We did not dine there so I cannot speak to the quality of the food. The menu looked good.
Only when we arrived, We were advised that they do not serve alcohol because of liquor license issue. Maybe I missed it but I did not see any notice or warning to that effect on OpenTable or their website. In fact when I browsed through their photos, I saw cocktail drinks that looked like mojito and margaritas. Totally misled me into assuming alcoholic beverages are served. (I generally assume these restaurants serve alcoholic beverages unless otherwise noted)
Since we could not BYOB either we left. We had to wait 20 minutes in the freezing cold weather to catch a ride to get to another restaurant that served wine.

Great food and service, but we were surprised to learn they didn’t have their liquor license when we arrived. Stayed and had a wonderful meal anyway! Can’t wait to go back when they can serve alcohol again!

Truly disappointing. I did not realize the restaurant does not serve alcohol. My friend and I were really looking forward to catching up over a glass of wine. Greek cuisine is one of my faves and this was just okay. The waitstaff was friendly enough, but didn't check on us too often. Although, they sent over a free sample of dessert after we settled the bill, I will not be returning.

Excellent service and food was amazing! Server helped us pick out a Greek wine because we were not familiar with options. Choice was perfect and reasonably priced. The whole fish dishes are absolutely delicious. We tried many of the appetizers (octopus, calamari, flaming cheese, croquettes)- everything was great!

We went for a brunch menu we saw on line only to find out that their web site included an extensive menu with eggs etc but the waiter told us that the web site was wrong. When we sat down water drops started coming from the ceiling. Then we noticed that the tablecloths had stains. Since we were a large party we stayed and the food was ok nothing to rave about. All in all disappointing on several levels.

First time here. The restaurant was very warm on a summer’s day. A little uncomfortable but fine. Very nice staff. We ordered several small plates to share and each was delicious. The traditional Greek salad and octopus were my favorites. They were out of the tuna tartar which was disappointing. It didn’t blow me away as an overall experience but nice food.

Had an amazing time at EROS! The restaurant is beautifully set up and clean. The restaurant decor is fabulous and has a very cozy feel. Every staff member that we spoke to was very nice. Our server was Kazas and he was amazing! Very attentive and answered all of our questions. Definitely will be back soon!

Food and service was great. My only complaint was that we went on a very hot and humid day to enter the restaurant that was just as hot, made it a bit uncomfortable.

Delicious small plates - ample amount of food for 2 people to share for an interesting dinner. The service was a little spotty - our waiter was not very personable and pretty much ignored us. the bussing staff was accommodating. We would go back again and hope that the service had improved.

I love Eros for the food, staff and ambiance. I have been eating at Eros for 7 years and love bringing my friends and family to enjoy my fav go to city greek/med restaurant. Chicken in a clay pot, branzino, all the traditional spreads with warm bread, the greek red wine, table olives, halloumi, lamb chops....you can't go wrong with any menu selection. Do yourself a favor and visit Eros, I highly recommend it. Enjoy! Did I mention I love the staff?!?!

Loved this place! We split a tomato salad that was purely delicious. I had the boneless ribeye that was perfectly cooked and had the right amount of fat. I substituted the rice for grilled asparagus. My companion had the fish, which the waiter filleted at the table. I’m not much of a fish eater but I took a taste and it was perfect. We will be back!

I reserved the 10.30pm Open Table slot (there was also a 10.45 available). I showed up at 10.20 and they said that the kitchen is close. If I knew that I would have gone somewhere else - depended on the reservation slot that was offered on the website.

I always visit Eros when I want a fine Greek meal. The food is fresh and beautifully prepared and presented. the service is excellent. The waiters remember me from time to time.

If I am early, I take advantage of the wonderful happy hour drinks.
