With a commitment to the freshest, most flavorful fish, flown in daily from the Greek islands and featured in its open fish market, Milos offers a dining experience based on the simplicity and sincerity of the Mediterranean diet. The restaurant's airy, elegant setting is enhanced with a variety of private dining rooms. Founder and chef Costas Spiliadis continues the standard of excellence and hospitality he began in Montreal, where he opened the original Milos.

Patrons can choose their fish from an abundant market display and watch it swiftly grilled in the open kitchen.

The menu is a la carte, with a popular $32 lunch prix fixe, $49 pre-theater menu, and $49 late night menu.

The food was very tasty and well presented

The calamari was tender and tasty

The filet Mignon was cooked to perfection and the potatoes were just like my grandmothers cooking.
Being Greek I am a hard critic but this restaurant is the authentic Greek cuisine!
I highly recommend this restaurant.

The tomato salad by itself maybe the finest salad on the east coast. the tower of eggplant and zucchini is, well about as good as it gets. Let them pick you out a greek wine and pick the fish and you have as fine of meal as to be had in NYC or Greece. Bravo

Went for Restaurant Week; as always, the service, the food and the care taken to presentation was sublime. While the noise level was high, it didn't detract from our absolutely wonderful meal or conversation. Strongly recommend, even with the prices being high!

Was Babe Ruth a good baseball player? Is LeBron great at basketball? Is Milos a great restaurant? Not a great Greek seafood restaurant, mind you, merely one of the top two or three truly superb restaurants In New York city of any type, this in a city with possibly the most diverse restaurant offerings anywhere in the world. That there's nothing in its category that remotely compares is really not open to question. It is consistently excellent, and dining here is always a memorable experience. I was fortunate to dine there on the day they opened, expanding their empire from Montreal, and they haven't lost a step. They're still hitting it out of the park, so don't miss it if you get the opportunity.

Long wait for table, squeezed so close that you get to enjoy many table conversations around you. Front of house lacks customer service unless you are known to them. Bartenders are great and worth just getting drinks at the bar, but be careful when you get up, was you may end up bumping into dinner tables placed within 3ft of bar. There was even a 4 top placed few feet of main door where many guests stand while waiting for a table. They are savvy to market lunch only restaurant week menus, and have guests pay full price at dinner. Be careful and ready the menus closely. It’s midtown and full of tourists, expect high prices and quick turnover.

The venue is lovely and the staff attentive. It was a bait and switch.
I requested the red snapper for my fish. They charge by the pound and prepare your fish to order. I knew that in advance.
What I didn't appreciate was the lie. When I ordered red snapper, I was told they didn't have red snapper local or domestic. The waiter did offer a fish similiar to snapper that was Greek in origin. I explained that I like light flaky fish. He said this one was more dense flesh but a white flaky fish. So I agreed to take it.

Imagine my surprise, when after the bill was paid and the fish was $70/lbs coming to a little over $100. I went to the restroom, passed by the fish market presentation and there was red snapper available. It was there fresh and firm and marked $48/lb. It was surprising and disheartening.

We already had another problem with our bill. We ordered the Milos special (zucchini and eggplant) in a small, received it, but were charged for the large. The waiter mentioned that we ate a large, but ours was the same size as the small ordered by the single gentleman next to us. Plus, I specifically requested small when we ordered, so there would be no confusion, which sometimes happens with various sizes offered for appetizers.

It took about 10 minutes for the waiter to find the manager and edit the bill for the Milos special.

Both of those actions took a pleasant meal with good ambience and ruined it. I will not be back.

Suggestion: always go over to fish presentation to choose your fish and check your bill. A typical serving for 2 people should be about a pound and a half.

Fantastic! Had called asking for a quieter table for a business dinner and Milos could not have been more accommodating. Gave us a lovely glassed in room which happened to be available. Service was terrific, it’s a given that the fish selections and preparations were top notch, but the service and warmth will bring us back again sooner than later. Thank you Team Milos!!

Food was delicious.
If applicable, be sure to ask for the pre-theater menu... it was not given to us with the regular menu.
One complaint: the wine selection by the glass is quite limited, almost exclusively Greek wines. There is no cocktail menu to see, and $19 for a vodka seems excessive.

Quite simply wonderful fresh fish. Consistently for more than 20 years I have been going,

Only flaw is the noise level which can make conversation difficult.

Fantastic place for dinner if you like the busy excitement of NYC. Loud, but the food cannot be beat. Lavarki in salt was excellent, moist and done perfectly. Milos special pleased everyone at the table. The octopus was the favorite and the tomato salad was just the right amount for four. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves good fish, a lighter meal, but beware, it is LOUD. Very, very loud. 100% worth the noise level to us!

Fantastic meal, our server (Peter) was terrific. We were lucky to be in a quieter area, place in general is not quiet for sure with big high ceilings and lots of glass and concrete, but the food is first rate. The grilled vegetables as a side to your favorite fish is a can’t miss. We will be going back —

Website claims food, to be excellent, must be pure, clean, etc. That is an understatement. It is so difficult to find restaurants in the US that understand that quality is not determined by how many spices or sauces you pour on a food, but by the ability to exalt the food's elements. The dipping sauce for the fried calamari actually compliments its delicacy. The lamb chops were grilled to perfection.

It should be necessary to improve the noise level. It’s basically impossible to talk during the dinner...
