Love everything I've had here. I have brought friends, colleagues and relatives here for delicious meals. You must have the octopus! Try it, You'll like it.

Met with kids living in the city and then we went to a show from there. An excellent meal and two hours was not enough. Kids stayed later and the owner served them a dessert wine on the house. We returned for coffee after the show and the owner came out with a special dessert and told us the coffee and deserts were on the house. While we were there we saw another couple who had been there for brunch, were at the show and returned with another couple for dinner. Yep. That kind of place. Food was excellent and they appreciated that we were enjoying a long meal - as opposed to trying to rush you out. We will certainly return.

I routinely order from this greek restaurant. The food is always fresh and tasty. I typically order the salmon and specify it cooked medium rare because it can be overcooked. The restaurant is friendly and responsive. I think this is as good if not better than Uncle Nicks.

I have eaten in Greek Restaurants all over the world, including in Greece. For a Restaurant outside of Greece it was better than average. Most restaurants outside of Greece will adjust their preparations to the local incredient availability and local restaurant goer's tastes. This is common with any ethnic fare. If you want the real thing, go to Greece! That being said, the food at Dafni was very good. The tzatziki was the best I've had at a U.S. Greek Restayrant!

This place is a 1980 NYC diner disguised as a modern upper scale Greek tavern with an attractive menu. The Gyro must be that Kronos frozen meat glue similar to what is sold in the street and not worth the heartburn or indigestion after affects. Their dips, calamari and chicken souvlaki tasted like something I could buy in bulk from major supermarket. This place is truly just another overpriced diner and not worth the time or money.

Sorry to say but I have to agree with the previous Cold Seafood reviewer. I really wanted to like this place and it looks nice when you go in but as we all know looks can be deceiving right? My gyro meat was cold and also grizzly. I expected a little better that street cart quality. But can you imagine my surprise not to mention my outrage when I ordered the Dolmades ( stuffed grape leaves) only to discover that they are from a can? Excuse me but what self respecting Greek restaurant would dare serve stuffed grape leaves that come from a can? I guess they must think their customers are so stupid they can't tell the difference. Never again.

I stumbled upon this place when my parents were looking for a preshow dinner a couple years ago. They raved which lead me to try. There's no turning back now - I crave it whenever I'm in the area. Great greek wine and delicious food. I'm definitely in love with Mediterranean food and this is a top contender for best greek I've had in the city!
