What a great meal and the service matched. The dishes are. Unique and savory
this is my go to place i the area--I never fail to get a great meal at a reasonable price
Excellent, warm, welcoming service. Delicious food based on traditional Greek cuisine but with a modern and creative flair.
Everything is so delicious. Always a pleasure to come and see what's on special or stick with tried and true wonderful meals from the main menu.
Suburb every time!! I am a regular because of the consistency of the food, the service and the ambiance. And I adore Michael. He often interacts with his customers and he is so unassuming and kind. And what a talent! Love love love MPs in Irvington and am dying to try his other restaurants.
Inventive food and fun atmosphere. Unfortunately, we got a table in bad location against a wall and next to a waiter station. My chair got bumped all night long. Plus, we had to wait a while just to get that table. Likely won't repeat.
Would go back again and again
It was a pleasant evening for two couples. Good ambiance, friendly waiters. Terrific starters, especially the the three dip combination with pita. Bronzino had an interesting Greek presentation with black & green olives and mini roasted potatoes potatoes. The tuna portion was small, but delicious. All in all we would recommend MP Taverna for a casual evening.
Superb! Food and drink were beyond excellent. Service great. And we had multiple visits to our table from the chef himself! A lovely dining experience.
Our food was excellent, as usual. My friend had the Greek Paella and I had the Lamb Risotto. My friend's meal was piled high with tender and delicious seafood and my risotto had nice chunks of lamb that was so flavorful. I started with a Greek Margarita (with pomegranate juice) and a glass of Sancerre with my risotto. My friend had an (on purpose) oaky/creamy chardonnay with the paella.
The restaurant is beautiful, rustic and charming. We had great service and no one rushed us out when we were finished - it was a Wednesday night and although people kept coming in and the bar area was full, the main dining was not, which is not a criticism or a concern as it was a Wednesday night in February.
We arrived on time for our reservation and although the restaurant was very crowded and almost full we were seated without delay. Service was friendly but a bit confusing because we didn’t seem to have a regular wait staff and none were very well trained. The food was very good and prepared well. We brought our own bottle of wine but their corkage was $30 which was higher than most restaurants in the County.
My husband and I had one of the best meals we’ve ever had at MP Taverna. We went for my birthday dinner on a Saturday night and it was crowded but there were a few tables open. We were pleasantly surprised to see Michael Psilakis himself working the room...bringing plates, pouring water, and speaking to the customers. We tried the 3 dip sampler and they were awesome. I had one of the best pastas I’ve ever eaten the Long Fusili. My husband absolutely loved his lamb shank. Our waiter Manny was so sweet and friendly which made the meal even better. We cannot wait to return!!
This welcoming restaurant never fails to live up to the highest standards of service, comfort, delicious cuisine and warmth. We arrived 45 minutes early because a previous appointment ended early and the bartender graciously turned on the dining room lights so we could enjoy a drink and wait for our guest in comfort. I always order the sausage and steak and it was fantastic along with the yummy smashed potatoes. We love this place!
We always have a great meal here. The tomato cucumber salad is delicious as well as the octopus! I had the tuna special over spinach and yogurt, also delicious!
Chef Owen Michael psilakis was there overseeing everything from soup to nuts. Dinner was excellent. Seasoned to perfection. Drinks were great. Service phenomenal. I wished I could have stayed later. We closed the paces down!
Always good, great service
Great food. Perfectly prepared. Our server was a bit new but earnest and tried hard. Chef was out on the floor, checking in and “ doing it all”, including getting my coat at the end of the evening. Impressive. I’m going back!!
We’ve been there before and thought food has been better in the past. The pasta with short ribs was very light on the ribs. Could have been more generous. Tuna special was uneven. Asked for rare. 2 slices came rare, the other medium. Meatball appetizer was not special.
Grilled octopus was great and drinks were good.
Slow,slow service is our only complaint. Food is always good.
