This place is really amazing. I am so glad they re-opened the location. The menu is a simple selection of Greek/Cypriot foods with a few specials added on. The food is amazing. The service fast and location is pretty much in the middle of town.

Kanella Grill and Kanella South used to be my two favorite restaurants in the city - so much so that we arranged to have our wedding reception at Kanella South through a brunch buyout of the entire restaurant, to be held in May 2018, after...More

Very impressive, elevated Cypriot/Mediterranean cuisine in a modern setting that pays homage to rustic roots. Many of the dishes are done in the wood burning oven or over the wood grill to excellent effect. Many choices on the menu, good service, small but smart and...More

This is my 12th visit to Kanellas. I continue to be impressed by the great service, food and wines. I brought friends from the burbs last night. We all know Saturday night is the craziest night of the week to evaluate a restaurant. But Chef...More

Nice variety on menu. My food was mediocre. The stuffed skate was not tasty. All the other 4 meals were acceptable. Wouldn't return Noise level...high din.. Sorry... the tables were jammed and seemed to be a favorite in the city. We had reservations needed..

Really great food with a range of options. Veg Moussaka really top notch and the daily dips a great way to start the meal. Warm, inviting space that has a cool vibe, but welcoming enough to easily accommodate families, groups and couples all at once....More

Solicitous service and great food--my first taste of Cypriot food was divine--a variety of textures and tastes all beautifully presented and explained. This is Mediterranean food--elaborately spiced mixtures of pasta, pastry, savoury (sustainable, grass-fed!) meats, and vegetables both fresh and cooked. Lots of olive oil...More
