authentic Greek taverna foodbest Greek food I've had in the city and I visit the Greek islands every summer. Very fresh, delicious.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMReal Greek foodThis little place has fab food and awesome service.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDinnerDinner was good, surprised to see menu lacked the "moussaka" dish.
Service is friendly albeit a little slow. Price is ok for New York and the wine selection of Greek wines quite diverse.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, excellentExcellent food, excellent service, only problem was the noise level.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMvery tastyFriends and I shared the meze platter, the grilled vegetables, and the lamb triangles in phyllo. All were tasty and delicious, with seasoning and freshness that elevated them above the typical corner Greek place fare.
Only disappointment was their baklava which we liked but didn't love. It wasn't the sticky sweet moist standby we expected, rather one layer of filling with phyllo on top. Definitely will be back!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI don't want to tell you.......about this place, because then you'll go there and it will be harder for me to get a table. But I will. Excellently prepared, fresh Greek food, from simple to creative. I loved every morsel I put in my mouth from the simple butter beans with tomato and feta to the succulent pork tenderloin. Oh, and the bowl of jordan almonds upon departure was just the clincher that they've got me hooked.
My only complaint is the uncomfortable chairs, and even in spite of them I will be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice placethe food was yummy esp the lentil soup. lamb sandwich was delicious. staff was wonderful. we sat and sat without feeling hurried.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstandingThis small, sweet restaurant serves the finest Greek food I have ever had (I've had a lot). Equally important, the entire culture of the restaurant clearly communicates: "we care about providing you an excellent experience", from the outstanding food, terrific and friendly service, and very pleasant ambience. I strongly recommend this restaurant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Greek deliciousnessMy girl friends and I come here once every three months or so for a reunion. We studied abroad together in Greece so naturally gravitated toward a taverna for this occasion. Snack is consistently delicious and we always look forward to going there! The lamb stifado, zucchini fritters, tzatziki, horta, greek salad, spanikopita, saganaki and veal meatballs are our favorite dishes. So... pretty much the whole menu! Thank you, Snack!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Greek FoodSecond time we've been here for dinner. Maybe the best Greek food we've had in the city. Amazing for an unheralded place on a quiet West Village street. Service is friendly, decor is rustic. We had the saganaki, mixed appetizer plate, Branzino, roast chicken, vegetarian stuffed sweet red pepper, roast cod, all outstanding, with perfectly balanced seasonings and sides. We hated for the meal to end, but we were so full! Just be aware that its a relatively small space and the noise level can get a bit loud (though not earsplitting) when it's full.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great, exceptEverything was great, except the portions were really small...4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxed uberCompetent ServiceThough a 'tight fit,' waitstaff was so well coordinated & organized one never felt 'squished.' I was impressed that the greeter took my coat & hung it so that it was out of the way & so that I was able to sit down without being overwhelmed by my winter coat which would've blocked waiter access to the tables. After we (a party of three, i.e., my husband and me and our 25-yr old son) finished, we lingered & talked (since we'd come in from Philly & our son from Conn. to have a relaxed hour to visit & reconnect. Finally, I asked for the bill. The gentleman (the same who'd hung my coat) said he'd not presented the bill earlier 'cause he wanted us to feel relaxed, not harried. We were so very grateful for that elegant vibe. + FAB FOOD.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time. Large partyHad a great time. Large party table was ready for us and the service was wondeful.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Greek "small plates."Delicious Greek "small plates." A great meal for people who like to share and try a lot of different dishes.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIt gets very noisy later inIt gets very noisy later in evening and on weekends I think. I was there early on a Tuesday night when there were very few diners--so not noisy then.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
