“Very good Greek food near Times Square”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We decided to try this placed as a pre-show meal taking the chance that we may eat too much and fall asleep during the show. Nonetheless, we found the restaurant to be cozy and accommodating. The service was prompt and the food was quite good. The prices were average compared to most of the restaurants in the area and we would definitely recommend giving this a try.

“Good food in a cosy atmosphere”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

The restaurant is just off Times square. My spouse and I went there on Saturday evening and had reservations; the place was packed but nonetheless the décorations and the brick wall give the place a warm and cosy taverna atmosphere.
We shared the grilled octopus and spinach pie as appetizers, as well as the main dish consisting of lamb shish kebab and a side order of greens. The portions were generous, all cooked to perfection and very tasty.
Dafni has a a good selection of greek wine that you can order by the glass. Prices for food and drinks are reasonable. This is the kind of place you want to come back to and freely recommend to friends.

“Good Food Good Service at a reasonable price”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner with friends on Saturday night before the Super Bowl. The restaurant was understandably crowded but we were seated on time and the device was prompt and efficient. The food was well prepared and the portions generous.

“Really good Gyro”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

The gyro we had here was really good. The pita was really good and tasted fresh. On the negative side, the staff weren't very personable and had to be asked for water. Cost was $20 before tip for two gyros.

“Predictably good Greek fare in the Times Square district”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

While not quite as good as the Greek food we find back home, it was still quite good, and with all the 'chain' restaurants in the Times Square District, this is a far better option in my opinion. We had both the Souvlaki, as well as a sampler plate and salad and it was all prepared quite well. Perhaps a bit on the expensive side, but all in all quite good.
