We are always pleased with MP Tarvera. This time we went there specifically to enjoy outdoor dining on the roof deck. The food was outstanding, as always. We did encounter a problem because the server neglected to inform one person that the dish he ordered was very spicy. When the manager realized that there was a problem, he quickly remedied it by providing a new portion that was perfect. The staff went above and beyond to assure that everything was perfect. Mistakes happen. When staff is as concerned and helpful as they are at MP Taverna, you know you have a winner.

Great neighborhood place! Great bartenders you can order appetizers at the bar while you wait
for your table which helps because you will wait about 1/2 hour past your reservation!

Table of 4, outside. Seated on time, water & bread served, drinks and then came a downpour. Everyone rushed inside. The upstairs was empty so everyone sat. Apps & meals came out hot and delicious.
Staff was amazing, they didn't miss a beat. Dinner was great.

MP wipes the floor with most Greek Tavernas. Food was excellent & service was superb. The seats in the booths were very uncomfortable so was a little surprised at that. It is a fine place and it is a really good place.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on June 28, 2017

Good simple food with a Greek twist. We especially liked the grilled fish selections. One of our party had the grilled sea bass and one had the grilled shrimp and we were happy with both dishes. The Greek paella was good, but spicy. Very nice outdoor roof top area with nice background music when its a nice day or evening. Sangria was excellent. Service was appropriately attentive and food arrived in a good amount of time.

Food was quite good, but no restaurant that wants to be in the "fine dining" category should take your used silverware from the appetizer plates and place it back down on the table for the next course -- especially when it's on the less-than-sanitary outdoor tables.
That said, this is a quality spot and theupstairs outdoor patio is definitely an attraction.

Honored 7:30PM reservation, served appetizer in reasonable amount of time waited until 9:15PM for main course. Spoke to server who brushed us off with an attitude stating that the kitchen was busy. Complained to Owner who said he was sorry and offered us an appetizer for our next visit which stated that if was only to be honored Sunday through Thursday.
However as a good gesture he offered desert, no coffee. Food is Good, Service is bad and attitude of staff even worse.
Incidentally, this was not the first visit to this restaurant and we had a similar incident on anther visit. First visit was excellent, the nest two were horrible

wonderful waiter from Cyprus, wonderful greek food with some foods we were not familiar with but loved!- the bulgar salad especially.
sat outside on rooftop which was special as there haven't been too many nights where the weather permitted- and there were no bugs!

Second time eating here. First time was delicious winter 2017, this time was not good. My dish had frozen thawed shrimp, when I'm paying $26 for pasta with grilled shrimp I want fresh! Hubby's dish too same issue. Grandmas meatball appetizer was so over fried like rocks!!! Not worth the money!

Everything was pretty good. The lemon chicken is not as good as it used to be, they now serve it on a regular plate rather than a hot iron griddle. Maybe that's why the chicken doesn't get that nice crispy coating on it anymore. Also it was a little annoying as we made our reservation through open table but they marked us as canceling the reservation, when I call them, they told me to make another reservation which what they would credit to our OpenTable account. But then they marked it as a no show. Little frustrating.

nice dinner. we were greeted warmly. seated promptly. our server came promptly and discussed the daily specials, took our drink order. MP Tavenra is a greek style restaurant, with really authentic dishes. the food came promptly, starting with a trio of dips with veggies and pita, which were excellent. two of our diners were unhappy with their dinners, and the waiter and manager could not have been nicer. They were accommodated. The greek style chicken in garlic dill sauce was excellent. perfectly seasoned and cooked. The stuffed bronzino was also excellent. One of our diners enjoyed the beet salad with Salmon, though thought that the portion and ingredients were different than previously had. If you like greek food, and want more than the gyros you get at American Greek restaurants...try MP.

MP Taverna sat us when we got there. We requested a table upstairs and were sat upstairs. We were a party of 4. We were sat at a small table in the center of the room. The table was very small. It was almost like just put there. It would have been fine for two people but NOT 4. We spoke with our waiter (with an English accent) and he said the table next to us was getting up and we could be moved. He took our drink order and brought the drinks while we waited for them to leave-they had paid the bill and were saying their goodbyes. He asked if we wanted to place our app order- he said he would not bring them our until we had moved. We had the nicest dinner- he was great- food amazing as usual. This wasnt the first time we or the other couple were there. Love MP Taverna and we will return again and again.

this time i tried the lemon chicken -- a very basic dish that was prepared better than usual. crispy, with a perfect sauce. the beet salad had brussel sprouts, some fennel, and a touch of feta cheese, making for a perfect salad. ice cream was good ending, with tahini and walnut flavors.
