Food was excellent. Entertainment was awesome. It took some time before we we served (initial hello, what can I start you with). But all was well. Went on a Saturday, there was a DO and belly damcing...so it is loud.

I was hoping for a lively evening with belly dancers for my friends last night in Atlanta. However being a Monday this did not happen. Our waitress was wonderful. The food was delicious I was using the Atlanta Passbook. BOGo. What a deal. We did see some napkins tossed and a guest danced on the table to celebrate a birthday. I don’t see that a lot!

Loud and obnoxious. Waiters think they're performers. Fake Greek yelling and throwing things. Go there if you want a circus, not a meal.

Fun date night! We didn’t read any reviews before. But food was amazing and the entertainment was great. We were not expecting belly dancing and a DJ. It was really fun. But if you’re looking for a calm Greek place this isn’t it.

Prices were higher than the quality of the food merited. The service was good but this is not a place to go if you want to have a conversation over dinner. It is very noisy and the belly-dancing really sets the tone.

OMG - My new favorite restaurant. Service and food were SUPERB! It has a great vibe and our waiter was so much fun. I went with a group of friends and we were treated like royalty. We felt like we experienced Greece, especially its hospitality. Come hungry and the portions are enormous. Highly recommend it.

Great food and service! Our server Dimitri was terrific! We had the Chef's Combo menu and it was a great value. We visited on a Tuesday when there isn't live music or belly dancers, but look forward to returning on a weekend.

We tried to order a bottle of Greek red wine 3 times on the Manu they were all out of stock, the manager decided to substitute a bottle reserve red for the same price we ordered; they have very good lamb dishes.

For appetizers, we enjoyed the hummus and tzatziki sauce, but not so much the red pepper/feta spread. A bit too salty to my taste. Chicken Plaka platter was good, and so were the gyro plates.

We had a wonderful time. The food is excellent. We had the flaming cheese, spanakopita, gyro plate, lobster ravioli, roasted lamb and Yaiyai chicken. It was excellent. The lamb was fork tender and the lemon potatoes were a treat. The flaming cheese was amazing. Everyone raves about their food. The entertainment and service were superb. It was a slow evening but the staff created the party atmosphere we were hoping for.

We had a large group dinner at Taverna Plaka. We went with the chef’s menu including appetizers and dessert. Everything was great from the salad to the flaming cheese to the lamb to the baklava. Service was impeccable. Mackenzie is a gem. Will return for sure.

We come there a lot, but this time our waitress was not good. She forgot about us. We waited forever for our food. The food we ordered was not good. We complained that we did not like it. And she did not seem to care or offer anything!! Even our son did not like his meal and he is 7. His chips with his chicken fingers came out soggy and his chicken fingers had no flavor and barely salted. We we loved the atmosphere but we were really disappointed in the service.

Ho-hum. The hummus was waaaaaay too dry and putty texture. Calamari was hard and the batter was not balanced. Whoever made the batter needs to check their measurements. The stuffed shrimp appetizer were the best thing that we had. This is not a restaurant for "foodies" or "gourmets".

My son and I went on Mother's Day and this was our first visit to this restaurant. The food and service was excellent and the environment is fun. We had the Saganaki which is the flaming cheese, humus, lamb chops and walnut cake. Everything was cooked to perfection and was very tasty. Dimitar took great care of us. Watching him celebrate the birthdays and including others, especially the children was an added bonus. It was a unique experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely go back again.

My friends and I really enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The server had a lot going on as she was working two additional tables. She was not familiar with some things on the menu and she did acknowledge that. She did get an answer for the things she did not know. It took a while to get those biscuits, but they were WORTH THE WAIT!!!!!!
