A Livanos' family creation, Molyvos is the closest you can get to Greece in New York City. Critics agree that Molyvos serves perhaps the finest example of Greek cuisine in New York, and beyond. People from around the world have discovered that Molyvos serves the true foods and wines of Greece, along with a large dose of the country’s warm and lively spirit. Molyvos’ menu is built upon the home-style cooking of Greece using authentic recipes, classical cooking techniques and superior ingredients. The wine list, under the keen direction of Kamal Kouiri, is unique for its depth and breadth of excellent Greek labels and small producers from the Mediterranean whose wine deserves to be enjoyed. Molyvos also boasts a carefully selected Pre and Post-theatre menu that perfectly accompanies an evening of entertainment.

We had the Black Sea Bass which was delicious Our waiter picked a Greek wine to go with it which complemented the dish. Highly recommend going to Molyvos.

Food is quite good and the atmosphere is nice, but service on the evening we dined was inattentive and not friendly or enthusiastic. We had to fight to get staff attention at several points throughout the meal.

Only two blocks from Carnegie Hall this is excellent for pre- and/or post- performance dining. It is my favorite for just that.

I have loved the Octopus salad since 2001 when I first went there. It has never left the menu and remains as fantastic as it always was.
