This is a favorite of my friends and we crave this food-even after going to Greece! Some favorites are: all the salads (where do they find such beautiful tomatoes?)meatballs, grilled octopus and calamari, and all the fish. Still love it and can't wait to go back soon!

This authentically fresh Greek restaurant is a pleasure to dine in, as it is so reminiscent of Greece. Even the sidewalk cafe was out there, though too cold now in NY. Highly recommended for food quality, service and ambience.

Top notch greek restaurant with a wide selection of small plates and entrees. Small plates are quite generous. Especially good for seafood. Octopus and stuffed grape leaves were outstanding. Atmosphere was very comfortable with a relatively young and lively crowd.

The quality of their fish is top notch, and in recent months, we have become regulars here. With that said, my wife loves this place, but I always feel a bit apprehensive dining here. It is always crowded and the tables are too close together, which makes me feel cramped, especially when waiters and busboys continuously bump into me throughout my meal.

While it is a credit to the restaurant that they are always busy, I truly believe that if they removed just a single table to make more space, it would be a more enjoyable dining experience for everyone.

The tuna special was perfectly prepared. The tuna was so fresh and flavorful. The portion size was large and included steamed veggies. For a starter we had the Ethos chips, simply delicious. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Can't wait to go back.

Best octopus in NY - so tender and perfectly prepared. The bronzini is always a treat. My favorite Greek restaurant outside of Greece. Our server Naoni was great. Its nice to have Greek staff in a Greek restaurant. If you speak a little Greek you'll feel right at home and if you don't they know the food and wine because they grew up with it so you'll have a great experience

Good restaurant in many ways, but very loud. The food and service is great, but the music is loud (and louder for celebrations)... But also the acoustics need work to tamp down the decibel levels. Not the place to go to if you want to have easy conversation across the table.

Never a bad experience here. The wait staff are professional, helpful, friendly and engaging. The ambience and music is more "breezy Southampton" than Midtown. The food is excellent. I had the Langostinos which were perfectly seasoned and prepared, as always.

This is hands-down one of our absolute favorite neighborhood restaurants. ETHOS is always a good call

Ethos Gallery 51 is a neighborhood favorite. I live near the United Nations and last week was the U.N. General Assembly. I was a little nervous about scheduling a business dinner in the middle of the UN traffic mess, but the Ethos team made it easy.

My colleagues finished their meetings a bit early and arrived nearly an hour before our reservation. Not a problem for Archie and George. They seated my friends at a prime table, knowing that they would not be ordering dinner for some time.

Colleagues for Sweden, Kenya and Uruguay at the table and everyone agreed that all of the food was fabulous and authentic. Where do you find these amazing tomatoes? Best Greek Salad on the planet. The place was electric - on a Tuesday night! We are all looking forward to the next time everyone is in town and we will definitely have dinner at Ethos!
