    The staff were VERY hospitable and friendly and we were seated quickly. Food was delicious - Asian Chicken salad was especially tasty and refreshing on a hot day in the park. The kids liked the chicken tenders. We avoided lines and long wait times by booking ahead through Open Table. The restaurant fills quickly.

    The food was pretty good when we finally were served. The appetizer came out after the main course. They brought out the salad with dressing and it was supposed to be on the side. My son's pizza wasn't right 2 times but he ate the second one. If there is a wait, ask to sit outside. There were tons of people waiting to be seated but there were 6 empty tables outside.

    We stopped by for lunch while visiting the park. I had the mixed greens salad with salmon which was delicious. The only negative was that the dressing was applied too heavily and was a little too sweet for my taste. Still, the dish was flavourful and the salmon was perfectly grilled. My wife and daughter enjoyed their dishes too. Service was just a little slow, but our waiter was helpful and polite.

    This was such a fantastic place! When you factor in that most of the fast food type places at Universal are $9 for a meal, the $10-$15 price tag seems like a bargain! Of our 4 days in the parks, we ate her 2X! The risotto and pasta of the day both were always good. And the flourless choc cake w/ the PB ice cream was heaven!

    Via OpenTable, we secured reservations 2 days before our lunch. When we entered Mythos, families were sitting everywhere on the floor of the lobby waiting for available tables. We strode up to the hostess, said we had reservations via OpenTable, and were quickly seated in a coveted boooth. Food, atmosphere and waitress were all excellent. We had the shrimp tempuri sushi for an app -- very tasty! My husband and I ordered Pad Thai -- it was different (creamy red sauce), but good. The kids ordered a typical pasta and red sauce. Bread was incredible. Wish we had room for dessert. Highly recommend Mythos!
