This place is legendary. The service, food, energy, and value are top notch. It honestly puts alot of other Mediterranean places to shame in the Atlanta area.

Our waiter was awesome!
Appetizer #1: The spanakopita was tough and chewy, like old dough.
Appetizer #2: The fried calamari was perfect!
Appetizer #3: The fresh hummus was the best I've ever had.
Meal #1: The lamb shank had a wonderful flavor; however, it was sorely lacking of meat. The vegetables were cooked to perfection.
Meal #2: The lamb tenderloin was overly dry and the portion was more inline for a petite woman, not a man. The corn souffle was delicious.
Meal #3: The moussaka was savory.
Meal #4: The chicken kabobs were seasoned beautifully.
Dessert #1: The tiramisu tasted okay, but was not made with the traditional ladyfingers.
Dessert #2: The walnut cake was the best I've ever had.
Dessert #3: The baklava was perfection!

Belly dancer was good and service great. I really loved the food. Try the salmon dip and the fresh hummus was great. Pita triangles were warm and soft. My lambchops were great. Stuffed chicken was too dry to eat but they took it off the bill.

They treated my son great (it was his 21st bday).

My mom wanted Greek for her birthday. I had been here before and enjoyed myself. By the time we left she had such a great time she could not stop talking about it.

Food is excellent, wait service is excellent and the entertainment by Patricia the belly dancer was outstanding. This was our second time eating at Plaka Tavern and they did not disappoint. I brought my brother and a friend this time and definitely plan to return!

Overall the restaurant was fun and the food was great. However, the music was too loud and it was very hard to have a conversation. The service was terrible. Our server was all over the restaurant chatting to every table. We kept having to wave him over or ask other servers to get him for us. This made the experience frustrating and less enjoyable. If we return, will likely sit outside on deck.

What a disappointment! We were tho king it was going to be sn authentic Greek experience! It started out fine and then quickly turned into a ghetto club atmosphere. The music was so loud that you couldn’t talk over dinner, children running around dancing and yelling. My birthday dinner was not enjoyable and after a very mediocre meal we just wanted to leave. I am so sorry that I spent my birthday there and will never go back.

Birthday. Fun atmosphere. Loud (almost too loud) when the belly dancer come out.
Food was just awful. Gyro.... dried out and soooo salty!
Salmon dinner...... could have picked up the salmon and slapped it on the table. Dry and terribly over done!
Husband had lamb shank. No flavor, string beans coated w garlic. Mashed were good
Needs huge improvement in the food department.

Well, everyone seemed to have fun except us. Go for belly dancing and if you want a place that is so noisy that you don’t have to talk to anyone. Was served octopus that was inedible but everyone around us seemed happy with their food.

Opal! We had a great time for my birthday since it was a lively, energetic environment. I had a party of 18 which they accommodated but with only 1 waitress, who we had to track down more than a few times. That's the reason I can't give it 5 stars. Definitely would recommend for a celebration event with friends or family.

We’ve eaten out in the deck in the summer but this was out 1st time eating inside. Not quite the same atmosphere, but it was fairly empty at 7pm on. Friday. As we were paying, 2 large groups arrived, so it may just be a later crowd place.
As always, the food was amazing!!! This place never disappoints! Staff is always warm and friendly. Highly recommend!!
