Seafood
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 beautiful and the service was good-just has more of a snobby vibe which was disappointing. This was my second time dining here and it was good but for the price, a bit more warmth from the staff would have been nice.

They ran out of calamari , which was the dish that I went to the restaurant for. Disappointing

Lovely restaurant. Menu is a bit difficult in regards to the market place per pound pricing on some items. Our table of four enjoyed the appetizers and the entrees we ordered but the desserts were only okay.

The ITALIAN WAITER has been the best! I live in NY and I decided to come to Milos because everyone told me that the fish is great, but I really appreciate the Italian waiter that served us and choose for us two beautiful lobsters!

Absolutely recommended, and ask for the Italian guy: nice, respectful, funny, well-organized.

Gorgeous restaurant. Went after the theater with my sister in law, an out of towner, and happy I did. The wait staff could not have been more attentive. We both had the $49 set menu available after 9:30, with grilled octopus and crab cake to start, very generously portioned, a Greek salad beautifully presented and for the main course, had the salmon, which had a wonderful flavor, but was a touch overdone. All in all, this NYC dining experience was fabulous. Rated five stars in all categories.

Service could be improved - it didn’t match it’s reputation. Service was a sloppy and rushed.

The food was outrageously good, but the staff runs the place like a factory. The front desk had the “we don’t need your business” attitude. The wait staff seemed to be incentivized to move you along as quickly as possible so the next group could be seated. Excellent food, bad attitude.

We were seated upstairs for a business lunch, where there was quite a bit of echo. The food was excellent as always, but it seemed like the kitchen and/or staff had too much on their hands, as the meal was slow to arrive and the breaks between courses was very long (total of nearly two hours for a table d'hôte lunch). Most of us had to skip coffee as we had other engagements to run off to.

I would certainly return, but would request not to be seated upstairs where the acoustics aren't very good, and may avoid the table d'hôte given it could be a 1.5 hour commitment!

Thanks!

Food was excellent, table service excellent, loved “shopping” for our fish! The downer was that although we had reservations which we were asked repeatedly to confirm, when we arrived at the restaurant at the designated time, we had to wait almost a half hour for our table...put my husband’s teeth on edge, which was not the best way to begin an anniversary dinner date!

We have dined at Milos previously and enjoyed it but today we were rushed thru the meal. The wait staff attempted to remove plates before we were finished . When we check in they ask if we had a show to attend and we said no so why the rush? We will think twice about a return visit.

My dad and I had dinner here as the last stop of our New York trip. The staff was so nice and service was excellent. The food was fresh and perfect. Coming to Estiatorio Milos was the perfect end to an unforgettable trip!

The waiting staff were great but the food was hugely disappointing. Many of the items we picked off the menu were not available (it would have been helpful if we had been told what was available when we sat down to avoid wasting time choosing a number of times only to be told it was unavailable). When the food did come the quality of it was hugely disappointing and in no way justified the price

Beautiful ambiance and lively atmosphere. We ordered from the pre theater menu and there was a fairly good number of options to choose from. The food was very good and portion sizes were generous. The service was very attentive and friendly. The pre theater menu was a very good value, especially considering it’s NYC.

I was excited to try this restaurant. We were a party of 6. Most wanted the Prefix dinner as we had a show to attend. The servers rushed us and in my opinion had an " air of superiority ". I had wanted to order off the menu. The waiter said he would be creative. Instead he served me different versions of what my friends had despite my stated wishes. My portion of the main course of sea bream($91.00) was smaller than the prefix porion of the same fish and was full of bones. It was my strong opinion that we were rushed by the staff and no real effort was given to our entire table. I was very dissatisfied despite the beautiful setting.

Great spot Pre theatre or after work. Just be sure to clarify if you want to sit in the main room. We did not and were seated in a quiet upper room. Would have preferred to have been in the main area in the flow. Great food great service.

We had a wonderful meal and the restaurant is beautiful. Staff were very attentive and helpful. The only criticism I would have relates to cost. I appreciate that New York is expensive and that this is a top end restaurant but the cost of the fish was so very expensive. I feel that 120$ for a piece of fish for two people is extortionate.

The pre-theatre menu is great value and offered us an amazing meal. It introduced us to this restaurant for the first time. We will definitely be back. While I'm no expert reviewer/foodie, I'd wager this is one of the top seafood spots in the city, up there with any of the other well known places like Marea, Aquagrill, and Esca. Thanks for a great meal. Cheers!

So very disappointing. I have been here many times and was looking forward to a lovely lunch with my daughter. We arrived a few minutes before 11:30 and it was pouring rain and they had their storm doors locked so one could not wait in the small area before entering their restaurant. We kept trying to catch someone’s eye to open the storm doors...and everyone kept looking away. When we were seated it took 20 minutes before someone came over to hand us menus and order some wine. Everyone seemed busy setting the tables which seemed very confusing to me. A server came and we went to look at the fish selection and when we returned to our table he never came back. Instead he served a table of four and we were passed on to a server who really knew nothing. The Greek spreads was just okay. The crab cake was delightful. The horror story was with the Dover Sole. It was dry and hard...not light and flaky. The server finally came over and asked how it was and my response was not favorable and he just disappeared. I asked for the check as I did not want to spend another second in this place. $75 for a Dover sole that is overcooked is inexcusable. On our way out we were asked how lunch was and I explained that we were not happy at all to which the gentleman said “tell me what can I do for you?” I should not have to tell him what he can do for me... he should tell me what he can do for me. Horrible service, horrible food. Definitely not a top notch restaurant. Sad.

Food is outstanding but very pricey. Disappointed with our table in the bar area despite having a reservation for the dining room. Hostess had a very abrupt attitude. The chef helped with the entree selection and the sommelier recommended an excellent Greek wine. We ordered a salad and an appetizer to share but both were brought at the same time making us feel rushed.

Never fails to impress. Fish & seafood as fresh as can be, simply prepared so as not to mask the quality of the product. Attentive, friendly service in a beautiful setting.
