A word from Ammos Estiatorio
***** SEAFOOD GREEK RESTAURANT ***** Located in the Heart of Midtown, steps away from Grand Central Terminal. Ammos provides upscale, authentic cuisine from various regions of Greece. The menu features a wide array of mezedes and pristinely fresh seafood as well as whole grilled fish. Ammos is the Greek word for "sand" and the restaurant’s airy, open design, light woods and weathered stones conjure the sun-drenched atmosphere of the Greek islands. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Food quality has dipped in recent periods with portion sizes leaving a lot to be desired. Service was adequate but noise level was much higher than what one would normally expect for a Tuesday night. May need to consider shifting the seating plan."

  • "I went there for restaurant week! What a surprise! Ammos was using their amazing prix fixe pre theater menu for their restaurant week! Simply the best in the Grand Central Area! Although the place was extremely busy their service was tremendous! The good thing is that they have this menu all year around, week days until 7pm and Saturdays all night! I ll definatly be back for their octopus and lamb chops anytime!"

  • "Perfectly fine food and service. The waitress recommended the octopus, the meatballs, and the zucchini fritters. They were all very good."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Ambience was the only saving grace to our dining. Food was lacking in basic seasoning (salt). But the most disappointing of all is the service. The courses did not come out punctually, and despite following up thrice on the dessert and advising them we are in a hurry- it took over 20min and a check to arrive first before we left our tables upset. Awful. Just awful."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Ammos is a very solid midtown restaurant. The food at this Greek fish restaurant is very good. The lunch special is reasonable given the location, ambience and quality. My only complaint is that the general pricing is a bit on the high side, but I would still recommend it as the other attributes of this establishment more than offset that one flaw. I would certainly return."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We were pleasantly greeted upon arriving, the manager checked back with us a couple of times and the server Denny knew his stuff. From the basic Greek we were very impressed by the unusual selections such as roasted piglet ( it was very good) to a wonderful selection of fresh fish. Portions were very good and for New York City in the shadows of Grand Central station was good value!"

  • "Recently had the opportunity to have dinner at Ammos and overall i would have thought it would have been better for the price I was paying. Wines way over priced but it's NYC right next to GCT so you can't be that surprised I suppose. Food like I said was good not extraordinary. Service was great though and ambience was very nice. Couldn't hear the music even when restaurant was just half full."

  • "We had a wonderful evening with friends who came in from NJ to NYC to have dinner at Ammos Estiatorio. The reasons: first, food was wonderful--fresh , deliciously prepared fish and excellent side dishes--both Greek and Continental ; it was quiet on Sat. night so we could catch up and hear each other ( Ammos is packed during the week ), ; good service--although the waitress was fairly new and had to ask a number of questions regarding the menu ; very accommodating staff. We all enjoyed the evening and plan to meet there again. p.s. The $38 prix fixe was great also."

  • "I thought the food and service were very good. We had the pre-fixe lunch for $33 which was worth while. However, when it came to desert and me and my guest both ordered the sorbet, we received a small single scoop. I thought they should have given more. I would certainly go back and would recommend it to anyone who likes Greek food."

  • "We arrived in NYC around 10;15 pm and wanted a light and healthy meal. We looked up local restaurants on Open Table and made a reservation at Ammos Estiatorio for 10:30 pm. We arrived by 10:48 pm and they were nice enough to keep the kitchen open for us. The service and attitude was impressive and the food was outstanding!!! We started with the most delicious grilled octopus appetizer. Best we've ever had anywhere in the world! We also ordered the puree of broccoli soup, which was cream-less and very tasty! We shared the sea bass entree, which was also amazing!!!"

  • "The fish is so fresh, your waitperson will show you your whole fish before it is grilled. In our case, they had not been delivered the two particular fish we originally selected (they get two deliveries per day), so our waitperson suggested two similar fish. We were not at all disappointed, far from it. The fish were grilled and lightly sauced to perfection. "

The shared appetizers were great with the zucchini and eggplant being outstanding. We had white snapper, tuna and salmon, all beautifully prepared. Dessert was excellent as well. The service was attentive. We highly recommend this Greek/seafood gem near Grand Central. "

  • "I went here for lunch with my boss. We had a 12:30 reservation, seated immediately. We order our food and appetizers within 10 minutes. An entire hour later we were served our appetizer (hummus and pita) a quick preparation food. And yet we waited an hour for it. It was 1:45 when we were served our meal. My boss had to hurry along our waitor and request the check at the same time we received the meal. If you have a time constraint, I would not advise coming here. The food was average too. Nothing special."
