Had a tzatziki emergency - needed to eat ASAP. Snack Taverna’s satisfied that craving and then some. Everything we ordered was DELICIOUS, the owner couldn’t have been nicer, and it was easy to get a table within an hour on a Wednesday evening. Solid go-to for amazing Greek food without breaking the bank!

I love Snack Taverna. Was my 2nd dinner there this past Sunday, 2/14/21. In door dining. great food, attentive service. A tad pricy BUT with Covid, happy to support a terrific restaurant. I highly recommend the stuffed pepper for non-meat eaters and the Greek salad with the slice of feta is yummy.

Delicious food and not too expensive. Not a frilly ambiance but nice for an outdoor lunch. Space heaters overhead for each table.

I can’t believe what a GEM this place is! Outdoor dining with socially distant tables and heaters overhead for each table! Wow for winter! The food is delectable. In the photo you see the straptasada, overeasy eggs in a delish broth with polenta and a salad. I can’t believe what amazing value for $$. The helpings are HUGE and price low for the high quality and taste! This place is exceptional including amazing service. They do ask for cc to reserve so cancellation or no show can cause penalty and even with that I’d go here again and recommend with 5 stars! It’s on a side street w/o much ambient noise. It faces an ugly wall with garbage cans so that’s the one thing that could be fixed to elevate the place.

Can’t say enough good things about Snack Taverna. The food is excellent, service is attentive and fun, and ambiance is great. Their outdoor seating/outdoor heating situation is perfect for Covid times...very comfortable. Highly recommend! One of my go-tos!

Snack Taverna should be on every West Village diner's radar. It has some of the best Greek food I've had in the city at a comfortable price point. It'd be great for dinner with out-of-town parents because the noise level isn't a factor OR a dinner with friends since sharing the dips / small plates is a must. Given the location on the corner of Morton and Bedford, it's off the beaten path and I recommend for anyone looking for great food & drinks without being overrun by the tourists who take pics of the Friends apartment a few blocks away.

Good food, but service could be better. While things are tough on restaurants with COVID, a little more effort could be put in to improve the ambience and comfort in the outside dining area.

What a great experience. We sat in the outdoor seating in the triangle between Bedford, Morton and 7th avenue on a beautiful evening and basically planted ourselves there for the night. Started with the "full shebang" of spreads and then shared a number of small plates - shrimp, calamari, fava, dolmades, lamb triangles, etc. Everything was delicious. We took recommendations on Greek red and white wines, which were great accompaniments to our dinner. The service was great as well - we had one table of adults and a separate table of 12 year olds, the staff was very accommodating and sat us next to each other (which I recognize is a feat to manage on a Friday night!). Turns out the kids loved the food as much as we did--they liked the spreads so much they ordered a second round of them after dinner and before dessert. This place is a true neighborhood gem - it had been a while since we'd been there, and we will definitely be back soon!

The food was good when it finally came but the service was so bad it made the whole experience suck. The food took forever to come out and when it did we had a tiny table for three people that barely fit . They brought the wine in water cups and we didn’t even know it was wine so someone accidentally dropped food in the cup , when we asked the waiter where the wine was he said u have it there - we asked him to bring a new glass because there was food in that one - we had to ask twice then he said I have to charge you for two glasses . The service was so slow it was a three hour meal .

even though I had a reservation, I was offered a table on the sidewalk close to a busy intersection, so I am not sure if it's even safe, to be honest with you, but given the circumstances, I guess it is what it is. But I would definitely expect a better sitting option for those who receive ahead of time. The food was nothing special to be honest ii was expecting more based on previous reviews and images.

Lovely evening sitting outside. They have set up a nice little platformed area with tables set safely apart. And there were umbrellas too. Situated on a lovely charming corner of old NY. Waiter was great and very friendly and directed me to the right wine in a minute. Food delicious and reasonable. Had some dips (super garlicky skordalia and Taramosolata both delicious) and kale salad and lamb triangles (quite spicy but yummy ). Would definitely return again.

the food and service was amazing and I would highly recommend this restaurant. Right now due to covid-19 the tables are outside and this past Saturday night it was rather cool and Breezy in Manhattan so it wasn't totally comfortable eating Outdoors but it is what it is. If you're looking for delicious Greek cuisine you should definitely plan on having a meal here.

Really tasty food, tried a variety of small plates, tapas style. Really rich vegetarian options and good seafood. Spinach and feta pastries were standouts as were the shrimp. Even with the good food, service was definitely the standout element of our visit. Waiter was super friendly, really efficient, even as he had to legitimately carry plates across a busy intersection to serve some of the outdoor seating. They are definitely doing their best at trying to maintain a cozy ambience amidst COVID precautions, with some seats right outside their door and others gathered around the small park triangle across the street. Our table was right in Hudson which does have a bit of traffic on it but it wasn’t overwhelming. Also once we got our plates and were served so well we didn’t even notice the traffic.

A welcome return to (outdoor) dining for this tiny gem of a Greek Restaurant with authentic Greek Specialties as well as an excellent selection of Greek wines.
We were regulars for a long time and really missed it. We'll also welcome the day when they can return to indoor dining. Extremely friendly and knowledgable staff.

I went with a friend for dinner on a Tuesday night so it was pretty quiet. It was a last minute plan, but as usual, it was great. The food is delicious, but the service was outstanding. It’s tough now trying to adjust to the new, outdoor dining, to comply with Covid rules...but the staff was able to pull it off. I will be back again!
