The octopus is awesome, the flatbread and dipping sauces are amazing. The lamb chops are superb!!! The place... read more

We decided to try Taverna Mykonos because Oceanos told us it was their sister restaurant. We have been going to Oceanos for years now and it is probably our favorite restaurant in the area. They had similar dishes but with more of a Greek twist. To start off, our waitress was rude and had a terrible attitude. My parents ordered... More

Stopped in for lunch with a co-worker. We noticed it while driving on B'way one day. So glad we checked it out. The menu had a lot of interesting choices. We were both very happy with our orders. We had the Spanakopita appetizer. I had the veggie wrap and fries (not very Greek, I know) and it was very good.... More

Excellent Greek food, always fresh. The cocktails are excellent. This place has nothing to envy to any of the NYC restaurants. The ambience is great. The desserts are very, very good.

Dinner last night at Mykonos was a treat. Everyone ordered a Greek style appetizer, we also ordered an octopus appetizer for the table. The 4 of us thought the appetizers were excellent, as we shared them as well as the octopus. But the octopus was the real winner, tender, perfectly cooked, with an excellent flavor. All ordered fish/seafood, but each... More

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
