Best lamb chops!

Pylos is a great find in the East Village -- sleek and casual with great food and good-sized portions. The service was excellent and even though there was a waiting line outside, we were not rushed (but I do recommend making a reservation). I am not a lamb lover, but the grilled lamb chops were... read more

I had an early dinner here with my wife and son. The food was excellent. I'll let others comment on that. It was the service on which I would like to comment. We're used to grumpy service in Greek restaurants. That pretty much goes with the territory. However, as this is a nice restaurant (not a Greek diner), we didn't... More

We went for dinner with my mother-in-law and college-aged daughter. All three generations were happy with the food: There are options for the more-adventurous palate and the less-adventurous palate. The waiter was very friendly and helped us choose a good bottle of Greek wine. The decor was casual but fun -- the ceiling covered by Greek urns. The strength of... More

This was a nice clean restaurant with good service and food and priced reasonable for NYC. We went for lunch and it wasn't busy as its busy for dinner.

The lamb short ribs were excellently cooked. I also tasted the lamb chop and it was also excellent. I've been in Europe for a few years and while the food was very good, I didn't get much of a "Greek" feel from this restaurant. The appetizers and seemed a bit eclectic, but again, the food was good. I will probably... More

Pylos was such a nice surprise. For a Monday night, they were booked solid and our group of three couldn't get a reservation. We were told that they have a communal table as an option for walk ins and we decided to give that a shot. From the outside Pylos didn't look like much but once you're inside, the place... More

We've been here a couple of times now and it's become our 'must visit' greek restaurants when visiting New York. Quaint location in the East Village; excellent authentic greek cuisine that never disappoints. You'll need a reservation! Enjoy.

Went out for a party with friends, I did not choose the restaurant but found it to be very elegant, which surprised me since we were in the Village. From the outside the ceiling looked like it was covered with giant elbow pasta, but come to find out they are ceramic bowls. We decided to get appetizers for the table... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
