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.
I’ve received a notice from you that I didn’t dine at Anassa last night as we had made a reservation
For 2, we were there & enjoyed a very lively dinner!! If I had to change my plans, I certainly would have cancelled, but we did certainly honor our reservation. Esther Ades
Salad was just some greens and a huge tomato cut in quarters. Booooooring.
Spanakopita was tasty.
Waiter was uninterested - maybe if we had ordered drinks or more pricey food he would have cared. Oh well...
There's not much around that neighborhood for real, sit down meal. Expensive for what it is.
Fabulous valentines dinner
Nice place. Actually makes a real Greek salad (there is no lettuce). Dressing is incredible. They seem to know what they're doing.... Been going for years
Delicious fresh fish. Appetizers also outstanding. Large portions
Great experience but the venue was loud music and people talking over the music
Food was good waitress wasn’t helpful
Went there for a business lunch. Conversation was excellent. The food was amazing. Worth going back for dinner.
Atmosphere was so nice, some menus were so delicious!!
AT Is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Unfortunately they ran out of the grilled red snapper for two so we ordered salads instead.
I will continue to have dinner at AT.
I love his restaurant so much that I have decided to comeback for Valentine's day with my wife. Food was great and service.
The waiter seemed annoyed when we asked questions, was not attentive, and stopped serving us without notification in the middle of the dining experience.
The Octopus Salad is the best ever. Wow! And yes, our server was magnificent! Thank you.
Good in general. Hostess at the door is not trained for receiving patrons as she seemed more interested in the phone calls. No greeting at all. Manager had to come to take care of the arriving patrons.
Service is very good and attentive.
A step above most neighborhood places. It never disappoints.
VERY VERY NOISY!!! Host was informed that it was a Birthday dinner. He did nothing! Did not remind waiter.
This is a very attractive restaurant, with a very comfortable feeling even when it is crowded. The menu is interesting, the food delicious, and the service prompt and unobtrusive. We had to wait a little while for out coffee at the end, but it did not diminish our enjoyment of the lunchtime meal.
Delicious as always. Fresh, authentic. Where do they get such good tomatoes in the middle dole of winter?
Superb authentic Mediterranean food, great service, good acoustics so you can hear each other talking, would highly recommend this fabulous Greek restaurant!!
Fabulous food ! Where else can you get a really red ripe delicious tomatoes in a salad in the winter???? Tender flavorful octopus, grilled fish to perfection and a generous pour for your drinks! Excellent wine list too.
I definitely enjoyed my birthday at Anassa Taverna. I was pleased that we were seated so quickly. The service and food were very good. They also had a live DJ. I will be back with my friends. It’s also very close to my job, so I anticipate bringing clients there as well.
Food was excellent! Nice ambiance and great service.
Delicious but pricey for a tavern!
Love the food and the service.
Consistently amazing Greek Cuisine with dual level dining, great music and comfortable and fun atmosphere.
I come to this restaurant often because the food is so fresh. I always have the Greek salad and the Loup de mar. It is so delicious that I sometimes have dreams about it. Just a lovely experience.
Everything was good except the octopus which is what I was looking forward to the most, unfortunately it was overdone and several pieces were rock hard from being charred. The other 3 dishes were good though!
