Great food to choose from on the brunch menu and if the weather is nice you must sit on the patio, the atmosphere is great!

this place has a large outdoor patio to the back of the restaurant, where there seem to have more tables than inside. there is a wide variety of specialties (about 6 or 7 ways to have lamb, for example). my other half had the tasting platter, which presents a great way to try a number of different dishes at one time. you get a tremendous amount of good food for a reasonable price.

What a lovely surprise, to happen on the sign outside that stated, "The Garden is Open." We had been looking to sit outside on the lovely fall evening, but every Irish pub only had tables for 4 (full) or 2 (many unfilled). We had a party of 3 and were told repeatedly it was against the law to pull up a chair. So we walked on, until we came upon the sign, The Garden is Open.

Though none of us was in the mood for greek food, we were in the mood for sitting outside, enjoying the weather, and eating and drinking something. We were not disappointed. The server was out of a greek play . . . cute, dark, handsome, charming, and very attentive to the 50 - 60 year old women he was serving. He didn't seem daunted in the least that we weren't looking for a full dinner, but something we could share and nosh, and enjoy. We had a couple of appetizers that were perfect, beer and wine, and the great garden atmosphere.

This couldn't have been better. I would absolutely return again. Great job.

We've just discovered Taverna, and came 4 times ...with friends...already in 1 month. This is not a "gourmet" place, but a lovely dinner out. Very good food with lovely service at a good price. I love it for its simplicity and simple good food! ..Sit in the courtyard...Really a lovely surprise!

We hadn't been here in a few years and decided to take friends, remembering the good food and attentive wait staff. We had reservations on the patio and were seated immediately upon our arrival. We ordered the sampler appetizer which was tasty. For an entree, I had the lamb shank with orzo and it was delicious. The others had lamb dishes, as well, and liked their food. The wait staff was above average and were very patient as we were there 4 hours on a Saturday evening. We ususally don't take up a table in a restaurant for that long but the staff made us feel comfortable and told us not to rush even though the restaurant was crowded. We won't wait so long before going back.
