If you are a lover of fresh, whole grilled fish, Athos is an unexpected treat! As tantalizing as all the Greek specialties are,the array of whole fish is hard to pass up. Definitely a spot for a healthy, Mediterranean dinner. Lovely wines and atmosphere. This is a local winner.

I reserved online which I find to be convenient but most of all the food was delicious from soup and salad to the lamb, ham, white fish, and chicken breasts to dessert. The scalloped potatoes and the Mediterranean veggies were delicious. Athos so knows what they are doing. Service was excellent. Also, our daughter who lives in Albany now has... More

My parents, 2 sisters, and I (party of 5 adults) went to Athos for Easter dinner. We opted for the buffet and were not disappointed. Everything that I sampled was excellent. The Greek salad had some of the best feta I've ever tasted, and plenty of olives. Other highlights included the cream of asparagus soup, baked white fish with lemon-dill... More

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
