PYLOS honors the breadth of traditional Greek cuisine by bringing fresh, wholesome cooking from all regions of Greece to an elegant, contemporary and comfortable setting in the East Village.

Our Name

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.

    great food, i was only disappointed that i reserved in advance and requested a corner table in the back, and i was not able to get it. I made sure was special occasion...but i guess they did not read the comments or did not care.

    Consistently excellent food. Only reason it's not 5 stars is b/c the restaurant only has Greek wines and won't let you bring your own bottle for a corkage fee. Greek wines are ok, just not my favorite, though it is fun to try something new.

    Three old friends (all foodies) got together after a break of two years. All vegetarians, but we thoroughly enjoyed the food we ordered. Table spacing was excellent with no sense of being too crowded. Their desserts were also quite exceptional.

    Pylos has delicious food and in years past, created a very chic intimate vibe. I truly understand that every restaurant in NYC has taken a hit these last two years but most now have more seating capacity than ever before--at the expense of ambience, unfortunately. I requested the corner seat and we weren't seated there yet it remained empty for the next hour and a half. Sitting there would have softened the din of the room. We probably won't go back anytime soon or use opentable but the Moussaka was delcious.

    The food and service is always fabulous. We have never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh and prepared exquisitely. The service is impeccable. The decor and ambience lovely. We live uptown, but always come downtown to dine at one of our favorite places to eat. Highly recommend- you won’t be disappointed.

    Great cuisine with lovely interior decor. The wine pours were heavy, and we were grateful - get by the glass and not bottle. The service needed a bit of prodding, but we’re really nitpicking on that one. Overall, highly recommend for a friend get-together, nice date night, special event, or any occasion in between.

    The food here is great. Also the atmosphere is lovely. My only complaint is that we were hit with a 3% charge for using a credit card. In all of my dining out experiences, I have never seen that before. They didn't even warn us first. Otherwise I would have come prepared with cash.
