Unattentive waiter. Less than 30% capacity but yet food took long both appetizer and entree.

Received our dessert waited for a description of what was being served but even that took too long so we just tried what we thought was appealing.

The bill was the fastest part of the entire service and even for that I had to get up and hand it to the waiter. Never under tipped before until day.

Sadly Won’t be going back.

Ambiance is 5 star.

6pm reservation not a busy hour for the restaurant specially not on a monday l, had to call the server over 2 times to order more drinks, had to pour my own bottle after the tasting part, at the end of the day it’s only beneficial for the restaurant with a higher PPA and a bigger tip as well for server. Thanks anyways

I enjoyed myself. The key lime martini was great. I also enjoyed the ambience. I wish they had valet parking, it'd be a little more convenient. Other than that, great service and staff.

Overall, disappointing experience.
Food - hummus spread sampler was great (forgot to give pita bread though, took a while to get waitresses attention). Main dishes were not enjoyable, very disappointing. Lobster Pasta was very bland and lobster was tough. Seafood & Orzo was the same.
Service - Took a while for everything, even to pay. Waitress was nice however, explained they were overwhelmed.
Ambiance - Great view.

I took my husband there for his birthday dinner treat and I must say I was impressed with the lovely view of the city while dining on the waters!
We are seafood lovers so we ordered the broiled stuff lobsters with lemon potatoes & spinach! The only thing is that the crab meat and lobsters could have more seasoning as it was a bit too bland, but over all everything was good! Will go back there for sure!!
Thanks to Leslie for getting me a nice window seating, she was very sweet and kind. The ladies rooms needs attention, the smell was horrible! Needs to be addressed.
Dessert was a blast! Thank you!

Decided to try Molos to celebrate my birthday. Made reservations 2 weeks out on Open Table. Since covid there is a 90 minute stay limit. You have a 15 minute grace to get your table. Sad you can't go and sit at the bar (period). Got probably the worse table upstairs. Service is prompt. Too prompt because time is ticking so you feel rushed. We ordered s bottle of wine on the wine menu and it said 2016. The waiter brought out a 2018. Made a comment that we wanted the 2016 and he returned with the 2016. To start they give you bread and hummus and olives. (YUM) We ordered the bluepoint oysters. The oysters were the highlight for me. They came with 2 different sauces that made Molos stand out. Then we ordered the octopus. The presentation lacked really for everything. It was cut up in bite quarter sizes. Would have liked to see it whole. Plus, it was a little too salty. For our entree, we ordered the tuna and the lobster tail, scallops, shrimp, mussels and orzo. The menu lacked what I thought I was going to get because there is no definitions. The seafood dish was good but, I would not order it again. The tuna was rare but dry so it wasn't impressive either. We ended with the baklava. Tasted like they got it from Sam's club. All in all spending $250.00. Think if I come back, it will be after covid and when you can sit at the bar. I'll just order the oyster.

Amazing! Went here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, the view was to die for! Our waiter was amazing and super attentive. We tried the crab stuffed lobster which was the house special of the night, and the lamb chops. Everything was fresh and fulfilling. Would definitely go again. COVID restrictions are in order tables are spaced out properly!

My husband brought me here for my birthday lunch last Sunday with my family and it was a lovely experience all around. Their service was excellent and on point. Everyone enjoyed the food overall although I thought the shrimp in the seafood risotto was a bit rubbery and over cooked. The octopus appetizer was really nice. Raw clams and oysters were fresh and yummy. The rib eye, Hawaiian tuna, lamb chops were all very good.
(Clean plates all around). My lavraki was delicious even the day after. The view of the city of course was amazing. My family raved and said would come back again. We all had a wonderful time! We will be back.

1. open table links the wrong address to Maps and we went to the wrong place
2. Molos skipped a full course and never fixed it
3. Had to wait 45+ minutes for a check as the wait staff and manager argued about what to do forever
4. Still had to pay for the meal I didn’t receive as advertised, was only comped for drinks, even though the waiter said they wouldn’t charge for the meal

Do Not Go Here.

The location of the restaurant (on the water with an amazing view of the city), the very friendly and professional service and ambiance where all shattered by the quality of the food.
We ordered the seafood platter. All of the seafood in this platter was dull flavored and very far from fresh. We also ordered the goat cheese platter. Its a simple salad that is very hard to mess up. Yet the chef managed to so by turning the goat cheese into a dry, bitter sauce and ruining the plate. Next item was the Hawaiian tuna... we asked for it to be well done and I think the chef probably got upset and send us a piece of log with crusted sided. The couscous that came with the was descent. Finally we ordered the Lobster orzo.. It was flavorless no seafood taste to it. It tasted like tomato soup!!
I really think that if they would put more effort in fixing their menu and quality of their food they would have a killer business!

I was extremely disappointed with the food . I was really hoping for something great . The night began with unavailability of draft beer . For such an upscale Reasturant you would think they would have all of the machines in working order .

We started with oysters & grilled octopus . The oysters were not up to par . The octopus although cooked properly it was tasteless . I had the prawn meal with side of veggies and my boyfriend had the lobster pasta . My shrimp was so salty and the smell of fish was such a turn off . I understand that it is seafood , but good seafood should never give off the smell of fish ( not like we are sitting in the kitchen where it was prepared) . The lobster pasta had no flavor , they keep the shell on the dish for presentation. Little to no bits of lobster in the pasta .

Over all I hate to give a review like this during covid times . I really hope they can step it up . The ambiance is great but that is all that is good here . The pricing does not justify what comes out on plate .
