Ethos - Gallery
The food is amazing but evenThe food is amazing but even if you have a reservation you have to wait at least half an hour! I have been here twice with my husband, and both times we waited 30mins before getting the table.... And we were only 2 with a reservation!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA+ all the way aroundIt was my first time at the restaurant and Im very happy with my experience. The staff was friendly from the hostess to the server, the food was absolutely delicious (ordered the grilled octopus, Greek salad, and the entrees fish & lamb chops), & not to mention the style/decor they have reminds you of being on the stunning island itself. I will definitely be back!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNot happy that while I didNot happy that while I did check in with the maitre d', the restaurant contacted you to say I did not honor my reservation.
Wonder why?6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing greek restaurantDefinitely will return to this great greek spot......only downfall was the snooty maiter'd who clearly gives better table preference to those he knows. Everything was super delicious!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPlace is JumpingWe went for dinner at 6:30pm on a tuesday and by 7pm every table inside and outside was taken. There were people waiting to get in. Food is great and the place has energy.. A neighborhood gem.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat fishWait for a nice warm night and sit outside if noise bothers you.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty Fun Greek - Delicious FoodHOWEVER -- very very very loud. Hard surfaces and music turned up very loud too.
Nicely decorated, with windows open due to the warm weather we felt like we were on a Greek Island.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening!I would highly recommend Ethos Gallery! I went with a group of friends and the food and ambiance were terrific. All of my friends loved and said they can't wait to go back!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but not GreatWe thought this restaurant had an excellent atmosphere and setup, with the windows surrounding open to the fresh, summer air, and the seating gave that Greek feel with the white tables and chairs and the hints of blue. The service was excellent. The food was not as expected. We had very high expectations regarding the food, thinking it was going to be one of the best Greek food we would have eaten. This was not the case. Do not get me wrong, the food was very good, but it was nothing special. Everything from the appetizers to the main entrees was very good, but not great.
I still would definitely recommend this restaurant, but if I am looking for some WOW Greek food, I would find somewhere else.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Fish
Costa, out waiter,Great Fish
Costa, out waiter, was courteous, efficient, and very pleasant.
We enjoyed the entire experience5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMneighborhood Greek gemWarm and inviting staff, happy buzz of satisfied diners, interesting and varied menu and most important, excellent food. Close your eyes and you're on an island in the Mediterranean. Definitely a return-to venue!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurantThe food is always fresh and delicious from appetizers to desserts. The service is superb as the staff is there to please you. They're generous - portions are big and prices are so reasonable. They always try to accommodate your extra requests mostly for no additional charge. The place is truly Mediterranean. Ethos rocks!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI LOVE ETHOS!!!my friend rented it out for a party a few months back and I fell in love with the ambiance...went for Mother's Day and had a great meal with the family...you feel like you are in Mykonos!!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was very good, servicefood was very good, service not so much. However the staff is very friendly, it helps if you speak Greek. I will go back hopefully the main course will not take over and hour to come.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance and friendly staff!Every time I go to NYC, I try to go to a new restaurant. Usually I use Open Table to hone in on certain neighborhoods, and I pick based on reviews, but also on the restaurant's website. It was Ethos's website that sold me. Then I was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance and extremely friendly staff!
I'm a relatively new vegetarian, so still trying to get my bearings on what exactly to order. My Greek salad was pretty good. I guess I incorrectly assumed that there would be lettuce in a Greek salad. My date's salmon looked really good, but obviously I didn't try any because I'm a vegetarian.
All and all great restaurant because of the ambiance, staff, energy, and food preparation and presentation. I'd definitely recommend!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne hour wait WITH a reservationGreat food, SUPER lively place. Staff is disorganized
And need to improve their processes! Great food
If you know you will wait a long time to get seated.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for large groupsAwesome! Fun! Excellent service! Great food! We dined with a party of eight. Perfect choice for family style Mediterranean dining. So many courses, kept flowing and timed well. We were never rushed. The server was fun and added a lot to the dining experience. As the night got on, the restaurant noise level increased. Definite must and will return5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful but a bit pricey..wonderful but a bit pricey.. quite...but it was lunch not dinner4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is a neighborhood gem andIt is a neighborhood gem and a fantastic spot!!

Excellent octopus!Excellent food! As good as anything we have had in Greece. We look forward to going back. We especially enjoyed the octopus. However, the restaurant is very loud so the acoustics are challenging. Not ideal for a romantic dinner for two but great for a group or non romantic dinner.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily friendly, Warm service,Family friendly, Warm service, Great food and good wines - simple Authentic and very reaasonable prices !4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love the selection of freshWe love the selection of fresh whole fish.

I have to admit Greeks know how to have fun and celebrate every moment! We will return again next week4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the first time weThis is the first time we have eaten here on a Saturday night and will never again. The wait was long, it was too crowded at the bar to get a drink while waiting and the hostess and maitre d treated all of us as though we were stupid. When finally seated, we were a party of four, they tried to squeeze us into a table previously occupied by 2! We refused and 40 mi utes after our reservation time were finally seated.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service are great.The food and service are great.

