We had a 6:00 reservation and arrived at 5:45, but we were seated at a very tiny table. We asked for a bigger table but were told they were only for larger parties. Our table was so tiny you could only order 1 appetizer because along with the bread, you could not fit 2. In addition our server really rushed... More

My wife and I were in Paramus and didn't have reservations anywhere, when we remembered this gem of a restaurant in Fairfield. The grilled octopus is, perhaps, the best I've ever had - highly recommended. The bread is fantastic. We also had the chopped salad and chicken souvlaki (on prior visits we've had the filet and sea bass [I believe].... More

On a negative side poorly trained, very inexperienced server was a poor match with... More

A wonderful Greek dinner with the hubby.. I have enjoyed lunch here a couple of times, but what I want to review is our dinner. Came here with the hubby since I was craving Greek food, restaurant was a little packed but we were seated pretty quick. Tables are a little closer than I like and navigating between them can...

After going to this Greek restaurant, you won't want to go anywhere else for Greek Food. It is just mouthwateringly delicious! It is food you will remember for a long time. The service is also excellent. If you go on the weekend make an early reservation because many of the tables are small and close together, and you will probably... More

Taverna Mykonos is perhaps the best Greek restaurant we have ever been to. Owned & operated by father (Peter) & son (Nick) who also own upscale Oceanos Sea Food restaurant in Fair Lawn, NJ. The food recuperation, Service & decor make this a winner. Full bar & valet parking on site. The only drawback here is pricing which is quite... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Mykonos. Our server was knowledgable, friendly and very helpful with good suggestions especially regarding wine choices. We had Greek sausage with sautéed kale and tomato. It was excellent as were my sautéed soft shell crabs in a wonderful lemon sauce. My husband had lamb chops. The portion was very generous. He said they were... More
