Their house made spanakopita is one of the best that I've ever eaten. The atmosphere is nice to get together with friends, family, or for a business lunch/dinner.

Coming in late afternoon, we didn't have reservations but nonetheless we were seated quite soon in a full setting. Service was still fast and friendly (thanks Demitra!). Excellent hearts of Romaine lettuce salad: the cod was superb - it just opened up in it's tomato sauce resting on long slices of carrot, tomato and potato.

This was our first visit to Kellari. The specialty is whole fish. We tried the restaurant on a tip from friends. We had salmon, risotto, spanakopita, salad, and wine. The wine list is extensive but pricey. The food in general was average, nothing special. The server was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. While there was nothing wrong with our meal, I...

My boyfriend and I went here for brunch on Sunday - just OK. We bought a coupon for a $50 pre-fixe brunch for two people on Gilt City. The restaurant did not have properly labeled table numbers for the staff or their food runners were not properly trained. As soon as we were seated a staff member tried to give... More

The modern room is attractive and you can see a tempting selection of fresh fish on ice, which are sold by the weight. If you don't choose one the staff will pick the largest, they have their ideas of how to cook them, you can discuss options. The food is delicious, our large group found the lobster excellent, as was... More

Its a Greek restaurant, with beautiful fish, appetizers, dessert and wine. They had a lunch deal so you could enjoy an appetizer, entree and dessert for $30. It was... More

The fish are fresh but the presentations are average, not exceptional, which is expected at this price range. Large , spacious and expensive. Service is good.

I utilized a groupon for a lobster dinner for two on sunday nights only. Since, the inauguration events closed my office for the week, I had time to check this place out with my date. The Lobster dinner for two, is restricted to a set of appetizers, either grilled or baked Lobster, a glass of wine and two desserts. The... More

We were looking for a great lunch and just happened to find Kellari Taverna at happy hour time. We tried their $1 oysters and the Bilini. Both were awesome! Great prices and awesome food! Love this place!
