We have been going to Molyvos for more than 15 years and it is consistently excellent.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant, food was very good, staff was exceptional.
Molyvos continues to be hands down the best Greek restaurant in NYC. It never disappoints. From the food, service, to the sommelier who recommended the most delicious Greek wine, we loved everything. My husband and I have been frequenting Molyvos since they first opened in 1997 when we lived in the city. Any opportunity we get, especially when we’re seeing a Broadway show we try to eat here. It manages to get better and better. Thank you!
The ambiance at Molyvos is splendid: quiet enough for adult conversation, beautiful calm pale green walls and mirrors, no loud music. We were excited to try the moussaka, which was rather burnt this time, alas. We thought the scallops overpriced at $36, which is about $9 per scallop, and so avoided them. The server's wine suggestions were helpful and I wish we had saved room for dessert.
We were seated at 6:00 p.m. and chose the Prixe Fixe dinner course. The service had a very good flow and we had plenty of time to be on time for 8:00 p.m. show (7-8 blocks away). The appetizers were different from the menu on the website. Both Romaine Salad and Lentil Soup were good. The salmon entrée was very plain, and needed more seasoning. On the other hand, the Seafood Pilaf was very salty. The server's recommendation for a glass of white wine was a perfect match to both seafood entrees. Two desserts; Galaktoboureko and Yogurt & Macaroons were both beautifully plated, and macaroons were so light and melted in our mouth! One regret is that tables for 2 in the front section are very tightly spaced, and it was a little uncomfortable. But we started carrying nice conversation with a couple next to us, and it made our dining experience even more enjoyable. This may be the real way of Greek Dining!
It was very nice
Great food. Love this place.
A favorite for relaxed dining with careful service, very good food. It’s usually our first stop in trips to NYC
Would not visit this restaurant again, over priced poor quality food, could tell from the waitresses attitude that she didn't want to be serving us, not a pleasant experience
Great food conveniently located near upper theater district.
Pretheater dinner. Was delicious, timely and a great way to start the evening. Will be back again soon!
Food was great. Location is very convenient. The service was very good, staff very accommodating.
Great food and decent service. Ordered a steak on New Years Eve and it was pleasantly surprising. Also, the desserts were great.
A great New Year's Eve dinner - Thank You to our Host "Dora" Wanda LOL
Food and service “over the top”
Great all around dining experience!
Food was fabulous. Loved the lamb shank and scallop dishes. Appetizers like Haloumi cheese were also terrific. Highly recommend this restaurant for great Greek food.
The grilled whole Lavraki and Tsipoura were both very good. The side order of Brussels sprouts was too large but side of asparagus was just right. Service was excellent!
Honestly, would not recommend to a friend. Expensive, bad service, and extremely okay food. Go... elsewhere.
We visited before theatre. The ambiance was very NYC and the service efficient. Our food was middle-of-the-line Greek, but the experience was lovely.
Definitelyl The Grilled Octopus Salad at lunch is fabulous. Please offer it at dinner too.
My favorite Greek restaurant in NYC. Overall a top choice
Everything was wonderful except the chocolate mousse! Fortunately I’d ordered the baklava sundae which was out of this world and generous enough to share.
The food is amazing. My Greek friend says it's the best greek food in NYC.
Great new. Quiet. Great for talking. A little over priced for what you get.
Always enjoy our experience at Molyvos‼️ The food is delicious and fresh‼️Service always great‼️ A fav‼️♥️
Our waiter was horrible and uninterested! And the food was mediocre. We have been coming every year at same time and won’t be back!
Loved the Lamb shank. Tender and melted in your mouth. Also the grilled octopus is not to be missed.
Son got engaged- impromptu celebration
Portions of grilled fish were small , risotto underneath was cold. Wine was expensive for what it was. Avra Madison is slightly more expensive but portions sizes are better and service top notch. Waiter should communicate choices or highlights better.
Molyvos has been a staple for me for years; consistently good and a great atmosphere for dining with friends, business associates, family, etc. I will say that it doesn't seem as if the menu has changed significantly (if at all) but not sure that it has to either. I always enjoy this restaurant.
What a discovery! I was looking for a “good” place to eat in this area and saw the write up about Molyvos on line. Sounded terrific, and was!!
Molyvos never disappoints. Excellent Greek food for any occasion. Prixe fixe lunch is great option for business meal. Great choices & value.
Food was fabulous and the staff efficient and friendly. Depending on where you sit, it can be noisy. We had a good table so lucked out. It is expensive, but for special celebrations it’s wonderfully festive without being really fussy or uppity.
Fish and octopus was wonderful.
A reliably excellent Greek restaurant, after a long flight from the west coast or a rainy day in New York. The service is very good. The appetizers are to die for, the wine list is comprehensive, as are the fresh fish, classic Greek dishes, and the lamb chops are excellent. I highly recommend this wonderful family (one of several) owned place. It is a very big restaurant, and it is very noisy. But again, the food and servers are worth it.
Always an excellent meal! My favorite is lamb yuvetsi; I hadn't ordered this in a while but decided to get it this time, and it was excellent. Dessert was the Molyvos Sundae, another can't-miss. Prices (with drinks) are high so be ready, but the quality of the meal was worth it.
Have been there many times with my husband for dinner before theatre. Great location and it never disappoints. Friendly and accommodating and the food is delicious!
We decided to do a variety of small plates and ask the sommelier his thoughts regarding the wine. He was extremely helpful.
Our favorite Greek restaurant! The food and service are always exemplar. Drinks, appetizers, and main courses are amazingly delicious.
Excellent food and service.
