Lovely decor and lovely selection of food. As a bonus, everything was priced reasonably. Our server, Kevin, was outstanding (as well as the other servers there). He was extremely affable, attentive, but not overly attentive. I would recommend this restaurants to others without reservation.

This was our first--but certainly not our last-visit to Athos. We enjoyed a fresh, authentic Greek meal, wonderful atmosphere, and our server, Kevin, was superb. He was knowledgeable and professional, but also had a great sense of humor. We loved it!

The fried cheese app was flavorful a sturdy cheese crisped on top with a certain sharpness about it. The stuffed squash failed for me, overcooked mushy blobs I wondered had they been made days in advance and reheated for fast service. The salmon steak was over by a lot nothing special in flavor. The white fish was good wig capers... More

My son and our were on a driving trip looking at colleges. We were in town visiting RPI and had a Saturday night dinner free. After reading TA reviews, we decided this would be a fun place to visit. We had reservations, and I'm glad we did. We were told that it was completely booked for the night. The ladies... More

We loved this place. Food and service were wonderful. We are going back this weekend! I know that they have weekly specials also but we have not had a chance to make it there during the week yet.

We had a really fun mother daughter date at Athos tonight! We started out with a fabulous hummus rich in flavor and ended it with the perfect desert after Greek food, a baklava sundae that was sublime. Our waiter, Jay, truly elevated our experience in the most lovely way and was so knowledgable, engaging and kind to us. We had... More

Athos has been a favorite for a long time (we live in Albany), and my husband and I are never disappointed. He's recently become gluten-free, and to our surprise they have many options for him. The appetizers are scrumptious (grape leaves are my favorite) and the salads are divine--just the right amount of dressing. My husband loves the grilled fish... More
