Usually everything is great, but our server was Only attentive to one guest. Asked only 1 person if they wanted something to drink and when that person ordered, the server disappeared even before asking the other guest if he would like a drink..... it was awkward

Love! What can I say? Phenomenal and authentic Greek experience in middle of NYC! The food is delicious, the service is warm and fun, the environment simply makes you want to fly to Greece right this second. I had my friends mini reception there and it was a perfect experience. The manager and staff made the experience truly special for the happy couple. You can't go wrong with this spot if you are celebrating anything or simply want to enjoy the warmth of Greek hospitality!

A friend who lives in this East Side Midtown neighborhood highly recommended this spot. We hosted friends from Barcelona here and it was lovely. I can't say enough about the service and ambiance. We were tended to continuously in a good way. Mostly the food was fabulous (albeit pricey because it was fresh seafood); one fish dish was rather bland. However, everything else--another fish dish, langoustinos, a veal chop, greek salad and appetizers were tasty and high quality. We were seated in a comfy and spacious booth and treated to a sparkler with a complimentary dessert to finish off our meal. A find for Midtown NYC. We'll be back!

Went for Valentine's Day with my wife and mother and we had a great time. Very friendly service in a lively environment, and the food is excellent! On the way out, they gave both women beautiful long stemmed red roses from a huge vase, it was a wonderful final touch. We will be back.

My family and I love Ethos Gallery and go there whenever we feel there is something worth celebrating ( we’ll also go there without any special reason when we just want to eat great, fresh seafood) . This time it was with my 2 daughters and nephew, celebrating my leaving NY for vacation.
We started with cocktails and a plate of Ethos Chips, one of our favorites. Then on to grilled octopus and fried calamari. We could have stopped there, but no way, the best was still to come.
On to our main courses. One person had whole Bronzino, one had lamb shank, one had scallop appetizer as main course, and I had my usual , my favorite , what I think is one of the best pasta dishes in NY , the Aegean Sea Pasta Classic with Langoustines (normally served with lobster over pasta) . OMG it is to die for. Every thing we ordered was prepared and presented perfectly.
We were ready to be rolled out.
WAIT!!! You can’t leave before the amazingly delicious complimentary Chocolate Mousse & Semolina Pastry dessert . We didn’t.
This was a typical Ethos Gallery experience , relaxed, comfortable, wonderful food , and, oh yes, almost forgot , terrific , attentive and friendly service. A great staff.
Ethos Gallery has been A+ 5 star every time we’ve been there.

I've been to this restaurant multiple times. Their food is always great. But this time our server at lunch doesn't look too friendly, he doesn't have a single smile on his face and appeared to be not patient when I asked him two questions on lunch menu. I'll be back to this restaurant later but I hope this server no longer works there!

Ok place for our first time here. Very busy, crowded and noisy. White decor is a nice change. Appetizer of Greek salad was very nice for two. The eggplant Dinner was literally 50% onions, and disappointing. Sides of any kind are an extra $7, making most dinners in the $45-55 per person. The sea bass was fine, just not hot enough. Figure $455- $60 pp with one drink and a main course.
