"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.

Last minute but very good choice on my part. Excellent bread, olives, hummus and olive oil. Parsini salad was light and full of flavor. The steak was outstanding! Great service.

Very good service and food. Setting works for casual and elegant diners.

We needed to move away from the performer's speakers.

We have been to kellari taverna a few times now for brunch. It has never disappointed! The Greek cuisine, excellent service and mimosas have consistently been on point.

Food was very good, service was very slow. One side on menu (anticipated) had been changed without changing menu, or we were given old menus, which resulted in a disappointment.

Kellari's is a favorite choice when we are meeting friends in DC. We've never been disappointed. The appetizers are delicious and filling, so recommend caution in how many you order so you don't fill up before the main course. There are always many choices of fresh fish, which the diner hand picks, and it is prepared and presented beautifully--not to mention perfectly done.
(if you prefer meat, the lamb chops look delicious, too). The cookies after the meal were an unexpected treat (it was our friend's birthday). I especially liked the baklava-type cookie, prepared without filo pastry. We'd dine at Kellari's more often if we lived closer!

Excellent kitchen. Fabulous fish. Great lunch value. Nice place with very good service. Can't wait to go back and try other dishes.

We love this place. Food is always good, service attentive, and they periodically have Groupons for Lobster Dinners or Brunches that are great values.
