Delicious 4th of July Dinner!

We tried Taverna Plaka for the first time last weekend, and it proved to be a very enjoyable meal. The saganaki starter was delicious, and my pastitsio was very good, although it could have been a little hotter, temperature wise. My boyfriend got the roasted lamb and literally picked the bones... read more

I'm Greek-American and particularly like my own Greek Food, which is based on old family recipes. Taverna Plaka's food used to be pretty good. But it's not anymore. They no longer have Papoutsakia on the menu that includes meat. They also do not have Greek meatballs (Keftedes) on the menu any longer. The food that we did have was not... More

Had heard a lot about this restaurant and wanted to try it out. Came here for dinner last night. The Greek decor of the outside seating area was delightful. The belly dancer performs at every table and she was good. Every once in a while, they throw paper napkins and yell Opa! It was strange that we were not given... More

This was my first visit to the restaurant, it was highly recommended. However I did not get the full details of what to expect. I was celebrating my 65th Birthday!! An intimate group of family and friends joined the festivities. I HAVE NOT HAD THAT MUCH FUN in years!! I danced on top of a table in high heels. I... More

We were there Friday early for a quiet dinner. Hummus and other food was excellent as well as the service. Their sangria was excellent as well. A little pricey, but very good. We came back about 9:30 with plans for the Cuban Salsa Dancing in the back room and waited at the bar until it was time. Lots of fun... More

When we arrived there was only one other couple in the place. We were a little apprehensive at first but we forged ahead. We had lots of dishes to chose from. I chose the YiaYia's Chicken - Stuffed Chicken Breast and my wife had the Moussaka. Both were very good. As we were eating someone turned the background music up.... More

We are generally reluctant to go to a touristy restaurant but this was a pleasant exception. We just got in from the US in the evening and needed some food at a place close by our hotel. We choose it because it had a better crowd than other places around them. Don't get turned away by a fairly aggressive 'sales... More

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

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.
