I come here a lot for business lunches. It has traditionally been very consistent. However I am not sure if the chef or management has changed, but the Lavraki I always order came out very "soupy" (with a side of wet spinach and rice scooped onto the plain, instead of small side of horta that it usually comes with) and was poorly filleted (fish was all flaked). I sent it back and they said they would redo it - but when they came back, all they did was re-plate my old fish onto a new plate and put the soupy spinach and rice into a separate bowl. Manager was very nice and offered another dish but the experience put to question reliability and consistency, so just a heads up, especially for those who come for business lunches.

Top Greek fish restaurant, and yet in contrast to other top Greek fish restaurants, you can get a meal that is not astronomically priced. Also lovely décor and good service. Great prix fixe for pre-theater, and on Sundays they have a lobster prix fixe that is an excellent deal and delicious. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Greek food and amazing fresh fish.
Beautiful atmosphere and excellent service.
Lavraki ( Bronzino ) so sweet and fresh!
Love the steamed greens - not bitter.
Try the Segalis (sp?) Santorini white wine. Excellent!

Kellari Taverna is a very reliable spot and has been for many years. Perfect for biz lunches and dinners. Beautiful décor. Food is always great. Unbeknownst to me, it was Restaurant Week, so it was an especially economical meal. Will certainly return.

This is a beautiful restaurant with fantastic food and wine selection. Service was impeccable.
Lunch menu included a robust prix-fixe on top of the Restaurant week menu. That was a nice bonus for more choices.

Just too loud. I was there before but there was an event in the back. It was just not possible to carry a conversation

Place was packed, but some of the staff seemed overwhelmed. Waiter friendly but too pushy, hastening is along.
Menu still had the Restaurant Week specials inserted, when asked why, didn’t get a clear answer.
Portions small!
Have been there often, but a recent price increase will make me hesitate to come back!
Certainly no bargain and
