You can tell a lot about a restaurant by the salad course. At Athos, this is very special. Everything thing matches the level of freshness I would put on my own table. The bonus is that Athos has interesting salad extras. From that point on, everything is great. Dessert...yum! (Hey, I started with salad!) I also like the waitstaff. They... More

This was our first time dining at Athos, and we were very pleased. Good food and service and Larz at the bar was especially nice. Very good Greek food and wine.

Jay, our server gave us perfect help and service. The food was exceptional in taste and presentation. The seafood kebab was delicious, but the highlight was the lamb chops. We weren't disappointed. The staff were very friendly.

Based upon Tripadvisor my family and I were expecting a good meal and an enjoyable evening; unfortunately we were very disappointed. When we entered the restaurant it was nearly empty; we were the third table occupied. My wife, son and I ordered a delicious salad and from there the experience deteriorated. The egg plant appetizer was mushy and rather tasteless.... More

We had a wonderful date night this Saturday. The bar area is intimate and our waiter Nick was knowledgable and professional. The grilled octopus was spot on and was accompanied by wonderful marinated carrots, onions and cauliflower. This was followed by a gratis roasted pepper and olive oil dipping sauce with loads of aromatic pita bread. The evening fresh fish... More

The atmosphere is very nice, with an attractive slide show of photos from Greece above the bar. The waiter was very solicitous. He brought me tastes of two different wines, so I could choose one. We split an Athos salad which was very tasty and more than enough for two people. I had two appetizers: spanakopita and stuffed baby eggplant.... More

We enjoyed the zucchini chips w/ a delicious spread (a touch of horseradish) and the baked stuffed eggplant for appetizers. Our entrees included the Macedonian Lamb, Veal Corfu, and Shrimp Grekolimano. There is a wide variety of Greek wines available and our choices accompanied our meals nicely. Actually, when you walk from the hostess podium to the dining room, the... More
