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.

Homemade Food Just like my Grandmother Cooked - Terrible

The Upper West Side is where the literati live, yet Symphony Space is located in a restaurant desert - nothing but retail chain stores and Starbucks - not a decent restaurant in site. So we tried Telio a Greek/Italian home style restaurant guarded by a little old Mediterranean couple. But not every grandmother knows good food. Mine was the worst cook in the world.

We started with “Greek Spreads”: taramosalata (carp mousse), melizanosalata (eggplant salad), tzatziki (greek yogurt with garlic cucumbers and mint) and tyrokafteri (red pepper and feta cheese purée). All tasted as if just spooned from a Krinos Jar. The spanakopita was a soggy mess with a caked burnt crust – obviously had been sitting around for days and reheated many times.

Our Entrees were a Gyro plate, Chicken Kebab and Veal Parmigana. I knew we were in trouble when they were served 5 minutes after ordering. All tasted wet from the steam table and then reheated. The pasta was Al Mushy, rather than al dente – had to eat with a spoon because the strands broke on the tines of a fork – Chef Boyardee is better quality. Box wine for $12 glass.

The pasta with salmon was excellent.
Telio is a neighborhood gem so I eat here often.

Good neighborhood casual dining. Greek, Italian dishes well prepared Also great pizzas. Unfortunately Telio most often fails to register Open Table reservations, so you'll get a no show email from Open Table. In my case, I notified the host & waiter of my open table reservation to no avail.

This is a good neighborhood spot for casual dining. Service was very good. Not sure it was as authentic as I would have liked (I'm from Chicago and we have Greektown) but the food was good and well preparred and my guests live in the neighborhood and they will be coming back. I would give it an overall 3 1/2 -4 stars.

Very good neighborhood place. I think it helps to be a regular? The place had many open tables which was not surprising for an August night and the owner met us and showed to any table we wanted. Didn't need our OpenTable reservation! The METS game was on a TV by the bar which was a plus for me. Food was a cut above typical Greek diner, with lots of Greek & Italian options. The grilled octopus was ok but had a tuna fish taste? Lamb kabobs with grilled vegetables was excellent except for the rice which was a bit soggy. My daughter enjoyed her chicken Marsala. Strangely it took forever to pay our bill despite help from the friendly "bus boy" who also kept our glasses filled with cold and refreshing water.

If you order the right dish it is very good.
The salmon is very good with the leek rice
The chicken is always too dry so I only order the salmon.
I'm sure there are other good dishes too

The food was delicious! The service was so-so. The older gentleman, maybe the owner or manager, was very nice and picked up where our server was lacking.

I eat here often. It's a neighborhood gem. The food is always fresh and good and the staff is friendly and efficient. Because I'm a regular there they know me and always give me a warm hello including the owner who is usually on site managing. He cares. I love this restaurant. It's my go-to.
