Our waitress Eleni made our mother’s day meal great! She was very very friendly and attentive and everything came out wonderful from food to drinks. Only thing I would say is entrees and sides didn’t come out together and we had to ask for sides a few times, but it was busy so we understood. We will be back !

I was pleasantly surprised by this new gem. Although a bit loud, the place was redone beautifully and I appreciated all the special touches added. Although the menu was not authentic greek food- it was good. Everything was fresh, delivered hot to the table and staff was very attentive. It was a great meal with an added bonus of a beautiful place. And the hostess came over and asked how everything was. Again- details. Great experience.

Took my wife to Oniro Taverna for Mother’s Day brunch. First impression was nice Ambiance and staff was pleasant. We were seated in the center of the restaurant. My wife asked for a booth but was told they were reserved only to see other people ask to be moved and they were granted. My wife ordered the Yellow Fin Tuna off of the dinner menu which she enjoyed. Food came out sparatically. First came the Baklava Waffles and the Calamari which were both good. Then plates came one at a time in no particular order. I ordered the sliders that my wife and son tried. They tasted like salty over priced meatballs. I would never order those again. The Spanki salad was ok, but I could get the same salad anywhere else for half the price. What topped it off was I had to ask where my 10 year old daughter pasta dish was. She didn’t receive it until everyone was done eating. It’s a pasta dish for crying out loud. Service was good otherwise. Overall it was worth the $175 I spent.

It seems to keep falling short. Either the service is not there or the food shows up cold or disappointing.
The restaurant is great potential, but they keep tripping over themselves. Two out of three visits turned out to be a turnoff.

Beautiful restaurant with ambiance. Lighting, environment, and decor are beautiful. Drinks are not flowing. Hummus w pita corners seemed w water, salads are fresh, diners served to temperature. Only feedback is bring drinks w dinner. Waitstaff friendly, valet efficient. Surprised by amount of diners at 8pm on a Friday.

Celiacs beware; although they indicate gluten-free options on their menu the chef opted to put pita bread on my tuna tartare plate. You have to be really careful in this restaurant as they obviously don’t understand the consequences of gluten contamination.

Also, 2 orders of black sea bass had to be returned as it did not taste fresh.

However, restaurant was accommodating after these problems.

We had the holiday Easter meal, the food was good however the portions were very small. They served a salad family style however it was enough for two people not for four. I also felt that two small pastries for 4 people was not adequate.

Madelyn was our server and she was a delight. She truly wanted to please her customers and she did. She made great suggestions, very attentive and would ask to b seated at her table in the future. The Greek salad was fresh and delicious, calamari was delicious and the Red Snapper great portion, flavor and presentation. Definitely going back. Oh and they honor your reservation!

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was delicious but portions were a little small. We had the salmon tartare and octopus to start. For entrees we had the tuna steak, branzino, and truffle potatoes as a side. All the plates were very plated well. The fish was very fresh and satisfying. The place was gorgeous. Very nice lighting and ambiance. However, there is only a one bathroom on the main floor that accommodates one person at a time. The other bathrooms are down a flight of stairs. The stairwell was very dimly lit. Furthermore, the service was very slow. The waiters were nice and accommodating when they were around but it was difficult to get their attention and there were long waiting periods in between courses and drinks.

The food is wonderful. Fish was excellent. Our server did everything possible to make evening very nice, but it took almost an hour for our main dishes to come out. Server was very apologetic but manager seemed less concerned and dismissive of the issue.

Will go back due to server and food. They could use more staff.

Oniro is a a beautiful restaurant serving Greek specialties. It is modern and beautifully decorated. That said it is very large and has many many tables, and the noise is deafening. Unfortunately this ruined our experience, as we were with another couple and could not hear a word they were saying. It was an effort to just speak. The food was exceptionally good we all had the one of the grilled fish specialties.. they were moist fresh and delicious. Baklava was amazing. Unfortunately we won’t be back because of the sound level.
