Service was excellent, the food is also great! The only bad is the location that is not good but just for the food i will go again.
Wow the food, service and entertainment was Great!! What fun!!
I would definitely recommend this place!!
Fun neighborhood place with good food and good service. Has outdoor seating, which is quieter than indoors. Cocktails good and full bar available. There is a belly dancer, who isnt actually a belly dancer, more of somebody wearing the costume and dancing a heavily hipped dance around the tables. Still, it was fun and entertaining. DJ was stuck in the 1980's, though, even though the people were ready to dance. He did take requests, but playing so much old old music pretty much cleared the place out. Too bad; we would have stayed later and had more drinks, but just couldn't. Get that music happening and this will be a great place!
If you want true greek neighborhodd food authencity......go to Taverna
Plaka on Cheshire Bridge rd.
'OPA is their national anthem while dining!
Have have shrimp appetizer to start and bar tender Brandon makes great
The most consistent Greek restaurant in Atlanta. The roast lamb is fall off the bone perfect as is the lemon chicken and the "simple" gyro plate is the best in Atlanta.
We almost always enjoy going here to get our "gyro fix." Not on this occasion. It was obvious that the gyro meat we were served had been on the spit far too long (probably because of lack of diners). It was charred and tough. On the positive side, the greek salad served with the gyro plate was farm-to-table fresh and delicious. Service was OK On this occasion, we would not have recommended the restaurant to a friend. We hope it was a one off
Everytime we go we have a wonderful experience.
Absolutely delicious food! I love the atmosphere and the service is great!
Great food and great service. Music was very loud inside but we sat on the covered patio so it didn’t bother us. Would definitely come back.
Great food and excellent service!
Wonderful service and atmosphere. Such a fun place and food was excellent! Great for big groups.
This was the 1st of this culinary experience for most of our party of 7. Our reservation was at 6, so they were not busy yet. Our waiter was very attentive. We had a range of drinks from the bar, and no one was disappointed. Since we were headed to a show, we skipped appetizers. Everyone’s food was delicious, even the veggies were well seasoned and no one left hungry. We will definitely be back.
This place was so fun! We came with a huge party of 20 and they were so accommodating the whole time! Awesome food, awesome experience!
Consistently wonderful in every way! Thank you
Taverna Plaka. Tonight was a special occasion but you make everyday dining just as special!
Overall it was just an ok experience. The service was ok as the food did take a long time to come out and the waitress forgot to put in 3 of the 4 appetizers. We sat outside under some kind of contraption that was riddled with big black ants that were crawling on me the entire evening. The food was good but it could have been better as it was just warm and not hot after waiting for such a long period of time.
I had so much fun interacting with the staff and the belly dancers! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and offered helpful suggestions. Great place for good food and entertainment.
The lamb chops are well seasoned and tender. I truly enjoyed my evening. I will definitely be back! Opa!
Great food and atmosphere! They had a live DJ and a belly dancer. So much fun. They throw napkins in the air as part of a celebration. Highly recommend.
Decent food, authentic and lots of it but the noise was deafening. We sat outside but still couldn’t hear each other. Check to see if there will be a band first! Great band, even still!
It was amazing!
What a fun place to go with friends. Napkin throwing, belly dancing and lots of fun staff (and diners, too)!
Loved my experience for my birthday here ! Was so fun and everyone had a great time. The waiters made our experience FUN
The food was okay in taste but pricey for the Greek and Italian offerings, the service was average but could have been better considering there were only two other couples were at the restaurant, maybe because it was Easter Sunday. I most likely would not visit again or recommend but wanted to try something different in my visit to Atlanta.
We love this place! We sat outside on the deck. Food and service consistently wonderful and Maddie (belly dancer) is fun and sweet. We enjoyed the DJ on Saturday evening, great music (he used to work at Limelight :) Highly recommend!
good food and fun environment! good place for a birthday
Took our daughter there for her 21st birthday and we had a blast. It was not too crowded at all, we sat at the tables on the covered patio and just had a blast. The service was fantastic, lots of energy everywhere, lots of OPA! shouting and celebrating!
The food was good, although I did not like the hummus (which was quite surprising for a Greek restaurant), but the Tzatziki was incredible. The Gyro's were moist and the plates were filled with lots of meat. The Lamb Shank was fantastic and the meat practically fell off the bone.
Wish I had tried some of the fish dishes, they looked fantastic. The belly dancer was quite creative and added to the fun.
Overall, we were thrilled with our choice of this restaurant to celebrate a great event! Thanks to everyone there for making it so special!
Service was very good, in part because of very few patrons on a weeknight.
Food is just OK, but with relatively high prices, it's not good value.
Went for a birthday and this was the perfect establishment. The staff was phenomenal! We had an early reservation so a few items that take longer to prepare we’re not ready yet, but the server was ready with great recommendations as subs. This place is perfect for large groups and they make you feel like part of the family.
High energy place with loud music and belly dance. Excellent service and our Gyro plate and Pisto Arni was fabulous . Overall a great place to be with friends for a fun night.
The waiters give so much energy and a great vibe that compliments the delicious food of Taverna Plaka. I love to come here with my family or friends.
Fun, lively place that on weekends, from my one experience, is a great place for any type of group celebration. Couples and smaller groups should be ready to match or at least appreciate the kitschy fun. We did and we had belly dancing good time.
Awesome Valentine’s date night! We both 100% enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the service! We’ll be back for more 😁
Food was good! I went for Valentine’s Day and the belly dancers were fun.
The food was good; the only issue is the service. Although it was Valentine’s Day, we went early so it wasn’t very crowded. Despite that, the service was SLOW! Our server went table to table and would walk right by without stopping. So I’d have to flag him down whenever we needed something. Then he’d say okay, but then he’d walk past us 1 or 2 more times and I’d remind him of what we needed. We were ready for the check and the same pattern continued and after a while he finally brought it. I looked down and he had written his own 22% gratuity! I just laughed because I assume they do this on holidays. Plus that’s about what I would have tipped anyway. But the idea that we’re forgotten about constantly and you write a $23 tip on there!? 😂 crazy...
Took my mom here for her birthday. She had a blast. Food was ridiculously tasty as well. The only thing that threw me for a loop was all the napkin throwing 😂. Wonderful place if you want great music and high energy wait staff.
Great food, great atmosphere, and a great experience! They had a belly dancer performing throughout the evening which was a nice change. If you’re looking for a quiet, low-key dinner, this is not the place. This was a fun place with great food!
Service was great! Food was luke warm but tasty. Drinks were good..We missed the belly dancers...
This place has great food and a very attentive and energetic staff.
Server was great. Great food. Food was out to us quickly. Atmosphere was good.
