Have been coming for over 20 years. Love sitting out back in good weather. Food,especially fish,is always good.
Lots of new wait staff on this very busy Sunday which made for slower than normal service. Food is consistently good in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Valet parking on weekends a plus.
Great food and service for a great price. Grilled octupus a must!
Great & fresh whole fish entrees. Recommended if you like seafood and/or Greek food in general!
Food was good, some dishes excellent.
We've been dining at Telly's since it opened over 20 years ago Telly was cooking and Nana was hosting and her 10 year old daughter Diana was taking orders. Now Diana is running the show and making everyone feel so welcome. It is not only the best Greek restaurant around it is one of NYC's best seafood restaurants. The fish is always fresh and perfectly cooked and if you're not a seafood lover there are always delicious lamb chops. We usually start with a large Greek salad followed by grilled calamari and octopus and some sides of lightly fried zucchini and potatoes. We then get a porgy, snapper or branzino. The Greek wines are very good. The service is very good from a friendly and professional staff. We live in Manhattan but it's worth the drive or subway ride. The place has a nice buzz with people enjoying themselves.
Blackened fish, no thanks!
Amazing food...as always
Always the Best!!!
Great authentic Greek food!!
My first time to Telly's but not my last. Loved that I could make a reservation, plenty of seating, relaxed atmosphere where you don't feel rushed. The large Greek salad and tzatziki dip w/ pita were great starters that lasted through the rest of the meal. A giant plate of grilled vegetables, the chicken skewers, and the spanakopita were all great.
Outstanding fresh food. Everything was delicious!
Great food. Amazing service. We would absolutely go back again
Wonderful meal with my cousins in town for a visit! Fantastic food and service!
Telly’s is my all time favorite in Astoria!! Love the calamari, salads, Saganaki and swordfish kebabs!! Can’t be beat!!
Delicious fish. Have bronzino and share it. The staff couldn’t have been nicer. Very knowledgeable about the menu. With valet parking is a major plus
We were a party of four. We love the convenience of valet parking. The wait staff is knowledgable and very pleasant. The fish is always fresh and well prepared and we loved the Greek salad, grilled vegetables and grilled octopus. The house wine was very good. It's always fun to be there.
Have had dinner at Telly's a few times now- never disappointed. Really nice selection of fish and other entrees. Great appetizers. Can get pretty busy on a weekend night- rightfully so. Will be returning
Amazing food and service. Best Greek food outside of Greece! Don't believe me, go try it!
The best Greek food in Astoria!! Fantastic octopus!!
Food was amazing, as always. Katarina is the best! We love Telly’s!
Amazing service and delicious food!
Telly's is always spot on!! Food,service and atmosphere. Awesome!! If we could we would be here every weekend. Love it!
Like always when we eat at Telly’s Taverna, we enjoy fresh and tasty food.....highly recommend!!
Tellys is a great place to enjoy a
fantastic meal. The drinks were huge, the food is reasonably priced
and delicious. Try the baklava!
The food was amazing with very large portions. The service was wonderful as well. We had multiple food allergies in our group which was no problem for them.
The appetizers were great but a little pricey. $12 for a slice of baked cheese is a bit high. All of the apps were very good. The entrees on the other hand were a different story. The red snapper was fairly flavorless and my chicken kabob was so dry when I cut into it there was saw dust. Replaced it for the biftekia which were much better but again pricey for some meat patties and soggy French fries.
We’ve been dining at Telly’s for 30 years. It’s the best Greek restaurant in Astoria. The owners treat everyone as if they are family. Food is always amazing especially the fresh salads and fish. You can’t go wrong. It’s our go-to restaurant forever !
Wonderful service, great authentic Greek food, and fair prices. All good.
Another good meal at my go to Astoria Greek restaurant. A bit noisy that night but overall very good
We love the food at Telly's. The renovations in the dining area are great. With the addition of the sound proofing dinner conversations are totally comfortable. Another great feature is the valet parking. Yay!! We love it every time we go
This was our first time at Telly's and you can tell from the moment you enter and view the fresh fish that this might be the real "Greek" deal in Astoria. I've been to several other restaurants in the area and somehow neglected this. As an American who lived in Greece, I am very particular about the authenticity of Greek food here and this passed the basic test. Standouts were the Greek Loukanika (sausage...not like Italian) and the Greek salad. Good tomatoes for this time of year (winter) and no lettuce (thank god!). The service was attentive and it is busy but they did not rush us. Enjoy.
This was my first time at Telly’s. Great food. Would definitely be back.
Has been a favorite of mine for many years since being introduced to it by a Greek friend.
Always consistently good and very authentic.
Dinner was delicious and prompt as always. Server was very good. We were seated in the back porch as there was a baptism party that took up the main dining room. That was distracting from the entire dining experience and very chaotic . They need to better plan out a more quiet dining experience for their consistent patrons, or close for their private parties. Our reservation was at 6pm on a Sunday night.
Telly's is a favorite for our family. We love Greek food. It is authentic and delicious. The wait staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The owner Dianna is always there and makes sure your needs are met for any occasion. All our friends and family love it and want to keep coming back. I am a huge fan and highly recommend them.
Great ambience, food was delicious!!! Service was great, very attentive.
We had a great meal at Telly's. Excellent service.
