Kellari Taverna Review

G3B | Apr 12, 2009 06:44 AM

Three of us went after a Saturday matinee. Both food and service was excellent. I made a reservation although at that early hour it was not necessary. The host was very nice and as he walked us to our table at the back of the restaurant, he inquired whether we were pre-theater and we said no post-theater. We had a great table far away from the noise and had a great meal.

We had two of the three-course prix fixe and an assortment of spreads. The spreads were caviar roe, eggplant, red pepper feta and cucumber dill yogurt with a hint of jalapeno. Eggplant was too bland and my least favorite next to the feta but only because I dislike feta. Only taste of jalapeno on the yogurt was the big jalapeno sitting on top of the yogurt. Caviar roe was excellent and not too salty as it frequently is. The other 2 apps were grilled sardines and roasted beets with greens and garlic almond mousse. The entrees were a grilled lavraki, meditarrrean sea bass which was delicious, simply grilled with some capers on top and fabulous and vegetable moussaka which was quite good too. Desserts were vanilla custard with phyllo dough and baklava. I loved the custard and not the baklava but then I never like baklava. Always find it too hard and too sweet. We told the waiter that we were sharing everything and he brought us plates and put all dishes in the middle for each course. He also brought us serving spoons with each dish. Really a good meal and I can’t wait to go back. Lastly, when we left it was quite busy with many people waiting out front which I did not notice until I went to the front to go the restroom and we were never rushed at all. As a matter of fact, we had to request the check after dessert and coffee was finished which we said was an added credit to their service.
