Solid Greek food in an otherwise non-descript shopping center on the north side of Jericho Turnpike (adjacent to the bowling alley). I went with my father, using a recently-purchased Groupon, and we both very much enjoyed the experience and would return. We ordered the Saganaki appetizer (a somewhat oily cheese served on fire in a small pan with tomatoes) -... More

We get takeout here all the time, and the food is great. We came here with a Groupon (not sure if that had anything to do with this) and the waitress never smiled once. She forgot to bring some items to the table, and didn't clear between courses, so our table looked like a bomb hit it. And I noticed... More

This was our first visit to the Athenian Greek taverna rest. The rest. is a little hard to find being in the corner of a strip mall right off route 25 in Commack. The rest. has a nice homey feel to it and you are grated with a smile. The waitress was very helpful in explaining the different dishes. Overall... More

The food was really good and the portions were huge. We were 3 and able to share a groupon for 2. Unfortunately, the service was so so. Waitress was very pleasant but forgetful. Kept asking for servinig spoons n ended up having to take from other tables. Dirty dishes weren't removed from our table as each course was brought. When... More

My favorite Greek restaurant on LI. We dine here frequently on Fri nights when the restaurant features the fresh spit-roasted lamb (served rustic with carved chunks, well done crust and tasty lamb). My wife usually has the kabob special or one of the many fish choices. The menu is large with many meat, fish and Greek specialty choices and is... More

My husband, 3 year old and I ate here after redeeming a Groupon Voucher. The food was outstanding, the service was great and the entire staff made us feel welcomed. Even without the voucher, the prices were reasonable. My son had chicken tenders and fries and unlike him, he ate every single bite. I plan to take my mom and... More

I have been going to The Greek Taverna for years. The food is amazing - fresh and delicious every time. Great place for a casual evening, with the family or for a date night. Good value and healthy portions. You won't leave hungry.
