Sat outside and it was quiet with a nice view. The food was pretty good, would give 4 stars for food.
If you do not mind a dirty looking restaurant, belly dancing on dining tables.... This is your place!
Oh, I forgot, stale bread, but it as replaced after complaining
The wine list is excellent. Lots of good Greek wines. Unfortunately, they were out of a wine we wanted, so we selected a different one, which was quite good. The lamb chops were awesome.
GOOD SERVICE EXCELLENT FOOD LOVED THE GRILLED OCTOPUS
Delicious food and great atmosphere
Even if you make a reservation you will wait! We waited for an hour and we had reservations.
But worth it . Kebabs are delicious.
The restaurant is absolutely filthy. Keep the bread in a bin NEXT to the garbage. Serve chickpea spread in porous unclean wooden bowls. Recommend a Tetanus shot before going.
Great food. Service was good. Waiter was courteous but seemed rushed and went thru things too fast.
There was a belly dancer that danced on the hour when we were there. Entertaining and was not continuous thru the meal which was good.
A little pricey but I guess you have to expect that due to the location.
All in all, it was a good experience.
Food is always good and authentic, service is very nice with smiling and courteous staff.
Fun, great good, friendly staff, good value for waterfront dining.
Awesome!! Everything was excellent.
Terrible service - 2 waiters who said it wasn’t actually their table but we’re doing us a big favour by taking our order.
Kale salad was tough , feta cheese was tasteless. Main course came before appetizers. No sharing plates were given even after asking.
I would not return to this restaurant.
The food is great and the location is very lively on a Saturday night with music and belly dancers. My only concern is the fact that the dancers dance in top of the tables and encourage patrons to dance with them and although I saw the staff wipe down tables after patrons eat; I didn’t see them wipe them down after they were danced on. Might want to wipe them down prior to setting them up.
I have long been a fan and patron of this Restaurant and have recommended it often. It is sadly one of the few places we have that offers a nice water view and is reasonably priced for generally good food.
Friends are visiting from Wisconsin so thought it the perfect place to meet at 5:30pm for an early dinner. I'd told them it's "mostly outdoors" and very casual. As I've been there many times, I know it can get noisy and rowdy but did NOT expect this at 5:30pm on a Saturday. I did expect some "after the beach" people and some people with kids having an "early dinner" and possibly some other "early birds". They seated is on a narrow catwalk next to a HUGE and very noisy party. I'm not objecting to the party -- great business for a slow time at the restaurant. And very nice people too. However -- it was so LOUD, we could not have a conversation. The restaurant should have TURNED AWAY other business at this time rather than accept Reservations when they put something like this in that space. Not only was it unpleasantly LOUD but the area we sat in was too narrow to have people sitting and waiters passing -- was constantly bumped into. We asked to move and were told there's "nothing we can do" even though we SAW other tables become available outside. The waiter was ineffective and the hostess was inexperienced. The best explanation I can offer is that in true "Big Fat Greek Wedding" style -- this place is family run with the waiters being the wayward nephews and the hostess being the daughter of the owner. No other explanation would be remotely plausible.
The food this time was not as good as usual either.
I was looking forward to a pleasant evening and now will have to find another Greek Restaurant to go do (easy enough in Broward County) and will go to the place next door (GG's) when entertaining and want a place with a view. Or even Le Tub up the street for a good burger.
Shame on the Taverna OPA people.
The hostess (young lady from Brazil) was 5 star - cheerful and very helpful in getting us a waterfront table.
Ate here a year ago and enjoyed it but this time -no.
Server started well but it went downhill fast.
I don't often give poor reviews and to be fair it was a beautiful start to a 3 day weekend so I think the place was not prepared to be full. Heard a comment about the inside being packed.
But with Open Table showing that a week early when I booked, they should do better.
Water, bread and wine came in reasonable time but after that long waits.
Never had the water refilled.
Server rarely came by
Entrée took 45 minutes after ordering and came out warm at best except for a thing or two fresh off the grill.
Need to stage the plate much better.
What sums it up is the server never asking how things were during nor at the end of the meal.
Lost the opportunity to sell desert or after dinner drink.
We had a great time and the food was really good. We arrived a little bit late for our reservation but the owner or manager George, took us under his wing and made sure we were taken well care of. Enjoyed all the traditional Greek appetizers, hearty service and quality food with friendly service. Yum.
Very noisy and requested music be lowered. Need to sit outside.
Great water views. Excellent service.
Second time here; love the energy & authentic Greek offerings, but waitstaff could use some courses in customer friendliness. No one even smiled except the hostess who seated us outside. There are other places for Greek food—may try them next time.
Excellent meal more food than you can possibly eat at a great price Fun place
The last time I was there was at least 10 years ago and it was so much fun. People were singing and dancing on the tables and throwing plates. It was a party. None of that seems to exist anymore. The food was very good and our waiter was excellent but I really wanted the party atmosphere.
Made an early reservation as we were going to a show. Restaurant was almost empty when we got there. Took about 10 to 15 minutes to get a server to us. Seemed there were plenty but no one came. After we got a server things got much better. Told the server we had a time issue and he took care of us. The food was excellent. We got the meat platter for our entree. Seasoning was was great and the portion was enough for me and the wife. We had a table overlooking the water. Other than the initial issue with getting a server the experience was good. Also parking is difficult in the area. They have a $4 valet parking and it is worth it rather than hunting for a spot and walking.
