Excellently prepared fresh ingredients and a very nice accommodating staff. The portions are very generous and delicious. We have eaten at their other restaurant and have always been pleased. This is our first time at Kefi and we will return.

Very tasty Greek/mediterranean food. We had a bean soup which was very fresh, homestyle, tasty. The calamari were great as was the sangria. Had an excellent grilled salmon with broccoli and very tasty baklava. Greek comfort food and overall fun, relaxed vibe.

Excellent food and warm but not intrusive service! I loved Kefi, and plan to visit many more times in the future.

We have been to Kefi many times. The assortment of dips appetizer is consistently excellent, although somehow the quantity of pita bread supplied is not quite sufficient. The fish is always fresh and very well prepared. Prices are in line with the quality and service. The space is a bit noisy, and in the cold weather the upper level is drafty (there is no antechamber to the entry, so freezing air enters whenever the front door is opened.) The wait staff is attentive and efficient.

Great food. Definitely not your „Greek Diner“ food, but rather authentic Mediterranean with a twist.

Grilled Octopus and Zucchini patties were my favorite. But everything else was tasty and the speed/cordial nature of the servers was excellent! The place was packed and they still seamlessly delivered the experience. Thank you Kefi

Service was horrible and the host was very rude. We waited an hour and fifteen minutes for our meal. Rather than getting an apology from the host, he stated that because we didn’t order apps we screwed up the kitchen and have to just wait till they are ready to “ fire the entrees”. In additions multiple bathrooms were closed and the open one was in bad shape. This restaurant has fallen off tremendously.
