I love this place! This was one of the best services I've ever received from a waitress and I cannot wait to go back. She was super courteous, friendly, helpful and always on hand when we needed her. She explained the menu to us, told us about the specials and gave us her own recommendations. She also allowed us to chill after the spot closed in the outdoor space, while they counted their money for the night and offered to take our pictures...everything was just great with her. Aside from that, the ambiance was great, and the decor was amazing. The outdoors lights are perfect for picture taking, the inside is beautiful as well, even down to the furniture. There's flowers on the wall which lends to set the scenery as well. When it comes to the menu, the chicken options were great, the dessert was also great and both their shrimp appetizer and grilled octopus were delicious. The only thing I did not find that good were the lamb chops, and it might be because I was not asked if I wanted it well-done so it came back a bit under cooked. That is the only gripe I have with this place, but other than that I will rate it as high as I can and I look forward to going back.

Food was great. Server kept pushing the specials tho which was sort of annoying. Prices a bit steep tho. Was $370 for 3 of us.

The food here was delicious. The warm pita was our favorite part of the meal! The lamb chops were tasty, but a smaller portion than we were expecting.

Very disappointing, especially since I have had only good experiences at their other location. Outside seating only, as inside is used for coworking space. Staff soes not have their act together. Neither does the kitchen. All in all a big disappointment

We loved it! My boyfriend is of Greek decent, and he said some of the dishes reminded him of his grandmothers cooking. Great ingredients, great cocktails, amazing service!

Needed a place near the office to meet a friend for dinner so googled restaurants in area. Pick Mykonos for location and greek food. Exceeded my expectations. Everything we ordered was outstanding. Definitely will be back.

We had a little Sweet 16 party for my daughter here. The atmosphere was great and very friendly. We had almost the whole restaurant to ourselves. The owner Dimitris suggested that since he knew his menu the best he might do the ‘family style’ and suggested the best dishes. The guests were excited about this idea. The food turned out to be the best Greek food I’ve ever tasted. There was such a variety; it was cooked and served with love and enthusiasm and prepared from fresh and very tasteful ingredients. I LOVE Greek food now! Thanks to the Mykonos Blue Grill!! I felt a personalized touch in everything! It was truly an unforgettable experience. When the owner figured out that I had a dairy allergy, he went off the menu to serve grilled Halloumi cheese with tomato, which was super delicious! Thank you Dimitris – you made the party an event which we will never forget!!! We’ll definitely be back soon :)

We are moving our office to the building across the street, saw the outdoor seating, so figured we'd give this a try for a business meeting. Until this meal we had yet to find an outstanding Greek restaurant in NYC. This was truly outstanding. First, the owner introduced himself and treated us like family, and made suggestions from the menu, adding which were his own personal/family recipes. Each and every dish was so fresh and tasty- it's apparent he prides himself on sourcing only the freshest ingredients, and preparing them in a very simple yet special way. Calamari was super fresh, tender, lightly fried. Octopus said sushi grade on the menu and certainly tasted that way, also prepared simple and cooked perfectly. Greek salad was also simple, fresh, and tasty. Baked feta was a must, as was the meat pie (this seemed to be his specialty), and also the eggplant with feta. Dessert (walnut cake and chocolate cookies) was also super fresh, light, and delicious. Embarrassed to say this was for only 3 of us- we just kept ordering. As the owner promised, dishes were not typical for Greek restaurants, also light so you don't even feel bloated afterwards (even after all that we ate!). Outdoor ambience was very pleasant, nice setting, feels like being on vacation. We are so excited to have this place right next to our new office, will definitely make it a point to come back often.

Unfortunately the rooftop restaurant was booked for a special event so we had to eat in the lobby restaurant.
Not as pretty but the food was delicious and the service excellent.

Service was exceptional, and above par. The waiters were all friendly and manager was a joy to get to know. He was extremely passionate about his food, and gave us great recommendations. We all had a meat platter with salad and extra sides. Not only did we get to experience the food, but its authenticity and rich culture. Top that off with free shots from the manager himself.

Service A+ and Food A

The reservation was for May 7 at noon. It became apparent that they were not open, so we spoke to our hotel manager who made arrangements at a different restaurant. The Mykonos did not open until 5. Apparently, Open Table had the wrong information. We were meeting another couple for lunch who were coming in from New Jersey, so we were concerned. Nevertheless, my husband and I decided to try it later for dinner. Not a good idea! As it is a Greek restaurant, there were items on the menu that we wanted to try. They had a red wine from Greece, and a beer also from Greece, Neither one was available. We then ordered Gyro Empanadas - what can I say - they didn't have them either. The server did not seem concerned, and spent time talking with other servers. We were the only ones in the restaurant at that time, so it was not that they were busy. All in all, it was a huge disappointment, and we would certainly not recommend this restaurant.

I had high expectations for this restaurant. The manager attempted his best to appease the group; however, his efforts failed. The service was slow, things were forgotten, the entrees were not enjoyable, and overall it was an unpleasant experience.
