Went here for dinner on a quiet Monday night and sat at the bar. First of all, it's worth pointing out that this is a "fancy" Greek restaurant, meaning that the dishes are more "Greek inspired" than traditional. So it's different from home-cooked Greek food, or even Greek food that you'd get in most restaurants in Greece. If you want the latter, go to a different restaurant in Astoria. This place is more like an up-scale restaurant in a major Greek city, with Greek food "interpreted" in a more Western way. This approach can fail terribly, but MP Taverna managed to pull it off. We had the Octopus, Grandma's Meatballs, and Zucchini fritters as starters. The Octopus was very soft, but the portion was small. The other two starters were both excellent and very light and fluffy. These were all recognisably Greek inspired. For a main we shared the sausage and dumplings with fries on the side and a tomato salad. All were excellent. My only quibble was that everything had quite a lot of salt in it. I ended up drinking a litre of water when I got home: I was that thirsty. Prices were reasonable. I like the fact that the restaurant has craft beers on tap, but the menu isn't up to date on what's available and this wasn't clarified by the bar man. It would help is there was a blackboard with the current available beers. It seemed as though there were more taps than beers, which is a pity. The restaurant itself is elegant and pleasant. The only thing I didn't like was the TV. Why have TV? It's distracting and cheapens the atmosphere. This isn't a sport's bar.

First time visiting MP Taverna. Had the lamb burger which was excellent. The menu is not over complicated mostly grilled items with a Greek slant. Wine selection is OK. The beer selection is eclectic. Prices are reasonable. The space is nice with a large bar on the first floor. Will return

Stopped in here for brunch last weekend. Was positively surprised: place is nice, they had pitchers of well priced, well made mimosas, and excellent brunch food with some Greek influences.

It's always a pleasure going to MP Taverna, whether with family or friends. The restaurant has a bar "feel", but is a comfortable atmosphere for any meal. The service is wonderful and I have yet found a dish that I did not enjoy. Their souvlaki is my personal favorite - any meat will do justice. Plus, all their foods are fairly priced. Parking is never an issue as there is a separate lot on the side of the building with free valet service. Overall, this place will be my staple Greek restaurant for many years to come!
