It was a Mother's day celebration and I thought this will be a great selected restaurant for my family. The food that we like were not offered for "Sunday" such as 'seafood platter" and dolma- the well-known regular Greek appetizer! We were surprised. Anyway, we ordered other food that were available for the day and all were fine. Well, while we were enjoying our meal, my son noticed one family came and asked the waiter ordered "seafood platter". And they got it! I asked the waitress why our waiter didn't advise us that we can asked for a request for "seafood-platter"..The waitress said we were not regular customer and manager given her the approval to have it! WOW . Anyway, we let it go so our day will not ruin more specially it was a MOTHER's Day!. Our waiter apologized later. This will be our first and last visit in this restaurant.

This wasn't the restaurant we originally had hoped for on a Valentine's day, however we made this reservation literally 10 mins prior and hoped for the best since it was my first time ever trying Greek food. My husband and I were seated right away. It was more of a casual restaurant than I thought and I wouldn't say it's a romantic restaurant at all. The service was okay, nothing spectacular since he didn't even share what the special was. I ordered the pork chop and my husband ordered something that had cheese, eggplants, ground beef mixed? And some kind of spinach pie as an appetizer. The food was horrible. I didn't like it at all. My pork chop was so dry it tasted and looked like it has been microwaved three times prior to being served to me. It had no taste, it was hard to chew and I told the server to take the dish away. My husband said he didn't like his food one bit but wanted to eat just to eat. The only thing that was good on our table was their complimentary bread and that was it. Never again I will go here. Oh, I received a free rose for Valentine's day. Well. Thanks for that I guess.

Had a lovely meal at Greek Taverna. Food was excellent . Four of us were able to share a large Greek salad. The salad was fresh and had large chunks of feta. Two of us shared a shrimp gyro that was enough for two. While we would have liked to sit outside, the lack of shade made it less desirable so we ate in the air conditioned inside which was very pleasant.

This is a very, very good Greek restaurant, comparable to those costing much more. Only negative is the lack of a liquor license. I need my Ouzo! You can buy wine by the bottle.

The place was quite noisy and not well suited for a date or special occasion.

The food was very average, especially for the price. The grilled fish special, bronzino, was satisfactory but at $30.00 overpriced for the type of restaurant. We also had the lamb shank which was highly recommended but it was not moist and tender as the waitress promised.

We also had the grilled octopus but this was rubbery. Overall the restaurant was average. It is somewhat pricey for what you get.

The food is great. Nice place. Only complaint is we ordered seafood appetizer they said was for 2. It was bigger than my main course. The price was $25. This is more expensive than most of the meals. Sneaky way to hit the customer with a larger bill. Otherwise great.

Excellent service, friendly and accommodating staff, but the food was OK at best. A $24 shrimp dish should have more then 8 small shrimps in it. That being said - the taste and quality were excellent but the value was terrible.
