Brought here by relatives for brunch. The decor, the staff and the food were all excellent. If in the area I will definitely return.

This was my second visit to Taverna Mykonos for a firm tax season dinner. Their service is gracious, food is good, and is served with a nice side of ambiance. We chose from their group menu which serves the appetizers family style and the entrees individually. Appetizers: assorted dips, fried zucchini & eggplant chips, greek salad- all very good Entrees:... More

Delicious food in a beautiful place. I love the decor and ambiance. We dined there on multiple occasions, always delicious. Great service and fantastic food. It's also perfect for special occasion. One of the most beautiful dining experiences in the area.

Mykonos is definitely one of the best Greek restaurants we've ever been to. Owned by a father & son who also own Oceanos in Fair Lawn, NJ and are hands on operators. Food is excellent & aside from Greek favorites specializes in delicious fresh fish & seafood items. Service is professional & parking on site.

After eating at Taverna Mykonos a number of times on business, I brought my family in for a Sunday lunch. What a great experience! The service was outstanding. Each dish we ordered was meticulously prepared and superbly presented at our table. Every time I brought business guests to Mykonos they were pleasantly surprised by this nondescript restaurant on Broadway in... More

We visited Taverna Mykonos based on the other great reviews we've read. We were not disappointed. The decor is beautiful and elegant, the service impeccable and the food was as good as anything I've eaten in Greece. I would recommend the Moussaka or Gyro platter. Both were delicious and good sized portions. This place is gem of a restaurant.

Second time to this restaurant, but first was a while ago. We will not wait so long to go back. The service as impeccable as was the food and drink. Vladimir our waiter was attentive but not obtrusive, a great asset to this restaurant. We had eggplant and zucchini chips as an appetizer served with tzaziki, delicious and light. Two... More

I had been looking forward to dinner at Taverna Mykonos. Upon arrival, the valet parking was awkward, not very efficient. They just seemed to be going through the motions, rushing around even though it wasn't busy, and asking a question was met with some mumbling, indecisiveness, etc. So be it. Upon walking into the restaurant -- very nice. Dimly lit,... More

I absolutely love this place. Although it can be a little pricey it is worth every penny. We always get lunch delivered from them at work and I get food often to go, I have also eaten in and its always been amazing. The flavor is always on point. Their soup is absolutely the best, my favorite is the chicken... More
