I have traveled to Greece many times and have yet to find any other restaurant that serves their dishes with the love of the traditional Greek palette. My parents take me to Athos every time I visit Albany. The service is fantastic and you feel right at home. As for the food... The grilled octopus is a must! We order... More

Being gluten sensitive I usually opt for my own cooking. I was so pleasantly surprised with Athos Restaurant. Being only 5 minutes away I thought why hadn't I been there before? Full gluten-free menu with the options of other regular menu options. My sister and I were greeted by Heidi (sweet and helpful) and served by Kevin (sweet, helpful and... More

We had shorts and t=shirts on so we didn't want to eat in the main dining room so we ate at the bar. It seemed that they had an influx of people come in all... More

Went here for dinner with my sister's family when they came in from out-of-town. We had eaten Thanksgiving dinner here a few years ago and they liked it (I thought it was just okay), so they wanted to go back to it. Again I found it only "okay". There are some unusual appetizers on the menu, and all the usual... More
