The food and service were both phenomenal. The wait staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The staff was friendly and helpful with our party and the children we had with us. The food was well prepared and extremely tasty and the wine list was well-rounded. I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back.

Great service, great specials, and very tasty food. Had two small plates, sausage and shrimp & lamb with spinach. Each was delicious. Wife had the beet salad with goat cheese and grilled chicken. Lived it. Because we got there just before 7pm, we got the happy hour wine special , 2 for 1. I really like that each weekday they have a great wine or beer special. We'll be back.

Had dinner two nights ago with my husband at Ethos and from the moment we enter the restaurant until the moment we left the service was absolutely outstanding . Very professional , with a big smile on their faces all the people working there have one single desire to make you feel relaxed and happy what else you can ask from them . On top of this good drinks,nice Happy Hour specials and excellent food complement their service. A rare find these days in Manhattan restaurants.

group of friends from Kansas last night in NYC after a whirl wind week. They RAVED about the experience at Ethos. We permitted our server to order for us. The food just kept coming. One small plate after another. Amazing variety of tastes, textures and presentations. Absolutely delicious...each and every one. All palats were satisfied and even though we initially though
t the amount of food was excessive, we left very little to take home. Love bringing groups here. Sharing plates unites the table in so many wonderful ways. Thank you Ethos for a memorable night!

I have lived on East 35th street for a year and usually dine out downtown or on the UES. I had been here once before and wanted to eat close to home with friends on Friday night - It was the perfect spot - First off, the drinks the bartender made were LARGE, really normal, but in today's day and age, considered large. And they were delicious - I had the cucumber specialty martini which was amazing.
The restaurant is small and crowded and noisy, so if you aren't up for that, I suggest going on a week night other than a weekend.
For dinner we got several different appetizers - to be honest, my friends grilled calamari was bland and I wouldn't call it a salad, more like calamari over some bland greens. which I don't really consider salad. WE did order a bunch of different appetizers tho and they were all truly five star delicious! I started with the diver scallops over lemon risotto - I had this last time and they were still amazing - i could just get two of these for my dinner, I love it so much. My friends got the open falafel sliders and they loved them so much that they ordered a second plate. WE also got the spicy yellofin tuna appetizer which was pefect! one of the best tuna tartares I ever had. Lastly we ordered the meatballs pomodora which say they come with cheese and we had no cheese, but they were delicious. I am going to start eating dinner here more often!

I went on a weekday with a colleague and we both had the pre-fix lunch menu. Everything was delicious. The kicker though was the dessert which had semolina. Our waiter was very nice and attentive and allowed us to substitute a few items on the menu which was awesome.

Each option is better than the next. Traditional greek cuisine at its best with a twist. I will definitely be back soon!

Almost 60 degrees outside and as warm and friendly inside Ethos. The days when having those great glass side walk doors make you feel like you're dining outside no matter where you sit. Food, drinks and staff as wonderful as ever. Old friends retuning, reuniting and enjoying the revival of warm weather.

Didn't think they could add another calamari dish to the menu. The ol' fried calamari stand by. An amazing rendition. Among the best I've ever had and I've had lots over the past 30 years. But hurry, I hear it's a limited time special.

I have been to the other Ethos Greek restaurants several times and thought that I would try something new. Unfortunately only the woman at the door made some effort to be pleasant. Our actual waitress seemed like she wanted to curse at us any minute when we asked to taste the wine before making a decision. She had someone else take over before she came back with the very short and abrupt attitude for the entire night. I definitely wouldn't return. Very negative energy. The food was okay. Ethos Taverna is a lot better!

This place is so accommodating! Our group of 4 (reservation made) turned into 7. The staff didn't blink an eye. They arranged and re-arranged as our size increased. They are so friendly and nice! The food was shared (small plates all around) and so we required a lot of clean up and new set ups. No problem with this terrific, energetic staff..... AND the food and drinks were delicious. I'm going back for a SUPER Super Bowl Sunday. Can't wait!
