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.

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.

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.

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!

The wines from Crete & Santorini are worth the visit. For desert, the Loukoumades were crispy & delicious. Food is a bit overpriced.

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.

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 :(

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.

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!
