This was sadly one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. The entrees were below average, the calamari was rubbery. The drinks were okay but at one point I was served a flat glass of sparkling wine.

I felt bad for the servers, I know the pandemic caused hiring servers to be hard. But the service was terrible. Our food was delivered to the wrong table, we had to remind servers for our drinks even just water. We literally never got something without a reminder or a problem.

Maybe give them a few months into the summer to try, or just skip it all together.

My friend and I got the Brioche French Toast and the Avocado Toast, both were fantastic. Great food, great service, and not too loud. It's such a cute restaurant and I'm so glad they're open!

Was expecting a better flavor profile from the food. The appetizer consisting of a sample of all the mezzes was the high of the meal. Wish that the wines were explained better, either on the menu or by the servers. Greek wines are difficult to compare to more traditional European varieties and tend to be highly acidic. That makes them difficult to pair with food. We were seated outside, as requested, which puts us more at the mercy of the neighborhood character (not bad) than to the restaurant's ambience.

Loved Snack Taverna! Very cute and calm space for amazing greek food that is very different from just souvlaki and gyros. The dips were amazing, the staff was great, I loved the meatballs and the greek salad. Great casual spot to meet friends.

First, thanks to Snack Taverna for staying open throughout the COVID pandemic.

I went with a friend on Saturday night. We ordered the spinach triangle and the grilled octopus appetizers. Both were delicious.

I ordered the Lamb Shank for my entree. It was a beautiful-looking piece of lamb, but unfortunately, it was way too salty. I love lamb, and I just could not finish the piece.

Less salt on the lamb, please.

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.

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.

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.
