Fish of the Day
Chef's daily seafood choice
Red wine rosemary sauce, parsnip puree
Orzo pasta, scallops, calamari, shrimps in a tomato sauce
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.
The food was excellent! From the seafood to the lamb chops and lamb shank, it was great! Sat outside and the evening was perfect!
Excellent food served by very competent servers
Great seating outside.
Last but not least a charming hostess Agnes greets you and take care of your
Kellari’s is one of my favorite restaurant in Manhattan.
Enjoyed the atmosphere! Food was delicious!
The order took for ever to arrive, then one of my guests was brought chicken when he ordered octopus. They changed it and it arrived really quickly which beg the question why it took so long at the first place.
I then ordered a latte and was brought a really coffee which they added just froth milk when I suggested it.
It has all the ingredients to be a perfect spot but needs to work on few things.
We got to seat outside luckily as the air conditioning inside was way too strong !
First dinner out in NYC
The spanikopita is EXCELLENT! The Lavraki is tremendous. The a Greek salad was good.
seafood at kellari is very good; upscale greek taverna with varied choices. atmosphere is pleasant and service professional.
Great food and extra friendly service.
Glad they reopened. It’s as great as always.
Covid safe. Good job.
Delicious Greek dishes. Excellent service. Highly recommend!
Kellari is a very good restaurant that is consistent in the quality of it food, service and decor.
Delicious food, loved eating outside.
The restaurant staff were attentive. The food was excellent. No one hurried us. We enjoyed the entire experience!
Food was delicious and service was great. Good big groups!
The food was amazing and the staff was very kind and attentive. Beautiful decor inside and the outside seating. Highly recommend
The food was amazing and the place was perfect for a business lunch with donors and collogues.
Brought appetizer containing dairy to a vegan despite us being told before that the dish had no non-vegan content. $40 fish was wafer thin with very little content mainly bones. Lamb shank was tasteless, lemon potatoes greasy.
Service was VERY slow! We wanted a leisurely dinner but we were falling asleep.
Worst part My fish wasn’t very fresh and think it made me sick. Although my fellow dinners did not have any issues with this. Normally I love the place. Just may be a reviving up issue. I may be reluctant to return but likely will since it was my first bad experience of many!
Dinner was a treat. We ate outside in their "patio" and that felt very safe for a family that is not ready to eat inside a restaurant. The overhead heater felt good on a slightly cold, rainy night.
