From the moment my friend and I walked into this restaurant we were treated with terrific service. We were seated in a beautiful side room with a TV that alternated absolutely gorgeous pictures taken in Greece.Our very friendly server Charlie then introduced himself and shared with us the specials. We started with the Eggplant Rola which from the very first... More

We visited on a recent trip to Albany. This place is highly recommended...often coming up number 1 on restaurant searches in the area. The food and wine were quite good, we both had fish specials that were boned at the table. The service was OK...but the young lady that waited on us seemed stretched too far as to tables. We...

This is one of the best places to eat in the Capital region. We've been there many times and the food is always excellent. The place has authentic Greek food with fresh fish daily they will bring by and will grill for you. Their veal chops are to die for as well. Just excellent!

Our meal at Athos was truly one of the best we've had in years. And we eat out a fair amount. The wait staff clearly work as a team, going out of their way to be cheerful and unusually attentive. And our waiter Charlie was superb! Our appetizers and entrees were uniformly excellent - from the beautiful mix of herbs... More

This is the place to go for a great meal and excellent service. Had the braised lamb shank, amazing. The staff were friendly, attentive and just as it should be for a fine experience.

I have often wondered why it's so hard to find good seafood in the capital region. Look no further than Athos. Not only do they have excellent traditionally Greek options, but their grilled fish & seafood is amazing. Its also really easy to eat healthy & low-carb there, as they do some really unique vegetable appetizers. Love the octopus, cheesecake,... More

We always come here when we visit the Albany area... We ate here on July 3rd and it was fantastic! This is our 5th time eating at Athos! The food is always fresh and the atmosphere is nice too. We ordered a bunch of appetizers (Mezedes) and my husband got the arni youvetsi. We had a great server named Max,... More

Dinner here on June 30 - came from Montreal to see David Crosby at the Egg, and reserved through "Open Table" where we noted our need to leave by 7pm for the concert. Well, from the warm welcome when we entered the restaurant, when the hostess remarked that she knew we had to leave on time, to the world's best... More
