Place was pretty much empty - should have known then. Sat. evening, got there at about 5:30, left at about 7. One table of 6, 3 tables of 2 - that's it. Didn't have romaine lettuce for Greek salad and didn't tell us - substituted iceberg. Sent it back. Tasteless anyway. Branzino wasn't filleted all that well - too many... More

The Glen Rock location has closed so we went to the Edgewater place. A few years ago enjoyed the pork chop and this time tried the lamb souvlaki. Very tasty tzatziki and flavorful lamb kabobs but small portion. My friend's salmon steak was grilled well but had so many bones it was annoying to eat. Prices high for small portions.... More

Authentic Greek food. Gyro platter is recommended, and pot Eto's in lemon and musaka. The Resturant located in a shopping center with lots of parking.

My wife and I love authentic Greek food! Taverna is just that. We also love the prices, which are very competitive for the area. The portions are very large and that allows my wife to get the Large Greek Salad (Horiatiki) as her entree and I then get the Lamb Gyro platter. Even after sharing, we end up taking some... More

This restaurant is located on the northeastern end of City Place, a complex of retail shops, restaurants, and condos across the Hudson River from Manhattan in Edgewater, New Jersey. We were staying at the Homewood Suites hotel which is part of the City Place complex. Having had a filling lunch earlier in the day in New York City, we decided... More

Love the salads, fried Zucchini and eggplant chips. Their fish is delicious and fresh prepared to perfection including their lamb chops, which are to die for. Great service and Great views of the Hudson River and Manhattan. They also have outside seating weather permitting. It's worth a visit.

We were looking for a good place to eat and ventured here. The service was only average, not really very attentive at all. Our fish was filled with bones like we have never seen before. Pretty disgusting actually. And for the money, it was way overpriced. If given a choice we would never eat here again.

Stumbled into the GREEK taverna the other night and was delighted by the service and the food. The classics, a gyro and pasticio, were fresh and very tasty. The service was prompt and efficient, without being overbearing.

Love the Tomato Salad. Love ANNA, our favorite waitperson. Grilled Chicken Platter, is what we eat, often. Great CITY PLACE view of NYC. The only thing that sometimes annoys us, is the owner/manager is always on the floor, and doesn't ever say Hello or thank you for eating hear.

Also we had One plate... More
