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.

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!!
Excelente lugar, la cómoda es deliciosa así como el servicio.
I had brunch at Pylos for the first time. I usually come for dinner. The menu selection was great. I would recommend highly.
Amazing dinner, delicious food and super attentive service! What else to say?!
I just wasn't impressed with the food.. I was very disappointed especially since the reviews are so good.
Grilled octopus was on the salty side which made the Greek salad taste under seasoned
Outstanding service and wine
The food will seriously blow your mind. Great food, great ambiance, and great staff. Everything Greek and super authentic! Do yourself a favor and order the artichoke moussaka, the lamb chops and the Napoleon. Truly amazing
I had a great dinner there with a friend . The food is consistently homemade , fresh and presented well over the years I've been here several times . It's very clean and beautiful inside .
Great find. The food and service was outstanding and the restaurant is very charming.
Service is very good
It had been 7 years since I last went to Pylos. I was happy to find that the ambience, service and food were still as great as I remembered. Will be back and it won't take that long.
Great service and atmosphere. Food was delicious!
I stopped in at Pylos for an early dinner, and had the most amazing dining experience. The complimentary lentil dip with pita bread was just fantastic. The arugula salad with pears and pistachios was fresh and delicious. The orzo pasta with shrimp and scallops was simply out of this world. And the pastry dessert with custard and honey was sublime. My server Arada was absolutely wonderful - so friendly, knowledgeable and gracious. She made certain that my experience was perfect. She was such a pro - I was shocked to learn that it was her first night! I look forward to returning to Pylos to see Arada, and to enjoy another magical meal.
Very nice interior vibe and delish food. Great menu options and greek wines. Highly recommend.
A great experience overall- seated quickly, attentive server, really wonderful food, and quiet enough for us to have a conversation.
Oh- and unlike other restaurants in this neighborhood, Pylos’ tables are the correct size, they allowed for our plates, glasses and such to rest without a worry that they were going to drop onto the floor (IMHO, other restaurants nearby have dining tables that are too small).
The server was extremely polite which is rare nowadays. The food was 10/10. The interor design was also really cool. Definitely recommend!
Food was excellent and ambiance was really nice and calm. I know the restaurant can get loud but we ate at an odd hour and it was very calm. The procedures to separate the seating for social distancing were good--felt very safe.
Can’t say enough great things! Everything we tried was fresh super flavorful and gorgeously prepared. Service was informative, attentive and spot on with recommendations. Perfect experience!
The outdoor setup isn't great - there were rats and the wooden structure smelled terrible. But the food and staff are amazing.
Best Greek food around. Always an outstanding dinner.
I have been dining her on occasion for over 20 years. Pylos is one of my favorite restaurants. Well worth the extra.
The service and ambiance was amazing. The appetizers were great as well. Although fresh, the entrees ( lamb chops, and salmon) were underwhelming in flavor. At the price point I expected to have a well seasoned lamb chop and it was only salted and grilled. In my past experiences Greek lamb chops are seasoned with: oregano, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, salt, and olive oil. The accompanying sides were ok but did not seem cohesive to the dish. The desserts were OK as well.
I would return for appetizers and a bottle of wine but not dinner!
Best restaurant in NYC
The ambiance, wine, food and Service was like no other. Our waiter was very easy going and helpful. Can’t wait to go again!!!!
Food was delicious. Waiter was knowledgeable and gracious.
The food is top notch, octopus was a little chewy, but everything else was amazing
All food that we ordered was great! Branzini was moist and flavorful, octopus was tender and nicely grilled, flavor of sauces were sharp and tasty, and salad was nicely balanced. Server chose the perfect wine for us, and his service was outstanding!
Excellent service. The Gigantes appetizer was particularly terrific. The beet and feta ally was a little salty for my taste but all the food was very good.
The place looks great with space between the tables. Everything was excellent - especially loved the appetizer meatballs and the baby baby chops.
Great food, great service!
The ambience is relaxing and soothing. We arrived at 6:00 there was only one child who left shortly thereafter.As the evening progressed, the noise level went up to moderate.
Spectacular food! Excellent Dolmades and FRied Zucchini and Eggplant. The moussaka
is individually prepared and presented and the Lamb Shank one of the best ever. We asked for a wine recommendation and were delighted with the result.
Thoughtful menu, thoughtfully prepared. Gracious service, never hovering, always enough water.
Whenever we bring guests, they always leave happy.
Pylos never disappoints - the food is selected and presented very well and pleasingly. I have never been disappointed with my dining experience.
Impeccable service, delicious food, great atmosphere. My new favorite go to Greek Restaurant in the city!
