Great all around! Food was delicious, very friendly service and fun atmosphere
Great service great food!
This is one of my go to places for a business lunch. The food is always very good. It is a very nice space. Pre- COVID the service was often a bit slow. More the kitchen than the wait staff. Recognizing every one is struggling during COVID, it took forever for the kitchen to put out the food. Wait staff was generally attentive but a bit frazzled by the kitchen.
Great food and extra friendly service.
This has always been a great restaurant for Greek food. This visit, however, was somewhat disappointing. The service was sub-par even though the restaurant was essentially empty. The Greek salad we used to get to share was the same price but only 1/2 the size of what it used to be. The food all tasted fine as always and the fish was delicious.
The food is always on point and the service today was excellent
Never disappoints. Glad they survived covid and continue to deliver great food in mid town!
I had the Salmon ($36.95) cooked medium-rare, as requested. It was very enjoyable. It came with a small portion of two vegetables, each was very tasty. The surrounding decor was very pleasant.
Some of the best Greek food we’ve had outside of Greece. The service and the food were excellent. We will definitely be back next time we’re in NYC.
Amazing Mediterranean food. I love the lamb, great salad and drinks. Can’t beat the Happy Hour 4-7 daily.
Had a nice lunch. A bit overpriced for what it is, but given the general quarantine conditions, not bad at all…
Food was decent. My burger was tasty and huge. Truffle fries were completely missing the truffle part, but a glass of Greek wine made it all better!
We dined at 5:30 before a show and the service, food and atmosphere were wonderful.
Attentive wait staff. Great food as always
Great food and extra friendly service.
Food was good but not exceptional. Just nothing memorable about the meal given the price. The Kellari Chips we're quite good though
Spectacular cuisine And attentive service. Spiro was amazing, and kept us all smiling! Can’t wait to return, and a blessing to sit outdoors in your beautiful oasis.
Ordered off of the prie fixed pre/post theater menu and everything was delicious! It is not exactly the menu that is posted on here - once you enter they have a QR code to view the menu.
-beginning we were served a rustic bread basket along with hummus, radishes and olives (tasty)
-first course we had the zucchini cakes (good) and grilled calamari (have never had such tender calamari).
-second course we had the mushroom ravioli in creamy champagne sauce (good) and the grilled med sea bass (amazing!).
-third course yogurt cake (good-was a cheesecake filling texture), and the baklava (delicious - could have done without the chocolate drizzle on the plate).
Also the coffee was hot and tasty- waiter said it was Colombian.
The service was outstanding - they are fully staffed.
Great food and service, very quiet, nice interior.
Good food and service
My manager and her guest thoroughly enjoyed their lunch.
The bartender did not have the liquor and gave us a totally different drink without telling us. The waiter tried to rush us although the restaurant was fairly empty. The fish was tasty and the service good though.
The lobster was over grilled and tough.
When the theaters open it will hopefully return to a better spot. I will try again.
We lo e this restaurant! The fish is always superb, and the wine list is fun and accessible.
The only complaint is the condition of the restroom: not nice, guys. Gross
All the elements in the Greek salad I had were fresh but the salad wasn't anything special and was not well-arranged.
Excellent dining experience as always….so happy to be back in the city!
We went there for fish. It was good. On the small size for the whole fish grill plate cost that comes with no side, but good. Booked small table for dad’s birthday. Mentioned it in the booking. Nobody cared. No option for cake as desert and really no interest for helping small tables.
It had been a while since we were at Kellari. The refreshed lighter decor was new to us and really inviting. Great atmosphere and the food delicious. Friendly and professional service. We'll be going back.
Great food and extra friendly service.
Overall great, outside seating was needed as it was too noisy inside.
Service from the waiter was good but he had some slow response in the kitchen.
Had lunch with a friend. Our waiter was very helpful and the food was excellent. We didn't feel rushed and enjoyed each course, including the dessert our waiter suggested.
We had a fantastic experience! The chef was very accommodating. We’ll be back.
Good not great. Beautiful restaurant. A bit slow on the service and the restaurant wasn’t even busy. Also out of a few items on cocktail list. Halibut was a bit dry and needed seasoning. Baklava also dry- go figure. Beet salad delicious!
One of our favorite restaurants in NYC. Crab cake appetizer was fantastic as was the yogurt cake with fruit! We also got the halibut and the filet mignon, both of which were excellent. We highly recommend this eating establishment!!
We travel to nyc 2-3 times a year and always plan on a meal here. My husband is Greek and says the food is authentic
Ever show up somewhere and realize that no one really wants you there?? That’s exactly how we felt when we walked in to Kellari. The server was professional but never made us feel welcome or valued. The food was delicious but it was extremely expensive. Example- our branzino was $43. Two other restaurants on our trip had similar entrees but were $10 to $15 less. The restaurant itself is gorgeous but unless you are a friend of the host or a regular, do not expect to be received warmly.
We are very sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant experience at Kellari! We try to make sure that everyone that come inside our restaurant feels more than welcome, but it appears we failed to get that kind of service to your party. We hope that you will give us a second chance, and give the opportunity to show our true hospitality.
Everything about Kellari Taverna was excellent.
The only reason I am adding my only issue was so that Kellari becomes more sensitive and that others don't make the mistake I made.
When I called to make the reservation, I was told the tables were definitely far apart.
There was an option to sit outside but the restaurant is on a busy street and it was very humid.
The tables were not far apart and although the restaurant was not full, a group was seated right next to our table. I should have said something but we were in the middle of our meal.
Delicious food. Higher prices than I remember. Vast choices on a la carte menu, but prix fixe not as interesting.
A lovely Greek restaurant on West 44th Street. Just coming back to life post-COVID, hence a more limited seafood offering than usual. Nonetheless, heavily seafood dominant menu. Had delicious octopus appetizer and split a whole snapper. Both cooked simply and perfectly. Moist, tender and lightly seasoned. Usually busiest at lunch. Not cheap, but you do get quality. A great choice for pre-theater.
What a fabulous culinary experience! As a Greek person, I love their modern twist on the classics!
Thank you for your kind words! Our team at Kellari looks forward to seeing you again!
Excellent dinner w too-notch service. We had the whole fish and it was cooked perfectly. Greek salad and Brussel sprouts rounded out dinner followed by the warm chocolate dessert. All delicious!!
Excellent food and service. Very happy to see one of our favorites reopened and doing well.
