Everyone was raving about it, and so my friends and I went. We had an exceptional culinary experience with the authentic Greek cuisine that tasted fresh from the garden and the sea. The extensive wine list was prime, and the service was outstanding. Great for dates and groups. The food was scrumptious and the candlelit ambiance stunning. Will definitely be going back.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Excellent place for fine diningThe beautifully decorated Ammos Estiatorio was very welcoming. Our table was ready upon arriving for a 6 pm reservation for 6 people. It was an 80th Birthday celebration and was disappointed only with the service. Kind of expected a Greek speaking waiter when you go to a Greek restaurant. Besides that the food was impeccable and presented so wonderfully that you enjoyed it that much more. The fresh fish was brought to you prior to ordering and was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants the quality, epicurean taste, Mediterranean ambiance but mostly an excellent value for all that. Not too pricey considering Manhattan location. In Athens, this place would've cost double!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early and wereWe arrived early and were happy to have a drink at the bar. A pleasant treat was a tray of delicious Greek cheeses and toast slices.
The wait staff presented the fresh fish selections tableside -- we all ordered fish and it was delicious. Served grilled, whole and deboned -- it melted in our mouths.
The appetizers - Greek Village salad, Saganaki - traditional flamed cheese, a delicious assortment of dips, and outstanding fried calamari were a fun shared , family style way to begin our evening.
I would highly recommend. The atmosphere was fun, beautiful and enjoyable. I will definitely return.

The menu is varied and there are plenty of choices. Our favorites are the whole branzino and dorado simply grilled. You can't find better and fresher fish at any other restaurant in Manhattan. The appetizers are superb and we love the grilled octobus and fried zucchini. Service is very attentive and friendly. Best bonus of all is that they have happy hour at the bar from 4:00-5:00 weekdays with half priced drinks.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service.Outstanding food and service.
