The name “Amylos” denotes our passion for food and bringing to you Greece’s authentic flavors. We carefully chose the most original recipes ranging from various regions in Greece; starting from the southern Aegean islands to the northern mainland, each region has its own unique take on cooking. Amylos, meaning the “building blocks of food”, is synonymous to our concept of building a sustainable menu created from pure raw materials, attention to detail, nonnegotiable standards, and ingredients of the finest quality. Complete your pallet by indulging in our selective wine list which takes you through a journey of the old to new world. This, coupled with warm and friendly service, and our inviting, cozy ambiance are what make up the ingredients of Amylos’ recipe for “philoxenia”. Our concept is to honor the traditional Greek flavors and hospitality combined with the allure of modern presentation in a contemporary setting.

I took my mom to dinner the day after Thanksgiving and we both had an amazing time. The food is very good, the atmosphere is fun, there’s a DJ playing music in the back and there is an elevator for handicap patrons who need to access the restrooms in the lower level.

Our dining experience was great in every way except for the loud, really bad 90’s pop music playlist that was blasting the whole time. Would have been much better with some lesser volume music and even better with traditional Greek music.

Great dining experience—delicious food (nice portions) in a beautiful setting. We had the lamb burger, salmon burger, lamb gyro, scallops with caviar and the lamb shank, also 3 dips with pita. Everyone loved their food. Our server, Panos, was super attentive, making it a wonderful experience. I’d definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful meal consisting of several appetizers (the phyllo purses and grilled octopus were the best), a 2lb grilled Branzino to share, and lava cake for dessert. Good beer and cocktail. Steven, our server, was very friendly and attentive and gave excellent suggestions. The music was a bit too loud and no one asked for our vax cards. But the dining area where we were seated was open so we felt ok. We will be back!

Came here for a birthday dinner with friends. Server was attentive, gave recommendations for which wine goes best with which dish. The octopus & lamb chops were delicious. We got a free shot at the end of the night. I always recommend this spot to family & friends!

Their outdoor seating area is put together quite well. It is, however, in what was a traffic lane, so when the light at the corner is red traffic backs up and engine noise gets loud, and NYC drivers don't help by pounding their horns the second the light changes.

The food was uniformly excellent. Mezes were presented well and delicious. Fish entrees were thoroughly enjoyed. The wine list offers a good variety of options.

Overall, we were there a couple of months ago, came back, and are looking forward to returning again when we're in the city next.

Delicious food. We got a 3lb fish with 3 sides. Also highly recommend the phyllo purses. Our waitress was extremely busy but still managed to be attentive, and even brought us a couple of rounds of shots. Lively meal!
