    We tried Ammos for the first time on Friday evening. It was a bitter cold evening, so the warm, welcoming staff and restaurant were appreciated. The food was good, the service was excellent, and we enjoyed our dinner.

    Brought us back to visits to Mykonos and Santorini. Excellent food (Greek salads for both - Gyro platter for me, Mousaka for her) and wine (Gavalos from Santorini). Service was excellent.

    We love Greek food and we were excited to try this restaurant. Both entrees were delivered on cold plates. . . Our waitress checked in a couple of times, but spent most of our dinner time chatting loudly with the folks in the booth next to us (old acquaintances apparently). When the booth on the other side of us was bussed, the table was cleaned off with a spray that contained so much bleach, the smell floated over to our booth. Although the entrees were good, we were bothered enough by small portions, big prices, and cold plates to not return any time soon.

    What a pleasant evening. We've been to other Greek restaurants in the area, but nothing like Ammos. My wife's sampler platter was great, my fish was perfect and the belly dancer was entertaining. What could have been better?

    For a true, authentic Greek restaurant, Ammos' is the place. The menu is extensive and the food was plentiful and delicious. I even took home and had enough for the following night's dinner. Be sure and ask if there are specials because our waiter did not inform us of such.

    If you like good Greek food, this is definitely the place. We went here for dinner one night during our vacation in Virginia beach. There were 7 in our party, including 2 children (9 and 10) and everyone enjoyed the food. Ordered the Mezze sampler appetizers and all were excellent, especially the Keftedes (meatballs). Portions were large. The Pastitsio was great. Service was terrific. Our waitress was extremely pleasant and made us feel at home. Wish we lived closer, as we would definitely go back on a regular basis.

    The restaurant is very appealing, the food was excellent. The only thing that I would perhaps say in the negative is that it is loud, so it's difficult to carry on a conversation without raising your voice (which only exacerbates the problem). I suppose it's a tough thing to fix due to all the hard surfaces (which is part of what makes the decor there so appealing). A very nice dining experience regardless.

    Dined with other couples on a Saturday night. Friendly, efficient service.We had a delicious cheese appetizer wrapped in flaky phyllo. I enjoyed the fish special which was a grilled whole red snapper. Others enjoyed the moussaka and the grilled salmon. After 8 PM the belly dancing show began. The dancers were entertaining but the music was very loud and took away from the enjoyment. We left while the dancing was still going on. We definitely will come back!

    Wonderful Greek food right off Great Neck Road. The fish we had was cooked perfectly and the sauces we chose were outstanding. I especially like the seasonal vegetables that had wonderful spices. Tried a nice Greek red wine that was outstanding. The portions were generous and bread and olive oil sere also very good. Overall a great experience and the belly dancer on Sat night was a lot of fun - first time there and we took out of town guests who were very impressed and want to come back next year. Our waitress had only been on the job for 3 days and she was great!

    This was my first time at Ammos. We were quickly seated and our server was at our table within the minute to introduce herself and get our drink order. The food was delicious! And the Greek red wine (a syrah) was not bad. The service was well timed - not too fast or slow and we were allowed to linger and talk. Delightful evening - we'll be back!

    Good food, not outstanding for the price, but left satisfied. My companion had an upset stomach later that night, but there is no way to know if it was related to his dinner (meat lover's platter) or just a fluke. Our waitress was very friendly and was professional. We would probably return.

    The food is good, but the restaurant itself is very noisy. If you are looking for quiet, this isn' the place. The server was very good, but the kitchen didn't help much. My wife's appetizer, dolmades, came out before mine, which a simple cup of soup. it was a good five minutes betweeen the arrival of both appetizers.
