This was not a bad experience by any means. But felt compelled to write about certain things due to the price point. First, the food overall was just okay. The appetizer dips were excellent but everything else after that did not meet our expectations. Also, the food came out very fast. Our appetizers came out before my friend had gotten her first glass of wine and then the entrees came out well before we had finished our appetizers so we had a full table with barely any room to put our silverware, drinks etc. Worth mentioning that our waitress was very nice as well. My friend and I decided this would be more of a pregame place we go to for a drink and an app before going somewhere else for an actual dinner.

Had the red blend wine made in Greece, delicious! For apps we did the Ouzo mussels tasted great but the mussels were pretty over cooked and the charred octopus which was melt in your mouth tender, charred perfectly and was my favorite thing I had. For entrees we had the halibut, again over cooked the sauce was really good though. We did the scallops which were cooked well but I wasn’t a fan of the butternut squash purée, too sweet. Finally we did the seafood risotto which was delicious and the Mac and cheese on the side which was creamy and tangy!

Food and service was excellent. The pita was grilled with olive oil and herbs. From first taste I was hooked. Waitress was very helpful in describing and explaining both food and wine.

The food was excellent.... there were a few mishaps with service in that they brought the wrong entree to our table and forgot our second wine order, it overall it was great.

Great restaurant. Nice ambiance and good food. They must be understaffed though, it took more than 20 minutes to get a drink. And another 15 minutes for our appetizers. So for the first 30 minutes, we just had water...the waiter was gracious enough to apologize though.

I love Amylos and visited this restaurant many times before but this was the first pandemic visit and it was an unfortunate one. The mussels I ordered where not fresh and I got really sick after eating them. My friend ordered gyro and he wasn’t happy with the quality of his food as well. The service and ambiance is lovely and I am heartbroken that my favorite place did disappoint me.. not sure if I give them another try but all the other times I was there the food was always outstanding.. so maybe I waa just got unlucky with a bad mussels 😩

We love this restaurant and have been several times. So happy they are open again and did not suffer a permanent closing. Small portions (four small bites of meat and no feta) in their pita. And a lamb burger at $22 when most other Greek establishments charge somewhat less. They have a beautiful heated area for outdoor dining.

It was disappointing to make a lunch reservation and then be presented the dinner menu. The hostess said they were the same but the pricing clearly was not.

It was the second time we dined in the Amylos. Everything was good- food, service and friendliness of staff. I believe it's the best Greek restaurant in Queens. Definitely recommend.

Tonight was the first night back with indoor dining so I made a reservation to have dinner and catch up with some friends. Everything was beyond our expectations. SO GOOD. The food was incredible (highlights were calamari app, seafood risotto entree, and lamb entree). Our server was the sweetest person ever. Overall this was a great experience. They were definitely taking COVID precautions (everyone was wearing a mask, temperature checks, etc.), but it was just nice to feel “normal” for a few hours.

I recently enjoyed a lovely evening at Amylos. My friend and I sat in their cozy outdoor covered patio & they sat us right next to a heat lamp so we were very comfortable even on a chilly night. The service really stood out to me, we were very well taken care of. and the food was so good, very fresh and authentic tasting meal plus delicious cocktails. The staff provided hand sanitizer & the tables were appropriately spaced out within the patio. Overall we had a fabulous time and I would definitely go back!

We waited a while just to get some sparkling water. Then the waitress kept pushing alcohol on us when we don’t drink. The food was mediocre. The prawns were very chewy. Towards the end the busboy dropped the smelliest sauce all over my brother, my boyfriends new shoes and my pants! The waitress comes with the smallest shots when we don’t drink for the 7th time!! We asked for a manager that only gave us 15% off which wasn’t even double the tax. So my bf shoes are ruined and we left smelling like fish and onions. Horrible service, horrible food and horrible recovery!! Working in F&B for 18 years this was beyond a disappointment. Never ever again!

Went on a chilly Saturday (1/9/2021) for a birthday lunch; however, did not notice based on how well the outdoor dining space was heated. Great ambiance overall and only a three-block walk from the Broadway station on (N)/(W) train. Excellent portion sizes and definitely plan on going back.
