I think this is a great restaurant. My only complaint is that it is VERY loud. Hard to hold a conversation, and makes a business discussion challenging. I want to be clear, this is a great restaurant. Food was outstanding, as was the service. If you are going there to have an intimate dinner, it will be a challenge. Hope this helps.

Have been going to Milos for 20 years. Food is always excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. It is quite expensive. The price fixed option is very reasonable and includes an excellent selection. We like to go there before the theater so we don’t have to eat in the theater district.

I went for my graduation and I am glad I did. The food is great, the service even better. It’s an expensive restaurant, but is worth your money.

Excellent Greek-Mediterranean food. We have tasted sea food. Octopus delicious. Fish also. They have a lunch menu affordable compared to similar restaurants in NYC. Definitely recommended.

server was terrible, it took forever for him to come over to the table, when he arrived he asked if we wanted dessert and we had not yet even received menus! the table next to us was seated 30 minutes after us and they had the dessert portion brought out at the same time as us. When we were ready to pay the server tried to take the payment holder before we even had a chance to sign it. food was outstanding but we were in a table next to the kitchen and water station so my chair was bumped by servers the entire time. Also, they gave us sparking water without asking if we had a preference between still and sparkling. When I asked for still he put the still water on top of the sparking. We were having a work week lunch that should have taken 45 minutes (we ordered from the 3 course menu- not anything special ordered) and we were there 1.5 hours! awful.

We were celebrating our 44th Wedding Anniversary. Our children surprised us with dessert... which they had prepaid.. the waiter did not mention it at all . We only knew when our son Rohit Rao called us from Houston that night.
Food was too rushed, waiter and waitress must have had a lot more tables and subsequently did not serve well. We did not enjoy the evening ... very disappointed... should be reimbursed. We were at your restaurant in Miami in March and the service, ambience etc was thoroughly enjoyable.

All was superb, as usual. We enjoy ALL -- the spreads, the beet salad, the greek potatoes with olive oil and fresh oregano, the roasted peppers, the Madagascar prawns, the Arctic char, the soft shell crab, the tomato salad, the feta, the toasted pita, the fresh fruit, the Greek yoghurt with honey, the champagne, the coffee, the chamomile tea. Cost a fortune, and worth every cent.

We went to Milos pre theatre for a Saturday lunch and it could not have been better. The food was fresh and well prepared and the wait staff was impeccable. We arrived at 11:30, finished at about 1-never felt that the service was slow or rushed.

I really like Milos and go often. This was not a good experience.

Let me disclose I am from a family of restauranteurs and a former server, so I am very empathetic to restaurant uncertainties. Despite having reservations for 2 recent visits, I was not seated at my table until 20 minutes after my reservation times.

The server greeted me and said she would get back to me. I never saw her again until after my food was served. However, another server hustled to get me water and, 10 minutes after I was seated, a chef was sent out to take my order, which I appreciated. A hallmark of Milos is their attention to guests. When wait times are long or orders are errant, a manager and/or chef always visits the table. This is first-rate service from a first-rate operation and why I will always recommend Milos. It is impossible to be perfect all the time

I asked what fish was available for one as I was dining solo, as I do here as a regular business traveler to NYC. Apparently, only one was available and I ordered it. The fish was average and not up to Milos standards. Worse, I found out when I received the bill that its price $75. Yes, $75 for one serving. I love great good and am happy to pay for it. However, that is a market price for a SINGLE entree that needs to be disclosed to guests. This was disappointing and the reasons I am (1) marking value "poor," (2) marking service "fair," and (3) writing this review.

PROS
*Grilled vegetables a perfect 10.
*Reception team was excellent, hustling & attentive.
*Sending out a chef to take my order when the server was unavailable. I believe the busser was the one who addressed this issue and I wish I had gotten his name. Thank you.
*Follow-up service & quality checks from busser and chef.

CONS
*No service from server except a quality check after entree served.
*Late seat & table visit.
*Order placed 35-40 minutes after my reservation.
*Fish preparation not up to Milos standards.
*High price of fish not disclosed.

Had a horrible experience at a “Greek” restaurant earlier this week and was craving true Greek food like what your yiayia would make. Found this place and it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in, everyone was so nice and accommodating especially with a wheelchair. The service was on point, and the food was authentic Greek cuisine. We ordered the Greek salad (which was more village style), with fresh ingredients. We then ordered the lamp chops with Greek potatoes. You could instantly smell the Oregon that is prominent in Greek food.

We ended with dessert and I felt transported back to when my yiayia used to bake. This review is cheesy, but I love when food takes you places. I highly recommend as your Greek place!

Love the food at Milos! Fresh fish is prepared perfectly and everything else we had was delicious. Try the zucchini chips appetizer.
Noise level is very high and it took 45 minutes to get seated with our 8:30 reservation. No apologies were made and we had to keep asking the desk. This is a major flaw for such a great restaurant.
