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.

The Grilled Squid had no taste. I had a lamb shish kebab that was just ok. I was expecting more.

I would give them 10 stars if that was an option! We haven't had such an excellent service in a long time. Our waitress went above and beyond to make my sister's birthday a memorable experience for the entire family.
Keep up the good work!

Our waitress was very informative, pleasant, attentive and made us laugh. The food was absolutely delicious! I am very particular about my seafood and the shrimp souvlaki and Solomon were cooked to perfection with wonderful flavor! Will definitely be returning to try out more menu items!

Three out of five were not happy with their meals. Entrees came out before appetizers were finished. Food was overcooked.

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.

Moussaka was a huge portion, could feed 4 people. Husband's lamb chops were delicious, tender, but father in-laws lamb shish kebab was overcooked and tough. Food was authentic and made to order.

Excellent, as always. Our 'home away from home' local favorite restaurant. The fresh fish and traditional Greek menu items offer an unbeatable selection. Even the teas are served in lovely cups and saucers. Highly recommended!

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.