The noise level is deafening due to blaring music!! The staff is extremely friendly but, one has to wait beyond their designated reservation time. They need to work on their scheduling.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreek chiqueWe enjoyed our time one more time at ethos gallery ! what a great experience ! Stamati's Hospitality made us feel that we were in an Island in Greece - Very Authentic food, interested cocktails infused with Greek liquors and ofcourse very cool and hip ambience accompanied with european music !4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA Rare Gem on 1stI don't live in NYC but everytime I do come through I make sure to never miss an outing to Ethos Gallery! The food is so tremendously good. We usually tend to order a whole pile of small plates because A)there are so many, and B)they are so good! The place is always hopping so don't go if you are planning on a very quiet romantic night. Music is pumped through all night and whenthe lights go down and you hear the music ramped up and the Hawaii 5-0 theme song, play along cuz it's someone's birthday!! The staff is enthusiastic and you can't beat a freebie when it comes to fresh Greek desserts served family style, on the house! Ethos Gallery is not to be missed!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMArrived with an Open TableArrived with an Open Table reservation and it surprised the restaurant. They had to do a bite of juggling. To accommodate the 45 min wait, they compd each of the 5 people in our party a glass of wine. Greek salad was wonderful, fish and lamb dishes spectacular. Complementary assorted desserts were a nice surprise. I would come back again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is AlwaysThis restaurant is Always consistent in their food prepration. A must go to, the Staff is very friendly and helpful!!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & service, evenGreat food & service, even on an extremely busy evening the day of the parade for Greek independence4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHad me and my husband's birthdayHad me and my husband's birthday party here with 20 other friends. Everyone had such a great time and were impressed with their experience. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. Would highly recommend.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLocated on 51st St and 1stLocated on 51st St and 1st Avenue it is a great place to enjoy greek specialties. You can order whole fish from a display stand and while they prepare it you can have a relaxed conversation while having appetizers like tzatziki, hummus or grilled octopus among others.
The service was very attentive and our entrees wild black sea bass (plaki) and lamb chops were excellent. Since this is a favorite place for many people I recommend advance reservations. This is a real gem.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM2 hr later!Only problem is that they have a habit of over booking which I find annoying... if make a reso it should be honored. Been there several times, cause luv the food, but they in habit of seating you 1/2 hr later.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant. The foodGreat restaurant. The food was great and the service terrific. Our waittress, Dina, was fabulous. The cushions on the benches could use a little plumping up so that I don't feel that I need to sit on a phone book and if only they could do something about the noise. The place was jammed on a Monday night...that says it all.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good neighborhood mediterraneaVery good neighborhood mediterranean. Service was excellent but the restaurant is noisy.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStill our favorite restaurant!Still our favorite restaurant! The food, service, and staff are amazing!

thank you ethos....
we shall return!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is consistently goodFood is consistently good and service is very good most of the time. I feel bad to generalize after just 2 tries but they may not really honor reservations. Waiting wouldn't be as bad but the bar is often taken by diners as well. When there is a spot at the bar, it's really not so bad to have a drink and an appetizer while you wait for your table.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTo the gills!The place was packed TO THE GILLS on Saturday night, and we were able to sit right away -- 3 of us squeezed onto a 2-top. Many of the tables around us refused, but we found it to be a cozy, delightful meal. The fish was positively delectable! In fact, all of the food was outstanding and we had a drink at the bar afterward--the wines were outstanding too. Wonderful bartenders, warm & charming. We'll definitely go back!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is ALWAYS ConsistentThis place is ALWAYS Consistent and worth the trip. A must Dine!!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceI love Ethos. The staff are very accommodating and the food is good
Great neighborhood place where I truly meet my neighbors and enjoy the experience3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat staff and wonderfulGreat staff and wonderful food! Try a lot of appetizers. The fresh fish was great. A little noisy but a vibrant scene. Bar best for waiting for dinner - not a hang-out. Been there at least 6 times and never had a bad meal - nor have any of the people I went with. And, save room for the complimentary desserts you'll be offered! I'll be there again in two weeks!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe host is always pleasant,The host is always pleasant, attentive, and prompt. I had a reservation and I wasn't made to wait at the bar like at most restaurants. I always have my favorite, the Greek style lamb chops. They always cook it as requested. My two friends were there for the first time and really enjoyed their food and the ambiance. The Greek salad, sardine appetizer, swordfish, and veal entrees were fresh, delicious, and perfectly prepared. Our waitress, however, started to take our order without noticing that she hadn't taken our drink order yet. The complimentary desserts are always amazing! My friends and I will definitely dine here again.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and goodExcellent service and good food make for a memorable experience.
We didn't have our regular waiter, Cosmos, who is very service minded and pleasant.
But,our new waiter was very good (don't remember his name).
The experience is like eating with your family, friendly and warm.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for their weekday lunchGo for their weekday lunch prix fixe -- a sensational meal. For dinner?
