“Someone else chose restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

This might not have been my first choice with dining options in McLean, VA. I enjoyed my kabob but not the rice as much. The bread was interesting, again not my favorite for the table. Everything was just "okay" and if actually given a choice next time I would politely decline this establishment. We sat on the patio which was pleasant though.

“Good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

When I had dinner on the weekend it was very busy as most tables were full in the patio. Food was very good and I enjoyed the atmosphere much. They could improve the service speed and efficiency.

some meals are oily, e.g., lamb kebab comes with oily rice.
atmosphere of family and fun surrounds

“Family run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Visiting the Washington, DC area and wanted to try The Greek Taverna. Very clean, neat restaurant (we ate inside...outside tables were available) The waitstaff is pleasant and attentive. The bread they serve at the table was quite good and fresh. We ordered the fish special and chicken. Everything was tasty but way too expensive for what they served you. Will scout out for other Mediterranean restaurants when we return to the Washington, DC area.

“Great food served and prepared by people who care”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

I really loved my experience here from beginning to end. We came in (unknowingly) when they were just about to close for the afternoon and we tried to leave but they insisted that it was no problem and they were happy to have us. Typically in these situations the servers or the cooks will be clearly annoyed but everybody was so nice and assured us several times that we were not an inconvenience and to please take our time. We ordered the calamari appetizer, chicken souvlaki, and the scallop special. Truthfully the calamari wasn't too great but the bread they served as well as our entrees were excellent. The scallops were perfectly cooked and served in the most delicious red sauce. The chicken souvlaki was plentiful and delicious. The next time we are in the area we will definitely return.