Went there a few weeks ago after not being there for more than 4 years. It's not what it use to be. Run down a little. Needs a reno. Food is mediocre
WENT FOR A FAMILY REUNION CELEBRATED A BDAY THOUGHT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO A NICE PLACE ... BUT IT WAS BAD AND EVERYTHING I DONT MIND PAY A GOOD PLACE OF FOOD WIT HIGH PRICE ... BUT ITS VERY IMPORTANT THE SERVICE IS GOOD . ALL THE SERVICE WERE IN A CORNER IT TOOK A HOURS FOR SOMEONE TOOK A ORDER AND NOBOBY CAME TO CKECK US . VERY DISORGANIZED VERY BAD SERVICE , A GIRL TOOK US TO THE TABLE AND THEN SHE DISAPPEAR AND THEN A GUY COME TO TAKE OUR DRINKS HE NEVER CAME BACK WITH IT ... WE WENT TO THE BAR TO GET OUR OWN , AND THEN WE HAVE TO CALL ONE OF THE WAITER THAT WAS WALKIN IF HE COULD TAKE OUR ORDER ECT ... VERY BAD DECISION NO TO GO CELEBRATED PLACE .
Way too noisy & overpriced . Appetizers were great but entrees were mediocre. The belly dancing was very fun and the server was good
we knew it was a Greek restaurant, but it was a shock to find Belly dancer on the table dancing all night !! It was so loud and noisy one can not carry a conversation, you just watch, and some men joined dancing on the narrow table, I was waiting for who will fall with this lively act.
About the food it was a big menu and lot of variety, the waiters were not focused on their tables and after our meal we received the bill before they even ask us if we require dessert or coffee!! We could try some Baklava or Loukomados, but thought better leave and get out of this noisy atmosphere
Fun place for our Birthday celebration. Was quieter then usual since it was a Wednesday night. Gabby our server was very accommodating and even served a slice of Baklava with sparklers to the Birthday boy. I've had better cocktails but food was authentic and delicious!
Great little spot along the water open air restaurant so peaceful
Incredible food and possibly the best lemon pepper potatoes ever made
Worth the money and not overly pricey
El servicio es malísimo, los mesero atienden de mala gana, la comida toda llega a diferentes horas, no terminas de comer junto con los demás y aparte la gente se enoja mientras es su trabajo.
No vale la pena perder ni tu tiempo ni tu dinero hay mucho mejores opciones al mismo precio y te atienden como debe de ser.
Good food, good atmosphere, and fun. Belly dancing and music were good to.
Great place. Good food. Lots of fun. Needs to be more handicap accessible. Dining room a little tight for wheelchairs.
I've never been a big fan of Greek food, but this place totally sold me on the cuisine and the atmosphere was second to none. They bring you bread and a cup of chick peas and garlic with a mortar to create your own hummus. The salmon with dill sauce, rice pilaf and asparagus was outstanding and the portions were tremendous with the main entries. The best part of the night was the atmosphere. It is a bit loud but very energetic. There is a belly dancer that goes around dancing and getting the patrons livened up. She will draft people to come dance with her (men, women and children are all fair game) and we happened to be there for a few birthday celebrations, where the birthday dessert was topped with a large sparkling candle, an air raid siren went off, and people were literally smashing plates on the floor left and right (which is a tradition I was unaware of) as they cried out OPA...so it was a festive atmosphere to say the least. It was after dark, too cool and too windy for the windows to be open but when the weather is nice...I'm sure dining beside the waterway just adds to the experience. This is place is right on A1A off the Boardwalk...so if you are looking for a great place away from the Boardwalk...you have to check it out. My girlfriend and I loved it!
They never honored the reservation we had booked weeks earlier for 6.45 pm reservations and after waiting more than 45 minutes to be seated while all that time there was an empty table.
We insisted to be seated at that table we were asked to order from the appetizer cold menu because they had other reservations for 8.30 .
When the manager came to our table he was more disrespectful than the staff.
I gave never written any comments on any restaurants but this I could not accept.
I sent a text to the restaurant customer relations and gave yet to receive any feed back.
A night club want to be with a very loud DJ, belly dancers and table top dancing. Lots of fun for 20 minutes then you just want them to shut up so you can eat your food, talk with your friends in peace. Service was awful with two entrees coming out 15 minutes before the other two entrees at our table. No cutlery for another ten minutes after that at which time the food was cold. No one came by to see how anything was the entire time. It wasn’t until after the bill was paid and the server noticed a ten percent gratuity which, under the circumstances was way too generous, that he asked me if there was a problem with the service. Really?
Awful service. But good food.
The low rating is mostly due to terrible service. My meal was supposed to consist of 1 beer, two appetizers, and 1 entree. After a long wait, I received my beer I asked for a glass for it as well as a glass of water. I was told they were out of glasses. Out of glasses?? Then they brought my entree before my appetizers, one of which never arrived and had to be removed from the bill. It was a horribly frustrating experience, not helped by my Serbian waiter’s cluelessness about why this place was so disorganized. As a Greek, I am embarrassed by how this restaurant is run.
The food was good, the service excellent, overall it was good
The spanakopita was cold and when redone, was overdone.
The view was wonderful on the water
The salad was good, but tg lettuce was limp .
Best Greek food and hummus in southern Florida!
Fabulous food and always great service!!
The food is delicious. The staff is very energetic. The dancing on the tables, the plate smashing and the napkin raining down adds much-needed fun to a classic Greek restaurant. I cannot wait to go back.
