Went Sunday evening 6pm. No issue getting a table. Service very good. Food very good. Portions very good size. Ask for table "on platform" away from windows - it is a little warmer there and less noisy though restaurant is far from quiet.

Thavma is a relatively small restaurant with a covered porch like eating area. I started with the Greek salad which was quite large and good. For my entrée I had the Sole and some boiled potatoes. Also a good simple dish. The service was excellent. I found it to be a little bit pricey for what you get, even though... More

This is a wonderful Greek restaurant with great food and a conducive atmosphere. Varied selection of tasty dishes. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. Try it once and you're likely to return.

I thought the fish was fresh and tasty, however, it's more of a cafeteria atmosphere so not recommended for a romantic dinner! I would go back for a casual event.

Food is good, some good variety. A little overpriced for this kind of establishment. When restaurant is busy service is suffering...

I've ordered out and eaten in this restaurant numerous times. The food is excellent! I love that it's byob. In the warmer months they have outside seating overlooking the fountain- it's probably the best restaurant in town.

Fair prices, good service, comfortable ambiance. Not worth going a distance, so for a very local experience with reasonable food and nice surroundings, Thavma works for friends, families, whatever!

Really like this place. Nice, friendly and helpful staff, High quality food that is consistently good at reasonable prices. I agree with the reviewer whose headline is "Dependable" as well. Eat here often and never have a complaint.

fresh ingredients and great service always from day one many years ago. This started off as the ITS GREEK TO ME but progressed very nicely after the owner departed from that chain which would not let him offer more variety
