A wonderful Greek dinner with the hubby.. I have enjoyed lunch here a couple of times, but what I want to review is our dinner. Came here with the hubby since I was craving Greek food, restaurant was a little packed but we were seated pretty quick. Tables are a little closer than I like and navigating between them can...

After going to this Greek restaurant, you won't want to go anywhere else for Greek Food. It is just mouthwateringly delicious! It is food you will remember for a long time. The service is also excellent. If you go on the weekend make an early reservation because many of the tables are small and close together, and you will probably... More

Taverna Mykonos is perhaps the best Greek restaurant we have ever been to. Owned & operated by father (Peter) & son (Nick) who also own upscale Oceanos Sea Food restaurant in Fair Lawn, NJ. The food recuperation, Service & decor make this a winner. Full bar & valet parking on site. The only drawback here is pricing which is quite... More

All the good was delicious and each dish had a unique flavor that made your tastebuds dance. Their were multiple options for all type of eaters. A definite place to... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Mykonos. Our server was knowledgable, friendly and very helpful with good suggestions especially regarding wine choices. We had Greek sausage with sautéed kale and tomato. It was excellent as were my sautéed soft shell crabs in a wonderful lemon sauce. My husband had lamb chops. The portion was very generous. He said they were... More

Very nice place, great food. The only negative, right after we were done with dinner, restaurant manager was rushing us to order desert and basically leave. Apparently, they had another party waiting for the table.

This place is great for lunch or dinner.

The greek meatballs were worthy app, very good mussels in tomato sauce. My wife had the rack of lamb and... More

This is a fun loud place with good Mediterranean food that is worth going to. I can't say it's my favorite Greek food around but I did enjoy the meal. The service was quite good and the shrimp and feta appetizer was delicious (as were the zucchini and eggplant chips). The Chilean sea bass was tasty but the Black Sea... More

Great service with beautiful atmosphere. The wine list had delicious Greek wines by the glass. Spanakopita was stellar. Meatballs were meh. Mussels outstanding. Had several dips with fresh pita. Good selection. We will definitely be back!

We found that the place is not baby friendly, there isn't a baby station in any bathroom, the food in general is not bad but is not what I expected for the price that we pay, the final bill was around $450 with one bottle of wine. The food was average
