We were tired and couldn't make up our minds on dinner, so we stopped here on the way home, having driven past it hundreds of times with vague promises to "check it out some time". What a great choice. We got there just after five, and there were plenty of tables (it was starting to fill up pretty well for... More

We took our Mother to Calypso's Taverna at noon on a Sunday for a small celebration of her birthday. She is elderly and somewhat frail and prefers quiet restaurants with calm, attentive service. They are kind to her here and treat her very respectfully. She gets bland food where she lives; but, she still has an appetite for well-seasoned food... More

It was my first time in this restaurant. I didn't know what to get so to play it safe I got a calamari since the waitress recommended it. She said the restaurant was famous for it. Maybe so, however in my personal experience, it wasn't good. The breading was seasoned enough yes, and it's not thick it was crunchy. However,... More

My husband and I were told to check this place out if we love food. It met all of our expectations. The place doesn't look fancy from the outside but don't judge a book by its cover! We went for a date night and had a such a good time. We tried the appetizer combo platter and fell in love... More

My sister rave's about this place so decided to take the family there. I feel dining should be an experience and the set up and artwork put me at ease right away. I decided to go with the tried and true and went for the calamari as an appetizer which was both flavorful and plentiful. For the main I went... More

The food here is off the charts! I always want to try something different but I always end up with the same thing...a dinner dish that is off the menu. They always accommodate my request for this special meal of salmon. The owners are so friendly and kind and you can tell the servers enjoy their jobs. Highly recommend this... More

The selection of food was great and all of the food tasted great. As a table we got a platter of different foods and everything had great flavor and was fresh. The meats were well prepared and the 2 person meal was sufficient to feed three of us. One of the members in our party had a gluten allergy and... More

My Wife and I were looking to change things up a bit as far as going out for food. She suggested we try Greek food. I have to admit that at first I was a bit concerned because I haven't had Greek food too often before. So, I looked up some places on Tripadvisor and read some reviews. This place... More

I've been to Calypso's numerous times because they have terrific food and went again recently. As always, great food and an enjoyable evening but.... I purposefully saved half my meal to take home and when I asked the server to wrap it up for me he said no problem. He must have been on autopilot because he came back to... More
