Four of us ordered Greek salad with grilled chicken.
2 people received chicken not cooked throughly through.
Other two orders where incorrect without chicken and we asked for condiments on side, that didn’t happen.
Then when bill came charged wrong price for adding chicken. Menu said $5.00, check had $7.00. We brought this to waitress attention and she said that’s what the manager did, I will just remove the chicken pricing on all of you. Ambience is nice, we sat outside.

My lambchop were over cooked, before the order, I specified medium rare, they gracefully replaced but than the meat had no seasoning, had only 2 potatoes wedges and a ton of green beans with pasta sauce thrown in. My boyfriend had the porkchop, both of us our chefs and was not impressed with our meals.
I also made reservations for an outside table and the table I chose wasn't available due to it was for a larger crowd, they was not Express when I made the reservation. The ambience was extraordinary. In my opinion their lunch options are a better choice.

Food is wonderful, especially the lamb chops. Love the complimentary pita and red pepper/feta spread as an appetizer. Restaurant is quite loud. I’ve been there a number of times, however service this time was not wonderful- waiter was not attentive and was surly.

Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. The only draw back was that it had rained pretty heavily that day and there were a lot of nats around our food. We weren’t even sitting outside, we had a table in the lobby of the building. Other than that it was an enjoyable experience

The octopus appetizer was delicious. I could eat that all day. My wife’s eggplant entree was good, the tomato and risotto that comes with it had lots of flavor. My linguine with seafood mix was not that good, that pasta was soaked and smothered in a buttery sauce that never blend in with the seafood.... it was like 2 separate items each with its own particular flavor in one plate. Felt like two side dishes. Service was superb from Isaac. We are at dusk outside and were bothered for a while with little flies humming around, maybe put citronella candles around ? I will go back and try other dishes. All around it was an “ok to good” neighborhood place.

Love the restaurant! Too bad the night we were there a large group was celebrating very loudly. The noise level was high, but I do get “party” time. The food and service is always on point and I brought several people with me who enjoyed the meal.. but not the noise. Maybe next time we will try eating outside!

This neighborhood restaurant is an "always reliable" place to go. The salads are great. The lamb chops are wonderful. The restaurant offers outside dining as well as inside dining. If there is a large crowd dining, the restaurant can become quite noisy.

Great place, excellent food and service. Try the wine from Santorini, truly fantastic. If it's not to hot, sit outside with a view of the lake. This is one of Boca's best and most scenic locations.

Rafina Greek Taverna is a local favorite. We are there at least 3 times / month. This time we brought friends (3 other couples) who had never been before, and they all loved it. We sat outside with a water view until the rain started, and they accommodated us with a similar table indoors, without a fuss.
We love arriving before 6 pm for their happy hour for drinks and small plates, which are a fantastic bargain.
The food, service, ambiance are always wonderful.

It took almost a hour and a half to get our entrees. They kept saying they had a problem in the kitchen. If that was the situation then don’t continue to seat people. When the food finally arrived one of the four entrees was ice cold, it must have been sitting and waiting for the others. The owner/ manager kept coming over and apologizing but that was not enough to make up for this horrible evening

Went to Rafina on a recommendation
from a newspaper article. The only glitch would be getting seated that night. Seems as though the restaurant was a bit backed up and people were waiting a bit past their reservation time. Other than that, the table service, food, atmosphere was top notch. We ordered the chicken kabob and spinach pie and both were simply fantastic. Our waiter was friendly and just the right amount of attentive. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves in the restaurant. They offer outdoor seating for when the weather is right. We drove 30 Minutes to Rafina and would gladly do it over and over to enjoy their food. Absolutely one of the best Greek meals I’ve had in a very long time.

We have added Rafina to our list of "go to" restaurants. I have never been unhappy with a meal, or dissatisfied with the service. The portions are substantial, the food is extremely tasty and has always been well-prepared. We have been there with other couples and they have unanimously said they will be back. The setting, overlooking the lake, is wonderful, even though it's not the Intracoastal or oceanfront setting to where many Floridians and tourists gravitate. The outdoor deck is open and breezy and the chairs and tables are comfortable. Finally, and this was a comment I made after our last visit, Rafina seems to hire the nicest and most attentive servers. So, lovely setting, great tasting food, large portions, and great service - as well as very affordable prices. What more can I say. Try it. You won't regret it.
