Axia is always on Point! The service is welcoming and friendly. There is always sufficient staff support. The food is fresh, delicious and properly prepared the way you ask for it. The restaurant decor is stylish, and to the times. You can always count on having a tremendous selection of amazing wines, and they stock the vintages shown on the... More

Axia, a lively spot in sleek and stylish quarters in downtown Tenafly offers an extensive menu of Greek specialities. Their excellent selection of seafood can be prepared simply grilled, and their lamb is wonderful. Nice bread is served, and the Horiatiki (Greek salad) is a good way to begin the meal. Service is pleasant and efficient, and the prices are... More

Had a very disappointing dinner with friends. We were on the second floor so it is obvious that the waiters were too lazy to get our food on time. We were presented with cold dry fish and lamb chops. My friend and I ordered red snapper and the waitress waited until she bought the other 3 entrees to tell her... More

Best restaurant in Tenafly but it is pricy. Excellent wine list. Some evenings they have music. The menu has good variety and everything is tasty and well cooked. When we lived in this area we went here often. You should, too!

Excellent food, somewhat diminished by slow service. We were a group of seven and that was perhaps the reason, but I still highly recommend it!

Great food, nice service at a reasonable price -- what's bad? Had the free-range chicken and my companion had salmon -- both superb, as was the eggplant appetizer.

When a restaurant is at the higher end, it is not just the quality of the food that makes the meal, but also the kind of service one receives. The wonderful variety and mastery of the Greek food served here is matched by the staff's efficiency, thoughtfulness and outright friendliness. The owner was serving behind the bar the other night,... More
