    This is our go to place whenever we go up North to see a concert at the Wellmont. We really enjoy the cold appetizer for 2 and since we were with another couple we ordered extra Spanakopita. 3 out of 4 of us had gyro platters and the other had a chicken risotto. The gyro platter was delicious, the meat was very tasty and it was served with salad, Tzatziki sauce and crispy potatoes. My friend asked for extra pita bread to eat hers with. My other friend said the risotto dish was very tasty and he was glad he ordered something different this time. We brought our own wine and some beers and our waitress was so friendly & helpful. I wish I knew her name so I could give her a shout out.

    My only real gripe with this restaurant is they gave away my 6:30 confirmed, checked in reservation. I checked in on my phone as well as at the restaurant desk on time and informed the hostess my friends were parking the car. I also informed her I was quickly using the restroom before being seated at the table. My friends arrived and checked in with the hostess as I was met them at the front desk. She proceeds to tell us they no longer have our reservations. We settled for seating at the bar, right beside the kitchen because we had to make a show at the Wellmont Theater. Food was very good. It is loud in the restaurant.

    We had to move our seats for a event that did not happen. No drinks except seltzer water, ginger ale, and coke. Raw and not seasoned food was served to our family. To make sure they covered all basis of a horrible experience someone was smoking a cigarette at the next table on the inside. I’m not sure that’s legal but hey I am just a patron. Never ever again.

    What a fiasco - on Mother's Day to boot. Clearly either OT or the Greek Taverna decided the restaurant had unlimited capacity. There was a huge line in which there was mass confusion. The host would just leave the check-in area 10+ minutes at a time. Turns out, EVERYONE waiting had reservations, which made reservations useless. But because the host would leave no one could check in and everyone bunched around the check-in area. No organization to the crowd made everyone frustrated. We got seated at like 640 with a 600 reservation and the host, rudely, tells us 'don't expect food quick. I don't want to hear anything when it takes a while.' We were seated and waited 10 minutes. We never received menus, nor a wait staff member to even greet us. Our table was on top of two others so every time anyone moved, someone else got bumped. At this point we decided the frustration level was way too high. We up and left. There is no world I will ever give a dime to this restaurant in my life. I will never go there. I will never order take out. I will not try other locations. I will actively tell others to go to literally any other restaurant in Montclair. If anyone at OT reads this review, I hope they look in to this issue as we were not the only ones to feel this way. Please fix overbooking issue.

    We enjoyed our time there, The food was good but took a very long time to come out. I am not sure they could find our reservation but they did seat us in a timely manner. It was also Mother's Day would could have added to that. They did make a special effort to bring a piece of cake and sing Happy Birthday to my mother which I greatly appreciated. The waiter was very kind and attentive. The place was PACKED and all seemed to be really enjoying themselves.

    Everyone was packed in like a can of sardines. My reservation was for 330 and they sat us down around four. And they didn’t finish taking our order till 445. Around 510 the waiter came back to us asking us what our order was and he forgot to put it in. When we finally got our food it was 6 PM and it was bland and my fish was undercooked. Horrible customer service and not worth the money by any means I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Our second time at the place, we choose this for mother day because it was conveniently close to us, our server was distracted, when he was taking our food order he was paying attention to what happen at other tables, food arrived was good but to get coffee it took us like 15 minutes, he did end up giving us free coffee 😀, overall the experience was great the food was excellent.

    I have now been to Greek Taverna 3 times. The first time we had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seated even with a reservation. We loved the food so much and had a delicious meal so we knew we would be back. The second time was the evening of a snowstorm that was finishing. We were one of the only occupied tables in the restaurant, and again the food was great. This past Saturday we had a 7:30 reservation and didn’t get seated until 8:15. The same was for another group waiting with us. Once we were seated, our food can out quickly, correctly and again was amazing. However, we were surprised that we weren’t offered any sort of discount, free appetizer, dessert, nothing for the wait. It was clear we were very frustrated with the wait time. Moral of the review- we love the Greek Taverna food, but only go very early, at off times or if you are prepared to wait because I have a feeling that reservations aren’t always honored here.

    place amazing, food very good. Even though the Grill Calamari and the Sea food Platter is the same thing, just without the shrimp. There Humus and bread was amazing, the baby lamb was awesome too. The waiter was very pleasant, however, after the place started to get busy I notice that he was the only one working (serving the tables) and the owner was arguing with him and the whole staff in front of the whole restaurant. So I didn't like the way the owner handle the situation, embarrassing the waiter IN front of everyone.
