Among the ruins of ancient Greece were items such as clay pots that revealed many clues to daily Hellenic life. PYLOS (pronounced Pee-'los) - the root word that includes things of clay - celebrates these prosaic artifacts we now recognize as great art.
*Pylos Restaurant now offers outdoor dining that is covered and heated.

It was fabulous as always!
Deliscous food. Best octopus we’ve ever had. The whole bronzino and rice were both outstanding
Small restaurant with beautiful interior. I don’t recommend for a larger party or if you’re going to get a little buzzed with your dinner to celebrate a special occasion as they only have wine or beer. The food was good. The appetizers are best while the entrees are tasty but truthfully nothing memorable. Great quality of food however. It’s definitely a quiet date night spot but it’s not a lively place and the music is quiet and to be honest, a little depressing. So if a quiet, lowkey dinner is what you’re looking for this is a good place for you. If you’re looking for a fun start to an evening or to celebrate, go somewhere else.
Great food. Music was too frenetic and kind of techno loud. No way does this match the restaurant. This was a turn off.
Great food and atmosphere. There a few people walk around purring water for table. Our guy( unfortunately didkt catch his name. Glasses on with darker face / short. He was rude and ignorant . He probably was Greek or from somewhere that don’t value women at all. He was pretty disrespectful with his body language. They should NOT interact with guest at all. I am not Greek myself but first generation woman living in this country for 20 years. I know this type of ignorant man very well.
Overall atmosphere and food was great but be aware of this type of people in restaurant and report them if they act disrespectful.
We had our first Thanksgiving dinner at Pylos. The servers, taste, menu selections and ambience couldn’t have been more perfect! For $50 per person, we couldn’t believe the quantity and quality of the meal. We had butternut squash soup, between the choice of either a salad or large prawns in a tomato based cream sauce, turkey with sweet potatoes and wild rice plus our dessert of choice, phyllo Napoleon or chocolate mousse. Absolutely delicious and thoroughly satisfying. Can’t wait for next meal at Pylos!!
Have eaten at Pylos several times, most recently for Thanksgiving. The good was excellent, the prices were reasonable, and the service was good.
I highly recommend Pylos for dinner whether it a for an occasion or casual dinner with friends or family.
Probably the best Greek food I’ve ever eaten. And I love Greek food and eat it often. The octopus, the fried eggplant and zucchini, the Bronzino, and the lamb chops were all delicious, but the honey braised lamb shank was off the charts. I was impressed:)
One of my favorite places in NYC. I brought friends last night and it was my first visit since Covid. I was very happy to find the food and service as wonderful as ever.
Getting seated was more challenging than I would hope. We arrive twenty minutes earlier and asked to sit as soon as possible. Despite our table being ready we were asked to wait outside because our reservation time did not begin.
Not taking our reservation a few minuets early discourages timelines. There is a variability in when people arrive and if you will not seat them if they are a few minuets they will avoid that outcome. Pylos is incentivizing me to plan to arrive late.
I just wanted to sit with some friends to begin talking and drinking while the rest of our party arrived. Not accommodation me more promptly was disappointing.
Their food is good and wait staff is attentive. My initial interaction with the host leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I hadn’t been to the restaurant in almost 5 years and I was so excited to return! It was just as I remembered. Very clean - even all those pots on the ceiling. The food was delicious and the wine was delicious. I highly recommend for authentic Greek cuisine.
Excellent lemon soup, moussaka and poached salmon dishes.
Very good food with generous portions. Excellent, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful service. Available outside dining with heaters for the colder weather. Overall, a very good restaurant. Go and enjoy.
Great experience overall! Would go again
Amazing !! Will be back
Excellent. Authentic Greek cuisine and exceptional service. everything was exquisite. Thank you :)
The food was mediocre and menu quite limited. Tables are too small for a proper dinner of two.
The food was spectacular as always 😄
Excellent Greek food! And all time favorite restaurant in NYC
What?! There for over 15 years and I had never been?! Well that was a mistake! As a Greek I can attest to this restaurant's authentic and delicious food, terrific decor, and amazing wine list. I do wish they had a full liquor license to enjoy a nice Greek inspired cocktail. We will be back.
Delicious food, excellent service. We sat outside on the sidewalk (not the shed, which was a little warm with the heaters on during an unseasonably balmy November night) and it was relatively quiet. Food came quickly and everything was delicious. We ordered the Greek salad, stuffed chicken, and pistachio fish. Had leftovers, because it was a lot of food.
Wish I would’ve shot the Saganaki. Best i ever had and service was great!
Authentic and comforting Greek flavors in a lovely setting.
My foodie family was in town - blown away by the food at Pylos! Want to come back and do it again! The best!
Food was excellent. Waiter was very attentive. The wine we ordered seemed a bit off but waiter was quick to replace it with a different wine to ensure that we were happy.
The service was top notch from reception, service, busser’s & runners. Food was amazing as usual-the zucchini chips were crisp & delicious with that thick & creamy tzatziki-not your typical run of mill -had the lamb chops & moussaka which were done to a turn-happy to be back again since the pandemic
Reunión con amigos
Came here for a birthday. The atmosphere was lovely, food was amazing, and service was great! Highly recommend for a date night or small group dinners.
El lugar es precioso. Impecable.
El servicio estupendo.
La comida extraordinaria.
Regresaré cada vez que vuelva a NY.
Lovely staff that were very attentive. The Stuffed chicken and the lamb shank were fantastic. Apps were lovely aswell
We went early so it was still quiet so not sure what it would be like later on.
A new mushroom potato side dish was served with the chicken-the server asked how it was as they were just starting to serve it. It could have used more flavor-maybe more herbs or cream-it was a bit bland. Should have told him that.
The rest of the meal was fabulous!!!! Would go back for sure. Shared a salad, app and chicken with my friend and it was plenty for us. As she said we were comfortably full. Not huge variety but prepared so differently that it was a change from the usual chicken, beef, salmon....
Pylos never disappoints! No wonder so many regulars keep coming back! The Greek salad, tarama and thinly sliced eggplant/zuchini appetizers are no-miss, as are the delicious main courses, moussaka and lamb chops, but don't pass up the grilled fish. And the side of spinach was stellar.
The food continues to be delicious - the resultant is beautiful but we are outside which is fine but of course not as charming as the interior. They did have heat though.
Excellent service and delicious food - My husband had the steak and I had the chicken!
We had exceptional service, at an outdoor table. The food was excellent.
The greek salad was amazing so refreshing. We got the whole fish and it had great flavor. Very solid place for greek food and the staff was very nice
The food was ok, we expected better than ‘home style.’ It was fine, not excellent. Had branzino and lamb shank. A few appetizers. Service also average. We noted it was a special occasion- it wasn’t mentioned.
Fabulous food ,service, atmosphere.
Consistantly great all across the board. Meal was delicious and great value - thanks!!
