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!

Waited well over an hour for two entrees without a single checkin or acknowledgement from our server. Had to flag him down after the food came out to get our check. Kalamari and the half chicken was good but the side veggies tasted canned. Would go somewhere else

First of all, we will definitely go back at some point the food was very good and the table service was outstanding. However, this particular night they had some staffing issues in the kitchen and dinner took us about 2.5 hours. If I could I would give them a 3.5 for the night and if not for the delay a 4.5 score.

The food and service were excellent. The place is beautiful. We were sat in a small room with 4 tables and there were cobwebs in the corners and gnats. The server we had was outstanding and attentive and like I said, the food was amazing.

My husband sent his dinner back twice. The first time the food was not cooked. The second time the food was not cooked and now it was cold as well. I think they just put it on the counter and then brought it back out again. Totally disappointing. We have been to Athos several times "pre-Covid" and were hoping to have the same great experience. Clearly something has changed. We won't be going back.

The food was delicious. We ordered the octopus appetizer and it was the best I've ever eaten. I've had octopus from Croatia to Naples. This perfectly prepared. I ordered the Branzino fish which was perfectly prepared with green beans as a side and rice. Our server was very knowledgeable about the entrees on the menu. Also he was very knowledgeable about the pairing of wines to select for our meal and dessert. They deserve the label for being the best Greek Restaurant in the Capital District. We will be returning soon.

The food was very good, and we had a nice outdoor patio table. Service was VERY slow, and we waited an hour for our food. Luckily we were with a chatty group we enjoyed being with, and the waiter was generous with the delicious pita and apologetic about the wait.

Excellent service and delicious food. My bronzini filet was cooked perfectly. My sister had a shrimp dish in some kind of tomato sauce which was also delicious. We dined on a quiet Tuesday evening and were seated in a small room off the main dining room. We had the room to ourselves which was really nice-so quiet. We will definitely return for dinner again.
