I am surprised to read all of the positive reviews! The food was OK, but there was 4 of us who only get together twice a year and we do like to chat! Chatting at any decibel was impossible inside and it certainly was not full as "everybody" apparently does not eat there. Since it was a nice day we... More

This restaurant is in my home town. There are not many good, non-Italian, restaurants in my town. This non-Italian restaurant is probably the best in town. We always go with other couples. Everyone eats here, although probably not as frequently as the owners would like. We had a reservation for 4 at a certain time. When we got there, we... More

We love this place. The Salmon dish is my favorite, but the shish kabobs are all top notch. The service is always good, but it's the food that makes this place great. Highly recommended.

Atmosphere - When dining outside on their 2nd floor deck this is the best dining atmosphere of any restaurant in Livingston. My grilled calmari was simply prepared but yet it was the best I have ever had and my wife's spinach pie was excellent. Lunch prices are moderate given the excellent quality.

I was in the area on a Saturday to have lunch and decided to try Thavma Mediterranean Grill based on positive reviews. First thing first. I want reviewers to know Thavma posted their complete menu, lunch and dinner, which is located on the street level. After we were seated and reviewed the menu, we noticed it was missing the lunch...

I eat here quite often with friends for lunch. The salads are great and so are the Greek specialties. I think the portions are a good size. The wait staff is friendly.

It's a good local restaurant, but not my choice. You pretty much must have a reservation on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings or you will wait a very long time. Food is usually pretty consistent, but last visit my wife's fish special was excellent whereas my lamb and orzo was not very good.

I went with friends.I had a Greek salad, fish,wine.and dessert. All well prepared. Attentive service, a reasonably priced place. In the warmer weather there is an outside area on a deck which is a very enjoyable way to have your meal.

This is our "go-to" local restaurant. Whenever we want to have a reasonably priced meal we can depend on, whether with family, friends or just our twosome we go here. We've gone for lunch and dinner. Our apps are always excellent. We love the hummus, tzatziki and beets to start. I also order the calamari which is tender and crispy...always... More

We visited Thavma in February with friends. I've always loved the hummus. It was my first time going here for dinner. I loved the food! I enjoyed delicious fish with fresh steamed vegetables. The meal was healthy, delicious and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and professional. They let us sit and relaxed. We enjoyed a leisurely time together without... More
