Buzzy, loud, live music, large portions, decent house wine at decent prices, good food, although way too salty and over seasoned for my European taste. Calamari was excellent. All the Greek staples on the menu, large selection of metaxa and ouzo. Recommended.

The food is authentic Greek, the service is very good, and sitting on the patio is a pleasant experience. We particularly like to share the sampler of Greek delicacies which is sufficient for two.

I was a first time visitor to this restaurant. We ate outside on the patio. It was a cooler day and the small heaters put off just enough heat to be comfortable. Food was good. Service was good and there were all types of couples and family noted and welcomed. One older lady even held her small puppy in her... More

We were very happy to have chosen this place over other choices in the area. Lots of tables inside and out but you'll get more of an experience inside with the live music. Liked that they serve you at the beginning with taramosolata and warm bread. The sagaki was fantastic, the octopus was moist and had good grilled taste. The... More

We love great Greek food and frequent Greek/Mediterranean restaurants all over the world. This one was a big disappointment. The food was just okay, not great. My husband ordered the vegitarian special and it was enough for 2 or 3 people--it came on 3 plates. The waitress should have said something. My lamb tenderloin (another house specialty) had little flavor.... More

Having East Coast origins, when I think of Greek food, I think of my many Greek diner experiences. And when I think back to those, I remember wondering how they could possibly offer all the different dishes on those gigantic (things do look much bigger when you're a kid) menus? It was then I learned that food could be frozen.... More

Outstanding Greek food in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Tony is delightful. The Taramasalata dip was so good I saved some for dessert! (the fellow at the next table commented that it MUST contain some "addictive agent"). The house specialty Lamb Tenderloin was so good I ordered it again when we returned to the restaurant 5 days later!!!

We went to Taverna Tony for lunch with a group of eight. We elected to dine family style, which eliminated the drama of ordering as a group. The food was fabulous, and as other reviewers have noted, this is one of the finest Greek Restaurants anywhere. The service was particularly notable, with every attention to detail. We dined, on a...
