I have been here 2x. 1st time excellent service-2nd time was not as attentive. No expresso - did not like the calamari- I am not a connoisseur of Greek food so you should try dining here & draw your own conclusions.

I have been to Athos a few times now and have had a wonderful experience every time. The staff are helpful and so friendly. The food is absolutely delicious. I try something new each time and have never been disappointed. The prices are competitive and you certainly get your money’s worth. I can’t wait for my next visit!

Nice outdoor setting with propane heaters, perfect for a 55 degree evening. Athos maintains its reputation for fine dining and great service. Good distance between tables. Indoors was packed on a Saturday evening: happy for them as far as business, but unsure about the safety despite wooden petitions between tables.

We had a party of 6. We waited a while for service, although the servers were kind, empathetic and acknowledged our needs. The food needed seasoning and was just okay. Very expensive for not the greatest flavors.

Overall great dining experience. The food is always delicious. My only disappointment was that we were celebrating 2 birthdays and based on the amount spent our waitress did nothing to acknowledge our celebration. Not even a free coffee 😞

First time out since lockdown. They have special air filters, dividers between each table, all staff are vaccinated. Felt super safe and honestly felt valued and welcomed by all of the staff. Food is always outstanding - and the value for the money is exceptional. We had salad, appetizer, two entrees, dessert, sparkling water, alcoholic drink, etc. and the bill with the tip was still under $125. They have contact free menus (scan a code on your phone) or paper and contact free payment (pay via your phone) if you opt for that. Really impressed. They made a special occasion even more special!

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. Our server was attentive and prompt. The restaurant has great Covid precautions. The food is delicious! From my perspective it seems very authentic, though I am not Greek. I have traveled to the country and found their food quite comparable.

Everything was wonderful but I was very tired so I asked for our dessert to go. There was a miscommunication and the server , not knowing our to-go dessert had been delivered did not bring the check as quickly as hoped for. Otherwise, everything was as we desired.

We are so glad Athos is reopened and going strong. We loved our experience from start to finish - including a special cocktail designed for me when I specified “boozy and not too sweet.”

I recommend Athos. Very good food in a nice atmosphere. The prices were not inexpensive... but not entirely unreasonable. A great place for a small group, or a duo. Great place for a dinner date.
