5th or 6th visit to Athos. The food is consistently delicious. The service is highly attentive but not intrusive Tonight's waiter, Kevin, provided excellent recommendations for food and drink.

Athos has been a favorite for a long time (we live in Albany), and my husband and I are never disappointed. He's recently become gluten-free, and to our surprise they have many options for him. The appetizers are scrumptious (grape leaves are my favorite) and the salads are divine--just the right amount of dressing. My husband loves the grilled fish... More

Athos is one of my favorite restaurants in the capital region. Authentic Greek food and friendly service. I have eaten on many a Greek island, and the food at Athos surpasses them all. Fresh fish on the grill, awesome appetizers, and the baklava martini for dessert is to die for. When you enter, you are welcomed with a big smile,... More

I highly recommend Athos Restaurant for their impeccable service, food, dining facility, terrific staff and so much more! Recently we were to hold a hold a graduation dinner party for 14 people at another restaurant. Although we had been planning this for over a month, due to unforeseen circumstances, it didn't work out. With only hours to figure out a... More

Hand's down, you will never be disappointed with Athos! Food and atmosphere are top notch, and we take all our out of town guests here. Their menu offers a great diversity of small plates and appetizers to large, amazing classic Greek meals. They also have excellent gluten free offerings including fried calamari that our GF friends still rave about! Be... More

On two recent occasions I wanted a nice restaurant for out-of-town visitors. The Athos hit the spot with two excellent meals. My dining partners and I loved the calamari appetizers -- crispy and tasty -- the wonderful avgolemono (egg-lemon) soup, the excellent fresh fish of the day, the salads, the wine ... Our visitors from the UK were duly impressed... More

Wow is all I can say. The food, drink and service at Athos is outstanding! Our party of four each enjoyed different entrees. No one was disappointed. My favorite was the fresh Branzino Fish. My husband loved the lamb Youvetsi. Athos has a large selection of local craft beers, Greek wines and one of the best cosmos I have ever... More

Be sure to check out the glass floor that looks don into the cellar. Pretty cool. Authentic Greek cuisine and nice roomy seating. Prices are a bit steep for dinner but the bar menu is reasonable if you stop for a snack. Located right on Route 20 in Guilderland so close to everywhere. Everything my spouse and I had including...

very nice place with good choice and excellent fish choices and a good selection of Greek wines. Dips with Pita bread were really nice, and all of our party enjoyed everything served.
