The restaurant is pretty & most of the food was good.
The service however was HORRIBLE. We waited 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive, and one was wrong.
After another 15 minutes we flagged down a member of the waitstaff & she took our food orders.
A side dish we had ordered never came. When I asked for it, because I wanted to eat it with my entree, I was told it would be right there. Several minutes later it came, cold and undercooked.
We were never asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu or if we wanted another drink.
I saw people at several other tables that were also trying to get someone's attention so they could order.
I would not recommend this restaurant & will never go back. There are a lot of better Greek restaurants in Astoria.

The outdoor seating area was nice although there was a bit of street noise (which can't be avoided). The food was excellent and the service was great.

I was charged $8 for carbonated tap water as bottle of sparkling water, that is a rip-off.
I order whole fish what happen to head and belly parts. Also tables and chair outside were not leveled, which made seating uncomfortable. Overall was not good experience.

Our waiter, Paños, was very pleasant.
The food was fine, the ambiance was fine also. Service was a little slow however. I waited and waited for our bill to be picked up at the end of the meal. Finally, I went up to the front desk and asked if I could pay the bill there.

This was our second visit to Amylos and both have been great. Upscale, not stuffy, great food and service. More traditional Greek than one might expect, but the appetizers, dips and mains(especially lamb) were spot on. Highly recommended for family or friends gatherings.

FANTASTIC, authentic Greek restaurant in Astoria! From cocktails, through meze, and on to mains and dessert, we were wow'd by everything we ate and drank at Amylos! And if you're new to Greek dining, the enthusiastically friendly staff will be happy to help you make some wonderful choices. We started with the charred octopus on a bed of fava puree, and it was the best we've ever had. We also did a sampling of spreads, all of which were delicious. My partner chose the lamb shank in dark ale, and I had the slow roasted lamb with traditional lemon potatoes. Both were delicious-- and such large portions that we couldn't avoid taking home leftovers. All served in an upscale, modern setting. We will definitely be back!!

I would recommend the lamb shank and the lamb chops. The spreads are fresh and the pita served with it is very good. Save the complimentary pita from the breadbasket for maximum enjoyment of the spreads.

A great find. Our reservation was honored within 5 minutes. The wait staff was very attentive . Served our drinks quickly and took our orders.
Our appetizers were excellent. The Fish Tacos were great, as were the vegetable chips. Our main courses were all fish (Bronzino and Dorado). Both were excellent.
We will be back.

The only downside of the evening is the parking. Allow for a good 10-15 minutes of trying to find a spot in a busy neighborhood

The food was delicious and the ambiance was great. Would definitely recommend for a date or small group. The only negative was I ordered the scallops, and while they were delicious, $34 for literally 4 scallops with not a single other thing on the plate besides a garnish is pretty crazy.

This is by far the BEST Greek restaurant in Queens!! From start to finish, you are greeted with a warm welcome and smile from all staff members. The ambiance is beautiful, romantic, and modern with a twist of Greek vintage. Every dish on the menu is delectable and made to look like a work of art. I ordered scallops and I have never tasted more tender and juicy scallops in my life! I have also celebrated my birthday here and I recently attended their Live Greek Night! The band sounded amazing and the vibe was so lively while everyone was dining! Trust me. This restaurant is the gem of Astoria and you must visit!

A good attempt to take Greek food upscale... not always successful, but decent. They take liberty with names of Greek foods, like kontosouvli, and change them at will. Service was good, no cmplaints there. Prices were on the high side for what was delivered.

I had such a great time! This is my third time coming here and the food was excellent and so was the service. Everyone was so accommodating and made my birthday special. My favorite dish was the roasted chicken with the three dips! I also recommend either the greek red wine or the flavored margaritas!

A beautiful and excellent addition to the Mediterranean restaurants in the Astoria area. I almost hate to write a good review as this will soon become a go-to place for many and I will no longer be able to get in. Worth the travel from Great Neck. But wish the pita plaka had a bit more meat, rather than a plate of potatoes. But excellent food and fabulous service!

The food was incredible. That being said our waiter more or less ignored us for the entire night. There was confusion over who was taking what sections of tables initially but after 20 min of waiting for someone to take our drink order I thought that had been sorted out. Unfortunately we continued to be forgotten. Our appetizers came out before our beverages, we had questions about the entrees the waiter said he would be right back to answer the questions and never returned. Not once were we asked if everything was ok, not once were we asked if we wanted another drink. After we finished eating the busboys cleared our plates then we were left again. Finally after 25 min of sitting at a table with no food I had to ask the hostess if we could get our check. Finally a manager came over and apologized. The manager was very kind and apologetic and even offered dessert or drinks but after 2.5 hours of dining we needed to get home. I made sure to tell him that the bus boys and food runners were incredible and the food was delicious. I understand mistakes happen but we were not the only table with issues. Also—the dinner rush was more than over. It’s a shame because the ambiance, food and vibe of the restaurant are outstanding but the service needs some serious help.
