Taverna Blu offers a wonderful Greek menu at an affordable price. The service is very good and the atmosphere is very nice with outdoor seating if desired. You will have an enjoyable experience for sure!

We went to this restaurant while staying in the San Diego area. We were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience! The waiter was friendly and efficient. My husband ordered their Country Greek salad with Garlic Tiger Shrimp, and I had their Wild Salmon Lemonato. Both of us were pleased with our meals. The presentation was good, the food was fresh, the flavours were excellent. Our friends had the Salmon dish and the chicken on a skewer and they too enjoyed their meals. We all would recommend this restaurant.

This little restaurant is in the midst of an outdoor shopping center, yet with a very appealing patio, with umbrellas (sun) and heaters (night time). There are a number of restaurants there, and we chose Taverna Blu because the patio was heated, and it had a great soundtrack playing, not too loud, but festive.

Don't be put off by the "Greek" emphasis, I'm not that keen on Greek food and yet loved my lamb kabob, with a side of rice and a delicious mix of steamed vegetables. The word savory springs to mind, describing the lamb, and it was cooked to perfection, just pink, not in any way overcooked so the flavor was terrific. We sat outdoors and thoroughly enjoyed the music and ambiance (there is indoor seating, but this review reflects our outdoor experience). Might be seen as a bit pricey, but I thought it was a good value. Dinner for two was $50, with one glass of wine and tip inclusive. No suggestions for improvement!

I've previously given this place 4-stars, but I'm upgrading them to 5. Everyone in my family likes it: the décor is hip and modern (with a great modern rock soundtrack played at the perfect decibel level: you can hear the music but still talk), and the Greek food is tasty with a modern twist. The meat sampler platter is a great meal for 2 meat eaters. Good desserts, good service. Bring a restaurant.com certificate for exceptional value. A must try for dinner if you're in the area.
