It was fun and had good was great. There was a DJ and I felt the music was too loud at times. It was difficult to carry on a conversation, I wish I would have asked to be seated outside. Otherwise it was a great experience.

Restaurant seems to be a great place for large parties. There is music and belly dancing.
For couples dining.
I’d say it’s average. The servers were very attentive. But the food was just average.

Great food My friend had the lamb shank which was excellent. I has the lamb kabobs which were good too but the lamb shank was better. We had the octopus which came with the most delicious hummus I’ve ever had. Will definitely go back again and highly recommend it

Had a great time at a birthday party however compared to the last time I visited it wasn’t as happening. This is to be expected considering I went on a Wednesday and last time on a Friday. On weekdays the music is played off a playlist so it isn’t as fun. However, we thoroughly enjoyed dancing on tables and imitating the belly dancers fun moves!

This place is too much fun and not to be missed! The food was excellent. The service was just what you need, not pushy and the drinks were never left empty. If you want something a little unexpected then this is your place. It you want quiet and low key then take a pass.

Excellent Greek choices reasonably priced for the Buckhead area. I mentioned on my reservation 2 in our party are gluten sensitive and the waiter knew exactly what we could or could not have. Very festive atmosphere even on a Sunday night.

I had sooo much fun there celebrating my birthday! The server was a little slow, as it seemed like he was taking care of every table in the restaurant, but he was so friendly and fun. The environment is lively and energetic and it's the perfect place to let loose and have a great time!

When I'm in the mood for a great time and amazing food Taverna is my favorite spot to unwind, party and fill my belly. The customer service is top notch from the time you enter to when you leave. The music is and entertainment is always fun and I s fun and I pretty much order the Lamb Chops every time I come. One of my favorite places in Atlanta.

The food alone is enough to have you keep coming back. Everything was delicious. The yaiyai chicken is out of this world. The service is very friendly and good. This is a must have place.

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).

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.
