Swordfish special was the best I've ever had, otherwise restaurant in all categories was just fair. We were seated in back corner because we were a table of 5 with absolutely no ambiance. Greek salad was all tomatoes. drinks were nothing special and expensive at $19 each. I ordered bourbon and they had neither Makers Mark or Buffalo Trace. Many much better Greek inspired restaurants in Manhattan and the only way they might make it is because of Emeril's name associated with it.
THe cuisine was top notch, super delicious, can’t wait to go back again.
Food was spectacular. Service too. Thank you!
We had three appetizers that were amazing. They were all so flavorful but just right; not too much. We also shared a Greek salad and the tomatoes in it especially were fantastic. We then split the fish filet for two which was superb. The service was great as well. Fantastic evening.
If you are expecting the typical amazing Greek food…it’s a No, the food is nouveau cuisine for sure. The place is beautiful and in my opinion very elegant. The service was very good overall. The food I must say didn’t cut it for me, it’s overpriced and just OK. The baklava was simply awful.
They really need to bring the “Greek” back and try to create more traditional dishes with less sauce and more flavor. Overall I was disappointed and not going back.
The food was excellent; we had the gumbo, barbecued shrimp, wilted spinach salad, brussel sprouts and gigante beans. I thought the gumbo and shrimp were standouts; my wife agreed on the gumbo, but preferred the salad and brussel sprouts. We agreed that the gigante beans were good, but typical.
Here's my reason for the four stars: the service was very accommodating and pleasant, but we were there for Valentine's Day, so the place was hectic for the obvious reason. Still, the staff was essentially power-walking throughout the restaurant, and their rushing seemed manic, so it was pretty distracting. I witnessed one waiter hard-bump another out of the way, and a bunch of near misses. I appreciate the restaurant striving for efficient service, but taking a couple of more seconds from the kitchen to the tables would provide a much calmer dining experience,.
First and last time we will go here. Not what was expected from Emeril. Food was unexceptional. Octopus beignet’s where mushy, tasteless fritters, duck was dry and salty. The bbq shrimp appetizer was just ok and the fish special was ok. The special rice side was plain, over priced and had no taste. It tasted like something out of a box. The tables were cramped next to each other like in a diner. The wait staff was well meaning but unprofessionally informal , untrained and didn’t seem to mesh with each other. Disappointed...
Service was great. We had the Greek salad and fish for starters. The Greek salad was great. For mains we had the branzino and lamb chops. The branzino was a bit dry and didn’t have great flavour, we had to ask for a bunch of lemons to add some flavour. The lamb chops were over cooked and didn’t have any sort of flavour, for $42 you only get two small lamb chops. We ate a side of lemon potatoes which were good. The waiters brought complimentary desert over and the chocolate mouse was delicious! Overall I wouldn’t go back but if I did I would only get the Greek salad and chocolate mouse.
While open table allowed booking for 1pm we found out at arrival that the restaurant opens at 6pm.
I had a guest visiting from Europe with tight schedule, so it was a very disappointing unpleasant experience and also extra cost of taking a cab there for nothing.
Our waiter was awesome but the fact that we were sitting by the entrance the entire wait staff was standing there watching us eat ( we had a 10:30 pm reservation so it was empty ) it was a bit awkward for my fiancé and I other wise our waiter was very well trained and very knowledgeable about the menu everything was a punch of flavor but the crispy duck wings was a bit of a let down delicious yet mediocre.
Our first time at Rodos and we will be back , Service was wonderful , our waiter was very knowledgable and very personable . Food was very good , my only complaint was that the duck was a little over done but still very tasty.
I like Greek food and I like Cajun food, however some of the parings don’t work well together. However there are enough positives that make it worth a 4 rating. Hummus and duck are fantastic. However special tuna risotto with harissa sauce is a miss.
First off, the entrance to the restaurant is from the hotel lobby next door which was a little strange. The front doors actually just had an awkward velvet rope in front of them from the inside. The head of house were both dressed a little messy, the suit was wrinkled and the shirt was ill fitting, which is a little off putting to begin with. The waitstaff took 10 minutes to show us a menu and another 10 to take our orders. Another 10 minutes went by and we had to ask another waitstaff to get us our drinks. The food came out rather late too and was not at all special. The duck wings were crispy but had no distinct flavor to them. Basically tasted like a fried wing from a local Chinese spot in my neighborhood, nothing special at all. The stuffed shells was actually a plate of small shells in a cream sauce with small lumps of crawfish. Some of the bits still had shell on them and was not removed. And for the entree, we had ordered the special which was a whole white fish. The fish itself was tasty, but as advertised it was going to be on a bed of fennel. When it got to the table, the fish was garnished with fennel frawns.........confused and disappointed pretty much sums up this place. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone because it is simply over priced, simple food, and not special at all for the price or experience. I’ve had better food and service at many diners off the freeway on road trips. Hopefully, considering this is Emeril’s first NYC restaurant, he can see and compare to the other great places in the city and see everything that his restaurant is not and how the competition blows his business out of the water.
The restaurant has only been open a few weeks, so I understand that they are still tweaking things. I was disappointed with the food. The portions were small and overpriced except for the Lavraki which was delicious and well-sized. The servers were friendly, but unpolished. I canceled my upcoming reservations.
