Enjoyed Kefi for a date night on valentine's day .
It was our first time at this restaurant and it was absolutely delicious. We had the potato salad, the sea bass and the lamb chops and it was full of flavor cooked perfectly.
Great service and good drinks as well!
I can’t wait to come back.
I always enjoy a meal at Kefi and recommend it often. An UWS gem!
I didn't realize how large Kefi was! I was seated immediately, and was allowed to wait for my friend to arrive at my table (it's always annoying to have to wait for the whole party to get seated for a reservation). We were seated downstairs, which was equally as busy as it was upstairs and the atmosphere was arguably even better downstairs as well. The food was absolutely delicious and was prepared very quickly. Our server was really helpful with both food and wine recommendations. I'll definitely be coming back!
Food was greasy and bland. Salt and pepper didn’t help much. There are so many great Greek places in NYC. There is no need to revisit this one. I won’t be back.
I have been to Kefi many times and this time it was not as good as previous times. The service was a bit off. It took a long time for us to get our food and appetizers came out at various time, some with the main courses. Some main courses came out when most of us were finished. The chips that are normally so delicious we just ok. Any place can have an off night. I hope that the next time I go, it will be back to normal.
Unfortunately after dining at Kefi many, many times we were disappointed this last visit.
For whatever reason they do not have an outer door to keep the freezing wind from coming into the restaurant each time a new customer enters and we were seated in the front section (by request because it is quieter there). We had to wear our coats through dinner and still caught the strong breeze each time the door was opened. The service was a bit slow too. We were not sure when/if our meals were coming! Once we did get our food it was, as always, very good. We will return, but will never sit near the door in the winter again!
Service got the order wrong And tried to clear the plates multiple times while we were still eating. Seemed like they wanted to rush us out.
The moment I walked into Kefi, I was taken by the space. …Mediterranean and New York at the same time. Those huge glass windows created an open and welcoming space. Within moments I was warmly greeted. I waited for my four guests to arrive while enjoying a martini at the bar. It’s a great place to meetup. Our table in the dining room was waiting for us. We dined family style and loved the Grilled Octopus, YiaYia’s Meatballs, the Branzino, the Braised Rabbit over Pasta, the Brussel sprouts, the butternut squash tortalini and so much more. Don’t forget to order the dips to start. My advise. Try it all. We were joyous and had great conversation. The service was awesome. I can’t wait to go back.
We went for restaurant week and they gave us a special plate with a variety of dips.
There was so much food, we took the main course home. The appetizer of fried calamari was
so generous, so we left room for a delicious desert.
I always order the same 2 items, the grilled octopus and the grilled Lavraki with broccoli rabe.
Truly outstanding every time. The dips, meatballs and lamb burger are also just superb.
Very good food very good service. Our first visit. Will definitely return! The Branzino and Kefi salad was excellent!
Overpriced, uncomfortable chairs, dirty bathroom.
One plate didn't look clean at all.
There was a problem with communication with a glass of wine coming from one person when a bottle was ordered. With the glass gone and a bottle on the way, another glass of wine showed up from another person. With that finely cleared up, the food was good and service improved. The owner was easy to talk to and told us about his chef. We really liked the chef's twist on classics. We would definitely find our way back here the net time we are in town.
