While on a weekend trip to NYC my husband and I met a cousin at Dafni for dinner. We had not made reservations but were there early (after a theater matinee). Initially the hostess said she could not seat us for 60-90 minutes, even though there were several empty tables (presumably they were reserved). We were going to look for someplace else but it was pouring rain, so we gave our name. Luckily after about 15 minutes she found us a table.
I had the Greek salad with grilled calamari, which had very good flavor. My husband and our cousin both had lamb shank in a tomato-based sauce. The meat was very tender but our cousin thought the sauce was too sweet, though my husband liked it. We shared baklava for dessert, which was fine. Portions were generous and prices were reasonable.
The dining room was noisy but had a pleasant look and vibe.
