Kellari has a nice, quiet atmosphere for a first date, but the food was just alright. I ordered the octopus to start and the lamb chops for an entree. It was all okay, but I’m in no hurry to go back.

Outstanding Greek style food, efficient and friendly staff, timely and helpful in the pre show rush. All four of us enjoyed our food and wine. The staff made sure we made our broadway show. Bravo.... we will return.
