Taverna Mykonos Ratings and Reviews
Great Experience!!! I went with my husband for lunch and it was incredible. We had a great time. We started off with grilled octopus and the silage spreads. We ordered a bottle of Greek wine which the waiter recommended and it went delicious with the food. My husband had this enormous Lamb Sandwich which was AMAZING. So DELICUOUS!! and with hand cut fries. I had the lunch box special which came with a little salad and soup and a piece of chocolate chip baklava. I can't wait to go back!
DELICIOUS!!!! Outstanding from start to finish!!!! From the time we walked in we felt completely welcome and taken care of!! Our waiter Gabriel was outstanding and took care of every need. We are very picky eaters and this place has the BEST FOOD I have ever had in a restaurant. I felt satisfied and never bloated after this restaurant. They are plenty of gluten free options and chocolate heaven dessert which is also gluten free and delicious. The Dirty Greek with kalamata olive juice was the best I ever had. YUM!!!
We loved it friendly owner and waitress. Great food and loved the Greek Salad ( I’m a salad girl) the octopus,mussels , spanicopita was-yummy the spreads. My daughter had salmon and of course I tasted it loved that too. We all said we can’t order All we want to taste so we’ll be back again. It’s up there on our list of family dinners. Treat yourself. ☝️
We love eating here when we are in that area we live about 35 minutes away. The restaurant is nice and service was great. Food was good. My sole was a bit dry and the eggplant dip was my favorite but now I can't eat it because they mix yogurt in it and I am dairy free. Will go again.
I have been to this restaurant several times. This is the first time I have to say I was very disappointed! The food was not as fresh & the service was sloppy at best. Lazy waiters who reach across tables & spill food & are unattentive in a not so busy restaurant is not good.
I’m not sure if I will be going back in the near future.
OUTSTANDING!!!!....WOW.....What are great restaurant !!! This is what a Greek restaurant should be. The place look so cool and I feel like I am in a hopping Greek Island. The cocktails are the best i have ever had. The food is AMAZING!!!. OMG...I ordered one honey saganaki and then ordered 2 more because it was so tasty. This is the BEST OCTOPUS i have ever had. Better than GREECE. I am coming back Tuesday for Lunch!!
We always enjoy dining at Taverna Mykonos since the food, service and ambiance is usually first rate. But this last time there was a large family dinner at the front of the restaurant. Normally that would be fine, but the parents let the little children run all over the place, shouting. At the very minimum, the restaurant should have insisted that the parents better controlled their children. This wrecked the ambiance for us that night.
Took a chance on this spot this past Saturday, mainly because they had a vegetarian/vegan friendly menu. The meat eaters and vegans of our group were all thoroughly impressed with the knowledgeable and friendly wait staff, cocktails and food. I highly recommend and we will definitely return!
Five of our family met for a very pleasant lunch at Taverna Mykonos.
The interior of the restaurant is cool and white. Classy but not excessive, all in good taste.
We had a large round table in a semi-private nook.
We started off with some spreads, a threesome under the heading of "silogi" We chose Taramosalata, Melitzanosalata and Tzatziki. All three were mild and understated but pleasant versions, accompanied by a basket of crusty, rustic bread and wedges of pita.
We also shared a plate of Octopus: "sushi-quality Mediterranean grilled octopus, capers, red onions, red wine vinegar extra virgin olive oil" This dish outshone the spreads and I craved more.
I'd gone in thinking I that for my main course, I'd have either the beef stifado or lamb shank, but when we were presented with a Specials Menu, I immediately saw that Soft Shelled Crabs were offered. That was irresistible, and I ordered that. I had no regrets.
My wife had a simple, very large salmon filet, my sister a Chicken Souvlaki (she said it was all right, but she was disappointed that there were no vegetables, and furthermore, the accompanying pilaf was not very good.) Niece had a neat and compact Moussaka, and her husband enjoyed a dramatic Lamb Shank on the bone.
To drink, we selected a delightful, crisp Sauvignon Blanc, I think from California. It was so good, we ordered a second bottle.
For dessert, I chose Ekmek, a light custard atop a base of shredded filo. That was one of the best desserts I've had in a restaurant. I also had a decent espresso. Nephew had a warm chocolate cake and my sister chose rice pudding
Service was very competent and unobtrusive. The dinner menu offers more meat dishes. The food was generally excellent. If we lived in the area, I would definitely return.
Grilled octopus was the best I've ever had. Beet salad was tasty and a generous size. Chilean sea bass was cooked to perfection. Rice pudding was good, not great. Would definitely go back. Wish the location was in a cute little town instead of right on route 4/Broadway.
This is a great restaurant. The owner who greets you personally is friendly and charming. The food is nothing short of amazing--he goes out of his way to source the best ingredients, many from Greece. The service is also outstanding. A really wonderful experience.
