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.
All reservations are for indoor dining ONLY.

Additionally, MP Taverna is offering outdoor dining under our MP Patio Tent or in the MP Open Air Corral. All outdoor seating is on a first come - first serve basis.

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.

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!

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

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”.

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.

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

We have patronized this restaurant for years but on this evening we were politely asked to leave after not even 1 and a half hours in the middle of a conversation with our friends. We were offered drinks at the bar which was standing room only and of which we did not went. Although the food and service were good, this put a damper on the evening for us we will have to think twice about making another reservation. I would hope that MP would adjust their reservation times so that this does not occur again. Less reservations but more satisfied customers!

Go for the food - it was par excellence ! Smashed fries were divine ! Huge Salad & Pasta portions for dinner. My husband loved his Branzino. Only blip was that they didn't remember it was our Anniversary & they'd even asked themselves if it was a special occasion. I'd go back & soon !

My wife had the branzini and she was vey happy well cooked and plenty. The octopus appetizer was excellent. I was disappointed with my choice, angus hanger steak... I was expecting to get slices of meat but instead I got bite size chunks it was served with Greek sausages that were so salty that could raise even a child’s blood pressure. I don’t recommended. On another occasion o ordered the lamb shank... it had an excessive amount of fat. Maybe I should stick to the fish next time or a plain old ny steak with no frills!

What’s not to like about this place! The food is always delicious, the staff attentive and friendly and the atmosphere is lovely. We went for Valentine’s Day and I loved that they just had their regular menu with some specials instead of an overpriced price fixe with more food than I can eat. I had the rack of lamb. It was a generous portion, cooked and seasoned to perfection.
