Elia Taverna is a wonderful place to eat for many reasons. The chef is a genius. His Greek food reflects the life lessons he learned from his mother and grandmother back in Greece. You have never had stuffed grape leaves like his - warm, totally homemade. And don't leave without having his famous lemon roasted potatoes. Everything here is delicious.... More

This place is a gem...for the food! The food is to die for. Authentic Greek cuisine. You can see the owner there on a daily basis answering the phone and involved in every aspect of the restaurant. It is blows any other Greek place around out of the water. I have had a significant amount of bad service as restaurants... More

I used Tripadvisor to select this local restaurant for my wife and I before we popped over to Bronxville Bow Tie to take in a movie. We were greeted by no-one at the door, only to see the hostess poke her head out from in front of the kitchen to point at a table. Absolutely no customer service. When she... More

From the outside, there isn't much to see, but inside one is immersed in a fantasy of a Greek tavern. From the decorations to the food presentation, it's lovely. When we arrived, the place was largely empty so we did expect a bit better service than we received, but over all everyone was polite and seemed to know their job.

Great Greek food. I haven't actually gone in and sat down to eat, but this is one of our go to delivery favorites. Delivery is simple and timely. On those days when I just can't get it together to make a meal, this is perfect, tasty, reasonably healthy food.

Here's a restaurant that doesn't mince actions and words. When you first walk in, you look around and realize that this is not a "show and tell" type of restaurant. The tables have no table cloths, the utensils are neatly wrapped in paper napkins and you might question the experience before it begins...but...wait for it!!! Immediately the service will introduce... More

I've been here many times. I've always had my five year old with me, whether with a group or just the two of us. Let me start by saying the Maitre D (?) is always SUPER accommodating and makes my daughter feel like a princess...He even calls her princess, which makes her think that restaurant is the greatest place ever...

This had become our "go to" restaurant. Many restaurants in Westchester are mediocre and overpriced. Elia Taverna is consistently excellent food at fair prices. I have eaten here over 10 times and typically order from the specials, but i always order the octopus as an appetizer. Don't expect fancy high-priced fish Greek food like Milos in NYC, but i enjoy...

Their version of avoglemno chicken lemon soup was good but not great. The imam appetizer (eggplant stuffed with onions, tomatoes, etc.) was delicious, but very oily. Our appetizer portions were generous. Crunch pita bread with black and green olives came as a complementary item, a nice surprise. We didn’t order anything more from their extensive menu, which lists a number... More
