Loved the restaurant. Amazing atmosphere and so fun! Pleasant staff. Only complaint is it is extremely hard to hear across the table (and I am only in my early 30s). Otherwise fabulous experience and can’t wait to return !

If your looking for fresh fish,lively atmosphere and great service you’ve found the perfect place. Ethos never disappoints!
Tonight my husband and I shared the grilled octopus 🐙 omg delicious. For dinner I had the dorado and he the Branzino , equally yummy. If your lucky enough you’ll get to experience a celebration Greek style with the whole restaurant joining the festivities.

We had a terrific birthday dinner for my wife. The staff was very attentive and sang her a nice birthday song with a sparkler. The food was solid as usual. Fish, calamari, greek salad always solid. One of our favorite restaurants on the East Side.

We had several small plates and enjoyed them all. It's possible to have a very good full meal doing this or selecting an appetizer and entrée. The grilled shrimp were excellent. Good wine list, too.

This restaurant is definitely the right place if you're in the mood to try a lot of different dishes. The shared small plates were perfect for a light bite and were all flavorful and unique.

The grilled octopus and the shrimp in olive oil were stand-out dishes for sure.

The only drawback was the waiter--he was a bit intrusive and unprofessionally friendly at the beginning of the meal. I was meeting a client and found it very inappropriate for him to suggest he join our meal and made my guest and I feel a bit uncomfortable.

I've been here before and have never had an issue, plus the food is truly fantastic. Overall, i'd recommend to check this place out.

There were 3 of us, not 2 for a birthday dinner. Wild Scottish salmon was perfect, best ever. After being seated, no service, beginning to feel neglected. But service did finally improve. Too noisy. The food would bring me a return.

We were a group of three. It was Sunday afternoon, and not crowded or noisy. Ordered three "small plates" as appetizers, and each had an entree. Handed us a drink menu along with food menus, but when I tried to order a drink, they told me there was no bartender and therefore could not provide drink. Seemed odd. Later, bartender was available, and they brought drink. The food was good to very-good and service was attentive and friendly. Not inexpensive. We will be back.

We go there often because it’s in our neighborhood. But also because the Greek menu is always great and the service always excellent! This time we went for my husbands birthday party- a group of nine. It was a surprise! Ethos cooperated with the surprise and gave us all a great time! Sparklers, music, also did not rush us at all
Great food, excellent time!

I’ve visited Ethos a few times. One of the best experiences was when the bartender was our waiter - he definitely made our experience better with great food recommendation and friendly demeanor. The octopus, shrimp and halloumi cheese were his recommendation and are my favorite!

If you are not celebrating a birthday, be prepared for your dining experience to come to a halt if anyone else is. It’s cute that the birthday songs are sung but the music is so loud you have to stop your conversation or yell over the noise.

Overall, however, it is a nice restaurant and the food is amazing!

While the food was very good, it was extremely noisy. And waiters were continuously stopping everything to bring out sparklers to table celebrating occasions.
Each time they did this, very loud music would be played and we had to stop our conversation. The first two times were fine. But this happened at least 5 times.
It's hard to believe there were that many celebrations going on in one evening.

The food is excellent and plentiful---an unusual combination. If you enjoy fish, go. The quality and variety are both outstanding. Only one issue keeps me from going to Ethos more often: the noise level. This issue can be avoided by going for lunch or very early dinner, the latter not a very good option for me.
