My husband and I have been here on several occasions. The food is always good. I recommend the osso bucco with a glass of sangria.

Seriously, I can't say enough for the restaurant. The food, the service were fantastic to say the least! Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was exactly what is needed for a fun, delicious family dinner.

Fantastic Greek appetizers and even better lamb! If you are looking for an authentic Greek dining experiment, this is the place. I will definitely return.

We had a surprisingly good meal. Taverna Ozou is a gem in Monroe Township. The food was fresh, the Bronzini outstanding, and our service was wonderful.

Went for lunch on a Friday not crowded. Large parking lot. . Lunch menu fairly extensive but didn't have explanations of items (which would be helpful) used hardbound dinner menu as a guide since it has detailed description. Only one waitress & didn't want to hold her up with multiple questions. Ordered meat gyro w Xtra tsaziki sauce $2 more... More

Cute place, very nice waiter, food was just average. Would not return. Octopus left a lot to be desired, especially after my last Greek experience in Astoria Queens which was delish. (Taverna Cyclades)

We ventured into this place during a business trip, reading some previous reviews from Trip Advisor. The food was good, staff was attentive and friendly, and prices seemed reasonable.

The food was delicious and authentic. The service (Alexandra) was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was quaint and cozy. All in all, Taverna Ouzo is a great find and worth every penny. The kefdedakia and dolamades were exquisite. The kontosouvli was incredible!! Great time. We will definitely be back.

Thank dje2671
