Had dinner here with friends on June 22, 2014. Being Greek, I've had Greek food all my life. However....this restaurant, courtesy of its innovative and creative owner, takes traditional Greek cuisine to a whole new level by adding new combinations, new tastes, new sauces, and providing very renditions of classic recipes. The meal was most reasonably priced--under $140 for our... More

The location is very pretty. You can try a very good lamb and chicken. The waiter was really nice and kind with us. We listened good Greek music. If you like Mediterranean foods that's the right place to go.

We stumbled upon this excellent restaurant and were lucky enough to be seated without a reservation on a Friday evening. To start…. the wine was delicious and eggplant appetizer and grilled beet salad were wonderful! We shared multiple small plates and also the grilled chicken and everything was great. Service was also terrific. I highly recommend this restaurant and will... More

I dined here a few nights ago upon a recommendation from a Greek acquaintance. The menu was unique and inspiring. The atmosphere was young and vibrant. The food was good and I am excited to go back and forth try other options on the menu. The duck gyro was very good and creative. The fish gyro was also good. The... More

This is just a wonderful, eclectic delicious restaurant. The small plates are wonderful and we think that several make a perfect, shareable meal. Next time, that is what we will do. That said, I don't know how I will pass on the lamp chops. They were perfect!

I ate at Taxim for an early Saturday evening dinner with family. Though a long-time favorite of my sister (we are Greek) I was a first time diner. I am generally a traditionalist where my Greek food is concerned, but this restaurant's unique twist on the foods I grew up with simply blew me away. First, it is NOT your... More

Fantastic food. Lamp gyro is delicious. Eggplant appetizer the best ever. Great drinks. Service very attentive and prompt. Only issue was that they ran out if beet salad.

Years ago on Skyros an island guy who'd been living in Paris told me how frustrating it was to come home and try to create something different with the basic cuisine. I'm a Greek food fan. Taksim is the first place that I've been that makes the guy's fantasy real. Amazing food, among the best we've had anywhere, under any... More

We started with several little plates, including eggplant with pita, cauliflower, octopus, prawns, cheese spread with pita--each one superb. I ordered Souvlaki; my friends ordered lamb shank and more little plates. Even the pita was extraordinary. Our waiter recommended drinks and wine per our preferences. He was right on each time.
