Every meal has been very good. Service is fast, wait staff are excellent. The outdoor seating area has a nice atmosphere.

“Average Canadian Greek Style Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We've been here a few times and it hasn't improved over the years. The food is mediocre at best, usually overcooked and under spiced for Greek food. The Greek salad was hours old, dry, no dressing, and limp. Service is adequate, the girls are rushed but get the job done. There's no background music or Greek authenticity, feels like your everyday restaurant. Unfortunately we were in the middle of the restaurant and there was a huge cold draft every time the front door opened. They dimmed the lights when our dinner was served and couldn't see what we were eating. Not likely to be back.

“Great Greek Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Taverna Gorgona has a great Greek atmosphere and typical, but very good Greek dishes. They have the usual variety of entrees and appetizers and their prices are reasonable. The soulvakis are very good, but I have had better roast lamb. The Greek salad is generous and the service is good. We enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back!

“A!mazing service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Today myself and three other colleagues shared a most amazing experience during what for many restaurants is the busiest time of the year.I tend to notice the small things as I have been in the hospitality business for most of my life. The linen was fresh,the cutlery and tableware polished and spotless. We were attended to by Carla who was gracious and professional. Carla timed our appetizers and drinks perfectly and later our main courses in a seamless ribbon of perfection. I rarely am overly satisfied with food and service but the afternoon luncheon was perfect in every detail. I'm already looking forward to returning.

“Food court at the mall was better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Have been here a couple of times this year with friends who live in the area and each time, the food & service has been nothing more than average at best. The Slovakia was over cooked & tzatsiki was very thin and not enough cucumber or garlic to flavor it. The moussaka was over cooked and tasteless. The little bit of Greek salad served with each meal was the best part. Each visit was disappointing in fact.
