    wish they included coffee with the meal Restaurant week prices get higher every year and they charge $5.00 for a cp of coffee-that seems rather excessive Had to wait over 15 minutes before desert came

    Really nice fresh selection of whole fish. Overall good food and nice refresh of the old Esca space. Service was very absent and frustrating. There was a lot of staff dashing around but nobody focusing on the tables despite it not being very busy. Such a shame. Spoiled what would’ve been a good experience.

    Loved it. The new space is so warm and inviting. We shared the spreads and octopus which were fantastic. The lamb shank was perfect and my wife had the moussaka which she said was the best she ever had. Our server Despina was lovely. This is going to be our go to place.

    Seated near the kitchen, very loud plates clanging. Table was kind of shared with another couple, very loud and strange. Grape leaves were not what we are used to in Greek restaurants. Stuffed peppers was very good. Greek salad was mainly a large tomato and feta?? Beer was good. A little dissatisfied.

    The new Molyvos location is more intimate than the 7th Ave space. The food is just as great. We all had the sea bass which was outstanding. The halloumi is amazing as are the spreads. We’ll be back.

    New location and very excited to try it but it wasn't the best meal. The server was very nice but the octopus did not arrive hot- The beets in the appetizer were delicious but there was a big scoop of Skordalia which overpowered the smaller amount of beets (The plate arrived cold). The Sea Bass was good but the Risotto would have gone better with a meat dish. The wine was delicious but nothing exciting for dessert so we skipped it. There is stiff competition in the area for Greek Food (Milos & Kyma) so hopefully, this was just a bad day.

    Better Greek food in town, but service was good and new space is nice. Good Greek wine selection. But for the price I’d rather eat elsewhere for better food.

    Three of us enjoyed our dinner at the beautiful new location of Molyvos. My vegetarian entree, the stuffed red bell peppers, was good, though somewhat underseasoned (not big flavors), while my dining companions seemed to absolutely love their two fish dishes. Dips and desserts were excellent, and the service was lovely and welcoming.

    With an incredible Greek wine list unmatched by any other restaurant anywhere in the world (at least among the hundreds I've been to in over 40 countries), Molyvos would earn the "outstanding" badge just for that. But it pairs that wine list with fantastic food (notable standouts: the sardines, the yuvetsi, and the grilled fish), excellent service, and a beautiful decor: floor-to-ceiling transparent wine refrigerators filled with high-end wine bottles. Can you tell I like wine? My only note: Don't use lamb in the lahanodolmades. The classic recipe is with beef only.

    Boy am I glad that Molyvos is back! I lobve the new space and plan on going there as often as possible. Last night I had a wonderful smoked salmon dish with fried capers, followed by a delicious and juicy roast chicken. For dessert I had berries and cream. I had two glasses of tasty red Greek wine. A perfect meal!

    Spreads were good. Soup lacked depth of flavor. Octopus not particularly flavorful, but saganaki was delicious. Vegetable dalmodes good but nothing special. Food was just average but service from Bibiana was excellent. More than $$70 per person for appetizers and one drink was not really worth it. Maybe we ordered wrong, but nothing was so good I’d want to return to have it
