I happened upon Telio on menu pages and, happy to see another Greek restaurant (finally) ordered take out lunch. The person on the phone was fine and the food arrived in a timely manner. I ordered the Greek salad and avgolemeno soup. The salad was fresh and very good. The soup was not a classic avgolemeno (it had carrots, celery, chicken and orzo in it - instead of the classic broth, egg, lemon, and rice or orzo). It did taste good, though, and was very hot when it got to me. This isn't cheap greek food, but fair prices for uws take out. The salad is large - could feed two and the ingredients seemed fresh and were good quality (real salad, and tomatoes that taste like something). I also ordered baklava, which was good. I will definitely order here again. I don't know how the atmosphere is, because I ordered delivery.

We have eaten here several times. The food has never been bad. We haven't tried the non-Greek items except for the pizza delivery. The service is a little wierd as the wait staff don't have specific sections, so it is not unusual to have three staff members in a row stop to take your order even if you have just given it. The baked fish is always excellent, as is the greek sausage and the baked greek cheese appetizers. Pizza is okay, but probably the about the best in the neighborhood now that Pizza Bolla is gone. We will be back on a regular basis.

I ate here on 10/10/2008. It was a beautiful Friday late afternoon. The place was busy and we found a spot outside. We had the Gyro Plate, which was gargantuan and a bargain at $12.00, though a bit unwieldy for the unitiated Gyro eater. The Spinach Ravioli was very tasty and cost $14.00. Oh, but the prize of the evening was the Paidakia (lamb chops). They were cooked to perfection at medium well, a delicacy well worth the $20.00. Mmm mmm mmm! Definitely treat yourself to these! The server was very pleasant and seemed genuinely pleased to engage us in conversation about the menu.

I don't know if it's a trend in NYC restaurants lately, but it seems everywhere service is going downhill. What happened here probably tops them all. The place always looked crowded so we thought we would give it a try. mistake. The food was ok, probably just as good as the diner down the street, but the service was not good. Our waitress came, took our drink order, spilled my beer, then took our food order and that was the last we saw of her. She left in the middle of our meal!?!?! We had to get our check from another waitress who had no idea what we ate, nothing. Absolutely horrible.

I have ordered from them takeout, which I know is never as good as eating in but, I ordered the salmon and it was very tasty. The Haloumi was pretty good too The bad = The salad was a little wilted, and the tomato close to rotten The rice was a little too greasy The Haloumi should have been grilled a little more Still, I will definitely eat from their again.

i ordered lamb souvlaki and the meat was tough as nails so i sent it back, when they replaced it with a chicken kebab, it was much better, but still nothing to write home about.

I ate here last night and the food was very good. Tzaziki ($5), baked feta with eggplant and tomato ($8), and stuffed peppers and tomatoes ($14) were all top notch. The menu is expansive and varied. The outdoor cafe is comfortable, though being right on Broadway it can be a bit noisy. The indoor area is basic yet looks clean and comfortable. Service was good enough.
