    Molos is a Great Seafood restaurant. The fish is super fresh and the display of seafood by the kitchen is amazing. Service was attentive and our server was a big help explaining the Greek wines. definitely a new jem in N J waterfront.

    The views of Manhattan from this new restaurant take your breath away...but the food was just ok (despite a very hefty price tag) and my party found ourselves asking if it was our server's first night on the job. Not impressed.

    Molos is beautiful. It would be hard to find a nicer view on the water over looking midtown New York. However, the service is SLOW, the food is average (that’s being generous) and it’s expensive. Go to enjoy the view, have a drink and some mezze. Go to Son Cubano or the Chart House where you still get to enjoy the view but the food is delicious food and the service is prompt.

    My wife and I went on a double date to Molos for restaurant week. The food was good, staff was friendly and the view of the city was pretty awesome. It is a smaller place and was pretty much empty. A few couples showed up during our meal but the service was pretty slow. I had the lobster-stuffed tomato for an app (very good), grilled bass (very good) and the custard pie for dessert (left a lot to be desired). My wife had the rubix-cube salad for an app (a must order), Moussaka for entree (decent) and the custard pie for dessert. I think they could do a ton more advertising/marketing and Molos could become a hotspot in Weehawken. Overall: it's walking distance so we will probably be back but maybe just for drinks and apps.

    I was extremely disappointed with the food at Molo's. I ordered the fish tacos and they were so saltly that after three bites, I couldn't eat them and I left them on my plate. You couldn't even see the fish inside. It was a mashed concoction which looked like dark tuna. The waiter didn't even notice. I have NEVER been one to send back food--I have heard too many horror stories about doing that. I do regret not saying something on my way out. The appetizer salad was okay. The dessert was a dish of yogurt with honey and walnuts. The only other option was ice cream. Overpriced and certainly nothing special. I would not go back again.

    No personal service. Ordered 2 appetizers and received 1. Ordered 2 side dishes and received 1. There was a table of 12 next to us with a party and they had someone looking over every detail. The waiter then went on to blame the issues on the runner. Beautiful restaurant with great food and an unbelievable view of Manhattan.

    I was reluctant to go after reading so many negative reviews, but thought we should give it a try. Unfortunately, the reviews were right. Octopus was chewy and the rest of the food had no flavor. The baklava was terrible. We couldn't even cut through the phyllo. Very disappointing. Our waitress was terrible. No knowledge of the menu and no concern that we left plates full of food behind.

    This is the third time we have been to Molo's. It will probably be the last. The food is very good, the service is VERY uneven. Our one waiter was a pro, but wasn't keeping watch on our table. We had to flag him down for things. The hostess and the busboy had not been properly trained, although they did seem to be eager. Molo's is too expensive to be uneven. It is also very loud. I wish them well, but, if we go back it will be after they open the outside deck, and then perhaps only for drinks unless we sense things have moved up to a more professional level.

    Our server saved the entire experience - returning an under baked spinach pie and bringing back a perfect one, offering a taste of wine before ordering, moving our table when my friend was freezing under an uncapped a/c vent - all factors that overcame some problems that included a pounding engagement party on the second floor of this stunning location.

    We are a group of professionals that fine dine often and this place is not in that league. Server was nice but not attentive to details. Food quality was poor taste as if fish products were old not fresh. The main course was brought out in stages rather than all 4 of served at once the food temp was not hot. Most of us left food on plate from poor taste. There was no management walking and checking on guest experience. The way the bus boy cleared the table was like a diner.

    OK We tried it twice: My service on both occasions was friendly-Andrew was super knowledgeable. This is a very expensive experience for so-so food. Had the selection of cold appetizer ( 4 spreads w/Pita) Calamari (super salty) and Mussels ( no mussel meat found in shells) ; 3 Jameson on rocks ( they had to go buy it) a Martini, 3 white wines ( supposed to be Happy Hour). Sent mussels back $130.00 without tip ! Mussels weren't removed from bill, manager never approached, was told we were given a free drink ( did we even discuss that ?) but all was on bill. We wanted to like this place- but it's a major NO GO. Management clearly has zero idea how to run food/bar service!

