We arrived early enough to avoid the dinner crowd, and early enough to avoid the $4 valet charge in effect for most of the parking spaces. We were able to get a space on the south side of the restaurant where parking was not valet. But if those free spaces had been taken, I would have driven out without dining... More

No matter which day you go, the place is always full. This speaks of the quality for their products. My favorites are the octopus, garides, lamb chops, Gyros (which are served as sandwich only for take out) and greek salad.

We were looking for a place for some Greek food and found Greek Island Taverna on Trip Advisor. We gave it a shot and was not disappointed! We started off with the lemon chicken soup (avgolemeno). It was delicious! I could not put my spoon down...lol I had the chicken shish kabob with rice and veggies. My husband got the... More

Everything about this restaurant equates to an extremely fun atmosphere! Food is delicious and price isn't terrible for what you get. My wife and I went with another couple and shared a bunch of delicious appetizers, all amazing. I only rank it a 4 because I didn't think the service was in line with the food served. The waiter was... More

They offer good food with nice taste But Very tiny and crowded place You can not hear people sitting next to you The owner is friendly but they are very rushing to fill the spot. The prices are higher than average. If you are planning to go out for food and chat it is NOT good place. Only good food.

Really love this place - its a staple on my itinerary whenever i'm in south Florida - the food is authentic Greek (not the Mediterranean want to be Greek) - the owner is always there and the staff - well always polite and professional - and always ready to share their favorite dishes...you can't go wrong with anything you order...

The food was excellent, we had mahi and greek salad. Although I have never had a greek salad without lettuce, but they added it for me. The place is VERY popular and busy. Be prepared to sit close to your neighbors. Loud, fast paced and excellent.

My family is from Greece and I'm a first generation Greek-American. I'm very proud of my ancestry and the food it has produced!!!! I was born with olive oil, feta, and tomatoes in my blood!!! My family would make the best Greek food my whole life and I've become a pretty good cook and critic of good food. My grandfather... More

Judging by the popularity of the place I suspect that the average experience here is probably better than our experience. Our waiter struggled a bit and the service was a bit hit & miss. The menu was a bit limited and we thought a bit "plain" but we enjoyed what we had. They don't do beef stifado which was disappointing... More

Enjoyed a casual evening dining on delicious Greek cuisine. The grilled octopus was perfectly done. The lamb shank was stewed to perfection. Make sure to save room for the baklava.
