Went to this place a couple of times and this time I got sick and felt really bad so I am really disappointed because I was so happy to eat fresh fish but actually it wasn’t and since I put a lot of lemon on fish I couldn’t feel it
So now I will avoid this place and try other restaurant in the neighborhood

As always Ethos Gallery did not disappoint. Love the Greek island atmosphere in the restaurant and how they shut the lights and use sparklers every so often once it's dark out to liven up the atmosphere. Amazing sea bass main course, but the meatballs in the Seftalia app were pretty dry and could have used more tzatziki sauce. Great service and they even brought us a complimentary Greek dessert with chocolate mousse that was delicious!

It feels like you're in Greece! Second time here, and did not disappoint. Great food, wonderful feeling in the dining room (again, makes you feel like you're in a coastal Greek restaurant), it is a lively place (so for those who want a quiet / low key dining experience I would not recommend this place). Great small plate selection. I will be back for sure.

Ethos lived up to our previous experiences here. The Ethos chips (zucchini and eggplant) were crisp and delicious, as usual. We just ordered small plates, but they were more than adequate. The complimentary desserts are a very nice touch. Service is personable and attentive. It can be very noisy at peak times.

Very disappointing. Not only was the noise level deafening but there was background “music”. I put music in quotes because one couldn’t actually hear it; you could just feel the intense constant thumping of the beat (woofer). It ruined the evening. I wanted to sit with a friend and have good conversation over a relaxing dinner. This was impossible. The only way to communicate would have been through sign language. The manager said he turned the music down but that was irrelevant because of the constant pounding beat that went straight through you.

I enjoyed my visit to Ethos Gallery. A got the beets and skordalia, which was very good, but on the smaller side (it was a small plate, but $15 was a but much), and my boyfriend really enjoyed his salmon. The interior is very cute, bright, and beachy, and the service was great! We went on the earlier side (6:15), but it was not crowded at all. The complimentary toast and hummus was great, and they gave us a free dessert that was much appreciated :)

We’ve always loved coming here. My wife picked this restaurant to celebrate her birthday and they used do a great celebration. They brought over a desert and when I asked for a candle they said wait 10 minutes for the music to start. They told us they can celebrate birthdays ever hour on the hour. I asked again for just a candle, at that point forget the singing and music celebration - nothing. We informed them of the birthday when making the reservation, when we sat down, and before desert. It was exceptionally hot in there as well. Overall, a very poor experience and making my wife unhappy on her birthday = we will not be going back.

Food was quite good, but service was abominable. We were four people, and dishes came out one at a time over a period of about 30 minutes or more, with appetizer for the table after about -20. Never had service this bad before, anywhere.

This was the second time we visited Ethos’s for lunch. They never disappoint. We ordered from the prefix lunch menu. I had the Greek salad and dorado, my husband the grilled octopus and the dorado. We both asked for well done fries as our side. We asked for the unlimited wine option. The food was as always delicious, the wine truly was unlimited. This is our go to restaurant, the fish is always fresh and delicious, the atmosphere electric, and service top notch.
Do yourself a favor and experience their hospitality.
