Obviously the choice of the business crowd. A definite return.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently AwesomeI really enjoy having business lunches at Kellari Taverna, because the quality of the food and service never disappoints. My guests are always impressed and enjoy the entire dining experience as much as I do. I especially like to recommend the grilled calamari and sardines - always winners!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Kellari's TavernaKellari's was recommended to us from the staff at the Algonquin Hotel where we were staying. It was an easy stroll down the street, allowing us the opportunity to take a walk after dinner.
Enjoyed everything the restuarant had to offer, ambiance, great food, attentive but not obtrusive waitstaff. We highly reccommend the Arctic Char.
We will definitely return.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWas A Great Find Before TheatreWe went on a Sat. nite and didn't wait more than 5 minutes for our table. We were offered a table that was a little cramped, and the hostess asked if we minded, I said yes, she said one minute and found us another table. So far so good. I had the price-fix menu, for 2 courses it was $31.95 and for 3 courses maybe $36.95? Don't hold me to the prices. I had a greek salad which was very good and a fairly large . I also had the mediterrean fish that came with a veg. It was very good. My husband wanted a shrimp cocktail and the same fish. He paid more for his dinner and would get the price fix next time. We both had dessert, he had sorbet, which was a nice amount and very refreshing. I had a custard something that was great. Highly recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGrilled LobsterWhile I love LOBSTER - and Kellari does a great job5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Again & AgainKellari Taverna on 44th b/ 5th & 6th in NYC is a regular choice for me. The Greek dishes are outstanding, and the service is attentive. This probably was my 15th time there, and I've always had a great meal, whether for lunch or dinner. Such a broad choice of fresh fish and other things! I suppose I should just stop counting, as I intend to continue to dine at Kellari on a regular basis when in NYC.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBravo Kellari TavernaHaving eaten in many Greek restaurants here & in Greece, I highly recommend Kellari Taverna. My lamb chops were amazing & the galactobuereko was sublime. The ambiance was wonderful. While the restaurant was filled on a Sat. night, the noise level was such that we could hear ourselves talk normally.
There was a shift change during our meal & that did disrupt the dessert service, but nothing terrible.
Thank you.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful but ExpensiveWe had a great meal but the service was OK and the meal was expensive. WIll definitley go again with hopes of better service.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat theatre alternativeAn outstanding restaurant to go before the theater . Located close to 5th Avenue on West 46th Street , it is a little outside the theater core of restaurants but it is well worth the inexpensive cab ride or five minute walk . Make sure you go when they offer the Price Fix lunch on Sundays [ $ 24.95 ] and it includes drink , 2 courses and dessert . I had the Salmon and it was great . Two thumbs up for this wonderful restaurant.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific overall experience!Terrific menu and great food!

We were a party of 6, for brunch, and selected Kellari because they have live jazz. Which was really terrific! The service was slow but the servers were very nice, and we had plenty of time. Apparently there was a private party at the rear of the restaurant that was keeping everyone very busy, and this also made it pretty noisy. But the food was very good and the prix fixe brunch was a great price.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMet some friends from outMet some friends from out of town for dinner.

I had the salmon tartare, a meal in itself and delicious. My husband had the watercress salad. Best looking watercress I ever saw. I had the whole striped bass, deboned - perfect.

The service was superb. I got there at 6:57 for a 6:45 reservation, and they seated us right away, and I was rushed for a broadway show at 8, so they rushed our food, recommended an excellent wine choice, were pleasant, friendly, and had us out of there on time. It was my mother's birthday, so they also comped my mom's dessert and gave us complementary dessert wine. The manager walked around asking diners if everything was okay. It is great and appreciated to get excellent service in NY nowadays... thank you!!! I will definitely recommend and continue to dine here.
