They need a bigger menu, not enough to choose. What they do have I like very much. The owner or one of the owners who stays by the front needs to freshen up a quite a bit. He is a heavy set man that dresses like a homeless person, VERY poor taste.First impressions are not very good entering this... read more

We visited on a Saturday evening, and fortunately, didn't have a wait. We had two appetizers -- the fried zucchini and eggplant, and the cold platter with six different spreads. Both were excellent -- the veggies light and the spreads fresh and served with cut pita pieces. Huge servings! As main courses, I had the beef souvlaki, which was made... More

Great dinner in Taverna Ouzo ! The Greek salad was excellent, the hummus superb, stuffed eggplant, the Bronzini (sea bass) extraordinary! The service also excellent, very kind and sweet. We strongly recommend to go to Ouzo.

Great food in this casual restaurant with a wonderful authentic Greek flavor palate. I had their Spanakopita platter that came with a Greek salad, both were delicious. I had my wife's left-over Moussaka for dinner the next night and that was also very good. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the waitress was friendly and professional. It's a nice place...

Nice restaurant. Nick out waiter was great, he is actually from Greece. Food choices plentiful. We ordered the dorado, Bronzini, Pstachio crusted snapper and meat and lamb gyro which was a platter enough for three people! Tzaziki sauce is so good with our fried zucchini and eggplant appetizer and the first time tasting grilled octopus , not chewy very tender... More

Been here several times and food was good. However, ordered a "pink snapper" special that was not on the menu. The average prices for a meal ranged from $34 to $45. When we received the bill the cost of my "special" was $80, yes that's right $80. I questioned the waitress and she replied that this was an imported Mediterranean... More
