Simply Greek!

We had an amazing meal here in the wonderful setting. My partner ordered the tzatziki and the chicken souvlaki and I ordered the beetroot salad and the swordfish souvlaki. Both dishes were amazingly tender and cooked to perfection. This restaurant is a must visit!

Based on TripAdvisor ranking we had dinner here and were happy we did. My wife said it was the best Greek salad she ever had. She also tried the Bronzini Mediterranean sea bass and enjoyed it very much. I had the chicken lemon soup - loved it - ask for and got a note from the chef about how it... More

We had a wonderful 1st experience at Athos Saturday 8/22 at 6:30 PM - greeted by friendly hostess, restaurant was bustling, but everyone seemed to be in a good mood & high spirits - they sat us in a private room (7 of us), which was fantastic. Our waiter, Max couldn't have been more enjoyable... Drinks & food came out... More

I went there for dinner with my Regional VP. We sat right down and were immediately greeting and ordered drinks. We order the special for the night which was $25 and included choice of salad, main entree and desert. We both had the grilled Mahi Mahi which was fantastic. I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant and will take other customers... More

This faboulous restaurant has great food and a wonderful atmophere. I attended a 60th birthday party there and found the food at the event to be outstanding. I especially enjoyed the pita bread and tzaziki. The pita was extremely fresh, the best in the Capital District! My other favorite was the lemon chicken soup. If you love fish, this is... More

Was in Albany on business and stopped in on a Monday night. The food and level of service were very good. Started with the calamari and would highly recommend it. It was the tenderest calamari I have ever had. Go with the spicy sauce instead of the marinara. While the title may be scary it is not Hot at all,... More

Read about this place and decided to stop by. I ordered horiatiki (salad), lamb kreatopita and for dessert my favorite- baklava. Service was good, I was surpised there were not many people...given the rating I expected something different. I reserved using open table. Definetly a new adventure.

One of the nicer family run restaurants in the Capital District. Staff is personal, menu appealing and something for everyone. Food is fresh and tastefully done.

I felt the food was extraordinary. However, on the night that I was there, the kitchen was slow. I'm pretty sure that this was not normal, as the very friendly waiter brought out a delicious complementary appetizer. Also, it was clear that a lot of patrons were regulars, and I doubt they would be if the food was always that... More
