My wife and I went here based on the reviews on trip advisor. Service was attentive and prompt. House white wine was good though not inexpensive. The combo appetizer platter was home made and fairly good. The lamb and also scallop entree also tasty though short of spectacular Prices high for location and food. Overall though good, would not rush... More

Don't think Greek deli here. This is a real restaurant with fine food and impeccable service. We were there on a busy day and were able to appreciate a well-run establishment. I can recommend the spanakopita (or spanatyropita), in other words, the Spinach pie. My husband enjoyed the ground lamb shish kebab. Our friends had scallops and moussaka. The homemade... More

My wife and I first tried the Taverna last year and have eaten here a number of times since. This is a real family run Greek place with excellent food and service. Most frequently we have both ordered the grilled salmon, as we did last night. It was tasty, of excellent quality and very fresh- very well prepared. The setting... More

We decided on the Greek Taverna, a long-time favorite of ours, for Valentine's day. As always, it was a great meal and a great experience. It began with a cordial welcome, a very friendly waiter, and a GREAT meal. In retirement, I'm trying to eat a bit more slowly and savor food, and the Greek Taverna is a good place... More

I just noticed that I haven't reviewed the Greek Taverna. When I had an office in McLean we ate here almost every week. Kristos and Popi transport you to a local tavern in sunny Santorini every time you visit. The food is universally wonderful. I am a particular fan of the fish. You can't go wrong with the trout on...

It has been quite awhile since my last trip to Greece, but this place has the right feel and taste to bring those memories back. We enjoyed trout and cod with a Santorini, a good white Greek wine--the only country that makes the wine list. The waiter's rehearsal of the specialties proved a bit mechanical and lengthy, but he then... More

Our group were returning after a late evening working. All we wanted was a beer along with something light and tasty. And that we got, quickly, easily and without and debate. Ideal.
