Four of us went for lunch and had 6 small plates to share. The shrimp was tasty as was the octopus, domades and gigantes. The cheese plate was really nothing special and tough and the sausage had an unfortunate spiciness to it. The real disappointment was the waitstaff and manager though. Brusk, unfriendly and not a pleasant dining experience. The... More

People come from outside the city to dine at this local favorite. I'm lucky enough to live a block away. The service is good. The food is excellent. Great for seafood lovers, too. You won't be disappointed. It does get a little tight in the restaurant but not too loud that you can't hear each other.

This visit was the most recent of several and we had a very enjoyable lunch. The grilled hot bread and hummus that comes to the table is delicious, as are the grilled fresh fish and salads with grilled shrimps or chicken. Even in December, the tomatoes were tasty and ripe, and the salad had only feta, tomatoes, onions, peppers and... More

Had a late lunch here with another couple on a Saturday. Our timing was great since the place while semi-busy wasn't packed. We were immediately seated while we waited for the other couple to arrive. When they did, we ordered wine and our dishes as we already knew what we wanted. We had a few appetizers, saganaki, imam and another... More

Not warmly greeted. Wait staff was friendly. Food was good, not great. Prices high. Alcohol prices VERY high. Felt cramped and rushed.

This is a festive lively place to eat with a good fish selection and excellent salads. I would skip the langostines and shrimp as our were mushy in a bad way, but the fish is great. We enjoyed the Branzini (sp). The waiters push Greek wine but it is way overpriced (65) and tastes like it cost 10. That is... More

Great Food specially the Octopus Salad! Prices is reasonable. We had the Lunch Pre-Fix for $29.00 and everything from salad to dessert are very good.

4 College roommates met in NYC for a great weekend. Our Friday night dinner was at Ethos - obviously a very popular spot. One of the friends had been there with family. In spite of reservations, we had to wait for the table - the maitre d' was a bit off-putting. The crowded bar and entrance made us feel 'in... More

We've been customers here for a number of years and so my wife wanted a birthday dinner here. 40 minutes before our reservation time they called (as we were leaving our apartment to drive there) saying "we can't honor your reservation!" This was a reservation made AND confirmed through Open Table. It was explained that the owner had just booked... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
