Had a fantastic time at Molyvos tonight! It was our first "date night" in a very long time and it was perfect. The food was delicious from the appetizer right up to dessert. Love all the dips they offer, especially the taramasalata and the roasted red pepper with feta. Yum!
My hubby had the seafood pilaf - delicious! I had the lamb shank. So tender and flavorful! I am salivating just thinking about it!
The wine director, Kamal Kouiri recommended a beautiful wine that really complimented our meals. He is a wine expert, so we were in capable hands!
Of course, no meal is complete without desert! We shared a baklava and at the suggestion of our fabulous server, Despina (who is hilarious btw!), we tried the chocolate mousse cake. To die for!!!
The entire evening was a dream thanks to the wonderful staff and the heavenly food! We will definitely be back!
Amazing meal! I haven’t been here since last year and was thrilled to see Molyvos has kept food quality and great service! My mousaka was to die for and my friend’s lavraki fish was fresh and grilled to perfection! The Greek inspired cocktails (Cretan mule, Hydra breeze) were delicious! Service was attentive but not intrusive. All around a wonderful experience! Molyvos never disappoints. Looking forward to coming many times!
Always reliable fir good salad and seafood
Outstanding dining experience, the food was extremely delicious especially lamb yuvetsi!!
The service was great and helpful!!
Definitely will be back
Still our go to Greek. Love the Octopus, Greek Salad, tarama, tzatziki, Mitilini meatballs, the lamb chops and of course, the moussaka. The 2012 Diaporos Xinomavro from Kir-Yianni was amazing.
Awesome Classic Greek food, the lamb chops, the grilled octopus and the super fresh Greek country salad were delicious, large Greek wine list, polite and welcoming service.
The food was extremely disappointing. Each course was mediocre at best. The restaurant was mostly empty on Saturday night at 7:00 - a signal that it is dying.
Great food, outstanding value, service was an issue at times.
Delicious soup and dessert. Courteous staff and lovely environment.
The food was mediocre, service was poor. And I usually like this restaurant.
We have been doing to Molyvos since 1997. It never disapoints!
We selected from the lunch special menu, which had delicious choices.
Disappointed- food is nothing that I can’t make at home. Not Greek. Restaurant week menu is a disappointment.
This place have changed. Arrive was good.
Wonderful Greek & Mediterranean menu. Space is large for NYC--you never hear conversations from other tables
We have always loved dining at Molyvos
The food is always excellent and the service is elegant:) thank you !
Makes every meal a celebration.
Tourist trap, bad food not really a Greek restaurant. Sounds like one.
the appetizer and dessert was especially good
The main course orsa was a bit soggy
Great food and ambience
No extra care to customer who came back...not a thing
Can't imagine that they survive
Delicious food but waiter not very attentive. Actually waited 25 minutes trying to order dessert and finally just asked someone else fir the check and had ice cream at home. Will be back tho — food just fine
First time here since the pandemic. Menu looks smaller but the food still has great taste to it.
Nice air conditioning and martinis with Greek mezze. Perfect summer early dining.
Food was overly heavy and small plates for the price
The restaurant is beautiful, the food was fantastic and the service was wonderful.
As always - good food and good service. Delicious spreads!
Wonderful pre Steven Cobert Show experience! So convenient and excellent service and food!
Very nice menu with a reasonable prix fixe ($42). Loved the ravani dessert - bright citrus/orange flavors. Staff was very attentive.
Fantastic! Delicious food, incredible service, and a great non-rushed, pleasant meal. Highly recommend.
Excellent food, as always, and the noise level was nice and low. My only complaint was that we didn't get the other bread that you used to serve.
All food was very delicious from appetizers to entrees to dessert.
Still one of my NYC favorites. The tomato salad is amazing, great wine list too. Unfortunately my F-A-V octopus appetizer was chewy this time. I order this dish every time I dine at Molyvos, but left a little disappointed on this visit.
Still, the restaurant is worth a visit for some of the best Greek food in NYC.
Fantastic meal: the server couldn't have been nicer and more accomodating. The wine list is amazing and we tried a wine from Crete that was delicious. The grilled branzino was superb
We had a lovely time. Highly recommend when there are lower numbers of people.
Thank yo the great team there
We went for my boyfriend’s birthday and the food was amazing and so was the staff!
Wonderful experience on a very hot evening! Unfortunately they were out of the fish of the day and Scallops which were the 2 items I was pondering. Now I have to go back!
Molyvos has kept up its high standards of food and service. I recommend it for every occasion.
Believe that we were the only customers at 5:30. The Hostess was also our primary wait staff and took our order. She answered all of our questions and made several suggestions that were spot on. Food was perfect temperature and portions were ample. Wine selection was sufficient. Calamari was excellent, as was our two main entrees. Could not be happier with the overall presentation.
A little slow the night we were there but the service was fast and friendly and the food was very good.
