Grilled Seafood Combination
Salmon, Flounder Fillet & Jumbo Shrimp
Tomatoes, Cucumber, Onion, Feta Cheese

Wonderful greek food. The waitstaff is incredibly friendly with a nice quiet ambience with greek music in the background. Have had lamb kabobs as well as grilled calamari. Both dishes were the best I have ever had. We have started with the dips and pita- excellent.
Reasonably priced- I would recommend highly.
Awful seating. Way too noisy. Fish fry. Coming here for many years. Going to take a long break.Also, place needs a good scrubbing.
I would recommend not to go on a Friday night. It was extremely busy and the overall quality of the food was not good. I think because everything was too rushed.
Telly’s Taverna has been a family favorite of ours for the past three decades. It is the best place for Greek seafood - hands down. The fish is always fresh and cooked deliciously. Service is always friendly and efficient. The owner, Diana, is always an attentive host. I recommend it very strongly.
Awesome as always!
The food is amazing!
Great Place to bring a group of friends and share the wonderful food.
Excellent dinner with my family (6 of us) on Sunday. The food was all incredible, from the appetizers to our meals. I had the lamb chops which were maybe the best I’ve had. Service was great and everyone was very friendly. Love coming here!
The appetizer dip dish was great. I ordered Red snapper and it was dry, and tasteless! My wife ordered lamb chops and loved them. Too noisy however.
Are we enjoying this incredibly authentic Greek fish dinner in Athens....or is it Astoria? Amazingly fresh and delicious, as always. Thank you Diana and staff for a great night out! See you again soon....
The food was very good. We had not been there for a while. The last time we were there we ordered extra tzatziki sauce and they added a charge to the menu. This time w has the 3 dips, which come with a very small bowl of pita chips, so we ordered more and they charged us $4.00. This feels like a ripoff. Also the valet parking is great except when the vale5 tries to give you the wrong car and argues that you don’t know your car.
This is my go to place the owners the staff are fabulous the food is exceptional the atmosphere is amazing it’s just one of the best places in Astoria
Had a great meal while catching up with a colleague. The saganaki was sublime, lamb chops perfectly medium rare and the service, exceptional.
Food was a little off Friday night,was not consistent with our food
Delicious food. Loved the salad and branzino was excellent.
Valet parking is very helpful because parking is difficult in the neighborhood.
Food was beyond AMAZING!!!! Highly recommend the Hallomi cheese!!!!
The food is incredible and our waitress was amazing. You can’t go wrong with Telly’s!!
It was a very nice experience overall. We dine with our friends to celebrate my wife's birthday and had a wonderful time. Everything that order was tasty; grilled fish and lamb kebob were great. We want to come back and try other entrees :) there...
Had the octopus and fried meatballs. I’m a huge fan of octopus, and I think they should take this dish off the menu, it just wasn’t very appetizing. The fried meatballs lacked flavor. I was offered a complimentary dessert and it was absolutely delicious! My waiter Rafaella was also amazing and made my experience much more delightful.
Everything was great, staff were every accommodating. Food was delicious and perfect to celebrate a birthday with family.
We went to celebrate multiple girlfriends birthdays and LOVED IT!!!! The staff was adorably professional, the food outstanding and the atmosphere super comfortable. We all highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.
Awesome as always!
As always, everything was on the money!
I’m a huge fan of this restaurant
Delicious and super fresh seafood! Take advantage of the seafood combo for 2 or 4 - it is a deal! Also, take advantage of an early dinner to receive half carafe of house wine!
Friendly service, amazing food. What else do you need to know?
Katerina our waitress last night was a (10) !!!
Fast understood our needs that we were under pressure to go to an engagement. She didn’t brake a sweat . The food is always excellent the seafood is extraordinary! Fresh from the sea! We had complimentary wine and desert what is better than that ! PS my two friends are definitely coming back and telling all their friends so so impressed they were !
Bravo, good job!
Always enjoy our dinner here... Food is delicious
Food was great! Price wasn’t too bad.. service could have been better. We asked for sautéed onion on the steak and the waitress just flat out refused to accommodate us.. well, she didn’t even try... it was our anniversary- I mentioned this when I made reservations, but we got an ordinary table.. with no kind of decorations or anything... otherwise food was really tasty.. but overall experience could have been better.
From start to finish, excellent Greek food, great service, can’t recommend it enough
Always the best experience great customer , feels like family and excellent food. AlwAys to perfection.
Always a go-to place to get good food and service. Everything is fresh. The seafood is always on point! Just as good if not better than that "other" popular Greek restaurant people go to in the neighborhood ;)
We had some appetizers and we ordered St. Peter’s fish. Everything was fine as was the service. It’s a fine restaurant and we travel there from Staten Island.
Waitress was way too busy to provide good service. Management was self involved and not paying attention to tables and
The food was delicious, the service was excellent. Best baklava I’ve had since visiting Greece!
Everything was delicious!!!
Looking forward to dinner at Telly’s because a friend raves about it. Disappointed. 3 of us ordered the branzino and all three fish were over cooked!! When we told the waitress she brought over some lemon and oil sauce. Not the same as a moist fish! However she did bring a free dessert. Don’t know if we’ll return.
Always great! Everyone we bring is delighted. Whole fish is terrific.
Food is consistently delicious!!
