We were clearly being rushed. Had the table for well under two hours, and ordered several glasses of wine, so not sure what the issue was. It was rude.

Have had both a lunch and dinner there. Everyone was impressed with their food. (Braised lamb is off the charts!) Location and interior decor was perfect. If your going greek you cannot go wrong. On the list to go back again and again.

Snack Taverna is an adorable West Village place. I felt welcomed and comfortable from beginning to end. The food is delicious. My salad transported me back decades to a dock on a Greek island where I remember sitting under the huge blue sky, over the gorgeous blue water. This is authentic Greek food well prepared. For desert, the walnut cake on yogurt was nothing less than divine, fresh and warm and soft. Huge picture windows provide state-of-the-art people watching, in addition to everything else. I am looking forward to my next dinner at Snack Taverna.

Great food and service. Would definitely come back and recommend this restaurant to others. Portions are generous, especially the “small plates” so keep that in mind.

If you are seeing theater at the Cherry Lane or the Minetta Lane Theaters, this is a must location for a bite. The food is so tasty, and the service professional, but casual. What a great vibe! Just the perfect place on a summer evening!

Our waiter Michael took very good care of us and the food was delicious. The restaurant is a lovely little spot, but they would benefit from having another waiter on staff. Otherwise, I enjoyed my experience and definitely plan on returning.

This quaint and cozy restaurant is our go to restaurant whenever we are in the neighborhood, usually as a pre theater meal at the Cherry Lane. It has never disappointed with the fresh and delicious food and great service. We ordered the tzatziki, saganaki, beat salad, and octopus - delicious!

Really enjoyable experience. I loved the spreads and the octopus was cooked perfectly. We also enjoyed the butternut squash / portabello / haloumi skewers which were unexpectedly satisfying - the plate was well balanced and the accompanying farrow had a great tomato flavor without being saucy. The servers were attentive and thoughtful but not excessive. And the drinks were great! Overall, a wonderful meal on a holiday weekend.

Simple, delicious, Greek fare. We will definitely go back! The wine menu needs reworked to include a bit of information, especially if the server is not knowledgeable about the product. We essentially made two random guesses and hoped for the best. They were ok. Mellow vibes and nice crowd.

Unfortunately the food was very bland and the strong pungent dirty odor in the restaurant got in the way of me enjoying and making a fair assessment of the quality of the food.
