I have been to this restaurant many times. I liked when it first opened as an alternative to other pricey scene Greek restaurants nearby. Summer their rooftop is really nice to sit out on. However prices have gone up and food and service have gone down.
This past Saturday we went for dinner before a movie across the street which is very convenient and have done many times. I have had problems before with their burning their whole grilled fish which when properly grilled can be amazing. I specifically told this to the waiter when I ordered and ask them to fillet it. The fish skin was burned and fish was dry as a result. There were many bones in the fish. The brownie desert sounded good. It came out steamy hot and hard to eat. This experience is unfortunate as we like a low key option locally and love Greek food. We were very disappointed and will not return unless they get their act together! We have spoken to a manager in the past but it seems that nothing has changed! Maybe this review will!

We were looking for a place to have dinner in the area and I had been to MP Taverna previously and was happy to go there again. Went with my husband and 3 y.o. son and we all enjoyed the food (the octopus meze is fantastic). Our waiter (Georgio I believe was his name) was so sweet and very patient with my son and was great at giving us our space but still checked in on us.

I like to sit at the bar but the restaurant definitely needs more bartenders ! When we there, there was only one person working at the bar and she had to do the entire restaurant in addition to the bar.

The meal started out well, and the food was good. Unfortunately, the restaurant became busy when we were ready to order coffee and dessert. After waiting a 1/2 hour to order, we gave up and just asked for the check. Sad that a pleasant meal was spoiled by lack of attention at the end.

Liquor value was poor value. My guest and I ordered scotch and paid $16. It was barely 4 sips. I mentioned it to the waiter and asked that he tell maitre d’. The response was that it was a measured pour. Food was good but it was unfortunate that they were not communicative. I don't mind paying $16 for a drink but give value.

The mediterranean dips and brussel sprouts are excellent. branzino & spinach also quite good. The service was inattentive for a quiet night--it took forever to track the waiter down for our check. Was shocked at the price of a cup of mint tea--$5.00.

On a Sunday night for dinner, the service was very poor even though there were not many diners. They brought us the entrees immediately, before the wine and appetizers. That made me feel they were “pre-cooked” which was confirmed after we sent them back and ate them later. The meatballs appetizers were “old.” They confused what we ordered. Many apologies from the waitress, but continued mistake after mistake. Will not be retuning. There are much better restaurants in the area.

We are regulars at this very friendly Greek place where the fish is exceptionally fresh and very well prepared. We were four people, everybody ordered different dishes and all was delicious: the calamari dish deserves being mentioned, it is the best in the area. Only problem: my decaf coffee was not decaf and I ended up sitting in bed reading until sunrise!
