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!

Place is a hidden gem, not very appealing from the outside but inside has a great ambiance and is very clean. Really good service, the staff made some great recommendations and the food was delicious. Highly recommend finding out for yourself. We will be going back for sure

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.

We ate outside. Being right on Broadway adds a little noise when traffic flows. Inside wasn't very crowded and probably would have been a better dining experience. In the beginning, I felt the waiter was rushing us, but the service was good and attentive. The food was generally very good, but I feel that the prices were too high. We had 3 spreads (taramosalata, tzaziki, skordalia)...all had great flavor, but the tzaziki was watery. The keftedes were good, too. The stifado tasted great, but the serving size was smaller per $ than what we've had at other Greek restaurants. The Lavraki was fresh and fairly well deboned, but again, seemd pricey. All the desserts come with ice cream - that is overkill for Rice Pudding and galaktoboureko. Both were good, but the rice pudding was thin. The drinks were excellent (pomegranate and cucumber martinis).

Jessica did an outstanding job making us feel welcomed with her jovial attitude and smile! Maria was also fantastic! She was always on-point whenever we needed refills, or clean up a bit of mess. The cuisine was stupendous! This is our 2nd time at Taverna Mykonos and it gets better each time. Thank you all for making Father's Day extra special!

We came for lunch expecting more for a restaurant that priced at this level. We were disappointed with the spread we ordered. It was a potato/almond mash that was accompanied by pita wedges. The spread was rather bland. The appetizer was a special for the day consisting of 4 prawns and spinach with a sweet dressing. Three of the four prawns were overcooked and the dressing was overly sweet to offset the slight bitterness the spinach. Next, we ordered two entrees. The first entree of bass atop risotto was beautiful in taste and presentation until I cut through the fish to find the skin still attached. It should have been removed when topping risotto. The moussaka entree had only a thin layer of béchamel so that was a little disappointing and the flavor of cinnamon was a little too much for our last. The dessert was a strawberry-chocolate cake that was a nice end to a somewhat ok lunch. I don't know if I would come back for the price level/experience.

We had a poor experience at the restaurant last night. The service was terrible, which included a very inexperienced waiter who was not attentive, meals that took a long time coming out of the kitchen and a bus person, who when asked to pack up 2 dinners to take home proceeded to put the dirty silverware from the other people at our table, onto the plates of food we wanted to take home. Yuck! While the food was okay and apologies were made, including dessert that was brought to the table, it left us questioning whether we would ever want to come back.

Food was overall good, but inconsistent. Grilled octopus stole the show for the appetizers, but the beet salad was bland as dust. Greek salad had the best feta we’ve ever tasted. At start our two young kids appreciated the warm bread with olive oil/butter, which the waitstaff readily replenished.

As far as timing - the mains took far too long (50min?). Sea bass and chicken souvlaki were on point, but the shrimp dish was oddly flavored. Chicken nuggets and French fries were a hit.

So, overall, count on an average of 1/3 dishes to be lackluster, while the others will shine.

Service and ambiance were lovely once they turned down the base to the latest techno beat (?).

Considering that we can’t get out to NYC and our standards are far too high, this wasn’t bad - and we may consider returning for lunch. Not sure about a proper dinner though.

I’ve been eating at this place for awhile and everything is always outstanding but this time service was very poor!
It was my husband’s birthday so we went there because it’s his favorite restaurant but the waiter didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert he just brought us the check! I was very disappointed
