Menu includes Mediterranean classics as a Greek salad, grilled lamb chops and a swordfish kebab. There's a raw bar, and daily specials that might include Seafood, Artic Char, Monkfish, Lamb Shank or slow-cooked pork shoulder.
I liked it. The food was fresh. The atmosphere was good. The service excellent. My only complaint is the prices. Will I go again? Yes.
Excellent food and service and COVID procedures. Makes you feel safe even sitting inside.
Everyone was very nice to us, and the food was delicious.
I’ve always loved this restaurant, and more so during he pandemic. I felt so safe and welcome in the space.
Love, love this restaurant, keep going back!! Consistently great food and service!
The dinner menu is now the lunch menu. Expensive for lunch.
This place always is a win delicious fresh food great vibe
Everything was great. We are outside so of course it was noisy as it's a busy street. The eggplant chips are outrageous and the greek salad dressing was the best I ever had.
We were the only ones at the restaurant at 11:30, so the first ones to place an order. But still had to wait 30 mins for 2 dishes: 2 omelettes. Sitting outside in the shade for 30 mins, it was chilly. As it is, you are on a street with lots of car traffic so the long wait was not pleasant.
So great first time dining here and would definitely dine again! Only complaint was the octopus app, it was overcooked and disappointing considered the sushi grade price but the other dishes (sea bass, lamb chops, and burger) were phenomenal! Baklava is also a must!
I felt comfortable that you follow covid-19 guidelines. Your opened windows provided the ventilation needed during these times. I understand your limited menu and hope that you will be able to resume your extensive dishes.
My mom and I wanted a delicious final meal before fasting for Yom Kippur and this meal did NOT disappoint. The food was delicious! We only ordered appetizers and they were great. We got the octopus, the shrimp saganaki, spinach pie, and the eggplant spread!
Great service and attention by staff. Accommodated a stroller. First class experience.
excellent service, and excellent food. very clean, and prompt.
Very warm and comfortable place. Managing COVID very professionally.
Wonderful food and service! Been here many times and it's always wonderful
Love this restaurant and the outdoor dining was excellent! Friendly waiters, delish food and great service!
Always a pleasure to dine here - cocktails refressing / hummus excellent / grilled sea bass outstanding! The dividers for the tables were just not that secured - they need some weights at the foot of the table to keep them from falling to the customers.
Walked out. Food not served for over an hour. Waitress was subpar and manager didn’t care.
The service was slow and it was quite noisy. I used to live this place, the food is still good though
Food was very good. Our table was right on the street , hence the ambience lower rating. But during this pandemic we were grateful to be out to dinner !
Service very good.
I have liked their food over the years and tolerate the mediocre and inconsistent service for that reason at this place.
This time, I asked to sit at the indoor table by the avenue (which was available) but was told it was “reserved”
They sat me at the outside seating which was fine by us but the way they stacked/placed tables SO CLOSE, With NO SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL, I could literally touch the other persons back wit my chair which made us highly uncomfortable to stay for dinner. We finished our drinks and left. By the way, the table inside was still available when we left!!! Very poor management and very average service. Will not return although I will miss their menu!
I was celebrating anniversary
Wasn’t happy with the table they gave us very bad location they had better tables available for such a special occasion . When I made the reservation I specified that I would be celebrating my anniversary, I guess they missed the note and had to reminded them but it was too late.
I was expecting a better experience since I spent $500 for dinner.
I had the grilled octopus starter and the grilled whole sea bass. Both dishes were incredible. The octopus in particular is a MUST!
Food not as ordered. Drinks not as ordered. Service terrible. Charged for bread
Great restaurant, the food and cocktails are delicious and the wine selection is very well curated. We will definitely be back!
Love this restaurant every single time! Great food, great service.
Lunch was delicious
Overall, an excellent experience and I highly recommend this restaurant. Food was very authentic, appetizers were fantastic and the waitstaff was outstanding. Food arrived perfectly timed and hot. Most of our large party really loved their entrees especially the whole, fresh fish. Only one or two were a little less enthusiastic about their entree. The specialty drinks were also a big hit. We will definitely return!
Everything from salad to fish to zucchini chips and tzatziki were fresh and tasty.
Best spinach pie - ever!
Quick service -- which e requested as we had an earl curtain
Delicious food. The feta is very good and so is their grilled fish. Highly recommend.
Excellent from start to finish! Delicious and great atmosphere.
This is one of my favorite places in the City. Everything is so fresh and delicious and I love the location.
We had a limited dining experience but everything was amazing.
I need to return to try additional options to give this superb restaurant the FULL 5 STARS IT DESERVES..🇬🇷
Overall good experience. The only odd thing was I asked the waiter for a side of eggs with my pancakes. He refused to place the order for me. Telling me they dont make scrambled eggs - even though “Eggs Any Style” is on their menu. I didn’t push the waiter just let it go but it rubbed me the wrong way - especially because it’s was Sunday Brunch.
The service was terrible. My breakfast omelet came out within a reasonable amount of time. I asked for mustard with my omelet.
My wife was served an omelet at the same time but she ordered bagel and lox.
we waited approximately at least 15-20 more minuted for my wife's breakfast..When it came along with the mustard that I had been waiting for. By that time I was finished with my breakfast.
This was my favorite Sunday restaurant for breakfast but it is steadily getting worse.
We ate at Avra Madison the night before. The ownership is the same.
Anassa Taverna seemed to run better when Roberto was the Maitre D.
It was very disappointing.
The food was amazing, while the noise level was perfect upstairs to where you can have real conversations. So glad my friend introduced me to Anassa!
We are regular customers at Anassa Taverna because of location and because we enjoy the food and service very much. There are a few good wines by the glass and a fairly large array by the bottle including some great Greek wines. The vegetable chips are great but require a long wait as made fresh. Always share a Greek salad while you wait. Daily specials are terrific and the fresh fish are usually our choice. Even the coffee meets our expectations.
Anassa Taverna does offer delivery in partnership with Postmates. Anassa Taverna also offers takeout which you can order by calling the restaurant at (212) 371-5200.
