Waitress was great ! Excellent food
Good food and service. Just had a large white piece of plastic in my white dip with pita.
Get a professional espresso machine, Nespresso doesn't cut it for any serious foodservice outlet.
Wonderful service and delicious food. Every time I visit this restaurant they treat me like family.
Always great, very friendly and accommodating staff. One of the nicest dining rooms in Astoria.
Food is excellent and fresh! Service is great, water was always being filled, our order was taken quickly, food comes out quickly. Staff is always friendly. We love going back time and time again.
Great food HORRIBLE service
Enjoyed our dinner very much. The spanakopita is made to order and the best I’ve ever had! Perfect pastry, perfect filling. Our waitress from Thessaloniki took great care of us. A trip to Telly’s is like a trip to Greece.
Welcoming staff and generous portions! The food from meat to seafood to vegetables were all incredible. Full flavor and cooked perfectly. We enjoyed a long meal and had friendly attentive wait staff. Definitely coming back!
Fabulous Fabulous as always Service and Food perfect
Such a nice place, excellent food and service.
The coffee (espresso) however is not up to par.
Love the food and service. My favorite place to eat.
Telly’s transports you to Greece for a couple of hours as you dine enjoying the ambiance and delicious fresh Greek cuisine.
Great food and great service.
Great food and great look and feel. It was hard to have a conversation (not recommended for a first date) because it was so loud but overall loved it and can't wait to go back.
Loved the food everything was delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
Great grilled fish - very friendly and competent service.
We love Telly’s! The staff is always friendly and the food is so fresh ! Super fun, local Astoria spot ! It does get loud during prime time.
We love Tellys and go back everytime
Excellent food and service!
Telly’s is an outstanding option for excellent Greek dishes, grilled octopus is a must, entrees are grilled to perfection. Service is great. Make a reservation for Friday and Saturday nights, the place is packed.
Telly's has delicious grilled seafood and the restaurant looks amazing. However, they only serve the dishes family-style (one big platter) instead of having individual sizes. I think it would be better if they also provided that in case guests don't like the same things.
Telly is the best....service outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mia, our wait person, was terrific. She knew the menu and all of the dishes as if she was Greek. (Of course she IS Greek as this is an authentic restaurant!) Great food, nice people.
Grilled snapper was fine, the lemon potatoes sub par, the dessert dry and the appetizers ordinary.
Very crowded Saturday evening and a noise level that made hearing yourself talk rather a challenge.
Have eaten here on at least one other occasion but after this last visit I intend to eat elsewhere in the neighborhood. It is not as if there was a dearth of Greek restaurants in the area.
Four of us had dinner. Nice time starting with valet parking! Greek salad and calamari excellent start. Lamb chops, branzino, and dorado perfection. Unfortunately the pastitio was not good/gummy and dry-so bumping down the stars. But will for sure be coming back.
My wife and I have been dining there for some 30 years and knew it when it was less than 1/2 the size. The ambiance is great and we are treated like family. Fresh, fresh fish and great Greek dishes, all of great quality. To us it's worth the 45 minute - 1 hour drive and crossing 2 bridges. I look forward to their new venue in Portchester NY - it will be 1/2 hour and only 1 bridge . . . and I'm sure more than worth it.
What a bad experience at Telly’s Taverna.
1)Grilled Kallamari served room temperature almost cold. It is grill kallari HELLO have to served HOT.
2) Grill veggies room temperature, almost cold probably and not flavor at all. Grill veggies for $20 too expensive for the crap they brought at table. 3 pepper whole, 1/2 zucchini sliced, and 1/4 of eggplant sliced total cost market price probably $1.5 and they charge $20. They pre grill veggies they just put on “grill plate” to server.
3) Grill fish came room temperature. We order whole fish, not Deboned. Suppose to be hot or to release steam when you open it. Nothing. Also fish was over cooked.
It was descent presentation of food. You are serving the grill food on “grill plate” just make those “grill plate” warm or keep it warm when you serve the food. Also, deliver the food as fast as possible when grill kallamari get ready, grill veggies DO NOT PRE GRILL, do it at moment for the price $20 you are charging.
Grilled whole fish should not be over cooked, otherwise someone Malakas request so.
It is just Taverna in block. People have to be served the food in right way. Grilled food must served hot.
Went for a late lunch with some work mates. Great to be able to talk over excellent food and drink.
Wonderful, as always!
Thank you for a great night!!
Great experience. Food was fantastic. So fresh!
The food was stale, looked like previous day’s leftovers. We were unnecessarily rushed. The ad stated we’d get a free carafe of wine, but received nine ! I will not be back ! A total ripoff !!!!
Loved Maria was an outstanding hostess and took wonderful care of us!
Would have given a higher overall rating if the bathroom was cleaner and smelled better.
As always was great and delicios food!!!!!!!!!!
First time there and we had an amazing experience. The staff couldn’t be any nicer and accommodating and the food was terrific. We will be back for sure.
Amazing service, food and ambiance! Made my Valentine’s Day memorable!
Love!!!l everything was delicious.
