    We enjoyed our meal and definitely plan on returning. If the roasted veggies had been better, especially the asparagus, we would have given it a solid 5.

    Lovely restaurant. I would say the food is solid. Very traditional and well executed well. The Lamb chops fell short for me. I’m also surprised how small the salads are. We only ordered two for a group of five people and the portion size is really one person. But everything else was delicious and the wine list was great.

    This is a regular pre theater stop for us. The staff is always welcoming and friendly. The food is delicious. We had the eggplant spread, spanakopita, grilled sea bass and saved room for the amazing Molyvos special ice cream sundae. The wine and cocktails are great too.

    I ALWAYS love dining at Molyvos! The staff, ambience and food are unbeatable. Dinners at Molyvos always flow very smoothly. I had a delicious heirloom tomato salad followed by scallops then the tasty yougurt dessert. My only reservation is that the scallops seemed small and a bit dry, perhaps that's something that is seasonal.

    First time at Molyvos for brunch. My new favorite brunch place. Great food, warm hospitality, great ambience, low noise level perfect for conversation, not difficult to get a reservation (for now). A rare combination in NYC, much less near the theater district.

    Great atmosphere, service was spot on and good delicious. The only problem is that the tables are very close together . It wouldn’t stop me going back but would ask for a table with a bit more space around it . Menu was very well Explained as were the drinks . They are very aware of timings if you are going to the theatre .

    The late-night prix fixe wine pairing menu must be one of the best deals in the area, if not in the city. It's a great opportunity to try a variety of Greek wines alongside an excellent three-course meal at an hour when the restaurant is tranquil. Best of all was the service, which was consistent with our first, pre-theater experience here a couple of months ago. Our friendly, welcoming server was exceptional, making spot-on wine recommendations based on our food selection and personal preferences. Everything we ate was of the highest quality and beautifully presented. The only hiccup was when our server signed off for the evening. Her replacement never returned to our table. Otherwise, a delightful experience.

    Molyvos consistently offers good, fresh food, friendly, quick service and a lovely, relaxing environment. Our group was there for lunch pre-theatre, and were pleasantly surprised by the prix-fixe lunch offering, which was a great deal for the perfect amount of food, and because we let our server know we were attending a show, we were able to have lunch in a timely way, without feeling rushed, and still make our curtain with no difficulty.

    The Alexandria breakfast was plentiful and tasty, special sausage and a chunk of feta on tomato slices. Moussaka was good but for me it had too much meat and not enough vegetables layers.

    The food was excellent. We were a little surprised to see a charge for $9 per bottle of still water - and two bottles since without asking they produced a second one for our table. If asked, we would have opted for tap water at presumably no charge. Also, I ordered coffee but it was never delivered (and was not on the bill, thankfully). I thought the service could have been a little friendlier as well.

    Went for restaurant week menu Menu on line was different from the menu at the restaurant but the waiter was nice enough to give us the dessert item that was listed on line for the restaurant week dinner menu. Service was good but we were seated at the entrance to the kitchen and there was a direct view (and many smells) of the kitchen. A little strange but the food was good, service was ok too!

    We had a lovely Wednesday night dinner here. The food was delicious and it was a very pleasant atmosphere conducive to real conversation. The fact that we were accidentally there during a restaurant week also made it surprisingly economical. Service was gracious and kind, and they handled a celiac diner's gluten-free dining needs beautifully. Our waitress was genuinely helpful and enthusiastic. Much of the menu is naturally GF.
