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.

This is one of the premier dining experiences in Westchester. Chef Michael is a wonder. We were here with a party of 4. Everything was a dream--great ambience, and food and drink that made us sorry not to be bigger people! We were still thinking about it the next day. Worth a trip even from the city!
the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. highly recommended. the owner is a super guy too:
I went to the MP taverna located in Astoria (when they were open) and the Irvington location did not disappoint! Food was still amazing, service was great, and we had the honor of being served by Chef Psilakis. Such a humble person.
Consistently outstanding. I had a whole Bronzino this time and moaned throughout!
Overall, it was good but was so disappointing. I chose this restaurant for my 50th birthday celebration even though I have never been there. I called three times and noted on my request that it was a special birthday occasion. But NO ONE bothered to tell me ahead of time that there was NO desserts! The reason they said was Covid which has nothing to do with desserts. The least they could have done is to tell us when I called and after receiving my reservation here that it was for a birthday. If they cared about their customers, they would have paid attention to this detail. It was so disappointing and none even cared or even felt sorry about it. No effort to even make up for it.
Wow! I cannot say enough good things about the soup, salad and pasta, MP Taverna and the experience Chef Michael created. Michael was stellar. Made us feel comfortable with his engagement, talent and overall commitment to our experience. He did everything to such a high level! Love this place!
We have never had a bad experience here. Love the new interior renovations. I have been so impressed with how they have navigated servicing patrons throughout the pandemic.
Fantastic food! Great service!
High quality and delicious food. No desert available
Awesome dining experience!
We have gone just a few times. The ambiance is great even with the current Covid situation. Our server Steven is one of the best we have ever had at any venue. The food was exceptional and the value is very fair. I look forward to going back soon.
We were celebrating our anniversary. The food, service and atmosphere were fantastic. Map never disappoints.
The waiter gave us wrong menus when seated. Anything I asked for wasn't being served. Then the waiter realized we had the wrong menus.
Once the food came it was a disappointment . The chicken was not good it tasted like chicken with a lemon squeezed on it. The steak and sausage was just ok.
The prices are high Which we don't mind paying if it's worth it and this place definitely was not!
Great ambiance, excellent drinks and fantastic food.
MP Taverna is my go-to place for wonderful food. Kudos to the owner for keeping this restaurant going during these difficult times.
The food here is always excellent, the portions are ample size and very tasty. We have never had a bad meal and that goes for the service as well. The owner is always around and comes by checking to make sure everything is to your liking. I had the salmon, my husband had the branzino our friends had lamb chops and the dumplings. Everyone was very impressed with their meal. You can’t go wrong at MP Taverna !
My friend and I had a wonderful time there! We went there because the restaurant week. We were surprised when the waiter told us that it was a mistake, even though the restaurant’s name was on the selection. The food was delicious!!! The restaurant was not crowded, so it was perfect for the social distance.
Food was ok and good but nothing spectacularly outstanding for my expectations on MP Taverna. For example, I found the Calamari and Cauliflower dish ok, the calamari was over breaded and a bit overdone. Also only could find 4 pieces of the cauliflower so this dish was 98% calamari. We also order the mixed grilled, chicken and sausages were good and juicy, one of them split on 2 half was overdone, fries were good but salty, and this dish really needs some kind of sauce, compote, or something that goes with the meat. Overall though a nice experience.
Sat in the outside tent, as nice as it can be at this time. They used nicer disposable tableware, and served from take out containers. A bit odd, but I think a very good choice, considering. Every bite of food was out of this world delicious, cocktails as well. I would highly recommend. A very nice high end date meal.
If anything, I’d suggest some music in the tent
Excellent as always! Perfect spacing indoors and outdoors was also available under tent or by fireplace.
MP Taverna remains a steady reliable and treasured part of the Irvington community. Chef Psilakis has continued his commitment to the community staying open and providing amazing food in these difficult and trying times. If the smashed French fries are in my afterlife then that would be proof that I wound up in the “good place”.
Incredible food and drinks. Everything is always so fresh and delicious
Very conscious about Covid safety. However, some entrees are difficult to eat due to the plastic containers in which the food is served. This pertains to the outdoor dining option, which is very pleasant.
Amazing food and service
We celebrated our friend’s birthday. Servers Dan and Derek went above and beyond. Extremely friendly and accommodating. Thank you for a great evening!
The food is always delicious! The shrimp in tomato sauce sprinkled with feta is highly recommended.
Great food Great service nice ambiance
Excellent food and service with big portions and cool bar drinks!
Our service was quick and attentive and food was delicious! Would return and recommend
We really enjoyed our dinner here! The service was great and the food was timed well. The chicken and fish dish we had were delicious and I loved the pita bread with the tzatiksi and the octopus was really tender and meaty. Would definitely go back!
From the moment I walked in until I left, I felt safe and welcomed. The indoor tables were appropriately spaced, the food was excellent and service impeccable.
MP has nailed the covid 19 dining experience with distanced & outdoor seating, masks, QR code menus and online pre order options.
Plus, food is delicious and staff is so friendly, we keep going back.
The food was excellent. We try the octopus, it was unbelievable so good. I recommend to everyone looking for a quality time. We are definitely going back.
I had a great meal at MP Taverna. The lamb burger was huge (!) and savory. The grilled octopus was perfectly cooked with a great sauce. Greek sausage was delicious. Chef Michael Psilakis is doing a phenomenal job!
We all had different entrees and were very satisfied. Plastic plates and glasses were attractive and disposable. And it was a beautiful sunset
This was our first visit to MP Taverna, but not our last. Service and ambiance were great. There was a bar crowd, but it was set apart from the dining room, so the noise level was moderate. The food was awesome and tasted a definite notch above more typical Greek food.
The crispy brazino couldn’t have been more fresh and tasty. It was enveloped in a light sauce of olives, tomatoes and fingerling potatoes. The owner, Michael Psilakis, is friendly and interested and creates a warm environment. Waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable and friendly. Modern Greek cuisine is luscious and sophisticated
Whole animal feast to remember!! The whole roasted pig couldn’t have been prepared any better. Michael did an outstanding job creating dishes with flavors from around the world, from various parts of the pig. Amazing experience.
food as always was good and reliable--brought a guest from Ireland and she was very pleased
Server was not friendly
