Delicious authentic Greek food! Enjoyed it all from appetizers to dessert! Fantastic wine
Very good food and attentive service; made sure to get us out in time for concert at nearby Carnegie Hall.
Disappointed with our meal. We started with three spreads which were delicious, but the entrees were just fair. The sea bass was well prepared but bland. The seafood pilaf was dry and chewy. The service was attentive.
Dinner with a vegan guest was made easy by a very cooperative, kind, experienced waiter. Nice, fresh, well prepared food is always beautifully presented there.
I started with the small plate meatballs. Unevenly heated, some parts hot, some cold. Then the pan seared scallops, seared into leatheriness and terribly salty. Disappointing meal.
We eat at Molyvos regularly when we are in NYC. The Greek food is excellent and the waitstaff delivers impeccable service. We ate Tapas on Thursday evening before a play. Tried a new red wine recommended by the sommelier. Delicious.
Loved Molyvos. Our server was attentive and professional, as was all of the staff. Food was all delicious.
Having dined at many restaurants throughout nyc. It’s unfortunate that this one falls way down into my forgettable list. At first glance you would think that something special waits inside. But truly looks are deceiving. The decor is decent, well lit and clean the staff are attentive and friendly. Annoying music fills the already noisy chatter of various cultures speaking loudly in their language and the clanging of kitchen workers is not far behind. So definitely not a place for romance or just a peaceful meal. Speaking of which. The food here is absolutely horrible. I ordered the fried octopus that was devoid of anything even remotely taste bud worthy as boring and worthless as can be. I also ordered the lamb chops which were so full of fat and also devoid of taste that I just wanted to throw the dam thing in the chefs face.
If this resturaunt is representive of Greek cuisine than truly it’s done Greek meals a disservice. Because either Greek food is absolutely horrible or the chef needs to be fired. It’s a shame too. Because I feel there’s potential here but not with the current menu or chef.
Very disappointed that the waiter recommended the Greet salad, insisting the chef had ripe tomatoes in February in NYC! It was the worst Greek salad I ever had. Fortunately, the main course was good.
Seating up front, especially immediate down from the entrance was chilly. Host and staff made extra efforts to accommodate moving to another table. My moussaka was excellent.
Celebrating a promotion!
On the positive side, I was able to eat one course and get out in time for an 8:00 reservation. I did have several concerns. I wanted a quiet table and even though there were booths available which I thought would be quieter they seated me at a corner noisy table. When I inquired about the other tables I was told they were reserved, but almost no one was seated there during the 1 1/2 hours I was at the restaurant.
My red snapper was a little dry and expensive.
Confusing menu as fish was listed only as whole fish.
Waiter(s) were hard to find.
Disappointing. I remember when Molyvos was a top-notch restaurant. The space looks a bit dilapidated with ripped fabric on the benches and peeling paint in the bathrooms. The food was just OK. Service was nevertheless good, although our server was very distracted.
very average food for Greek restaurant - I love greek food
we expected much more based on the rank
Just a great place for dinner....
