Hair in food and unapologetic staff. The burger had no lettuce or condiments served with it. It was ridiculous for the price.

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 had a lovely dinner on the rooftop. Our waiter from Cyprus was very professional and pleasant. The food was excellent, and the prices very reasonable. MP Taverna is a much better place to enjoy a relaxing dinner than all the other high-end restaurants in town. We are definitely coming 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.

Always a great dinner hear. Inventive, greek tavern cuisine, with great seafood as well as meat dishes. Appetizers and soups are especially good. In the summer, they have a nice roof-top deck.

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!

a very nice place great food, clean, friendly ......"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Disappointing meal. I've been here 4 or 5 times. Progressively less impressed. Menu is boring, service is sub-par and place was relatively empty on a Friday night. Seems to be other more exciting places around town.

Pleasant, noise level acceptable-, the place was packed, and it was Saturday night during restaurant week. Good menu, nice presentations, would happily go back. And even though we lingered--arrived at 6 PM, left after 8:30PM, nobody rushed us, and the service was very good.

I was very disappointed with the service quality. Firstly the bartender took a very long time to make our drinks and process our credit card although there was no one else at the bar. Secondly what was much more disturbing was that my husband ordered salmon. I have eaten in the finest restaurants. And have never seen such a tiny piece of fish. It would literally take my husband three bites to finish. When I complained to the waiter he told me he isn’t the chef !! Really that is not an adequate answer. I asked to speak to the manager and waited 25 minutes and then I asked the waiter again and he said she was on the phone. She never even came over to the table We decided it was taking too long so I told him to take it back and my husband ordered something else. What struck me weird was that the manager never came over to apologize or offer anything to make us feel like she even cared. Considering my daughter manages a restaurant and I have experience with this I thought it to be very rude!!! I honestly would think twice about going back. Not a fan !!

Food was fresh and tasty. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Value wasn’t the greatest. $16 for a standard Greek salad - lettuce, feta, tomatoes, onions. While it was presented nicely it wasn’t anything more than what you would but at you’re local deli.

Grilled Branzino was recommended from the waitress and spot on.

We drove a bit to try it and and while it was good it’s probably not worth a drive just to go there since there are other Greek restaurants just as good that are nearby. If I happen to be in the area again then I would go back.
