Athos was voted one of the 100 Best Greek Restaurants in America by The National Herald. Casually elegant, Athos serves only the very freshest seasonal ingredients, lovingly brought together using time-honored recipes and techniques, like clay pot cooking, and whole fresh fish-filleted table-side.

This was fantastic. I was on a business trip and our host invited me to dinner at this restaurant. After going through the menu I came across a seafood dish that looked interesting. Not recognizing the variety I asked the waiter who proceeded to provide the details, which I found intriguing enough to take a chance and order it. His... More

We stopped here during a drive from Boston to Rochester. Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere. Service was excellent (Jay was our server). The salads were great (one of us prefers slightly less salad dressing). The appetizer was a baked eggplant dish and was delicious. One of us had the Artic Char from fixed price menu and it was prepared perfectly. Another... More

Made reservations for a Saturday night at 6pm. Walked in and seated immediately. Server was fantastic. She was without a doubt a perfect server. Food was perfect in everyway. Try the Saganaki. It is great. Looking forward to returning here again.

The service at this place is great. Everyone is really willing to serve you when you arrive. The ambiance at this place is also top notch. The food was O.K. and to me it was a little too pricey. I think that this is definitely a place to try. For me it was a little pricey for O.K. food but... More

First time going to this restaurant for a special occasion. Heard nothing but good things and checked reviews on Trip Advisor to prepare for the visit! Table was ready for our party and order some drinks that were served in a timely manner and were mixed perfectly. After perusing the menu it was decided that a selection of appetizers should...

We dine here nearly every week because this place is consistently excellent. They greet you with an enthusiastic smile, offer to take your coat, and seat you according to preferences. This white tablecloth restaurant has it all-ambiance, cuisine and service. More often than not we see one of the owners touching tables and checking in with customers. The servers know... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Having Charlie guide us through the menu and assist with recommendations, was wonderful. We'll be back to sample other menu options soon.