    We were transcended upon arrival-felt like we were in the Greek Islands. The decor was all white and blue and right on the Hudson River with glass wall over looking the water. And we were so ready to love this place. They accommodated us with a window table (it took a while). And then the food. Nothing was good and servers were clueless about what they were serving. Even the waiter had to look up on his pad what was put on the table! Great place for drink but do not eat!!

    The seafood brought out and displayed on ice just as it comes in delights the eye and gets you ready for the taste delights to come. It is all super fresh, cleanly prepared, a delightfully presented. The wait staff are very professional and knowledgeable, not just with the food, but also the selection of Greek wines- not something you see all the time. Highly recomended

    Arrive at 6 seated at 6:04 orders for drinks and appetizers at 6:15 appetizers arrived at 6:42. Sent first round of drinks back. Coke and gin and tonic had zero carbonation glass of rose was horrible, tasted like extremely cheap wine not worth the $10/glass. Second gin and tonic had carbonation but used lower quality gin. Coke was still flat, red wine showed up at 7:11 and wasn't much better than the rose. Starting talking to the table next to us they were also unhappy. At one point they suggested we get up before the entree's arrive and just leave. We didnt and the over cooked tasteless entree's showed up at 7:22. Three entree's, chicken, steak and salmon, all over cooked and tasteless. No kids menu for Mother's Day.

    Other than the view of NYC, it was a very bad experience. We were never made aware it was a buffet lunch. Food was bland. Pasta & rice were overcooked. Frittata was inedible. Mussels & oysters were overcooked as well. The bread was stale, and there was no butter available. My kids even refused to eat the sausages as they were so greasy and tasteless. Our waiter was inattentive. Staff was too busy preparing for dinner Overall, service was the worst for a $500 buffet for six people. $500 for such bad food and service is outrageous. If you pay with a credit/debit card, make sure to keep your receipt until the charge is posted on your account because they actually added 20% tip without our authorization. I will never go back there.

    The food at Molos was good, but nothing special or innovative in my opinion - solid Greek food and the seafood was fresh. It's expensive - you are paying for the view and to eat in a fancy atmosphere, not the food. However, I think they still need to work out some kinks in providing this "fancy atmosphere" - we were seated for at least 45 minutes before our server took our food order - and the restaurant did not seem busy! Wine was poured for everyone at the table, except the person who tasted it, who was left with just a small amount of wine and the bottle was taken away to ice, so we had to wander over to pour our own wine. We ended up getting double of one of the appetizers we ordered (a mistake in our favor, we didn't get charged). Meh.

    1st time here; food very good and great atmosphere - nice space, great view of city at right time to see cruise ships leaving and got seated next to window. If I had to quibble on my specific experience, it'd be service - seemed to take too long. But, on a quiet relaxing Sunday afternoon, I didn't mind that much. There was an incorrect bill offered, but quickly remedied. All that said, the table next to us was experiencing a disaster. A 7-person Easter brunch with older adults turned into a mess, with apps and entrees taking too long and being served at odd inconsistent intervals, and with them obviously in irritation, it was even more galling that management didn't directly apologize. Very distracting for us, but a shame for them.

    This restaurant is Very expensive for what you get. This Greek restaurant ran out of lemons! The 1 ingredient that's used with every item at a Greek restaurant! The food was mediocre. The fish was tasty but too many bones. I understand that it's hard to filet a fresh fish completely, but this fish had too many bones, especially big ones that shouldn't have been missed. We were also surprised that the bill which was so high. The drinks were okay, not great for what you pay for. The only great thing about this restaurant was the view since it has a clear view of New York. Also, the restaurant is very hidden from the road.

    Molos recently opened where Arthur's Landing stood empty for far too long. Being a chef myself and passionate about food, I was skeptical about the food (especially being on this side of the river) but I was pleasantly surprised. The food is always fresh and consistently delicious, the staff is extremely friendly AND always remember us, and the views are outstanding no matter where you sit. Molos doesn't advertise in a big way, and it can be hard to miss, but it's definitely worth seeking it out and going for a nice dinner. It's worth the money and the fish is the best I've tasted around NNJ.
