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!
