MP Taverna is now offering socially distanced dining inside. We require that all guests dining indoors wear a mask or face covering when NOT eating or drinking.

MP Taverna is also offering outdoor dining in the MP Open Air Corral depending on the weather. Outdoor reservations are for the tent area ONLY. Outdoor reservations are subject to change based on weather. Please call restaurant if chance of rain or snow as outdoor dining may be closed.

MP Taverna, Chef Michael Psilakis’s modern interpretation of a traditional Greek tavern, is an exciting staple in the Westchester dining scene, located steps from the Metro-North Railroad and a stone’s throw from the Hudson River. Open for lunch and dinner, MP Taverna’s accessible, Greek-inspired menu brings Psilakis’ Greek fare into the American culinary lexicon and is another step towards the chef’s goal of putting Greek cuisine on the culinary main stage.

Ate in heated tent, one other party was present so it was nice. Service was excellent, food was good (although one item, fusilli, was brought to the table well after the other entrees. No dessert menu, understandable but disappointing.

Took my father here as he was visiting from out of town. Have been before it’s a great restaurant. Only issue was our table for 5 was at the very end of the restaurant and they had two lights out so the table was very dark. And although we asked for a candle or something this never appeared. Not the end of the world, a great meal overall. Also this table was close to the music speaker so it was a bit loud also.

Three of our group of four made the mistake of ordering the "Montauk line caught" swordfish, which must have been caught months ago. We asked how fresh it was before ordering, and perhaps should have seen a red flag when our waiter cheerfully responded, "within days." He also recommended the swordfish, however. It was disappointing to pay such hefty prices and be served fish so old that everyone who ordered it left 90% on their plates. We were not offered any sort of a refund.

Stick with the chicken!

It was nice but the food was a bit salty. Also they brought out the second course while we were still eating our appetizers. It felt very rushed. Lastly, they don’t have a dessert menu - they just give everyone a free small cannoli. It was fine but seemed strange for a restaurant of this caliber.

M P Taverna is one of our favorite restaurants in the Rivertowns. You can always expect exceptional food in the lovely atmosphere with caring staff. We’ve enjoyed many family occasions as well as quiet Sunday brunches. You won’t be disappointed!

First visit since the refurbishment of the restaurant. BIG success. Chairs are particularly comfortable. The smashed potato fries that came with the chicken
souvlaki were terrific. However, there could me more chicken on the souvlaki and
while the filling and the pita were good, it is too difficult to roll to eat. A friend
ordered the fried calamari and cauliflower appetizer as her lunch. It was large enough to be a lunch main or a shareable appetizer. We were too full for dessert!

Food & service were excellent, tent was good, a tad drafty in near the back. Someone who answered the phone on Saturday the 29th at 11:45AM was slightly gruff.
Overall I would definitely go back.
