A warm welcoming staff awaits. The menu is varied and the is quite tasty. Brunch is an enjoyable dining experience and service is attentive and commendable.
Great midtown and theater area restaurant. Varied menu of authentic Greek dishes with something for everyone at appealing prices. Crowded and a bit noisy until theater patrons leave then much more relaxed. Staff is attentive and accommodating. We’ve eaten here three times and always enjoyed the experience.
Great food and service, everything fresh, delicious with generous portions. They know how to handle a pre-theater crowd.
Great food and service. If you love Greek food, Dafni is a wonderful find and is a very convenient location to the Theatre District. Great place.

Good Ambience, Not expensive, service is little slow if you are coming for a Lunch on a weekday you expect things to serve little quickly
The service awful and the food worse. They could care less. Went pre-theater and food was awful.
I was worried that because of the location, the food would be par and over priced. It was a great meal and service was quick. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
We've been coming here for years. This is our go-to restaurant when seeing a show. Food is delicious, service is spot on. A perennial favorite.
Everything went so smoothly and dinner was delicious
I have been to Greece and I love their food, but my experience at the tavern was disappointing. Food was served cold and the octopus had to be grilled on dirty, burned grill. It was not good at all.
The main dish, sea bass was tasty but served cold. The vegetable that was served with it was not seasoned at all. WILL not go back.
Dessert, traditional Greek walnut cake... had a potential, but it was defiantly not fresh, served straight from a refrigerator, way too cold. And it came with the whip cream from the can.. really Greece people serve it this way??? Overall, very disappointing.
We have been eating at this restaurant for many years. Love their daily soups and fresh fish. However, this visit was one of the worst experiences we have had at any restaurant. After ordering our usual favorites, we waited more than an hour for our food. Other patrons came, were served and left; we sat. We did complain. It did not speed up the service. Our order was our usual. The food, when it came, was delicious. The management barely apologized, made no effort to compensate us as other establishments do. We were surprised at that.
We visited Dafni to celebrate my wife's birthday. Excellent Greek dishes! Fantastic service and experience! We will return.
Fast service and good food. Excellent value
I was so disappointed in the food. The salad was terrible, the lemon soup was enjoyed by my family, the shrimp ok and the gyro was passable. Out of the 5 of us who ate there we were all disappointed and would never recommend the restaurant. Much better Greek style restaurants in the theater district.
The server was lovely and the food come on time.
It was annoying that the server had a few friends at a table and they were using their phones on speaker for some reason or another...not pleasant for other diners.
Food was very tasty. Tight spacing, but typical for times square.
Wonderful experience. Great food and exceptional service. The waiter was perfect - not at all rushed and seemed to know instinctively when we were ready to place our order or needed something. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Perfect pre theatre!
Good food, great value
always reliable and this time it was so quiet so that it was very relaxing as well. generous portions at fair prices and much to choose from.
The food is always consistently good. I recommend starting your meal with the 3 spreads. Vegetable moussaka was tasty. Grilled octopus was cooked perfectly—not at all rubbery. Staff is friendly and attentive.
I highly recommend Dafni if you’re looking for a reasonably priced pre-theater restaurant.
Definitely need a reservation because it is a great place to eat. They accommodated us earlier than our reservation time. Service was prompt and kind. Portions were huge! Loved the appetizers which were very filling. Didn’t feel rushed even though we had a show to see. Wished I could have taken a doggie bag with us.
Excellent value/service in the Theater District!
I've been on this block a thousand times and never noticed this place. First time there- and with a large group. Everything was excellent. Tasteful portions good in size and service were great, even for our group of 8. Great menu options. The table was ready when we even arrived early. Host/server also excellent. I believe named Paul. Will go back.
Pre theater dinner.
The food was great!
Always love coming here when we need to find a good spot to eat in Times Square. Friendly staff, delicious food. It’s a little oasis in the middle of a crazy area.
One of my favorite restaurants. A hidden gem. Delicious food, the pastiches is my favorite of all.
Food was delicious. Staff was at tentative.
always a wonderful experience....from the service to the food...
Not great not bad
Tasty food, nice decor, attentive and courteous service. Clean environment. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal!
The pasticio was very peppered. That is NOT how it is supposed to be.
Dafni Greek Taverna is great. I was a little disappointed Greek salad with Gyro meat. I felt like the salad was just o.k.
But, we will eat there again!
Lamb shank fell off the bone.
This restaurant was recommended and was very disappointing.Had a 5:30 reservation and when we got there restaurant was a quarter full. The majority of the remaining tables had reserved signs on them. When the host went to seat us it was a table right by the door. The tables were barely 3” apart. I asked for a table further away from door and he said they were reserved. I said that we had a reservation but said no!!! Host was also our waiter and not courteous. Food was was very average. Would not go back
Wonderful food, large portions and excellent waitstaff. We would definitely go back.
