wonderful classic Greek restaurant with perfectly prepared dishes. The owner is almost always there, and makes sure that everything is running well. It was so good, we went back there a second time on our trip to Tenafly.

Everything about this place is great. They go out of the way to make everyone feel special and like family. If something isn't right they fix it with no questions asked. And they took the time to answer any questions we had.

Sophisticated & Yummy Mediterranean food. Such an upscale, cozy space with flattering light and good acoustics. Servers aim to please. Kitchen is superb. Bar is happening and there's a private room for groups upstairs. Portions are ample but not large. Plenty of parking, warm welcomes...More

We returned to Axia Taverna because the food is wonderful. However, on Saturday evening the service was almost non-existent. We waited a long time before the waiter acknowledged that we were there; then an additional (at least) 15 minutes for our drink order to arrive....More