Start to finish was an excellent experience! A very friendly hostess and servers The food was amazing, especially the duck dish, seasoned to perfection! Definitely we will be back
Service and ambiance were great. Food was delicious - eggplant was outstanding and very creative. A welcomed addition to the New York restaurant scene. Not just another Italian place or steak house. It's a combination of Greek, Portuguese and Cajun and it all works together beautifully. Thank you for opening in NYC Emeril!!
I was rather disappointed in the food. The roasted cauliflower was a half a head that was simply boiled-very mushy and over cooked.
The whole artichoke had a ton of oil & vinegar on it and the octopus beignets were very bland.
The keftedes were yummy though.
The servers were nice and tried hard, but definitely need more training. (Bringing cutlery, attentive, etc)
I had high hopes and am planning to give it another try in the future when they hopefully work the kinks out.
Friendly staff , very warm and cozy ..food is delicious the desserts were amazing! Greatly recommend forgot to mention very creative dishes! Had a wonderful experience cant wait to go back! Very exciting to meet Emeril as well!! The only dissapointment to a 9 reservation was they ran out of bronzino!
Had a fantastic birthday dinner at Rodos and even got to meet Emeril!
The food and service was amazing!
We were a family of 4. Tried the octopus beignet’s, crawfish stuffed clams, kefedes and BBQ shrimp. Then boys had burgers and we had duck. Everything was soooo good.
Shared Portuguese custard tart, Greek parfait and chocolate mousse cake for dessert, fantastic!
Welcome to New York Emeril, glad to have you here!
We loved this place! Our party of 4 ordered many of the items from each of the categories offered
and enjoyed every single thing we tasted! From the delicious dips with the best pita, amazing tuna tartare special, to the charred eggplant, the perfectly cooked rib-eye and fish special were among some of the dishes we had. Besides the delicious food, the highlight of the evening was when Emeril himself appeared at our table to say hello early in the meal and afterwards seemed happy to come out of the kitchen to pose for photos with us. He was extremely gracious to do so. We have reservations to go back next month--can't wait!
Best duck I ever had
Food was amazing loved this place
Just opened a few weeks ago. Food was inventive and memorable. Especially adored the grilled eggplant salad (even better if remarkable pita accompanied it rather than add'l $6 charge). Staff needs more training -- setting/removing tableware, bringing bread promptly and without 2 staffers asking if bread was requested, waitstaff not smoking just before taking an order. I hope to return soon with high expectations.
WOW!!! Phenomenal!!! All specs of the dining experience were top notch! Thank you
Hands down, some of the best Greek food I have ever tasted. Welcome Emeril to the Greek culture, he has brought Louisiana to Greece. Highly recommend tasting everything on the menu!!
The food was creative - yet yummy. Still getting the kinks out- the service was poor- no white wines left , kept trying to pour wine when we were still drinking cocktails, served only 3 out of 4 entrees !
I am sure that they will get there but they need some flair !
Excellent food and excellent service.
Great food!! Had a great dinner and service was fantastic!!
Although expensive worth every penny. Service was perfect. Food was incredible. Drinks were sublime. Great for a special occasion.
Cajun + Greek = Grejun
Food is superb, with NOLA influenced Greek food.
Emeril has put together a great combination of Greek and Louisiana food.
Everything we tasted was delicious. The
Service was attentive
Emeril and his staff were fabulous, as was the food both nights we ate at the restaurant. They made suggestions based on our parameters that were spot-on.
Wow. Emeril Bammed it out of the park! It was Greek Fare with a kick; the fusion of Greek/Mediterranean cuisine with his Cajun fare was amazing:
The stuffed clams with craw fish; the pasta with craw fish; the twist on the authentic spreads with the house baked pita bread; and whoever would have imagined the octopus beignets. The branzino was perfected grilled and season.Looking forward of going back to try the rest of the menu
Every dish was delicious. We almost walked out though due to no heat, an unwelcoming overwhelmed hostess, a shaking table. We started with barbecue shrimp in a wonderful sauce, and baked eggplant. Could have licked the plate. No bread was served so we couldn’t sop up the sauce. The branzino was seasoned and cooked well. The crispy Brussels sprouts were so tasty my husband ate them with relish and he hates Brussels sprouts.
A lot of kinks to be worked out in the space and with the staff but the food is worth any minor inconveniences. Who needs New Orleans with this excellent restaurant in nyc now.
Trouble with the heating system. To cold! Otherwise, very good!
Emeril comes to New York but left his cuisine, level of service and atmosphere at home in New Orleans. A sad debut for one of America’s most beloved chefs. If his name were more visible in the restaurant you would think this was merely a licensing deal for him, but there simply must be something more to a deal that has Emeril associating himself with a restaurant in which one of the signature drinks is still served in a mug bearing the name of the restaurant that previously inhabited this random hotel’s first floor Courtyard Marriott looking space (Shay & Ivy).
The ambiance was pleasant, service was relatively attentive and presentations were attractive, but the food was either bland or over-spiced. The bread was delicious.
The branzino and chicken is delicious as well as the Greek salad.
Very much enjoyed the creative takes on Greek and Cajun food at this new spot. Bartender and servers were friendly and very much aware that they need to work out some kinks, given that the restaurant opened only recently. Would surely go again if I were in the neighborhood.
