Lamb triangles are amazing! I’d go back just for that.
A group of us met before a show at the Cherry Lane Theater, and although the service felt a little slow (it's a very relaxed, charming vibe) to this NYC A-type, they asked about our time-frame and did in fact have us out in perfect time to make the show. A nice range of food to accomodate a tableful of issues, all delicious. A couple more beer options would make it almost perfect.
CREATIVE MENU WITH MANY OLD STANDBYS. FOOD WAS EXCELLENT! WAITER WAS FUN .
I love Snack Taverna. Food is delicious and they make you feel special without being over the top. Love it equally on a quiet Tuesday or a bustling Friday.
The food was very good. Especially the lamb triangles and the veggies were very fresh. The service was slow though. But the food was worth the wait.
We used to go to this restaurant a few times a year, but now we won't be back. While the food is good, the service has become downright annoying. That kind of smug fake niceness that comes with some hipster waiters. Even without that, the restaurant broke my cardinal rule of dining out. NEVER BRING ENTREES OUT WHILE YOUR TABLE IS STILL ENJOYING STARTERS. It's expected at cheaper places, but this is a nice restaurant, and when our waiter came out with the entrees, we looked up and he kind of stood there waiting for us to move our plates so he could put the next course down. But we didn't. In case you weren't reading, we don't like that, and it was honestly kind of a stare down and I had to ask him to please take them back and wait 5 minutes. Needless to say that went over great.
Secondly, I ordered a wine that was supposedly akin to a Sauvignon Blanc. Since all of the wines are Greek, no one who goes there is familiar with any of them, so you have to depend on their decisions on what to give you. Yes, I know it's a greek restaurant, just another hurdle. I didn't like it, but it improved with the food. So he brings the wine in a non-wineglass which is really hard to tell how much wine there is in them, and I finish it in no time and order another. When I get to my third, I politely ask if they can make their pour a little bigger. Not a big request I would think as we're spending a fair amount of money as I've ordered three wines, a starter and an entree. And the place is EMPTY as it was Columbus Day weekend. He snaps at me, "IT'S 5 OUNCES!" Oh, my, forgive me! 5 ounces! I didn't know there were such strict measures here. So the air there has taken over what was once a great little spot with really good food. Sorry, but you've lost customers.
My husband and I came here for a Saturday lunch and were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was not packed. The next surprise was that the food was actually excellent Greek food with some dishes I was unfamiliar with. I was very happy with the lamb triangles (spiced lamb/beef with graviera cheese); the portion was more than I could eat (3 large triangles), not to mention a tasty side grain dish and some greens. My husband was equally impressed by the lamb burger he ate that came with cypriot potatoes. The waiter was very attentive and kind . . . no complaints. I will certainly be back.
I thought the food was good, the service indifferent. The staff were generally polite but inattentive.
With so many choices in the neighborhood we patronized the restaurant because of a promotion from a local theater, but at bill time they refused to honor it. I was dumbstruck. It's not as if we weren't liberal in our ordering. My wife and I dropped $165.
The main reason to come here is the handsome bones of the place on a lovely block in the West Village. But honestly, with so many cute neighborhood joints with decent food to choose from, I'll be spending my money elsewhere.
We were seeing a show at the Cherry Lane Theatre, and they sent us a list of local restaurants. Some were very pricey, but Snack seemed a bit more reasonable, so we booked. My friend arrived before I did, and secured a table at the window, giving us a pleasant view of the street as the sun gradually went down. I started with a tasty specialty cocktail (my friend just had a soda) and got a small plate of the veal meatballs, which were very tasty. My friend ordered chicken, and I got the eggplant stuffed with lamb and beef. There was lots of food, all of it good, but we still managed dessert. This turned out to be a great choice, and I made sure to get a business card on my way out.
We had wonderful service before a show at the Comedy Cellar. Delightful server, delicious dips, and a delicious classic Greek salad. Highly recommended.
Snack is a treasure. We have been going for over 10 yrs- every time we are in town!
Excellent Greek food. Was there at an early hour, so the place was empty, therefore, no noise.
