I was at Cactus Taverna tonight! One of my favorite places to dine. The food is consistently delicious and beautifully plated. They offer several unique dishes you won't find at most restaurants. The owner always shows his appreciation to all for their patronage while dining. Excellent choice, you won't be disappointed.

Cactus Taverna has an interesting menu, decent food and cordial service but its physical space really needs an update. The decor is tired and stained. New flooring and paint would go a long way. Overall, while it is an acceptable place to dine, in my recent trips, it just isn't up to its previous level of performance.

We regularly go to this restaurant because of its amazing food and service. The food is simply and consistently amazing. The servers are typically attentive and helpful and the food does not normally take too long to receive. The restaurant also has live entertainment. The menu selection is also good. Each and every time we go, we enjoy the quality... More

Great service - everyone in the place, including the owners are always ready to meet your needs. The food is consistently very, very good. There is often live entertainment typically a solo act performing coffee house style music that is wonderful yet soft enough to allow conversation. The menu, while not huge, is varied enough for everyone. We have taken... More

One of my TOP 2 pics for a stylish, elegant night out on the town with my husband! Although some may find the menu limited, I find it consistently pleasing. This is a trade mark of an excellent kitchen staff. This eatery offers a variety of international cuisine. Do not be fooled by the name. In 20 years I have... More

We enjoyed our meal at Cactus Taverna. The manager was our waiter and he was super helpful and friendly. The salsa had an unusual flavor. Not my favorite but everything else was delicious. The spanakopita was great. I had ahi tuna. My friend had a shrimp scampi dish without pasta - it was an appetizer. She loved it. My other... More

My boyfriend and I just visited and our experience was so excellent that I had to write a review. We both had the 8 ounce filet with crab imperial on top. We asked for medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. The food was absolutely delicious. Our server was attentive and kind. The rest of the staff was very helpful... More

Friends invited us to join them for dinner. So glad we accepted. Cactus Taverna is located in a strip mall; however, the food served is more like a fine dining establishment. The decor was welcoming and the staff was more than welcoming. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to please. Even the owner came by the table... More

After checking into the Holiday Inn express post driving from Pennsylvania, we found this restaurant on google. Decided to give it a try and boy am I glad we did! Excellent food, atmosphere and incredibly friendly staff. The management really knows how to make the traveler feel welcome. Highly recommend this as a stopping place for those traveling up and...

Lamb racks, broiled shrimp with jalapeño raspberry sauce, Spanish dish paella, fills Minton etc is what the entire family ordered Baba ghanoosh for appetizer Everything fresh, extremely flavorful and a mixture of cultures, fusion cuisine at its best when you will not dislike any side of the cultures because of just awesome flavors and freshness of food
