Let me tell you, you would've thought I bribed these people. They greeted me and my party by name at the door with warmth and courtesy. Our waiter made certain we had no questions and was great and accommodating our meal requests and substitutions. The entire staff run like a pit crew and are very attentive. The food was divine and well worth the price.
The cherry on top is that I made my reservation as a birthday celebration for a friend and it was only specified online - they checked in with the birthday girl and she denied it! But they stuck to their guns and stayed true to my reservation and suprised us all in the best way. If you're planning a special get together or you just want a cozy Greek getaway on the UES then you need to go to Ethos... Now.

My mom and I had a terrific late lunch at Ethos Gallery 51 last week. Prix Fixe Lunch was a great value. The greek spreads and a salad were perfect first course. I had sword fish perfectly done and my mom had a delicious moussaka. Just right pastry with coffee for dessert was a nice finish. Service was efficient and pleasant. The room is bright and elegantly casual. We will definitely return.

It was a totally successful dining experience from beginning to end. We felt welcome from the time we entered to our waiting table right up to our departure with a strong sincere request to return. Thomas our server was attentive to our unique ordering process -- i.e. drinks, apps, drinks and more apps then dinner. The menu provided a choice for everyone from apps to entree --- never felt rushed or neglected even with a late arriving guest -- just a HR from attitude / and apps to departure and desert --- They have it together -- came highly recommended but despite that exceeded our expectations ---

This is a great restaurant for younger people. It was buzzing with fun activity but way too noise for us older people who could not have a conversation at a table of four at dinner. I’ve been for lunch and loved it, so we were unprepared for such a noisy experience. Delicious food, but we’ll never return for dinner.

It was a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was hopping. I was dining with my husband and son. We shared the fried calamari and ethos chips for appetizers. Dinner for me was the tuna which is sushi grade and so delicious. My husband had the dorado and my son the salmon,both throughly enjoyed their dinner. We were lucky to have a birthday celebration occur while we were enjoying our dinner. A festive experience that’s even better when its for you.

The food at Ethos is consistently delicious and the service is outstanding. I made a reservation for 8 people for my father's 70th birthday dinner... he's in a wheelchair, and all of the staff - from the person who took my reservation over the phone to the manager to our primary waiter and all of the servers - were so wonderful and accommodating throughout our entire meal. Thank you so much for making this a truly exceptional night to remember.

My first time — and it was absolutely perfect. I can’t believe Ethos is 3 blocks from my home yet I’ve never been before. I’ll be back soon and often! Stellar octopus, terrific grilled lobster, amazing spanakopita. Can’t wait to try the entire menu. Service was flawless.

We were greeted by the host with a smile and "You must be John. Welcome to Ethos!" Our reservation was for 5:45pm dinner to celebrate my mother's birthday. We were seated immediately! The staff was incredibly friendly and professional. I left a note regarding the dinner's occasion and they surprised the table by dimming the lights, setting a sparkling candle, playing a Greek Birthday song, getting the restaurant to clap in, and giving us a dessert.

Food was fantastic. Relatively pricey but definitely worth it. Fresh seafood and authentic cuisine.
I will definitely be back here!
