They have nightly specials that are fresh and tough to decide on just one. Of course the true Greek specialites do not disappoint...the freshly toasted pitas with hummus are a good started. Order a varierty and share as the portions are generous.

Whenever visiting my daughter in Jersey over the past 6 years, we always make a point to have one meal here. We have never been disappointed in their food and service (yes, it's noisy and yes, the tables are a little too close) and we end up bring some leftovers home! At a recent Sunday lunch the food was very good and plentiful. One little complaint - they charged for a 2nd cup of REGULAR coffee??? A change in policy, I was told. (How cheap, I thought.)

Note to Management: NO COFFEE REFILLS should be clearly printed on the menu.

We went to the movies and picked Greek Taverna because 1) they were close to the movie theatre and 2) they were open on New Year's Day. What a mistaken way to start the New Year. It is a Taverna and we thought we could get simple wraps or souvlaki or gyro in pita like in other nearby Greek casual restaurants. Wrong. You can only get wraps for lunch and they absolutely will not let you order from the reverse lunch side of the menu. Since we didn't want to go searching to see what other restaurants were open, we were forced to order overpriced gyro platters, which were dry and tasteless. The skordalia (garlic dip) appetizer was okay. The pita bread had been reheated and was hard and slightly burned (although plentiful). The French Fries were soggy, and the salad needed more dressing. I wouldn't have minded the cost if the food was good, but it wasn't. We won't be going back. It's Greek to Me is definitely getting my business in the future at either the Fort Lee or Englewood locations. The only thing going for Greek Taverna is its location. In the future if I need to eat in that shopping center, I'll go to Baumgarts..

Busy but not noisy. If the weather were better, outside overlooking the NYC skyline. The service was professional, attentive and friendly. The dishes were all seasoned well and generously portioned. The grilled calamari app was excellent -- almost thought it was an octopus! Will be back. BYOB. But they do offer local NJ wines if you forget.
