First time there.
Read the reviews, most were positive.
Some key points were that they pushed drinks, which was somewhat true!
Music was too loud, also true!
We had an excellent waiter named Panos.
The food was quite delicious, with good flavor.
The octopus starter was fantastic as was the wild salmon with lentils.
The double pork chop was a good quality, but pricey.
The Greek salad was very fresh.
One person was a vegan..not a ton of options.
She needed to order the sides of vegetables for her main..it would of been nice if they would have made a plate for her with a little of all the vegetables, but they would not!
All in all, great decor, nice staff, and food that was on point!

Awesome night. Panos our waiter was awesome. We had a big group last night 8 cousins turned into 10. He was so kind and gracious. He gave us great suggestions. The fig cocktail called the frigenza was so refreshing. We had apps from zucchini chips, octopus melted in your. I had the scallops that were to die for. Cousins had halibut that was superb and lobster macaronada. Can’t forget desserts. Oh my . I can’t wait to go again. Thank you Panos for making our night amazing. See u soon. Love Dina

This was an ok restaurant. The food that we ordered wasn’t good. The steak was over cooked and the fish lacked flavor. Lots of burnt char taste. The ambiance is nice, one of the server had really bad breath. You could try it. It’s not the worst we have been to. But certainly not the best for the price.

Amylos is trying to be fine dinning without being fine at all.
Food is good at Amylos, but the service is very annoying.
I had a server who came 2 times to ask how appetizers are, and he came 3 times to ask how main course was. Please give me a break let me eat in my peace and quietness. Even the manager came to ask how is everything.

Mediocre service.

Very good Greek fare! Our waiter recommended the octopus and it did not disappoint! Service was fantastic and they did a great job on the interior of this restaurant. I was a nice night to sit by the open windows to the street. If the owner is from Omonia Café, I wonder why they don't serve baklava (Omonia has great baklava!)? Over all, great place for date night with elevated Greek cuisine vs. the typical Astoria fare.

Staff was very friendly like a family business. Food was outstanding, but appetizer portions were a little small for the price. Drinks were a good value from mixologist creations to the wine. $11 for a nice Pono Grigio was appreciated. Entrees were delicious across the board, seafood pasta and risotto very tasty. Lamb chops were worth it and cooked to specification. Lamb shank was the lamb bomb, good portion and braised to perfection. We’ve added Amylos to our top 10 list in NYC!

This place never disappoints me. I’ve been coming here consistently and it’s definitely worth the short trip from Manhattan. Hands down the best Greek restaurant in New York City, I always have the best experience.

Great place in Queens. Attentive servers and all around super sweet. The space is also gorgeous. It was our anniversary and they treated us like stars. We had the grilled calamari, the pork chop, and the slow roasted lamb. Everything was great but the pork chop was the highlight of the evening. It came with a jam and perfectly flavored mashed potatoes on the bottom. The outside of the pork chop was crispy and tender on the inside. Definitely looking forward to coming back

Our server was so pushy ! I think she was annoyed doing her job. Put the food on the table and asks how is it? We haven’t even started eating! Through out the evening she made us feel rushed. No room to breathe or relax . Wouldn’t even give us a few good mins to decide on the menu. Kept asking are you ready to order!!!! And at one point she asked if we were even gonna order dinner? Ummm!!! WEIRD! This is my 3rd time and probably be the last to Amylos! Let’s get a good grip on the service! Please allow customers to enjoy their evening and if we need something we will ask, you don’t have to check million times! Also we understand that we can’t be sitting in the restaurant for ever, so YES! We are aware of timing- and we will order accordingly.

This is the 2nd time I come here and someone in my party orders a lamb shank, and the lamb shank comes completely cold and needs to be taken back to reheat. Clearly not fresh, very disappointing because other than that our experience here was great. We were still charged for the dish too, which I thought was disappointing.
Service was great though, waiter was very friendly.

Took 5 teenage grandchildren along with our daughter and her spouse to Amylos after a Mets game. Everyone loved the food, ambiance and service. Dishes we ordered ranged from fish, shrimp, steak and lamb chops and everything was cooked to perfection. Would definitely go back.

The baby lamb special was terrible and inedible full of fat gristle and small bones.
The rest of the food was fair to good. The waiter was very poor in his descriptions of the food preparations.
The constant interruptions for birthday celebrations was most annoying, the lights went out without warning then came the parade of wait staff with a giant sparkler.
I am all for birthdays but there has to be a better way.

We came here for Mother’s Day so it was very crowded and super loud! But we had reservations and were seated right away. Everyone was sooooo polite and nice. Our waitress was lovely. The food was delicious. I would call it upscale Greek food. Everything we had was yummy. My Bronzino was cooked to perfection. The rock shrimp, zucchini/eggplant chips, fig salad and octopus were delicious. My son had Pork Greek tacos. There are three to an order. They were great. Overall an excellent experience.