Never again. My wife and I just finished Valentine's Day dinner. The food was mediocre...the service was worse. Twice a food service person came to our table and presented us with food we did not order. My wife was halfway through her grilled Branzino (very salty and dry) before her salad arrived. I ordered a burger and it was pedestrian...dry with a bun that was as average as the burger. I asked for extra ketchup and hot sauce twice and that came halfway through my dinner. I asked for a second glass of wine three times and by the time that arrived I asked the waiter to send it back. I understand that Valentine's Day is a very busy time, however, I felt like MP Taverna was way over committed tonight to be able to provide any level of customer service that would satisfy most patrons. We live in Irvington and were hoping that this would be a restaurant we would like to return to.... perhaps a drink at the bar and an appetizer during happy hour but never again for dinner.
I have recommended MP Taverna in the past but felt it was slipping.
The food was still good and our waitress was very nice but they weren’t prepared to handle a Valentines Day crowd terribly well and overall I didn’t feel it was a special night, which is what I had been expecting (we chose to go there for Valentine’s Day based on past dinners feeling a bit more special.)
I was there for a valentines dinner . the food was very good, I know this already since I have eaten here before, but the service was terrible.
I was there for 25 mins before the the waiter took our order......and on top of that, he took the order of people that came in after us first!!!!!!!!!....did not bring our drinks out, forgot the oil, bread, etc.
all I can think of is they were understaffed but as a restaurant in westchester county, you should know this already.....I looked around the room and other people had the same issue.
do not go here on a special occasion/holiday, as you will be dissapointed.
MP Taverna was packed for Valentines Day Dinner. I had the tastiest Bay Scallop special. My husband had the fresh Tuna special on spinach over greek yogurt. MP Taverna never disappoints!
Service was atrocious. We never received our appetizers. My wife asked for her meal with no olives and the plate was smothered with olives. We requested refills on our drinks and never received them. We never saw the waiter other than when he took out order and brought us the check. When we complained to him about the terrible service his response was that the manager and bartender were not in that night. He offered no apology whatsoever or anything else to try to help the situation.
This wonderful restaurant was overwhelmed on Valentine's Day. Suggest they take fewer reservations on these "occasion" nights. We appreciate that everyone tried, but the experience did not measure up to prior dinners.
Only negative were the cocktails (white wine sangria & whisky cocktail) which were mixed too lightly.
Except for the exceptionally long time it took to get a drink at the bar (poorly staffed for a Saturday night), everything else was wonderful as usual.
We ordered specials - Lamb Chops and Spicy Tuna. Both cooked and spiced to perfection! Absolutely fantastic.
Great tasting food. Fantastic service. Enjoyable location.
Another great evening at MP Taverna! The service and food were excellent.
Ambiance was casually elegant. Grande ceilings but yet cozy atmosphere. Excellent and prompt service. Food was freshly prepared and delicious. Great options on the menu for all. I would definitely go back!
Always delicious food and gracious service. This has become a favorite place for lunch.
MP Taverna exceeded my expections! The food was exceptional. The waiter was helpful, courteous and personable! Out of 5 stars - this was a 10!
They kept mixing up our orders delivering to the table, but once that was straightened out everything was delicious.
We had to wait 20 extra minutes after the time of our reservation even when we arrived 15 minutes earlier. I asked a couple of time if our table was ready and the last time I asked the hostess said: oh yeah I’m sorry I can sit you now...?...husband ordered wine, glass was dirty, this is a “Greek” place yet they gave us cold Italian bread, you have to pay for the pita and yogurt sauce. The waitress seemed very unorganized, they brought us good twice that we didn’t order and took it back to the kitchen only to come back a few minutes later and give it to a couple 2 tables away from us. Place was busy because I guess they don’t have a lot of competition around, but I won’t come back. The one in Roslyn is 100 times better.
Food was very good as always. The fish and lamb options are always excellent. Our server, Ella, was terrific - friendly, attentive, helpful etc.
We've had lunch and dinner at this restaurant a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food is top-quality, with a great selection of excellent fish, and all the sides are great as well. The service is friendly, professional and attentive. Reservations are a definite must on the weekends, and even week-day lunches as this place is crowded, but a great choice for a pleasant evening out.
Great food prepared and served in a unique way with unusual (good, not hot) flavorings. Reasonable prices. Man size portions. One of my favs.
MP Taverna offers probably some of the most notable food in the area. Everyone we take there always enjoys their meal. The service is great as well. Love everything I've ordered there.
