We were seated in a booth by the bar, so it was noisy and crowded with people waiting for tables. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Just make sure you ask to be seated elsewhere if you are seated by the bar.

Waiter was nice.
Tomatoes in salad weren’t fresh. Asked for extra feta cheese, took way too long to get them.
Certain aspects of the service was slow.
We like MP and will come back but honestly it was disappointing this time around. Our check was approx 170.

MP Taverna is consistently excellent. Service is warm and professional. The Mediterranean cuisine is healthy, fresh and inventive. The simply grilled options make it easy to eat healthy even if others indulge. Grilled octopus is great, meatballs are superb and the beet salad is wonderful.

Went during restaurant week on Long Island for pre set menu and cost. The food was good but portions were more like a tasting menu than a meal. Salmon came with literally one brussel sprout and it was only about 1 oz. The walnut cake was a mini muffin.

I Was extremely disappointed with the Restaurant Week dinner. They served a large bowl but with three spoonfuls of soup in it, and pasta with no crabmeat and three mini shrimp.My cocktail was good, but then again, it was from the "regular" menu and cost $15.00. Dinner cost $28.99. Definitely not worth the money.

We have been to MP Taverna many times and have recently noticed a decline in the food, service and whole dining experience. Also, they seem to raise their prices constantly. At our last dining experience, the "crispy" brussel sprouts were burned beyond recognition. Our waiter, who was very nice, was clearly overwhelmed, and the diners near us were complaining as well. Not sure we will go back in the near future.

The food was delicious and the service was attentive. My husband had the lamb shank special and was falling off the bone with great taste. I had grilled shrimp, which were so moist and flavorful, and a tasty bulgur salad with bits of pistachios, cucumbers, onions, and dried apricots.

I looked forward to eating there with anticipation. The octopus appetizer was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately that’s where the excellence stopped. For an entree, I had the Branzino stuffed with rice, feta cheese and spinach. The entire plate looked like a gelatinous glob. While the fish was fresh, it, along with the rice and feta, was soaked in butter and not edible. My poor score for the service was as a result of the waiter not even asking why most of my plate was uneaten. I may give this restaurant another chance, but doubtful.

We have been to MP Tavern many time but this time the food was not that great. The service was excellent. We had the two meatballs which were average. The octopus was very good as was the lamb sausage. I had the lamb chops which were overcooked, the spinach was boring. My husband had the chicken which he said was average. I was disappointed.

Once the food was served, the waiter never checked to see how everything was. I ordered a whole grilled fish. He brought me a fish that was filleted. He told me that it would take 20 minuets to get me another fish so I kept the fish he brought out. Very small and tasteless.
I ordered the grilled fruit for dessert. I asked that they leave off the black pepper. They did not. Once served , we did not see the waiter until we got the check.
My friend did not feel well and we needed ice. I asked a different waiter for ice and told him my friend is not well. He brought ice but did not tell our waiter that we had a problem.
Our third and last time in this restaurant.

Recommended by a friend. Sat on outside rooftop which was lovely. Service was slow, asked for bread 3 Times, first drink was served after meal came. Waited over 10 minutes for coffee after dinner. Brussels sprout appetizer was very good. Highly recommend. Entrées were grilled shrimp and shrimp risotto. The shrimp and the shrimp risotto had a very strong shrimp/fishy taste. Overall, if you’re looking for nice ambience and don’t really care about the food, I would recommend. With the meal for two with one drink and no dessert at $100 including tip, I think there’s better places to go.

If you go early on a week night, it is quiet and comfortable to dine in a booth. Later on, it gets noisy and crowded for we always go early. We had Chicken and Salmon and split a MP salad which was plentiful and delicious.

From the moment we walked in we knew we should have turned around and walked out. The hostess didn’t have a table for us and then separated a larger table in the back corner where we were squeezed in. We were pretty much part of the party next to us we were so close. When we finally were acknowledged and asked for our order, 2 tables that sat after us were already on apps. We both ordered the soup special which was supposed to be yellow lentil soup. It was not yellow lentil soup. It might as well been gazpacho since it was cold and unidentifiable. My wife’s food was “burnt” branzino and I had the “under-cooked” hanger steak with “burnt” lamb sausage. Oh and I also had a side of oil soaked smash fries. Needless to say it was our first and last time here.

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.
