All the traditional choices were excellent and well priced. I was totally surprised on my first visit, SO, I tried it again AND discovered the food was just as tasty. Good, attentive service as well. Save room for dessert you will not be disappointed.

I was in Greece in October of 2012 and this restaurant is not only authentic, but actually better than some of the restaurants I went to in Greece. I was at Ponto Taverna with nine family members, so we asked Faith, our waitress, to select a sampling of several dishes for diversity. Her choices were outstanding, as was her service... More

My boyfriend got a Groupon for this restaurant and I've lived in Norwalk for 11 years and never tried it. What a delightful surprise. It's close to the Garden Cinema. I would park on Wall Street if going to restaurant. There's a 12 hour municipal parking nearby that it looks like you pay by an application. For me, it was... More

Went to dinner early for dinner on a Friday in July. The restaurant was pretty busy but we were seated within 5 minutes. The waitstaff was very pleasant and helpful when making decisions about the menu. We ultimately decided on the Pikilia which provided an assortment of the grill items. It came with 2 of the souvlaki, beef patties, lamb... More

We enjoyed some better-than-average Greek food at very reasonable prices tonight. I was especially pleased with the bifteki (burger) and the rice pudding was indeed the best I've ever had (Sorry Mom.) The restaurant was full on an early Friday evening, but we were seated without a wait. That, unfortunately, was the only time we didn't wait an abnormally long... More

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
