MP Taverna - Irvington
MP Taverna’s accessible menu brings Psilakis’ Greek fare into the American culinary lexicon and is another step towards the chef’s goal of putting Greek cuisine on the culinary main stage. “The memories I have of cooking with my family are the inspiration for my restaurants, and I hope my guests create their own memories through their dining experiences at MP Taverna,” says Chef Michael Psilakis. “I want MP Taverna to be a destination for more than just a celebratory meal; a place that conjures the familiarity of your dining room table at home.”
We have been to MP Taverna twice in the last few months and thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambiance bpth times!
The was great as usual but very long to get our food. We were at a table the they was absolutely no lighting . Service was very good .
The food, service and atmosphere at MP is always good. Portion sizes are ample. My only complaint with MP are the wine prices. For a white wine, the opening price is $40 - outrageous in my book.
Just a great meal!
We really enjoyed this Restaurant. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
Food excellent service good
Ok - nothing extraordinary. Service used to be better. We waited a long time for our food .
Loved everything about MP Taverna. Food and service were excellent.
Outstanding service and food
Generally a good experience. We hadn’t been to the restaurant in close to a year.
Waiter was a bit “gruff”, mumbled, we all had a difficult time understanding him.
One of us ordered a 1/2 glass white wine, another a glass of red wine. They were both the same quantity??? The woman who sat us happened to walk by and we inquired about the amount of wine. She said it was a mistake, would only charge for 1/2 glass.
My husband ordered a martini which was served in a champagne glass, not flute thank goodness, but strange.
Three of us ordered Dorado fillet. We were not told about the many small bones. A warning would have been helpful since I did slightly choke! At that point I didn’t want to eat anymore.
Not rushing to go back anytime soon.
I would definitely go back. The ambiance was great and the staff was very friendly and made sure we enjoyed the food. They gave us recommendations also that turned out to be great. The sweet potato cake was amazing!
Food is always delicious ( overpriced but great ) service bit slow, nice atmosphere, will recommend.
The food was delectable !
Meeting Michael Psilakis was an added bonus.
Can it wait to go again!!
Although expensive, the food is authentic and fresh.
Great fresh Mediterranean cuisine. Welcoming and professional staff. Great to see the Chef and Owners out accommodating guests.
The octopus, mixed grill and Branzino were all a hit. Don’t skip the “smash fries”, Greek Salad or Fried Calamari. Fresh, delicious and generous portions.
The best menu and meal portions for Restaurant week! We were pleasantly surprised and we didn’t leave hungry. Everything was delish! Kudos to the Chef!! We will be back!
The food was good but the service was horrible. The waiter was not welcoming at all and was borderline rude. We ordered a bottle of wine and were brought a different bottle - with no explanation at all other than they were out of stock of our preference and that the new one was the same price. Our main dishes were brought out while the appetizers were still on the table - we had to request that they clear our plates. When we ordered gelato to share, we were given large flat plates and soup spoons. I would not recommend this restaurant.
One of our favorite places to have dinner. Food is always fresh and delicious
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The main dining room was smoky from the cooking.
Great! Waiter was good as was food.
I think we visit MP Taverna more than any restaurant. Always delicious. It was crowded Friday and it may have been short staffed, but that didn’t prevent anything from being good. You could see everybody pitching in and our server just absorbed the crowd and pleasantly took care of business. Our choices of grilled fish and the lemon chicken are consistently perfectly prepared. I’m sure we’ll be heading there again soon.
Excellent food and service, as usual. Love the lemon chicken and the dumplings. Unfortunately the dining room was very smokey tonight, not sure why but quite unpleasant. Other than that a+.
Very nice dinner with friends, and service was good. Was surprised to see MP himself at the restaurant.
Amazing food! Enough said.
Great service and food.
I expected authentic Greek and it has turned into a sort of Mediterranean cuisine. The lamb chops were too fatty. The tzatziki was more of a yoghurt dip.
Great food. Excellent service. Mezzes are fantastic
Cozy and warm ambience with friendly service. Nice way to spend an evening dining with friends.
Our first ever disappointing meal at MP Taverna — 100% due to service. The food was on point as usual. However, the service was horrible. The server clearly didn’t want to be there.
The place was moderately busy with good energy in the atmosphere. The food was as good as we remembered it to be, the last time we dined there, about a year ago. The octopus and the mussels that we had as appetizers were excellent. 2 of us had the Halibut special and both enjoyed their dish. Another had the grilled Bronzino. I had the grilled lamb chops and they were cooked perfectly. The wine list had reasonably priced selections of white and red wines. Overall, we were pleased that we chose to dine at MP Taverna. The only negative was that our server was not very friendly. Not once did he smile while he served us.
Love this restaurant.
Food was delicious. We shared the Octopus and the Branzino. Yummy.
They really know their way around fish! Whether simply grilled or prepared more elaborately, their fish is absolutely delicious!
My favorite restaurant. Food is wonderful as is the service and ambience. I’ve never had a bad meal and perfect location.
The foods were great! We will definitely come back! The octopus was especially superior.
Love this place! Always great and consistent food and service. Would be even better if there was more of a diverse clientele in different age groups.
We brought two friends who were never here before. They each finished big appetizer and full entree. Practically scraped the plate.As good as any review!
The good was amazing, waitress was awesome and service was outstanding. I could not ask for more
Great good, great service, great value! Definitely will be back!
The only complaint was that our food took way too long to come out
