We made early reservations and when we got there it wasn't busy so we were able to get a table outside. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was delicious. Love the Grilled Bronzini and Greek Paella. The smashed fries are delicious as well. Always enjoy my meal here.

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!

Although the entree was delicious the appetizers need work. The keftedes were burnt as was the pita bread; moreover the Kalamari had way too much pepper.

Service was not very good, compared to many of the other higher end restaurants in the same area. The food was also hit and miss, the dips and grilled octopus and salad were good, we also ordered the dumpling entree as a shared appetizer which was also delicious but the actual entrees were mediocre. We had to re-pour our own bottle of wine, not once did anyone come to check on us except to try and take our plates. When the waiter came to take our order for dessert, he took 1 order and as 2 people were discussing getting an additional item, he just walked away with the menus. Then we see a mandatory 20% service charge on our check. I don’t mind pouring my own wine and having lower service expectations but then don’t market the business as a high end restaurant. I will not be going back.

We sat on the rooftop and started with the grilled octopus, it was very tender, a generous portion and full of flavor. It laid of bed of chick peas, celery, lemon and olive oil. I had the mp salad with a big piece of grilled salmon on top. The salmon was Cooked to my liking of medium inside and was very moist. The outside was charred a bit more than I would have liked but it was still very good and I would order it again. Service was attentive and we did not feel rushed. Great experience and flavorful food.

The bread was stale and the food was ok; overall disappointing for the price. It was quiet, which was great as far as I was concerned. Parking was fine since it was a quiet night, but is often tough in Roslyn. The service was really good.

I really enjoy dining at MP Taverna in Roslyn - I've never had a meal there that I didn't enjoy! I decided to take my mom and dad for Mother's Day and was disappointed by the service. I understand it was Mother's Day, and that things get very busy, but the employees (esp. at the front desk) seemed to be stressed/agitated and it didn't leave a great impression on my parents. At the table, we had to ask several times for things that were forgotten. The meals were delicious, as always, though. Maybe the restaurant was short-staffed; I'm not sure. Again, not really a complaint but just some feedback. I wouldn't want an experience like that to ruin someone's first image of MP Taverna!
