We come here almost every other week and with their special priced meals --it is very affordable in a very elegant dining atmosphere. My wife and I had been to Greece -- food here is even better. We love their appetizers. Excellent and attentive service.

Our meals were perfect and our waiter, Kevin, was most professional in his service. I had the bronzini that was filleted at the table - and it was completely boneless! and delicious. Kevin heard us toast to each other and at the end of the meal, he brought over a complimentary dessert for our anniversary - which was also delicious!

I came to Athos recently for a late lunch. The food was fabulous. It was the best seafood I've had in the Albany area. My server Kevin was knowledgeable and attentive. The presentation was fantastic (definitely get the flaming cheese appetizer). A little expensive, but worth the cost. I will be going back!

Our party of 7 had drinks first, then salads and appetizers, then entrees followed by dessert. Highlights included: a delightful pear martini; crisp, delicious salads; flavorful meatballs; garlicky, briny steamed mussels; tasty grilled whole fish; tender, perfectly... More
