Hi. This restaurant never disappoints. I've been coming to Snack Taverna for years now, and it is consistently good. (If anything, it keeps getting better over time)

The "Lamb Triangles" are literally to die for…I keep dreaming about the flaky pastry on the outside and the modestly spiced meat on the inside, so yummy. The watermelon-tomato salad was super refreshing, and the sampler of different Hummus and Tzatziki is delicious too. The Calamari stew with (what I think it was Fava Beans!) with a tangy flavor thanks to the lemon, was very good. AAA+

A wonderfully pleasant, quiet Sunday lunch with my family. Really good location near West 4th but away from the busy parts. Also cheaper than a lot of surrounding spots

Wanted Greek for dinner and wanted to try someplace other than the great Pylos, what a find!!! Host, staff service all great. Wine selection amazing and the food was unbelievable. Flavors were on point, portions were shareable and for a small menu each plate was perfection. A new go to spot for our list!

We arrived and were seated at a table opposite the garbage and saw a rat. When we asked to move to another table as there was only 1 other table outside we were told we could no move to one of the 8 open deuces. The attitude of the server was he did not care about us or try to accommodate us so we left.

My partner and I arrived for our reservation and waited 10 minutes in the sweltering heat while staff continued to ignore us. Horrible service - and they make all sorts of demands of customers. Bad service, bad attitudes, mediocre food…no thanks. And this was supposed to be our wedding anniversary dinner.

The food was fresh and delicious but the service was just ok. Neither our waiter or the host were friendly or inviting, always felt like they were doing us a favor.

Came here with a group of 7 friends for pre-theater dinner. We ordered many, many dishes and ate family-style. Food was outstanding throughout, service very friendly, and dishes came quick. We were in and out in an hour including cocktails but never felt rushed. Highly recommend.

I was pleasantly surprised with how good the quality of food was and it's a fun little wine list with cool Greek Selections. They don't hold back on the feta in their greek salad which a lot of places do to be honest. Service was friendly and they don't make you feel bad if you want a later dinner which is also a rare trait these days! Well done!! We will be back.

The waiter who served us was incredible rude and condescending. He didn't provide good service and treated us poorly. It was very confusing because the restaurant wasn't particularly packed and we felt rushed. We left before ordering entrees because of the terrible experience.

The food that was served was great -- it was unfortunate that the waiter was so rude.

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.

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.
