Description: MP Taverna is Chef Michael Psilakis' modern approach to traditional Greek cuisine. With three locations across the greater NY Area (Irvington, Astoria & Roslyn), each blends a bustling dining scene with a friendly, neighborhood approach. Guests are welcome lunch, dinner, brunch & happy hour and can enjoy a variety of Mediterranean inspired dishes like Grilled Octopus, Grandma's Meatballs with tzatziki and lemon, a lovely piece of Grilled Branzino or a tender, fall off the bone Lamb Shank Yiouvetsi. This is a mere sampling of the variety of dishes the restaurant offers, along with an extensive offering of seasonal cocktails, wine & craft beer.

We went to dinner at Kefi's on the Sunday night of Easter Weekend. The food was incredibly good and the service was excellent.
The price was reasonable!

I would totally recommend this to anyone!

Found this nice little Greek restaurant on line, found the service and the food to be very good. Wide variety of choices both in the appetizer options as well as the main course. The lamb shank was excellent and just about the right size. Friendly, attentive service without being pushy. If you are looking for good Greek food, with a lot of choice, this is a good place to try.
My only suggestion is that the restaurants read the special request section of the reservation request. I always ask for a table with leg room and in a relatively quiet area (hard to find in NYC). Some places try to accommodate my requests. This time we were seated at a small two person table in the middle of the traffic area. But will certainly go back again.

Being Greek, I wanted to see what this restaurant was all about. It's in a nice area, uptown on Columbus Avenue near 84th so great for after Museum of Natural History or a walk around Central Park. 3 different sections you can sit at: Down in the "basement" there is more elbow room but it is a bit dark, main dining room or a few table near the front bar. I would recommend sitting by the bar, so you can watch the world go by outside. Great assortment of dishes and appetizers. Recommend getting a bunch of "mezes" (appetizers) instead of a full meal, that way you can sample everything. I asked waiter if one of the dishes could be made without vinegar because I don't like it and he said "sure" but the other dish I ordered was SOAKED in vinegar! I guess he didn't understand or had no clue about the dishes. Waited 20 minutes for the desert. So, all in all, nice place, great prices for NYC, good food and desert, but service is not up to par.

Not enough ways to describe the wonderfully tasty food at this Greek restaurant. Party of 9 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Everything from the calamari appetizer to the Cypriot sausage to the Branzino and all in between, tastes were astonishing. Salads were delightfully fresh, service was excellent and friendly and the wine list was superb. On my list whenever I'm in New York.
