Amazing!!! The food was phenomenal. I ordered the rabbit stew (amazing cinnamon sauce) and my wife the pork chop (with greek cheese and an awesome flavor balance). Both were indescribably awesome. We split octopus for an appetizer. Amazing night. Great service!

This was one of the best experiences I have EVER had at age 52. Staff was young but impeccable with knowledge of the menu, sweetness, attentiveness, classy! Just so impressed by them all. Even the waitress in training was amazing!
The food was divine and gluten free friendly for my husband! The drinks and their Greek version of the Martini in the "Mare'tini" was sensational and mixed to perfection. Smooth, icey, high-end!

I am so excited for furture visits and we tipped well. Please remember all places are functioning with minimal staff. Take care of them at all establishments well.

I cannot wait to go again! Make a reservation for SURE!

The kitchen was very behind with food most likely due to two large parties! Expecting much better quality for the price, nice restaurant that has GF options but not sure I would return. Salmon was very basic with almost no seasoning and pork chop was over cooked

The food. Waitstaff and hostess were all great. Table was a bit of a tight squeeze but we made do. Gentleman on other side of the makeshift wall kept banging me. Noise level was high our waiter had a difficult time hearing is.

Food was amazing, friendly staff that although we had a reservation and they where closed by the time we had finished our meal, never attempted to shoo us away or hint that they where closed. We loved it and would definitely go back. The octopus, lamb, beets salad, off the charts. Lemon base potatoes au gratin amazing. Price was very adequate for the high quality and preparation of the meal.

The food at Athos is awesome! Even though we were unfamiliar with most of the dishes (and we couldn't pronounce them), the wait staff was very helpful and everything we ordered was delicious. We will definitely eat there again, soon.

We made reservations online. It turned out to be a gorgeous night, so when we got there asked if we could be seated outside instead. Absolutely no problem. Nisha was our server. She was amazing. So delightful, really knew her stuff and had perfect timing! The food was the best we’ve eaten in a very long time! Do not miss the lamb chops! We will be back soon!
