Greek Taverna - Montclair
Grilled sliced chicken breast served with salad, Tzatziki sauce and rice
Grilled marinated lamb filet with onions and pepper on a stick served with Tzatziki sauce and rice
When we entered, I asked for outdoors dining. The staff at the desk said no and proceeded to sit us inside near other customers. Shortly afterwards, she and other staff started to seat customers outside.
We have a great time food and experience were good!
Party of 5 for Father's Day. Everyone was happy with their choices and the food was excellent. Would recommend to anyone.
We have been going there for years and hadn’t been since before COVID. Unfortunately the food quality and portions were just not the same. Truly disappointed
The food was good and the ambiance was relaxed. However, the staff is inattentive and getting our server to come by our table proved to be difficult. More than half our time at the restaurant was spent waiting.
Food excellent, service good. Tables near the glass doors very cold. nothing seals and the cold air just comes in. Had to eat dinner with my jacket on.
All great will come back soon
Very good, reasonably priced food. We’ll be back!
The nose level was inten
Waitress screwed up our order. We were first served entrees that we did not order. After waiting a while the waitress appeared with the entrees we originally ordered. I asked her to make sure when our check was presented that it reflected our original order. Guess what? It didn’t.
Otherwise the food was tasty. My only nit is that the horitaki salad had cubed feta and the portions seemed smaller than what I recall under the previous owner. A cost saving measure, perhaps?
We had a great time all covid safe also. We BYOB. Food was awesome tasty and good temperature.
Thought it was great! Servers were attentive and the sampling of dips/sauces as an app with pita was perfect to share with a friend while catching up.
This is my favorite Greek restaurant because of the food quality and the atmosphere. Casual environment,
easy to get to and parking! One of the best dining experiences around. My party of 8 was completely comfortable, we enjoyed the food and the attentive service. Highly recommend.
Food was good, but it didn’t “wow” me. The cook on the food was on point, but it was lacking seasoning. I did come to the restaurant an hour before closing, so maybe that was a factor. Overall, I would go back to give it another chance.
Good food and service. Like that it’s a BYOB too.
Our go to spot for date night. Wonderful food, great service.
great food and service! Everyone loved the place and food!
Excellent food and service!
Staff were friendly and cheerful.
This was our 2nd time here before a show at the Welmont. There were 4 of us and we split the cold appetizer for 2 - delicious, the hummus plate - best ever and the pita bread was SO GOOD & a sausage appetizer with orange zest which was very tasty.
Both couples had the same dinners, a gyro platter and mousakka. The dishes were delicious and since they were so big we had plenty to take home and enjoy for dinner the next night. This is now our go to spot whenever we are in the area. The staff is very nice as well. Great place.
Some of the best Greek food I’ve ever had, and it was very reasonably priced. It was a perfect dinner for a romantic Valentine’s Day. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to eat. Ayallsa.
I made a reservation for Valentine’s Day. My boyfriend and I were talking about the good reviews on this restaurant, then our experience. We agreed that either the restaurant didn’t expect to have that amount of people that night or our waitress was new in the restaurant and wasn’t taking table orders well. We didn’t want to be rude (but after the waiting, waiting ) we ordered dessert and changed our order to go. Desserts were free as a courtesy. In general, we enjoyed the appetizers and the desserts. Great food, we want to go back with better luck.
Very crowded at check in but it was Valentine’s Day. Hostess was amazing and kept her cool. Great food!!!
We dined on the side room which was very cold but it was Valentine’s Day so it was very busy, understandable. Food still came out great! Authentic Greek food, good portions. The pita bread basket was delicious accompanied with the Greek spreads, namely hummus, Tzatziki and the grilled eggplant spread. The grilled whole fish was outstanding, we picked loup de mer, perfectly executed, very fresh and moist flesh. The fish belly was cleaned nicely and no bitterness or fishy taste. Highly recommend! The lamb souvlaki was cooked a point. definitely will go back again!
The service and staff were outstanding. The food was the best Greek meal that I have had in a long time.
Delicious food! Keto friendly!
Excellent service and great food. Loved the value as well. Only bad thing is the seating, too close to others can’t get up to go to the bathroom.
Good Montclair Greek food. Definitely would recommend.
Fabulous food, fabulous service. Very big portions of food. Clean all around great experience.
There were three of us and we decided to share a small salad, a moussaka and a chicken Slouvaki. There was so much food that we couldn’t possibly finish. Everything was delicious, even the pita bread! The restaurant was very quiet because it was lunchtime and there were only two other tables occupied. They have a full lunch menu, but we ordered from the regular dinner menu. I will surely recommend it to my lunch group of 12 women for our next get together.
We made a last minute reservation for 10 and they were so accommodating! There was a large table away from the rest of the tables and it was a perfect area for a larger group. We had many appetizers and they were all good. The fried calamari and octopus were exceptional. Everyone enjoyed their dinners as well. We had chicken, shrimp and lamb souvlaki. As well as the chicken platter. Food is so fresh and well seasoned. The staff was on top of everything. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was great! Would recommend
The hostess was very helpful in seating me away from people I knew and was uncomfortable eating next to. Excellent customer service and very appreciated.
Good, solid choice. Food was excellent. Not too busy on a Sunday evening.
The food is delicious and the servings plentiful. Make sure to try these apps: Mushrooms in tomato sauce, grilled halumi, the lima beans, and the salmon entree. Delicious. The only disappointment was the spanakopita which was bland. The chocolate baklava is outstanding! It's noisy so not the best place for an intimate conversation but otherwise a great choice.
Lovely environment for a family dinner; spacious and very moderate noise level so everyone could be heard. Vegetarian moussaka was outstanding as were the pork chops, lamb skewers, and Greek salad with grilled salmon ( very large piece of salmon). The service was very good as well. Highly recommend.
Food was very good. I know its Greek, but having some greens on the plate, besides the peppers and onions would go along way! The meat was excellent and bountiful, so greens help offset all that protein.
Second chance trying this restaurant !
Open kitchen and cooks on there phones.
Service was slow for the appetizers.
Service for dinner was even SLOWER
Restaurant. was empty.
Felt should’ve come over and apologized.
MAYBE offer complimentary dessert.
NOT sure if ever going back
The food is consistently great. Huge portions and a great menu!
Really good restaurant. Love the lemon chicken soup. Cannot understand why the restaurant wasn’t at all busy. Aside from our table, there was only one other table occupied. Our waitress was delightful. Hopefully they will do better.
