Always a good experience, and very convenient to Symphony Space. Recommended for (mostly Greek) casual dining on the upper West side of Manhattan.

Baklava was beyond extraordinary. We met the grandma who makes it from scratch. It was beyond delicious. Loukaniko appetizer was more salad than sausage and lacked the orange zest. The souvlaki was lacking in flavor and spice. I would carry out the baklava and not dine in.

Waiters didn’t check in my Open Table reservation. I asked twice. At the third time, he said it no longer showed up on their screen.

They did not seem to have received our reservation, if i had arrived on time rather then early, I probably would not have had a table. Pizza good, VERY VERY noisy though

Though we had a reservation, we were seated near the exterior door that kept opening to cold air. VERY NOISY. Slow service. Though I rated the food (due to the survey would not let me continue), we left before ordering.

This was the third time the waiter(s) assured me they had my Open Table reservation, only to get a “no show” email from Open Table 2 days later. The food is great. Telio get your s**t together as far as checking in Open Table reservation.

Server was unfriendly. My husband ordered lamb kebab and it was very tough. I ordered linquini with clams and was chewing on shells throughout the meal, was afraid I would break a tooth. Very disappointed!!!

Always such nice staff and servers, kind, patient, helpful. This is a casual neighborhood spot for Mediterranean food and the bonus is that you can add on a slice of Perfecto pizza Sicilian that is next door!

Italian food is the least expensive to make and taste good. Their recipe for meatballs fell so short. There were pieces of bread filling in the meatballs which means it absorbs grease which then lands on my waistline. The meat was not a good ground round or sirloin flavor, probably a ground chuck. It was hard fry-sautéed before being added to the sauce, which by the way was
Nothing special. To top it off the serving was much smaller than most Italian places.
Service was very slow, painfully so. The way the wait staff stood there and hung over our shoulder as we paid the bill was most annoying. She watched every move of our pen.

Great neighborhood dining on upper west side. Only think was I asked 3 times to verify my Open Table reservation was confirmed only to get a no show email two days later.

Disappointing dinner, my dish of Risotto with shrimps & scallops was very small amount of risotto, not enough value! My friend's pasta & mushroom dish was poor - noodles stuck together and mushroom stems not removed. Would not go back.

It was extremely noisy, so we left without eating. The manager was very unfriendly. No doubt he meant well, but did not handle the stress of the moment well at all.

The fact that the description of Telio on Open Table refers to authentic cuisine with recipes handed down and refers to the restaurant as a "must-try" establishment on the Upper West Side can only mean that the description was written by the owners of Telio, and has taught me never to trust the description section again. The restaurant was a glorified pizza parlor (and is attached to a pizza parlor, actually), and, on this particular Saturday night, had 4 young people working there who were far more interested in joking around with each other than thinking about any of their paying customers. The food was fine, but was ridiculously over priced - my Greek salad was $15 and if I wanted to add chicken it went up to $23. For a restaurant that bordered on being a diner, the prices were hardly warranted.

Once again after explaining Open Table reservation to 2 different people, I still see reservation was ignored. No points added to my account. Food is good at this neighborhood joint, but this open table thing happens every time!

The waiter kind of ignored us--when he FINALLY brought the check we had to go get it from him after 20 minutes.
