"The dining experience should be sharing appetizers so that everybody can get to taste different flavors and textures " Chef Gregory Zapantis.

"Many people ask me if this is Greek Cuisine , and I don’t know what to compare it to, either to Greek cuisine of 1962 or 2009, but my answer is a seafood restaurant with a Greek Flare to it " Chef Gregory Zapantis.

"Our Menu of Simply Grilled fish but simplicity with elegance ! " Chef Gregory Zapantis.

"we are bringing to the people of Washington Something they haven’t experienced before " Chef Anthony Acinapura.

vipOpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

Dined 3 days ago

We were extremely disappointed with the food and expense of this restaurant. We had an assortment of dips, spanakopita, and the fresh catch of the day. None of the dips were even marginally good. Cava dips from Whole Foods are better. The fresh catch was over cooked to the point of being dry and bland. For the amount they charge per pound, this was unacceptable. The only saving grace was that the service was good as was my company. We will not return.

First time here and was given a groupon for 2 people for $50. What a bargain for brunch. Unlimited mimosas and a very nice 3 course menu to choose from. Loved my Cellar salad and also my crab cake. Kids had pasta and my dining mates had a burger, baklava and a mixed appetizer platter. Everyone loved their food. Would definitely go back. Easy to park as well.

Great service. Our waitress was very attentive and gave us helpful hints about the wine, the fresh fish and the cost of the items. Best fresh fish and seafood in town! The Madagascar King shrimp are grilled to perfection. I strongly recommend them.

Glad that I tried KT using a groupon because I would have been upset paying full price to dine there. Service was pretty good but food was quite disappointing. I ordered the salmon with polenta cake, which was decent, but it was served on top of a tomato sauce that tasted like jar marinara. The sauce really threw off the rest of the dish. Would have been much better without the sauce or possibly with a different sauce. I also ordered a side of the roasted lemon potatoes, they were not roasted at all. They were not tender at all and looked/tasted like they had maybe been boiled for a few minutes but definitely not roasted.

It has been awhile since I visited Kellati Taverna but it was just as I remembered it. Great food and excellent service. The grilled octopus appetizer was out standing. Once again a very nice Dinning experience.

We had been to Kellari several times a while ago, so we were looking forward to reconnecting with a favorite restaurant. We left, however, with a mild sense of disappointment. Our appetizer and each of our entrees had some high points, but overall, the food was not very inspired - somewhat bland in flavor and not very memorable. Perhaps just an off night or we selected the wrong entrees that didn't impress. We will probably visit again, but will temper our expectations.
