Great food as always. I sat outside for dinner with a beautiful view and the weather was fantastic. As the sun set it got a little hard to see the food since the lighting is dim and only on the border of the patio. Our waiter didn't ask if we wanted drinks, didn't check in on us at all during the meal besides giving us desert menus and the dinner took a while to get out. Otherwise, the food runners and bus boys were fine and the food and outdoor seating really makes this a great dinner. Usually eating here is an all around 5 star experience.

Greek Paella! Who knew. I've been to MP Taverna several times, but this last visit was the best! Our waiter (Georgio) was great. We had a really nice bottle of Greek White wine - delicious and really well priced IMO. We had a variety of apps (Meatballs, Tszaziki, calamari, etc) and all were done well. I had the afore referenced Paella which was simply fantastic. Crave-worthy for me. I'm looking forward to going back, for what else ... Greek white wine & MP's Paella.

Food was excellent, service a bit slow. Had to request specials menu, for some reason, it was not given when we sat down. Took 15 minutes to find our waiter to pay him. All in all, a great dining experience. Some of the best salmon I've ever had.

Overpriced overdone grilled octopus. Very expensive unimpressive salad. Accommodating waitress offered to replace the octopus. We declined. No adjustment made to bill. We won't be back.

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.

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

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.
