    I have dined at this restaurant for over 10 years. Food & Service is always excellent. I had the Branzino special this time, it was cooked perfectly. The Gyro Souvlaki Platters are always really good. Prices have go up but that is expected.

    Food is very good, classic dishes are delivered well and specials are creative. Small dishes are generously portioned for sharing. Staff is friendly and guide well through menu choices, but it’s sometimes hard to get attention after being served.

    Village Taverna is one of my favorite restaurants, I'm vegetarian and I can always find something delicious to eat there. My omnivore friends can also find good food. The menu is varied and they have lots of daily specials.

    Restaurant space was a lot nicer than what one might expect from the outside, with high ceilings and spacious set up of tables. We had limited time (one hour) for our dinner due to theatre tickets and based on few reviews were intrepid; but the waiter was outstanding and made sure we were able to accomplish that! We had gyro platter, grilled chicken platter and the organic chicken special. Everyone enjoyed their food and the portions were so generous that two of us had leftovers for another meal. It’s a restaurant worth keeping in the back pocket for whenever we’re in the neighborhood.

    Excellent opportunity to introduce a friend to Greek wines. I loved that they had several Assyrtiko’s to choose from. I had a lovely chat with Yanni at the fish display, and our waiter Spyros was great. Our fish (branzino/lavraki) was beautifully prepared and too much to eat in one sitting. My only very minor criticism was that the tomatoes in the Horyartiki Greek Salad were a bit underripe, but on the whole, the food was excellent.

    My husband and I with our family guests enjoyed our dinner here. Overall welcoming and nice interior space, gave me a corner table as requested since we had a little one with us. Good Greek wine selection which we enjoyed over our meal. Menu offering has something for everyone. Everything was very flavorful and authentic, nice plating and generous portions from appetizers to salads and main entrees we ordered. We shall return to dine here, especially with family & friends.
