We loved our dinner at Taverna Mykonos. We shared the grilled octopus appetizer and I had the sea bass plaki and my husband had the scallop special. The food is always consistently delicious. :)

Food was great, service was great, but food took a while to be brought to the deliver. The food was worth the wait, but it was a long wait.

My wife and I had a wonderful meal. Jessica was an outstanding server. It was our first visit and we enjoyed it very much. I did not appreciate the valet parking in a small lot.

Absolutely Flawless. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was spectacular. My compliments to the Chef and the Owner.

Fried Calamari cooked to perfection. Lightly buttered and melted in my mouth. Sauce was just enough spice for balance.

Zucchini & Eggplant Chips were sliced thin and crispy. Lightly seasoned with Tzatziki sauce that smooth and creamy.

Taramosalata Spread was phenomenal. The ingredients were perfectly balanced.

Soft Shell Crab was cooked incredibly well and was a taste sensation. Potatoes were soft with a roasted exterior and seasoned perfectly to compliment the main protein.

Service was friendly, attentive, and helpful. Decor was well appointed. Parking was convenient.

Overall, this Chef and Owner know precisely what it takes to create spectacular food and create a lifelong customer. I’ve already recommended the restaurant 3x to friends and colleagues today and will continue to do so.

Highly recommended.

Had a fabulous meal at Mykonos last night for our anniversary! Had two special appetizers which were very good- shrimp skewers with pineapple and grilled eggplant with tomatoes and feta. My husband had the sole with crabmeat and I ordered the lobster tail and scallop special which was a bit on the pricey side but was amazing and glad I splurged by going with it! Drinks and dessert were very good also! Would definitely return!

Wonderful evening. Extremely friendly servers and wait staff. Octopus was spectacular - tender and delicious. Delicious sea bass and bronzino. We were there with a boisterous toddler and all our servers were very accommodating. Highly recommended. We will be back and save room for dessert next time!

We had good quality double lamb chops with and without a special lobster tail (extra $20), ouzo a Greek salad and baklava and a Greek coffee..

I have thought Taverna Mykonos had excellent food in 2 prior occasions, but I found the lamb and salad under seasoned- not just salt but other spices like oregano.

The baklava was 4 small rolled pieces that tasted like they came from a grocery store with ice cream and chocolate sauce . For the price, 2 large thick triangles made inside would have been more appropriate.

The outdoor seating is surrounded by plastic on the evening we dined though the weather was mild.

The service was good though the coffee took much too long,

We have been going to Taverna Mykanos for years. The appetizers were great however, our main course was lacking in flavor. I had the Halibut special and was really hoping it was great but it was really lacking in flavor. My husband had the sole with crab meat which he had ordered in the past but he also said the flavor was lacking. Once our main course was delivered we never saw our server again. So between food quality and service we were pretty disappointed. We most likely will not return.

Excellent food, seasoned to perfection. Portions are ample and well presented. Wonderful and warm atmosphere as well as the service. Greek cuisine that will please many tastes. Lamb shank was superb and their famous grilled octopus is tender and perfectly seasoned. I plan to return and would recommend Mykonos to anyone with a taste for authentic Greek cuisine.

Great food. For appetizers, I recommend the grilled octopus and calamari. For main dish, I had the seabass - really delicious. My husband had the grilled salmon, also really good. Service was great, attentive. The owner came to our table. Not too packed. Nice decor. Valet parking also a big plus. Overall, good experience

From the delicious food to the excellent service - I highly recommend. I came here for lunch with my mom, it was our first time here, the manager and the staff could not have been more welcoming or attentive. I had the lamb souvlaki and my mom the moussaka, and both were delicious. When we left, my mom asked if she could take a piece of the bread for my dad as it was really good bread, and the waiter brought us a freshly baked batch along with some cookies to go for dad - what a wonderful thing to do. We will definitely be back!

Appetizers were amazing. We had mussels, octopus, and calamari. They we all like you were sitting on a seaport side taverna in Mykonos. I then had the soft shell crabs cooked to perfection. Will definitely go back, as a matter of fact we tried to go back the next day just for the appetizers but could not fit it into our schedule.
