Previously ate here and always enjoyed it. Unfortunately at this visit, 6:00 on a Sunday night , after a drink, we were informed that most main dishes were not available. They did not have 90% of the fish on the menu. They should have called us and let us know. How disappointing.

Ethos Gallery never disappoints! I dined with a different group of family, and as usual, the food and drinks were off the charts amazing. I have said before that the grilled octopus is better than what I had in Greece, and a member of my party ordered an additional order to go. Try every app! The salads, spreads, Ethos chips, calamari, meatballs, grape leaves. It's all extraordinary! And of course the fish is classic and fresh. Environment is lively, festive and fun. Service is superb

This is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is amazing and the waitstaff is so nice. I am gluten free and they have always been knowledgable and accommodating of this. They are also super friendly towards children (at least for early seatings). If it's your birthday, they sing happy birthday and bring out sparklers--very energetic and fun!

All was enjoyable, though I would say the entree dishes (both fish) were under seasoned, and not a standout. They were also a bit pricy. We shared a small plate as appetizer, which was very nice - the cypriotic-style grilled meatballs. A complimentary dessert was a very nice touch, and delicious. The place is crowded and energetic; when people had birthdays to celebrate the whole room gets caught up in a flashy and loud music recognition.

The ambiance was nice (more on the noisy side), the service was good and the food was great. We were a little disappointed with the lack of desserts.
We had the grilled octopus small plate and Cypriot meatballs as appetizers and Black Sea Bass and Sea Food Orzo as main courses.
Overall we enjoyed our dinner.

We had a very enjoyable dinner -- my first time at the restaurant. The lamb chops were superb, and the Lavraki (bronzini) was also delicate and tasty. The grilled calamari appetizer was excellent. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Will happily return.

Ethos Gallerie is an excellent restaurant featuring fresh seafood
of the highest quality. The service is attentive and pleasant and
the ambience attractive. It is an excellent neighborhood find but
best for lunch or early dinner as it becomes noisy after about 7:00
pm. I never have had a bad meal there in all the times I have visited
the restaurant.

Ethos is outstanding and consistent. Packed on a Saturday night, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Drinks are delicious. I had a fig martini. My group loves to get a lot of apps: octopus, Greek salad, meatballs- 2 types, beets, shrimp,- there are so many more great ones. and the fish entrees are fabulous. It's our favorite place to get together in the city, and we all crave the food! We can't wait to go back!

My husband and I have been to this restaurant at least 30 times in the last 6 years and have been avid advocates for it. Unfortunately tonight they have let me down in an irrevocable way and I WILL NEVER GO AGAIN.
I ordered the Greek salad and ate a human hair that was inside the salad. I brought this to the managers attention and he appropriately apologized and offered me another fresh salad. The second salad was delivered, which I then began to eat and after the second mouthful found another human hair inside my mouth. I was mortified and I brought it to the attention of the manager again. He then proceeded to tell me that his kitchen staff all have shorthair and, as such, he does not understand how I had a medium length hair in my salad (my hair was not in the way of the meal at all).
I honestly felt like he was insinuating that my hair was in the salad twice, which greatly insulted me. I then asked for the check because I felt ill both from the hair and the managers actions. My husband paid the check and we proceeded to leave.
The Manager then entered into a conversation with my husband, in an attempt to correct the situation. But at no time did the words “we are sorry” leave his mouth. It was all about what can we do to make it right, but this was a situation where he chose to let the situation escalate and there is no making it right.
I WILL NEVER RETURN to this restaurant and will ensure that all of my friends that frequent this restaurant are aware of this behavior.

Family gathering from out of town. Host was very accommodating especially since there were a few last minute add-ons to the table. Food was very good but they brought out the small plates (appetizers) separately which didn’t work for a table of nine people.

Overall, very good and highly recommended.

Ethos-Gallery is a casual, friendly Greek restaurant featuring seafood. Our Greek salad was fresh and generous. The prawns were huge, nicely presented, with a side of spinach. Service was attentive without being overly cloying. The noise level was significant but we could hear each other without too much effort. I would definitely recommend.

Ethos was wonderful! I went for a first date here. The food was exceptionally fresh and cooked to perfection. We got the turbot fish for 2 people and it was incredible. The restaurant is very nice inside and has a great ambiance. Also great for special occassions- they play lively music and bring a sparkler out and the entire restaurant claps. I loved it and will definitely be back.
