Attentive but not bothersome service. The short ribs were EXCELLENT. Octopus perfectly cooked.
The food is always amazing. The grilled octopus is our favorite!
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.
consistently great food, drinks and service
excellent attention to detail and safety
Every time we visit family in Albany we love to dine at Athos. It is always outstanding in terms of food, service and ambiance.
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 😞
Delicious food, great service- wait staff was very attentive. Nice ambience and I like the use of lattice screens to separate the tables. Was my second time dining here.
Best Greek food in New York !!!! I highly recommend
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!
Food was delicious. Timing was perfect we were able to enjoy our appetizers before our dinners arrived.
Fantastic greek restaurant and friendly staff. Would highly recommend!
All good. Great food. Friendly staff. A lot to choose from on the menu. Highly recommended.
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.
We love Athos...our favorite Albany area restaurant. We make it a part of our time in town whenever we are there for a visit. This past week it was outstanding...never better!
Great greek food. Appetizers too.
In a pandemic, the restaurant was warming and inviting while maintaining social distancing. What more could one ask for?
Everything was fresh, delicious, expertly prepared, plated and presented. Staff was attentive, gracious and welcoming.
Our waiter was friendly, attentive, but not intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
Great restaurant. They have made excellent changes to keep clients safe during COVID. Food is always outstanding. One of our favorites.
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.
Food very good. Service good. Ambiance good. Would gladly come back to try other menu items! Highly recommend!
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.
Great atmosphere and all necessary social distancing measures in place, very nice set up. Great to get back to date nights
Keep going back because it is so awesome
The dishes were wonderful! Pita and various Greek dips, grilled octopus and braised lamb shank. Service was impeccable and responsive to our needs. They made a special birthday dinner truly special. A Greek custard in Phllyo was done to perfection.
Covid measures were evident and done in a way to create intimate dining areas within the restaurant. Well done all around!
Athos has to be one of the best Greek restaurants around! The food is delicious and authentic Greek, the staff friendly and helpful. The owner ensures she stops by your table to ask how everything is and sets a welcoming tone to the restaurant. Really recommend Athos to anyone who loves Greek food, a wonderful selection of wines, delicious deserts and a fabulous atmosphere!
So happy to see this restaurant has survived COVID-19 restrictions. Greeting, service, meal, ambience, etc. was wonderful. I agree with a previous reviewer, that Athos has done an excellent job following protocols, and has actually made it more "private" by the addition of the screens between tables.
It was our first time there. People recommended it and it lived up to everything we thought. Fantastic Greek authentic experience!
Everything was fantastic. The food was delicious and perfect.
Great food and service as expected when we go to Athos. Restaurant followed all safety guidelines and handled the situation very well. Will definitely return.
Just a fantastic restaurant. The food is always delicious
Food, service and restaurant are fabulous. Very COVID friendly!
The food is wonderful. The safety features were excellent. Service was also terrific.
We went to Athos to celebrate a birthday. We felt very safe from COVID as the spaces were well separated with dividers. The wait staff was fully masked and worn gloves. The food was excellent as expected. Wonderfully prepared and presented. It was very quiet and we were able to have wonderful conversation. It was a perfect evening. We will return soon.
Strong safety measures didn’t hurt anything. Nice dinner and great to see Terry back behind the bar. We’ll certainly be back!
Must go spot for dinner for two, or even a small party
Always a great atmosphere, value and experience
The food and service was excellent. We would definitely recommend and would definitely go back.
