    Authentic Greek and American Cuisine

Small team, big heart

It's All Greek to Us

Well, almost. Eleni's Greek Taverna is a family-owned restaurant in Springfield, Virginia, that immerses customers in the experience of traveling and dining in Greece. Everyone from the customers to the staff is treated like family. We offer authentic Greek food with generous portions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. While the primary focus is Greek cuisine, we are committed to integrating American fare into the dining experience so that you can partake of the best of both worlds.

The Family that Cooks Together...

Founded by siblings Eleni Sokos and Bobby Sokos, restaurant professionals with over a decade of industry experience, Eleni's Greek Taverna is a place that puts emphasis on the three F's: Freshness, Family, and Friendliness. Eleni and Bobby are joined by their mother, Floor Manager Cathy Sokos, and their uncle, Kitchen Manager Vasili Haritos, both of whom bring an expansive amount of restraurant knowledge, as well as the shared sense of family that drives Eleni's Greek Taverna and that we invite you to be a part of.

  • “The authenticity of both the food and atmosphere were stellar”

    I've been looking all over the Northern Virginia area for a Greek restaurant that holds up to the ones that I experienced while vacationing in Kalamata; with Eleni's Greek Taverna, I think I may have finally found what I've been looking for.

  • “People come from all over Virginia for good reason”

    Hands down the best Greek food I've had. I live in Manassas, but have no problem taking the trip to Springfield when I am in the mood for some souvlaki.

“One of the delights of life is eating with friends; second to that is talking about eating. And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends.”
