Food was good not super hot when it was brought out. Lighting way too bright for evening dining. A candle on each table would be nice. The cocktails are served not full there were four of us and none of us got a full cocktail.

One of the local places we frequent, typically with fresh, consistent food preparation. Not great this time due to overcooked salmon and undercooked risotto, but still a had a nice evening.

Pilar provided fantastic service. The Caesar salad and Mediterranean pizza combo was perfect, and even though the drinks were a bit slow to arrive, she kept us updated as we waited. We had a wonderful time and plan to visits again next time we are in Flagstaff.

From the moment our server, Pilar, came over it was all smiles and great food! Minor hiccups were immediately remedied. Food- bacon-wrapped dates, fried calamari, white pizza, and mushroom and bacon burger- deeeelicious!! We will be back!

Great meal. The appetizers looked so good that we decided to start with them - we ended up making a meal of appetizers (bacon dates, Spanakopita and Dolmades and Greek salad. The wine list is a bit narrow but the wines we had were good. I had the Sparkling Rose which was very refreshing with the meal. The only downside is the noise - with all the hard surfaces, it was quite noisy.

Beautiful restaurant, we had great service. Our only complaint, the food was served Luke warm.
The manager came around asking how everything was, we shared our experience and he said sorry and that they would work on getting the food out quicker.

We had an enjoyable meal: nicely varied menu, good food, large portions, good selection of drinks. Service was upbeat, friendly and helpful. I appreciated that the tables are spaced far enough apart to feel a little more safe eating indoors. My only issue was that it was quite noisy, but that’s to be expected in a busy restaurant on a Saturday evening. Overall a good experience and would definitely eat there again!

Food was very good, particularly the cauliflower small plate. Their falafel was the best I've had anywhere and the side salad was so perfect and fresh. Would go again if I lived there.

We had a smattering of several menu items (all of which were good), but we have to give a special round of applause to the Rack of New Zealand Lamb — best lamb we’ve had in as many years as we can remember — and a shout out to the (Almond) Chocolate Torte — fantastic taste and texture and worth every calorie!

Great little find in Flagstaff. Tucked in a small mall off the beaten crack. Great food...large portions. The main entrees come with Greek salad on the plate so dont order a side salad before your meal. Great wine list. Wait staff, Jeff, was awesome. Great presentation. The rack of lamb was outstanding....the Prime Rib of lamb, lemon potatoes best I've had, tzatziki was perfect too!!!

All in all, we enjoyed our visit to Taverna, with the only exception being my wife had ordered the grilled chicken with pasta and expected it would be a 'slab' of grilled chicken on a bed of pasta. When the dish arrived she was surprised that it consisted of chopped chicken mixed with pasta. She said something to the manager and he offered to bring her whatever she wanted. She re-ordered a different dish and was very pleased with whatever was served.
The manager could not have been more attentive to our needs!
We will be back soon!

We picked this restaurant because it had some really good reviews in Flagstaff and was near our hotel. We had no idea it was going to be one of the most delicious food experiences my daughter and I have ever enjoyed. The Slovakian was out of this world. Chicken and beef were flavorful, tender, and the vegetables were delightfully fresh. Would definitely recommend!

Is this a bar or restaurant? Because it’s both I would recommend take out. I had a terrible experience due to the terrible furniture, tables warped, and when I reached for my wallet to pay the bill the chair I was sitting in collapsed, completely broke, I am not a large person, I fell to the concrete floor bruised my shoulder knee and elbow.
I expected our meal would be compet, instead I got a free desert after such an embarrassing and potentially dangerous fall.
