ambiance was awesome. quiet yet not stuffy and the young lady greeting you knew me by name without ever meeting me. the staff was very versed on what to try both in wines and fish. food was excellent and i have to say the price was so reasonable for what you get. definitely will be going back to this place! kudos!

Saturday Pre-show dinner for 3.. promptly seated upon arrival. The restaurant was not too busy and we got a nice corner table away from the bar and front door. Complimentary olives & bread arrived shortly after seating. Kostas gave us good service and was helpful to allow us plenty of time to order, enjoy our dinner and leave on time for our concert. Appetizers and entrees were very good, and all were moderately priced for NYC. Cocktails + wine + apps + entrees + tip = $240

I cannot recommend this restaurant. The food was not very good. The hot appetizer arrived cold in the middle. The main course was only fair, not all that well flavored, and not as hot as I would have preferred. My companion's lamb was tough and not very well seasoned. I would not return.

I remember eating here many years ago and remember that it was good. What a difference this time. The octopus was too soft and tasteless, the Greek salad was terrible, because the tomatoes were mushy and watery. The spinach philo came cold, I sent it back . When it came back it was a better choice of the three, at least it had taste.
We didn't want to try anything else, as we were going to the theatre and didn't have enough time. We also didn't trust that other choices would be any better. The waiter was unavailable when needed , even though the restaurant was mostly empty. But he did come up few times to find out how the food was , but mostly was interested in us ordering more wine and food. When I told him about the octopus , he just shrugged and didn't offer to replace it with anything else. The room was very cozy and the decor was tasteful.. I was wondering why the place was empty ... Now I know why, mediocre food and mediocre service. Waste of money. Would not come back.

I was at ammos last night, I couldn’t tell you how happy I am about this experience!!! The food was spotless, we had the Chilean sea bass and the Laramie as a main course they were phenomenal, the octopus and zucchini fitters appetizers were very good as well. The wine recommendation by the sommelier-was perfect for what we had to eat.
This restaurant definitely was up to my expectations and I will definitely be back.

The food was ok, however the portions were very small. The special menu (New Year's Celebration) stated that they were going to give complementary shots throughout the night, none were given. The service was great, I still believe gratuity should be given at the discretion of the patron not something automatically added to your bill. Thus taking away gratuity because now it's obligatory and no longer the patron being gratuitous. $500 for dinner for 2 was a bit extravagant. It was New Year's eve but it still seemed a bit overpriced. A very expensive learning experience. I wouldn't recommend anyone to this place as the food was ok, not great.

This is an excellent restaurant! Food was terrific! I had a whole grilled Red Snapper that was delicious, we had two bottles of terrific Greek white wine recommended by the captain. Waitstaff was professional and friendly. And if you choose to go into Manhattan by train to Grand Central it is across the street.

The restaurant is very cozy, warm and inviting. We absolutely love the ambiance and the decor is very nicely done, lighting is perfect and really liked that they have round tables. We felt the restaurant had a few too many tables sandwiched together and it did feel rather tight. The bar area is small but very warm as well, a romantic spot. For appetizers we ordered vegetable chips with Tzatziki sauce which was very good and grilled Kalamari. The Kalamari was a bit chewy and a little fishy tasting. We each had a excellent cocktail, the Ginger Margarita and the sweet and spicy margarita. Very tasty and enjoyable. For dinner, the Solomos, salmon dish was very good, fresh and perfectly done. The other dish was the Katsikisia Salad with chicken added. Both dishes were very fresh, perfectly done and we thoroughly enjoyed them. We did not have dessert as we were so full from everything else we ate. We would definitely recommend.

Food was great. What bothered both my husband and myself was that the restaurant was pretty much empty, but they had all diners sitting next to each other. The two of us were sat right next to a big family. They were not loud, but the tables were very close to each other. We were there for a pre-Christmas dinner date. Since there were many open tables, seating consideration would have been appreciated.
