- In from out of town going theatresusanismVIPDined on 8/22/2014This was a real find. Great warm Sumer evening, windows open. Had wonderful lamb carpaccio. Wine great. Food light and fresh and great to visit after theatre. Recommend to others!Special Features:
- Yummy but NoisyrestaurantjunkieDined on 8/20/2014The tuna skewers were cooked perfectly, and the greens and grains a nice complement. the luncheon dish was reasonable priced at $13. But service from the kitchen was slow, and the noise level was not conducive to conversation at anything other than a level just below shouting. I have been here for dinner when it is somewhat quieter, but the amount of wood and brick still creates a somewhat harsh sound level.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Terrific!JackDined on 8/3/2014Had a wonderful early dinner here and everything was great. We love greek food and EOS had such an original, different, and delicious spin on many traditional greek dishes that we ordered...it made everything a new experience! Plus the lamb burger was in a class by itself...soooo good! I'm hookedSpecial Features:
- Greek DiningLuvNYDined on 7/31/2014Nice food when you want something different and affordable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- EOS Snack Lunch reservationgodmatDined on 7/25/2014I was going to be in the area and had heard from couple of friends that this place is a sleeper. so I decided to check it out. The Manager/Owner greeted me at the door and suggested several option as to where I like to sit. The waiters were very informative and quick in getting my order in as I only had 1 hr. The wine list was small but well priced and great selections from Mediterranean region. The food was delicious and straight forward, clean presentation and very tasty. I love my main course Yellowfin Tuna on skewers with olives - DELICIOUS! I will certainly make sure to be back soon and try their dinner menu. Ps. I heard from guest around me that the Burger was one of the best they had......Special Features:
- They Did it Again!bobbarbaraVIPDined on 7/19/2014First, there was the GREAT Snack Taverna in Greenwich Village. Now there is the relatively new and FABULOUS Snack Eos. In sports this would be called a championship 2-peat and for diners who appreciate uniquely imaginative and inventive cuisine and cocktails, this would be called manna from heaven. The menu differs from Snack Taverna's but retains the excellence of Taverna's fresh produce as well as meat, poultry and fish options. Service is professionally efficient and customer friendly. The room is attractive and comfortable.Special Features:
- Unexpected findOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/28/2014We are just visiting New York for a long weekend and walked past the restaurant, it looked nice was close to our hotel and decided to go back the next night. We were not disappointed!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tasty!HellsKitchenfoodieVIPDined on 6/12/2014The 3 dip sampler was awesome! Ask for extra pita. My pork chop was a symphony of flavors. This spot is not big but has have great vibe. We will return!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great spotBeachcomberVIPDined on 6/7/2014Good food very well presented. Friendly ambiance and clean decor. Good wine list. Had the whole bronzino with 2 sides - very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- alicedDined on 5/30/2014Cocktails weren't good. Stick to wine and beer. The amuse Bouche was weird but the menu food very good Waitress a bit unfriendly and also acted as bartender (possibly why cocktails were poor).I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very EnjoyableTVernonDined on 5/17/2014We had a delightful dinner at Eos, the food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be backSpecial Features:
- ChazDined on 5/14/2014great Greek-inspired food--innovative take. The space is small so the sound level can be a bit over-the-top as it fills up with patrons.Special Features:
- innovative GreekValueHunterVIPDined on 5/13/2014Two of us went for Tuesday dinner at 7. Only two other tables had diners. Service was friendly and quick. Shared appetizers (3 dips), seared chicken (delicious!) and thick pork chop. My chicken had Fiddlehead ferns as side - tasty and unusual. Waiter described wines like an oenophile. Total was $150 for two with $40 wine, shared appetizer, no dessert, tax/tip included. Friendly, quiet place with above-average food. We're coming back.Special Features:
- Loved it!bluebirdinhellskitchenVIPDined on 5/10/2014I've walked by many times - I live in the neighborhood - and wasn't sure how it would be since it's so close to Port Authority (not really a fine dining area!!). The food was excellent. The staff was great. I've already recommended it to friends!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- EnigmVIPDined on 5/9/2014Eos is a small place. The food was very tasty. The place was very loud even when the place was only about a third full. I would not recommend this place if you have a party of 7 or more but definitely take a date here just be prepared to yell a little. Service would have gotten a higher rating but the staff seem a little off. I had to ask for water twice from a different waitress. I sense they were trying to help each other out but it seem a little disjointed. They did give us extra pita for our dipping sample which was a plus. Also, for a appetizer (6 - 8), entree (23-28), dessert (8), a glass of wine (8), is about 45 dollars and their price fixe meal does not really save any money that I can see.
