Athos is a superb find. The food is excellent and the servers are pleasant and knowledgeable.
Delicious dinners and apps with very polite and attentive staff. Lots of couples and groups were there but it wasn't overly loud. Priced fairly for the quality and atmosphere. The bar was hopping.
Dinner was tasty and the service was great.
Meals are always good.
The food was good although my fish filet was slightly overdone. The service was a bit spotty...appetizers didn't arrive at the same time and the entrees took unusually long. The traditional Greek dishes were the best choice over the American variations.
I have been gluten free for 15 years and have eaten a lot of Greek food because most Greek food is safe. This restaurant has the best food for those of us who have to avoid gluten and wheat. They even have gluten-free pita bread which is a real treat. Athos is the best Greek restaurant I have ever eaten at. This was my second celebration of a special occasion and can really state that the food is authentic, fresh and a cut above the usual restaurant. The wine selection is superb. The service is outstanding. I hope to return many times in the future.
It was our first time at this restaurant and we came away feeling very satisfied and ready ro plan a return trip. Creative menu, something for everyone. High quality, fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. Great flavors!
Everything was absolutely perfection. Will definitely make the drive to frequent this restaurant more often.
Food was good, not great but great service and a very pleasant place to visit with friends over dinner. Great salad and hummus. I had the lamb shank entree that was recommended by the waiter (a dish I make and love)- would not order again. Seasoning was not objectionable but not delicious for my palate. Would come back again and try something else. Spouse had the moussaka- decent but have had much better. (I prefer it made with lamb) Reasonably priced.
The variety of Greek specialities is spectacular. The fish is fresh and cooked in a number of different ways. The selection of appetizers is good, try the feta or warm olives. The house salad is excellent and should be shared. The lamb is delicious.
The wait staff is very knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating.
You can’t go wrong by coming here for a special occasion.
It was wonderful from start to finish. Good service and good food.
Athos never fails to impress. Delightful staff and excellent food.
We have gone here many times and always have had great food and service. We sat at the high top and our server did the bare minimum, never once asked my wife is she wanted another drink, never asked how our meal was or if we needed anything. My meal was very good but the seafood dish had the scallops undercooked, lobster overcooked and pasta overcooked. We will go again because when things are good, they are very good!
Great service. Excellent food, my meal was a little pricey for amount of food but very good tasting
The wines from Crete & Santorini are worth the visit. For desert, the Loukoumades were crispy & delicious. Food is a bit overpriced.
Excellent place in a great, central location! Highly recommended!
Excellent restaurant! My family and I really enjoyed it. The food, service and ambiance make it something special. We are of Greek descent, so I can vouch for the food! We will be back as my son goes to college in the area.
We had a pleasant meal, unhurried, with good food and the house wine. It was on the expensive side, but no regrets. The greek salad for 3 is impressive, the whole fish very well done and presented. We did not have desserts.
Have visited many times. Excellent as always. Will return.
Food was excellent, the atmosphere superb, and our waitress was knowledgeable, attentive and personable. We will be back!
Just OK tonight- it has been excellent other times before!
We were rushed. When we asked about specials the waitress answered with one word “Brindisi”, the bus boy nearly dumped plates on us and grabbed the silverware up in such a way that we were splashed. We asked not to be rushed as we were splitting a large Greek salad- but our food arrived the moment we finished salad. Not a relaxing Easter dinner. The busboy appeared 5 minutes later to ask if I wanted to box my Dinner! It would have been better to take everything to go in the first place. Very disappointing- we have dined at Athos since they opened but it is not what it used to be- now it’s more like the Cheesecake Factory :(
Group of high maintenance foodies in Albany for the day were thrilled to find this gem! Great food, perfectly executed, with friendly, attentive service. Don't hestitate to pick Athos for a solid, delicious meal!
We were celebrating my father-in-law’s 83rd birthday with 10 family members. We had excellent service, great food, and comfortable atmosphere. Staff was superb! Highly recommended!
I brought my friends for Greek food and they loved it
Best Greek restaurant I have ever been to... Outstanding!
Great food and service. Only complaint I had was the live music in the bar area was so loud our party had trouble speaking to each other from across the table.
We always have a wonderful dinner at Athos. The waitstaff are very attentive but not overbearing . The menu changes and additions are fun to look forward to. They pay special attention to Gluten free diets and this is so helpful. Love the atmosphere and dining options!
We were in the mood for Greek food and found the restaurant online.
The evening was very enjoyable with an excellent meal, attentive
service, and pleasant atmosphere. We would definitely return!
The food was excellent and authentic. My only criticism is the portion sizes - for $28 I ordered the Marinato. Besides rice and green beans, the dish included 3 shrimp and 2 small scallops. This dish should have cost $22 at most.
The food was delicious. Our server Charlie was very attentive, did not rush us and made excellent suggestions. We will definitely return.
A lot of noice.
Both our appetizers, dinners and desserts were delicious. Great service. Highly recommend this restaurant
Four of us order different meals and all raved about their choice Service was excellent
Just a wonderful meal.
we sampled their food on the lighter side, salads, sides, and an excellent whole bronzino. Very pleasant evening. The place was full by 6pm on Saturday, so I strongly recommend reservations.
We were seated within minutes of our reservation and the waitress was there very quickly. Thorough explanation of specials as well as complete answers to our questions about the menu. Food was wonderful, ambience was great!
Wonderful service and ambiance. Classy without being ostentatious or “over the top”. Excellent wine selection both red and white. If they offer the branzino don’t pass it up. Been here several times; never disappointed. I will be sure to dine there again.
Great ambience - loved the decor, seating, lighting.
Great staff/service - right from greeting team to the servers and operations staff.
My wife and I are vegetarians - Athos had a reasonable vegetarian variety - a little bit less for the mains but pretty good for the starters, salads and desserts.
Loved the dishes.
Will go back again to try other delicacies!
My birthday is on 2/14. I placed a special request in the reservation that was honored. Although it was a very busy night due to Valentine's Day, the staff was well organized. Our dinners were thoroughly enjoyed. We will most definitely return.
