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.

I booked with Amylos based on the Eater article "where to eat in Queens with outdoor heated dining." Was super glad we made this choice. Their set-up is safe (socially distanced outdoor tables) with comfortable chairs and overhead heaters, plus the lean-to roof structure that shields you from the wind, but doesn't cut off air circulation. It wasn't a frigid night, but it was only 40 degrees, and we were comfortable.

But the set-up wasn't even the highlight - it was the service and the food that outdid themselves. The waiter never missed a beat, checking in on us, repeating our order two times to make sure that the details were correct, and steering us clear on items that contained gluten because one of our party has celiac. They had delicious hot sangria as a drink option too which was a nice touch. The food arrived hot and the quality was amazing - we'd eaten here before COVID and I think the food has actually improved. They offer a full menu as well (traditional Greek dishes as well as a large selection of grilled fish) which some restaurants are unable to manage at this point, but Amylos has it covered.

We had the full, leisurely dining experience which was capped off when our waiter came by with our check AND shots of Greek dessert wine - his treat - one for each of us and one for himself so that together we could toast the new year.

If you're looking to support local restaurants, look no further for an excellent place to spend your time and money. You will not be disappointed.

Pretty good food though a tad on my the expensive side. Heaters for cold is great but the last 1/3 of the outdoor space only has small ceiling heaters whereas the rest have ceiling and side heat.

We had a great time catching up with friends and our kids while having brunch.
The waitress was absolutely patient when taking our orders since it was 9 of us including 3 11yr old boys.
The food was amazing and the place in general was very welcoming.
We’ll definitely come back soon.

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.

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.
