Kellari is Greek for "wine cellar."  Kellari Taverna offers traditional Greek cuisine which includes a variety of Mezedes (small plates or starters) and raw and marinated assorted Saganaki dishes prepared with Greek cheeses. Signature dishes include grilled whole fish, lamb, steak and other specialty entrees.

The menu starts with dips like melitzana, smoked eggplant with black sesame, and skordalia, and is followed by a unique selection of raw and marinated fish like the signature Greek barbouni, a red mullet soaked in vinegar, rosemary and olive oil.

Traditional whole fish is sold by the pound and grilled with lemon and olive oil and herbs.

Kellari offers 350 Greek and international wines by the bottle and dozens by the glass – ample choice for pairing up with an extensive menu of contemporary Hellenic fare. Seating Capacity is 220, with semi private rooms for up to 50-80 people, including A/V capabilities.

Classy touches offset any disappointments Kellari Taverna impresses with efforts
Tom Sietsema, The Washington Post | January 24, 2010

After my companions and I have surveyed the menu at Kellari Taverna, a server in a crisp white jacket asks, per tradition, "Are you ready to look at the fish?"
And, per usual, there are tough decisions to be made at downtown's new Greek restaurant. We gather around a canvas of shaved ice, neatly topped with no fewer than 10 options, and listen to our guide introduce them.
