The food was excellent, fresh seafood, cocktails were great, the staff extremely attentive. Enough room between tables, it seems they’re following all safety measures for Covid-19.

Went to Oniro for date night. It was a largely average experience. One room is really pretty and cozy, the other room that we ate in had more of a cafeteria feel. Server forgot our side dish, never showed up. Not bad not great just ok

The food and atmosphere is exceptional. However the wait staff seems to be unexperienced and young. This restaurant really needs waiters that are skilled and knowledgeable about how to greet/serve/satisfy the needs of their patrons. If the food wasn't so good, I'd probably skip this place for better service elsewhere.

Amazing experience! From the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out everything was phenomenal. We ordered the salad with green peppers, tomatoes, and feta, the mussels in red sauce, grilled salmon and filet mignon. Delicious! For dessert we ordered the chocolate soufflé and baklava. Absolutely amazing. We can’t wait to go back! Thank you for contributing to me and my husband having such a fantastic date night!

My fiancé and I had dinner at Oniro Taverna for Valentines Day. Couldn’t have been a better meal. We have never been and thought it was worth a try. To start, we were seated right away at a cozy table with lucite dividers that almost seemed invisible. Loved that we can see the open kitchen! The manager could not have been nicer to us. The staff amazing and I can’t forget to mention the food. All perfect. We will definitely be back! If you like Mediterranean food, you must try out Oniro Taverna!!

Bought our nieces and nephew with us this time.
My nephew who does not eat stuffed grape leaves particularly enjoyed these.
My niece looked forward to and polished off a nice sized bowl of the lemon chicken soup and compared it to her friend's home made version.
My other niece enjoyed a glass of the dry Santorini white wine with me.
There were no left overs despite 6 appetizers and 4 entrees and desert, not to mention the after dinner glass of Samos.
It was an excellent family night out with spot on service as usual.

The service is consistently courteous and attentive.
We can’t seem to not order the spanakopita and grape leaves.
But we did try the sea bass for two and this was indeed our favorite fish for two so far. The waiter split the fish for us making sure to include the sauce with the capers.
It was scrumptious!
No leftovers!
Try the Samos desert wine! It is a really nice finish.

The service is always attentive and courteous.
While the food has always been excellent, recently it has moved to “Over the Top”!.
We always do the Spanakopita but added the stuffed grape leaves this time and they were by far the best we have ever tasted.
The sauce with the black ink pasta is equally impossible to explain how delicious it is. Never tasted anything so good!
Did the red fish for two and it was prepared perfectly.
All this matched quite well with a dry white wine from Santorini!
Ek Mek is still our go to desert.
Bravo!

Everything was excellent, service, food ambiance. My friend & I were scheduled to travel to Greece but was cancelled to the pandemic. Oniro transported us to Greece with the music, beautiful designed restaurant and excellent food. We shared the grilled octopus and it was perfectly cooked, extremely tender. I had a beautiful salad with the largest grilled shrimp I ever saw. It was rich with goat cheese and walnuts with a tasty dressing. My friend had lamb chop and could not stop raving. We topped it off with baklava served with fresh fruit and lemon sorbet. This was a hearty piece of baklava. I am looking forward to return with my family. I highly recommend

This is not the first time I have been to Oniro. We continue to go back because the food is excellent and the people are very nice. If you don't want to dine in they have amazing family platter deals for take out. We got all three family platters for New Years Eve and everyone loved the food.

Went for lunch. The place was immaculately clean! Staff was very friendly and the server was great. All the food came out on time and at the right temperature. Everything was delicious. Ordered off their lunch pre-fix menu and thought it was a great value for the food that was included. Will definitely be going back again.

Perfect for a special occasion. We had New Year’s Eve dinner here and the host gave us a choice of three different table to sit at. Meal wasn’t rushed in between courses. Loved the Greek music in the background. We had a very nice eve dinner.
