My co-workers and I were looking for a restaurant in the area, and decided on Kefi based on reviews and the fact that we wanted fish. We arrived early for our reservation, but were seated immediately in the almost full restaurant (on a Thursday evening). We ordered the spreads and the Grilled octopus for appetizers. The spreads were very good (although I would have liked a bit more pita bread) but that octopus was EXCEPTIONAL. If I'd known, I would have had it as a main course. The taste of the grill pervaded not only the octopus (a large, thick, tender piece) but also the chick-peas and tomatoes is sat on. Between us, we cleaned the plate. We had the grilled striped bass and the swordfish entrees. Both cooked to perfection, and the accompanying potatoes and vegetables were different on each plate, and superb.
Oh, and the prices were VERY reasonable!!
Although crowded and slightly noisy, there was a lot of staff and the service was excellent. It is obviously popular, but it was comfortable and we had a lovely evening. Can't wait to be back in NY and come back here.
