Greek Taverna - Montclair
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.
Girls night before a concert at the Wellmont.
Great service. We’ll prepared food. Very generous portions. Mussles were outstanding.
Very good food but service is marginal at best. Waiter would disappear for extended periods of time. If you want good Greek food but don't care about service and having a long meal then give this place a try.
Excellent food and service! Great choices of traditional Greek dishes!
The food was excellent. The server was attentive and the atmosphere was nice.
Portions were amazing and food was great tasting!
Fantastic place. We went early (around 5:30) on Saturday night, so it was still quiet. The food was excellent and the place was accommodating. Had a party of 9 and everyone was happy. I got the shrimp souflaki and devoured it. Delicious!
WONDERFUL! lots of delicious food, start with appetizers, then entree, finish with dessert. A beautiful use of an old building, turned into a rustic Greek Taverna (with FREE parking). My second time here, both times very leisurely, no rush at all, reasonable prices, GREAT variety of all kinds of Greek food. I look forward to more visits!
Service was terrific and the food was good.
Food was not as good as the Edgewater location . We order the same dishes and they were sub par. Our waiter was not very attentive and we had to flag him several times to come over.
Very, very noisy even though partially occupied. Humus was good, but lamb chops and octopus were average at best.
There was no customer service satisfaction. However, another waiter finished helping us out and was exceptional. Should be a team working together to serve together. Otherwise. All was well
Food here is always excellent, but we needed to flag down a server to order drinks and then again to order our meal.
Went back just two weeks after -- enjoyed the food, the service! Greek Taverna is now officially my absolute fave restaurant.
Awesome restaurant with excellent service and exceptional food. Experience was serene. Ty
Was expecting more from Greek Taverna. Love Greek food and have been to many Greek restaurants- this one was a real disappointment. Food was below average and nothing tasted freshly prepared. We had spanakopita, saganaki, moussaka and youvetsi. Spanakopita tasted like it had been frozen and the saganaki was served as fried cheese sticks (never in any Greek Restaurant have I had it served this way). Main courses were nothing special and all felt pre-prepared not in a good way. Nothing tasted authentic. Service was pretty good overall. I would not return.
The food and atmosphere was amazing! I’m looking forward to my next visit!
Food was very tasty overall. Service was friendly, but no where to be found at times. It was a Mother's Day menu as we went for the holiday, so the menu selection wasn't the same as normal days. I would go back, but not on a holiday.
I highly recommend this place for its excellent food, service and ambience.
It totally exceeded my expectations.
Initial seating was lousy but waiter was amazing and friendly
Been there several times, and will be back! The food is always fresh and the service is on point.
Always a great meal and wonderful service. Tom is the best server and always on top of his game. Such a family friendly restaurant. Just wish they had loukoumades!!!
Varied menu with very ample portions. The appetizers are excellent and the entree well prepared. Service was very attentive, friendly and professional.
We enjoyed our meal and the service. Would definitely return.
Food fresh and authentic Greek. Wait staff friendly, helpful but not attentive to noticing assist requested repeatedly. Cost can escalate if order too many selections, which is easy to do. Baclava is The Best, fresh, plentiful, melt in your mouth delicious. Wine just ok.
Food was delicious. Large portions. Waiters were wonderful. Was out in time for a concert. 👍🏻👍🏻
The restaurant was noisy, the food was mediocre and the prices were high for the quality of the food. The best deal was the wine, well priced and good.
We ate here before a show at the Wellmont. We really enjoyed the cold appetizer for 2 & we split the gyro platter. They were very generous with the meat & were expecting more salad. Although it’s BYOB they do have wine & I was able to get a glass of Chardonnay. We would definitely go back if in the area & wanted Greek food.
