Small, casual place in the middle of Ridgefield Park. Service is prompt and very cordial. Hummus and stuffed grape leaves were very tasty. Falafel was dry, suggesting that it was made in advance and rewarmed. I tend to order the moussaka in Greek restaurants, and...this one did not disappoint. Spanakopita was equally tasty, and the lamb shank was humongous and very good. They also offer non-Greek items, for those so inclined. The place was almost empty on a Saturday night; apparently they have quite a large take-out business.More

We came here on a Saturday night and there was a very small crowd. With that being said the food was very good. The lamb shank was fall off the bone. The pastichio was also excellent. Prices were very reasonable compared to most places.

My sister wanted to try Sparta Taverna so I went along on a Thursday night for an early dinner. I had tried their location in Wood-Ridge which was ok, nothing over the top. The service was informal and friendly so no complaints there. Restaurant decor/ambiance...is on the simple side. At the waiter's suggestion, we tried the red pepper hummus. If you like a red pepper puree with copious amounts of garlic, then this is for you. We then asked for the regular hummus which was underwhelming. Spanokopita-decent Fried zucchini- good Mousaka- nothing great, the meat had a strange seasoning. ST is more of a take out as I see it and as long as you focus on only certain dishes. I would call it average.More

Went by on a rainy night. First time to visit as we were on our way to Newark airport. Place was very quiet when we arrived, so a little concerned. We ordered a Greek salad and Mousaka. The person I assume was the owner was...attentive and the food was good. Would go again if ever in the area. Seems like a nice local neighborhood place.More

Recently had lunch here on a Wednesday around noon. A good crowd was enjoying their meal. We were seated and our waiter brought water and hummus and pita bread. The have some nice menu selections. We wanted to order the Saganaki baked cheese but our...waiter informed us that they were out. We went with the Falafel, Caesar salad and hummus and pita. Food was delivered promptly and tasted very good. The salad was a large portion so we took some home. The Falafel was nice. Reasonable priced. The place was clean and had colorfully painted scenes of Greece on the walls.More

It very hard to find a great local restaurant especially when you are trying to compare from another town that you wished you lived close by to purchase food, but this would have to be for the meantime. I am a foodie that is browsing...many restaurants throughout the local area and so far, I have to say maybe this plus the Thai place can satisfy so far, the palate. The reason behind the average its because I have not had a chance to dine in with kids and all, but the pickup takeout food can really boost the experience even more if done right. An order was placed, and questions were asked in regards of the food as well as what does it come with. I’m sorry but I am all about customer service over the phone and the gentleman on the phone did not seem really intrigued to take my order. I kind of felt I was ordering from a Wendy’s or a McDonalds so that flair of ordering thru the phone was completely killed (better off online). Once the food was being order, specifics were asked to the order taker making sure that the order was correct. Once it was picked up it begins. I think I read too deep about portions; I think many people are correct your better off eating in. The soup order was incorrect, I was really looking forward on trying the Manhattan Clam Chowder, but unfortunately, I got the Chicken Noodle, which I asked not to have. Forget about asking for sauces because they charge $1 for each 1 oz small sauce which the first one is free, and they got that wrong as well (I asked for white sauce not the orange one). At the end it’s a good place locally, but a bit too high priced for my taste especially in the portions and phone service must get better. I would check out other Greek places to compare and if that’s the case would not mind driving a bit further for food if the price is based upon the quality and quantity.More

Subject says it all. Food is really good, but the portions are light (for the price you’re paying). I would consider it to be pricey. Usually get the chicken platter, comes with a small soup or salad. Falafel appetizer is also delicious.

I ordered via GrubHub (never again!) who screwed up my order when I tried to use a promo code (they put a "hold" on my order, so I waited over 2 hours to get my food!) I contacted the restaurant who explained what happened (they...could have called me, but OK) and 20 minutes later, the food finally arrived, with abject apologies, and some extra beverages, which was very nice of them. Food was very good and I would have it again, only next time, I'll just go and pick it up - it's nearby and I won't be using GrubHub again.More

Been there many times consistent. Being critical the Hummus is a total bore. Flavorless...Other than that everything else works. Also BYO so ... do the mathMore

My wife had been to Sparta Taverna, but yesterday was my first time. We went to there River Vale location - they have others in Ridgefield Park and Wood Ridge. Everything is made on the premises and the pita bread is to die for. I...had a gyro wrap - delicious and easiiy transportable...god for a quick lunch on the go. My wife got a dish that is ;listed as an appetizer, but is a very full platter for one person. It featured several of their specialties, including chicken, gyro meat, felafel, keftedes and very good tzatziki dip. It is a nice appetizer for three or four at a table. There was an error in our original order. It was quickly corrected with sincere apologies...as should be done in all businesses when mistakes happen (as they will). We chatted with folks at a nearby table. The wife had a recent broken knee and wanted to come here to escape the house and to enjoy time out with good food...a high recommendation. This is typical of the friendly atmosphere at Sparta.More
