of the top restaurants in the area. Accoustics can be very problematic in certain sections of the restaurant.
While not unfriendly, my main criticism is that I have probably been at the restaurant 6 to 10 times a year each year over the last several years. Often bringing people with me in addition to my wife and other family members. I say hello to the host or maître de when I walk in and they respond. However, no one has ever said welcome back, nice to see you or referred to me by name. Similarly, no one has ever offered a drink or a dessert, etc. To me, it is important to feel welcome and comfortable when dining out. I think the restaurant misses opportunities in that regard and makes the experience less than it could and should easily be based on the quality of the food.
LOVED this place- wasn't sure what to expect as we don't live in the area, but so glad we took the chance! They were so accommodating and let us sit at the upstairs bar, great service, accommodated a food allergy and the food and specialty drinks were delicious, the space was beautiful and chic. It's a gem for sure!
We find it a wonderful place to meet friends from NYC. It's easy to park, the food is delicious, and they will honor a quiet table so that you can catch up.
We were against the window and there was a terrible draft- we had to keep our coats on. The food took a really long time. Food was good but overpriced a bit based on overall experience.
Great food and service gets better with each visit!!
Food is so fresh and delicious! If you havent been you must go! Great place for lunch,dinner or just hanging at the bar.
Great restaurant with good food
Cold food. Mediocre service. Way too expensive for the value.
My fourth visit, this time to celebrate my birthday with family. Best restaurant in Northern New Jersey, and one of the best I've encountered ever. Love it.
The food is almost always great. The restaurant is vibrant and full of energy, always making for a fun night out. However, this time, the service was really slow. Our food took forever to come out and the server was extremely slow to clear dishes from the main course.
Exceptional Red Snapper! Great wine. Treat yourself to a nIght at one of Bergen County’s Best spots. You won’t be disappointed.
Always enjoy this pretty neighborhood spot. Food is great and lighting and service is lovely. My only complaint is they took a delish tuna entree off the menu and don't replace it. $38 branzino special isn't the same.
