bad service, not accommodating, long wait, ran out of food, could not substitute items, overpriced for what we received. I would recommend this restaurant to no one!

I have read every review on this site and I can tell you that after watching the owner and his nephew in action I can only say that this is a very hostile place of business. I have been to Taverno Ouzo twice now and the food is very good. A group of us visited on Tuesday, 8/19/14 and an... More

As usual, Taverna Ouzo served an outstanding meal. I would have given this an excellent rating, except that the lemon potatoes, which are normally delicious, tasted as though the chef completed removed the cap to the salt shaker when preparing them. In addition, when we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation. Upon stating that we did not,... More

Been here about 1/2 dozen times the last 2 years and are always happy and full when we leave.. Family run and on-site to ensure a good dining experience. Great vegetarian choices. Main courses are large. Octopus appetizer is on the small side ( not really a shareable course). Been told the lamb could be tough (I don't eat meat,... More

This was my third time to Taverna Ouzo in several years. It is near my sister's home in East Windsor, and I joined her and her husband for dinner. The Stefanopoulos family makes you feel like you are a Stefanopoulos, too. They greet you warmly when you enter, check on you with sincerity, and meet you at the door when... More

I love this restaurant. The staff is extremely nice and welcoming and always make sure you order the right dish. The food here is the closest you can get to actually eating in Greece. Amazing.

We found a great Greek restaurant in Monroe township New Jersey and were very happy to try home made Greek food, tasty appetizers, perfect Sangria. We had an appetizer that was enough for 4 people - Pikila Hot Zesta, everyone ordered main course and got generous portions of delicious food. Prices are moderate and great service. I will definitely go... More

We arrived on Mother's day (busiest restaurant day of the year) and with 4 small children. The food, as always, was awesome. The fish (snapper and salmon) are incredible and their appetizer salads (babaganoush, hummus, and others) are a must.

I was in Ewing, NJ to speak at a Conference. Drove down on Sunday from MA and met up with some friends from NJ who were in charge of choosing a restaurant for dinner. None of us had been here before...and all four gave it a "superb" rating. Each of us had a different dinner, lamb, salmon, chicken and a... More
