I had been there once before, and saw, because of the crowd, and the short staffing, that with my sister and bro in law along this time, we would have to get there a little earlier. We were the first ones in (@11:25, and within an our every seat at the tables and the bar, were taken. As busy as it was, I have to give props to Maria (who even though busy), took time, with a smile, to take our picture. The other waitress helped out, and, between the two of them, we had a leisurely and outstanding lunch. First, we asked about a similar to wine for Zinfandel, which wasn't on the menu. Maria gave us her recommendation and it was fine. Secondly, there were four of us, so we ordered four apps, one pick apiece; that plate was cleaned. Thirdly, our entrees came; a skewered chicken and Salmon wraps; both came with some sides, and Maria suggested we have all four of the sides; two per entrée; good suggestion, although we went with Greek Salad on both and one other different one on each plate. Then, one of the highlights; two cheese fondues, a great meal ender and a prelude to dessert. We got two, the Cheddar Cheese and the Gorgonzola; both were wiped clean. Outstanding. Finally, to top things off, we asked for the dessert sampler with some baklava, some coconut macaroons, some almonds and some fruit with a cup of chocolate for dipping: a veritable bargain for the price. This little out of the way off the beaten Broadway path in Hell's Kitchen is a real gem, and we'll definitely go there again. Just get there early, and expect a leisurely paced gastronomic experience. And the NYC price is as fair as any. When we have a large group like half a dozen or more, we still go to Carmines, but for a small group, this just might be our favorite new restaurant, and with all the restaurants we've gone to in our 25 year theatre experience starting with a lunch, that's a strong statement

We stumbled into this very New York hole in the wall coming from Lincoln Center. We ordered the large tapas plate and the two of us had trouble finishing it. The food was great and there was a whole lot of it. We will be coming back.

I travel to NY once a year and always make sure I make a stop or two at Kashkaval. I've tried many of New York's restaurants and wine shops and this little gem is one of my favorites. The Beet Skordalia and Olive Tapenade are the best items on the menu. I love me some Kashkaval.

Really nice place to have either a full meal or just small plates with wine. Everything was simple and delicious and incredible value. Wine prices were really great too. Servers were gracious and professional about a couple of missteps. Yes the place is loud and cramped but so is NYC.

Such a great surprise! People in my office kept raving about it so I finally went the other day for lunch with a friend. Wasn't too crowded, but we opted to sit at the bar anyway. We split the large tapas plate and it was SO GOOD! I was a little worried it wouldn't be enough food for the two of us, but our server assured us we'd be fine... which we certainly were. Am definitely planning a trip back here asap and highly recommend checking it out.

Food is delicious. The price is right. The atmosphere could be very nice, but the restaurant is too noisy. Too loud to hear companions across the table. Ate on Thursday evening--exited Kashkaval with my ears ringing. Nice food, but a bit too cramped for comfort. Strained my voice to hold an audible conversation with my dinner companion.
