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.

We come to ny for business every year usually go to snack Eos uptown but unfortunately they closed this year. So we went to the West Village Because this restaurant has the same menu.
My husband and I are always trying out grilled octopus at every restaurant and honestly this is the best one that we've had. !!!

The place is not super fancy it's very down to earth, very authentic Greek food really delicious and friendly.

The lamb shank falls off the bone is to die for I have not had anything bad ever in the 4 years!!!

And the baklava is like no baklava I've ever had Delicious Like angels wings.

Go Check it out!!!

So happy I found this place! Great pre-theater spot for Cherry Lane/Lortel shows. Food was delicious. We shared the brussel sprouts, sautéed calamari and the stuffed pepper. All were so good. The calamari had a nice kick to it, if you like spicy. YUM!!

Fun place with very nice people and a good menu. Ordering several plates to share is a good way to go here, and timing never seems to be an issue - fast or slow, they get it done however you like.

Sunday afternoon late brunch. Food was fresh and good, but lamb burgers overcooked. Otherwise everything else was up to snuff. Friendly staff. Delicious Baklava!

This was our second time eating at Snack Taverna. The food did not disappoint us. We ordered small plates and enjoyed all our dishes. My only complaint- and not the restaurants fault- was the large coned truck immediately outside the restaurant. It blocked the beautiful view of this part of the Village. We will be back soon

Enjoyed an early Saturday night dinner and found the restaurant to be charming, with delicious food and helpful waitstaff. Since we didn't know any Greek wines, we especially appreciated the recommendation for a wine to accompany dinner. We opted to share a selection of the small bites, rather than individual meals, and would definitely recommend that approach if you have a group. Will definitely return.

I have gone to Snack Taverna many times for dinner and have always found the food and service great. I came for Sunday brunch for the first time last week and while the restaurant was nearly empty, it took over 45 minutes to receive our food. The service was bad and we had to ask about where our food was on multiple occasions. Once we received our omelets, the eggs were overcooked and yet the cheese was not melted at all inside. I found the food below average and was very disappointed by the overall experience. Will likely not dine here again...

Went there because of promotion by Cherry Lane Theater, one block away. The handicap access was poor but the staff helped. Ordered a Meze selection, which was OK but a little too peppery for some. Small dish veal meatballs were delicious. The whole Bronzini was fileted before cooking, rather than after, which made it dry. the ambience was very nice. The service was amateurish and inattentive. It was as if the neighbors cam in to help.

Food is ok, not the best, but decent.
Wine list is not that great, could use some improvements there. If you plan to have more than a few glasses, get the bottle. They give very small glass when order by glass, bottle is better value!

Snug, comfy place with attentive, friendly service. It's Greek comfort food upgraded slightly. The Mezes are delicious , portions appropriately small for mezes. Loved the zucchini fitters and eggplant spread. The shrimp with ouzo scented tomatoes was excellent. We split a branzino which was delicate and perfectly cooked. Nice Greek wine selection. All in all, a lovely neighborhood place that we'll return to.

Went for dinner with the family on a Friday evening. The food was excellent, as was the service, and the space is cozy and charming. The Saganaki is as well prepared as any you'll find in the City. The Branzino was much better than the one we had at a well-regarded restaurant in Astoria a few weeks ago (which was very good). The watermelon and feta salad special was refreshing and perfectly balanced. Veal meatballs and shrimp Santorini were also delicious - well seasoned and prepared with obvious care and patience. Bottom line - Snack Taverna is a true gem.
