Food is average. Our server, Panos, was great—professional, fast and very personable. The food just kept coming out and his recall of our order was great.

Would not recommend. Ordered the seafood tower- says “whole lobster”- was only given the tail and torso no claws(??) asked waitress she said they’re not usually included… but it says “whole lobster”. Ended up being given the claws on a plate.
Clams smelt awful and my husband had to spit his out. Told the waitress, was given 10% off for inedible, smelling clams. Really disappointing meal for what was meant to be a nice birthday dinner for my husband.

Crab cake was delicious and will definitely order again. Whitings (#4) were on the bland side. Also the Greek-style baklava cheese cake was good. Nice decor and excellent service. Panos was our server.

Amazing ambience and food! We ordered the stuffed mushrooms, Phyllo purses for meze and the risotto, burgers and moussaka for entree, all of which were just amazing, especially the Risotto. The wine selection was great as well - we loved the Grenache blend (rose). Service was impeccable as well. Will definitely come back and highly recommend.

This was our third time back, and the food was excellent (as we have come to expect). The dipping sauces (hummus, spicy feta, and tzaziki) all tasted freshly made, and the seafood was very flavorful and served hot. Our server was charming.

It's a pretty place. The service is always outstanding. What pleasant servers!

The dorado was good, the lemon potatoes superb. Mezze was okay. Only the eggplant was terrific. Dessert of walnut cake very tasty and enormous (we took half home after eating a huge amount). The mixed grill for 2 could have fed all four of us.

Nice place and worth the trip from Manhattan.

We ordered three appetizers and a 2lb Lavraki with two sides, to share among three people. All very good. Highlights were the veggie chips, the fish, and the roasted potatoes.

Everything we ate was delicious and the service was above and beyond. We shared the spanakopita, and ordered the short ribs and seafood risotto for our entrees. I cannot complain about a single part of either dish. Highly recommend.

Lovely experience for a first night of indoor dining since the pandemic for me (it was too hot to eat outside!). Our server was great and we got the fish special--it was delicious and so much food for two people. Cocktails were good too!

Nice vibe of the restaurant. Wish I sat inside but there were no tables available. The service was ok however they brought out are food when we weren’t done with the appetizers. The spacing between meals needs to be improved. The food was excellent

This could have been an outstanding dinner. All the food was well done, the cocktails were delicious, the salad was fresh and clean. The fish was also prepared well in the Greek style. The problem with the meal was that we were served too quickly. Salad came with, instead of after, the appetizer. And the fish came before we were even half done with our salad. Table was too crowded and fish was not hot after waiting on the table.

Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious from the appetizers, to the meat, to the fresh fish, and the butterfly effect cocktail was a hit at our table. Rosa was absolutely lovely, welcoming, and enthusiastic about our experience at the restaurant, as was the rest of the staff. Enthusiastic would be the most accurate word to describe those who welcomed us to Amylos. We definitely plan on returning.

Nice vibe and decorations but poor food. Burger was overcooked and the patty was burned. Kebab is so dry and taste-less. Truffle fries is same as regular fries, no truffles...if you are looking for a place to have a drink, this is a good one, but just eat elsewhere, my 2 cents.

Lovely outdoor seating! Only noise was from the occasional loud car waiting for the light! Food was classic Greek served beautifully. Try the zucchini fritters! Staff was friendly and attentive.
