Nice atmosphere. Felt like a yaya Greek grand mom was cooking in the kitchen for us. Comfortab,e seating. Not too busy so dining room was nice and quiet good for a family dinner where you can hear each other speaking.

Great staff and great service. The food is prepared well, with great flavors and many choices. Wine list is great and the location is easy to find and attractive on the inside.

The traditional warm wrapped Gyro was outstanding and the lunch meal came with crispy french fries. I was just in NYC and had a Gyro there. This was just as good!

We visited this restaurant for lunch and had a very nice meal. You can order from a small lunch menu or from the full menu. We ordered sandwiches from the lunch menu. The turkey and swiss was really fresh with a good amount of turkey and crispy lettuce and juicy tomato slices. Fries were hot, thin and tasty. The cup... More

100% cage free (Free-range) chicken served, no by-products, antibiotics, hormones no msg, etc etc. Sandwiches served both on texas toast and Pita bread style. The grilled pita sandwiches are fantastic. Choice includes a full or half order. Each with a side of French Fries, Small (handfull) salad, or FANTASTIC soup. Choose the cabbage soup if that is an option (YUM!).

My friend was intrigued by the meditteranean menu. I've been there b4, and they no longer have the dish I used to like. Their menu doesnt appeal to me, so I only went so she could try it. The food wad not impressive. We arrived a little after seven on a Thursday and sat outside, which was beautiful. We had... More

We remember you well. Your order went to the kitchen at 7:20 and you checked out at 8:20. Our restaurant was closed at 8 pm as it always does each and every Thursday - and yet you refused to leave. You lingered over a salad for 1 full hour. When you came in you were told that we were closing... More

First of all....wow! I couldn't find a single thing wrong about any of the food we had. Started off with hummus app and it was very fresh and homemade. Nice soft warm pita bread. Thought I would fill up on that before our meals came. Dinner salad was nice with very rich flavorful dressing. Now the best part, the main... More

I love a good gyro sandwich and theirs did not disappoint me - it's carved off the rotisserie cooked hunk of gyro meat & spice mixture. Good tzaziki sauce, but if you want to give their "Diablo" sauce a try - get it on the side - to call it HOT would be an understatement. And their fries that accompany... More

We visited Taverna Manos last night with another couple. From beginning to end the food was outstanding! Don't miss the flaming cheese or dessert! Portions are easily shareable! Service was flawless!

My family and I went here for a lunch one day. The food was really good, hot, fresh, and delish. The decor is nice, somewhat authentic. I liked the rear patio that was really inviting and beautiful.
