The food was truly delicious and so was the service. You could truly tell that this was a family run business and you felt like you were treated like a member of it. Although I wanted the Red Sangria I was convinced to try the white. Good choice! Greek salad was great, loaded with anchovies, homemade lemon egg soup came with a surprise ingredient, chicken. I’ve never had better!
I could continue but I have a feeling anything you try here will be outstanding. I can’t wait to go back. Yum.

Excellent food, décor and service! We were assigned to the private room for our lunch. It holds about 10-13 people and is a very nice space. Excellent service and food! Portions are very generous. Total redesign of the inside and looks nothing like Crazy Greek, the former occupant. Give this restaurant a try! You won't be disappointed.

We came in with a party of eight on a Saturday night for a Birthday party. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the restaurant was and the quality of the food and service. Nearly everyone ordered something different, so we were able to sample the Moussaka, Kebabs, fish of day (Salmon), and their baked pasta dishes. Everyone was very happy with their meals and everything tasted fresh and homemade. Dessert was great too. Fair Warning: The pasta dishes are huge, so count on leftovers. The service was excellent and attentive throughout. The bar area looked nice and Happy Hour is until either 7:00 or 7:30 (can't remember for sure), so we definitely plan to go back for Happy Hour.

The bread and dipping oil is the best anywhere. My spaghetti with shrimp and feta was outstanding. My husband’s shish Kabob was delicious. Service always superb. A great place for a quiet dinner for 2 or a family celebration.

The calamari was the low-light of the meal, likely fried in oil temp that was too low. Strong oil flavor. Entrees were under-seasoned. Rockfish entree special was quite nice.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We were there on a Saturday around lunch time. The service was excellent. The waitress friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is available on line. My partner had the Hero and I had the stacked sandwich. Both were very good and clearly an ample amount of food. If you had the soup or salad for appetizer, the sandwich I had could easily have been shared. there was aa blackboard on the wall with their dinner specials.

We shared a desert and it was excellent.

I would recommend this place for lunch or yearly afternoon mean too anyone. The time of day we were there it was not busy at all. A great time to sit and enjoy our meal.

We will be back to try dinner.

Would go back again. Had a party of 6. Plenty of room to dine, decor is very modern & cozy too. Service was good Had traditional Greek menu & 3 specials. Combo plates were plenty for 2 or 3 to share with a added salad as s meal. Special cocktails were yummy. Bread was wsrm & good, with a very flavorful oil dipping sauce!
Seafood pasta was full of huge scallops,shrimp. The sauce was creamy with a light balance that didn’t over power the seafood. Portions were more than plentiful ! A pizza was ordered & crust was crunchy & great flavor. Will go back & .get pizza to go. All in All a great dining & would tell others to go. Great place for date nite!

we were one of two groups of friends dining at the taverna on a recent evening. service was good. good selection of typical greek fare. gluten free options would be nice. vegetarian gluten free diners who want more than a salad are challenged.

We were driving through Richmond on our way to Charlottesville and wanted to eat somewhere that was not a chain. The food was great, lovely building and easy to access from the interstate.
