Good service. Generally the food was very good with one exception. We ordered the branzino which was very fishy tasting. The lamb chops were delicious, salads and apps were very good, gyro was also good.

We had a great experience at Taverna Evia. Our server, James, had a fun personality and was very attentive. We had the flaming saganaki (terrific), bread/dips (really good) & zucchini chips (disappointing-not as thin as we've had in other restaurants and a bit greasy) for appetizers. I had another appetizer for my dinner, shrimp in a tomato sauce with feta, which was delicious & had about 5 large shrimp. My husband was disappointed with his chicken kebobs, because the chicken was a bit fatty & grisly. (Surprising for chicken breast chunks.) Our friends enjoyed their dinners, one had the kebobs and the other had a penne pasta in a creamy feta sauce.
There was someone playing a guitar, which was nice, but the music was a bit loud for where we were seated.
The restaurant is very pretty and we would definitely go back.

As always, the food was very good. Two of us had the Greek specialties, and the third person in our party had the salmon. Accommodations were made due to food allergies. The ambiance was very nice, as was having the live music.

Service was terrible. When we sat down we got water right away, ordered wine by the glass and it took almost 15 minutes for the wine to get to the table. Then the waitress disappeared and didn’t come back to the table for 20 minutes. Appetizers came out immediately and we’re good but it took almost 30 to 40 minutes after the appetizers for the main course to come out. Guitar player was playing enjoyable music, however the sound volume made it such that you could not hold a conversation at the table. We have been there 3 or 4 times before this, and doubt that we will ever go back

Three of us dined. Three different orders: Lamb chops, salmon, moussaka. All were excellent. The wait staff was very attentive. We celebrated a birthday while there'
They brought a dessert with a candle and sang "Happy Birthday." The only "kinda problem" was music began about a half-hour into our dining. The musician was located very close to our table. Had we known we would have asked for another table as one of us has a hearing problem.

I was very disappointed with the menu and in the end the food. Almost all Greek restaurants I frequent bring pita and hummus to the table complementary. Here they charge $15 for a basket (no refills). The menu was large but explained what some of the dishes are poorly. The Spinach Pie was sub-standard, the gyro's were only so-so. Service was good but we did need to ask twice to get tea refills. Would not go back.

Been here many times. Bought new friends here for the first time. Restaurant was empty. There was a private party in private room. Had to wait a while for someone to come to take drink order. Waitress did not know Retzina wine???? We ordered appetizers and were then told we could not get zucchini chips because fryer was not working. This is a restaurant. How could fryer not be working. So for dinner we could not get lemon potatoes for same reason. Was very disappointed. Have to say this is first time I have come on a Tuesday night. Usually dine here on Friday or Saturday night. Huge difference in service and ambiance. Won’t return if not a Friday or Saturday.

Our server made our experience a bit awkward. Just a lot of awkward silence. Next time we go, we’ll ask for James who was an amazing server for other patrons.
The bartender was engaged in an inappropriately loud conversation with two other patrons (F- that guy, F this F that); and kept messing with her hair. Thanks but no thanks.
We may go back but it won’t be right away.

Food was excellent. Waitress was fine. Kitchen was horrendous. Took over an hour and half for entree to be served. App came right away and then we sat. Table behind us left after app. Reason given was there was a large party. Regardless, the kitchen should not be functioning that the remaining customers should have to wait this long. Manager or owner never showed up to our table either. Makes one wonder if they then cared.

We have been to Taverna Evia several times since they opened but this time we went specifically to have the “Village Tour” as recommended by several people I know. The Village tour is a meal for two people that is a steal at $28/pp. The very attentive and friendly waitress first brought us tzatziki & keftedes (2 delicious large Greek meatballs) and a platter of pita and more tzatziki, then a large Greek salad. The entree platter to share was: lamb chops, chicken skewers, loukaniko (sausage) & gyro that’s sitting on lemon potatoes with a side of green beans and carrots. Finally, she brought a plate with 3 full size Greek desserts. Everything was delicious and there was enough food to take home another full meal for two. This was Saturday night so there was a guitar player playing acoustic soft rock music that was very nice. Highly recommend!

The first few times we were there they put humus and pita chips in the table. One of the people ordered lamb chops and they were raw. By the time he got them back everyone had finished eating. The music was very loud an could not talk.

It is always great dining experience here. Our server was attentive. Answered all our questions. Checked in on us frequently. Only complain this time was that I was out celebrating my birthday with my husband and daughter and he was never told. It’s okay. We ordered the village tour anyway so it came with dessert.

Food was okay. I asked for a dish that had shrimp and scallops, orzo, vegetables... I got a sea of orzo, 3 pieces of small shrimp and 2 of small scallops for $28. The margarita ordered ($12) was subpar- best to stick to beer and wine. Nice music and we were happy to meet with old friends that we haven't seen in a long time but not even the dessert helped - it was like something I would try to make at home not really know what to expect. Looking for another Greek restaurant.

Fantastic Mediterranean delacies; absolutely delicious fare. If you like lamb; the lamb shank is tender and falls off the bone. The shrimp appetizer; flaming melted cheese is awesome and vegetables fresh. Dessert; they were out of rice pudding, but the custard filled pastry was a great second best. Enjoy. A special thanks to Chris for seeing to a great meal for us. ENJOY 😉

Have eaten here many times. Nice new menu. The shrimp and scallops I was told tasted better than the other older choices. I had the filet kabob which is what I always order. Usually the fill in Veges , pepper mushroom and onion and tomatoes are recognizable as they usually are nice and crisp. This time is was pure mush , unrecognizable as any food item nor taste. The meat was perfect , otherwise I would have sent it back Rice was mushy and too wet. . The waitress was wonderful. Local Sorings college student who was very friendly and accommodating, and she said she had only been doing the job for a short time . Give her a raise!
We will come back but he manager needs to check the food at in the kitchen.
