Having East Coast origins, when I think of Greek food, I think of my many Greek diner experiences. And when I think back to those, I remember wondering how they could possibly offer all the different dishes on those gigantic (things do look much bigger when you're a kid) menus? It was then I learned that food could be frozen.... More

Outstanding Greek food in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Tony is delightful. The Taramasalata dip was so good I saved some for dessert! (the fellow at the next table commented that it MUST contain some "addictive agent"). The house specialty Lamb Tenderloin was so good I ordered it again when we returned to the restaurant 5 days later!!!

We went to Taverna Tony for lunch with a group of eight. We elected to dine family style, which eliminated the drama of ordering as a group. The food was fabulous, and as other reviewers have noted, this is one of the finest Greek Restaurants anywhere. The service was particularly notable, with every attention to detail. We dined, on a...

Food and atmosphere was great. Waiter was not. A bit gruff and mixed up our order and drinks. We asked for more bread and spread and he made a comment that people fill up on that instead of entrees......never got our bread. Asked for a gin & tonic. Got a wine spritzer.. I would go back hoping to get a... More

I was recommended to this Greek restaurant by a Greek friend about 6 years ago. I had low expectations since located in the heart of Malibu, CA. Not exactly where I would expect to have a great Greek meal. Well I was pleasantly surprised. From the appetizers, grilled octopus, kalamari, taramosalata,to the main meal, rack of lamb, whole bass fish,... More

This is a very authentic place in a very special location. The owner, Tony, is a unique personality who is an absolute perfectionist. All the dishes are pure greek cuisine but with Tony's special touch which makes it fly above whatever you can find on this planet. The quality of the ingredients is not just what you can buy around,... More

I'd suggest trying this place out at lunch rather than dinner. Dinner always has the staff catering to the notables (e.g. pop tarts, affluent) and you might get mediocre service. Lunch has most of the same menu at a lesser price. The lamb is always excellent. The staff seems to be a stopping point on to their real vocations, acting.... More

Taverna Tony has been a family favorite since I was a child. Everything they have is amazing, the restaurant itself is beautiful and relaxing, the service is... ok. Delicious food and a fun atmosphere.

Wonderful selections. Being Greek myself, I didn't think the moussaka was as good as it should be. Beautiful patio. I thought the prices a bit high for lunch.
