First Time Here...

The food was great, cocktails...not so much. The drinks tasted watered down as other reviewers stated. Next time, I will drink wine. I didn't try the flaming cheese; but the hummus was delicious! We plan to return and try the flaming cheese.

We got here when they opened and things were slow but they were gearing up for a big party. The flaming cheese was wonderful. The spanakopita crisp and tasty. I tried the roast lamb and my husband the lamb kabobs. Both were great but I really loved the flavor of the kabobs. Grass is always greener I guess. We don't... More

About a month my friend and I went out to enjoy some great Greek food that we have visited many times before. This time we had a restaurant.com certificate and were unable to use it do to the new management. We did not have any problems redeeming it with the voucher as our waitress explain to us to do.

This is our first visit to Atlanta, and we wanted something different. Taverna Plaka certainly fit the bill and made for a wonder evening for two. We were greeted at the door by two people who offered us seating either inside or on the enclosed patio, where we ended up sitting next to a propane fire that kept us warm... More

Many of the previous reviews caused me to question whether we should stop here and eat or look for another place. Boy, I'm glad we stopped! The food was fantastic and the service was good. The manager spent time walking around the tables and asking if everything was good, so very happy to see management engaged in the work to... More

Our experience was really, really disappointing, and epitomized a business without any understanding of proper customer service or Branding. A couple months back I bought a gift certificate to take my fiancé out to a nice dinner at Plaka, and when we went to redeem the certificate Friday night the manager said that it was no longer valid. He claimed... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday evening with another couple, After ordering the Chef's Menu (a sampling of many items from the menu) we sipped a glass of wine and enjoyed the entertainment: Greek music, belly dancers, lots of napkin throwing, and more! First came the salad and some warm pita and fresh hummus made at the table. Then... More

I had a great time from beginning to end. Some reviews post that the service is subpar but my experience was positive. It's nice to travel and find a place unlike any in my hometown and I found it here. Great atmosphere, great music, and of course amazing belly dancers. I would recommend trying this on a Saturday night but... More

If you want a fun, loud, crazy dancing on tables night then this is your place. It's perfect for a group outing for birthday, bachlorette, girls night out. The staff gets the crowd drinking, dancing on tables (literally) and into the whole Greek experience. The food is good ( a little over the top on the oil though) and the... More

My wife and I just spent 3 nights in New York City and 2 nights in New Orleans, both cities renowned for their great restaurants. While visiting Atlanta to see our daughters we went to Taverna Plaka (because my wife had been here with her friends before). Olivia was our server and she was just fantastic. The food was even...