Food and service were both fantastic! Bartender was welcoming as was the waiter who explained the menu options well. Greek wine isn’t my favorite but we were able to taste it and get a good recommendation from the waiter. Dips were super delicious. Quaint place. Tiny bathroooms.
Great Village food !
This is becoming our favorite very quickly! First time came here just for drinks at the cozy small bar - delicious creative drinks, but didn't eat. Second time came here for dinner - even better! The food is light, flavorful, perfectly portioned, and comforting. We had the grape leaves, feta and watermelon salad, roasted rosemary chicken with chickpeas and gold raisins, and butter beans in tomato sauce with feta. Couldn't stop eating, everything was SO good. The service is extremely attentive and quick to suggest options and refill water glasses!
We had a wonderful time at Snack. the service was friendly, helpful and fast. The food was excellent
It was nearly empty on Sunday around noon--amazing! Skip the crowded brunch places with the long lines ad go to Snack Taverna instead!
I've always liked the food at Snack Taverna, but this time the service was just terrible.
Terrific little place with delicious food and friendly service. We ordered several small plates to share, beginning with a huge Greek salad. The octopus was especially good. Will definitely return.
Went before a show in SoHo and it was great. Great for sharing small plates, delicious food, and attentive service. Small, but quiet and a lovely location.
The stuffed pepper is one of the best vegetarian dishes in the city!
Food not great at all. Not authentic Greek
If you like Greek food, this is a great go-to place in the West Village. Tzatziki, hummus, zucchini fritters, stuffed peppers, spinach triangles, shrimp Santorini -- all sooo good. And the service was very friendly and helpful too!
It was first time for all of us at Snack Taverna. We were seeking yummy Greek food in a relaxing setting and it delivered on that...and then some. Food was very good, service was attentive and overall the atmosphere was the typical, cozy West Village neighborhood place. Would definitely come back.
We've eaten here over the years & are always satisfied with the consistently flavorful food & good service. The exposed brick-walled ambiance is relaxed & comfortable -- very reminiscent of places we've dined in while in Greece.
I highly recommend Snack Taverna.
This is lovely modern Greek in a sweet little West Village space. The bar is minimal, but the Greek wine selections are choice. It’s the kind of place that you’ll go to again and again.
One of my favorite restaurants in NY. Terrific food. And our waiter couldn't have been nicer. Can't wait to go back.
A great neighborhood go-to. I've been many times and will continue to visit.
Had a great time with friends who go to Greece every year. Very nice retsina also!
Service was unpleasant. Food was bland and disappointing.
The server was not that service minded and didn’t seem to enjoy his job. The food was ok, but curiosly spicy, even though it didn’t complement the dish. I had the lamb triangels and they were so spicy I couldn’t finish them.
The food was fantastic, however the server was not attentive. We waited 30min before someone checked in on us. My friend and I were deep in conversation until we realized that no one came to fill our water cups. When the server came, we asked if we could cancel our entree since it had been over 30min and he said it was already ordered. Then we had to waited another 15min and when we asked why it took so long, he said it couldn’t be ordered any faster. The comment was unnecessary especially since he gave us a hard time about cancelling the entree.
went or dinner. Started with octopus salad and greek salad. Both very good. Each had bronzini for dinner. It was excellent. Would highly recommend it for good greek dinner
Traditional Greek food, but all of the ingredients and preparation is just a cut above.
Great spot for post movie dinner. Delicious food. Excellent service. Perfect neighborhood spot.
lovely clean neighbor spot but food portions are so small compared to price paid a little more on the plate would make me go back sadly we will not
Food was delicious, healthy pours with the beverages and all around great service! Branzino was divine. Lamb shank was amazing falling off the bone. Rice pudding perfect sweetness!
Lots of tapas to choose from - great for sharing. Food was good!
Quick bite to eat and their Chicken entrée was enough for two people. The hummus is made to order and tasted delicious! Great ambiance and service on a rainy Thursday :) will return again.
Great pre-theater place. We arrived only one hour before curtain and the kept pace brsik for us so we could be out in 45 minutes. Great small plates selection.