- DecentSpartyVIPDined on 5/7/2014Waiter was lovely but took 30+ min to get us two lunch specials - kitchen issue - and then they weren't hot (funny since tuna was over cooked). Dips were good but if you are a Greek rest that has to be good.I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 5/3/2014First time dining at Snack EOS and we will be back. Very friendly service, great food and fun wines to try.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- mediocreOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 5/1/2014i like their soho location better. but decent food and serviceSpecial Features:
- Pre theater speciallateDined on 4/26/2014We were an hour late for our reservation due to horrible traffic and rain, and then asked them to hurry our food as we were trying to make an 8 Pm show. They were super accomodating, friendly and understanding. Not a word about us being late. I was quite frankly surprised being in New York City and all. The restaurant is max a 15 minutes walking distance to the theater district, so very convenient, and quite cosy and I would deffinately return for dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 4/22/2014A great place for a pre-theatre snack. The only reason I give a "good" to the ambiance" is its unfortunate location, right on 9th and 39th, steps away from the Lincoln Tunnel and the Port Authority. We didn't mind, but if you are looking for a quiet evening, beware The food was excellent - lamb sliders are a must- and the service was genuinely spectacular. great recommendation on Greek wine, and food choices/portions. I will definitely go backI would recommend this to a friend.
- Our go-to in the neighborhoodFritoPuenteDined on 4/21/2014Solid, well prepared food, friendly and attentive wait staff. We have been for brunch, lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great foodAnnMDined on 4/12/2014When you walk in you will think you made a mistake. Then the food is delivered and you will know it was a good choice. The staff was very accommodating but the kitchen was slow. One person in our party didn't get his dinner until the rest of us were almost finished. The dips were delicious and everybody enjoyed the food including a 2 year old in our party.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Interesting food - reasonably priceCatharineDined on 4/5/2014I live in the area & am always on the lookout for new places slightly "off broadway" to avoid competing with the theatre crowd for a 7:00 reservation. It's crazy to have to make reservations a week in advance to dine before 8:30 on a Saturday night. The staff is attentive and helpful on drinks and menu selections. The food is Greek inspired, not traditional Greek offerings. The menu isn't huge, but everyone found something interesting. I stayed vegetarian while my friends chose the fish and pork chop entrees. We all enjoyed our selection and felt satisfied when we left. The portions are on the smaller side but that just meant I didn't have "take home" . At $30 per person (no cocktails, tip included), it was good value.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Give it one more try!RIONYVIPDined on 4/2/2014The food was delicious and the restaurant a cute surprise but the service was sporadic, I would definitely try it again but hopefully they will work with wait staff as they seem new and not very organized.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Snack Eos = yumOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 3/24/2014I ate there on a Monday evening at approx. 6pm. It was very quiet at the time. Just 2 other tables. It is a small restaurant so I imagine if its full its a bit noisy. I only had the cauliflower, brown butter dip and the meatballs but both were very good. And the greek white wine was delish!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- not Greek, but goodunsatisfiedVIPDined on 3/18/2014Went to this restaurant due to the fact we are in the neighborhood and thought it would be great to try something new. The food is definitely not Greek. Being Greek born and raised I can say confidently this could be considered Mediterranean, but not Greek. The lamb sliders to DIE for...so good. The prawn skewers are good and the Lamb dish is scrumptious. The rice pudding was described at traditional...was nothing traditional about it...a bit too loose for my liking and the lemon was a bit too strong...I really miss the cinnamon, but got pine nuts on it instead. The cookie was a cookie...not traditional but ok. I really enjoyed the meal and we plan on going back for brunch when the waiter we had will be there...he made it sound great.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Snack Eos, part of Snack...2BeatDined on 3/15/2014but not as good. Snack Eos is fine. We had the burgers which were delicious but the menu was very limited and not nearly as Greek, or as tempting as Snack Taverna. No atmosphere to speak of but pleasant and good service. If I was in that neighborhood, probably going to theatre, I would consider going again but it's definitely not a place to rave about (like its downtown sister).
- Inventive GreekOpenTable Diner Since 2001VIPDined on 3/1/2014Snack EOS serves modern Greek food -- nothing too traditional. Smart versions of dips and spreads, saganaki, lamb meatballs and beet and quince salad. Interesting grilled proteins on skewers. Only one truly poorly-conceived dish: Bronzino wrapped in grape leaves. The fish came out like a cut sushi roll, four cylinders of Bronzino wrapped in grape leaves, rather than nori. Ruined the texture of the fish. But everything else was terrific.I would recommend this to a friend.
