With all the positive reviews and posts about Pontos Taverna we decided to have dinner after a movie at the Garden Cinema. Our impression was quite different from all the positive accolades. After a movie expect to wait for a table but ours was well within the 20 minute estimate the young lady mentioned when we left our name with... More

The food is authentic Greek, amongst the best I have had in North America (including Astoria, Queens), fresh, home-made and delicious. The choice is a little limited and the decor bland but hey, you can't have everything. Friendly family staff provide quick service. Value for money is great. Next time I am in Norwalk and feeling hungry I will know... More

We went to Pontos Taverna for our non-formal wedding rehearsal dinner with 25 friends and family. The service and food was spectacular and our server was incredible. Everyone was thrilled with the food which was delicious! This as the perfect place to start our wedding weekend!

This place has authentic Greek food that is absolutely delicious. I am a very picky Greek who up until today would only eat Greek food in Astoria Queens because I could never find an authentic Greek restaurant. The staff is friendly and polite. This place is seriously one of my top 3 Greek restaurants. If you are anywhere near this... More

we have been coming here a bunch since they opened and this family run establishment serves great Greek food at a nice price point. We often go to the Garden Cinema down the block and eat here after and they are pretty busy at dinner. Spit some salads and dips to start; the portions are really large and for some... More

Location - poor, interior - poor, atmosphere - better make your own.... but the ambiance of lovely servers and to die for food makes it worthy to drive many miles ( which I fortunately don't have to!) Don't miss the romaine salad and my absolute favorite - chicken souvlaki - marinated grilled morsels served with delicious tatziki and pita bread.

I am Greek and this is the best Greek food I've had since visiting Greece. Service is super friendly. Very accommodating to vegetarians. Decor is nothing fancy--you're going for the food. Highly recommend.

Best Greek food in Norwalk - and thats saying a lot! Absolutely try the beefteki sandwich or platter. Also the patriarch makes a rice pudding. Its amazing - and I dont usually like rice pudding. We've gone here with 9-10 for a family dinner, and with another couple for a delicious and romantic double date. This place is so tucked... More

Pontos Taverna has some of the best home style Greek cooking around! My husband and I would always travel to Astoria in New York but since Pontos opened there is no reason to travel when this little gem is in our back yard! The food is always fresh and tasty. The Kiriakidis family who own the restaurant always makes you... More

Overall, Pontos Taverna is the best place to get Greek food without going to Greece. Everyone is so nice, which makes the whole experience more enjoyable. I could eat there every weekend!
