Athos was voted one of the 50 Best Greek Restaurants in America by The National Herald. Casually elegant, Athos serves only the very freshest seasonal ingredients, lovingly brought together using time-honored recipes and techniques, like clay pot cooking, and whole fresh fish-filleted table-side.

We needed and wanted good food and Athos Restaurant was very good. Excellent food and services. When we're back in Albany, we'll come here again.

We went here on a whim last night because we were craving some Greek cuisine. We started with the dolmades. We got the warm/meat ones, and they were so incredibly flavorful and had the perfect texture. Then we got the salad. So incredibly fresh to the point where we had a conversation about who their distributor is, and how they... More

Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews. Started off with feta cheese and olives. Best feta I have ever tasted. Olives were delicious also. However, they should serve pitted olives as it is not very lady like to be spitting out olive pits. Main dish was SHRIMP GREKOLIMANO, jumbo shrimp, tomato sauce, feta cheese, and ouzo accompanied by pilaf, lemon... More

Having been to Athos several times, I have always been satisfied with my meal. The atmosphere is a little stuffy, the food is always good but not outstanding, but one dish that keeps me coming back is the musaca. I will be honest and say that I haven't tried all that Athos has to over and maybe there are some... More

First time at Athos after hearing about it from several friends. Had the whole branzinno char-grilled and filleted at the table--delicious and fresh. Our server Charlie was attentive, and made several excellent suggestions. Will definitely return.

Although the restaurant is lovely request a booth in the lively bar / taverna. We noshed on warm pita and hummus and sipped on specialty cocktails (Spiced Manhattan - really good!) before deciding on dishes. We shared Dolmathes (hand-rolled stuffed grape leaves with seasoned ground lamb, pine nuts and rice finished with a light and creamy lemon sauce), chopped salad,... More

Athos has both a bar and a separate restaurant area, so a place to suit most anyone. The bar can an be noisy but that does not intrude on the dining room. The DR is pleasant and not overly cramped. Most importantly, the food is well prepared and well above they typical fare for Mediterranean. We had a variety of... More

Been there a couple times and have been impressed with the food. Highly recommend the place for a date night...or even the family. We took our baby with us and there were three other babies there too. Fancy, but not too fancy a place.

Had a meal here with my mother a few months back and was very pleased. Having to eat gluten free keeps me away from most places but I was happy to find out my waiter was very knowledgeable about my needs and made sure that my food was prepared safely! The meal itself was very good. Only downside is that... More
