This is a top choice for places for authentic and good food in Albany. I recommend it to whomever enjoys tasty and fine Greek cuisine.
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.
From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, a wonderful experience. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Are waitress cheerfully answered all of our questions and explained various dishes which we were unfamiliar with. The wine see suggested was exceptional! Going to try to find a case of it! The food was incredible! I had only... 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
