Great place for a pre-theater dinner. We ordered from the pre-theater menu and loved the sea bass and the lamb chops. The selection of whole fish on the regular menu looked really interesting, too. Will definitely be back.

This is one of my standard, regular, go to places. I go to Theatre a lot. And this is definitely one of my frequented restaurants. The food is always fresh and delicious. Have a great wine list. And the service is wonderful. I bid pricing as this area is, but worth it I always enjoyed myself here. I would definitely recommend.

There is nothing new to say that I have not said in previous reviews. This is a physically beautiful restaurant with a great bar for pre-dinner drinks. The Greek food is outstanding with a varied menu. From the moment you enter the door to leaving after dinner, the staff is welcoming, friendly, and very attentive. You will have a great dining experience here.

I’ve had better meals here in the past. Service and ambiance are very nice - tho the noise level can make conversation challenging. Avgolemeno soup was ok but uninspired; A bit bland and dull. Octopus was very tough. To their credit, they compted it. Would recommend it as I know they can do better.

Went on the recommendation of a friend. This was an outstanding dining experience for me--great food, super hospitable waitstaff and management, and a nice wine list. If you like fish, they do it right. HIGHLY recommend trying this place.

Fresh fish in a Greek style. Good wine list. Service is well paced. Perfect pre-theater Dining. Give yourself at least 2 hours.

My husband and daughter had a fish from Greece that was brought to the table before it was cooked so they could see it. I had the jumbo king shrimp from Nigeria which they had on display in their fresh fish display. They were huge and so delicious. The food was grilled and very healthy and tasty. We all enjoyed our meals and will be back again soon. Service attentive and professional.
Wine list organized by country and had reasonably priced bottles on it as well as expensive. Great restaurant for any occasion.

I have come to Kellari for several years, and never had a bad meal or even not to great service. Waiters are always attentive, and food is superb.
