Diner Reviews
  • "We were on Long Island and had dined at Ethos in Manhattan, so we decided to give the Great Neck branch a try. The service was friendly and the staff were warm and welcoming. The wine list was reasonable and varied. Unfortunately, my soft shell crabs were a bit rubbery, but the lamb shank was great. So it's definitely worth a try."

  • "Service is always very good. Sometimes the noise level is too loud when restaurant is full. Food is very good and help is always very helpful"

  • "The service and the Greek Salad were the best part of our experience here. The other small dishes did not seem super fresh, like the spanakopita and the bean salad. The Greek red wine I selected also seemed stale, although the Greek white wine selected by our server was better. I will not return here."

  • "Food is great, and portions are large. Save room for dessert, because you'll get a little piece of Greek pastry on the house."

  • "We have dined here several times. It is not high end food, but almost everything we've tried has been good or very good -- and you really can't go wrong with their perfectly grilled, always fresh, whole fish. But this time my wife ordered the lemon-chicken soup, and I'm sorry to say it was a tasteless, gloppy mess. We tried adding salt, then pepper, but nothing helped. So stay away from that, enjoy their other fine dishes, and you'll have a pleasant time."

  • "My daugther and I went on Mother's day and it was the 2nd time dining there. The first time the grilled octupus was very good. On Mother's day it was a very limited menu. My daughter's grilled lamb kebob was very chewy. I don't think I will be returning there any time soon."

  • "We had the salmon tartar special and grilled octopus. Both fresh and delicious. The whole fish we chose for our entrees were perfectly cooked. Service was very nice. We go back to this restaurant often. We have hosted dinner here for a group as well and loved it. "

  • "Although the food was good and the maître d very nice we waited more than a half hour from our reservation to be seated. there were empty tables but they wouldn't seat us "waiting for a big party" that never materialized."

  • "Greek food at its best. All dishes fresh and prepared perfectly. Recommend the Grilled Calamari, Grilled Salmon, Pear Salad. But can not go wrong here. Very friendly wait staff. Nice atmosphere. A bit more expensive then most Greek restaurants but worth it"

  • "Ethos is hit and miss for us. We ate here with a group of 8, our second visit, and everyone seemed to be pleased. My husband had a steak and it was really good, but the side of mashed potatoes were like glue. Bleck. I ordered the lamb shank which was also very good, but the side of orzo was not good. It was just orzo smothered in tomato sauce. Not sure when we'll be back."

  • "Everything was very nice. Food was very good. Scallops appetizer/ filet mignon-delish. Waiter seemed a bit new, but will get it down. Live jazz. Very nice night. I recommend this place. Noise level rating solely due to Live Jazz playing-nice!"

  • "We have been here before and each time we enjoy the most wonderful selection of fresh fish. Preparation is superb and service is very attentive. Along with the fish we enjoy the varied selection of. traditional Greek appetizers. Every meal ends with a complimentary sampling of wonderful Greek pastries for the table. Best of all this meal won't break the bank. Can't wait to go back,"

  • "Food was good but they were out of octopus which really put a damper on the appetizer I ordered plus a singer midweek... noise level too much."

  • "We were a party of 7 on a Wednesday night. It had rained heavily all day. Maybe that's why there was only one other table taken. Naturally, it was quiet in the room, and we had all the attention we could ask for. Most of our party really liked their entrees, but two who ordered the salmon were not happy. They were too dry and too thick for their tastes. The whole bronzini, however, was marvelous, as was the swordfish. The restaurant is nicely decorated, and the chairs are roomy and comfortable. This is a good choice for Greek/Mediterranean food."

  • "Restaurant has changed ownership and does NOT have a liquor license. Sign outside declares "BYOB, No Corkage Charge." Duh. New Ownership, despite lack of license) selectively & surreptitiously offers bottles of wine to CERTAIN guests to keep them from going elsewhere to dine. The food stays fairly palatable but the entire experience from kitchen to staff to management, seems uninvolved and disinterested in providing a satisfactory experience"

  • "Hadn't been here in some time and wasn't sorry I returned. Had the dinner prix fixe and enjoyed it. Started with salad and then had the bronzino. While my friends and I were assured it would be filet, quite a number of bones were still in place. The accompanying veggies were ok, the bread delish. Our server was delightful. By the time we left, the place was packed. It's obvious this place has a following. For me, a good fallback restaurant."

  • "Service was nice, but very unattentive. Waited a long time for menus, never checked on us. Everything else was good. Service was very nice when they showed up."

  • "We loved the food but were handed a menu of a wine list with wines no longer available. When we were finally offered the "current" list 1/2 the wines were still not in stock. Then we tried for a rum and coke and there was no spiced rum!!!! Very frustrating. The food is EXCELLENTT but don't go there expecting to hear any specials or ge a glass or wine you want! We. Invited another couple there and. Found ourselves wishing we chose another restaurant since they are the type that enjoy a good wine list. Also, the ages of the customers are 75 at a minimum. It used to be a hip restaurant with incredible food$ now its a restaurant with great food. It has been knocked down a solid notch."

  • "I dinned here with two of my friends and we all thought the service and the food was excellent. We had grilled octopus, squid and shrimp for an appetizer. Our entrees were - Char grilled Baby Lamb Chops, Half Roasted Chicken With Lemon Potatoes and I had the Grilled Shrimp in some sort of wonderful red sauce and Lemon Potatoes. We all enjoyed our meals. They even gave us desert, that we shared, on the house. The food was fresh, flavorful and like I said, the service was perfect. I have no complains about my experience. I will surely go back and recommend the restaurant."

  • "Went for a celebration, early mother's day. It was nice. My cousins were there a few times before and seem to like it. It's hard for me to say how good it is since I'm not crazy about greek food but it was pretty good. The bacclova was excelent."
