I was staying at the St. Regis and decided to try this place since it was in walking distance. I dined on Sunday for brunch and had the pre-fix menu. I ordered the spanakopita, market fish special which was a tuna tartare on a white bean puree with a cucumber salad, and the yogurt cake. I found the food ordinary,... More

This is a decent greek restaurant specializing in fish, with overall good quality dishes. I found the octopus appetizer especially tasty and properly prepared. The wine list was rather a disappointment. The server was no help at all with selecting a proper wine for our dishes. Greek wines were not very expensive, but also they were rather flat and thin.

This was the second time I've been to Kellari. The first was a business dinner, and I had such a great experience that there was no question that I would return. My daughter is graduating tomorrow, and dinner here was perfect for our group of 8. Fish was delicious, as were the traditional Greek appetizers. Try the octopus! Noise level... More

This place blew me away. The best Greek food I have ever eaten. The fresh fish choices were wide and varied. The lamb rack was great. We had four appetizers on the table, one better than the next. The desserts were incredible, especially the Aegean Trio. I would highly recommend this upscale, very nice restaurant.

There were 7 of us, 2 of them children, for dinner on a Thursday night. It was a great meal, from start to finish. We had several dishes for appetizers. They were all good, but the Kellari chips were fantastic! Thinly sliced eggplant, fried crispy on the outside and served with tzatziki. I had pan seared tuna that was crusted... More

Great place, great food, came to celebrate my wife's birthday and we got a free champagne bottle. The black meditarían sea bass was the best. My wife had shrimps the size of lobsters.

Excellent lunch while travelling for business. Food was beautifully prepared and served and the service was excellent. I ordered the crab burger which was delicious and my colleagues had lunches that they all raved about in terms of quality and taste. I hope to come back soon!

Had many meals here - business, social and even used the large room for private parties. Never been anything less than excellent food and service. All the ingredients are fresh and well cooked, simple dishes made authentically. The decor is nice and comfortable, modern with some traditional touches. Tables are far enough apart to work for both romantic dinners and... More

Classic Greek seafood restaurant. Food was absolutely amazing , my wife and I both had the lobster, and the service was great. Atmosphere was very romantic since we went later in the evening. Would definitely recommend.

Even if you just have the prix fixe menu, the grilled seafood is as fresh as any you will find at a traditional seafood restaurant, perhaps more so. You can go to the fresh fish on ice displayed, and choose the type and weight you prefer of many different kinds, or just ask the waiter for recommendations. Not only will... More
