Conveniently located in the town of Roslyn. The food here is solid but not spectacular.
They have a couple of salads that my vegan wife likes. I order the fish.

Our fourth visit here. Always enjoy MP Taverna; way above local bar or pub, given it's inventive Greek Tavern menu. Great burgers, lamb burgers as well as wonderful fish. Nice selection of appetizers. In warm weather , the roof top deck is great.

Went for dinner with another couple. Waited at the bar about 10 minutes for our 7:30 reservation. Noisy bar area. Glad we were seated a bit away from that area so we could talk at the table. Outstanding food! Ordered dip sampler to share as appetizer - good but ordinary. For main course, two of us ordered the stuffed sole with feta and spinach and it was delicious. Actually stopped the conversation to comment how good it was! Lemon chicken was good but not quite as unusual as the stuffed sole. The smashed potatoes it came with were heavenly. Fourth person ordered the Greek paella - another top dish. One small glitch when ordering coffee - they were out of coffee filters??? Ended up ordering cappuccinos rather than wait for them to get new filters; to their credit, they didn't charge for them. All in all, a great place to go with friends and enjoy memorable food.

Got a reservation on a Saturday night for two. Cool, hip atmosphere, but was a little loud. Not what I expected from a high-end Greek restaurant. I was thinking like some of the good Greek places in the city such as Nerai or Estiatorio Milos, there would be a fresh seafood bar to choose your fresh selections from. There was a small special menu in addition to the everyday menu. All wines started at $50 a bottle on up, and most of the entrees were over $25. Even the side dishes were anywhere from $11 to $17 for a side dish. I got a pasta with tomato sauce, feta and chicken and it was $25 (the portion was large, a plus) and my boyfriend got a beef souvlaki, which was $20, but includes French fries. There was no choice of lamb for the soulvaki, which we thought was unusual since its a Greek restaurant. The service was good and hostess nice, but souvlaki came without tzatziki sauce, which should always come and then it took ten minutes to get some and by then the meat was cold. The menu choices were very interesting with a lot of fish on the menu, however we just thought the food was okay. At those prices, a meal should be better than okay. We eat out about three or four nights a week, and probably won't come back. They're just too many other choices with above-average food that are less expensive.

We were incredibly disappointed with MP Taverna. The service team seems incredibly inexperienced. Server couldn’t give information about items on the menu and the ingredients that were in the dishes. They almost dropped dishes as they were delivering our food and didnt know about the food, etc. For example, the runner called Lamb Risotto “Rice”. Seriously? Restaurant Week dishes were obviously smaller portions and dull in flavor. We did not expect to be so disappointed considering the owner of the restaurant.

A few friends and i went today for NYC Restaurant Week. The waiters were nice. Very attentive. One of us ordered the gnocchi. It wasn't stellar. The gnocchi was made w flour rather than potato which isn't unheard of. But the texture was very doughy leaving us to believe it wasn't cooked thoroughly. We were very nice. Not at all stuck-up critical. The waiter brought the dish back to the chef and he threw the loudest fit! I must add.. my friends and i sat at the furthest table away from the kitchen. It was pretty embarrassing for the waiters.

It's a shame that the chef's ego is getting in the way of being better as a cook. Ultimately, compromising the welfare of the employees and community. And btw, the waiter did take the gnocchi off the bill. We felt so bad for the waiters that we left a $30 tip to a $107 tab.

Worst night out in 8 years that I have lived in the area. No wonder it was only last minute reservation open. Hostess was a mess, very rude and seemed troubled that we arrived 15 minutes before our reservation. The bartender was slow, and the drinks were ridiculously overpriced, even for Roslyn. Now for the part that was really awful...the food and the service. My appetizer was cleared before I had finished it. Our main course arrived only 10 minutes after the appetizer. My husband and I felt rushed. Service was minimal at best. Had to beg waiter to get another drink. I would rather have eaten a Greek salad at Panera than wasting my time and money at this place.

Met my parents for an early dinner. The bar manager (not bartender) wouldn’t serve my dad a happy hr deal glass of wine because he would soon be sitting at a table. Finally offered him only one type of wine. We had to ask 3 times for a high chair and stood at the table waiting for it. It was 5pm and the place was empty. No reason we needed to ask that many times. Food is delicious and some of the staff are fantastic.

Very disappointed with the whole experience with the exception of our server ( Omar) and only our server.
It seemed as if the B team was running the place including the cooks. No bartender so everyone was playing bartender. The food was nothing special. Beer selection was limited and I don’t think fitting for M P’s menu. Dessert menu was interesting but traditional Greek deserts were boxy tasting, not fresh.
For a family group of 7 for Christmas Eve supper I don’t see us as returning anytime soon. Once again Omar was the best part of our dining experience and deserves kudos for making our evening tolerable. Thank you Omar

I've been to this restaurant many times but my recent visit was not good. I ordered salmon cooked through. It came with the top charred but underneath close to raw. I sent it back to have undercooked part cooked. It came back the same way. The spinach I ordered as a side was in a pool of oil. My dinner was hardly eaten. It would have been nice if the coffee we ordered was on the house. I'll think twice about going again.

The quality of the food came as a surprise to us as we’ve been here many times before. The $15 MP salad was just lettuce with very little of the other ingredients. The beef in the souvlaki was very fatty. Hopefully this was just a one time anomaly.