- what everyone else said is true.salemwitchVIPDined on 2/24/2014i was so interested in the prior reviews that i printed them out and took them with me. all true--including food recos. we were very, VERY pleased to find such a great place in that neighborhood. the welcome was exceptionally warm, there was a dandy little amuse-bouche (soup in a small glass), and the service was friendly and efficient. and i'd add a couple of menu recos to the previous ones: the cauliflower/brown butter dip is deLIcious, as is the kumquat martini. ditto, ditto, and double-ditto on everything everyone else said!Special Features:
- wildly inconsistent foodnoneVIPDined on 2/21/2014Wanted to love this place, but disappointed. Taramasalata and red pepper dips were good, although the smoked mackerel garnish on the red pepper was minuscule. Leave it off, rather than make diners hunt for the little shards. Cauliflower dip was cloyingly rich with brown butter; needed better acid balance. Grilled sardines were good, if 3 fillets can be counted as an appetizer--that is a stingy 1 1/2 fish. This is the first time I have ever complained about portion size! Salt cod fritters were disastrous: stuffed with currents and so much paprika that the balls were orange and the flavor of the fish lost--we didn't finish them. Service was either intrusively fawning or MIA Only 4 tables occupied, but our wine glasses often remained empty.
- Exceeded expectationsCharnedVIPDined on 2/17/2014This is not your usual gyro-in-pita Greek fair: The restaurant is cute, the saganaki was delicious, the skewers superb (we ordered the lamb and the veggie with portobello, haloumi, and fried artichoke), and my only complaint about service is that they didn't refill my water quite often enough, even though the restaurant was empty (we had a 5pm dinner). Definitely a must if you like Mediterranean food.Special Features:
- Excellent food.LeeWDined on 2/14/2014Although the food was excellent, the portions were on the smaller side.Special Features:
- Not your mother's greek restaurantLolaDined on 2/13/2014Our dinners were delicious. We had tuna and chicken respectively. I have never eaten Greek food prepared quite like this. Some of the vegetables were pureed which provided a perfect low calorie sauce. Food portions were perfect. Wine list was unusual - all Mediterranean choices and tasty comparables. Service was truly exceptional - Stefano was our waiter - although it felt like he was the host or owner. The decor was uncluttered, warm, balanced & candlelit - a lot of painted and stained shiplap on walls and ceiling- like the hull of a boat. We were in NYC for 4 days and this was our favorite restaurant. Cost was also reasonable. The entire experience was comfortable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Taverna on 9th AveSippingsisterVIPDined on 2/11/2014Modernity mixes w/tradition. First the food. Modern interpretation of Classic Greek fare. My companion ordered the lamb -- perfectly prepared. I had the tuns - again first rate. Service was excellent -- attentive w/o hovering. Only wrinkle $18 for a shot of single malt? Come on guys yr on. 9th avenue not Madison.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Cute FindMsljf67Dined on 2/11/2014Picked this place on a whim. Good food on a cold February night to catch up with a friend. I really liked the Griiled Oysters and the eggplant dip with pita bread. Need a few more wines by the glass to chose from. I expect the menue to expand as it gets going but definitely worth a trip!Special Features:
- Greek Gem near Penn Stationevrgreen1VIPDined on 2/8/2014So nice to have a good culinary option in this typically spare area for good food. Charming owner/manager, great inventive Greek small bites and main courses. Go there now!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing foodJoshVIPDined on 2/4/2014I had been to Snack downtown but this was my first time at Snack Eos. The food is simply phenomenal. Definitely try the fried oysters and saganaki to start. The lamb loin entree was fantastic. Highly recommended.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious riff on GreekChelseaGirlVIPDined on 2/4/2014We have eaten here now several times. Each time the food has been delicious. The ambience and location may be a bit off-putting for some, but if you're ever stuck near Madison Square Garden, Penn Station or Port Authority, this is a wonderful little place to recover.Special Features:
- a wonderful delightboboDined on 1/31/2014all was fantastic-freindly prompt service and a menu that was adventurous especially for a neighborhood restaurant. the food was seasonal, fresh, and perfectly preparedSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great to find another restaurantPsycheVIPDined on 1/31/2014Great to find another restaurant in the theater district/Times Square area - which generally is a bit of a wasteland. Essentially a Greek restaurant, the food is interesting and well prepared - the fish and lamb delicious and the appetizers were very tasty.I would recommend this to a friend.
