We're are Her now. I have been here several times and the food is great. Tonight the experience is awful. 7:30 reservations and we were not seated until 8:15. Someone brought water but hostess did not come to our table for another 30 minutes. We ordered drinks and appetizers from the bar. No one even came to tell us there... More

Had our Orthodox Xmas lunch here today and it was wonderful. All seven of us had great appetizers and entrees. Great sangria also. The inside of the restaurant is very charming and tastefully showcases the Greek style. I highly recommend Ouzo's!

Just ate at taverna ouzo. It was fantastic. I ordered the roast pork and it was so moist and delicious. The Greek salad was gigantic and the flaming cheese was a treat. Going to come back

I love this restaurant. My husband and I just got back from a trip to Athens and the Greek Islands. This restaurant is very authentic. The owner is so hospitable and the food is amazing. Great lunch specials. You have to try the lemon potatoes, a must! I felt like I was sitting in a Greek Cafe in Mykonos.

A group of us went for dinner and had a great time. The service was really good and the food was good as well. The chicken on the meat/gyro platter was a little dried out but everything else was very good. The grilled octopus was very tasty.

This is a great restaurant if you like Greek food. The seafood is fresh and the servers are very friendly. I am more into plain food and I have a difficult time ordering off their menu.
