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.

The best authentic Greek food in the east village!
In spite of outdoor seating, the accommodations were comfortable and pleasant. The meal was up to Pylos’s regular high standards and very enjoyable. If you are tired of takeout or cooking, head over to E. 7th St. and enjoy a night out. Highly recommended and well worth it.
Pylos is highly recommended but make sure you get a table with heater! I like food to share & got suggestions from Greek waiter, so meatballs were more like sliders but flavorful, our choice, & one of the baked cheese which waiter suggested & the trigger fish which I never had before also a waiter suggestion was delicious with a Moussaka type vegetables underneath is also very good. Not expensive & cook clay pots on ceiling hence the name. The desserts were really good, the chocolate mouse & Filo dough Napoleon were delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant
Best always the best keep NYC restaurants going EAT out be cold it’s ok!!!
Best restaurant in East Village! Very good dessert too!! I love the chocolate mousse.
Best Greek food we've had in a long time!
Amazing good and even better staff! Get the haloumi and the octopus!
The waiters were very gracious and most accommodating to our every request. The food was fit for any Greek god and or goddess. My friends and I thought the four course meal was excellent.
The restaurant itself was also highly corona virus proof efficient. We four ladies dined outdoors under a heated canopy.
This was one of the best Thanksgiving
Day feasts of my life! I highly recommend this Greek restaurant and it’s authentically seasoned cuisine and wine list.
Had Thanksgiving dinner at Pylos and it was the best overall dinning experience I’ve had on the holiday. Food was absolutely delicious, social distancing observed, and very pleasant ambiance. Looking forward to going back to sample the regular Greek menu.
This is one of the best Greek restaurants in Manhattan and we need to do whatever we can to make sure it stays open. The food is superb, the staff is attentive and warm, and there is indoor and outdoor seating. I have been going there for years, but this is pandemic has made it very difficult for our smaller restaurants.
Excellent authentic Greek food with an extensive wine list and fantastic service. A must try.
Food was absolutely wonderful, every single plate put down on the table...exquisite!
Waiter was very slow with attention to our table...and there was ONLY ONE other table in the place eating dinner!
Tell him to pick up his cues.
Pylos is my favorite Greek restaurant in the city and the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion! Everything we ordered was outstanding and the service was amazing per usual! I can’t wait to go back again soon!
The food is a bit expensive but very delicate and in a decent amount. The staff gives good advices regarding the wine or the food choice.
We can vouch for the mezzes, lamb, frittata, striped bass and old monolith red wine. Hoping they work out something viable with their space for the colder months.
Everything was great
We ate outside due to covid. Food is always consistently delicious here.
We just shared a couple of dishes for dinner. It was delicious. We had the 3 dips, grape leaves, fried zucchini and eggplant stack, and artichoke heart moussaka. We both had a glass of the house wine.
great food and service. I look forwarded to returning there.
The outdoor space on 7th Street is a charm. Food and service continues to excel.
Fabulous food. Great presentation. Excellent service.
They are doing a great job inspite of the circumstances, the noise level is understandable because you are on the sidewalk with all that entails. The food however was as usual outstanding. Service was polite and impeccable, I had an elderly gentleman in a walker with me to celebrate his 88th birthday and he enjoyed himself. So all was good.
Food was excellent - always. The temporary outdoor seating for Covid Times was well done and the staff couldn’t have been lovelier or safer.
Great food, friendly service
One of the few restaurants we've been to recently that is completely phoning it in due to covid. Their food has gone downhill, the outside atmosphere is just thrown together, the waiters don't care, ..
Food was amazing as always. Got the Horiatiki, moussaka and dip trio for appetizers. Shared the lamb chops for the main and while I've found I need to err on the side of "rare" when ordering my lamb chops here, they were very tasty. Get the galatabourico for dessert, you wont regret it. Topped it all off with a crisp, reasonably priced bottle of wine from Santorini. All in all lovely experience.
Excellent as always! Beautiful outdoor for Covid! Highly recommended!
Pylos continues to be a bright spot in the city with exceptional food, service, and ambience - even during the Coronapocalypse. Easily the best Keftedes in town.
Great food, excellent service.
Great place, we tried several
appetizers and the steak special was delicious!
The three cheese appetizers was insane.
Pylos is definitely one of the best restaurants in town, offering mouth-watering greek dishes (with a twist), stellar service and a stylish yet welcoming atmosphere. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves every single time and can’t wait to try their Saturday Brunch!
Wow. That is a good start. The ambience is hip and fun. Tables are small and a little close to your neighbours but understandable. Not that large a place and super busy they need to squeeze people in. We ordered too much but that had more to do with the fact it was our first time and wanted to try as many dishes as possible. We had 2 apps and 2 main dishes. I think 1 app is enough with the 2 dishes. Amazing experience and will definitely be back when we visit NYC again.
First time at brunch and was just as great as dinner.
Great food, serene ambience, interesting Greek wine list.
Been there many times but everything was particularly wonderful. You can not eat much "cleaner" and delicious food than this.
My only comment is that although we have been coming here for many years and always reference this fact, it never seems to matter as far as a table request or a sense of familiarity. Not that they have to but most other restaurants do seem to appreciate that fact.
We will come back because the food is that good but it still is a head scratcher
Great food, generous portions, awesome atmosphere, helpful and attentive waitstaff. An excellent experience!
Food and service were both excellent. Greek salad and the moussaka were fabulous.
Pylos was a really a fantastic gastronomic experience. Very good food and excellent service.
We had an awesome dinner. Since it was Valentines Day they offered only a prefix menu. I had the artichoke moussaka that was extraordinarily delicious for appetizer and a chicken dish for entree that was equally delicious. Others had salads and shrimp appetizers. For dinner others had lamb chops and bass. Everyone loved their dinners. For dessert we all had phyllo triangles filled with custard...we all loved them. Our waiter was extremely competent and was able to help us out with our wine selection. I didn’t know much about Greek wines but the one we had was very good. Our whole night was one of the best times. We all enjoyed our food. Thank you!
