The ambience and service here are top notch. The food choices for vegetarians and fish eaters are excellent. The pre-theatre dinner special is good value for the money. I only gave a 4-star rating for the food because the bread was stale. I think it had been heated to "freshen" it but the result was that one side was hard (as if toasted) and the other side was soft.

We ordered from the Brunch menu and were very pleased. I had the poached eggs over crab and I highly recommend it.

The food and ambiance at Kellari was fine as usual but the food service was subpar. They ran out of the pre-theatre menu specials early and despite telling the wait staff that we were there for a show the service didn’t pick up any speed and we were scrambling to get out of there on time. Didn’t make for a great experience.

The food is terrific. I would suggest the grilled octopus and Lavraki but everything is good.

This is great for when you want perfectly prepared high-end Greek food. Their salads and seafood dishes are my favorite, all with generous portions (so consider sharing). The atmosphere is appropriate for business and social dining.

Always enjoy this restaurant. Consistent in every (good) way. Easy walk from Grand Central so location convenient for me pre-theatre or just for a midtown visit.

We love Kellari’s! We make a point of eating there at least once whenever we are in NYC. The location is great. The food is great. The ambiance is great. Mostly, the personal attention by the manager and staff is the greatest! A trip to the Big Apple would not be complete for us without eating and enjoying the folks at Kellari’s.

The sea bass over orzo was so salty I couldn't eat it. The biggest problem was that the service was incredibly slow.

Appetizers were brought out in a timely fashion, the entree’s were not. Almost an hour from when we arrived to when the entree’s were brought out. My customers needed to get back to work so some did not even have time to finish. The food when it finally came out was cold. Seemed to have been sitting for a while prior to being brought out.
