I live in Monroe and passed this restaurant many times over four years but spent two weeks in Greece and was underwhelmed by the food there. Then I was taken there and I didn't have a choice as to where to dine. That was six months ago and have been there five times since that initial visit. I actually crave... More

Taverna Ouzo has the complete package one looks for when eating out. Management is always present making sure everything flows well, the wait staff are attentive, helpful, and friendly, the kitchen maintains an excellent level of consistency, and the food, most of all is spectacular. My favorites are the fresh halibut, red snapper, or salmon. Salads are fresh and made... More

Nice atmosphere but the food was definately not authentic Greek nor was it tasty. The bill for four was over $200 and wasn't worth it. I had the lamb chops which were not very good. Very fatty and not done well. It you want a real Greek meal -- don't go here.

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.
