This was the second time I've been to Kellari. The first was a business dinner, and I had such a great experience that there was no question that I would return. My daughter is graduating tomorrow, and dinner here was perfect for our group of 8. Fish was delicious, as were the traditional Greek appetizers. Try the octopus! Noise level... More

This place blew me away. The best Greek food I have ever eaten. The fresh fish choices were wide and varied. The lamb rack was great. We had four appetizers on the table, one better than the next. The desserts were incredible, especially the Aegean Trio. I would highly recommend this upscale, very nice restaurant.

There were 7 of us, 2 of them children, for dinner on a Thursday night. It was a great meal, from start to finish. We had several dishes for appetizers. They were all good, but the Kellari chips were fantastic! Thinly sliced eggplant, fried crispy on the outside and served with tzatziki. I had pan seared tuna that was crusted... More

Great place, great food, came to celebrate my wife's birthday and we got a free champagne bottle. The black meditarían sea bass was the best. My wife had shrimps the size of lobsters.

Excellent lunch while travelling for business. Food was beautifully prepared and served and the service was excellent. I ordered the crab burger which was delicious and my colleagues had lunches that they all raved about in terms of quality and taste. I hope to come back soon!

Had many meals here - business, social and even used the large room for private parties. Never been anything less than excellent food and service. All the ingredients are fresh and well cooked, simple dishes made authentically. The decor is nice and comfortable, modern with some traditional touches. Tables are far enough apart to work for both romantic dinners and... More

Classic Greek seafood restaurant. Food was absolutely amazing , my wife and I both had the lobster, and the service was great. Atmosphere was very romantic since we went later in the evening. Would definitely recommend.

Even if you just have the prix fixe menu, the grilled seafood is as fresh as any you will find at a traditional seafood restaurant, perhaps more so. You can go to the fresh fish on ice displayed, and choose the type and weight you prefer of many different kinds, or just ask the waiter for recommendations. Not only will... More

I've never had an experience as bad in any restaurant anywhere in the world as in this one. Highly overpriced, food nice but expensive. But the service was terrible - slow & unhelpful - and the manager extremely unpleasant. At the end of the meal restaurant announced that the bill can't be split and paid for individually. For large groups... More
